    You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,"

    (It has not been confirmed that Joe was shaking his head ... but there was a rattling sound heard)

    CONservatives ALWAYS for bigger, more intrusive Gov't measures, even in other nations !

    see #161 ... that's more than optimism ... that's declaring and taking credit.

    Let's take a look at that "success".

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Greeting, Pero.
    Because our military is entirely volunteer, I never got into the refrain about wasting American lives in Iraq. They all volunteered. But I certainly hope we don't waste any more resources. No matter what we do there IS going to be an islamic union in the middle east that is as strong or stronger than the European Union. I hope our resources are put toward strategies for dealing with it. We still have interests in the middle east and as long as we do, we need to be looking out for them.

    Bush signed SOFA, which "lays out a framework for the withdrawal of American forces in Iraq."
