“Hillary stated that nearly all the troops would be out within a year. She then stated that President Bush is negotiating a permanent base in Iraq, without going to congress. She is against permanent bases. Perhaps she wants to remove the troops from South Korea.”
Anyone who doesnt think this was part of the plan from the beggining has no business running for office.
I dont think its about hearts and minds at all. It certainly wasnt for cheaper oil.
I think, and it seems rather obvious that we went there to set up shop and keep an eye on these brats
As long as only 4 or 5 years ago plans for the largest American embassey were drawn up and its being constructed now. I believe Saddam needed to go. And we had numerous justifiable reasons to kick him out. The price tag is having to put Iraq back together establishing stability, which is happening on a greater scale every day.
The best anaology I could come up with is that we just intentinally planted our butts right smack in the middle of the hornets nest so we could watch and react to the radical elements a better than we ever have
I think it will work out. But like anything , as generations go on and on everything takes longer to do. I cant even get my pants hemmed up in a day anymore.
The demographics and cultural aspects in that region will always make for 3 steps forward and 2 back.
Great synopsis of the MLK Day debate. I had hoped CNN would go to some local watering hole afterward and find out what the locals really thought. Such canned entertainment. Can you imagine how much would get done if Hill and Bill get elected president? Even my GF, who tends Democratic, had to admit Hillary is a first-class biotch. Good job.
That was the worst debate yet. What a pathetic, low-brow, gamey display. I just played it back. What a sleaze-fest. Say whatever you will about MLK, but you have to give him credit – he made his point and he made it clearly and succinct. He was a brilliant writer and speaker (those letters to the SBC were just amazing). What a shame that such a debate took part on such a day.
It’s times like these I’m so glad I’m not a Democrat.
It pains me to agree with Jersey, but I will. I also am glad I’m not a democrat
It looks almost now as if the Dem party is going to implode on itself.
And to think. Almost a year ago I debated some libs who though a Hillary/Obama ticket was going to happen. I told them they were high and that the two will go at each others throat. It was only an opinion then.
