Is a play on the colors (ok colours for you) red (republican) and blue (democrat) that are used to show what party took a state during an election.
I'm not a big fan of the way Bush has handled things.
Do I think we should have invaded Afganistan? Yes The were a defacto al Quaida state and a growing danger to the world.
Do I think we should have invaded Iraq? Sorta
There were bigger fish to fry 1st. We really needed to finish in Afganistan 1st. By finish I mean fully live up to all objectives including the
rebuilding objectives, this would have truly made the right kind of example out of Afganistan. We need to leave Afganistan as a country read for the
21st century not the 19th.
Once that was done we could look at countries like N Korea, Iraq and Iran.
The people of those countries instead of seeing the mess we made in Afganistan would see a new country ready to take its place on the world's
stage. Then IF it were truely necessary to invade
Iraq we could gone in with a greater number of troops (because US forces would no longer be
needed in Afganistan) and met with less resistance because the example of Afganistan would be a shining model instead of a mess.
I think Bush has grand vision but short sight.
I would also have not pushed for Patriot Act 2. Patriot 1 if effect expaned the RICO stautes to include terrorism, PA2 simply goes to far.
So would I be for bombing other countries? Maybe it would depend on what the circumstances were.

although im from the UK, i really cant see the difference between republican and democrats..... both parties bomb other countrys and stuff.......
but if i could vote i would vote for nader..... well actually... i wanted to vote for kerry so we could get that 'dubya' out on his ass, so what
would make your purple party different from any other party? would you bomb more or less?? do we have to wear purple all the time?
