Were the ones trying to STABILIZE the Middle East, its Countries like Iran, Syria, Pakistan, that are wanting to take control of the world. Iran has
said countless times that it wants to "wipe Israel off the face of the map".
I think you should talk the the soldiers who have to pay for their own equipment and body armor about that...
the left wing media was saying this a year or 2 back...they were reaching for straws then, and reaching for straws now. I know 2 people in the Army,
and they haven’t had to spend their own money on things like bullet proof vests, boots, ammo, etc.
Iraqi militia already control most of the country and that wont change with the strategy that is being employed by US forces. The only real option is
withdrawal as soon as possible as it's pretty widely admitted that the real reason for the civil unrest is the occupation itself. Iraq has no recent
history ( many many decades) of sectarian violence.
I assume you referring to terrorists...which is not the case at all, they do not have control over the country, not even close.
Withdraw...yeah good option, nothing like doing the cut-n-run.
how bout you stand up for what you believe in?
And there is no "Civil Unrest", you have interpreted that by watching the news everyday...what do you think, that the mainstream media will show you
a new school openings up in Iraq, or water pipelines, power plant? no, no, & no, they only cover the bad...about once a month they throw is a heart
warming story just to keep you think there un-biased.
The terrorist want us to leave Iraq...the Left want us to leave Iraq.....I dont know about you, but I dont agree with terrorist.
...history of Violence...you must be kidding.
They have being rulled/opressed by the dictator/thug ,saddam. for many many decades, they had no freedom of speech...it was you speak, you get shot.
Have you already forgotten all the mass grave we uncovered there?
The vast majority of the deaths are still being caused by air strikes and bombs aimed at American patrols.
air strikes??? No. The vast majority of deaths are by IED's...in which the cowards burry a bomb on a road and detonate is when a convoy is passing
by. Or car bombs, in which they park there car next to an Iraqi market and detonate it. There goal is simply mass killings and to scare the US to
leave the region, and to scare Iraqi's to not step up and take control of their country.
Iran is setting itself up to be the big middle eastern powerhouse, and if the US wins, and Iraq has a stable and capable government...that will
drastically lower their chances of their dreams happening. In fact, there has being many findings from the US military of Iranian weapons and Iranian
soldiers fighting the US. If you think the battle in Iraq is just about Iraq...your only kidding yourself.
The US has no major left wing media outlets and the closest you guys get is right wing one's with the rest even further right.
This quote alone tells me just how diluted you mind is.
There all left. (except for FOX)
CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, ABC...and newspapers: Washington Times, Washington Post ,New York Times, etc.
America is not 'doing good' , unless cluster bombing is doing good in some twisted ' we are liberating you from life' kinda way, by any stretch
of even the most twisted imagination and while i may not be shouting and cheering for them to fail I'm not going to encourage more useless slaughter.
At the beginning of the war even. we used small bombs, this has being the cleanest war EVER. Collateral damage is low, and we dont bomb things like
churches (mosques), hospitals, schools, etc.
useless slaughter....please. Are troops pretty much have their hands tied behind their back, they are very restrained.
The US's point has being to turn Iraq into the Democracy...and its working, its a long hard road, but its happening. If we wanted to we could of
eliminated the whole country, with nukes, or conventional weapons...but we didn't, and wont.
One can only wonder how many gun towers and bunkers that one billion dollar embassy will have...
I dont know, but hopefully a lot.
