I was there and your wrong. We were there way before the Gulf Of Tokin inncedent. The war was started by Kennedy and LBJ. When Nixon was elected he wanted to bomb Hanoi into submission and win the war which was under control put victory AKA taking over north vietnam wasnt allowed. We just sent our boys into the jungle with thier M-16s and some beer. The original purpose under the guise of stopping communisim was HEROIN. The CIA was using the Heroin trade to fund its activities in Cuba and central america. You are right about one thing we pulled out let south Vietnam be overrun and made ourselves look weak and emboldened the Russians AKA Afghanistan.
Nope, check your history, Wyojake is 100% correct. What part of that reply can be applied to today’s situation? Alienating the Iraqi population, military “miscalculating”, and dividing the country. GWB though a war would unite Americans. Wrong again.

John Ashcroft, he is from MO, a man who lost his senate seat to a corpse. It is easy for CHICKENHAWKS like you to want other people's children to die in a civil war.
So when can US troops come home from Iraq, when they are all dead? There is over one thousand years of hatred between Sunnis and Shiites. The US cannot do anything about this hate! Our troops are now caught in the middle of a civil war. For our troops it is a no win situation!
If draft-dodgers, Bush & Cheney care so much about our troops, why have they not attended one single funeral or memorial service for any US service members that have been killed in Afghanistan or the Iraq civil war?

Mr. Tenet expresses puzzlement that, since 2001, Al Qaeda has not sent “suicide bombers to cause chaos in a half-dozen American shopping malls on any given day.”

“I do know one thing in my gut,” he writes.“Al Qaeda is here and waiting.”

This is how it is...

1. Bush lied.
2. Innocent people died for his lies.
3. Bush is a manipulative fool.
4. Bush had to use his role to take revenge on Saddam for threatening daddy.
5. Bin Laden is still out there free because Bush turned the attention away from him.

How about Bush with all his wisdom, suit up and head on over across the ocean and fight his own battle.

And dont tell me I am anti american. I am anti Bush. Big difference.

Another LEGACY.....
All righty the, riddle me this. Why was old GWB trying to cut the pay raise for the military in 2004 from about 3.7% to 2%? http://www.estripes.com/article.asp...

He also tried to cut combat pay and family separation pay for the men and women serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Way to support the troops!

Being in the National Guard does not make one a veteran you dummy. Besides Bush was kicked out of the Texas Air National Guard after he was arrested in Houston for DUI (his 3rd) and possession of cocaine after only serving 4 years of his 6 year commitment. His daddy used his influence as a congressman to put his alcoholic coke-head son in the Texas Air Guard ahead of 180 others that were on a waiting list. Michael Dukakis had nothing to do with Willie Horton being released on weekend furlough from prison. The law in MA allowing for weekend furloughs for prisoners was in place long before Dukakis was governor. You really show your ignorance; you big brave CHICKENHAWK.

The only thing wrong with Democrats, is that THEY JUST DON'T GET IT. Radical Muslim Extremests, in order to meet their God, must eliminate all----------ALL-------non believers. Pretty simple, Huh? Now the Dems, on the other hand want to have a "Chat" with them, and bring them over to their way of thinking...good luck with that! Let's sit down and talk about how, while you are strapping that bomb vest to your child, we can make you feel good about yourself. Let's have hearings on what type of vests we as americans would prefer to die by, and maybe we could even raise taxes in the process. Let us sit on our thumbs while Iran builds a Nuke...and talk to them nicely..they wouldn't use that against us, now would they? MOST OF THE DEMS JUST DON'T GET IT, and at the rate they are going, they never will...
Ah, if you remember, the Republicans controlled the purse strings from 1994 on. I didn’t see any of them complaining about a “weakened military”. They wanted the “peace dividend” as much as democrats.

I’d rather have a President lie about having an affair than one lying about why he started a war.

Going in guns a blazing is how we lost the good will the world felt for us right after 9/11. Maybe if we get enough Arab countries with us, they won’t hate us when we deal with the trouble makers in the region. We had Sadaam on ice, we didn’t deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan, we’re over extended in Iraq and now Iran is making noise. Quite frankly, I wondered what took them so long. Now, we have no resources to deal with Iran. Nicely played GWB.

BAGHDAD (AP)-- Bombers struck an Iraqi army post northeast of Baghdad and civilian targets in the city as violence across Iraq killed at least 72 people Thursday, including the bullet-riddled bodies of 27 men dumped in the capital - apparent victims of sectarian death squads. Still, the top American military spokesman insisted the U.S. command felt "very comfortable" that it is making "steady progress" in restoring order in Baghdad.

I assume you are talking about this?...
"but not of sitting in a classroom when told our country was under attack (before anyone of us knew what was going on) and just sitting there. He just had no clue what to do because no one was there to stand in front of him and tell him."
It is not deserving of reply, but since you insist...
Perhaps you would've preferred he go off half-cocked before he was better informed?
As you said "before ANY OF US knew what was going on"
He was told a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. NO one knew the severity of the situation. After the 2nd plane hit the World Trade Center, Bush left.
The President has people who deal with such issues as the first plane. After the 2nd plane, the secret service should have stepped in and taken the President to Air Force One. They didn't. Instead, he left - without panicing a bunch of school children - a few minutes after he was told a 2nd plane had hit.
I guess you believe Mr. Bill would have jumped up instantly discerning, from his brilliant mind, exactly what was happening and what to do about it.- right???
You show your hypocrisy, bias, and unreasonable prejudice.
There,...does that make you feel better?
Do you realize how rediculous you sound? The President of the US "has people to deal with such issues?" A plane hit one of the tallest buildings in the country! Granted, he didn't jump up and panic a group of children. He froze. Period. He is supposed to be running this country, and as such should have had the common sense (at the very least)
to excuse himself calmly when he was first informed by the whispers in his ear by the secret service. I do not (as you do) make any pressumtions as to what President Clinton would have done in that same situation. That is a moot point, as what does count,
is what the leader of our country DIDN'T do. Just curious...from your view point I wonder how you feel about Bush visiting New Orleans? Froze then too I guess, judging by how long it took him to get there.

Thank you, I couldn't have said it better! Number 4 people either tend to forget about or have no clue about. This was his way of trying to roll everything up into one neat package.....but it back fired on him.
