    No time soon. Regardless of him telling all of his "flock" that he will "end this war in 09."

    There will likely be no substantial change in whatever will be the process in place when he takes office.


    "Change" is a nice buzzwork, but also bullspit.

    I would say hes going to try and get it done within a year. BUT I do not think at this time thats at all possible. If we were to withdraw now that country would be a disaster area. Im aganist this particular war have been for years and before it started but you can be stupid about it either. Now we have even more issue in Afganistan with the Taliban trying to retake the country. We have one huge mess that has not been handled very well from the start.

    I hear just logistically it's impossible. To get all our shyt outta there would require like 18 months minimum. We've had 5+ years to get tons of equipment over there, and we can't possibly pull it all out in 6 or 12 months like Hill and/or Obama say.

    The idea of bringing democracy to Iraq is, to borrow a saying from my Dad, like trying to wipe up piss with sh*t.

    And there is a reason for that......not that any of the brain trusts in the Re-Bush administration tried to research, I don't know, the history of Iraq or anything. Books are for sissies. He-he. Terror.

    Israel is a parliamentary democracy.

    And as far as the Middle East goes it's far to complex to go into with one post but suffice it to say that the region is torn between tribal loyalties, religious sects, and certain ethnic differences.

    The two common characteristics that the region shares is Islamic dominance and autocratic rule. In fact the tribal, religious, ethnic difference shared by the people of the middle east probably make democracy and pluralism completely untenable.

    No, not really. McCain is going to be the next president, Obama's past is going to kill his chances. To bad though I always wanted a racist black Muslim Jew hating turn your back on your own family ironic cool guy as the leader of our country. Maybe next time. Here's an idea for the Demo party have Louis Farrakhan run for office the next time maybe he can win.

    there has never been a candidate as old as McCain to win the general election.

    If he wins he will be older than Ronnie (with less hair).

    You remember Ronnie, right? The fun older gentleman who got Alzheimers in office? Liked Jelly Beans? Great guy.
