I am still trying to get an entire post printed.  Hope this workd


It is critical that this discussion continue simply because it is the most important issue affecting peace in this world.   

I am not comfortable with this new format, but will try as best I can. 

Foda is right in his observations that we are making progress in defeating alQaeda in Iraq.  I see it as achieving a victory for the Iraq people and a tribute to the US

NJLee... are you using something from the alt-code character set?  Or doing a copy paste from another program (like Word or Notepad)?  This sometimes is causing problems and truncating the posts.  The system, as of now, is not accepting alt-code and is hanging up on some punctuation when copied.  It's a pain in the butt, but replace your punctuation in the reply box when doing a copy/paste.  I've found that allows the post to go on through.

Foda is right in his observations that we are making progress in defeating alQaeda in Iraq.  I see it as achieving a victory for the Iraq people and a tribute to the US  Military and our political leadership.  Let us look forward rather than look backward and playing the blame American First game.

stitch (there I tried to bold to show respect) is more measured in her reaction and I appreciate that.  There is real hope today, and if we are constructive in supporting the efforts in Iraq,  we will be much closer to achieving some sort of peace in Iraq, than if we continue to beat up on President Bush and the US.

But is the game plan ever to leave Iraq in the near future?  Three of the leading dem candidates will not promise to get out of Iraq by 2013!  Bush says the troops will be there probably even longer.  Apparently we are going to establish a "protectorate" over Iraq -- a new Roosevelt corollary to a new Monroe doctrine--we have the right everywhere to protect our source of oil!

The US Embassy "over there" is going to be the biggest in the world, bigger than the Vatican, complete with restaurants, movie theatres, olympic-sized swimming pool, and the rest--in other words, a city in itself.   American troops and/or contractors will be there for the foreseeable future, to protect the American City in the heart of Mesopotamia.

The only "plan" is to get the Iraqi's to accept the American City in their midst and stop resisting.   I think the Democratic candidates are talking about this "plan" when they say "we'll be there beyond 2013." 

They have a different definition of "war" or "occupation" than some of us do, and are, therefore, taliking about something else entirely when they say they're going to end the war on Iraq.

don't you think that it is important to secure Iraq's oil resources.  at $86.OO Barrel it is even more imporant.  All the candidates appreciate the need for US troops in Iraq for the long pull.  Remember how long we remained in Germany, Japan, etc. and the benefits to the US and the world community for our continued presence.

I hope you realize that we have an important role to play even in areas not related to oil.

The plan that Republicans like me have been advocating is one of victory.  That seems to be happening and we should celebrate.

The Dems have abandoned their "retreat and defeat" plan as I am sure you have noticed.  Do you think they should revive it?
