Perhaps we should send the sons and daughters of our so-called leaders in Washington to the front, and see how long this war on terror lasts. Would it be prudent to close our borders till our crisis has ended? Would you like to see Cheney's daughter defending freedom and liberty?

Yes, send the sons and daughters of those in Congress. Or even send those in Congress directly.

Speaking of Congress, has anyone considered the consequences of having to tell the retired generation that there's no more money because Bush spent (threw it away) in Iraq? Looks to me like these old farts should get with the program and vote those Republicans OUT!

GWB is mad, I swear! If we marched into Switzerland and bombed it and ousted its leader, they would fight too. We have meddled in middle east affairs since, what, 1947 when we made the country of Israel? We have military bases on Islamic soil... what do we need a base in Saudi Arabia for? Or in Turkey? No wonder they are pissed. Then he really wants to fire them up, saying Hezbollah lost... what' he thinking? Or is he thinking at all?

Iraq has nothing to do with terrorism. I'm sick of Bush trying to make this bogus connection. If he wants to do something about terrorism, where's Osama? Bush tries to paint himself as tough on terror, but he's a weakling. Some 97 percent of cargo containers coming into this country are still completely unchecked. Osama is still running around at large. The deficit is out of control. Gas prices are going through the roof. Bush is a failure. 2009 can't get here soon enough.

A man desperately trying to hold on to a lost cause. This President needs a mental evaluation. He is not in his right state of mind. Seriously. He is not playing with a full deck anymore.

George lives in cloud-cuckoo-land. Seems we had another republican president who also lived there, so, sad to say, it has happened before. However, don't despair, because the Republicans have lot's of experience propping up and programming puppets.

The world has changed dramatically since the Iranian President Ahmadinajad was elected a year ago. Since then Iran started a very aggressive plan to destroy Israel and control the Middle East. The new Iranian president works together with Ayatollah Khumanie to build a force of suicide bomber Shiites Islamic terrorists that were sent to Iraq as the Mehdi Army. Another major change is the recent war in Lebanon against Hezbollah Islamic terrorists who are proxy of Iran, that showed the serious nature of Iran who wish to destroy Israel, kill the Jews and millions of infidels and Islamic innocent people. Obviously, it is true that the White House could not imagine the rapid changes in the Islamic fascism led by Iran during 2005-2006 when US invaded Iraq on April 2003. However, with the new changes in the Middle East, now is the time to change US policy in Iraq, and make the adjustment to US strategy towards Iran. US military need to stop fighting the sectarian war in the streets of the cities of Iraq. US military involvement in Iraq should be limited only to protect the government of Iraq, and it should be done from US remote bases in Iraq and Kuwait. In the same time 40-50% of the US troops or about 50,000 troops will finish their service in Iraq and will be reassign for the new challenges in the Middle East, namely Iran President and supreme leader Ayatollah Khumanie which are each the ‘head of the snake’ that must be stopped.

US troops are already fighting Iran during the last year through the Iranian proxy, which is the Shiite a Sadr Mehdi Army. This is an Iranian backed army with IEDs and sophisticated Russian munitions from Iran and with the support of 40,000 Iranian suicide bombers that easily cross the border to Iraq. Next Wednesday is an important milestone for the UN Security Council and US when defiant Iran will deny the demand to stop the enrichment of Uranium. Some sources mention coming Tuesday, which is a major holiday to Muslim, related to their prophet re-appearance, as a day that Iran will show its military missile advancements, following a major military show of the Iranian army, which started yesterday.
US will take advantage of Iranian defiance and refusal to stop its dangerous nuclear arms plan, which is coordinated with N. Korea. US will therefore bring three or more of the largest aircraft carriers to Hormuz to block and to control the Iranian bound export and import ships. US will also prepare a massive aircraft attack on the nuclear facilities and will destroy them whenever necessary. The conflict between US and Iran will move to an operational stage, and will move the main effort of US military from Iraq to Iran. If Iran president will attack Israel or US, US will destroy the Iranian nuclear facilities by air strikes, and will punish Iran severely with the help of Israel. The result of Iranian attack will be that Iran will look much worse that Lebanon today. Iran will have to start rebuilding its infrastructure from 'scratch' after US and Israel self defense attack that will bring Iran back to the way it looked 500 years ago, if the madman ugly dwarf of Iran will try to attack Israel or US.

Obviously, you haven't noticed the percentage of posters that don't believe the gunk anymore. I guess it's time for Mr. Bush to conconct another terrorist plot in the subway. Yes, the man is THAT desperate.

Ayatollah Khamenei is clearly the ‘head of the snake’ who pathetically desires to poison the entire world with Iranian nuclear bombs. It is about time that the White House will explicitly declare the threat from this barbarian madman who seek killing of millions of people. The danger to the world as we know it today is imminent, and once the free world will be attacked, the world that we know today will disappear forever. Ayatollah Khamenei quest is to die as a martyr and go to another world according to the Islamic belief. However, Khomanie will be awarded to go to that world by his ‘Alla’ as Islamic leader only if he kills as many innocent Jews, Christians and Muslims as possible. The large scale ‘show’ of military missile power of Iranian army ‘training’ that started yesterday and does not have an ending date, proves the seriousness of the Islamic pathetic leadership to take over the Middle East, destroy Israel and the Jews and kill millions of infidels and Muslims as called upon in the Koran. It is about time that US will move three or more of the largest US Aircraft Carriers to Hormuz and start to control the Iranian ships export and import of munitions and nuclear arms from North Korea and missiles addressed to Hezbollah Islamic terrorists in Lebanon, and also explosives and anti-tank missiles to Hamas Islamic terrorists in Gaza. Tuesday, August 22, 2006 is a symbolic Islamic date for Ayatollah Khamenei, which is called Mabath and is related to their prophet. On Tuesday, Israel and US might be subjected to a severe missile attack ordered by Khamenei that will start nothing less than a world war III of the free world against Iran.

Wow, brilliant analogy. Switzerland. Hey, did you know that the girl yodeler on "America, You've Got Talent" lost? I think that's why the Muslims are pissed. Or is it the Swiss?

Keep trying to chant your war drums. This is exactly what will get you voted out in November. You and the Republican party are clueless, as usual.
