and women. And I agree.
And people think that this president will go down in history as a great leader.
I agree, Barry. No comment on the president, though.
Amen, wizard. He will go down as one of the weakest Presidents in American history. This war was waged because of oil, not Osama. We can thank Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, the architects of this fiasco. Condaleeza Rice said last week that we may be in Iraq for another 10-15 years.
To say that the 2000 have died in vain is tragic. They died in service to their country. How many times has our Homeland been attacked since we went to War with Iraq. I have a great deal of pride in our services. They have fought with Honor and Dedication to their Country. They have protected us from becoming the front lines. I give them and their families Thanks for the ultimate sacrifice. God Be with all of them and protect the righteous. I pray Psalms 91 over our Armed Forces and wish them a safe return. We are in God's cover. Let us not stray from Him. God Bless You!
Pancho, I'm with you 100%. Recall the regret people speak of when referring to the crummy homefront support--lack thereof--of the U.S. Servicemen/women during the Vietnam Era. SHAME ON those who now regress to the same type of behavior and grumbling. Easy to raise a fist, or opinion, at home, while OTHERS are fighting the battles AND navigating the political policies and decision-making. Think you can do it better, want to show someone what they "ought" to do?? Get out there and do it then.....this is crap.Bet every last one of you who criticize their politicians and those LIVING the enforcement of our civil liberties haven't even bothered to attend your local City Council meetings, school board meetings, or even "oops"'d out on voting here and there....
Pancho and comment4uAMENAnon 3:38 If we are over there because of oil then why has the price gone up so much since we first went?
its the lizard hid the kids! lizard go back to the hole you came from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How many more will have to die before we make our exit? I praise our military. They are brave and true heroes. But the leaders of this country are the ones that are failing these young men and women; putting them in harm's way in a situation that is rapidly becoming another Vietnam. I can't help but wonder if the decision would of been different if his twin daughters had been serving in the military rather than attending college.
Thank God for Bush and I am proud to have him as my leader.
Well said anon7:49. It is or will be another Vietnam. It is not the military that I am critical of at all, its our leader who sent them there for a reason that is not worth our American troops risking their lives for let alone dying. And condoleesa, can you spell R-E-S-E-R-V-E-S? We thought the war would be over real quick and we or I should say HALLIBURTON would have access to it. That hasn't happened, because it wasn't as easy as we thought it would be, a la Vietnam. So instead, we or I should say President Bush gave HALLIBURTON the contracts for all kinds of things like for example the food and commissary contract. That in and of itself ought to be the subject of a Congressional inquiry.
I am sad people had to die. People die here in America every day. If I have to go, please let me go for a cause I believe to be noble regardless of what everyone else thinks.
Pancho,comment4u and Condoleesa, i am glad to hear there are some good people left out there. Im not sure what or who most of these people think they are, but i do not see them at the head of the strongest nation in the world nor do i see them advising the leader of the free world......now on another note to all you "stay at home leaders" i know you think by sitting at home watching FOX news you are serving your country and you also think that you are getting all the information that is needed to make a decision for the nation as a whole, i regret to inform you that the BulL@#$%^ they are feeding you on the Tube is 98% worthless...dont you think that our leader gets more detailed information than what fox news presents?...i would venture to guess the majority of you think you really get good news on CNN..better than most right?...well i would bet our president doesnt give your beloved CNN OR FOX even a minute of his busy schedule. so next time you decide to sit at your computer and grab the nearest bag of chips and put down our leader and what he is doing for our country, think of the soldier who is fighting so that you can sit there and get fat...and mouth off about somthing you dont know enough about to even open your mouth
Techsan84...love the Blogger ID...thumbs up yourself. It vexes, concerns and saddens me that so many people abuse the freedom of speech these days. Propagandizing and slandering isn't what the Framers had in mind. But, when the ire rises in my throat....ahh...I then visualize most of the talking faces to all have that teenage, "It's not fair" expression going for them. Then, I qualify....If being President was as cut and dry and tabletop-tennis-local-news-volleying easy as so many EXPECT/INTERPRET it to be, hell, there'd be more applicants for the job. As it is....any takers? Didn't think so.
You "stay at home leaders" need to read "Deliver Us From Evil" by Sean Hannity...and also think about tuning into his radio show. WBAP 820 at 3 pm daily...this might also help to enlighten your one tracked mind.comment4u....Right oN!!
Has anyone among you considered that it is possible to be pro-America and anti-war? To support our troops overseas and still abhor the war they're committed to fight. . . it isn't about liberalism or conservatism .... Democrats vs. Republicans....it's about morality.....Iraq has never been a hotbed of terrorism until the instability caused by the US invasion. Junior Bush had to avenge Daddy's shortcomings.....and 2,000 of your kids have died............wake up America!
I think it is possible to be pro-American and anti-War. I think most that are against this war have no military background. I am sure there are some that do have a military background but most of us with a military background support it. Military families tend to stay military families. The draft pulled in a lot of people against their will and changed the face of the military briefly. Most military families strongly believe and take great pride in being the first line of defense.I would also like to point out that while enlistment is down, reenlistment is up. Everyone that enlists or gets a commission doesn't do it because that was their only option. Many are very bright, very successful people that believe in what they are doing. Many have given up other more lucrative careers to be there and do what they are doing. Consider Pat Tillman for example, he gave up a huge salary and went because he believed it was the right thing to do. That is what fills our military, people that believe it is the right thing to do.
Last time I checked our military was made up of volunteers.I understand that lost soldiers are heartbreaking, but I do feel it's noteworthy to point out that only about 3/4 of the 2K dead in Iraq so far was due to hostile fire.
Exactly, Portland. AND, for the time involved, the numbers are VERY L-O-W for a war ratio. Wizard may find him/herself reading to the grandkids about Bush being the greatest Leader of his time.And, No true American is "pro War." Terrorists are pro war...this is America's answer. To sit back and do nothing would be ridiculous....bad endings....anyone remember WWII?
2,000...big number....way to big. But we'd all rather be concerned with keeping the queers from getting married. I think our priorities are in the wrong place.
Bigcatdaddy,YOU are a silver tongued devil! I love it when you say "queers"
Queers....I said it again, just for you! Hee hee!
Bigcatdaddy,I think I love you!
Oh, my gosh.....thanks ALOT, Condi! Now, I've got that "I Think I Love You" song by the Partridge Family stuck in my head....YUCK!
Would "I'm a Believer" by the Monkees be better?
