Bump.

Why?
The question seems almost moot at this point.

The Iraqis in effect kicked us out, because they would not give our remaining 3k-5K trumps that were to stay as sitting ducks, and maybe get caught up in the ensuing cross fire, immunity. So no, I don't support "the war."  The war is over, until it begins again, presumably the next time without the US being front and center.

Ok now were getting into tricky areas. First of we have to decide is marriage a religous institution or is it state sanctioned, because the right wing who profess to want smaller federal goverment are the same ones who want to say its a religous instution and want the federal goverment to ban it. So if it is a religous institution it should be up to the churches and if the church see fit to marry two smae sex people then the state should have to honor it, and thats how I think it should be left up to churches. Me personally I dont care if two people of the ame sex are allowed to marry, so I guess I am for it. As far as abortion goes I am pro-choice and no I do not think my state should ban either.

Ah, then you're a libertarian.

It takes a lot more than one's position on abortion and marriage to determine or disqualify one as being a libertarian.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Do I support it in the sense I believe we were justified to act and did the right thing?  Yes, absolutely.

Would I have supported it knowing that we would sacrifice 4,000 young men and women and put our country deeply in debt?  No.

Not sure how to answer this question.

It's a war. That goes with the territory. It could have gone worse in terms of US/coalition military casualties. Much worse.  Imagine if Saddam had WMD's and decided to use them when attacked!

I think most Americans had the vision that the war in Iraq would be more like the first Gulf war rather than more like Vietnam.

Daddy Bush didn't see it that way though.

I didn't support it before it started (because even as a Uni student I knew the WMD argument was utter bollocks - but I'm very much a 'you broke it, you bought it' guy. We had a responsibility to stay until the regime change we helped bring about was relatively stable.

the false date of birth was Oct 27 1966, so I suppose I was 36.
