Am I the only one on this site that supports President Bush on his stance with Iraq? I've seen both sides of the story and I don't see any reason to let Saddam stay in power any longer. While I rather not see a war, Iraq has been given more then enough time to disarm and rejoin modern civilization. It seems to me that as time passes we find compliancy with what happened in the past. There are times when strong decisions must be made and this is one of those times. I'm in full support for military action against Iraq.

MBMBOS, because there are people in this world that think nothing about gassing a group of their own citizens, just to see how a chemical weapon works. Or think nothing of beheading someone because they ask the same question you asked - WHY?! That's why there are times when strong decisions must be made!

So Saddam gassed the Kurds over a decade ago and we have decided that NOW is the the time to place hundreds of thousands of troops in harm's way and bomb the hell out of a country, killing even more innocent civilians in the process? We're going to war because Saddam gassed the Kurds?

Tbird, you're not alone on this. I support Mr. Bush because he's our President...and while I'm may not like all of his ideals, he's the only President we have. So whether anyone like Bush or not, the war is coming. So we're all going have to get use to the idea. Because there's not a damn thing any member on this board can do about it. As a native American, I fully support our troops over there & elsewhere in the world 110%. I wish I was there with you. Best regards to all.

This site has always had a majority of liberal, anti-American hacks. A lot are from Europe but sadly, plenty are home grown. What is even sadder are their true feelings but don't post them here because they're too radical for this site. They post it on a site last time I checked we're not allowed to mention.
Some hate Bush because they hate any time a Republican is successful. Some hate him because he is putting America first. Others because he supports Israel. Some hate him because just because he is an American. Finally, many hate him for all of the above.
Liberals claim to be the side of "compassion, understanding, and acceptance". Funny how the only people they accept are those who agree with them.

I support our President...because he is right and our cause is just. When this is over and he is proven right, you will still sit in your comfortable homes spouting your mindless hatred sleeping under the blanket of freedom that our Armed Forces provide.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.
I have seen him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery gospel, writ in burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on."
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgment-seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me:
As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

I support him 100%
Too many damn times throughout the years we have been there when we were needed to help other countries.Now,this time it's about US.It's not about Kuwait,It's not about the Kurds,I don't think it's about liberating the people of Iraq.It's about preventing weapons that are powerful enough to kill thousands of people from getting into the hands of terrorists.We finally have a president that has enough balls to ACT first instead of REACT after the fact.Saddam has been given 12 years to comply with the UN and he continues to defy them.You say he's destroying some of his missles.So what...what about the weapons that you don't see.You ask why now?I say why not now?How many more years should we give him?Should we wait until he gives terrorists some chemical weapons to use on us.Will that be enough proof for you then?
I say for once let's take the offensive,don't wait til it's too late.
In a matter of a month.Saddam will be a bad memory,there will be 1 less avenue for terrorists to get weapons and the people of Iraq will begin a new and better life.How can you say that's not a good thing?
My country,My president and My Armed Forces have my total support!

B757300: Some hate Bush because they hate any time a Republican is successful.
Successful??? With what, exactly?
And hate? Hardly. I haven´t hated a person in my life, and even GWB won´t get me started. But the disasters that are following him around wherever he steps don´t have me thrilled, exactly.
Klaus: "Hail, Imperator!" would seem more appropriate from your statement...
EA CO AS: Kinda fitting that a German came up with that one....
Yes, it is indeed. Hardly any other nation has seen the horrors brought about by manipulation of emotions, replacement of arguments with emotions, war as a way of boosting the collective ego and finally abuse of unconditional obedience as closely as we have. For a german, it´s impossible to see statements like the one above without recognizing the parallels.
N312RC: He's my president.
N312RC: We voted him in.
No. The supreme court did.
N312RC: He's all we've got.
No. The USA have much, much more substance than that.
N312RC: I respect the office.
Nothing wrong with that. I do, too.
N312RC: So why dont you respect my opinion?
I respect it, but whenever I hear declarations of unconditional allegiance towards a national leader pushing for war, I will vehemently criticize them nevertheless. Criticism has nothing to do with a lack of respect; It is a necessity in a democracy. Especially when the blood of innocent civilians is about to be shed.
N312RC: You can disagree and groan about it all you want, but nothing you say will make any difference.
That should not be true in a democratic society.
Apathoid: When this is over and he is proven right, you will still sit in your comfortable homes spouting your mindless hatred sleeping under the blanket of freedom that our Armed Forces provide.
Criticism has nothing to do with "hatred", not even when you´re not able to deal with it.
And what exactly will you do if
- there is massive bloodshed among civilian iraqis in the bombings
- the occupation forces should somehow fail to find evidence of WMD?
Apathoid: Shame on all of you....
If your shame is to be assigned for proceeding on the peaceful path to disarmament which your president has just announced to destroy, I´ll bear it as a badge of honor.
: I Support President Bush cuz thats my duty as a US citizen....... Duty? What is America coming to? This guy sounds like an average Iraqi who feels he
