    What's the point here?

    The debate seems to have died down when conservatives started to claim that the war was won. Most folks of any political stripe are pretty comfortable with honoring our commitment to the Iraqi government to leave at this point.

    Until there is some noticeable sense of unease around that timeline (originally created by the Bush admin), I don't see much of a debate for most people.

    It's a good thing we pulled our forces out of the towns when we did. The sooner we can evac the theater, the sooner the violence can accelerate. Leaving is such a great idea at this point. Hell, the sooner we leave, the quicker things will fall completely to pieces and the sooner we can go back and start all over again.

    The point is that we've used the healthcare "debate" to forget things like the wars which are going on, the secret prisons which still exist, the use of torture which still goes on, the spying and warrantless taps which still goes on. Trying to forget all this crap is still going on so we don't debate it. Forget all the nasty stuff the government is doing, the power it's taking, the lives its costing, the money its wasting. Just get distracted by the healthcare debate which is going nowhere but in circles and don't look over to the Middle East where we're still there, still fighting, still haven't gotten to a conclusion. Just forget about it, move along...nothing to see here.

    It's more of a point, in short, that say bringing up Timothy McVeigh.

    Maybe we should learn the lesson to not create such a mess in the first place, especially in places which were never a concern to us.

    Well, that's all fine and good and irrelevant. The fact is, the mess has been created. Making it worse, isn't the answer.

    I do not believe the Bush haters blaming a bombing seven months into the messiah's reign on Bush.

    When Bush left office, the surge proposed by Gen Patraeus (Betrayus) and implemented by the Bush administration and adamantly opposed by the democrats had dropped violence in Iraq to a level making it probably the safest place in the middle east. Seven months of a democrat dominated administration and things are getting violent again. How in the he## is that Bush's fault.

    Liberals have no prospective left and are totally ignoring what is going on around them in favor of a continued spewing of hatred for a man who was simply doing his job defending America.

    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
