    I knew better that it had nothing to do with WMD, oil or Al Qaeda but Sadam was training and supporting other terrorist.

    Iraq sheltered the Abu Nidal Organization, an international terrorist organization that has carried out terrorist attacks in twenty countries, killing or injuring almost 900 people. Targets have included the United States and several other Western nations. Each of these groups have offices in Baghdad and receive training, logistical assistance, and financial aid from the government of Iraq.

    In April 2002, Saddam Hussein increased from $10,000 to $25,000 the money offered to families of Palestinian suicide/homicide bombers.

Grunts grunted back then.

    Some of us wonder how todays body armor would work out in Vietnam when it's 120 degrees with 80% humidity ?

    The problem is, nobody has been able to figure out how to defeat IED's.

    And what the hell was it doing in Iraq at a force level well beyond 100K? More to the point, how long did it take Donny Dumbsfeld to figure out BEFORE the invasion that we would need a lot more body and vehicle armour? Too long for some now in the ground or severely wounded, eh? The Chicken Hawks wanted into Iraq with their big invasion force for EIGHTEEN MONTHS before the war started. Great planning.

    You claim Obama doesn't care about the troops. I say that's completely absurd nonsense. And, no, I don't care how many people in the military agree with you I'd say you have to be an outright idiot to think that he doesn't care.

    And yeah, battlefield strategy and tactics are typically not presidential decisions, but how about a decision to invade a country that was no threat to us? I always say I don't really blame Bush it was that NAZI pile of crap, Dicky Chaingang that manipulated him into it. Chaingang and Dumbsfeld should be despised by the US military.

    Nice rant-when you call Cheney a Nazi you pretty well have Godwinned yourself out of having any further posts on this subject taken seriously.

    It appears that Bush Derangement Syndrome is an issue your posts are infected with

    Overall a slight yes. He wasn't too good on spending but he was a serious leader that made good decisions with respect to foreign policy.

    No way. Bush is the worst. If there is a president worse than him, he hasn't been born yet.

    LOL

    why do you claim to be right leaning on the above poll?

    worst presidents in terms of incompetency

    Harding, Grant, Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Carter (Obama hasn't finished yet)

    worst presidents in terms of damage to the USA

    FDR, Wilson, LBJ, Hoover, Truman



    Most overrated Presidents-20th Century

    Kennedy-his assassination elevated him from average to "great" in most minds

    Most underrated president -20th Century

    Gerald Ford
