We see even in Gulf states they do not have the resources of Iraq. Now we are importing [bottled] water from Saudi Arabia, which doesn’t have any rivers. So Iraq has a lot of potential. Everyone understands that, and politically Iraq is very energetic. People are coming out from decades of dictatorship, and although we have now somehow the liberties that we have, we don’t always use it correctly. But it’s freedom, it’s liberty, and … it’s much better than despotism, than any kind of oppression.

Well, I admire the shoe thrower but I got to say this to the Obama haters in this thread. Obama was the only leading politician that voiced his opposition to the illegal invasion that some say have cost 1 million civilian lives as well as 1000's US troops dead and injured... Impeach Bush!

Words never solved anything.
You are tired of our government then stop belly aching and take action. Do something about it. Don't hide in a corner cheering on those who have a set.
Put up or shut up. Honestly I am getting sick and tired of people on ATS crying "mommy mommy the guberment is bad". I see thread after thread about others standing up and all you guys do is blog about how great that person is.
I'm calling you all out. Do something about the situation you are in or shut the hell up.
If I saw my neighbors lying dead in the street and the leader responsible for their deaths was standing in front of me, I'd have a REALLY hard time keeping my composure.
