    How viable is Kerry's exit strategy?

    We did find Terrorists camps in Iraq and there is the question of Salman Pak. Also I think it's odd that we have radial terrorist groups in Iraq now, especially Al Qaeda who claimed to have no ties with Iraq. Strange.

    Homeland Security: A Bad Joke

    What I'm saying is that I don't feel it's wise for a person who gets worldwide attention to be continually airing potential security weaknesses to the world when we know Terrorists are listening.

    Actually many people are not aware that we did not stop looking for Osama, the hunt continues..even while we overthrew Saddam.. more misinformation. Of course where and how we are looking for Osama should not be broadcast all over the world, that's kind of aiding his escape I would imagine.. I've read that Osama does not stay in one place very long.

    The war in Iraq an outright "disaster."

    wow, movalong.. your post is full of misinformation, for instance did you know that we haven't used hardly any money for Iraq yet, some $$ was diverted to Afghanistan. Bush declared end of the war? He did declare one mission was accomplished and that was overthrowing Baghdad I believe. We've alientated other countries? Didn't some other countries kind of alienate themselves by first voting to use force against Saddam and then backing out? That was their choice. I don't care to discuss Daddy Bush as you call him, he is a previous President and does deserve some respect I will say that. Why can't Presidents be called by their proper names on this forum, aren't we all adults here?
  5. I beg to differ, I've heard that we are "going it alone" in Iraq many times off the BB, by candidates, several Democrats use that phrase as if it were written on a 3x5 card. So I think that many people actually think/believe we are "going it alone". Which I feel is kind of an insult to the countries who I thought were helping us. If I did not have computer access and only relied on television I would probably believe that we were "going it alone".

    And I've spoke to many people who fear Kerry as President would be a much worse course so I think the country is very much divided as we were in 2000. I guess we'll know on November 2nd. Good luck to you and your candidate :)

    Our work: stability, reconstruction, assuring that the election takes place in January, training Iraqi police forces. We liberated Iraq from a horrible dictator and regime. You may recall hearing about mass graves, torture chambers, Iraqi citizens hands, feet, tongues cut off by the regime. Saddam did not disperse UN food for women and children.. warehouses filled with UN food found by our troops. Much of Iraq did not have water and electricity while Saddam had many palaces a million dollar bunker..etc.. you may also recall that Iraqi's who fled Iraq throughout the years pleaded with our administration to please do something, every other country turned their backs. Also Saddam did not comply with weapons inspections for several years and the sanctions hurt the Iraqi people, not Saddam. Well if you go back to as early as 1995 or sooner you will see many quotes by high officials stating that Saddam was a threat and needed to be dealt with. When that time came RE: Resolution 1441 which stated that "force would be used against Saddam" countries voted to use force but many backed out..ie.. France, Germany and Russia. Some people thought that those countries were owed debts by Saddam so they didn't want to jeopardize money that was owed to them, or perhaps those countries were getting kick backs from the Oil-for-Food scandal which the UN is now investigating so there is really more to why we don't have large allies counties helping us in Iraq. Personally I like to think that the "oil" is for the Iraqi's, as President Bush stated many times, "it is their oil"

    Iraq was doomed a "Quagmire" before the first strike on Baghdad. If that's not partisan I don't know what is. :wink2:
  9. Evidently.. Zawahri didn't receive the memo that we have no allies..at least that's what I'm hearing.

    Homeland Security: A Bad Joke

    I'm not talking/writing about wee little secrets on this BB.. I was referring to Kerry repeatedly announcing to the world which includes terrorists with big ears.. that our ports are not secured.. instead of actually going to the proper authorities who can and probably are doing something about it.. Um.. I never said it was all Kerry's fault but he is aiding , even last Thursday during the debate which probably received world wide attention.. Kerry mentioned again that our ports are not protected.. what else would he like to publicly state to the world and the terrorists to make their job a little easier? sigh..
  11. I have read today that the voice is authentic, I'll try to find the link. Zawahri actually believes that the US has allies?

    Homeland Security: A Bad Joke

    Of course they know.. why don't we tell them about all of our other problems while we are at it.. I think it's very dangerous to keep repeating our weaknesses.. especially when the world is listening..let's go to the proper channels and fix the problem. Too late now we have a spokesperson who will remind the terrorists of our weaknesses.

    Homeland Security: A Bad Joke

    Um yah.. sending a discrete memo would be an appropriate 1st step and then follow up on the memo instead of blabbing to the world especially terrorist/radial world groups.. "hey, our ports aren't protected.. come on over".. I'ts one thing to criticize ones own countries weaknesses, but yet another to open the door for them.

    Actually ya know that experts tell us that there are at least 60 osama wannabees out there so taking # 1 osama out will not solve the problem.
