    The world toward which the Militant Islamists strive cannot peacefully co-exist with the Western world. In the last decade, Militant Islamists have repeatedly attacked Americans and American interests here and abroad. The terrorists must be stopped and destroyed.
    LIBERAL-
    9/11 was caused by America's arrogant foreign policy. America needs to stop angering other countries. The threat posed by terrorism is exaggerated by President Bush for his own political advantage.
    So what do I have to be thankful to the right for ??? (please read the thread it is not a bashing or "The Difference between the two thread")

    This was a preemptive strike to protect the U.S. All intelligence indicated that Saddam Hussein possessed and used weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in the past and was prepared to use them again. He would not allow United Nations weapons inspectors to confirm his claim that he had destroyed his WMDs.
    A democracy can succeed in Iraq if the people are given the opportunity to create one. All people want to live in freedom.
    LIBERAL-
    This is Bush's war for oil. Saddam Hussein was no real threat. We have not found weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), so Saddam did not have any. President Bush lied about WMDs and the dangers posed by Saddam. We should have given the UN more time. We have alienated the rest of the world by our unilateral action (‘go it alone' attitude).

    A democracy can't succeed in Iraq. Not everyone wants to live in a democracy.

    Desire clean water, clean air and a clean planet, just like everyone else. However, extreme environmental policies destroy jobs and damage the economy.
    Changes in global temperatures are natural over long periods of time. So far, science has not shown that humans can affect permanent change to the earth's temperature.
    LIBERAL-
    Conservatives don't care about protecting the environment.
    Industrial growth harms the environment.
    Global warming is caused by an increased production of carbon dioxide. The U.S. is a major contributor to global warming because it produces 25% of the world's carbon dioxide. The U.S. should enact laws to significantly reduce that amount.
    See above quote... So far all I've seen is the dollar is more important than peoples lives Maybe that is the contrast between the two. But then again this thread was not about the difference,,
    was it ??

    Give me a reason to thank a conservative other than my right to pack heat...
