I think we should have sent all available troops to Afghanistan in the fall of 2001. If we had done that, I am fairly sure that we would now have all three of these men by now ... dead or alive.

Instead, we sent less than 14,000 troops to Afghanistan, and more than ten times that amount to a country that never attacked us. Iraq is also a country that never had any WMD of any kind.

Were there human rights violations in Iraq? Yes.
However, there are human rights violation in over 50 countries right now, including Uganda, Chad, Sudan, China, North Korea ... and the list goes on ... and on.

We cannot afford to play "World Police", but the UN is set up for just that purpose. We had a golden opportunity to support the UN like never before, and Bush spat in their face on numerous occasions.

I think we need a President who is intelligent, and not so quick to go to war. I find it difficult to see the continuity of a President who says he reads the Bible, and then commits to war that will kill hundreds of thousands at the drop of a hat.

I think that is why you are recently seeing real Christians, like Jimmy Carter, come out against him.

Great video... Regarding your comment above... We have "The Man of War" to thank for it, along with all the sycophants that bend over at Rummy and Bush and Cheney's bloody feet.
