To win the Iraq situation the gloves need to be removed. Remove the lawyers from the line companies. Remove the embedded reporters. Of course the polls will be "negative". Just look at the garbage reported, vice truth of all actions in Iraq. When reports of a joint operation is mentioned, there are omissions of facts. In contrast, when bombings occur, there is sensationalism of facts coupled with omissions. The social/comunnist media complex is working 24/7, 365. Yes, I am unhappy with Bush's handling; take the gloves off. Yes, I am disatisfied; turn up the heat. More Patton, less patent leather.

yes, the tide has turned. People in America are finally realizing that this war is based on too many lies. Let's just get out of Iraq and get on with impeaching boy george.

Impeach "Boy George"? I thought he was an icon for the "Culture Club" of diversity? Here's one for ol' J, you probably say you "support the troops", not the "war. Let's assume you are correct. Seeing how this is a "all volunteer Army", meaning no draft or conscription, you support men and women who join the service through their own personal convictions of "Honor. Courage. Commitment." and to serve in defense of right versus wrong. A service of sacrifice for a common good and freedom. Serving to "support and defend" the Constitution of the United States. If your "support" of these troops who exemplify goodness, isn't that a defacto statement of support of their mission? If so, doesn't that make you a walking contradiction? By the way, how much have you donated to the Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society? Or do the Tri Lam's recieve most? Just curious. Let's further assume we pull out. Are you suggesting a "Super Persia" state exist? Read your history. "Either way, I don't give a damn. You want me on that wall, you need me on that wall."

If the liberal press would print something possitive instead of always printing the negitive I feel the war in Iraq would still be positive in peoples minds.

sick boy do you really think this war was a good idea? do you really think it is going well? do you really think that Iraq had anything to do with 911? do you really think that iraq had wmd's? it is ok to be wrong - just try to think. but you are are right is an all volunteer army of the "poor" and according the the recent recruiting efforts even they aren't willing to sign up and die for this stupid war.

J, J, the "war" in Iraq was never over re: Jan 1991. Only a cease fire was signed by all coalition and Iraqi forces. So, in essence, are you saying Iraq was justified in invading Kuwait? Next to the Cold War, Iraq is the longest battle/war in American history. I believe Schwartzkof was correct in petitioning President Bush in 1991 to make it a war of anihilation vice a campaign of suppression. Do I think Iraq played a role in Sept 01? Yes. Why? Saddam was enabling terror orgs to train in, and provided funding for said orgs. Wasn't Abu Nidal found dead in Baghdad? Yes. Were Iraqi intelligence agents working at Logan? Yes. To address your statement regarding the "poor" joining the military; you are correct. Using the average age of enlistees and their probable median income at the time of enlistment, and the average income cut off of being classified as "poor" by American standards I offer this: I don't and didn't know of any independantly wealthy service members. Most first termers are 18-23 years of age; do you know anyone within that age bracket who makes more than $30,000 per year prior to volunteering? Patano left a six figure salary in NYC to re enter the Marines, sons and daughters throughout the nation, and some from other parts of the world join our military, from all socio-economic backgrounds. So, I further submit, I would much rather be classified, by U.S. standards, as "poor" vice any other definition of "poor" throughout the rest of the world. "For those who defend it, Freedom has a special flavor the protected will never know." Anonymous 1968 "C" Ration box, Khe Sahn, Republic of Vietnam. I, for one, would GLADLY sell my business for just one more day back "down range". There is more at stake in the battle against Hitlers in Headscarves than the personal comforts you enjoy. Suggested reading: Plato's Republic, Ciseros de Republica, Rise and Fall of Western Civilization, Westfallia Convention of 1648, U.S. Constitution, U.S. Declaration of Independence for starters. When finished, I invite your input on truth, justice, and reason. SB
