HOW THE DEMOCRATES ARE PLAYING YOU FOR A FOOL.
Do you really think that any democrate wants to end this war? All they have to do is one of two things.
1. Cut off funding for the war.
2. Hold a vote to withdraw from Iraq.
Have you seen either of these vote comming up? All they want to do is bash Bush since they have no grounds for impeachment.
Hence-'slow bleed'.

OK lets say that they set a time table to pull out of Iraq. EX. July 1 2008 what does that say to the terrorists. Lets wait until July 2 and then we will start our reign of terror all over. What a dumb idea to set a time table. We are doing the best that we can with the situation at hand. How many people have died in previous wars (more than in the Iraqi Conflict). Also what would've happened if every time things were not going our way we just pulled out. That would make us look weak. That is what terrorists prey on. Maybe the objective of the war did change but who cares we caught Saddam and almost all of his militia. We have caught many other terrorists that were not invloved with the original conflict as well. What if we did what congress is asking and pull out, what if we had that same approach over here. What if the war on drugs just wasnt going so well and we just said, oh well just forget it. What if we had the mind set that just because this wasn't the problem we were trying to solve that if another problem comes up we should try and take care of it at the same time. What would happen then, we would be overrun with problems more than we already have. We do every day here what is being done in Iraq and nobody says anything about it. This is just a tool for political leverage and something else for people to bitch about. Our troops are working their asses off to protect us and our freedoms and all everyone is saying is that because the problem is not solved we should tell them they have to quit. Quit is not a word taken lightly in the military. We dont quit, we dont back down, and we should not pull out because we were sent to do a job and until that job is done we will not quit. God Bless our troops (no matter how many of you say you say you support them and their efforts but behind their backs to do otherwise.) And dont respond to this if you are gonna tell me a story about how you have a family member in the military and you want them to come home becaus when they signed up they knew what they were doing and waht the possibilities were. My brother, uncles, grandfathers, cousins have all been in the military and my brother just got back from 2 tours in Iraq and 1 in Afgahan. with the Army Rangers. He knew what he had to do he did it to the best of his ability and when it was time for him to come home he did. He served proudly just like all other members of our military. So dont give me that crap.
Finally... after months searching... I find someone who not a left/right wing nut who is disconnected when it comes to the military.

One phrase for everybody- OPSEC

You won't see that in Congress.

In my opinion Bush will drag this out until his term is over. That way he can blame his failure on anothers actions.
I think you got that one right. Bush blamed everything that happened the first six years of his Presidency on Clinton and he'll blame everything that happens his last two years on the Democratic Congress or his successor.

The real losers will be Jay Leno and Dave Letterman. Bush and his Scandal of the Week have given them material for the last six years. What will they do when he goes out of office?

And what in the hell do you know? John Kerry represented the "WINTER SOLDIERS" over 1000 strong. He did it in spite of the fact many said it would hurt him in the future. It took courage. It came out after the election on the "back" pages that the Swift Boat Liars were just that. Why not read his words.

He would have made one hell of a lot better president than Bush that stole 2 elections.

I wish that all of you who are opposed to the war and are angry over the way this adminisration is handling it. Would use some of that anger at the democrates that support embyronic stem cell research, partial-birth abortion and all other forms of abortion; gay marriage, civil unions and all the other evil things that they stand for. They don't care anything about this war. If they did they would stop it now. 50 million babies have died since 1973. Stop that war.

Ryan, 1st off, I don't think that we are doing so well with this war on drugs. In fact, I don't think that the war on drugs even exists. Maybe there was a time when it did with Nancy Reagan, but not any longer. Just my opinion. As far as a time table on the war is concered, I'm not sure what the right answer is. Eventually, we have to get out and let Iraq have their country back. Wars come to an end. We can't continue to go at this pace. I'm sure we are gaining ground. Where, I have no idea. If we were having any real success, the White House would be making damn sure that we were all hearing about it. To me, the silence about any success from the White House is the most telling of how Iraq is going. I believe that the dems are hurting progress with their constant road blocks. But I will also say that Bush's management of the war has been atrocious. You need to believe in your leader and Bush is a tough sell. I believe we need to eat some crow and seek the help of the UN. To me, it's obvious that this thing is absolutely screwed up and nobody seems to know what to do next.

