    I was actually just looknig for an article on this because I was surprised it wasn't discussed. Bush got dissed big time...... I think it's the first time any American leader has been shown that kind of disrespect. (And this from the guy our government got into power).

    It's also on the heels of us not being allowed to set up roadblocks to find a missing soldier.

    Yep... those Iraqis really want us there.

    I read but not know whether it is true that the meeting was just postponed, and the meeting will still be made.
    When USA goes home the region will reorganize itself and the battlefield will be Iraq.
    Maybe this is the best option as those (including neighbors) who do not want the USA to stay outnumbers those who want USA to stay.

    They're saying it's "postponed"... still a major insult.

    I think it sends a clear message when "our" designee in Iraq will meet with the leaders of Iran and Syria, but not with us. Seems whatever we've tried to accomplish is pretty far off course, no? But we already knew that.

    I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with yet another leak published by that treasonous rag, the New York Times.:wtf:

    If Iraq has to become a permanent battleground, as I fear it will, I would prefer it be because the Shiites(sp?) and Sunis(sp?) are killing each other rather than because they are both trying to kill Americans.

    The best option for America's safety is to have the Moslems be too busy killing each other for them to target us. I would say I would rather have the fight take place someplace other than an oil-rich region. But, then again if losing Iraq's oil supply will help get this county off the oil bottle (while reducing the power of large corporations) that may be a good thing

    That culture is a culture of lies and deceit with a rule of power that says might make right concept. They only respect power and might and we have showed them a paper tiger that by political correctness is tied and bound from unleashing its mighty and deadly military force.

    Events are moving on their own volition. Im not sure anyone can change anything. And i dont think it would matter who was President. Events have been set in motion and we will see this war escalate.

    They were set in motion when the top comander of the US forces in the Middle East was fired for saying we would need 300,000 troops on the ground from the start if we wanted to win the war.

    Actually, its more likely they were set in motion when the American people elected a new congress which foriegn governments believe has no spine in carrying out a war, thus causing them to get bolder.
