    It should make you feel so calm knowing what the Dems want to do if elected. I am sure everyone will slep better at night knowing what their top goals are..............


    At the conclusion of the two-hour debate, the candidates were asked what their top priority would be for their first 100 days in office:

    Edwards: "Travel the world" and "re-establish America's moral authority."
    Clinton: Bring home U.S. troops from Iraq.
    Obama: Bring home U.S. troops and push for national health care.
    New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: Upgrade U.S. schools and push a $40,000-a-year US minimum wage for teachers.
    Delaware Senator Joe Biden: End the war in Iraq and defuse tensions with Iran and North Korea.
    Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich: Help "reshape the world for peace" and end all nuclear weapons.
    Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel: Remind Congressional leaders they can end the war in Iraq now.
    Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd: "Restore constitutional rights in this country."

    Was that meant for Pelosi? Sounds like what she’d say if in the same situation…..

    I hope these liberals are thinking about the future and the economic impacts that will/could happen if we up and get out of iraq. I am for being more of a monitor over there but if we cut and leave, oil will become like it has in other areas of the world were terrorist thrive. We’ll loose any control over the market with China and India having the upper hand on oil and prices due to the cartel bidding to the highest. We could see a civil war in our own country over lack of resources since oil will become more and more difficult to get. People will lose jobs and loose those monster homes and everything else we love so much and mass chaos will become the norm. So when we look at the moment I hope we all are looking further down the road like say 30~40 years.

    Dogs and cats will live together , allthe ice cream will melt and kids will start wearing their pants around their waists again(oh wait that last one might be a good thing).

    The songs of Doom are beig sung a little loud here I think.

    Look they are fighting and they will fight unless you want to force another Sadam on them.

    We blew it when we took the shit cork(Sadam) out of the bottle (Iraq)

    Yeah he was shit but he kept the bottle from overflowing with ethnic hatered.

    They have hated each other since Muhamed died and NEVER wanted to be a country.

    Bush sold the blood of our bravest to oil speculators.

    Its time to leave thier house,its not our country.

    When you have made a wreak of someones house you dont stay and threaten them while they clean up even if they start to fight.

    YOU leave and pay restitution.

    IT was a bad plan and now we need to stop doing the same stupid thing over and over.

    ITS TIME TO COME HOME.

    No but we've got to figure out ways (that is if we like our ways of living) to become non-dependant on M/E oil and how we can figure out how to become more in tune to the markets or we'll be up a creek. The Sunni/Shia drill has and will continue until the sun shines no more. My point was we back out without any plans for our futures and no amount of finger pointing is gonna help us. And these are real situations I mention and hopefully these candidates are thinking about these as they do there campaigning.

    it took us 30 plus years to even figure out the vietnam thing, yeah saddam did hold things together, but it was only amatter of time when we had to deal with these knuckleheads. Say it ain't so but it was, oil is a serious deal and make no mistake we could see a serious global melt down if the terrorist got the oil and controlled it. I'm a veteran and I'm not exactly thrilled of the current events in Iraq anymore than anyone else. But leaving would not be a wise move. If you take out politics from all the media hype and put in econmonics it effects us all.

    The Iraqi congress has asked for troop freezes and timetables for withdrawl.

    If we stay and continue to ignore what they are asking for their country we are nothing but occupiers.

    How would you think the world would feel about us occupying this country for OIL?

    You see this is how you make many more terrorists.

    We can structure a plan to come home by truely letting the generals in the field determine how it would work best instead of firing them when they dont say what we want them to say.

    Will oil cost more?

    probably!

    will we all shrivel and die?

    no!

    Will we stop creating enemies all over the Muslim world?

    It will sure help!

    Will we stop spilling the blood of our bravest into the unforgiving sand of Iraq?

    YES!
