Is bush insane enough to do this?

United States
January 7, 2007 7:58am CST
Now that we have killed countless numbers of soldiers in Iraq, and we continue to fight in Afghanistan, soldiers are running out, Bush's plan was idiotic and has failed, but he is so stubbornly persistent he refuses to accept his failure, but will only dig a deeper hole into this mess, by now requiring 20,000 more soldiers to be stationed in Iraq, now let me see, where is he goign to get the troops from. You need to get them from somewhere, maybe he has the audacity to recall soldiers who have been sent back home, or even worse pull a draft, and force people to go to war. But then again his approval ratings are miserably low, I doubt he wants to piss off any more people. But you never know, this guy is completely nuts. What do you think?

The madness continues. The word is out. The 20 or 30 thousand troops now being quoted are likely to be escorting oil off of the premises under the noses of Iraqis. The Iraqis meanwhile will be doing what? Will we still be calling them terrorists and insurgents? http://news.independent.co.uk/world/middle_east/article2132574.ece "The 'IoS' today reveals a draft for a new law that would give Western oil companies a massive share in the third largest reserves in the world. To the victors, the oil? That is how some experts view this unprecedented arrangement with a major Middle East oil producer that guarantees investors huge profits for the next 30 years " Oh dear, Mr Bush. What will you tell the people?

More America bashing? This is really becoming quite tedious. President Bush made a stand against the terrorists in this world, as he was the one in power in America at the time. I, for one, believe he had to do something, because if he didn't, the rest of the world would still be arguing that he should have done. You will never get everybody to agree with what a polititian does. Here, Tony Blair joined forces with him, against the feelings of a lot of British citizens, but I agree he did the right thing in uniting with America. I know a lot of soldiers have been lost, both from the States and Britain, but those soldiers entered the military knowing that they might have to defend their countries, and now, all the opposers can do is call Bush a murderer. So, what if he steps down from power. What do you think the next President might do to avert the attrocities of the terrorists? The Iraqui people who came under the Hussein Hammer, and lost men, women and children in their thousands under Hussein's rule, were initially grateful to Bush and Blair, but now, the worm has turned, and they want their country back, but still, the killings of Iraqui civilians goes on, and the troups are left in to try and keep some kind of order. Not our business? Well, if we pull out, the country will go back to what it was, and the terrorists will start up again in their attack on both the States and Britain, and perhaps even other parts of the world. No, I don't think Bush is crazy... I think he did what he thought he should, morally. There are chemical warfare weapons in Iraq, somewhere, which I believe to have been stashed away somewhere. In Afghanistan, we still have the Bin Laden, leading a band of terrorists. So, let's stop the Bush and Blair Bashing and accept the fact that all they were doing was standing up for their countries and the Iraqui civilians' rights. It's a bit like Britain's interference in Northern Ireland. The warring there will go on and on, and nobody will actually stop it, but things have improved with the presence of British Troups, even though we have lost a number of soldiers to the cause. If you think you can do better... then go ahead, but I can't see you lasting two minutes in power. Ban the bashing!!!

It's your perogative to disagree with me. That's what these discussions are for, so that people can freely air their opinions. It wouldn't work if we all agreed. We'll just have to beg to differ, huh? Brightest Blessings. :-)

A draft never has been, never will be in the plans of this administration. In fact the only draft talk that has come up was brought up by Charles Rangel... a NY Democrat. In FY 2006, The US Army actually surpassed their recruiting goal. There is no reason for a draft.

And pay the Iraqis to rebuild too. It'd still be cheaper and more effective.

Good comment, but don't you think that would be seen as admitting defeat. The Iraquis have to learn to live in peace before they can rebuild anything.

I disagree with you. There have been several posts that state exactly what I want to state, so suffice to say that not all Americans are Bush bashers. This topic has been beaten down to the core don't you think? A quick search in the top left hand corner will bring about at least a hundred or more of the same topics that you just posted, which is something strictly forbidden by mylot. People should do a search first before starting the same redundant discussion over and over. That is a good way to get your discussion deleted and money removed.

I'm sure there are hidden agenda why your President stubbornly refused to pull back american soldiers. Who are very stupid to take care other people country by killing own citizens in name of democracy and justice. Why only certain countries your President are very worried? I don't think new President will pull back soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan.

He has been stupid enough to get us into this position but I think now he realizes that we will look weak if we pull out and that terrorists will come after us if we look weak. Basically, we're now between a rock and a hard place. But then, who's to say they wouldn't have continued coming after us anyway, they've been doing it for years, apparently nobody really wanted to notice it. He just escalated it to the point where we had to take notice. Maybe his motto is: "Let's just get it over now". What was it he said? "Bring it on?"

