But I Think the People Who Vot...

But I think the people who voted him in were bigger idiots.  I don't blame him for the war. He had nothing else he could do at the time.  I don't like the war and I wish it was over and that our men and women all came home safe.  I don't support Bush  but I do support our men and women they are all heros.

I don't like the war either. All of those soldiers didn't deserve to die. It's so sad.

"I don't support Bush but I do support our men and women they are all heros"<br />

Although I fully understand the heart put into this statement, as well as the intentions of the person writing it... for having once worn a uniform myself, I hate to break the news to you that, statistically speaking, the following is almost the only sure things we can safely state: NOT all people involved are heros. <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
The truth is that some of the 130,000 men and women deployed are there because they believed in doing something that carried a deep meaning to them, and some of them are just there doing a job they chose for all sorts of reasons (some to do with patriotism, and some more practical - the military is and has always been a very good way to get a good education for young people without the financial backing to finance one). Some of these people are fantastic human beings that I'd be proud to call friends, and some of them are the same people that would rightly prompt anyone to cross to the other side of the street if you met them on a dark evening in an unknown neighborhood. <br />

My point is that wearing a uniform (for all sorts of reasons) does not change the nature of the people wearing it, and I hate the romantic blanket that clutters people's ability to express nuanced opinions.

Again I have to ask WHY are our troops even still there?THere is a better choice in that...I agree that it started off for ok reasons, I understand that...but now?<br />
Those bombings...yeah chances are that they are because those people who live there are sick of our troops! I don't claim to be knowledgable in polotics or war....but doesn't Bush think that he is creating an enemy out of those people that were once almost happy with the way "freedom" happened for them? Our troops have overstayed their "welcome" time to come home! Feel so sorry for the families out there without moms and dads, sisters and brothers....they should be home. I guess I just don't understand why our troops are still over there at all, seems to me there is not much they can do except create problems and unease in not one but two countries.<br />
At least in the next election we HAVE to elect a new pres.

I must disagree with the statement, "He had nothing else he could do at the time." <br />
I'm not claiming to have the answers, but if we are going to feel threatened by a middle eastern nation, Iran is a much larger threat than Iraq ever was.<br />
<br />
It is impossible to single out a particular nation to blame for Al Qaeda and the terrorist threat, but I think there is much more evidence against Iraq in this regard and we know for a fact that they have nuclear capability. This coupled with the fact their country's leadership is irrational and very anti-american, makes them extremely dangerous.
