    Iraq Conflict Feeds International Terror Threat
    http://www.skyhen.org/Focus/iraqcove...ror_threat.php

    62 percent of Americans thought that the threat of terror would increase if the U.S. takes military action against Iraq.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/...in539846.shtml

    President GHW Bush, 1998;

    "Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nations' mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land."

    Brent Scowcroft, one of the Republican Party’s most respected foreign policy advisors, and national security adviser under President Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush:

    Don't Attack Saddam It would undermine our antiterror efforts. "Our pre-eminent security priority--underscored repeatedly by the president--is the war on terrorism. An attack on Iraq at this time would seriously jeopardize, if not destroy, the global counterterrorist campaign we have undertaken.
    http://www.opinionjournal.com/editor...l?id=110002133

    James Webb, former Sec. of Navy under Ronald Reagan, Decorated Marine Veteran:

    "Do we really want to occupy Iraq for the next 30 years? …In Japan, American occupation forces quickly became 50,000 friends. In Iraq, they would quickly become 50,000 terrorist targets…. Nations such as China can only view the prospect of an American military consumed for the next generation by the turmoil of the Middle East as a glorious windfall."
    http://www.sftt.org/article09302002a.html

    Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni, former Head of Central Command for U.S.:

    "It's pretty interesting that all the generals see it the same way, and all the others who have never fired a shot, and are hot to go to war, see it another…We are about to do something that will ignite a fuse in this region that we will rue the day we ever started."

    Hawks in the Bush administration may be making deadly miscalculations on Iraq, says Gen. Anthony Zinni, Bush's Middle East envoy.

    Republican Dissent on Iraq
    Full page ad in Wall Street Journal by major GOP contributors
    :

    "Mr. President, …The candidate we supported in 2000 promised a more humble nation in our dealings with the world. We gave him our votes and our campaign contributions. That candidate was you. We feel betrayed. We want our money back. We want our country back…. A Billion Bitter enemies will rise out of this war."
    - Wall Street Journal, January 13, 2003
    http://talkleft.com/new_archives/001444.html

    General William Odom, former head of the National Security Agency:

    "Right now, the course we're on, we're achieving Bin Laden's ends…. I've never seen it so bad between the office of the secretary of defense and the military. There's a significant majority believing this is a disaster. The two parties whose interests have been advanced have been the Iranians and al-Qaeda. Bin Laden could argue with some cogency that our going into Iraq was the equivalent of the Germans in Stalingrad. They defeated themselves by pouring more in there. Tragic."
    http://www.truthout.org/docs_04/091704Y.shtml

    Col. Mike Turner (ret), Schwarzkopf's personal briefing officer during Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm:

    “The uniformed Joint Staff in the Pentagon strongly opposed this plan early on...The uniformed Joint Staff was overridden, yet in so many horrifying ways this operation resembles Somalia, not Desert Storm...Perhaps we can pull this off, but here's a far worse scenario that's at least as likely...Photos of American soldiers amid landscapes of Iraqi civilian bodies blanket the world press which aligns unanimously against the US. The US is condemned by NATO and the UN...The war ends within a few weeks, but the crisis deepens...”

    You'd help your cause if you deleted the dailykos.com reference. Maybe you want to add a cindysheehan.com citation, though.

    Your first link is to an article whose headline reads:
    Negroponte: Iraq spawning new terror leaders
    Intel chief denies U.S. is at greater risk, responds to classified report furor

    Good article. You should read it.

    The second link is an article from January saying that a spokesman for the opposition party in Australia criticizes the government and says that the terror threat is getting worse because of reports that al Qaeda may have a presence in Australia. If you posted an article saying that Howard Dean's spokesman criticized Bush, that would be pretty meaningless. But this is so different.

    The third and fourth links are to two articles about the same BBC poll from February. A poll??? From February? Is there a point to this?

    The fifth link doesn't work.

    The trend is pretty clear. The articles are getting older and less relevant.


    NRG, I'll give you some unsolicited, constructive criticism - because I really want to hear your opinions.

    Please share your opinions. Actually write at least one sentence. Maybe two or three. And then provide supporting facts. Please try to be clear about what your point is in your posts. Sometimes your comment-less posts contradict your own apparent positions.

    The liberal side of dialogue at TC has been pretty disappointing, and I sincerely hope to see something better.

    True, but it is just Transcripts of an interviews. Easily enough fact checked, so I saw no issue w/ it.

    I would gladly do that once I get to a larger KB. But right now I am on my UX180P, and to say that the Treo's keyboard is more of a pleasure to type on then the UX's is an understatement of massive proportions.

    Wow. This is a highly valuable off-topic comment in the off-topic forum. I'd really like to know more about this. I have a Dell X1 laptop, small, light, nice, but I'm interested in pushing to smaller/lighter/converged phone/pda/laptop and the Universal or the UX180P looked like the direction to go.

    NRG, please start a thread on this somewhere--maybe the Other Handhelds forum?

    I think the UX fits my needs quite nicely. I was looking for a small computer I could travel with, and surf the couch.

    I think somebody had already started a thread here on tc(http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...hlight=ux180p).

    Then there is a forum dedicated to the UX series here (http://www.micropctalk.com)

    Hope this helps.

    danielson,

    when you swat a hornets nest, many hornets come out.

    myagi

    Meaning: You go and start killing terrorists, of course there will be support. One part of the report indicates recruits are less inclined to become an insurgent with Americans winning.
