    Gee... wasn't that one of Bush's big concerns, if we leave too soon, the country will get hammered by violence... oh look, PBO rushed out and ... gasp!
    To bad Bush did not realize that if we had not gone there in the first place this would not be happening at all.

    That's like crying over spilt milk.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Spilt milk? More like they burned the entire dairy to the ground. My last job we had a couple of Yemeni Arabs working with us. Talking with them Saddam is now a hero and a martyr in the Middle East. Apparently according to them when Saddam was hung a false report was made that he was frightened. But a few days later a video tape was released showing that Saddam faced death bravely.

    This makes Saddam a hero. Not a coward. Because to them it is not how a man lives but rather how he dies that is important to Muslims. Thus all his sins are forgiven and he is now a martyr for the cause.
    Good job Mr Bush.

    20,000 Jihadists. How many Jihadists were in Iraq before the invasion? How active was Al Queda?

    If they were looking to really deal a fatal blow to terrorism and end the trouble in the Middle East why didnít they take on Iran? That is where the nuclear weapons programs are, That is the Nation that is funding terrorists and that is the nation that wants to truly dominate the middle east and spread Jihad world wide right into our own back yards.

    I enjoy all this "stop being the police for the world" bumper sticker arguments, but then go on to act completely oblivious to the 800 or so installations in at least 38 other countries. It's like "damn Neo-Conservatives sending us to Iraq" then to go on about the day giving silent confirmation, whether out of ignorance or plain stupidity, to the other deployments. Sure, we don't hear about the 1200 or so troops in Serbia, nor the 9600 or so in Italy. Yet they're a shrill indicator of our 'policing,' yet they are given a free pass? Caimpaigns that were started by everyone but so called Neo-Conservatives, are given a free pass? Sure, can't expect much more from some people.

    Really, it's a tad disappointing and shows that people willing to jump on the "isolationist" bandwagon are not doing if for any more reason then to further their own narrow points. If you're against policing the world, I'd suggest you look past the Democrat Party's talking points, so I can look at you and see more than a sheople.

    Many more factors involved than just neo conservatives. This was a Bush clique decision and they used devious methods to bring it about. Saddam was an evil man that no one can doubt. But he was not a threat to the US. The so called war on terror was used as an excuse to invade to settle personal issues rather than national.

    Although the Saddam regime was brutal it was stable. Now the Iraqi people are being brutalized and the country is not stable. Not to mention that most of the support for the war against terrorism has evaporated because of Iraq.

    Holy crap Batman, do some just not know who the heck signed the Status of Force agreement to withdraw forces from Iraq?

    Good lord, do some even realize this is no longer our say even if we stay or leave? So it is not a matter of withdrawing early or not, it is a matter of what a sovereign nation desires, and their desire is for our forces to leave.

    Get real...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- In a major victory for the White House, the Senate early Friday voted 77-23 to authorize President Bush to attack Iraq if Saddam Hussein refuses to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions.

    Hours earlier, the House approved an identical resolution, 296-133.
    CNN.com - Senate approves Iraq war resolution - Oct. 11, 2002

    Congress saw the same intelligence reports as Bush did, and voted to go.

    This is just one of the lies libs use to excuse themselves from the fact that they were making political hay over the war and at the same time aiding and abetting the enemy.

    Libs are disgusting.

    Do you have any evidence that Iraq was needed to avoid those mass graves, or are you just using over the top rhetoric?

    Saddam's regime had killed over 300 thousand people prior to the '03 invasion. There was no evidence that he was going to slack off. His two boys sure as hell weren't interested in curtailing their savagery.
