    Do you have a positive outlook or a negative outlook?

    Wow, good question.

    Hawk makes a point, but there, of course, or others.

    Will the American public wimp out, like in `nam. I was in the army during Vietnam 1965-1968, wasn`t very proud of America then.

    Do the Iraq people REALLY want freedom, I think we`ll know pretty soon.

    Will OUR country, and it`s emerging leader`s have the ability to make those hard decisions?

    There are many such questions, but to be blunt, and actually answer your question.

    It`s setting at 50/50 right now, could go either way. I`m pulling for a free Iraq.

    I think Iraq will have a democratically elected gov't, the troop level will be about 15% of current levels, and we will still hear every night if there's been any suicide bombings, fistfights, dirty looks, or unannounced sneezes in the country.

    Build a freedom wall similar to the one that divides the Pretestants and Catholics in Ireland. That might work :eek:
