    It's obvious to me that we are dealing with Al-Queda here in Iraq. The three explosions at the same time in Basara this morning during rush hour as an Al-Queda trademark. I'm sure that's what in Fallujah. Do we really think that these guys are going to lay down their arms? Don't you think its time to send in mother green and her killing machine?

    Absolutely! These people don't negotiate so why waste our time, they understand 1 thing, death and power. Until we realize that i'm afraid we are in for a long haul.
