If Kerry is elected, 4 more yrs of occupation.

Kush/Chedwards '04
No way. His party base doesn't want it, the American people, if they elect him, are saying they don't want it, and Kerry will want the money we are pissing away there so he doesn't have to raise taxes on everyone, which would torpedo the dems for 20 years. Betcha he finds the quickest way to get out. The quick way is right in front of us - we withdraw into Kurdistan,where the people actually want us, we allow the Shiites in the south to set up there own country and police it themselves, which they are totally capable of doing, and simply walk out of Sunni Iraq and let them butcher each other. Out in a month.

RE: What the heck is going on Iraq?

A much more informative assesment of what is going on Iraq from the British press, much better than what I've been seeing in the American press:

RE: What the heck is going on Iraq?

Here's another good article on the current vs Faux News or the MilquetoastNN view of what is happening in Iraq, IMO. The Christian Science Monitor is a really good balanced news source if you are looking for a break from American Corporate Media:

Yale is in the habit of graduating many undergraduate dummies every year.

Harvard's MBA program is specifically designed for slow learning party animals.

Ann Richards was exactly right about Bush.

Al Gore was exactly right about Bush.

Bush is a simpleton.

Given that voting in the US is voluntary it is of major concern that the minority vote in a majority[:0]

Its a good thing Saddam got religion and loved his neighbors and wanted to help children and stuff. Otherwise, as soon as the sanctions were lifted he'd have probably gone back to being an old meanie and, you know, making his army big again, gassing thousands of people and invading other sovereign countries and stuff. Its okay if he invades countries, but nobody can invade him. Its not fair and it makes him sad. It also makes terrorists mad. Boy, we sure don't want terrorists mad at us. Why can't we all just get along?

RE: What the heck is going on Iraq?

So, Botnst, what do you think about Kitty Kelly's new book? I think blowing coke in Camp David is something GWB should be proud of - there aren't many rich kids who did that and then returned to be President - a genuine accomplishment even if he did go to Yale and all that. Jim
