No. We're fine. Keep pressing through. Iraqis are dying at some very high numbers as of late but the World is evil, what are you gonna do...try and hide from it?

We should keep supporting the Iraqis. They need and we need'em to be free and peaceful.

Takes time.

You seem to be recommending a previous dem plan for withdrawal. I guess you haven't heard how we got here from there.


While working as a journalist in Vietnam, Nayan Chanda took this photo of a Communist tank entering the presidential palace in Saigon on April 30, 1975. Chanda, now editor of YaleGlobal Online, will speak about his experiences there at a panel marking the 30th anniversary of the event.

by that rationale D-Day was a CF that should be called off... with 2000 casualties just training for it.

The forces of violence and repression are strong in the mid-east is what the violence tells us ... but didnt 9/11 clue us into that fact already?

Our military is doing a very good job and its wrong to criticize them simply because the terrorist insurgents keep killing innocent Iraqis and Iraqi and coalition security forces.

Precisely what was said to General Washington about trying to defend New York City.
