Wow, what ever did W do for you . . .I rather be laughed at for kicking a lil tail over there, than be laughed at for leaving when the going gets tough! I am proud of all that our PRESIDENT and the TROOPS that he commands are doing. Yes there are some bad apples over there, I wont let it spoil my trust and faith in the rest of the bunch. For all those who have served or have children serving, know that your work and gift to the American PUBLIC is very much so appreciated, at least by this REBUPLICAN woman!

My old boyfriend is an army pilot. Been in Iraq about 6 times, including the first wave of the war, flying Blackhawks and Chinooks in the midst of the battle. We had just started dating, and I was scared to death every day for him. But HE was not scared. He believed in what he was doing. He believed that Sadaam needed to be taken down. It was his unit that took out his sons. We have had many discussions about the Middle East. I don't necessarily agree with him 100%, but I admire him for his dedication to the safety of this country. He is currently in Korea, which I believe may be more dangerous than Iraq.

Why don't you all go buy the book "Rule By Secrecy" by Jim Marrs to see the real deal behind Bush, the Iluminati, Tri-lateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the Rothchilds, Morgans, Rockefellers, Skull & Bones, the Federal Reserve System and the Council on Foreign Relations... and much much more. This guy has done his homework!

Thank you for standing up for me, but I do not need anyone to do that. I make my own choices. I have my own opinions, and I stand by them. Everyone has a right to their values. And as everyone knows, most 23 year old Males think only about getting into other Girls pants. I on the other hand, am curious about what is going on in the World. And yes, most of my Friends are not involved with Politics. I'm sure if anyone of them voted this past election. But my Mom is very knowledgeable about these kind of things, and I go to her if I have any questions about currents events. Thank you though. As many of Americans do, I choose not to stand in the dark about what is going on in this world.

Angelgirl, I initially registered as a republican when I turned 18. After a few elections, I switched to the democratic party. Now, being older, wiser, and less trusting of politicians, Im an independant voter. Voting someone into office should be based on this persons ability to see beyond their own opinion and do whats right for the people they represent. Whether they agree or not. Their personal views on abortion, religion, gay marriage, etc should only count when their standing in a voters booth. If the majority wants a YES vote to reprentt them then the politician carries that vote forward. Even if he doesnt agree. Politicians take the definition of public servant to a whole new level. Ever had a boss that made less money than you? NO. Why do govenor's live in mansions, and politicians have expense accounts, etc. when the people they work for barely hover above the poverty line? I wonder if Politics-101 covers "how to manipulate the people, live BIG, and get away with it". Looks like most politicians scored an A+ in that area. I can't imagine the enormous task of being the President of the most powerful nation in the world. What television, and media outlets allow us to see barely scrapes the surface. Of course I would think war was the wrong answer, and Bush was over the top when invading Iraq if all I based my opinion on was media fed. However, I'm smart enough to see that the media picks and chooses what we see and what we get. I see in several of your posts you quote statistics etc. Remember those are all media driven and reported. Keep in mind that YEARS before we invaded Iraq, there was concern about nuclear weapons there. Not just concerns, but the equipment, and materials needed to make such weapons. None of this is new information. Then saddam boots the UN inspectors from the country. Lets be serious here. A man like Saddam didnt boot these inspectors for no reason. We're talking about someone that doesnt blink an eye at mass murdering his own countries people. He built underground bunkers (the size of mansions) and escape tunnels throughout that country. He had years to hide anything he didnt want found. He also has Syria as an ally. He could have simply moved things across the boarder. Just because we didnt find weapons of mass destruction does not mean they weren't there. Its a big country with a sick mind running the show. Saddam had to go. Whether or not the timing was right is here nor there. We ARE there and we're going to finish bringing that country to its feet. North Korea is no different. A sick mind running the show. If these countries who refuse to comply with the UN policies then let the chips fall where they may. US invaded Iraq along with Britian. We didn't take matters into our own hands. Saddam was warned by the UN counsel that sanctions or military action would be the consequences. Anon, from the UN, didn't follow thru on those consequences. As members of the UN, a handful of countries chose to follow through. We have the most troops there. Then Britian. But there are dozens of other countries with military over there helping fight the war on terror. Diplomacy only works when the parties involved are willing to find a solution. All the talking in the world wont make someone like Saddam, or North Korea, Syria, Iran, and others find a peaceful solution. They have their own agenda. Its like the Brady Bill, for example. Do you think that when that bill was passed into law that the criminals, gangs, etc. said. "damn, now we have to wait to purchase firearms". Spare me. Laws work for law abiding people. Criminals dont blink an eye when laws like that are passed. Same thing goes for UN policies. If leaders of controlled countries choose to not comply, they could care less about what might happen. I dont knock you for your viewpoints. I dont knock anyone for how they feel. I probably was the same way at your age. The longer you live and experience, the more you SEE things for what they are, not just as they appear to be.

