    "it is not a pretty picture"

    "beyond pitiful and embarrassing; it is now in the zone of dangerous." - Richard Lugar, GOP

    The two witnesses — Ronald Schlicher, deputy assistant secretary of State for the Iraq bureau, and Joseph Bowab, deputy assistant secretary for foreign assistance programs and budget — conceded under questioning that the administration has fallen short of benchmarks touted over the past year:

    while chuckleheads are obsessing over kinko-gate the real story is how poorly this administration has done in many aspects of government... both at home and in the nations we have chosen to "reconstruct."

    They should have carpet bombed Fallujah, Sadr City and a few other places 8 months ago.

    But I think we all know why that wasn't done.

    What's up with Sandy Berger? Enquiring minds want to know.

    I wonder how much Reconstruction after the Civil War cost. Probably too much. We should have just let the Confederates secede. It would have prevented alot of unnecassary death and work.

    why should they have carpet bombed those cities?..
    why should they still be there? Why were they there on the first place?
    Who the Fu-k is america to decide how Iraqui people should live?

    Thats a damn good question that needs answering.

    I mean come-on we've only killed 30,000 civilians. They could sustain massive bombings on their major cities. The survivors would understand that it was all for the best, and would have no resentment.

    This war is f'ed up. The Iraquis dont want us there, there is massive resistance and we never secured any city beyond Baghdad. Now we are stuck there shifting money from reconstruction to Oil pipeline repair. We are screwed in Iraq...like it or not we are there for the next 5-10 years. We will see many american soldiers die for these iraqui scumbags. Will any of these beheading bastards be brough to justice? probably not. Will Zarquawi be caught? probably not, if caught he will probably be killed.

    We cant abandon Iraq....if we pick up and leave now...you will see Iraq become the hot bed of Al Qadea and a new taliban. We are screwed because the insurgents' action is only lengthening our occupation.

    you go, bman&#33; Preach on brother. It&#39;s obvious to Bush supporters that the lives of Americans and Iraqis both are not sacred. Only keeping the chimp in power matters&#33;
