I had a chance when I went to Iraq to talk to some marines and some civilians and Doctors at some of Iraq hospitals and their charts show more.
1)2 out of every 10 babies are born maldeformed
2)1.6 million dead at hands of America.
3)The American press has lost it's integrety and can't be trusted
4)I was there
5)10 years of American trade embargos on Iraq has caused over 500k+ children to die in the last 15 years.
6)Marines told me they were ordered to gun down women and children of suspected terrorist families and the husbands then arrested and sent to gitmo and other prison camps.
The war on Iraq is a genocide the American media are kept in there hotel rooms and all the numbers charts and news reports come from them. The people of Iraq and the international community oppose America's quest to have a perpetual war. Depopulation of Iraq and the middle east? This is a war you can't win Iranian and syrian militant are joining together with Iraq's forces to fight America.
America needs to repair it's integrety because it is now veiwed like Nazi Germany was in ww2 by half the world. The fact that America wants to destroy power plants in Iran will cause a huge war bigger then any other faught in history.

And yet it was the aid of traitors in our own country - those with no resolve - that allowed them voctory. Had we kept at it we would have won.

. . . those "traitors" as you label them, were actually concerned and pissed off citizens, protesting, as per their right, against unlawful activity the U.S. government was engaging in in - their names.
You'll have to forgive a multitude of us now, for not feeling your particular sense of resolve in the case of the Iraq war. I, for one, came out on the record, opposing the invasion based on many valid reasons. I was never resolved to INVADE Iraq. There were no credible reasons, as we now know.

The "concerned citizens" of the Vietnam era? You mean like Jane Fonda, going on a publicity tour of North Vietnam, and posing atop an AA gun, which had been used to shoot down American pilots?
Or maybe the Chicago seven, who helped disrupt the '68 Democratic election, in an attempt to keep more mainstream liberals from speaking THIER minds about the war--those ones who were rioting and beating up the police?
Or maybe you mean Abbie Hoffman, encouraging teenagers to commit theft in bookstores, to "bring the system down?"
Like Sean Penn and other Hollywierd celebrities volunteering to act as human shields in order to lend their names to Saddam's propoganda campaign.
Were you outraged in 1998 when President Clinton launched dozens of cruise missiles into Iraq, because he had expelled arms inspectors?
Were you against Clinton's act, because you didn't believe Saddam had weapons of mass destruction?
