Earlier on CNN they had the Whitehouse reaction to the leaked memo. Hadley said that the memo stated a "laundry list" of options that were under consideration. It's funny though; he did not seem too concerned about the memo being leaked. If you ask me if all of these memos are being leaked, you would think they would find a way to stop it, that is, if they weren't being leaked on purpose.

I wonder how the families of the wounded and killed coalition forces feel now that one of the main architects basically admits that he chumped them out for some war that only the neo-cons know the real reason for. And now that they admit that it was a failed strategy; it's like Nam all over again.


Once again the United States of America faces the prospect of a failed war strategy, which will no doubt call into question the loss of life and sacrifice both human and economic.

However Saddam is no longer a threat to the USA and the rest of the free world. So I guess that is one claim of 'victory' many will try to focus on... In the end was it worth it? can more be done to save Iraq, and stabilize the region through a real international diplomatic effort?

Only time will tell.

Oh, another off the cuff remark...............yawn. Who cares, they went in without reason, why should it matter how they exit. I'm so angry about this, especially as more civillians and true freedom fighters died wanting to get these aholes out of their country. Any other tripe speaks for itself, while you sit transfixed to your TV like a perv watching porn. You Fd up USA, that's why Europe loathes you. Good luck and "God Bless" *fingers down larynx*


That makes about as much sense as an American saying we hate all Europeans because of the actions of Hitler, or that we hate all the Brits because of Tony Blair.

Do you really think that all of America is behind Bush? Did you know that Bush actually lost the popular vote the first time he ran? Do you honestly think that our soldiers are a bunch of "aholes"? Do you really think that most of the nutjobs out there are actually in it for real freedom instead of setting up their own theoracracy or dictatorship?


I'm not calling you a nut job, it's just that the US are always banging on about "Democracy" when democracy is a "true" reperesentation of majority. WTF is there to be beligerent about here. I'm not trying to attack you, I'm just angry in a way, generally about policies. I Know bush lost but FFS, where (if any) is the solution?
