War

Petraeus wrong in sending more troops into Iraq

First Gen. Colin Powell mislead us into this bloody war.

Now, Gen. Petraeus (Betray U.S.) has to e sure more of our troops shed blood along with many innocent Iraquis.

Support the Troops? Then DO something people, these Generals sure aren’t going to!

Get active, protest, write letters, but DO SOMETHING!

Inslee lone voice of reason in Congress on war effort

Saddam Hussein was the glue that held Iraq together. Bush removed that glue. And now Iraq is falling apart.

Congressman Jay Inslee said, “No matter how effective our military is, it cannot solve the political problems in Iraq. The destiny of Iraq cannot be decided by American soldiers.” Anyone who disagrees with Inslee is either stupid or George Bush.

It doesn’t matter if we send a hundred million troops into Iraq. At the end of the day, when the dust settles, after we have left, it will be up to the Iraqi people to decide if they want a bloodbath or peace.

Thank God we have one Congressman left with a brain.
