Don't see any absolute right or wrong in this, but if there was, it would be wrong to condemn people as traitors for questioning and, yes, even opposing the government line. What is wrong with you? I thought the freedom to express opinions was central to America's very existence.

Information was given since the late 1990's saying that Saddam had WMD. Everyone had that information, but nothing to the contrary, so assumptions were made that the info was solid. Faulty intellignece came from the CIA and FBI, so any of their info becomes questionable, even that re: a Saddam-Al Quaeda connection.
As for Powell, he did his job based on evidence that was accepted at the time as being true. He stepped down because he knew the plans for Iraq weren't in order, no contingency at all, just a bunch of worst case scenarios with no plans for any of them, much less the insurgency afterward, and a civil war to boot. Rumsfeld had final input on how many troops it would take and on the planning and of course his generals agreed with him. Hell, Powell even had the first Bush admin slacked jawed when he told them it would take about half a million troops to secure SA and to oust Saddam from Kuwait during the first Gulf War, and that wasn't even taking in consideration going into Baghdad to overthrow Saddam which was never part of the plan anyway.
This time though, there was no clear mission and the admin should've listened to Powell. The Defense Dept failed miserably in its planning, or lack thereof rather. Our intelligence failed miserably obviously. While I do agree that a President should have solid evidence to present to the people, Bush presented the evidence that had been touted for years before he came to office even and almost every single member of Congress supported it. Maybe the few who didn't, knew the intelligence wasn't reliable, but the majority rules and they thought it was solid also.
I don't like a lot of things Bush does, but all the blame can not honestly be placed on him. The whole admin, yes. That is where the blame lies. And it would be an illegal war, had war ever been undeclared after ousting Saddam from Kuwait. Since it hadn't, we had technically been at war with Iraq for years anyway.
I do not support this war, but we must put things in perspective rather than irrationally spouting hateful remarks regarding our leaders. Even if it is Bush.
I respect your opinion and it ws well put. When I speak of bush I also include his adnimistration. after the first war in Iraq everything was destroyed. assumptions were made but there was never any proof.

Liberals blind hatred of President Bush does have a plus side: they do not know what is going on in the world today.
Historically President bush is fighting the very same internal battle with liberals that President Roosevelt fought prior to and during the 2nd WW.
The rhetoric and in some cases the same political families are repeating the very same talk and actions.
Fortunately the "United Sates of America" maages to have a President that can stand and do the right thing required to protect this nation.
You have to realize that many spewing their hatred and nothing else would not believe events if they were there to observe it first hand.
Example: In Florida during the presidential election, the Democrats went to court to throw out absentee ballots cast by the military.
I personally heard a Democrat, years later on a talk show, state that the Republicans tried to stop the counting of the military absentee ballots.
Liberals in their rush to PC, would destroy the traditions that has allowed this nation to flourish and grow into the "Greatest" nation the world history has ever known.
The mantle of truth will never be on the shoulders of the liberal elitists.
The ignorant masses are the liberals greatest assest. Empty minded and grasping at straws to undermine thi great nation "Under God".

You're correct. The freedom to express opinions is central to America's existence. In fact, it's so important, the framers of the Constitution put this freedom first in the Bill of Rights.
Unfortunately, the Bush administration has demonstrated nothing but contempt for the Constitution and half of the country follows their lead like lemmings.

Who agreed? All of congress and they all voted for it! you jackarse. Get your facts straight before you start spewing your propoganda. And BinLaden is not a fan of Bush. He is in love with Hilary. And why don't you worry about your own cess pool of a country before you worry about ours. I do have room for an alternative view, just not one that is based on erroneous info and based on lies. Get a clue!
Sorry, thought you were trying to suggest that the US managed to find many other countries (scrub the deputies in UK and Australia) who agreed there were WMD in Iraq? Most of the world couldn't care less about your country's domestic squabbling. So, you say one bunch of American politicians agreed with another group? Doesn't add much in terms of veracity.
Did try to find a "cess pools" thread, but yours was the closest match.

I would like to personally thank the prez. Thank you for standing up for what we americans know ith the truth. It must be difficult to stand for what is right and what may not be popular. We will never know the pain you feel for the terrible choice you had to make to send troops into harms way. Most of know why you did and understand. It was not for us, but for our children and future generations. Just as the great generation did, so will this generation. They will fight the good fight against terror, hate and oppression.
All of your closet allies have been assasinated by the dems in their attempt to ruin america. What is next? Why will they not stand for what is right? The border was problem long before you took office. I can only imagin how a "hillary" type office will open the flood gate.
Please keep up the good work. Thank you Mr.President. There are still some good americans that belive in you.
you are stupid if you believe this.

WOW What a lie. The military votes that shouldn't have been counted were mailed DAYS and WEEKS later, IT WAS ILLEGAL TO COUNT THEM. You can't vote after the fact, fool.
But keep telling your lies, although, you will get in trouble with God for telling them.
BTW Under God was added by those freaks like you during the RED SCARE, facist.

I actually live in Florida and I was here to observe the election "first hand".
There was some controversy over the validity of some of the absentee voting but it actually had to do with duplicate ballots.
There was also some controversy over Republican pollsters going door to door in poor, black, and hispanic neighborhoods distributing misinformation about polling places and voting rights. There was one incident where a Republican canvasser was actually telling people that he was carrying with him, absentee ballots that they could fill out and return to him to save them a trip to the polls.
I guess none of that made it to the news in St. Louis, Mo.

Your president is evil. Your government is evil. Your citizens are brainwashed on every issue. I would like to believe most of your population are rational thinkers like we are in canada. If you've ever travelled the world and even lived abroad you would see how diiferent the world really is compared to the fish bowl you live in. The U.S. is consumed by greed and taking everything it can with the least amount of effort with maximum gains. unlike you i have an opinion on what goes on in the world and have made my own conclusions.
Been to Canada. Been to Europe. Seen the world. Big f-ing deal. People are the SAME everywhere. Funny to hear a canadian toot their own horn. Your taxes are TWICE as much and your cost of living is twice as much as ours. You can keep it, AYE?

Why are Canadians so nasty and angry and envious of Americans? You definitely spend more time thinking about us then we do thinking about you because you are so forgettable. A nation of wallflowers. Angry wallflowers.

Thank you.
That guy needs to watch Bush's Brain.
Some of them would call people and tell them the wrong day to vote.
It all boils down to, the righteous don't need to lie.
