Is Petraeus' Testimony Relevant to the Debate on Iraq?

Commented Sep 12, 2007 at 14:24:23 in Home

“It is a pity that a renouned General has become a pawn for the White House. It reminds us back when General Colin Powell stood aside when the President decided to invade Iraq.

General Petraus neglected to mention that the Iraq Government has never mad one of the 18 committments that agreed to do, but instead, went on vacation. He doesen't mention the necessity of re-taking areas that he had previously taken. No doers he address how many deaths and wounded have resulted from this war.Of course, he didn't say that there are Shites fighting Shites and Sunis fighting Sunis, and the fact that our soldiers are not even safe from Iraq police. No one seems to know whom they are fighting, and on what side they are fighting for. They only know they are dying, but not why? Even General Pace, Chm. Joints of Staff, says we shoud start getting out soon, not next July.

No add the amount of money that has been spent, or disappeared there. We only know that so much of our domestic issues are wanting.

It is, indeed, a pity that the rest of the world sees us as fools, where, once we were savoirs.”

What Does Al Know That We Don't?

Commented Jul 9, 2007 at 18:39:21 in Politics

“I think Al Gore is a candidate who could win. He is a proven leader who had an election stolen from him.
I like Hillary, but too many people do not, and she carries some baggage. John Edwards might be VP if he helped Gore in 2000;Barak Obama is really too new and without any exerience in foreign affairs, education, health care, etc. I love Richardson. He's m ake a wonderful VP candidate.”

Al Gore is correct, and I would like to see him run for President. He could win in a landslide.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot (More) Like Global Warming

Commented Dec 19, 2006 at 09:30:35 in Politics

“It is interesting how pundits like Ms.Sanders & Pat Buchanan can view the subject as either frivilous or funny (The ski is...). Sanders claims that the Gore twists the facts. Did she really see the movie. Facts are facts just as number are numbers. If she believes that 1+1 do not equal 2, then her head is below ground, not above it. Popeo claims a conspiracy to destroy our economy. I would ask them all where he would like to see their grandchildren in fifty years?”

Step Away From The Constitution, Mr. Gingrich, And Put Your Hands Where We Can See Them

Commented Nov 29, 2006 at 13:48:04 in Politics

“I think it is sad that the Mayor of New York can say he believes that fifty-one shots into an unarmed would-be bridegroom was NOT excessive.

Also, I wonder whether Al Sharpton and/or Jessie Jackson would put up a stink if the victim was white?”

Cheney: Situation In Iraq Is Going "Remarkably Well"...

Commented Oct 19, 2006 at 18:05:11 in Politics

“It is quite impossible to understand why anyone take any credence to anything Cheney says. It is "The Big Lie" again!

I would guess than many believe the GWB is the great savior of our time.

Our country will suffer many many years for the damage he has done. No money for education, health, poverty, science, medicine, etc., etc., etc. The only country who benefits is China, who now owns us.”
