and if it's such a frickin high and almighty cause that more bodies are needed to fill body bags, why aren't the recruitment centers for the army and marines being beaten down with diehard repuglicans willing to fight and die for the oil war that the bushicons are so in love with?
The very reasons you mention above.
Look.......... I never said I was for the war, but the fact is that we are there, and Iraq is in turmoil because of our invasion. It's he said, she said as far as wmd's or any other reason why we went there in the first place. I personally think that there WAS wmd's there before we invaded, but because we dicked around with the UN on this issue, Hussein, knowing that an invasion was inevitable had plenty of time to remove all evidence. He's used biological weapons against his own people for pete's sake! This is a known fact!
Now Hussein is dead........ May he rot in hell!
Iraq, like Iran, Jordan, southern Russia, Saudi Arabia, and a number of other countries in the middle East are swarming with insurgents that is not unlike the viet cong. While the vietcong was in support of North Vietnam, these animals have no allegiance. Nevertheless this is what our Toops are dealing with.
That being said, if we pull out now, Iran will be licking their chops with a weak country that they have hated for centuries, and the opportunity to take more lives than we already have. I would not be surprised to see a holy war in this situation.
I guess it's protocall to bitch about Bush, but solutions need to arise before a major pullout happens. I am sure that plans have been presented, but none of them were right for the situation. Remember....... One Man does not come up with all of these ideas, and it takes more than one man to approve decisions such as war or a pullout.
It's also easy to sit behind your computer screen and play armchair quarterback and throw insults to those who do not trash Bush. I am not a clichish kind of guy. I call em as I see em. I am middle of the road, and I view as many idiots on the right as I do the left.
Waaaaaaaaaaah, I gotta boo boo, ok then! Let's figure out how to mend it!
