Well caz I am a bonafide PNAC neo-con and damn proud of it. Persoannly I think it will be vital for the US to be able to maintain a force capable of 2-4 raq's at once. Unless we have the capability to overthrow despotic government and install a democratic government as we did with Iraq in other bastons of tyranny we will never win the war on terror.
Everybody sad going to Iraq was a bad Idea, thenthay had succesful elections, so the doybters sad we just installed a #e theocracy, but already the bggest shiite party is reachng out to sunni's and the #e moderates want a secular government. Iraq will become the model for Iran, Cuba, Sudan, N. Korea etc over the nect twenty years. After all whats 2-4 years of instability in exchange for a truly free nation?

what about the thoughts i put up about your deficit figure?
My piece above is a news report about how critics are uniting to pan Bush's budget. Obviously, there is a strong contingent that doesn't want this news getting out. Too bad.
A lot of Americans don't like Bush's budget proposals. Others criticize other things Bush has done. Many criticisms actually make it past the mainstream controls, and get coverage.
Looks like some people here want ATSNN to filter the criticism that slips through the big net.
Not me. IMO - concerned Americans have a right to talk about their concerns.
Also IMO - spurious attempts to sabotage debate and redirect attention are just that - spurious.
This thread is about critics panning the budget.
It is not a forum to identify and isolate 'pro-Bush' from 'anti-Bush' factions.
The world is a much, much bigger place than can be encompassed by such narrow definition.
Oh, Seekerof you have fallen for it just like countless of other American citizens, I thought you could see through the lies.
Seekerof My father is 71 years old he started collecting SS when he was 62, my father does not rely on SS for his source of income, my father is a vet and he doesn't used any of the benefits either.
Seekerof if you are a responsible parent or a responsible American, you will be able to make sure that you will not depend on the government in your old age for all your needs.
If you are poor and you have no means of a better life and not chances your will be indepted to the government until the day you die.
If no the responsible citizens that the government is targeting but the lest privileged ones to fall for his ideas and that initiall budget he wants
Don't let yourself fall for the lies, when bush is out of the government he will give a darn of what will happened in the next 40 years, because he will be death.
He is going to get what he wants and is that initial amount of money in the trillions that is what he cares about, nothing else.
He will leave the mess to the next generations to fix or deal with it but the profits to be make will be the pay out he is looking for now in his life time.
I will say not more I will be death in 40 years anyway perhaps my chidren and grandchildren will make the right choices I will make sure of that.
