    40 would just enlist, this war would be won very quickly.  Truly.  I am not being snide here.  But they all want the rush from being at war, and killing/maiming the enemy, but don't want to actually do it.

      Agree completely. EVERY war supporter should be putting their money where their mouth is--by force if necessary.

      Colin Powell had one thing right about Iraq--you break it, you bought it. Well, now it's broke but good. And there are some who propose that the Dims buy it from the Bu$hCo. and the Rethugs? I don't think so. It's THEIR mess. And it CAN'T be cleaned up.

      If we stay in Iraq, the situation will deteriorate, and more Americans will die. If we leave, the situation will deteriorate FASTER. The chaos will look like Somalia if we're lucky, post-Soviet Afghanistan if we're not.The tragic Irony of Iraq ia that we can't pull out until the situation is stable, and it'll never be stable as long as we're there.

      As satisfying as it might be to gloat over the massive failures of Bu$hCo. and crow "we told you so", that'll be mighty cold comfort when Al Qeada owns the world's second-largest oil reserves and uses the revenue to buy a nuke from Iran or Pakistan.

      Our only hope--and it's a mighty slim one--is that with Bu$hCo. out of the picture we can somehow cobble together a coalition of relatively secular, moderate Arab nations to go in and try to restore some semblance of order. It'll be bloody, corrupt, and repressive as hell, but it beats the alternative. As for us, we need to be putting that 5 billion a month we're spending over there into R/D of non-oil energy. Oil is the only reason we're there to begin with, and as long as we're addicted to oil, there's no getting out.

      Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.
