    I realize we still have 35,000 troops there backed up by the most powerful military on the planet propping up our new corrupt regime there and protecting the hard fought access to Iraqi oil that had been denied to us for the last 36 years prior to our invasion.

    Surely you don't speak for all Texans....most of them aren't that easily stampeded...
    No cousin Bill; I was talking about NY City, DC and Chicago.

    I stay vigilant but I canít find an arrogant muslim any where I go and I look for them. The ones I see around Austin donít seem to want to make eye contact with me and Iím not that mean looking. Iím not bowing and apologizing for being a great republic either and I am looking for muslims that might be a little radical.

    As many Texans that work in Saudi and around the Middle East I expect that Texans are more feared than our illegitimate president is.

    My wife taught a few muslims....one poor boy was as dumb as they come, and his daddy had trouble accepting it. It had to be the teacher's fault, because most of them were women. In 8th grade, they have more than a few teachers, and only one was male. That was the only teacher that the dad would talk to, the women, including a female principal, just sat there and watched this clown in case he got too hinky. My son used to work for a female jewish principal, and when a muslim dad came in trying to tell her she knows nothing about the middle east, she got right back in his face. She got loud and proud, and a bit potty mouth with him. you could hear it outside her office and down the hall. Another muslim family wasn't smart enough to tell their kids to play it cool at school right after 9/11. A dad had to be called in and have it explained to him that his kids were in for a beating if they didn't stop repeating what dad and an uncle were saying. The other kids didn't much care for muslims saying the people in the Towers "deserved to die".

    We don’t have any muslims, - that I know of - in our little town south of Austin. But we do have some liberal teachers. On 9/11 I called the school to make sure my daughter was watching history being made but i was told that it was up to the individual teachers.

    It turned out that my daughter was watching TV but I didn’t know if she was or not so I went to get her. When my daughter realized what was happening she put her books in her back pack and the teacher asked her where she saw going so she told the teacher that I would be there to get her in a few minutes but the teacher didn’t believe her until I got there.

    I can’t remember sitting down that whole day. We all just stood and watched the towers burn until they fell. It was later that we learned that Bush had been flying the second plane so that he could get into the building to light the fuse to bring the towers down.

    I hope you said it in jest, or even cynically. I'd hate to think you were really so cold and so cruel.

    Are we "bogged down" in iraq or not? At what troop level are we no longer "bogged down"? Let me guess: whichever number suits your argument.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I don't remember Germany, Japan, or Panama demanding that all of our troops leave their country either. We don't take a hint very well, do we?

    We are still forced to prop up the government there with our military as we have been for the last 8 years at great expense to the taxpayers, present and future, so hell yes we are still bogged down there.

    It is possible to have pity for a fool.

    Whatever the hell people may think about the wars, al Qaeda is a legitimate threat to the US and other western countries. I don't see why some people are trying to portray this information as NBD.
