Re: Let's impeach the president.

[quote=Crazyhorse1;322239]We are the dim fate the people of Iraq have been are subjected to. False, we are protecting them from each other.
We've also established what were built to be permanent bases in Iraq and plotted to use its oil to pay for the war. True

and stake a permanent claim on Iraqi resourses. False (your opinion)
We attacked Iraq to get a foothold in the middle east True
.
Try dealing with the bitter and increasingly obvious truth (as the evidence stacks up) that our leaders have never cared zip about Iraqis. False, our leaders over there care.

Try to be as smart as a typical Iraqi ten year old Ouch, not fair!
and the rest of the civilized world, which now regards us as world threat No. 1. So why does UN always use more US troops than anyone elses for peace keeping missions?

The current administration believes neither in Iraqi freedom or American freedom. Until you understand that, you are living in a state of delusion and have no real chance of saying anything meaningful about our current situation. Yor opinion once again, try pointing out a little bit of fact to support it next time.quote]

As long as the extremists keep yelling about Bush lying they won't get traction in this country. The American people don't care whether he lied or not. They care about how it is going and what the plan is from here. That is where the politcal traction lays and no one seems to want to take a ride on it.
Actually, Obama never agreed

At no time in history has one group of people agreed with sending troops overseas. There are always those that disagree with it. WW1, WW2 had a lot of people that didn't agree with it, but does that mean that we should have backed out? Absolutely not.
I'm sorry, but the Iraq mission is not done. I would never teach my kids to quit something they started because it got tough, and I appreciate the fact that we (USA) won't finish until the job is done, and we were flat out told that! There is absolutely no point in backing out now when the likely scenario would be that Iraq would fall back into their old ways and that makes all the lives lost all for not. So unless you can guarentee Iraq has changed for the best and won't go back to where they were, then we're not done.

Re: Let's impeach the president.

Angry, I am very impressed with your posts...I wanted to reply to all of them, but I'd be writing forever, and take up all sorts of posts. You've done a great job.

Why do we care if Iraq gets better or not? 87% of HS kids can't put it on the globe. Damn 17% can't place the US on the globe. The job will never be done man!!!!!!!! The Iraqis will fight on and on and on to get us out of there. Everywhere we intervene ends up worse off than before we messed with it. It is pretty sad when average Iraqis will look back to the Saddam regime as the "good old days". The war was based on a lie from day one, so why can't we just leave? We left Vietnam and it was a total disaster. Did the world end when the Commies took Saigon in '75? Iraq didn't have anything to do with 9/11 and we were good buddies with Hussein til April Glaspie in the summer of 1990 told Saddam we wouldn't do anything if he used force against the Kuwaitis, who were slant drilling into Iraqi oil fields
Every war this nation has fought since 1898 was based on one big damn lie that got us worked up in a war frenzy.

Spanish Amer War 1898: USS Maine supposedly sabotaged by Spain, but investigation blames design flaw that put gunpowed close to the boiler room. No sabotage, but the incident was enough to start a war before the investigation was even started.

World War I: A dumbass war fought by a bunch of intermarried arisocratic dynasties who were having a big family spat using millions of the little people as pawns. Christian Europe was essentially destroyed because of this stupidity and replaced with facism and communism, setting up the next war as we totally humiliated Germany, who in reality was only just as culpable as starting the whole thing as England, France, or Russia. This made damn sure Hitler would be an attractive candidate when Weimar was failing during the Depression. The lie in this was Wilson making it out to be some damn crusade for democracy, human rights, etc. Yeah it turned out pretty good didn't it.

World War II: Horrible sequel to the first dumbass world war, except that contrary to what he publicly said FDR always wanted it. Read Day of Deceit and New Dealer's War. FDR did everything in his power, even violating Neutrality Laws, to corner both Japan and Germany in a major war. THis is the only war of the lot that can have any degree of justification because of the belligerence of the axis, but our govt's actions didn't help matters either.

