  • Why America Should Stay the Course in Iraq

    tomnbeverly:

    Interesting conclusion, but I agree, as always there seems to be a massive hole in the Democratic Party argument (100% ideological, 0% practical) that they will deliberately ignore to attack their conservative opponents as against the populist trends of politics since the disastrous 2006 elections.

    do the dhue:

    Thank you for the compliment, and to my surprise I got a 99, grammatical errors being the only mistake. The surprise was that my teacher is a hardcore liberal who puts Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States” in our curriculum and she tried to write rhetorical questions about how Italy and Portugal didn’t represent democracy (even though that was not the subject), but I got a chance to make the history department at my school look like fools so I guess it worked. :)

    ishabibble:

    The left will claim that we were imperialists who simply were raping Vietnam of its resources, the truth is that the enemies we fought were far worse even then the French Colonial Army before us. I know this because a member of my family (South Vietnamese police commander) was jailed for thirteen years to be ‘re-educated’ by the PAVN.

    SoldierDad:

    My apologies for the incorrect body count and the mistake on LBJ’s history, it was of the Coalition force as a whole.

    norton:

    Thank you for the historical information, I am learning from this website every day. :)

    Blue State Insurgent:

    Portugal is a long forgotten military power and left out of the textbooks (in a positive manner) because Antonio Salazar was a Fascist. Many will state how we are overextending our 500,000 active duty military force in two nations; Portugal had 170,000 troops spread over three African jungle nations (Mozambique, Guinea, and Angola) with a population one-three hundreth of our own and fought for thirteen years.

    Another unknown fact is that Cuba under Castro fought two counter-insurgency wars with ally Communist nations and lost more than America did in Iraq in both. They fought one in Somalia with Mengistu Haile Mariam’s Ethiopian Army and one in Angola against UNITA from 1975 to 1991.


    And thank you all for the compliments, hopefully this will reach more left leaning people so we can debate them. :)

    No problem, glad to get the word out. The best way to spell out success to liberals is to tell them of all the things the Democrats charged Bush with not doing, border with Syria, water supllies, oil output, electricity, etc... then lookat the results now.

    But of course those who don't want the Iraqis to live in a fundamentalist sh*thole are "non-realistic" and "right-wing Nazi Republicans".

    I hope this will clear things up for those who have the idea that electing a Democrat means less or no war, the Democrats have a history of intervening, for better or for worse, more than the Republicans have.

    Many of these verses are taken out of context. For example you quoted Surah 9 verse 5.

    look at the the first verse in Surah 9
    009.001
    YUSUFALI: A (declaration) of immunity from Allah and His Messenger, to those of the Pagans with whom ye have contracted mutual alliances:-

    We arent allowed to attack anyone of which we have made treaties with. That verse that you quoted is saying not to engage in war during the Islamic sacred months.

    Non-Muslims living under Muslim law must pay a tax. (Jizya)

    Terrorists based on 'religion' will always use one quote or another taken out of context to claim the moral high ground. Islam gives no justification for sawing the heads off of innocents or blowing yourself up in a resteraunt, and if it does I would like someone to post a damn quote to prove it.

    The spread of Islam was done most by Abu Bakr and Umar, not Muhammed.

    To compare Islam and Nazism is to compare rabbits and lions, they cannot be compared because Islam would never tolerate what the Nazis did to innocent Russians, Slavs, Poles, Catholics, Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and Handicapped.

    I know of the story of the Grand Mustafa of Jerusalem in the Shutzstaffel (SS), but that does not represent Islam by any stretch of the imagination. That's the logic terrorist sympathizers and hardcore liberals use to blanket criticize our troops for the deplorable actions of a few.

    As for your second comment give me the passage that says that.

    You haven't learned enough then my friend, Muslim-American Marines participated in the invasion of Afghanistan willingly after 9/11. What was done by 19 despicable men will never be forgotten by anyone with a heart in them, but the war is not against Islam the president even said that himself, it is against fundamentalism that seeks to destroy everything we stand for.

    They aren't trying to kill us, and does the word 'terrorist' indicate maybe why many of them aren't actively going against them? They are violent thugs who will kill one and his whole family for doing something they believe contrary to their own perverse interpretation of Islam. Remember what happened to Anwar al-Sadat, former president of Egypt for signing a peace accord with Israel's prime minister Menechim Begin?

