    OK folks, Instead of continuing to split hairs, defining and redefining terms, challenging time lines, I for the sake of the truth, will admit to the fact that Bush lied. I can't prove it but what difference does it really make ? Will he be the first President to lie? Will he be the last President to lie? He was president on 9/11 when the worst attack on American soil occured. He consoled the country and assured us that the perps of this crime would not go unpunished. We attacked Afghanistan with the support of nearly every country in the world. The taliban and terrorists we killed and sent running to the hills where they are still being hunted down and killed. This was the overt beginning of our war on world terrorism.
    The administration decided, rightly or wrongly, that the next country that posed a threat to the US was Iraq. After REPEATED requests for action on the part of the UN , MANY attempts at forming the strongest coalition possible,
    offers to Iraq that if Saddam and his family would leave we would not attack, the United States Military made good on our promise to attack.
    The military was highly successful and the oppostion has diminished to rogue bombers and foreigners who hate democracy.
    We are now in the process of returning the country to the Iraqis. The ability of Iraq to attack the United States or its neighbors has been destroyed and the Iraqis will be free to determine thier own fate. No it is not perfect--nothing is.
    While the world continues to pick apart the events that preceeded the war, some things are certain. Afghanistan is no longer a viable terrorist training camp. Saddam is captured and his sons are dead. A new form of govt will take hold in Iraq. Thousands of people who would be happy to kill westerners are themselves dead. We have shown the world that we will defend ourselves with military strikes overseas if necessary. We have proved to ourselves that we can "go it alone" and become educated as to the ways of terrorism and new ways to fight it.
    I don't care if the admininstration "lied" to accomplish these things and if they did one must ask themself why lies are necessary to protect the US from people who are still eager to destroy us. It is a "soft spot" in our countries overall defense plan? Is it people who refuse to believe the war on terror is real?Is it that political parties feel thier influence is slipping when prioties become one of self defense? Is it fear that we will encourage more attacks by defending ourselves. Are people just ignorant or apathetic to larger issues than themselves? I sure don't know but I'm tired of all the " liar liar pants on fire" posts that do not even acknowledge the WOT and offer no other solutions.
    Yes our country is split but at least we still have one. We can identify leaders of the opposing factions and have an opportunity
    (or responsibilty) to press these leaders to form a coalition OF America so that as a country, we can continue to thirve and help the peoples of other countries thrive too if they aren't to busy trying to destroy us.

    Lie some more George if you must. The goals are too important to be left for the weak of heart, greedy,selfish and ambitious.

    Even though new facts are out supporting the administrations postion on going to war, the left continues the " Bush lied" chant. Is that all they have to offer America? Thought I would revive my "SO WHAT" mantra.

    Cmon DK----don't give up yet--I think you would be a good representative for the left to help form a coalition for america! It certainly require people with the abiltity to humble themselves. ( could that be the meek?)

    It becomes increasingly difficult to continue to fight for america when every single day I have to deal with decent liberals not doing or saying a damn thing about the continued stupidity by those on the far democratic far left, as well as the wondrous glee that the GOP finds with the continual generalizations and grouping the entire liberal movement with the radical left in their movement to dominate and crush any semblance of non-conservative beliefs and principles. It's also extremely disconcerting how ignorant america watches the conservative movement play the word games with minutia on everything they say while broadly interpreting everything the political opponents say and they suck it all up like a reality tv show.

    Makes me want to secede the union with a ten acre plot of my own.

    Hey DK, you think the thinking people on the right don't have a problem with the turkeys too? We have the racists and neo-nazis, not always redundant, who tar us all.

    We have nearly as many conspiracy believers as the left, but ours can be even loonier than yours.

    In both cases it seems the problem to me is that too many good people are literally doing nothing. Not reading, not discussing, not helping with message, and not voting.

    I would surprise you with some of my middle of the roads views also. This CAN be done if citizens chill out a bit and spend time demanding more of thier own party and bash the other party less.
