    The neo-cons were convince that this would be a six day war and that the iraqui citizens would welcome us by waving american flags and only cost a few million.

    My ****?

    Typical liberal, I post nothing but pure facts taken verbatim from historical records, and you have to lable it MY stuff. Must be frustrating to be tripped up by facts so often, because the reaction is in the liberal DNA.

    Good morning, Ocean.

    I wonder how many of them just hated the Dragnet series! Sergeant Joe Friday forever stating "just the facts" had to trigger migraines...

    Hi Polgara.

    To think, all I did was post entries from the IAEA, and somehow they became MY opinions.

    I guess that's part of the Liberal/Progressive thing. If the shoe doesn't fit, blame the shoe, and not yourself.

    No, I'm not kidding. Even Gen. Clapper (quick--Google) thought this.
    I am finally beginning to see the problem and it is a serious one.
    Bush the Younger was a weak president; Cheney the hawk was strong (overly influential). The upper brass (generals, the secretary of defense) have the vocal power. the sergeants, the men in the middle have a weak voice... the people - a zero voice...
    The loser is honesty...the truth...and the people...
    Thus, the outcome was predestined...
    Those in power must improve their attitude.

    I noticed a long time ago that the USA kicks some despots out and puts some despots in.

    We need to stop doing that and stick to taking care of the USA.
    I feel that Bush the Elder did the right think in Iraq I, Hussein thought as himself to be another Hitler.
    To him, Kuwait was Austria or Luxembourg.
    Worse yet, at that time, America and the rest of the world was powerless.

    You lost me with your last sentence. How in the world was America and the rest of the world powerless? I am not sure Bush I or the elder as you called him did the right thing. I do know Saddam thought the U.S. was more or less a semi friend due to all the covert aid and massive intel we had given him previously. Top that off with our Ambassador at the time basically telling Saddam when he asked about Kuwait that it really wasn't our business, I can see where Saddam thought he could get away with it.

    Her slip up reminds me of another slip up that occured in 1950 when another ambassador visiting Japan left South Korea out of the realm of countries that the U.S. though to be in their influence. That slip up led to the Korean war.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

None of the theories or conclusions by the RAND corporation, whether limited war theory going back to Vietnam or 2008 theory of supporting local police or military, are going to make us any more likable with this new enemy we face who essentially wants us to pack our bags. An AQ recruiter has enough tools to last a lifetime to create new enemies. Why are you so afraid of new enemies?
    Ever hear of compromise ?
    The (some of them) wish for use to leave Sudi-Arabia....this we may be doing....we may no longer need their oil..
    We should take an even and fair hand in the middle east (Israel, Palestine,etc).
    That we will never convert to some as repugnant as Islam...there are many sane Muslims who know and respect this... Osama was an extremist.
    The thing, the only thing, that Islam wanted is respect....is that so hard to take ??

    WIN WHAT? Convincing the people of Afghanistan to run their country the way we want them to rather than the way they want to? That was a failure in Vietnam, and it is a failure in Afghanistan.

    How about we just concentrate on solving our own problems before we continue forcing the world to operate under our doctrines.
