    Have you read the Joint Resolution? Are you also aware that it had vast bi-partisan support on BOTH sides of the aisle?

    Are you also aware that the interrogator who spent a lot of time with Saddam indicated that Saddam deliberately misled the world about his WMDs because he was more fearful of Iran than he was of the UN and America and felt that just the threat of having WMDs kept Iran at bay?

    Of course you are not aware of the FACTS because if you were you wouldn't run around the forum trolling with such foolish comments.

    Carry on.

    Not as many soldiers dead and this incorrect idea of victory in a country where failure is the only outcome?

    Ironic, given that His words echo that of GWB:

    Transcript of President Bush's Speech

    Bush stresses change in Iraq policy speech - CNN.com

    Good to see The Obama comes up with His own stuff.
    No response?

    Obviously the skills of leading elude you. I suggest you pick up a book regarding leadership and read a little; most leaders are indeed also cheer leaders.

    Every company President can tell you this much.

    Thank you for that.
    You're the one that wants a Cheerleader...which is what Obama is saying that he isn't going to be. Kudos.

    There's only one place where failure is the only outcome, and it's called Windows.

    The situation in Afghanistan doesn't need to end with a failure.

    Why are you always so lazy to educate yourself. There is plenty of information out there.

    Here's how its done. Go to a search engine such as "Google"

    Type in "Rumsfield Cheney Iraq agenda" and there are hundreds of articles that you can read that will catch you up with the rest of us.

    I'll even give you a head start. Go to Rumsfield's war. It is a very indepth historical account of efforts by Rumsfield and Cheney to convince the last 4 Presidents to invade Iraq. frontline: rumsfeld's war | PBS
