Thanks to years of neglect of our public education system and generally good financial growth, W. is what we deserve. Sad. Going down anyone?

You've really got to learn to read: No where did I say the war against terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere was over. That will go on for many years to come. What I said was we ...
  • Won the war w/ Taliban and returned Afghanistan to the people in one month
  • Won war w/ Iraq in two weeks, capturing and/or killing Saddam and hundreds of Al-Qaeda leaders, and returning Iraq to its people

Don't believe everything you think

Yeah won, as in done, over. You also said "Helped Afghanistan and Iraq create democracies in the middle of the ME". Not helping, but helped, as in done, over. Nice to hear things went so swimmingly while I was gone.

Both countries have constitutional democracies in place. I didn't say anything went "swimmingly," any more than our U.S. constitutional democracy went "swimmingly." It took us about 100 years and a civil war to get it right. So based on our experience, some might say it IS going swimmingly in Iraq and Afghanistan. Don't you think?

Except for the part where WE decided to become a Democracy instead of a country a half a world away Deciding we were going to be a Democracy, and oh, by the way, only after they blew the shit out of a few hundred thousand of our citizens and destroyed our infrastructure.

Then, when we had our little Democracy, we did not have an occupying Army telling us how we were going to run it and a timetable to get our shit together because polls back home were screwing with the homeland''s happiness.

We also did not start our Democracy with a brand new visiting Terrorist Organization that never existed there before which stirred up shit and caused everyone to hate everyone.

Our little Democracy was also not forced to have two [or three] tribes that HATE each other live together in harmony so we could let our Democracy grow.

But you are right J, the parallels are staggering.

NOW, about those sources of yours? Any DATA to back up your BS? Or just your same ol' same ol'?

Yes, I remember the last time you asked that question. and the answer is the same. Now the US forces are in Germany, not as occupiers but as partners and they seem to LOVE the money we give them every year to keep our planes and supplies and troops there. We are also partners in NATO.

Japan and the US play a game every so often about our presence there. They have not ever asked us to leave, nor do the citizens try to kill us on a daily basis. They also take our lease money without question.

Note that, since late 1946, we have NOT had an occupying force in either Japan or Germany. Also note we have a military force in Spain [which we have not been to war with since 1898], England [since 1812] and many other countries so maybe you need to retire that particular question as it is not very germane [or any of the other Jacksons].

The point, I see you got.

Give it a chance, or what is the Dems plan
for the ME, never heard it.

We been more compassionate to the people of that country than any other country we've invaded.
Our only mistake was thinking they could handle the freedom on their own, clearly right NOW
that are having a hard time of it.
