As for teh US being the threat to World Peace. We Did NOT Start this, but we wil finish it. THose who died on 9/11 will be avenged, and Muslim extremism must be defeated. Here, in Iraq, and Isreal.
Amount killed on Sept. 11:  Around 3k

Amount of Iraqi civillians killed during fighting:  5k

Sounds like vengance to me. :P

The thing is, the UN gives equal voice to all, because THAT'S WHAT IT"S DESIGNED FOR!  Every nation gets it's say.  Just because you're bigger and stronger doesnt mean you should own the world.

AND YOU DID START IT!! Where did Sadaam Huessien invade now?  Where?  Oh yeah, nowhere!

Communist countries are usually considered "2nd World," becuase of the 1st world military and 3rd world living standard.

And where is the evidence of the al-Quada connection?   Where is ANY evidence?  Nowhere!

The bottom line is it had to be done, and the world will be better place once Iraq is democtorized and rebuilt, and President Bush will be remebered as one of the gresats world leaders ever.
Yeah, sure, that's why the economies so great, and soon gonna have the FBI in on investigating your library books and telephone calls. :P

Any listen to the Iraqis:  THEY DON"T WANT US STYLE DEMOCRACY!  Look what happened in Iran!  They hated the Shah.

And, about the US being in support of democracy, don't they support China, the number one executioner on the planet?  What about Egypt, ruled by an iron fist?  Most of the countries the US supports are dictatorships.

The US doesnt' care about the "Freedom", they care about the money and the resources.

I care what the French think.  They are a world power, and should be heard as such.

The UN is a joke they give equal voice to evil dicatorrs. The UN is irrelevant they help nobody. They are run by a bunch of jelly spined Europeans, and 3rd World Communist. Saddam had 12 years to let inspectaors and he didn't. For once we have a preisdent that takes America role as a Super Power seriously.

that's the same type of ignorant thought process that's running our country right now. our president (and i use that term loosely) is more concerned with building his more than $100 million campaign fund than getting the troops out of iraq.

If we allowed the UN to handle everything the Taliban would still be in Afganhanistan and Saddam will still be murdering his own people and Al Queda would have more power, by the fact we did nothing.

as if the taliban still isn't in afghanistan, please. get real, look at the facts. wasn't saddam a convenient way to avert the nation's eyes away from the fact that we couldn't find bin laden. and we still haven't found saddam. ridiculous. if we are such a power, with all the resources we have, why hasn't anything of note been done. again, ridiculous.

Its not for Oil if it was for Oil we would have never give Kuwait their oil back, thats the go to line all left wingers use.

again, another ridiculous statement that could have been taken straight out of sean hannity's mouth. i don't consider myself a conservative or a liberal, i consider myself a realist. with that, i think it's just plain stupid to say 'it's not for the oil'.

ANd Finally how many troops have died 250? or something not to say it is not tragic, but this IS a WAR people die in war, and things are getting better. The area where all the attacks are is not that big the rest of the country is under our control.

tell that to the families that lost loved ones. war is a harsh and unnatural progression of events. families suffer and soldiers die, that's the reality, but it doesn't make it any better. i hope george can sleep at night, i sure have trouble sleeping, but maybe it's because i actually care about PEOPLE and not being powerful.

President Bush will be remebered as one of the gresats world leaders ever.

you should go on the road with that routine, that's funny stuff.

IM not Jewish, but may Sharon and the rest of the Isaraleis continue to show strength and defeat the PLO, as far as Im concerned there is no need for a Palistain State, as long as tehy keep blowing up people for being Jewish.

and while we're at it, let's stop alienating people for being whatever ethnicity they are, whether they be jewish, middle eastern, asian, african, hispanic, etc. alienating arabs smacks of what hitler and the ss did with the jews. think about that. i know that it was SOME arabs that caused 9/11, but they are a minute portion of the whole arab people. people need compassion in today's world, not a bunch of screaming madmen making the calls for everyone else.

i'll get off the box now.

If Howard Dean or one of the 9 Democrats Win the US will be gone by 2020 will be a Socialist Counrty our freedoms as we know them will be gone.

Bush is the last hope for democracy and America after what Clinton and his wife Lady MacBeth did. Its sad to see that after September 11th everyone is falling back into their medi induced coma.

You can't listen to CNN or the rest of the main stream media they are part of the conspriacay. Read books liek Bias, Coloring the News, and Slander tehy tell you how the media slants thinsg to fit their veiws. Things in Iraq are not as bad as it is being reported.

If the Dmeocrats win we will have higher taxes, less security, more reguilation and governemnt will want to regulate every move we make every bretah we take. They want Nation Deits they want to tax everything. They want to open the door for lawsuits against McDonalds for making people fat.  

All you have to do is look at Claifronia. Look at Grey Davis tahts what that party stands for.

they want us to surrender our soverenty to teh world court, the UN< and Keoyot. Keoyot is ever signed the US economy will collapse and we will have bread lines.

The democrats are controlled by special intrest who just want tos care you. THere is no such thing as human created global warming, buyt teh enviromental loby has people petrified.

All in their long term goal control of everyones lives.

You cant listen to it its all lies. Maybe Bush aint perfect but he has the best intrest for this country in mind, and if that clashes with the world too bad.

If not for the US this world would be an even greater mess. We come to the resue every flood, earthquake and volcano. We are now trying to cure Africa of AIDS, we try to even feed the starving and we never take over where we go, if tahts a threat to peace fine. The only reason we are a threat is becuase teh world yearns to be free and taht scares all these tin horned dictators in these 3rd world banana republics.

