And It's 1, 2, 3 What Are We Fightin' For?

The unelected self-styled emperor bush's Iraq misadventure is in a state of utter meltdown:

With fears of full-blown civil war gripping Iraq, the capital was sealed off, cars were prohibited from entering, and all but the most official vehicles banned from traveling between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m.


After 2,300 Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis dead, this has led to complete instability teetering on civil war. There is no "good" solution at this point, but first we must hold bush and the Americans who supporting him morally accountable for their disaster which has only made the world a considerably worse place.

War is never a good thing, I think that's a given. But nothing the American people can say or do will take back the war now. People are under the severe misimpression that had a liberal been elected in the last election, they would have pulled out. Not so. I'm not against speaking out against the government, but if you're opposed you should have bitched BEFORE war was declared, and you can do so after it's over. But we're fighting now, so all those opposed need to sit down, shut up and support it. 70% of America was vehemently against WWII, but 100% put all the effort they could behind it on the home front. The more you support the troops now, the faster we will get out and the sooner you can start bitching again. Protesting will only weaken moral and resolution.

Grow up, America, and get your priorities straight. Yes, it was a mistake to go into Iraq. But you're there, you're fighting and people are dying. Finish the job.

As I support your right to express your opinion above, so I wish that you supported mine to loudly proclaim that violence diminishes our collective humanity and makes the world a worse place. I did in fact vocally and visibly oppose the war before it was started and have done so consistently.

I also very much support and care about the troops which is part of the reason that I demand them brought home safely, immediately. These are human beings and I do not want to see only death after death.

It seems as though at this point it is very clear even to the original supporters of the war that by continuing this, we are only creating a bigger mess.

While I won't ask you to do it, if you believe that there is a necessity for some to "sit down [and] shut up" for the public good, I think you might consider doing so yourself.

I urge everyone who cares about either our troops, innocent Iraqis, or both, to speak out as loudly, as often, and as visibly as possible that this illegal brutality must end immediately.

There were those who suggested even before the invasion of Iraq that toppling the dictator might well lead to civil war, notably including a few political science professors well versed in the regional politics. But nobody listens to them.

Good point, Gary. There was no constructive purpose for this war. Only risks and death.
