Yeah, they want Islam to be a major part of the new constitution.
Iraq was one of the few secular rulerships in the ME. But hey, now they're going to be a theocracy. Woohoo!
No one with any brain is saying that. I'll ignore your extremists if you ignore mine.
Well, I think the punishment handed out to the perpetrators was good but then you get groups like the ACLU wanting to release all of the prisoner abuse pictures, even after the scandal was exposed. I think we need a transparent society so things like that don't happen, but wanting to release all of the pictures now will just ........ more people off, and get more people killed. People were killed when Newsweek released allegations (which ultimately were true, but not verified at the time) about Quran abuse, and riots got plenty of innocent people killed...can you imagine what releasing all of the prisoner abuse photos would do? We want to get the job done in Iraq and get the hell out.
Why, precisely? We captured them so we can do whatever we want to them, including beating, raping, and killing them?
I'm not going to deny that things like that don't happen, but at the same time if I ever become the CEO of my own company I'd better be able to afford a jet. But, the point I was trying to make is that no democrat (Ted Kennedy, Clintons) really seems able to make benefits such as healthcare affordable by social programs, and the only reason I can get health insurance is because private business decides to pay for it ... then I hear about how cold and evil the corporations are. My reoccuring theme here is that the left offers up a lot of criticisms without real solutions (idealistic vs realistic).
Yeah, I know that my company said "Hey, you guys are going to pay lower premiums now that we pay less taxes!". They sure as hell didn't go out and buy a private jet. Wait, that's exactly what happened.
I agree with almost all of the legitimate faults to at least some extent (WMD error, prisoner abuse, the possibility that WMDs wasn't the only reason for going into Iraq), and I still voted for Bush because the left didn't offer up any better, real solutions.
Someone has to do it; you sure as hell aren't acknowledging the faults when they become apparent.
Congress (including John Kerry) voted to hand war authority over to George Bush.
if Iraq is a war like Bush says, then where is Congress' approval
