Both Bush and Cheney should be impeached and then "deployed" to Iraq for getting us into this war based on lies and false info.

And if they survive, stand trial for war crimes.

You are both neophytes. Ignorance of foreign policy now dominates our culture thanks to the Dems.

The US must remain present in the middle east to maintain our supply of oil.
Not that we should still be dependant on oil, but we are. The troops are fighting there to maintain our way of life as they swore an oath to, as did I.

To just pull out and leave the entire middle east to the Iranians is treasonest at best disasterous at worst. You will see our economy crumble and a slip into recesion and even depression.

There was and is a need for change in that region for our own best interests and any government has a duty to operate in its countries best interest not Iraq's not Iran's not freaking Europe or Israel's but the USA's best interest.

Only violence creates change. This is true now more than ever with the animals we are facing in Iraq/Iran.

Wake up people. It is the future of the country at stake.

This is certainly a different version than the US government one. Maybe it is more honest. It sort of ignores the fact the other soverign nations do not like to be invaded for our SUVs and may resist. This can (and has) cost trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. We have lots more lives, but are running pretty short on dollars.

"Only violence creates change. This is true now more than ever with the animals we are facing in Iraq/Iran." How sad that you believe that and what a ridiculous a statement it is. Jesus changed the world preaching peace and loving one's neighbor. Ghandi saved his country by preaching peace and non-violence. Only a sad and pathetic person would claim violence is the only answer to the world's problems.
We went to war based on lies and now people defend the war with lies. Guess Hitler was right, the bigger the lie, the more people will belive it.

I stand corrected. You have sighted the only two examples in world history I can think of, of peace creating change on a global scale. Even the change Jesus brought was eventually a violent one. How about the Mayan's demise, The Crusades, The Inquisition, The slaughter of the Cathars in France, just as a few examples. Organized religion has far nore blood on it's hands than even Hitler could have imagined.
