I'm glad he's got the jewels to stand up for the right thing. All we need now is to put Harry Reid on a terror watch. As much as he likes these morons, it wouldn't surprise me if Osama was a personal friend!

his plan failed yrs ago... the current mess in Iraq is not what he bargained for and he doesn't know what to do. He's already failed. Time to cut our losses.

Harry Reid annonced to the world that the United States had been defeated in this war. Nacy Pelosi went to Syria to "open dialog" with a terrorist supporting rogue nation.[Personally I think the military should take both on a personal fact finding trip all expenses paid. Then push them out of the plane at 10, 500 feet with a parachute on of course and let them drift into enemy hands. They like them anyway ... that was a joke by the way. Seriously Pelosi and Reid and Durban and Kucinch should be tried with treason] The idea that the US "lost" is absurd

why do we even care. what does iraqi freedom have to do with 911? Does anyone realize we aren't even fighting the same war we were? I understand that conditions are bad for them, but they suck for us too! Why the hell does our country get put on the back burner all the time by OUR OWN. Jesus...

If 150,000 US troops and 100,000 mercenaries the US taxpayer pays 5 times the rate of a US troop, (an abomination), can't secure Iraq, there is no way in hell any amount of Iraqi troops could. The tactic is to lay the failure at Iraqs' feet and blame their government for the disaster. The only timetable that should be legislated as far as troop withdrawal goes is one that insists on an immediate withdrawal. US occupation of Iraq IS the problem. The commander-in-chief of the US armed forces has had 4 years of everything he's asked for and has failed to secure the situation. It's apparent he made the wrong decision when he decided that 150,000 troops would be an adequate amount and that blunder has cost this nation thousands of good men and womens' lives and hundreds of billions of dollars we don't have. The Bush administration is scrambling to throw the blame elsewhere, whether with the US puppet government in Baghdad, or by laying it on the next president of the US. Bush talks tough while he is the most protected man on the face of this Earth. That takes absolutely zero guts.

HERE WE GO AGAIN! Bush huffs about veto of the Iraq exit bill while the Pentagon claims to have another TOP al Qaeda operative. Even the Saudis--(U.S. Tax dollars support Saudi Arabia with Billions, even though the 911 murderers were Saudi nationals) are claiming to have captured some terrorists. Sounds like they're picking up some fall-guys to make it seem like they're "fighting terrorism". Evil! Evil! Evil! GET OUT of the Iraq CIVIL War. We've BLED ENOUGH BLOOD! Is Saudi Arabia's Osama bin Laden still hiding out? Could bin Laden be home in Saudi Arabia in one of those comfy palaces while our Troops Die or get their gentalia, limbs, eyes, and brains blown up? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! My God!

It was stupid to go into Iraq, but it's also stupid to pull out now. Our losses are actually quite small compared to prior wars. The press is just using this to sell newspapers and TV/internet spots and the Democrats are just using it to try to gain more power.

Get It Right, Before Last Election, The DEMOCRATS were Asked Where is your plan. But, BUSHIES Plan Was A SECRET Because You Don't Tell The Enemy Your Plan, This is called wanting your cake and EAT it. Then After Election on (NATIONAL TELEVISED LIBERAL MEDIA) Boy BUSH ANNOUNCED TROOP SURGE, Again having cake and eat it. This I have to Guess was in hopes attacks would subside and MISSION ACCOMPLISHED could be DECLARED (AGAIN).(7 years) of TOTAL CONTROL of ALL BRANCHES of FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (7 YEARS). YET The LIBERALS are to Blame for all the ill's caused by the IMMORRAL and ILLEGAL war,(POPE JOHN PAUL). REID also calls for TROOPS Being READY. Not you go to war with what you GOT,(RUMSFELD) way to support the TROOPS!! Now Returned VETS With PHYSICAL INJURIES are being Called mental health problems preexisting. To save HUNDREDS of MILLIONS, Way to SUPPORT The TROOPS. All The Refugees in IRAN, SYRIA, TURKEY, ETC. GREAT Foriegn POLICY, I'm Sure The Liberals caused that too. Is This in the RNC hand book for FOLLOWERS with BLINDERS ON?? All The Thousands of Lives And Families Ruined, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED?? The FISCAL CONSERVATIVES Reformed Earmarks OVER 6000 Since Year 2000, no VETOES THEN... IRAQ is Now a NEWLY Created WELFARE STATE, Did The LIBERALS Infiltrate The REPUBLICAN PARTY ?? The (PARTY of THE BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT). Another infiltration?? APPARENTLY, REID,PELOSI,and HILLARY have been running the budget and military for the last 7 years and you all have been FOOLS. NOW I GET IT, In order to get the CONSERVATIVES in CONTROL I have to VOTE LIBERAL...

Duhhhhhhhhhh! It appears to be working dodo. These same Democrats have taken both houses, and have now begun taking apart Bush's little play house. One by one, the dominoes are starting to fall, beginning with "Scooter" and will not stop until Bush and Cheney's asses are in the slammer at Gitmo. I'd say they're sure as hell gaining more power, wouldn't you??? "PAYBACK IS A !@#$%^&*".

In my opinion Bush will drag this out until his term is over. That way he can blame his failure on anothers actions.

The biggest problem with the "war" in Iraq is the same as the Vietnam "war", the civilians are running it. The politicians (civilians) should get their butts out of the way and let the military do what they need to do to win this war. If they had done that, it would have been over long ago instead of going on and on.

The Democrats are just trying to humilate the President. It is an exercise is raw power. Where is the bi-partisan cooperation? There is none. The Democrats are walking in circles.

Try this for a failed policy:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippines
The Spanish-American War began in Cuba in 1898 and soon reached the Philippines when Commodore George Dewey defeated the Spanish squadron at Manila Bay. Aguinaldo declared the independence of the Philippines on June 12, 1898, and was proclaimed head of state. As a result of its defeat in the War, Spain ceded the Philippines, together with Cuba (made an independent country, the US in charge of foreign affairs), Guam and Puerto Rico to the United States. By 1899, the Philippine-American War ensued between the United States and the Philippine revolutionaries, which continued the violence of the previous years. The US proclaimed the war ended when Aguinaldo was captured by American troops on March 23, 1901, but the struggle continued until 1913. The country's status as a colony changed when it became the Commonwealth of the Philippines in 1935, which provided for more self-governance. Plans for increasing independence over the next decade were interrupted during World War II when Japan invaded and occupied the islands. After the Japanese were defeated in 1945, the Philippines achieved independence from the United States on July 4, 1946.[6]

Do you realize Osama Bin Ladin and crew attacked the US on 9/11 because of US troops in Saudi Arabia which were there to protect Saudi Arabia from Saddam?

You might wanna mind your tone there smknjoeb. When was the last time you heard Bush talk about catching up to Bin Laden? I thought not. If you'd done your damn homework (before posting stupid comments) you'd already know that the entire Bin Laden family (including Osama) has been (and is still) quite chummy with the Bushes for a great number of years. Don't take my word for it, do some objective research on your own, and then come back here and post more intelligently. I fully understand that you Bushies haven't much else left besides talk, but one would think that you'd at least get your facts together, for a change.
