I'm sick of anti-bush talk. Guess what..... we are in a war..... so if you know what is best for this country and for it's people, then support your
president at a time like this.............
Bush had his chance. I support the war on terrorism, I support the war in Iraq, I do not support Bush, and here is why. We had a chance to do so much
good in Afghanistan, Once the Taliban was out, we should have swarmed the country with food and aid. The war was only 10% of the battle, the rest
comes in the aftermath with rebuilding and assisting the people (Bomb them with wheat and rice). We didnt do all we could have, because.....
We invaded Iraq. Not a bad move, I agree on us being there, but....Bush didnt plan very well, didnt think out everything, and didnt have a post war
plan. Now we are stuck there, slowly being picked off. There were many mistakes made in this war, and we are now paying the price in blood and in
this war will turn into a vietnam if we withdraw....... because every single family that was pro us will be slaughtered.............. If you value
life, im talkin both American and Iraqi.... then you better support bush. All the more cr ap you talk about him... the more hope you give for the
terrorists that hate you..
We cant withdraw, I agree, to do so will to be to turn our backs and run. This will hurt the Iraqi people and us in the long run. But again, IMO, Bush
has failed to plan out any sort of post war plan that is effective. And with the recent abuse scandle with the prisons, we took a very very serious
blow, one that may in the end cost us many many more lives, and a lot of trust on the behalf of the Iraqi people and the Arab states in general, it
made everything a heck of a lot worse. It could possible be something that in the end may cost us the war in Iraq. You cant win over the hearts and
minds of people this way.
I dont like Kerry either, but in all honesty, Bush had his shot, and did very well at the start, but as things dragged on and his policies started to
show, or rather lack of, I began to see that he isn't the man for the job.
At this point and time, I am more than willing to give Kerry the chance to fix Bush's mess.
This is just my opinion on the matter.
I will always support the men in the field, they need our support, but to say and imply that not supporting Bush is bad for the country is just false.
Its an election year, we should support who we think is right for this country, I dont like any of the candidates, but I don't want to keep a man in
office who cannot plan long term.
And thats just about the war, a lot of other things that I dont like about Bush, his outsourcing of jobs is bad too.
And his smirk...blah...drives me nuts!
I am an AOTB...Anyone Other Than Bush....Kerry will get my vote this year.
