quote from the news article
I think many of you are missing the point and underestimating the intelligence of the Obama administration of thinking two steps ahead. By placating Iran and extending an olive branch, Obama is forcing them into a corner. If Iran rejects these overtures by Obama, a new and internationally popular new American President who has hopes for compromise, Iran's failure to compromise will be out in the open for the world to see. This will make it easier for Obama to gain the support and sympathy of other nations support, something Bush was unable to do with his hardline approach, if an actual conflict were to arise between the US and Iran over the next few years. Its chess not checkers
Nice try but I guess you forget the outpouring of sympathy and support the US received after the 911 attacks. Everyone except the militant muslims gave us the green light to damn near anything we wanted.
So why do you Dislike Obama so much? Is it because he is pro-abortion? Or maybe your just a racist. Tell us about some of his policies that you think the majority of America doesnt understand.
There are plenty of reasons not to like what Obama is doing, playing the race card is for the weak and stupid. If he couldn't deal with a little criticism, he shouldn't have ran for President. It makes you look stupid.
Are you kidding. Look how many troops we have in Iraq. We are not liberating those people, we are maintaining our air bases.
Actually, they held open elections yesterday. In 2005, there were hundreds of attacks trying to stop Democracy. How many attacks occurred yesterday? None.
The fact they're holding elections and not living under a dictator sounds to me like they're being liberated. Quit listening to NPR and do your own research.
Being in Iraq makes those people hate us even more. Everyday children get killed. Do you think that the families of those children will ever be pro American again? I have a friend that was in Iraq and he is scarred for life. He says that he had to kill 2 children. One had an assault rifle and he shot him. The other was in the road while they were trying to get away from an attack and he ran him over.
They only pretend to like us so they can gain control.
So tell me, what are the means to the end?
Thats another tired ass argument. There are more kids killed in this country everyday than Iraq.
As for your friend, thats the price of war. Its ugly and forces people to do things they may not otherwise imagine. If he wasn't prepared for it, he shouldn't have joined. You should tell him to go talk to a shrink.
Pretend to like us? I'm guessing the are pretending to vote? Pretending to take control of their own government and country. Talk about conspiracy theories, that would be the mother of them all.
I can see it now as they huddle in the corner and plot! Everyone pretend you like the Americans, we will hold elections, create a national infrastructure we've never had, start selling oil on the open markets and endure suffrage. When they leave, we'll ask Allah to send us another dictator that takes all our money, makes us live in poverty, treats women worse then animals and kills anyone who disagrees with him.
Come on dude, think about it. The end of this fiasco is that the people of Iraq can come and go as they please. They can own property, they can vote, they can take stand up and throw shoes at someone they don't like without fear of disappearing in the middle of the night.
Is that why the palestenians just voted in Hamas?
Do you even understand how Hamas won the trust of the people and came into power? With the financial backing from Iran and others, they provide services the government can not. They provide, food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc. Those people don't care if they are terrorists, they want to live just like everyone else.
They voted them in because they can provide. Much like the people in this country. Some think the Dems will provide, some think the GOP will provide.
Come on man, like I said before. Quit watching Keith Olberman, do your own research and find out whats really going in the world.
