    Bush had the world's favor upon him after 9/11, it was when he tied 9/11 to Iraq and began a war which costed several Americans their lives did favor turn against him and he was blamed for costing several Americans their lives.

    Should we befriend the nations that hate us? I agree in making friends with them if we can, but if they allow people to live in their country that fly planes into our buildings and try to kill Americans, and they do NOTHING about it.... why should we make allies?
    Why should we make enemies either? You think those people have no reason to go after our way of life? Our way of life threatens their way of life. How do you expect someone to be fine when your country declares war on another in order to build a pipeline through the middle of it? You wouldnt want it to happen to America, why is it okay for you to do it to them? Oh, and if you havent figured it out yet, Iraq had nothing to do with 911.

    Technically, most of the world's favor (i.e. Europe's) changed after they were bombed.

    He has done one thing that he has the power to do, that is to bring common sense back to the oval office. Also, he has brought back our president's ability to make his own decisions, speak English, and possess intelligence.

    Well there's a shot from the far left. From what I can recall and dig up, there was no claim that Saddam was directly involved with 9/11, but that he was involved in state sponsored terrorism. Are you aware that the two main UN countries in opposition to the invasion, France and Russia, had sovereign oil fields in Iraq? Oil was pumped out of Iraqi soil and went directly to those two countries without any toll, tariff, or purchase. What do you think their real motive for opposition was? Saddam defied over 10 years of sanctions and other diplomatic efforts and he was propped up by UN member countries that were benefiting from his regime. 2 years previous to Bush getting elected, Regime change in Iraq became an official goal of US foreign policy. In that same year, the Clinton administration launched Operation Desert Fox, calling in air and missile strikes on pointless targets and random chunks of empty desert, and yet, the Iraq issue is President Bush's fault?

    Afghanistan attacked us after huge monetary and weapon support in their fight with the Soviet Union. If middle eastern fascist regimes are going to attack us when we do help them (immensely) how are we going to ensure our safety through diplomatic methods?? Diplomacy with fascist governments just doesn't work.

    While I agree that the timing of the second invasion of Iraq was poor, the necessity is without question. At some point people are really going to have expect our President to deal with his own issues without making excuses about the previous administration. His Presidency is half over, man up.

    Anybody that was the POTUS right now would be taking a beating. Look at what this man walked into and the things he has had to deal with while in Office so far. I say he is doing a Stand Up Job!!

    Stand Up Job By a Stand Up Man! He is doing Good

    He is really responding to things as opposed to making a nation better. His job is to help not make our nation hit rock bottom. Carter had to deal with it, FDR had to. See the theme?
