wanna know the main issue in that entire thing? it is too nice.

presidents can be nice people, but the people around them are hardasses, or their platform is, or somehting, or they never get backing, and they never get elected.

another problem which you didn't even think about apparently is "obsolving the war" doesn't just happen. if you pull all troops out,t he civil war will enlarge, iran and hesbolah will become more powerful, and the shi'ite/sunii/kurd war could turn into a massive regional war, on par with the 30 year was (something that still has minor effects today, 400 years later). if this happened, eventually it would likely turn into a one-power region, and chances of that one power being friendly to the west are next to none.

and yet another issue is "id make private companies..." we are an economically free society, in which the government has almost no say on the business. lessee fare (im sure i spelled that incorrectly, i usually do). to pass a large bill like this, you would need the house's support, and most of the house is heavily influenced by those large companies. to change it away fro lessee would insinuate riots and huge upheavels from people who own these massive companies who love the green linings of their wallets. to change that, you would first have to get lobbying assholes the fuck out of the system, something which cannot easily be done.

Honestly Haddon I have no clue how the issues in iraq would get resolved, but I do know that as the US is there helping oppress the problem causes and not letting the Iraq people themselves deal with the issues at hand, things will only get worse. . .

I know American is acting like a big brother to a small nation, but America is not old enough to be any parent or guide in this situtation. . .If the country of IRaq has problems let them deal with their problems. . .

As for the US we never went to IRAQ because of "shi'ite/sunii/kurd war." We went into IRaq under the assumption Saddam had weapons of mass Destruction. . . If he did or did not still remains a mystery and the media now days covers "WAR PROPAGANDA." Any example is the "shi'ite/sunii/kurd war."

This was has nothing to deal with weapons of Mass Destruction and SAddam was assassinated, and murdered on the political arena for the entire world see. . . That right Saddam was made a maryter for the entire world. Oh how the seeds of revenge have been sown.

The US can do nothing to save face for FIRST using NAZI Propaganda Techniques to justify a war that in my eyes is unjustifyable on the basis that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found!!!!

So on that not since the US can do nothing ot save face in the middle east, I suggested we obsolve and pull out. . .I'll be damned if I support the oppression and murdering of people on my watch. . .

"We estimate that between March 18, 2003, and June, 2006, an additional 654,965 (392,979–942,636) Iraqis have died above what would have been expected on the basis of the pre-invasion crude mortality rate as a consequence of the coalition invasion. Of these deaths, we estimate that 601,027 (426,369–793,663) were due to violence." ~http://www.thelancet.com/webfiles/images/journals/lancet/s0140673606694919.pdf"



and yet another issue is "id make private companies..."
<-=-- I pointed out that i would make sure private companies, I Did not say i'd make them!!!!!!!!!!

To deal with this i'd have reform and change, all back by the american people. .. I know I cannot change the government on my own nor would I ever plan do. I'd get the people to support me which means they would elect people to congress to help.

war doesn't need justification in the eyes of a leader. "i want power, land, riches, fame" is all the justification they have ever needed, or will ever need. never think otherwise...people are not good. even the best of people have their bad things, or will allow bad to happen. look at the third reich...how many of those people were "good people", but were brainwashed by mass hysteria. the witch burnings, the crusades, the attacks on china and korea by japan, the sack of rome...all things done by "good people". never count on that.

and no, we cant really just pull out of iraq and hope things will be chill...if we pull out, the war will increase, far more people will die, and it could very well create a very nasty situation for the west. the only option is diplomacy.

and sadam wasn't assassinated, he was found guilty by trial and put to death federally, and officially. that is not an assassination. and he did not become a martyr for all of his people...his people are split down the middle, his faction considered him a great leader, his enemies considered him a horrible person and cheered at his capture, and at his death.

and just for the record, i think this war in iraq IS bullshit. but not because we are fighting where we don't belong...we are the new rome, if we have the power, we belong there. it was lied about, bungled, and handled horribly. i don't care about soldiers being killed, hell, kill em all i wouldn't give a damn (and yes, that includes the few soldiers i know, their own fault for signing up for stupidity), i do care slightly about the innocents, but to be honest...i have no issue with war. war is natural, it cannot be helped, it cannot be stopped. i wish all the fucking treehuggers would figure that out: man is violent. man will fight. man will kill. get the fuck over it.

Begin to pull some of the troops out of Iraq, cut military funding (not a lot) and concentrate on reducing the amount of fossil fuels used in America, even if it does (OMG) hamper the economy for a while.

I disagree, Haddon, about what you just wrote (too lazy to quote it) about war being completely neutral. Don't get me wrong, war is an unavoidable factor in all life forms, weather they can even tell or not. Regardless, I don't think that all of the soldiers in Iraq should die, even the ones who joined "stupidly". The military has its obvious advantages for some people, and others are just into that sort of thing, and it's not like commiting suicide. Not every members has to fight; hell, some sign up to work as cooks, but those people, no matter what kind of job they have, all make a sacrifice. Sure, war is unavoidable - there will be battles, empires will crumble, and people will die - but we still have to honor what those people put down personally. Looking at everything objectively and seeing just the facts separates us from our past, and ultimately, our humanity.
All organisms compete for food and water; ultimately, we exist to keep existing. Wars, although on a much larger scale for things like government and land, will always happen with intelligent beings who can communicate (the skill that separates us from other animals.) Just because we can't avoid them, though, doesn't mean we should ignore the brave people fighting in them! Until you can actually experience what war is like, not hear it retold by someone who was in war, but actually experience it for yourself, then never, ever, disrespect the hardworking people of this or the next country's army. If it wasn't for them, none of us would be on our damn computers in the first place!
I'm not trying to wail on anyone - this isn't even the topic of the forum - but really, respect has its place. Even I know that. War, anyway, isn't completely necessary. Maybe for our mental selves, yes if we want to stay sane, but really, if a country has power, it should try to the best of its abilities to stop more dangerous things than other countries.

I`d have no war. And helping the homeless and the needy. Fixing the bad areas in the world. Just doing anything it takes for the world to be better.
