    we have an election coming up between the left and the rights. the main detmering factor will be the war in iraq. the only probelm in america is we are done fighting iraq people!!!! right now we are over in iraq not to fight iraq but terrorests. in simple words we are training iraq to protect itself. we are fighting terrorsts because we are friends with alot of the middle eastern countries. these countries asked us to be there and help them through their hardship. on 9/11 we were attacked. you people against the war on terror are saying the fathers, mothers, uncles and aunts, fire fighters, police, and soldiers die in vain. you want to let all the people die in vain. i realize that soldiers will die, there is a few things wrong with using that as an defense. the draft is gone the soldiers chose to go to iraq. i do realize there has been corruption in that catogory but still. i am not saying o well they died. i see soilders as angels welling to die for their country those are patriotic people. back to the issue, soldiers who went to iraq by chose or the children and women.

    Silly, uninformed post. It may have worked a year ago, but Iraq is not much of an issue, Barack's problem is going to be how to step back from his withdrawal schedules. Biggest problem today, not saying November, is the economy.

    what may have worked say we shouldent let people die for no reason. obviously iraq is an issue we are at war that effects everything including economy. i do think Barack needs to shut up about withdrawal and finish what was started instead of throwing up hands and stoping.

    Whether the issue is Iraq or the economy, BO is in trouble. People aren't going to like his socialist ideas for raising taxes and they're not going to like his cut and run policy either.

    War affects EVERYTHING. Open up any history book and you can see that war has numerous repercutions on everything, including the economy. The economy is not an isolated institute. Everything is interconnected. So if you talk about how the economy is doing, you are also talking about how the Iraq war is affecting the economy.


    Didn't you guys learn this in Political Science in college.

    Yeah, so what? I mean about war 'affecting everything'? Speak to the specifics you addressed in the beginning. No strawmen, in this case I've been cited in two history text books I contributed to. I have ba's in both history and pol. sci. I'm certified to teach econ at high school level.
