No I will answer that because you are right. There is no good or bad thread, the idea is ti generate debate. If it is healthy debate then all the better. Either way debate can be very marketable.

I don't see how we have any choice but to fight the war on terror. We kill them or they damn well will kill us. It's as much self-preservation as was Pearl Harbor, IMO. I have a hard time understanding why "you people" don't get it. Just because of the blind hate for President Bush, you are willing, sometimes I think anxious, to see the U.S. be destroyed. I DON'T GET IT! (But I'm sure you will explain...)

Who is "you people" we are all Americans and for some board members who are not we all share the same planet. I don't hate Bush, there is nothing to hate there, actually he is funny but that's about it, he is not presidential material.
Getting out off Iraq is not going to destroy our country Jay. We need to cut our losses now before we destroy ourselves like you said. Our adventure into Iraq is a sunk cost and there is nothing we can do about it but hope that Iraq finds its own path. Who made us Gods on this planet anyway?

"You people" include you and all the other Hate America First crowd that hang out around here. Iraq is the primary front in our war on terror, and to "cut-and-run," as you advise, will only serve to embolden our enemies and make it much more dangerous for us here in the U.S.

We made Iraq a front for terrorists. Iraq did not invade us and did not send planes to crash into our buildings. We attacked Iraq through lies and we keep shifting our reasons for being there as more of our lies get exposed. Our front on terror was with Usama Ben Laden but now we broaden it and made believers out of people like you that every Arab is out there to get us. That's how we emboldened the enemy Jay.
Since when uncovering the truth and exposing the lies have been an anti-American activity?

You are clearly both demented and deluded.Your foolishness barely dignifies a response.I can only assume you lack the mental ability to assimilate what are now matters of historical fact and draw a logical conclusion.

But how would that lead to hilarity?

What happened to the old "the devil made me do it!" slogan? Now you and the others in the H.A.F. crowd say "It is all our fault!" "We made them do it!" "Don't hold anyone else responsible for their actions when we can blame ourselves?" "And because we made them do it the terrorists are in the right to kill us!" Therefore, 9-11 is our fault and we should not blame the terrorists! Do you hear/see what you are saying?????
