    I read alot of "what's-best-for-the-country-shoobidoo-bappah", but I wonder if it's said with the whole world in consideration? Because it sure as hellfire doesn't sound like it!

    Cheerio!

    I'm all for meddling in the business of other countries and giving out massive quantities of foreign aid, but only after we've taken care of all of the problems here first. Until that time I'm more concerned about the threat from within. The environmental hazards we have to deal with worry me more than a potential car bomber. The fact that wal-mart is apparently taking over the planet scares me. Habitat loss, species extinction, the loss of aerable land all have my interest, but I don'tthink the politicians care too much. By the way wasn't this about electing a female president?

    Wow it's been a while since I caught up on this post.

    I am a big supporter of the UN and many other global organizations. I agree with what they do and the way their systems work. Like most,or should i say all, other superpowers in history the US of A considers itself to be the center overseer of the world. However this is not a job for the US of A. There is nothing that gave the US of A any right to invade the nation of Iraq. Maybe, if the UN had decided to give the US of A the go ahead to invade it may have been a more politically sound war in my opinion. But no, the US of A decided they were better than the little old UN whose opinion only matters when the US wants it to. So they invaded anyway. I believe the UN should recieve more power over issues such as these so hot headed "war-presidents" don't blow away the futures of the next 2 generations of Iraqi's at least. There will be no leaving Iraq if the goals remain the same. You cannot kill terrorism it's like trying to melt an iceburg with a lighter. Sure you melt away little bits of it but more ice forms every day and your work is pointless.

    I have one other problem with the united states and it's all the WOMD that they own and develop. Practice what you preach people or is this some kind of world hipocracy with the US sitting on the thrown.

    P.S. it's Allah not ALi...Show respect
    There was a reason for going into Iraq, I won't list the reasons why again if you want them go look in the previous pages.

    You want to give the global community control over the U.S., especially over decisions which could effect our countries security? Think about what you are suggesting, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    The United Nations was a good idea at best but lets be honest here. The U.N. never acts, because the European nations aren't willing to contribute. One of the cornerstones of the creation of the U.N. was to prevent a genocide such as the holocaust from ever happening again. The U.N. knew about Rwanda, knew it was a genocide going on over there and did nothing. They did the same thing when they inspected Saddam, nothing.

    Your terrorists = iceberg analogy is not good. No one said we are trying to 100% eliminate and destroy all terrorism. Sure we can't kill them all but we can sure mess up their organization, their resources, their training camps and even intercept terrorist missions before they happen.

    Can people such as yourself please explain how leaving the terrorists alone will make the U.S. and the world a safer place? None of you have laid down a valid counter-argument or a valid counter-plan to get the job done. Instead I have listed why what we are doing is good, and I have listed with examples why leaving the terrorists alone doesn't work. So where is your reasoning?

    Before rambling on a list of reasons why throwing away our weapons would be dumb, could you please ramble a list of why throwing away our defense systems would be a great idea? Second question are you Canadian?
