    Why sure, further bankrupt the country and drive gas prices to $15 a gal - Good plan you've got there!!!
    Bomb the leadership and them just go in and take it. America could have taken control of all the Iraqi oil, as they should have, and oil prices would have come down.

    Is this $15 a gallon scenario of your related to your ANWAR predictions of 21 cents?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure OBama and the Pentagon want a sacrifice for the lynch mobs gathering as we speak.


    but it would certainly bring about a quick end to our war in Afghanistan!
    And a major bloodbath will follow our withdrawal. This would happen regardless of any recent incidents, it's just the way it works over there.

    We would be kicked out Afghanistan just like were were kicked out of Iraq!
    We still have forces in Iraq; they may be private contractors, I'm not sure. Again, it's also a bloodbath that will run for a long time. Those cultures revel in them.

    The hell? Since when was the right to a fair trial a modern, or even an obama concept? Obama has gone out of his way to sign the NDAA, which removed this right from American citizens.

    Exactly...I was addressing a poster that all but had the troop in question, strung up, and awaiting the jeers of the likes of him....

    Lol, I always come in the conversation late, I thought he had said "innocent until proven guilty" not the other way around. Sorry about that.

    It would have been a truer picture of our motivation but would have been too obvious for the rest of the world to abide.

    No it is the scenario of your wish to bomb the hell out of the middle east.

    No, I don't think Obama is stupid enough to set Afghanistan on fire.

    That happens every time we insert ourselves in a civil war. Look at Vietnam and Iraq.

    There are no US troops in Iraq as McCain had planned. Civil wars always result in bloodshed. Have you forgotten how bloody our own civil war was?
