According to many we should not send any more troops to Iraq. However it has been deemed tat if we don't our military there will suffer. Can we take any more loss? I like many wish our troops were here back home washing their cars, enjoying their children and helping the economy. However at this point in time that just isnt going to happen until we clean up what we started. Here is the reality..........Or is it?
I've just spent 10 days traveling in the Middle East and speaking to leaders there, all of which has made one thing clearer to me than ever: While we are naturally focused on Iraq, a larger war is emerging. On one side are extremists and terrorists led and sponsored by Iran, on the other moderates and democrats supported by the United States. Iraq is the most deadly battlefield on which that conflict is being fought. How we end the struggle there will affect not only the region but the worldwide war against the extremists who attacked us on Sept. 11, 2001.

Because of the bravery of many Iraqi and coalition military personnel and the recent coming together of moderate political forces in Baghdad, the war is winnable. We and our Iraqi allies must do what is necessary to win it.

Here we have the opinion of someone who has been to the area and shares his beliefs on what we should do. Is he a paid spokesman? Doubtful. Therefore, I believe we should do our best at finding out the facts of the situation and make and educated decision as American citizens and have our voices heard. Let's get down to the truth ATS. Conspiracy or Not?

Found this I thought it is similar to the first post and says some things no one wants to hear.

WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- No sooner did the United States invade Iraq in March 2003 than Iran poured hundreds of agents into Iraq to aid the majority Shiites in consolidating a sudden geopolitical bonus -- majority control (60 percent) over the minority Sunnis (20 percent) that had kept them in vassalage for generations. This was payback time.

Before the end of 2003, the Jordanian intelligence service informed the CIA that 'several hundred thousand had come across the (900-mile-long) Iranian border, including Iraqi Shiite refugees who had escaped when Saddam attacked Iran in 1980 (a war that lasted eight years with about one million killed on both sides). Thus, several hundred Iranian Revolutionary Guards came in and scattered to major cities to train volunteers for the two principal Shiite militia -- the Mahdi army and Badr organization.

Almost four years later every major power and smaller regional players are involved in Iraq, stirring their own brew to be consumed after the United States leaves Iraq. When President Bush says, 'we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq,' he knows this campaign cannot be confined to Iraq. The challenge, says Bush, 'is playing out across the broader Middle East' and 'it is the decisive ideological struggle of our time.' Clearly, this cannot be undertaken without going outside Iraq to disrupt the privileged sanctuaries of self-avowed enemies.

You need to ask Mr. Lieberman which Middle Eastern countries/leaders he spent his time in for those 10 days to know the Middle East so well. My guess..Iraq (The American side) and Israel. The Middle East is a bit bigger then that for him to have an idea of whats going on.

Ask yourself this, we have been there since 2003, and its now 2007 , Israel has been clamouring for an attack on Iran for the majority of that time, and now all of a sudden the war in Iraq is a mistake and its actually Iran this whole time thats supplying Iraq (They just conveniently figured this revelation out now) and all of a sudden everything is Iran and Syria with some Hizbollah thrown in for good measure.

Either our intelligence even after 9-11 sucks extra big time, we have wasted billions for nothing AND we are in deep trouble or someone is playing with our heads trying to get us to do their dirty work. I don't think our intelligence is messed up that badly that it took us all this long to figure it out, so I go with the latter choice of someone messing with our heads.

The CIA is saying that Iran won't have any nuclear weapons until at least 10 more years, the IAEA is saying the same thing... I hope that if the US attacks Iran, the US population march on Washington peacefully but bring the Bush admnistration to justice.

Lieberman should have stayed home and saved us the tax dollars. His position after this boondoggle is the same as his position before the boondoggle. This guy has taken so much money from AIPAC that he should be required to register as a foreign lobbyist.
