    Wars are hell and will always be hell. Our enemy uses human shields and do not have the same respect for life as most here. Russia and China fight wars to win, we fight wars to be politically correct and when our country does that we lose.

    Well apparently somebody's concerned about the innocent, so the pilots may pout all they wish. I'd like to see more caution like this when it comes to the innocent civilians caught in this wretched mess made possible in part by BushCo.

    When I rely on a President to uphold the Constitution and provide for the Common Defense, my money and my life would be on Bush vs. Obama any day. I slept well with Bush in the WH, not so much these days

    Well with the 2006 NIE telling me that Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq caused an increase in global terrorism, and made America less safe, I slept poorly.

    Sorry to hear that, the military disagreed with you and supported Bush completely. Must have missed when that terrorism hit this country? How are you sleeping these days? Wonder how the people in Ramadi are sleeping these days thanks to Obama

    You keep pretending that you read the NIE when you obviously haven't. If they had said that they'd be wrong. FLASHBACK

    Yeah, we've been over this at length.

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 — A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks.

    The classified National Intelligence Estimate attributes a more direct role to the Iraq war in fueling radicalism than that presented either in recent White House documents or in a report released Wednesday by the House Intelligence Committee, according to several officials in Washington involved in preparing the assessment or who have read the final document.

    The intelligence estimate, completed in April, is the first formal appraisal of global terrorism by United States intelligence agencies since the Iraq war began, and represents a consensus view of the 16 disparate spy services inside government. Titled “Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the United States,’’ it asserts that Islamic radicalism, rather than being in retreat, has metastasized and spread across the globe.

    In a Thursday panel at Cato on conservatism and war, U.S. Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) and John Duncan (R-Tenn.) revealed that the vast majority of GOP members of Congress now think it was wrong for the U.S. to invade Iraq in 2003.

    The discussion was moderated by Grover Norquist, who asked the congressmen how many of their colleagues now think the war was a mistake.
