It's so true. Violating the Constitution, a trillion-dollar war debt, thousands of Americans killed and maimed, new terrorists inspired by the US killing their loved ones.... it's all so brave.

Bravery is not a synonym for stubbornness.

You call it bravery, I call it ignorant pride(the 7 deadly sin kind)...

I'm sure Al Quaida is counting too and just waiting for the day the new administration is sworn in and the war on terror officially comes to a halt.
Your naivete never ceases to amaze me.

Do I really need to continue or do you get my point?
I always try hard and think when I choose my analogies



people will read into them things that the author may not intend


that being said, comparing people to vermin is not a good analogy,
this has been done in the past, to gain acceptance/ or indifference for extermination

Talk about two blind posts.

I think 2816 puts it best when he says "If that ain't brave, I don't know what is."

Bush isn't brave. He's cocky and stubborn.

And AB, it's quite clear you don't have the first clue about foreign policy.

I'm deeply sorry if that's how this analogy sounded.
What I meant was "when the cat is away, the mice will play"

I was definitely NOT comparing anyone with vermin - I hope that is now clear.

Good morning Philly,

I'd like to respond to you but I'm not quite sure what you meant by foreign policy.

Could you clarify please?

Thanks.

Try your comments about Al Qaeda for one.

According to reports, they are stronger today than since 2001.

Yet you lament a change in the policy that has caused this.

That's because you're duped by biased media and politicians into thinking that any change in the policy means some kind of surrender.

It took Bush over 4 years to decide that he didn't have enough soldiers on the ground. He fired a General who said as much in 2003, 4.5 years later he's parading Petraeus around as the saviour. How many more casualties did this 'bravery' cause? And you and 2861 and others want to pat him on the back for sticking by his guns?

That's the cowboy M.O., a fucking tragic display of ignorance and hubris. Who cares what it costs in treasure as long as someone can't proclaim they "beat" the United States. This is the Vietnam argument that helped 58,000 soldiers meet their demise and countless thousands of others suffer to this day. Including John McCain, why does he say he's willing to stay in Iraq for 100 years? Because he's still fighting that same fight.

At some point, wiser heads have to prevail.
That leaves the Bushies out. Thank God.

Thing is though... would our country "really" be better? will we really come out of the war? and if we do will everything be okay all of a sudden? I think right now it's just a big big big mess. We pull out, it's a mess, we stay, it's a mess.

Bush is terrible, but everytime I look at him I laugh.

Nah, I'm sure he will accept that his time is over and leave office peacefully.

It's comments like this that make it impossible to take you seriously.
