our government will never let our gus fight the battle to win. the only way to win is to occupy the country and fly our flag there.

bring the gus home now, no need to let another one die for George Bush's pleasure.

We cannot win in the middle east, since the bible times they have been fighting, we can leave now are we can leave later, they will still be fighting after we are gone, we will never have peace over there, to many want to rule, no room for negotiating and as far as our men fighting, how can they fight fairly a enemy they cannot see, one who will pose as a child or woman or even a family and blow them up before they know its coming...I love our soldiers and that they fight for our country but I am angry for them because they have fought for 5 years and will continue to fight because they are true blue but then when they come home, then Irag will still be a mess....

You know...With everyone's attitudes why bother having cops or firemen???I mean there is ALWAYS going to another fire to put out or another rape, murder, burglery to take care of.
So why bother right?
We should just let people do whatever the "f"they want!

Some of you people make me sick.

Those are our sons, fathers, brothers, uncles, etc. putting their life on the line while you sit at home in your perfect little world on your computer, demoralizing men who face a hell you will never have to see.

Why don't you assholes show some goddamn respect.

If you don't support the fight - fine - keep your mouths shut. They're over there, and you're little post isn't going to change that - so support them and stop being selfish bastards.

I may have, but this cite has an inconvenient limit on the number of characters that can be typed into a poll quesion. That's why I dropped the " ' " in job's.

Actually, I wanted to make I biased poll that doesn't make the decision so clear cut. I made another poll posing the same basic question with different wording-- "Should there be a timetable for leaving Iraq?"-- to see how much of a difference I'd get in results. Right now, this poll's at almost an even 50/50 split, but I bet my other poll would be more for withdrawal if only more people voted...

Please vote on my other poll!

Cleaning up Iraq is like house work (or the Israeli and Palestinian conflict) no matter how much you do it will never be finished.

Robert D,

You obviously never learned a lessen when we left Afghanistan. And you call me ignorant? Just wait till your grandkids have to clean up the mess you want to leave for them right now.

Your phony cry for more equipment is disingenuous at best. You want America to fail PERIOD! In fact you are calling us losers right now. WAY TO GO!