I apologize for the rash statement that was posted here until recently. Kolohe, I was cranky and stressed from work when I posted. Please forgive me, I promise I will try not to be a negative voice on these pages in the future...

Hey!!! What's up with the bashing of the 23 year olds? Ignorance has nothing to do with one's age... I voted for Bush and I stand by my choice. I do not subscribe to "P. Diddy politics" I chose to read not only my home-town newspaper (which is unapolegetically liberally-biased) but BBC news wires, the Opinion Journal, heck, I even read "The Onion!" A lot seem to forget that Sadaam Hussein's reign of terror is over due to our involvement in Iraq. Osama Bin Laden has been forced into hiding, a fact that greatly diminishes his ability to incite terrorist action. Terrorist cells are being uncovered every day. Do I like war? No. But I understand that at times it is necessary to protect our interests- and our lives. Do I fear for our troops in Iraq? Every day. But I refuse to diminish what they are trying to accomplish by attacking our President and his courage of conviction. Do I wish that everyone loved the U.S. as much as I do? Absolutely! But it simply isn't so, and I feel safer (and prouder!) at night knowing that my country is taking a stand for what it feels is right. Perhaps our actions in Iraq will give a terrorist pause the next time he considers attacking us on our own soil.

While this young lady is certainly entitled to her opinion she is like most people...She is not in a position to know the totality of the facts with which decisions are made...She gets most of her information from the press, which actually reports editorial viewpoints, not news from a disinterested viewpoint...and She formulates an opinion as if she had all the relevant facts. However, such debate is good for the citizens and without it we would be worse off. The interesting thing to me is that we never know what the alternate history would be. What would have happened if Saddam was left alone unchecked? One can speculate, but no one really knows. The fact is he wasn't left alone and we are only left with the current history. For instance what if in 1935, or so, we had gone in and stopped Hitler. Would the world have looked upon us as "Imperialistic War Mongers" as I think a lot of it does today. In retrospect, now that we know the history we are left with, it would have been much better had we done so. But just like today, there were many who thought it was a European problem, and we needed to stay out of it. I disagree with her opinion of his intelligence, and his motives. But my beliefs are simply my beliefs...and I am truthfully no more knowledgeable than she is, about the relevant facts. From all of our elected officials we can only demand that they be mostly honest,%

Can't resist. Opinions are good but in your case, education doesn't factor in. Gauging stupidity is relative. Certainly Bush is no speaker but far from "dumb". Look at Carter. He was an idiot with foreign policy but has done more for this country in other programs post presidency than any other. Bush has a traditional outlook for this country we should all take notice of. You liberals and fence riders gave us the womanizing liar Clinton who was a hard act to follow. He was a coward and set the stage encouraging terroism. This country wasn't important, his popularity was. Let's not forget he left our boys to die in Mogadishu. And Gore, while still senator, chastised North for allocating monies to combat terroism. Oh yeah, and, Clinton, your president, authorized the release of Atta in the 90's. You know, he is the one who plowed into the towers on 9/11 killing thousands. As for Hussein. He WAS a weapon of mass destruction. He also had in place a program for the use of mustard agents and was prepared to use them. He was months away from nuclear bomb capabilities. Osama, no one really knows if he is dead or alive. One thing to remember, we are victims of censorship. How DARE YOU minimize what our soldiers are doing FOR US and our freedom!! Hey you made this about political parties.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and no one can say what is right or wrong in that person's perception of an event or a person,but I feel as a veteran who served in the Gulf War we as Americans should support our president regardless of his flaws.

cmg, think of it this way: she loves her school and her peers, but detests her principal. I get what you're saying, koloche.

Please give me a break, CMG. I too served and your attitude is wrong for civilians and wrong for our nation. While we're in uniform serving, we must respect the chain of command. Once we're out, we have the right to criticize and oppose the policies of an out-of-control administration (remember the retired Generals who spoke out recently?). It's a part of of being an American, a part of that which we took an oath to uphold when we swore to support, protect and defend the Constitution. Dissent is NOT Un-American. It's part of the American culture and it's what distinguishes our nation from so many others. We need more critical thinking--Americans need to quit accepting at face value all of the lies the administration and it's shills foist on the public almost daily. It is perfectly consistent to support the troops and oppose the administration. I support the troops--that's why I think we should be bringing them home, not keeping them bogged down in the middle of a civil war, something for which they weren't trained and which should never be part of an mission for our troops. Good for you, Kolohe. Don't fear speaking out. Keep it up.
