Stupid War in Iraq!

Many people tend to hate the war in Iraq. In fact, the opinion polls regarding our success in the war effort shows that a growing majority of the US is against the war. I think that such animosity arises due to articles such as this one: Iraq battle stress worse that WWII . In this article, Michael Smith describes how many of the soldiers are petrified to even fire their weapons for fear of being court marshalled.

Now, I don't think that such articles should be silenced. But, it seems that the liberal media is mainstream; therefore, the balance of similar more conservative viewpoints are neither shown nor expressed. The truth is that many people - liberal and conservative - believe whatever they hear because people tend not to want to research things for themselves. That said, we have our liberal propaganda experts to thank for the lack of morale and support for the War in Iraq.

Do I think that our current administration should be more upfront with the successes? Absolutely. But the problem is that even when the successes are presented, we have the liberal voices drowning these successes with their alleged failures (i.e. 2000th US soldier death).

With the lack of support for the war, the most detrimental thing for our troops and citizens of Iraq is ahead: the pullout of our military. To me, it seems that political pressure will provoke the 2008 elected president - democrat or republican - to 'bring our troops home.' I really wish that our currect administration as well as the media would inform people just how inconceivable the results of such would be.

I blogged on this the other day.......If Americans knew the truth they would be stunned by how much BS the media is giving them.

Iraqis Are More Optimistic Than American Opinion Makers

**There is little doubt this headline is true........63% of Iraq wouldn't show up to vote in an election which could cost them their lives if they didn't believe in the viability of the process.

These people have suffered mightily under Sodom, and have had a historical record of tyranny and despotism........Of course they are optimistic. This is the first time they and their people have ever had such a blessed opportunity.

But, it must be remembered many Americans stand to do well if Iraq fails.......They are praying for Iraq to fall apart, for a civil war to break out, and for American troops to perish in the desert of the Middle East.

We know these people as DEMOCRATS. --> The bottom-feeders of the American political system, who are kept alive by the reality of one simple sentence:

"If it's bad for America, it's good for Democrats.......And, if it's good for America, it's bad for Democrats."**

I think that's a great point, Pero. It's funny how the agenda is being pushed by the liberals to end a war that a hopeful Iraqi nation appears to desparately desire and appreciate! I know that I would if I were under such a destructive regime.

Would you say that most Iraqis support the US military presence in Iraq?

Bobino,

It's really difficult to make an accurate assessment of the Iraqis view of our military presence in Iraq. This is true due to the spin with the media and the different facets of the Iraqi society which are not represented. That said, I can only think that if I were in similar conditions, I'd be particularly appreciated of an assistive military presence.
