    It certainly allows the President to use all force as he feels is necessary. Why do you believe it was passed and to what end?

    And over 150,000 Iraqis died also. What exactly was their crime again?
    That why Bush can't travel to many countries. They want to try him for "bloody murder".
    Who was mainly responsible for murdering the Iraqi people?

    Do you really believe it was the Americans and their allies?

    Do you think that's why drone strikes occur? What in the ****?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Allowing terrorist groups to attack the US without consequence would certainly not work either, and it doesn't make sense that only one side should follow the Geneva Conventions.

    It might be better to declare war on any country which harbors terrorists, as George Bush intimated, if that is the choice of the people. But of course they would also have to follow through with any threats and actually attack any of those backward terrorist countries.

    This guy has the right attitude on how to respond to Iran, for example.

    No said no consequences for those who attacked us. I said you can't combat them effectively invading nations.

    Which s a mistake no matter who s president. War should be declared if you're going to war.

    No of course not. All we had were pea shooters and spit balls. Those 4000 Americans died from hangnails.

    I saw what you said.

    How would you intend to defend the US, for example, against terrorist attacks.

    Did you listen to the speech and the response regarding terrorism?

    If you don't know who killed most of the Iraqis, and why the war took so long, just say so.

    Go after actual terrorist. You might review what happen with Ireland and the British after the British learned their overt force lesson.
