Wrong era, this isn't WWII, A 20 megaton H-bomb would vaporize baghdad. Nice of you to put such little value on U.S. soldiers.

Would I care what they think under these circumstances, not hardly.

What military ambitions? People hate America for lot's of different reasons, most completely undeserved.
