If the Iraq war was wrong, why didn't Britain and the rest of the world stopped the USA?

    It destabilized the country, led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, created ISIS, caused a mass migration, which has spilled over Europe and are making Europeans very angry and most nations in the world were against it!

    But if most nations of the world were against it, why didn't these nations save Iraq and the people there and stopped the US, through force if necessary?

    This shouldn't be in general.

    Also, you're a knob.

    So your solution would have been a world war, which you believe would have been both more popular and less bloody than what happened

    Because our grammar war stoppers double up as grammar Nazis and were otherwise engaged dealing with thread titles like yours. So in some way you are culpable. You monster.

    Also, it popularised desert camouflage, both on genuine surplus stuff and cheap knockoffs. I think we can all agree the pale sandy yellow is far more stylish that the old woodland green stuff.
    So there is that.

    Is this one of the promised "other questions that will pop your logic"? Or are those coming later, after this matter is cleared up?

    The recent threads remind me of the months after 9/11, when lots of Americans and a few Canadians turned up here because they wanted to have a go at the America-haters.

    The worst were the ones from the South, who had this weird manner of exaggerated politeness and generally turned out to be massive racists.

    Have you considered undertaking a course of study on the subject of modern international relations? You will find that a whole lot more enlightening than asking randoms on the internet.

    I love the capricciosa pizza that they do at Corrieri’s in Stirling. Mushroom, artichokes, peppers and olives. And lots of black pepper. Wonderful. And it’s great to have it without the ham that some places customarily put on it.

    If you’re eating in, they give you parmeggiano to sprinkle liberally on it too. And I sometimes go for the insalata mista on the side.

    But if I’m taking away, I’ll just throw together some leaves and beetroot at home.

    You tell us what you think. Though whether or not 'think' accurately describes what you do is, as I have mentioned, another moot point.

    Does spinach work? I didn't like it as a kid as my mum insisted on boiling it down to slime. Genuinely never occurred to me you could eat it like lettuce. Love it now, it's so versatile and good for you.

    It's quite hard to spot a dictator when he's hiding behind a green and brown pizza ;)

    Not if he's signalling 'I'm over here' to Goebbels.

    Just give the mods a shout if everyone gets bored with these simplistic troll/stupid threads created by some lying buffoon in Australia.

    Spinach is great. I use it in pasta, curry, salad, omelette, it’s superb stuff.

    I'm supposed to be doing some painting this morning / afternoon, so can you - and others - do the prodding until I get back ?

    Sorry, I missed this important point. It’s because he liked Dr Oetker frozen pizza, which he’d buy in Aldi. There’s nothing you can do to beat those prices.
