What Pisses me OFF (Not having the commitment to win a war once we go to war)

I think Haig is right we either should leave Iraq (that doent look to be an option) or we go win the war and do it properly. This current situation is going to end up like Vietnam if we let it. If you remember what happened last time the loss in Vietnam swept in the all the liberal BS from which we never recovered.

Bush needs to kick start his term. He should sack Rumsfeld and Cheney and bring on real military experience into both jobs. Cheney is a crook and Rumsfeld doesnt listen to his military. Then bring draft and send 500,000-1,000,000 into battle and throw everything we have at Syria and Iran. I am sick of this country fighting on it knees. This might scare the shit it out of some people but its actually allot lot less risky to do this properly. If this is really an argument between religous freedom and the religious state (shai) then lets put an end to the religous state. Are we really ending tryanny and promoting democracy if we encourage a hybrid Islamic democracy where the "state and religion" are married together , thats not democracy how can democracy exist where there are religous leaders watching over the shoulders of elected officials.

If you really want to end tyranny you can't go half way.

If it really is America's destiny to do this then we have to step up to the plate or retire , we are currently living in geo politcal no mans land and its never going to get better until we choose a direction. I lived through WW2 there is a big difference between how we all pulled together then and how we have gone to war this time.

BOSTON Mar 11, 2006 (AP)— Former Nixon adviser Alexander Haig said Saturday military leaders in Iraq are repeating a mistake made in Vietnam by not applying the full force of the military to win the war.

"Every asset of the nation must be applied to the conflict to bring about a quick and successful outcome, or don't do it," Haig said. "We're in the midst of another struggle where it appears to me we haven't learned very much."

The comments by Haig, Nixon's chief of staff and also a secretary of state under President Reagan, came at a conference at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum examining the Vietnam War and the American Presidency.

The conference brought together advisers from the Nixon, Johnson and Kennedy administrations, and talk turned to Iraq where the panelists saw parallels with Vietnam.
