70. OK......
Edited on Sun Jan-31-10 07:08 AM by giabelsi
But why didn't we bring our troops come home as promised after the election? Our departure date remains the same. Despite Bush's references to the Bible, and how crazy it is that we're there - We are in fact still there. It's none of our business what the Iraqi do or who the ruling party in Iraq is. They have been killing each other for thousands of years. All that killing/genocide justified by religion. I agree that war based on religious beliefs is not something we should be taking part in. It's ridiculous that we waste American resources or lives interfering. And the threat to Israel boils down to a family feud. Again, none of our business. Why should we care what happens in the Middle East?
What can we possibly accomplish? As soon as we leave Iraq will be back to the same old same old. Anything we accomplished will just be reversed.

Unfortunately there were parallels of Bush and Obama that I ignored during the election. They both had problems in their youth. Change. Maybe not so much....
