To those who still think the war was a real great idea, you should realize that this has brought America into a debt of 3 trillion.
For those who don´t know how much a trillion is, see here:
3 000 000 000 000.

If you round of the population of America to 300 000 000. This would mean that to get out of this debt every person would have to pay 10 000.


Yikes, eh? No wonder American economy is doing so badly.

@elkingo:
no doubt, Saddam Hussein was an evil man. But I`ve travelled in Iraq and Afghanistan before the war and after. And it was safer before and the majority of the people did have a better living than now. That`s the problem we have to face there: maybe in our external point of view we have done good, but they just can`t and won`t see that. We`ve brought just worse...

War is won, but not peace.

George W. Bush, with W. like in Honesty...
or how I like to put it: George Weirdo Bush

seriously: he`s got a brain like a wicked goat, but on the long run we`ll see that he`ll be called one of the greater presidents by our children and grandchildren (and later on) for he has secured the UAss` leading economical role in the world for many more years with his wars (and additionally: the future of his own clan...)

I like Pres. Bush. There is absolutely zero solid clear cut evidence that he has been a bad President, only a bunch of misplaced, liberal douchebag stories. The man is a good guy that stands by his principals. I have not agreed with him on everything, but at least he had a plan and stuck with it which is more than most people can say for themselves. Some of the things that he has done while in office will not be fully realized till 2 decades from now.

But you all will see that. When Obama, the terrorist gets into office like you know he will... because most of you people quite frankly are just plain stupid, you will see why we need people like Bush. Oh no no no... don`t flame me for this post.. I couldn`t care less. You can`t fix you`re kind of stupid so quit trying to debate it away. Just go vote Obama because it`s trendy like all the Dems trained you to do. Viva la CNN...

Last I checked, Saddam had control over the whole Shiite/Sunii (Sp?) issue. Talk about a support pillar going down.

"Heh, thanks the war in Iraq the US economy is declining, your military power is as weak as your dollar, and now you owe a lot of money to communists in China!"

We are making progress in the war.
He took us to the highest GDP ever. The economy is declining because banks are retarded.
China is going to collapse after the Olympics when everyone takes their money out of the stocks their.

Not a huge fan of Bush (though he was better than Gore or Kerry). But either way I probably would have waved back.

"your military power is as weak as your dollar"

What country do you live in? Chances are we could still destroy it if necessary.

You guys can think what you want, fell what you want, and do what you want.. but I made a choice based on morality. We knew ahead of time the war in Iraq would last 10+ years. Why pull out early now? What changed?

I supported, and still support both the Iraq, and Afghanistan wars. Saddam Hussein was an evil man. He was threatening to use WMD. I like to use the analogy of a criminal in a store.. If he has his hand in his coat, and says its a gun, to give him all your money, do you think.. it could be a finger.. I`m not giving him anything. Or do you expect the worst, and retaliate?

Even if there isn`t a gun under his coat, I retaliate and ask questions later. It doesn`t matter if Saddam had WPD, it matters that he said he did, wouldn`t let UN inspectors find out, and he was attacked over it. Saddam tried to bluff the world, and it failed.

Know why most Europeans don`t like the war? They traded with him. Someone made a Hitler reference.. isn`t that about like trading with Hitler?

I concur with what Josh said about troops and war too. I think along the same lines about going to war.. its their job.

And I would`ve waved; possibly in a condescending manner, but waved nonetheless. He`s a funny guy.

"I find it interesting that primtimekin supports bush, and also seems to support hitler... Coincidence?"

Well, Hitler was a leader that warrants positive consideration in some regards.

Fine by me, $5 gas is hard on a kid with a part time job who needs to drive his grandfather to the hospital every week."

We shouldn`t but the Germans should. Hitler was one of the Greatest things to ever occur in Germany. He gave the nation hope after the Treaty of Versailles, he returned Germany to a world power, improved the economy greatly. If you look at what he did for his German people, he was actually great.

I appreciate your trying not to insult me, I really do. Thank you. You are entitled to your opinion too. And I probably will believe differant things when I am older. I suppose I am not currently mature enough to understand the many intricacies of politics, but from what I know, I currently approve. And I know respect is earned, not given. But still, not waving... such a simple thing to do. I think that was uncalled for, even if you don`t agree with his choices.

belive whatever you want to Josh, thats your right, but 10-15 years from now (and I`m not trying to insult you here), your views will be diffrent. Like I said, you have a brain, you make your own decisions but belive me when you should never automatically respect someone just because they have a nice job title. I`m sure the Chairman of Enron had plenty of respect....right untill he shafted millions of people!

Like I said..earned, not given!

*sigh* I can`t believe we are even going to the extreme of Hitler. Of course Hitler should receive no respect, but when a person is higher up than you and haven`t gone around on a terranical rampage of genocide, then I believe they deserve respect. Of course, not if something drastic, such as pedophilia, as mentioned earlier. I mean, a few mistakes and bad choices, the person still warrents respect.

I really think that the president is doing the best job that he can. He is doing much better than I believe you go maddog. The war in Iraq is very controversial, but I think it was the right thing to do. And we do need to slowly wane our troops out, instead of an immediate withdrawal. I believe he is doing a fine job. And yes, soldiers enlisted, and what did they think, that they would never go to war and just get paid? That is what many might have been thinking, but when you enlist, you should be ready to go to war.

Man..who`s brainwashing you all? Learn to think for yourselves ffs. "People above you"? Get a grip..Your teacher is a pedo? Are they still entitled to respect? The policeman who beats you senceless for not pulling your car over fast enough, do they deserve respect?

Think about what your saying! Whilst I have no dispute that a career choice can earn respect, it does not automatically mean the indivdual has earned it. The position of President may well be respect, it dosnt mean the President has to be. They have to earn your respect by doing what is right for you and your country, not what is right for them. You vote them into office to serve you and in such they should respect you, the people!

I`m starting to sound like V now but just think about what your saying. If you automatically switch to "I`ll shut up, respect and agree with you because your the president" then you deserve whatever crap slaps you in the face!

Respect is earned true, but just because you do not agree with decisions does not mean that someone should no longer be entitled to respect. I mean, you may hate you professor for making you write a paper on the migratory patterns of canadian geese, but you still give him your respect simply because he is in a higher position that you and more educated than you. Respect is earned but people who are above you, regardless of what you think, are entitled to it.

Well. He may have made many mistakes and bad choices, but he is still the leader of our country. You don`t have to like him or agree with what he is doing, but you should wave out of respect. He seems like a nice enough guy. Another thing, people can not call him stupid. HE GRADUATED FROM HARVARD for Pete`s sake. I mean, yes I don`t agree with all he does, but this is a respect issue. Something those two fools do not deserve.

Simple answer..NO! Respect is earned, not given. Does a doctor earn your respect, even if he`s incompetent and responsible for much pain and suffering? Do you respect a teacher who is incapable of teaching? Of course not!

Be hopeful Nidonemo. I know you don`t quite care for politics and that`s fine, but I have to say i`m pretty optimistic about the future. And that feeling is not connected to Obama in particular, {although he helps} just the character of the american people. I think things can only change for the better.

Dylan...I could start a humongous political debate...but I have more respect for the forums than that.

I`ll just say...I have a strong dislike for his choices and for what he has said. I do not see him as a fit leader, and I do not see him respecting the very troops he is so ready to dispense.

That may have been edgy and over the line for some, but please, don`t make a big deal out of it. It`s gonna end soon, and we`ll most likely have a brand new leader to whine and bi-tch and moan about.
