Can't he just use 9/11 victims like he's done before.
Originally posted by gesI'm would be more comfortable with a "we don't start wars, we finish them" stance. The problem with pre-emptive strikes is that you really need to be 100% sure that you would be struck first without action, something we clearly were not with Iraq. In fact, it is now clear that Iraq wasn't a threat to this nation (or any other for that matter) at all. And since we taken a position of pre-emptive strike, it stands to reason that some nations may feel the need to adopt a similar pre-emptive strike position against us. After all, if we are not going to wait for them to make the first strike, why should they wait for us to make the first strike? I just think pre-empitve strategy is just a bad idea all around, especially to deal with a problem which is way down the list of things that will likely kill you.
Not just attacking USA, but attacking eachother as well. How can Bush/USA have any sort of authority to try to ease tensions between two bickering countries on the verge of war when they themselves are jumping the gun and taking over a country... That's what's more worrying than anything else, you open a can of worms or do the U.S just go on living with the motto of "Do as I say not as I do". This whole Pre-emptive strike is way too Tom Cruise "Minority Report". You cannot attack other countries just because you suspect they might be a threat, because if that's the case what the United States did to Iraq there's a lot of other countries around there that should feel threatened do they take the same actions that the U.S did to Iraq. Gawd I hope not but I think the actions that took place in Iraq for the future does more harm than good

Not only is the soccer team upset; so is the USOC.
I really think it's much ado about nothing because I don't think it's going to make as much impact as say, a Swift Boat ad.
Hear me out on this GOP'ers: Agree that approval for the Iraq war has faded pretty badly; do you think it's a mistake for the Bush re-election team to spend money on this instead of focusing on job/health-care/"values" issues domestically?
