    I'm sorry. I don't seem to recall you calling for a pre-9-11 invasion of Afghanistan. Please cite.

    if you weren't *****ing about bush, it would be kerry..... this conversation is useless. we've made a huge advance in the country of iraq, if that's not good then you don't deserve your freedom that i served 8.5 years to preserve. there are more colors that black and white. mission accomplishment comes first, troop welfare comes second. BUT, it's your freedom to complain about what i've just said. deal with it.

    I think the question is 1) how much and 2) is it worth it?

    Think about this for a second...if someone disagrees with your assessment of 'good' then they aren't worthy of your sacrifice? Did you go into the military with this requirement? I doubt it...kind of silly to require it afer the fact.

    It appears that we can deal with it just fine. You find it undeserving but then acknowledge that its our freedom to complain (appears a little contradictory??)

    .
    .
    .
    "One of the more intriguing things that Bush was told during the briefing was that the few credible reports of contacts between Iraq and Al Qaeda involved attempts by Saddam Hussein to monitor the terrorist group. Saddam viewed Al Qaeda as well as other theocratic radical Islamist organizations as a potential threat to his secular regime. At one point, analysts believed, Saddam considered infiltrating the ranks of Al Qaeda with Iraqi nationals or even Iraqi intelligence operatives to learn more about its inner workings, according to records and sources."



    Oh my!
    Da, why does this suprise you? You and the rest of the world already know that he does not read his PDBs(See Aug. 6 2001 PDB).

    I respect your sevice but your statement that someone doesn't deserve their freedom because they don't support Bush's war, is just vulgar.

    Well said.

    I may not agree with what someone says, what they believe, or how they voice their disagreement (IE protest in front of Army Hospital) BUT, I served over 20 years (not 8 1/2) to protect their right to voice their opinon.
