    Bush's strategy of paying former sunni insurgents to not attack us, and bribing and arming them to fight al qaeda was a brilliant long term strategy, and is paying dividends.

    A huge militia of well armed and angry sunnis.

    That the shia government in Baghdad wants nothing to do with, and in fact fears.

    And if we don't keep paying these sunni warlords, they might get totally pissed at us.


    Could bush have created a worse clusterf*ck?

    The incompetence is stunning. Small wonder he's sitting out the clock. Is there anything he can do without stuffing it up? Has he ever done anything that every worked out? I can't believe this bloke actually got the job of president.

    It's all about money. With enough, you could get a chimp elected.

    Oops, that was redundant.

    I suppose you are familiar with his success as a business man also?

    The sons are not quite as good as Grampa and now Dad with Carlyle. Silverado, Broward Savings and Loan.....Texas Rangers,

    And of course Tweedle Dum chimes in with nothing intelligent to say. As usual.

    You really should do something about this infatuation you have with President Bush.

    Get a fucking job.

    Maybe you'll have less time to commiserate about the worlds problems, because when you do, you get it all wrong.

    So now you are at the name callling stage, Gunny. Out of facts? Oh, I know everything the lefties say is shit, what your side says is fukking holly grail.

    No one said that, but it's a nice distraction. He did create the fuckking problem with the fired Iraqi army going home with their weapons but no pay or job. And yes he did create the problem of arming Sunnis now who may turn against US. And he did ignore many of his senior generals when they didn't see it his way. As a Lt studend pilot, I really don't think he got a whole lot of experience in military strategy that makes him an expert over the career generals who disagreed.

    I have a job. I hope to keep it. But with the way Bush has strengthened our economy, who knows what will happen.

    AND PLEASE QUIT PISSING AND MOANING ABOUT THREADS AGAINST BUSH'S POLICIES UNLESS YOU QUIT YOURS FOR HIM. I THOUGHT THE REASON WE SERVED IN THE MILITARY WAS TO PROTECT FREE SPEECH NOT SELL IT TO ONE SIDE.:eusa_doh:


    WHAT A BUNCH OF FRIGGING HIPPO CRITS.

    Hate to break it to you, but there were plenty of armed, angry sunnis and shias that hated us well before George Bush was ever in office. Remember a little place called Iran back in 1979?