I agree with you, but that is a different discussion for a different thread.

Time to impeach both Cheney and Bush, and Tenet if that can be done. Just read the letter to Tenet from exCIA personnel. "The intelligence was fixed". This is worse than anything others have been impeached for: "Lying to the American People."

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.
I only want to say that it is not Bush as you say- but many countries and the U.N. was in on it also. Everyone tries to blame it on one person. It just doesn't work that way. Do you think we would have had more terrorist acttacks if we had not done something? The men and women that volunteered to join the service believe it and they believe they are helping. Then again it took forever for anyone to decide to help stop the Nazi's. When do we know for sure when we should step forward and when we shouldn't? I am sure glad I don't have to make the call.

Bush has no JEWELs It is Harry that is correct. Bush does not know what diplomacy or truth or honor mean. He hid in the Guard when vietNam was going on and if it was not for his daddy would have been court martialled. He lied and decieved us. Several of those who are no longer with him, like his former Sec of the treasure, The CIA chief and others have said he had the invasion of Iraq planned long before 911.

You think it's like flipping on a switch. Maybe magic. Presto... surge worked. Is that what you think? I think our military has been more successful in three months (even with the "surge" not yet in place) than Congress. Almost half of the new Congress's first 100 hours of legislation still need to pass the the Senate. Should I evaluate that Congress has failed in their first three 1/2 months? You people should keep your armchair, quarterback generalship to yourselves. Have you ever heard of the term 'more chiefs than indians'?
I have a sense that the people truly do not respect the military. By the way, sir, what do you do for a living?
No, not like flipping a switch, more like Uncle Sam becoming the 'new' Saddam Hussain. And talking about "armchair quarterbacks," just what do you think Bush IS? And your escalation,(surge) will just need another escalation in six months, because there will be light at the end of the tunnel, by then. And then another; until the year 2399.

At the beginning of this sick lie-fest in Iraq, Bush fired the military people who disagreed with Rumsfeld's 'small, light, army" concept. Don't you remember? That is ARMCHAIR FULLBACKING.
The lying neo-conservatives ARE the armchair quarterbacks here. The remaining Generals are just yes-men, not unlike Hitler's general staff in 1945.

And, don't tell me that you didn't know, as I knew, that the "surge" was really an ESCALATION with a cheap paint job (lie.)

Here is how it should go, if you are so into process:

Let Bush bring a formal Bill of Declaration of War to Congress.
Then, if it passes, the lying neo-conservatives will have a leg to stand on, with these BALONY arguments. In other words, "MISSION ACCOMLISHED."

In the mean time, the real objective is met. The unrest in the middle east and loss of Iraqi petroleum has pushed the price of GASOLINE over $3.35/gal. Anain, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Believe me, I not only respect our military, I treasure them so muck, that I stand against their being used to make the rich richer, and the poor poorer. If Bush EVER wanted to go to war against "TERRORISM," he would have invaded the homeland of his'Saudi cousin,' Prince "BANDAR BUSH."

I wish those like you who condemn our soldiers t death and dismemberment would posture less, and really, really think more. You are a dilettante, with your cheap, cowboy rheteric. How little you care.

And I am a very large computer mechanic.

And you, and your tough-talking, AWOL-going Dry-drunk, chicken-hawk, "president" are killing out army for DOLLARS.

And, the support bill is on the way to the president's desk. A president who will veto it, thereby abandoning the troops to make political points, in a game he has been already caught cheating at.

I'll say that another way, in case you are a sports fan: G.W. Bush is the Jason Giambi of presidents.