I don't like political discussion, it's usually a no win discussion lol. Bush didn't go in to "fight terrorism". He was continuing what daddy didn't finish, that's all it is. He was just looking for an excuse to invade Iraq, and he pulled a bunch out of his rear and did it. Another thing to think about, look who's profiting off this war. I don't agree with what he did, but it's done now, and we cannot just walk away and say here ya go, we destroyed your country you fix it. I also don't think we need to be sending over 20,000 more of out troops. He's gonna have to recall a bunch of guys and gals to go back, maybe for their 3rd, 4th, or even 5th deployment. That's just wrong, they can go back and look at the soldiers from Vietnam and see what can happen. I don't think a draft will ever fly again in this country. And I really don't think he cares about pissing anyone off here either. It all boils down to greed & the fact that he's a complete idiot. Repulican government, democratic government, doesn't matter, we're screwed regardless. They're crooks, liars, thieves, you name it. I have no respect for any of them. AND, you know what's real scary??? Is Jeb Bush next in the clan for a presidency? Lived in Florida for 6 years, and I personally thought he sucked as well.

Yes bush is insane and i really dislike him hes screwed this country over royally and like you say where is he gonna get these troops ? i really dont know im glad it was 20,000 because i had heard 30,000 the other day but yeah i dont know i just think this war is dumb we are never gonna pass of the values that we're trying to onto this culture and we are foolish for thinking we can because theyve been around for thousands of years and when you compare us to them we're still a baby of a nation. And as far as making them a democracy , we arent even truely a democracy . And as far as how long we're gonna be in iraq well i couldnt tell you but its gonna be at least till bush is out of office but then again with the way he passes new laws he might manage to find away to stay in office for a lot longer then we all want him too . but who knows i just wish hed resign like he did from so many other companys.

President Bush...where to start, lets not forget that not only are American Soldiers dying in Iraq but many many many Iraq citizens, innocent people are dying in the cross fires, included poor innocent children. I believe the next 2 years is going to continue in this way, Bush must know now what a mistake he has made, anyone who calls Saddam an evil Dictator must also admit that Bush is now the exact same, unfortunatly i do believe there will soon be a draft as the US will eventually run out of soldiers. Bush will never stop, he is a racist man who hates muslims and wants to see all muslims die, I am muslim therefore oppose Bush 100% and his racist views, look and Katrina how many African Americans were left behind to die, Bush doesnt care unless your a white Christian!!!!

Well it seems like the most reasonable thing to do would be to simply call the reserve. The only problem is exactly what you said about his approval ratings, but again why would he care if it's his last term either way??

Bush has positioned our country in a war that is "unwinnable!" There is nothing left for us to determine whether we have won or not. when we (Bush and his lot) displayed the sign, "Mission Accomplished" almost 3 years ago, we've had thousands of American deaths since then...how is that a "mission accomplished????" What a joke. Bush is the worst president in the history of our country and that is a fact.

I do think Bush is insane enough to call a draft, but only if it was necessary two years ago, he's too close to the end of his term now and it probably isn't good for any kind of rating toward him. He is very stubborn, and I for one do not agree with this war......I know all the facts that have been presented to us as citizens concerning this war, but I dont think it's necessary.....I have no idea where he'll get more troops from.....thats making me wonder.....and as stubborn as he is.....he'll do what he can to keep this war going......he really should be spending the Us's money, and people to find Bin Laden, let the Iraqi's take care of their own government.....let them do what they do......and we'll do what we do.....and sign an agreement to it and be done.....to each his own.....let them live the way they want.....were allowed over here to do that......so they should be left....but isn't that ironic....thats one of the reasons they have terrorized us....cause of the way we live....our beliefs, and we are over there trying to change the way they live and their beliefs......

I have never liked our president and i think us being over there from the get go is stupid. We spend so much money on war when we could be spending it at home, where we our selves have problems. Public schools are falling apart here, we have crappy healthcare, roads, the homeless..its sick..we've lost more people in iraq than what we lost in those towers..what did it help. We are fighting a lost cause over there, those people dont want help. I say we quit wasting our time, our tax dollars, and innocent lives and just leave..if they wanna fight and kill each other...go right ahead ITS NOT OUR PROBLEM ..they dont want to be helped and bush forcing it on them isnt helping any.
