That is what a "true Conservative" can see, where a faux-conservative, Republican cannot.

YES! Afghanistan and Iraq HAVE become police states, so how do you think the people in those countries like that? How do you think they like having foreigners "policing" their streets, searching their homes, and killing them when they try to rebel against this unwanted "policing" of their streets?
How would you like it if it happened in America? Oh, that's right.....it can't happen in America....because we're such bad asses and people wouldn't dare come here to do that to us.
Iraqi Tribes Strike Back at Insurgents
By John Ward Anderson
Washington Post Foreign Service
Tuesday, March 7, 2006
BAGHDAD, March 6 -- First they killed the chief of the Naim tribe and his son. Then they killed a top tribal sheik who headed the Fallujah city council. Then they assassinated the leader of the al-Jubur tribe.
And now the reported killers of all these men -- al-Qaeda in Iraq, the insurgent group of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- have a powerful new enemy.
Tribal chiefs in Iraqs western Anbar province and in an area near the northern city of Kirkuk, two regions teeming with insurgents, are vowing to strike back at al-Qaeda in Iraq, a Sunni Arab-led group that is waging war against Sunni tribal leaders who are cooperating with the Iraqi government and the U.S. military. Anbar tribes have formed a militia that has killed 20 insurgents from al-Qaeda in Iraq, leaders said.
Separately, more than 300 tribal chiefs, politicians, clerics, security officials and other community leaders met last week in Hawijah, about 35 miles southwest of Kirkuk, and "declared war" on al-Qaeda in Iraq. In a communique, the participants vowed "the shedding of blood" of anyone involved in "sabotage, killings, kidnappings, targeting police and army, attacking the oil and gas pipelines and their transporters, assassinating the religious and tribal figures, technicians, and doctors."

Imagine this is what the rest of the world hopes will eventually happen, if you cannot get your country in order, and soon. We are fed up with your terrorism. China or Russia is not constantly terrorising all around the world, so we would be better off with either one of them taking a little visit and secure the USA as peacekeepers stopping you from sending any more troops out.
Ron Paul is your ONLY hope it seems...
BTW, I do think our military personnel shouldn't be used to police any country, however if we had left right after Saddam was dead he would probably have been replaced by someone as bad or worse from the socialist Baath party.

Perhaps you should watch it and find out.
Perhaps you should summarize the video, instead of posting coy replies.
I do not just click vid links on message boards that do not at least have a summary of the topic.
I reserve the right to decide whether the video is worth my time or not.
Summary would be nice rather than trying to bait readers into clicking randon vid links.
You don't think it's a mistake that China and Russia almost always oppose us on these matters? When they drag their feet on peacekeeping missions like this. They don't care about the Iraq people or the Afghanistan people. They only care so much as it furthers their grip on hte world population and on the economic resources spread therein. They're far nastier than you imagine.

I am quite aware that many people "took up arms" with American troops. I don't need your help in this regard, but thanks anyway.
Why is it America's job to make sure that foreign countries elect "good leaders?" Do other countries occupy our soil to ensure we do the same? Get off your soapbox because I am very tired of hearing this rhetoric from those who keep supporting our need to impose our "views" on other nations with the use of the military.
