How long?

  1. Just curious.

    If you think that we should give diplomacy more time, how long do you think we should wait?

    If you think we should go to war, when? Did we overwait? (is that a word??? )

    Maybe you just don't believe the news about SH is real.....

    Huh from me too?

    I voted . . .. anyone who can have a 15 year old boy crucified on the prison wall gets my vote for getting blown out of this world. Not to mention all the other atrocities he is responsible for.

    Oh sorry I thought we were doing this for the people.
    I think of the young man featured on 60 minutes who was 15 when he was with others who held up a store in Texas. He did not shoot anyone. He was put to death. The governor could have saved his life.

    I'm sorry, but I'm still confused. I was asking about time frames, not about what we do here in this country.

    Was it armed robbery? Was he tried as an Adult? Did he have priors? We don't have all the facts.

    Well, it is way too late for the poor 15 year old Iraqi boy who was nailed to the wall in his jail cell. But I think we can still help the Iraqi citizen's who are left and need our help. I can't help feeling that this is like during World War Two when Hilter was exterminating "the people" and we turned out backs for too long.

    And what in the heck does the kid in Texas involved in a robbery have to do with Iraq? I say again, HUH?

    I don't know the circumstances of the 60 Minutes story but they recently did a story about a local community which was so one-sided that this whole area has been bombarding 60 Minutes with calls and letters and emails.

    Oh sorry for my stupidity.
    I was trying to say that I don't know what the timeline should be. The poll makes no sense to me. Is it a test?
    What is the right answer?

    I can calculate multiple medications at mcg/kg/min and correlate with the PVR, SVR, CO, CI BP and the physical and emotional assessment of the person whose life I am trying to save.
    Unable to plan when to go to war.

    SO SORRY FOR BEING UNABLE TO ANSWER A QUIZ THAT DOES NOT GIVE AN OPTION FOR FLEXIBILITY

    Where did this idea to start a war with Iraq start. I certainly did not hear of it when the inspectors left or were thrown out. Was it a secret?

    We only heard about Afganistan after 9/11.

    What are we doing?
    No mas. Lo siento.

    Not a test, just asking for my fellow Allnurses' opinions on whether this issue should have been brought to a finish already or if we should wait. I keep hearing about how the US should wait until all options are exhausted .... so how long do we wait? There is no correct answer (that I will admit too ).

    As for flexibility, I don't see how I could be any more flexible. Maybe I should have added: I don't care and I don't know anything about this???

    Oh, btw, this started years ago - remember Kuwait and the Gulf War? http://www.indepthinfo.com/iraq/index.shtml

    Hope this clears it up.

    How about just, "I don't have all the facts and cannot predict the future."
    When will all other options be exhausted?
    I do not know!

    Sounds like the Another year or two is the choice best for you.
