Iraq
Iraq shouldn't even be a category! Iraq never posed an urgent threat to the United States, nor did it have anything to do with the 9/11 attack. The simple fact is that BUSH LIED ! ! ! Add / Read Comments

If the torture at the Abu Ghraib prison was the responsibility of a "few bad apples" and not the responsibility of the U.S. government that supported them, then why was the 9/11 attack not the responsibility of a "few bad apples" and not the responsibility of the Talaban government that supported them?

The invasion of Iraq was, at least in part, about the profits of US oil companies and support industries for the oil industry and the military. It provides an opportunity to privatize Iraq's natural resources for the benefit of U.S. corporations. Add / Read Comments

If a foreign military rolled its tanks down your street, imposed a curfew in your neighborhood and shot on sight anyone on the streets after "lights out," and demanded that you and your neighbors immediately turn over all weapons or be subject to house-to-house searches, what would be the reaction of you and your neighbors. Would it matter if the invading military claimed to be there to help you? Would you resist? Would you consider your resistance an "insurgency of terrorists?" Add / Read Comments
So now September 2007 is here and we're waiting for a respected Army General to tell us what is wrong with Iraq. The last time we found ourselves in this position, we wound up listening to another respected Army General, Colin Powell, tell us about all of the weapons of mass distruction in Iraq.

George Bush presided over more executions in Texas than any other state, and dropped around 18,000 bombs on Iraq in the space of about 3 weeks. Then he preaches about a "culture of life." Next he rails aginst "moral relativism." Who on Earth can listen to this guy with a straight face? Add / Read Comments

The current perspective on the Iraq invasion from both parties is that we have to "stay the course" in Iraq, regardless of whether it was right or wrong to go in in the first place. OF COURSE it matters if it was right or wrong to go in from the beginning, and the determination that we make regarding that issue should and will influence how we proceed in Iraq.

The issues at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital go way beyond moldy walls and rat infested buildings. The U.S. is about to spend 650 billion dollars on defense this year. Yet troops on the ground still don't have body armor or armored Humvees. Where is the money going???

Bush's budget (and privatizing the Iraq occupation) has resulted in lucrative contracts for mercenaries and military contractors while denying low-pay grade soldiers a living wage and adequate V.A. benefits.

The Bush adminstration isn't "supporting the troops", it's supporting the defense contractors corporate executives.

We're not leaving Iraq until they pass the "Oil Law."