Korea: Atchinson excludes S Korea from the US Pacific Defense perimeter, giving the Reds the green light to invade. 3 years later th war ends exactly where it began at the 38th parallel, but with almost 40,000 American troops dead, just because some guy either deliberately, or accidently left S Korea off the table as an American interest.

Vietnam: Gulf of Tonkin incident never happend, but an inexperinced sonar guy thinks his ship is being attacked. Even though the US commander on the spot radioed that it was a false alarm, LBJ used it to get us involved in Vietnam. Yet another lie or misleading statement/non statement, this time over 50,00 US troops lose their lives. Vietnam fell eventually and did not affect US National Security

Gulf War I: Read above about April Glaspie. Saddam was our bulwark against the Islamic Revolution. He shot the crazy bastards, including AL Qaeda. Taking him out just let the crazies loose and now we are in one horrible bind.

Gulf War II: Bush lied about everything. Iraq could be swallowed up into hell and it would effect the US very little, but a ton of no bid private contractors are making a frigging killing off of this, not to mention Blackwater and their mercenary army.


Moral of the story? Maybe we should just worry about our own damn nation for a change and quit intervening in these 3rd world hellholes that do not have any impact either way on US National Security. We have too many problems here at home that need to be addressed. Also if you know you made a mistake are you going to continue making that mistake and letting things get worse? If we stay in Iraq things are only going to get worse. The Iraqis are going to fight forever to get us out of there. It is there country, their homes, their lives. Who are we to interfere in that? IF the Sunnis and Shiites start a civil war, that is their matter isn't it? Does it affect US National Security if Sunnis and Shiites are killing each other 10,000 miles from the US?

how long are we supposed to wait until Iraq is ready to govern their own country? 5 years? 10 years? some people want freedom, some do not. its that simple. are the Iraqi people willing to work for it? Saddam Hussein was a bad man. is it the United States job to rid the world of bad people? we have a bad one in Cuba, thats been ruling for 50 years. why not take him out? what about north Korea? Iran? this disaster that President Bush has pulled the U.S. into is nothing more, nothing less. all it did was rile up the middle east to the point that just about everyone over there, with the exception of Israel, has nothing but pure hatred for us. his plan was bad, and the execution of that plan has been worse. its time to pull out, and work on homeland security. i am not a quitter, but i realize when i am wrong, and do what it takes to correct my mistakes. this is the republicans biggest flaw. not willing to concede when they are wrong. and then willing to try and fix their mistakes. and i am neither dumb, nor lazy

Re: Let's impeach the president.

Did anyone catch the interesting debate between the Dem. Prez. candidates at Howard? I found it interesting that they all condemned the Bush administration for unilaterally intervening in Iraq and staying there despite the civil war between rival factions. Then, in response to the next question about Sudan, they all said we should intervene in Darfur even if we have to do it unilaterally (as China would veto any UN resolution authorizing force) in a conflict marred by civil strife between rival factions.

Yeah, I thought that was pretty interesting. I'm trying to find a full transcript of the debate

EVERYONE wants freedom. That is not the wisest of comments. Although, I am assuming the ones that you say "do not", just don't want it from the USA.

See, this is why your arguments have very little validity, you put too much opinion in, and not enough fact. Practically the entire world agreed to this war, and practically everyone in congress including your buddies, the Dems. If Bush did this alone, I don't understand why everyone (including you) has referred to him as stupid. Anyone that can do that is the most intelligent person on the planet. You can't have it both ways.

That is not the problem here. The problem is not that they realize they are wrong. The problem is more of, they (and by they, I mean you dems too) bit off more than they can chew. You were warned it would take a while to fix this, and it is. Why back out now? There has been a plethera of progress, but you choose to ignore that. That's a shame.
Remember Clinton Portis' first TD with us against Tampa? What if he decided to fall down around Tampa's 30 yard line and be tackled? That is what you are suggesting the country do. Finish what you started.
