1. Grrrrrrr ...
No political aim other than killing American soldiers?

I know it's a stretch, but well, uh ... maybe they just want us to leave?

I think Americans should have been able to figure out that if we don't go there, they won't shoot us" (IRAQ)" before we went in.

How long before the Repubs message 'o the day returns to "Stay the course, there are approximately 5,000 dead enders that are causing this."

We heard that 5,000 number throughout Iraq for months on end. I wonder when Rummy finally realized for ever one you kill you create two.

2. I really do not think their are many terrorists we are just making more.
And their has always been terrorists around here as other places. The problem is terrorists have always been willing to get the ends they want by any means and that is not new.The new part is when one country goes into another's country to say what they should do. And we are the country doing that not Russia or say England or Germany.

3. "Stay the course."
That is the Kerry/Edwards motto, also. The invasion of Iraq was illegal, under false premise and now so is the Occupation. The "new Iraqi Govt. is a US Puppet Govt. and not valid. How many more US Troops deaths and tax money of Middle Class, Working Poor and Poor will it take before a majority of Amerikans say, enough?
