    On Kurds in Iraq. Not Kuwait in the South. Not Iran.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Are jews born and raised in America, not Americans? Really, this is stupid. I can't believe I've had to spend any time on this silliness.Is this some sort of debate tactic where the oponent is stupided into submission?

    You could say that about terrorists in every country. We need to get a grip on our irrational fear, it is bankrupting this country can causing tens of thousands of needless deaths.

    Problem is Obama refuses to listen to the generals. Obama has no expierence and does not understand the harm he is causing
    Please quote where I ever said that I agree with Obama continuing the Bush wars? There are many here though that dishonestly blame Obama for our debt yet support him in continuing to waste our money and servicemen's lives in 2 unfunded ME wars. You know anyone like that?

    A significant portion of the Afghans. You think we should kill them all before we leave?

    Well, I don't think the Taliban will be hiding Bin Laden again. It is time to bring our troops home.

    Your claim was that a majority of Democrats voted for the war. They did not.

    Patrolling big oil's future property for them, and they do appreciate, thank you very much!

    How do you see they were a threat to the US or their neighbors? What do you know that the CIA was never able to determine?

    My son was in that effort. He said we set Iraq back a century in their military capability. Anyone with any knowledge of Post Persian war Iraq was aware, they were not a threat to us or their neighbors.

    One of the most powerful countries on the planet invading one of the weakest at the time. Really makes you wonder what our real motive was, doesn't it?
