    But no, Al Queda has nothing to do with Iraq. And they are just misunderstood. They are just fighting for their freedom from us BY KILLING INNOCENT SCHOOL CHILDREN!!!! It wasnt even an attack on Coalition troops. It was another cowardly attack on the people of Iraq. When will people learn that terrorists have no allies. They are equal opportunity murderers.

    Wow, that's horrific.

    So as someone who is not a big fan of GW, I have to tell you, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear this shit is: "Um, what did you think was going to happen?"

    I don't want to get under anyone's skin here (well, actually I guess I don't care some people get pissed off at everything I say just because I am not Republican--do what you will) but this is why some of us feel the way we do about the war.

    I am glad Hussein is captured and his regime toppled. But were there alternatives? There are always alternatives.

    And now:

    1. How/when will order be restored to Iraq and at what cost to the American soldier(measured in body count I suppose--700+ and rising)?

    2. How when will the Iraqi's have a fully trained and sizeable police force/military? This seems essential, although I suppose allied forces can be helping with security while the Iraqis are concentrating on elections.

    3. What will happen on June 30th?

    Well, that's enough questions.
    How many incidents of mass-murder will it take for you to see that things aren't going as planned?

    I mean, clearly the killing of 3000 Americans on their way to work was enough to tell us that we are being targeted by the terrorists.

    But pretty soon we may have lost that number of soldiers.
    I dunno man. These guys are fucking out of their minds. 5 bucks and the promise of being a porn star in Heaven and an 18 year old young man will blow himself up, along with 68 other people....

    You're right, nycflasher. We should have ignored what happened on 9/11 and allowed the terrorists of the world to roam free. :rolleyes:

    We can't sit back and ignore terrorism because we fear others may lash out. The is a WAR against terrorism. People have died and will continue to die - that's what happens in a war. Anyone that didn't foresee loss of life is naive. The end result will be worth the fight. These soldiers will not have died in vain.

    Last time I checked,war never goes as planned. It is ridiculous for anyone to insinuate that Bush or anyone else couls predict what might happen. If we knew what was going to happen or had an exact "plan",then it would be over in 2 days. It will probably be years before things are completely calmed down over there,or maybe never. Let's put the blame where it is deserved though,with the sick people blowing up innocent children.

    Well of course you can't plan a war precisely.
    Many of us predicted that a full-scale invasion of Iraq would be a mess, though. And it is.
    Certainly though, yeah, the people blowing up children are the sick fucks. And if one of them blows up a member of your family who asked what he could do for his country... you might say a little more.

    I don't think I placed blame, I think I asked a few questions none of which you answered here.

    Don't mean to be brusque, Krisy, just being to the point.
