From 4/22/04, and many of these countries have now pulled out all their troops and withdrawn support.
Out of approximately 151,000 troops, 137,000 were from the U.S.. WHAT does 100 Thai troops help? 39 Macedonian ones? It’s cosmetic.
Yeah and the several THOUSAND british troops in southern iraq are american imigrants are they?
Get real its multinational, if you think its cosmentic then fair enough but if the UN got involved almost the entire task force would be american.
Like in operation desert storm.
A large proportion of the US public wants you out of Iraq, but Bush has said there is NO foreseeable end.
Yet again ME?
What is this "you" stuff all about , I'm not in iraq and I'm no soldier. So you dont believe what bush tells you 99% of the time but this one
phrase you believe?
Come on get real.
They have said that you may be in as long as 10 years.
Yet again whats this "me" about?
Since when does anything take less than a decade or near a year to settle? The balklands are still unsettled and frankly afghanistan is even worse.
To me, that means that the US lacks in the democracy department on this issue. It is clearly not in any way, shape or form the will of the
Is it not? And which part of the people does it not support? Your side or everyone elses?
Mostly they are helping because they were bribed or bullied into helping. And, um, they aren’t the good guys.
Oh arnt they? Since when does good and bad come into the equation without you taking sideS?
Its all perception and opinion.
Yeah sure , bullied bribed, joined willingly against your wishes. Its all the same right?
Seven nations on the list may be in the Coalition, but the Department of State warns Americans not to visit those countries because they could get
killed, kidnapped or blown up.
Yes and how many of those nations are in the UN?
How may of them would the UN use sanctions and troops to help?
Not many I imagine.
Uganda, Rwanda and Honduras, the former Soviet-controlled nations of Georgia, Uzbekistan and Macedonia, and Colombia.
And how many nations like this took part in afganistan, UN peacekeeping operations and the likes?
THANK YOU! That’s far and away from your previous claims that you were SURE that if the UN was there it would be the exact same. Thanks.
Eh? I said I very much doubt that UN could do better infact I think it would be worse....
Really? I was under the impression America was more of the target. What other Western countries have Terror Alerts? What other western countries
has Al Qaeda hit? The Spanish bombing was proven to have not been Al Qaeda…
Eh? Every country has terror alerts, just some dont reach national or international level.
Oh and BTW since when did Al Qaeda come into this. This is about iraq , iraq has more than 1 rogue group in it.
Haha, like what? What resources?
Like say american technology, like that high tech internet you have....would you like china to knock off a quick copy and allow you to buy it for half
America has many resources, hell the fact that it can produce oil or more precisely refine it is a resource that many countries dont do the same
At this point, very few US soldiers in Iraq are under the illusion they are defending America in any way.
I take it this survey of yours (I guess this is another 100 person survery) surveyed several and I repeat several THOUSAND soldiers, marines, airmen
and sailors over there?
Did it? Did it honuestly survey everyone?
Well that ain’t democracy. Plutocracy.
Actually its more the central view you can have, balance of right and left.
If you want more left IE: commitees then nothing will happen.
Hence why there is a chairman of the board, team captain, Manager, director and basically orginiser.
The "democracies" are all nice and fine but break down with groups bigger than usually around 4 or 5, simple leadership and team building.
So who’s forcing you?
No one, hence why I am not talking to you.
See ya, better luck next time.
