Sorry to rain on your parade, but the majority of the population does NOT support the war, and the numbers of those who do are going down daily.Originally Posted by [b
I have been in full gloat mode for a while now, *I'm sitting back, eating popcorn, and watching the republican party self destruct...now that the press and the American people have finally started to wake up to the corruption and lies of this administration.
I personally don't know any American citizens who hope we lose this war, and I can cite you plenty of examples that prove me right about the Shrub that have nothing to do with the war. *
I DO support the troops. *And I respect them enough to not send them to war for a personal vendetta, or help for my oil industry friends, or a neo-con vision of an "american empire."Originally Posted by [b
Wars should always be the last resort....unless we are attacked first. *Which we were. *By citizens of SAUDIA ARABIA, who trained with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. I had no problem with us going in and shooting up Afghanistan. YAY! But Iraq had NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. *And I'm still wondering why we didn't go in and shoot up Saudi Arabia, too. They deserve it. Check out what their madrassas teach. Government sanctioned.
Bush and his cronies lied to get us into this war, period. Almost 2,000 of our soldiers have died, and tens of thousands of innocent Iraquis have died based on a pack of lies put forth by neo-cons and this administration. *Which technically makes them war criminals, i guess. Bush/Cheney, et. al, are due a little impeachment hearing, I think. This isn't about such fluff as sex with an intern.
Repeat after me: Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11. Bush and Cheney both have said so. *15 of the 19 hijackers were from our good friends SAUDI ARABIA. We were not greeted by the Iraqi people with flowers and thanks. Bin Laden detested Hussein because Hussein maintained a secular state. Bin Laden wants Islamist states everywhere in the mid-east.
We didn't do a darn thing about the chaos that ensued in Iraq after we invaded. *Rumsfeld brushed off the rioting and lawlessness. There was considerable planning for the aftermath of fall of Hussein, but the administration chose to ignore it. *Hence, the insurgency, the IEDS, and the fact that ordinary Iraqis still don't have electricity and/or water.
Our biggest threat this whole time was not Islam, but Islamism and Islamists, and the administration was completely blind. *Until 9/11, then they got the drift, kind of. *But still went after the wrong country. *Wonder why? *
I don't care what colour or sex the next batch of nominees are...I'm just hoping for IQ's that are higher than that of a smart dog.