    Oh is that so? Perhaps you do not know that like us Muslims pray to Jesus and believe he is a prophet, they have a different story as to what happened to Jesus. They do know God and that by being a good person they will get into heaven, hell in the Quran is described as a fiery pit where those condemned drink from a salty well.

    Correct, as well as the most vicious groups are attributed to radical Salafi Islam, but groups claiming to be 'Christian' like the Lord's Army in Uganda will rape a child's mother and cut her throat right in front of them, they will burn and steal and shoot, they are another form of radicalism.

    The conservatives I've had the pleasure to meet in my lifetime all remember famous Republicans who really defined political philosophies contrary to the leftists. People like Abraham Lincoln,, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolige, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan.

    Barry Goldwater could have done great things for this nation but this was the 1960's, the era where if you didn't agree with people who were Socialists borderline Communists, you were a 'close-minded McCarthyist'.

    It's a shame isn't it?

    Wonder how much longer until this country goes Socialist....

    That's the weird thing, you ever notice that in democracies the scale keeps tilting more and more to the left as history progresses? Reagan tipped it back right but only so far until Clinton politics took control. Right wing candidates who actually stick to their philosophy are reviled by the left as well as the 'moderates' in our nation.

    All that one needs to look at for proof of this is Europe.

    That was a refreshing speech by a very forgotten politician, it's a shame Lyndon Johnson won the election, Goldwater could have greatly reduced the government's power before LBJ went and quadrupled it. :(

    It seems like very few politicians out there are adhering to the spend-less, save-more, laissez-faire economic stance now, more than ever.

    Reagan advocated smaller government and made good on that promise by busting the leech-like unions, but he spent incredibly outrageous amounts of money for military research, clandestine operations in Nicaragua, and direct military interventions in Grenada, Libya, and Lebanon.

    George Bush wants smaller government, but due to events none of us could have foreseen the government's power increased with the Department of Homeland Security being formed and the U.S.A PATRIOT Act (which don't get me wrong I support) being drafted soon after the devastating 9/11 attacks. His plan to reform the dying Social Security System flopped because it was too far ahead of many people's ideals (a temporary bubble of wealth that would soon burst mattered more to big-government liberals obviously) then they could worry about at the time. He hasn't vetoed a single spending bill yet, largely because of Iraq and Hurricane Katrina, but seems overall disillusioned on where to cut programs that aren't working and spending that isn't necessary.

    I don't think of Bush as a big liberal spender like people think he is, I think he is merely reacting to the catastrophes which have struck our nation since 9/11 and has tried to keep the economy going after our former president Clinton had rode the Dot Com Boom to re-election and made no economic plans after that to prevent a major downslump. Bush cut taxes and our economy is in fine shape, despite what Newsweek and the New York Times claim.

    Bush seems to want to lower spending, and I think he is, but it's still at an unbelieveable level. It just seems like everything the government does today costs billions more than it used to. I don't see many politicians standing up for real conservative economics anymore, I see liberal economics infecting Congress to the point where an unlikely veto from Bush wouldn't make any difference at all.

    What do you think?

    Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was involved with the Ansar al-Islam in Iraq over a year before the invasion commenced, Ansar al-Islam is recognized internationally as a terrorist group and is credited with killing many Kurds in the north, as well as being supportive of the Ba'athist regime up until and after the invasion in 2003.

    But don't tell that to liberal journalists, otherwise you are an imperialist, right-wing, racist, biggot, close minded, class enemy. You have to be 'open minded' when liberals make shithead comments but if a conservative displays a fact you have to discrad him/her as a 'FOX News Watcher'.

    I am starting to believe Ann Coulter's statement of liberal infallibilty more and more, they are so arrogant it's amazing.

    I don't remember Ronald Reagan being ab exactly beloved figure for liberals, and he gave them complete amnesty in 1986.

    Bush is doing what is necessary to put these immigrants on the path to law obiding, tax paying citizenship. When they are allowed to work under the radar they can leech off American welfare programs and largely in Democratic states too. If they are citizens, we officially have more people to fill in the growing gap between professionals and hard working blue-collar workers.

    That's always been my perspective.
