When you consider the actual facts behind the War on Terror, then it's clear that the only closed-minded, prejudiced hatemongers in America are the left-wing liberals.
Nate, I know how you feel about GWB. The thing for me regarding him and Iraq, and I was with him initially going in because I "believed" what my president was saying at the time, is he should have gone full force at Afghanistan and Osama Bin Laden first. I thought, well, if we're going to war (with Iraq) there must
be a legitimate reason he would put our men and women in harm's way. I just don't like how it all "began" as far as Iraq.
There was a reason why Bush Sr. didn't go in during the first Gulf war (which me and a lot of people didn't understand at the time, but do now). The same reason, I feel, that none of the other countries surrounding Saddam Hussein had never taken him out. I just felt it would have been better if one of those countries over there had taken him out, but that might have led us into war over there too.
I don't think we will ever get out of there completely now and I absolutely hate what it's doing to our men and women (physically and mentally) who are coming back from there.
