  1. Idealism is what conservatives had in the U.S. about Iraq being transformed into a peaceful democracy. Realists were saying that the country was likely to be itching for a civil war before working to cooperate in government. Who do you think the realists were? And do you think that Cheney was right when he said the insurgency was coming to an end? Idealistic or realistic? Leftists believe in the UN.
  2. Congradulations on showing everyone that you have no idea what is going on in the middle-east.
  3.

  9. I try to discuss things in a rational manner. I've never been impressed by emotional snivelling. He reminds me of the peace protester who assaulted a friend of mine.
  10. When a leader completely backs one side right out of the gate doesn't that sort of ruin the diplomacy angle and get us involved? Uh no. Taking sides is part of diplomacy. This recent "neutral" crap isn't diplomacy.
  11. Do link to the story with the F-16's blowing babies to pieces.
  12. That is one of the stupidest things I've read all day.
