    Well, I have heard that BS for a while, and always from the same place. Figures. They sing the song, and you guys dance to their tune. OK. Fine with me. But I still think that is crap. Parties. What a joke. NEW BLOOD. NEW BLOOD in the White House, and nothing, and I mean Nothing there that starts with a D or an R. How about fresh thinking that realizes the war in Afghanistan more justified than the lie to force our will on the Iraqi people. Yes, some of them are glad we are there, many more are not. Please spare me anymore of your party lines please. I haven't eaten yet.
    No war is good. Necessary sometimes, but not good. A shame we were forced into a country nowhere near ready to deal with us, and stuffed our way of life down their throats. Granted, a terrible man was forced from power, but the lie is still a lie, and all the rhetoric and spin you can put on this, doe NOT justify the war in Iraq. Afghanistan I can see. Iraq was B.S.

    Parties? Republicans? Democrats? Who's riding the band wagon? Obviously you are riding the band wagon of anti-party. I clearly stated it doesn't matter what party or no party you belong to. I totally agree with the fact that the two parties are just worried about their own agenda and they don't meet their promises, nothing new there as you stated. However it just makes sense to be involved in foreign affairs, ignoring it will result in a bigger problem over here, an example of that would be 9/11. It's all about globalism today.

    Your Iraq = BS speech: You can call it whatever you want. You can say it stems back from W's daddy's problem. The fact of the matter is, we toppled the old Iraqi regime in two weeks. After that two weeks to today we are still fighting a war. Are we fighting a war on Iraq or a war on terror? Obviously it's a war on terror and obviously there are terrorists there.

    If we forced them into a way of life than how come 60% or more went to the polls and voted? If they were really for being under a brutal dictator then why did they bother to exercise their power to vote? Common sense would seem to say that infact they would do the opposite and not vote, but they did. Becareful what you believe, the media is usually one perspective of the whole story.

    Give me a break, Wolf. The people who were responsible for the first WTC bombing(which happened when Clinton had been in office for 3 weeks)...their fannies are in jail. Their ringleader is in jail, here in the US.

    The guys responsible for the 2nd WTC, Pentagon and Pennsylvania crash ...died. Saudi Arabians, NOT Iraqis. Their ringleader is still out and about. And GWB admitted he doesn't think about Osama that much.

    I was and am a big proponent of the war in Afghanistan. I wish we would do the same in Saudi Arabia.

    We are never going to get rid of terrorism, IMO. New potential terrorists are being raised every day, in every country, of every race, colour and religion. Do we start killing children, then?

    Bug, I dance to my own tune. If I didn't, I wouldn't have as many tattoos and guitars as I have. I'm not a sheep, and I have a brain, and for fun i study history and politics. I totally agree with you that the war in Iraq is BS. The Democratic Party is the mainstream party that closest matches my worldview. I will continue to vote Democratic. Let's face it...I can vote the Green Party 'til I get blue in the face, they ain't going to win. But the Democratic Party might. So then, in my local elections, I vote for the more "green" demo or repub candidates....change is incremental, and works its way up the food-chain. I'm in this for the long haul. This fight is not about instant gratification.

    The 2006 mid-terms are going to be mighty interesting.

    You can dance all you want my friend. I dont have time to dance for I am making sure that now when a child is born in Iraq they have a chance of being something. It is very easy to sit over here in your comfy lazy boy stating that many more Iraq's are not happy we are there. You speak of singing songs? Have you been to Iraq? Or are you just dancing to the tune of the anti-US media? There are many, MANY more Iraq's that thank Ali everyday we are there to help them. The only ones that want us gone are the ones that want the country to be the way it was before, with women being slaves, and mass killings of there own people.

    If you cannot honestly look at the big picture and realize that we are so much safer now that Sadam is gone and Iraq as free elections then your own dancing as fatigued your mind.

    If you haven't eaten then maybe it is the lack of food that is making you spew BS, if you are in need I have a spare MRE I could let you have.

    >>> There are many, MANY more Iraq's that thank Ali everyday we are there to help them. <<<<

    Who is this Ali? Anything like Jeebus? There are as many, or more Iraqis who want us out as who want us in. Unless the people I talk to are lying. Are they enjoying their lack of electricity and water? The bombs going off in their marketplaces? This stuff didn't happen before we became involved, you know.

    Iraq was a western style secular state, i.e., women weren't required to be covered. They held good jobs, they were permitted to be educated. IT WASN'T an ISLAMIST STATE.

    However, since this constitution you're so proud of was voted in...Iraq will be an Islamist state, where women will be regarded as 2nd class citizens.

    Iraq was absolutely NO threat to us. Saddam didn't give one darn about the US. We weren't even on his radar.

    As far as mass killings go...how 'bout that North Korea? Or the Sudan? North Korea has nukes that they have very specifically threatened us with.

    We are NOT safer because Sadam has been deposed. Since Sadam has been deposed, Iraq has become a training ground for terrorists. US soldiers and innocent Iraqis see it every day. Congratulations, GWB.

    None so blind as those who WILL NOT see. O71, W9striker, forget it. Understanding is beyond your comprehension. Iraq was not the problem. The leadership here was the problem. There was no terrorism in Iraq, until we invaded them. And the usual repub rhetoric of the anti-American media makes me laugh. Whatever does not agree with your party, is always anti-American. What twisted thinking. I know I am wasting my breath on you guys, as you cannot see the obvious, and your attempts at wit or anything else, falls way short. But, considering where the "party" came from years ago, before they were called republicans, was that only the elite had the know how, and the ability to lead the rest. If you were poor you were nothing. Hasn't changed, Only gotten worse. And you believe every word they regurgitate, and eat it with relish. No independent thought here, just believe what your told, and don't question their authority. OOPS!!!!! Don't forget to go out with your blinders on, boyz! And DON"T listen to anyone who may have an independant thought in their heads! You may learn something you just DON"T want to see!!! AprilH, You make more sense, but your party! Blech! At least you think, whereas the folks attempting to rake me over the coals here, their party hasn't had an original thought for 200 years. Sigh! Repubs just get meaner than hel l when you do not agree with them. And then you become anti-American, at the mercy of the (spin time) "liberal" media, who does not love Amerika (oo! How Nazi!) the way they are told to.

    No offense bugweed but just because we don't agree with your views does not mean we're blind. If you want to go that route we can say that you are the one who's blind. I don't believe me or wolf said that we agree with everything said party does. Infact I already stated that they both are out for their own agenda and most of the time don't do what they say they're going to do. What we are arguing is the fact that you do not believe we should be involved in foreign affairs. Me and wolf believe that it is best for our country to be on the offense then on the defense on our own soil. Look what happens when you just sit there and do nothing ala Clinton. Genocide happens, 9/11 happens. It is so easy for people to travel today that it is important to be involved in global matters, especially ones that can deem threats to our security.

    P.S. Just because you have your own idea doesn't necessarily mean it is better than another idea. You need all the facts/intel and valid reasoning (which you can't provide besides the fact you hate republicans and democrats which means nothing). Where are you getting your intel? From the media? Or do you actually have classified information that makes you believe that your ideas are greater?
