Hope this turns out alright for both sides, U.S. and Iraq. I really hope it's a good move. But it's too early to tell.

John Rambo? How about delta commando, Maj. Chuck Norris?! ;)

Over 100,000 dead and thats not including the Soldiers who died.

Makes you think is Oil REALLY worth all that.

Wonder if the War on Oil I mean terror will have the same body count when it all starts again, more than likely in Iran.

Im not American but a quick google showed Prop 8 being changed means gays can marry in California, well tbh I couldn't really care less if gays want to get married, but in a way it's good as hopefuly 1 day we will be rid of religion running our countrys, we have extremists from the east and it's no better in the west, Rome having a lot of say is just as bad, how can we as civilised people agree that.

1. An ex Nazi should be put in a position of Power
2. we should take advice and leadership from Rome when it defended the Nazi regime during the war and also helped them escape prosecution after the war and has still to yet return stolen property to the Jews it was taken from.

I'm going to be the heartless bastard and point out that the whole point of war is to kill people and break things, you win them by crushing the enemy's will to fight it and their ability to wage it. It's ugly but thats the way it is, low body count = draggs on forever. The whole reason that the "Iraq war" is still even going is precisely because the US has pulled its punches. It would have been over a loooong time ago had we just went over there and leveled anything and everything that could possibly posed any sort of threat what-so-ever.

I'm not going to try and make the case that the war in retrospect was a good idea. The fact is that we're there and at this point there is nothing that we can do about that. We either need to take the gloves off and get it over with as quickly as possible or we need to pull our troops out and quit borrowing money from China to fund some half assed politically correct excursion in the desert.

We Non-Americans love quotes like

" It would have been over a loooong time ago had we just went over there and leveled anything and everything that could possibly posed any sort of threat what-so-ever."

Basicaly you mean the US will take all their guns and bombs back from Saddam :)

Maybe getting a better foreign policy would be better.

It's going to be like 1975 all over again. The liberal media never said this and liberal textbooks never mention it but after our hippie congress and retarded Nixon president pulled us out of Vietnam, North Vietnam launched an offensive in early 1975. South Vietnam's requests for aid were denied by the U.S. Congress, and after Thieu abandoned the northern half of the country to the advancing Communists, a panic ensued. During the entire war, about 50,000 US soldiers died. Seems like a lot until you learn that over 400,000 South-Vietnamese soldiers and civilians were slaughtered by the North-Vietnamese because we were too sissy to defend them.

And what kind of f**king retarded president virtually tells our enemy, "Hey, terrorists, you just hold on for a little while. We'll be gone in about a year. Then you can go back to the way things were without us in your way."

I dare you to find one major terrorist act in the past 50 years that can be directly linked to Christianity. We don't hijack aircraft and crash them into office buildings. Christianity is the most hated religion in the world because everyone knows we believe in turning the other cheek. We never violently retaliate against anyone insulting us. If that were the case, literally every Hollywood star would be dead. If you publicly make fun of Islam, on the other hand, you will receive death threats and have a bomb left on your doorstep. Our Bible doesn't have chapter on Jihad or Holy War like the Muslims' does.

Hmm, sounds great until we remember the Crusades!

It is my belief that humanity would be better off without religion. I'm fed up of being told that I should believe in an entity which has no evidence to back it up or I'll go to hell. Or be blown up on the tube.

Yup pretty much. Islam is NOT an inherently peaceful religion. There is a reason why it has spawned so much terrorism, dictatorships, barbarism... because it is a philosophy that uses force and the threat of violence to propagate through and control the masses. We all know it, we see the results on the news every day, and yet no one is coming out and saying it. If and when there is a world war III I really think it will be between The West and Islam because a true culture of tolerance and shariah law are fundamentally incompatible.