Mayeb I sound arrogant and I'm sorry but Im sick and tired of these left wingers poising the waters. We defeated the Soviet UNion, but we did not defeat Solicisim and Communism they are now in disguise taking over the democrtic party Just look at the 9 candiates, if any win we are in trouble.

Have you ever heard of Wahabisim(Sp?)

Its a sect a large sect of the Islam belief that believes that all non believers in the Koran must be killed viloently.

Wahabism is the largest growning religous sect ion teh world when they say holy war they mean it and unless these people are destoryed we will be destroyed.

Their whole religon (the whabies) is violence and death. I dont know about you but I dont think they can be reasoned with. You cant reason with them you cant reach out your had to them becuse they will cut it off.

If you show them who is boss that is teh only way to defeat this evil religon.

THere are othe sects of ISlam taht are quite idfferent but sects liek teh whabies can never be treated as a begin threat any one willing to kill themseleves to kill you must be dealt with in a vilonet way.

Peace and freedom come and a oprice and that price is and always has been war.

Perhaps we shoudl stop this thread after this  I said my peace and you said yours.

A "conspiracy!" WOW! That's really sane thinking! I BET THEY"RE ALL COMING TO GET YOU!

And because they allow free medical care, they're gonna take away all your rights!

And the United States is gonna get taken over by the UN and world court! Oh no!

What a load of horses--t.

Canada has a socialist medical system. So does Britain, Australia, continental Europe, Scanadanavia, et al. And they're allowed free speech! They're allowed all their rights! Just because you think the US is #1 doesn't mean other people around the world don't have the same rights.

Clinton is, in my mind, with Trudeau as the two most important leaders of the last 30 years. And what's with the dissing of Hillary Clinton? Threatened by a woman having a bit of power?

If you want a war, get off your ass and fight it yourself. Then you'll see how misguided Bush is.

Your arrgoence astounds me.

And I'll end it here.

All of this idea of allowing dicatators to get away with their crimes and believing them at face value, should go back and look at Nevell Chamberlain. Thank god Bush is more Curchill then Chamberlian.

Chamberlain could have stopped Hittler he didn't, because he gave into his demands beliving the peace means teh absence of conflict.

IM not Jewish, but may Sharon and the rest of the Isaraleis continue to show strength and defeat the PLO, as far as Im concerned there is no need for a Palistain State, as long as tehy keep blowing up people for being Jewish.

I could spend hours responding to some of the b*ll:censored: that has been posted on this topis, but I will restrain my comments to these two topics.

1 Chamberlain was an honourable man, he judged that Britain did not have the military strength to take on Hitler (a perfectly correct judgement BTW). He did not take Hitler at his wordm, which is why Britain began planning for a war with Germany long before 1939. (also I don't recall FDR jumping into a wart with Hitler at the earliest opportunity, and of course there were all those Republicans in the US campaigning to keep the US out of the war altogether, until Pearl Harbor)

Perhaps a few more world leaders should take a few lessons from  WW1 rather than WW2, and only go to war when it really is the last resort rather than a politically motivated act, aimed at showing some kind of masculine bravado to the world. (and yes that was a dig at the President of the USA)

2. Sharon is amongst the biggest threats to world peace alive right now.  He has continued to make the middle east an unstable area, by refusing to treat the PLO, and Yasser Arafat with any respect, (and before anyone mentions how many deaths Arafat is responsible for, go and check on former General Sharon's record on that score) and therefore not giving more militant Palestinian supporters any option but to use violence to answer the state terrorism perpetrated by then Israeli Army against Paletinians in the occupied terrotories.

Let's remember that the soldiers sign up to be in the military, and they know the risk. No one is drafted in. Now I don't want loss of US lives, but they are the ones who signed up to risk thier lives. I find them brave and honorable and the biggest heros on earth for protecting the US.

Now I belive a leader of the Country should be concerened with thier country first and foremost and concerened with the rest of the world in a distant second. I think the US was to involved in the world. I think the US should be more isolated.

As far the war, I support it. We were attacked. So we went in to defeat them. As far as Iraq, while the rest of the world might not have felt they were at risk, the US did. And like I said the US should be concerned with the US first.

And while Saddam might not have been directly involved in 9-11, i think it's naive to think he never contributed money or other things to Al-Quieda or any other terrorist group. No one can say the world isn't a safer place without Saddam.

And to think any Dictator who gased his own people will do something peacefully is idiotic. They won't listen unless you have a gun to thier head.

And as far as listening to France, and Germany. Thier record in war stands for it self (it's not good). I am reminded by the joke: How many men does it take to defend Paris.......

None, they never tried

At my high school we have assemblies every Tuesday and Friday.  This past Friday Dr. Harold Baumgarten came and spoke to us.  He was a private on Dog Green Sector of Omaha Beach on D-Day. Dog Green was the bloodiest and most important part of the beach.  On this sector was the road designated D-1 which was the only way up the bluffs from the beach and into France.  Dr. Baumgarten was only one of two who survived D-Day from his landing boat.  He wrote a book about his experiences, too.  Name of book slips me at the moment.

 My school, Westminster, always can get some great speakers.  I think it was eight years ago we had Colin Powell speak, maybe five years ago Reverand Desmond Tutu spoke, and maybe four years ago Evander Holyfield spoke.  Reverand Tutu was awesome.
