  1. "New Chairman of Arkansas Republican Party Calls for More Terrorist Attacks on America. BuzzFlash is Not Making This Up: 'At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [sept. 11, 2001], and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country.'" GOP chief: New strategy key The Republican Party of Arkansas, which was beaten decisively in last year’s election, needs
  2. Our Troops deserve better don't they? WARNING: GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING VIDEOS Not Recommended for ALL viewers! President Bush and his Administration built Saddam Hussein to appear more of a threat than he actually was, by saying things like... "before he becomes an imminent threat", "mushroom clouds", "supporting terrorists", "shopping for uranium in Niger", etc., etc. To date, we’ve had more than 2,300 American troops killed in Iraq. More than 17,000 others injured, many losing arms, legs, or their sight! These numbers climb daily. Saddam Hussein had to be dealt with at some point, no do
  3. Haven't we given Iraq enough? Liberation from Saddam Hussein. The lives of 2000 of our Brave and counting. The almost 15,000 injured and counting. $200,000,000,000.00 and counting. But hey, if you support this QUAGMIRE, The Bush Administration has a plan for you. You can now put your money where your mouth is. I have always said that those who support this war should enlist to fight it. I know that's not always possible, though. Well now, leave it to GW and Co. to find a way for YOU to contribute now, as well! As for me? I won't be giving one red cent, simply because I DON'T SUPPORT T
  4. -Want a REAL Threat? North Korea! I see, so your suggesting that we all wait until Iraq possesses nuclear weapons, and then what? They were no where close to nukes. Bush put that fear in you. N. Korea on the other hand, HAS THEM! Are we waiting for Cuba to get them before we act? -Want to fight terror? Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Jordon I see, so your suggesting that we all ignore Iraq's ties to terrorism, including the funding of suicide bombers? Saddam Husseim "offered" to fund them. Hamas read through him like the UN read through Bush! They didn't buy. -Want
  5. Why did we invade Iraq? Want a REAL Threat? North Korea! Want to fight terror? Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Jordon (among others)! Want a strategic location? Afghanistan's good... oops, no oil! Want to liberate somebody? Cuba! No, I am NOT suggesting war with these nations. I'm suggesting that Iraq was the least of our worries, until Bush became President! Saddam Hussein had Iraq in their own little world. He was a wicked evil dictator, no doubt. But a threat to NOBODY but Iraqis. His Air Force was buried in the desert. His Armor units depleted during Desert Storm,
  6. Had we stayed out of Iraq or invaded with a REAL coalition, there would be NO STRAINS on our Military. Bush KNEW that! Here's what he said when applying to the American People for the job of Commander in Chief... Where's the OUTRAGE?
  7. I understood when some of the American People called for Bush’s impeachment after invading Iraq. I don't know why... perhaps, I let the rightwing flag-waving peer pressure get to me, but I didn't jump on that bandwagon. SHAME ON ME! Had we impeached Bush instead of re-electing him (if he REALLY was re-elected… Ohio), perhaps we'd have been more prepared for Hurricane Katrina and who knows, maybe even saved some more lives. Maybe some of our troops would be on their way home from Iraq, by now… saving yet more American lives! Maybe our Government should be doing more to build a better Americ
  8. Good point! You're correct. The (partisan) rightwing Senate and rightwing America have proved there's NOTHING that Bush can do to get himself impeached! Hell, with what's right and what's wrong. It's about partisan politics. Thanks for clearing that up!
  9. IMPEACH BUSH MOVEMENT! Bush has failed us in oh so many ways. Our "National Guard" is stuck fighting in a nation (QUAGMIRE) called Iraq instead of tending to domestic affairs, as needed. Hurricane Katrina has OVERWHELMED this Government, as did the WTC attacks on 9/11/01! FEMA Director Brown, who Bush told "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job" 5 days after Hurricane Katrina hit, has resigned and who does Bush appoint as interim Director? David Paulison, the frickin' "duct tape and plastic sheathing, in the case of chemical attack", guy! Oh boy, don't we feel safe now! NOT! My goodness
  10. New Orleans had long known it was highly vulnerable to flooding and a direct hit from a hurricane. In fact, the federal government has been working with state and local officials in the region since the late 1960s on major hurricane and flood relief efforts. When flooding from a massive rainstorm in May 1995 killed six people, Congress authorized the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project, or SELA. Over the next 10 years, the Army Corps of Engineers, tasked with carrying out SELA, spent $430 million on shoring up levees and building pumping stations, with $50 million in local aid. Bu
  11. "If you're going to go in and try to topple Saddam Hussein, you have to go to Baghdad. Once you've got Baghdad, it's not clear what you do with it. It's not clear what kind of government you would put in place of the one that's currently there now. Is it going to be a Shia regime, a Sunni regime or a Kurdish regime? Or one that tilts toward the Baathists, or one that tilts toward the Islamic fundamentalists? How much credibility is that government going to have if it's set up by the United States military when it's there? How long does the United States military have to stay to protect the peo
  12. If Terrorists had blown up the levee, the Federal Government would have been right there.... Rest assured!<---click there. Viva la Bush!
  13. Well said! I think you're EXACTLY correct! Bush is actually playing right into the hands of al Qaeda, with his war in Iraq.
  14. Geez, who EVER claimed WWI and WWII were "based on lies"?
  15. Hi, I'm a new member here and this is my first post. I'm a Veteran and a Patriot. I support the war in Afghanistan, but I am very much against the war in Iraq. Or at least the reasons we were given, the way it was executed and the timing. My thoughts on the war in Iraq... Americans and the world have been given different reasons for the war with Iraq, as the Bush Administration's unsubstantiated invasion and occupation has become more and more confusing. Iraq, ties to 9/11. Iraq, no ties to 9/11. Iraq, ties to al Qaeda. Iraq, no ties to al Qaeda. Iraq, threat to USA. Iraq,
