Now on topic... I don't support the war, and i dont support the troops. When the man i voted into presidency betrayed my trust and backstabbed a nation who needed a straight shooting leader, i ended my love for the government. I love my country, but our government doesnt make the country. The citizens do. We are the backbone of this country, and we are all family. Every man woman and child who calls themselves a US citizen is my family. The good and the bad, differences and similarities, we are all family. The government who swore to protect this family has betrayed our trust. The troops don't serve me and my family, the us citizens of this great country, they serve the government. Who do you think would enforce martial law if it was ever to be declared? These people arent defending the constitution, they are just doing what the leader tells them, and they do so willingly, knowing full well what side they chose, and it wasnt the side of the people.

The project for a new american century's agenda is total global econmic domination by the turn of the next century. These people have a 100 year plan to globalize the world economy and want america to control it. Their plan is and always has been to overthrow sadam husein because iraq is the perfect stagin area for america to control the middle east. It has a secure location to build a naval base and access to several surounding countries. Their goal is to make all the middle eastern countries fall in line so that america has the final say over distribution of oil, not to america itself for greed purpose, but because they want america to control the global economy

As many iraq/9-11 posts and threads that have been on here i am really surprised none of you have linked up the PNAC information. I'm not a 9/11 "truther" or whatever. I dont believe the government conspired to do it. I believe we should be in afghanistan looking for the people responsible for who did do it. I do not agree with the war with iraq. I was like a lot of you who think that we went there for the oil, but facts are as such. The oil fields are stabilized and some are operational. The oil rigs and reconstruction operation is being done by hailburton and company as you may be aware, but the oil that is being drawn from those fields are being sold elsewhere, to places like india and china and not being sold to the US. If you head over and look at the PNAC site and the wiki on the PNAC is reads like a hollywood NWO/illuminati movie plot. Except these are real people.

9/11 had NOTHING to do with Iraq for the millionth time!

Iraq just made damn sure it WILL happen again given a chance!

Pulling out wouldn't make another 9/11 happen and if you think that you are ignorant.

9/11 happened because of lack of action with intelligence that the US was given about that attack. Not only our intelligence but warnings from many, many other countries. Other attacks planned for the US during Clinton were squashed and was made public.

Information was ignored and not dealt with by this administration, and no of course I do not believe they orchestrated it. I do believe they had ideas that something in the near future was going to be put in action and they failed to carry out the necessary precautions and defense. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind.

chris, you are ignorant. Ending the war would consist of more than just one day the president taking out every soldier at once.

If you want to watch something interesting about where we got to where we are watch this.


It is NOT conspiracy and if you want, jump to the second half of it to see how we let Osama go and then head over to Iraq.

Its just appalling.

The movie is all fact based, its a time line of what went on after 911. Please everyone, educate yourself.

He has every right to complain about what happened to him because he was lied to when he signed up. He thought he was going in for a noble cause and now knows it was for nothing. Imagine how he must feel, I don't even think I can comprehend the anger and the disappointment he must have.

Funny, you ask the people in Iraq if they knew back then what this would be like, they'd much rather have Sadam in power.

They said what is going on there now if far, far worse and it doesn't look like its going to be getting any better.

When someone kidnaps their sons or husbands the women joke and say to their neighbors, "Oh, yes, well that's the democracy working"

The conditions over there are HORRIFIC, please go out and listen to the people of that country and not just what you hear from American television and politicans. Most of them would rather have Sadam back.

I watched this show on Iraqi women and they were Dr.'s, Civil Engineers and Pharmacists who were very educated that came to the US to speak to people about what it is really like and that they want us to leave. Most of them when they returned to Iraq had to leave because they were put on a death list and lost family members because of it.

Really sad stuff.

"Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for." - General Norman Schwarzkopf.

I might be joining the US Marines. Both because I want to serve and because I believe that the best way to end a war, is to actually finish fighting it.

LOl butters... tisk tisk now. You caliming you have "been there" and expecting us to believe you is like me claiming I have been there and expecting the same. By the way... my claim is I have been there a few times now as well as other "places"... but you probably won't believe me because how oh how can I possibly call a "patriot" a crybaby when he lost his arm "for his country". Grow up little boy.

God I hate America and Americans. I was going to respond to individual posts as being moronic chest thumping propaganda - adled retarded f*ckers, but there are just too many to cope with.....you think this guy is a loser for believing his government and going to war??? You think he's a crybaby??? PUT ON A PACK AND PICK UP A RIFLE! If you're so tough, go ahed and do it! What the hell do you know about how vets feel unless you are one? Thanks to MY govenment believeing everything YOUR government says, I know just how this poor bugger feels. And anyone who shows disrespect for this man should feel SHAME. Shame, shame, shame.

The point is, America made Iraq what it was. America helped Saddam gain power in the 80s. Now a new generation is paying for that arrogance and breeding a new world of misery.

So..when you talk freedom, where do we stop? Iraq has oil, something we are willingly taking as the spoils of war! Sp do we continue to police the world? What about Dafur? What about Rober Mugabe and Africa? What about North Korea and Kim Jong-il? Hell..millions ofNorth Koreans have died under that madman!

If we justify Iraqm then we must be prapred to continue to remove the madmen from the world. That would be a noble and worthy cause...but thats not going to happen is it. Iraq had oil..and that is the sole reason we are there. To claim otherwise is ignorace. Make your choice!

I am sure the military personnel carpet bombing Japan during the World War knew they were killing innocent civilians too. We are not stupid. And yet it was still war and war exacts a price. We share the burden of command. So don't call me ignorant sir.
Japan attacked America, dragging America into the war...and I for one am thankfull for all those men who made those bad decisions that had to be made. Iraq is diffrent. Iraq was attacked for it's oil. Dont claim it was WMDS! The U.N inspectors found NO evidence to support their where any. America attacked on suspect intelligence. We knew it was suspect, yet we, the UK followed! I don't dispute Saddam was evil but he had NO links to Al-Quedia no matter what CrakrJak is claiming..Hell Bin, Laden openly called for his death at one point. >>>>>
