Indeed. If people check their history books, there's a heck of a lot of natural disasters from past centuries, and there was no Industrial Age back then to blame them on.
Someone compared car pollution to an airplane. Yep. They keep wanting to make cars more and more enviro-friendly, but they're already very clean. Last I read, it's basically impossible to die in an enclosed area like a garage with a car running anymore. I always wonder if Al Gore keeps the air-conditioning turned off to protect the environment when riding around in his limo.
How come many scientists say global warming is a myth and how come many scientists say we're headed for an ice age? If nothing else, people should at least be able to agree that there isn't much of an agreement one way or the other on the issue of global warming.
Re: Iraq. Saddam disregarded I think 17 UN resolutions. Remember that part in "Team America" where the guy says, "If you don't do what we say, we will get very, very mad at you and write you another letter!"? Kind of the same thing. Since the resolutions weren't abided by, the original Iraq war never actually ended. The UN is a worthless waste of space anyway, though.
I think Bush2 was pretty much damned if he did and damned if he didn't. He's not my favorite guy, but he certainly had a lot of crap dumped into his lap.
