    After reading the threads on the Iraq war and the lib myths that came with it, I had no idea we were this far gone until now
    we won the war in Iraq and to try and re gain the political capital that Obama had 30 months ago there are some people on this message board that the truth means nothing

    its pure desperation and it the very thing the terrorist want us to be doing

    we have well over 10% real UE
    we are in debt so far we are now just printing money, we stopped borrowing it
    we are done in IRAQ and all you hear about it on this message board is what a failure it was

    i AM AT A LOSE FOR WORDS
    HOW DID WE GET HERE PEOPLE?

    Politics has taken a front seat and common sense has been packed away in the trunk. Both sides are guilty of it because it has become a tit for tat business.

    Clinton started it. He made politics blood sport and homogenized the Dem Party with Republicans as their real enemy

    what dr drock
    8537
    and that group is writing is not tit for tat bud
    both sides are not guilty of what there doing

    i am at a loss for words
    to watch people become desperate to find new ways to run this country down and treat the iraqi success and sacrifice as its a game
    there was mistakes made, but not that many
    congress
    the president and the people spoke as one in 2003 and i can see now why in 2012 every bodies just quite
    these people have spent all of there time repeating myth after myth after myth after myth until it became the truth

    Yeah, we're in deep. The state of the union is in dire straits. We may have one more shot next year but I seriously doubt it.

    Guess you'll just have to accept that the warmongering quasi-fascist goose-stepping authoritarian militarized nation you dream of is going to remain a dream, at least for now.

    Define "won".
    Do you mean establish a stable friendly democracy in the Middle East? A Democracy it is yes, but I would not describe it as stable or friendly. The government is friendlier to Iran than it is to us.

    Do you mean how we got the oil? Because we didn't. From a conqueror's standpoint, we lost.

    Do you mean how we found the WMDs? I don't see any.

    The only way I could see that we won is if you were a weapon's manufacturer.


    Also on your point of Republicans vs Democrats, they are very similar, but where they differ they make a fuss that is exponentially bigger than the actual problem. (ex: Abortion, gay marriage, Gun control) It's a bloody show.

    Fiascos aren't normally celebrated.

    You forgot social welfare/engineering, war on poverty, war on everything else within the confines of our own borders.
