Nothing is perfect. I am pleased we are fighting terrorism. Clinton
was happy to be happy. Didn't stick his neck out and relied on others
to stick their neck out and so the tough jobs didn't get done under
clinton.

The only fight against terrorism that's working is one that you cannot see.
It's not in the news.

This statement infers President Bush's plan to keep the terrorists at
bay from attacking America is working. I'm glad you recognize he has
protected America much better than President Clinton ever did.

Unfortunately there will never be a change in attitude amongst those
people unless entire generations are wiped out. Maybe education will
help but it will be a long process taking decades (as President Bush
warned us) that Americans don't have the stomach for. If it doesn't
fit into a thirty or sixty minute episode we lose interest and reach
for the clicker to change the channel.

I'd like to see a modern equivalent of the WWII victory garden effort, but
with gasoline. If Americans (theoretically) approve of a pointless war to
"git them nasty terrorists", you'd think we could manage to direct some of
that (theoretical) anger toward each of us driving 20% less each week. Too
bad the last 5 presidents have been so happy to blow the Saudis, rather than
spank them for their part in this mess. Otherwise, one of them might have
the balls to say "Look - money talks, but the Saudis don't believe we have
the gumption to hit them in the pocket book. What do YOU all think?"

I think the average American who has no family in the military has not
experienced any difficulty or change of lifestyle, no sacrifices
whatsoever, in this war. It may be a good idea to enforce rationing to
give people a taste of what will happen if we lose in Iraq. Supporting
the troops requires much more than putting a sticker on your back
bumper.

Are you on some sort of medication? What kind of rationing will be likely if
we lose in Iraq?

Petroleum products. Iran will own some 20% of the world's oil
reserves, they will manipulate all the European countries into giving
them technology. They will also have created nuclear weapons and
finally they will be training and supplying terrorists with impunity
since no one will be able do anything about it.

I have mentioned all this before in my conversations with DH. It's
really not that difficult to see what will happen if we leave Iraq.

Bush said that when there is "success" in Iraq (whatever that means), we
would leave. Therefore, he believes that at some point, we will leave. When
that happens, the result will be the same as if we left now, since the Iraqi
army apparently has no interest in defending the country.

Their soldiers get one week of leave per month to bring their pay home to
their families. Many never return. You call that an army?

Your cavalier attitude regarding terrorists. "git them nasty
terrorists", is appalling. It is apparent your innocent family members
weren't on one of the 9/11 planes or in either WTC building on 9/11, nor
do you show any compassion for the ones that were caught by the
terrorists that fateful day.
