    Folks, we have been at war with islam for 1300 years, don't forget that. yes, most of them can live with us, but they don't like us, a good portion of them would love to see us and isreal destroyed.

    i always ask people "what was your plan b?" When they go huh? I ask them, "what was you rgame plan for when saddam died?" there is no way his two idiot sons could have held that country together. the vacuum would have been huge, you would have had kurds trying to break away, Iran would have been in there in a heatbeat, turkey and syria would have both gotten invovled somewhere, al queada would have been involved on a huge scale, there would have been few bases for us to operate out of, kuwait and qatar are the only two. it would have been impossible for us to commit ground troops, in fact, i would say that more than likely we would still be waiting for the UN to do something....

    no, george bush didn't handle everything right, but he didn't handle everything wrong either.
    I couldn't agree more. Remember when the USS Cole was attacked? Blackhawk down? Clinton said they would be hunted down and punished. He did nothing except go after Bill Gates. :roll:

    This has to be the best statement I have heard about the war since it started. This is 100% true.

    On what do you base that? I'm not sure it's true at all. While we have engaged al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, they have been able to mount relatively sophisticated operations in Britain, Spain, and elsewhere. So it's not like we are tying up 100% of their manpower. Seems to me they could hit America again if they wanted.

    Most of the people we are now fighting in Iraq, and to a lesser extent Afghanistan, lack the resources of an organization like al-Qaeda. They couldn't conduct an operation against the mainland US.

    One of the first rules of warfare is to go where your enemy is not. It makes little sense for our enemies to fight our army in Iraq if they could attack unarmed civilians in America - assuming their goal is to kill Americans. Perhaps they fight us in Iraq because they lack the money and/or sophistication to launch an operation in America. If this is the case, then the whole idea of them "following" us to America is absurd.

    The Iraqi insurgents aren't necessarily the same people who hit us on 9/11.

    Ok, I'm young and naive and most likely don't have all my facts straight, but I'll chime in anyways.

    First off, I fully support the troops no matter what. As far as the war goes, I used to support it, but now I don't anymore. I don't even know what we're fighting for anymore. It started out as we were looking for terrorist and WMDs. Then we got Saddam out of power and created somewhat of an Iraqi Government. So now what are we doing there? We are involved in a civil war there that's been going on for hundreds of years and we expect it's going to stop all at once? I say bring our boys back home.

    I say, get the damned reporters out of the way, and untie the military's hands. We fight wars to win, not half way try and then give up. I have friends and inlaws either there or going soon, I wish they didnt have too, but we are at war with islamic extremists, wherever they hide.

    on a lighter note:
