Simply because I speak out against the war in Iraq, I’ve been called “liberal”, “leftist”, “anti-American” and even “traitor”. I assure you that I am none of these things but, oh well, they’re “right” and I’m wrong. But I’m in good company because the majority of my fellow American citizens are also against the war. The right-wing claims that people with anti-war views are not rational and that we ignore the facts but if you read any of the articles below, you will see many facts presented.
Tomorrow, Bush will give yet another speech telling everyone how well things are going in Iraq. Here are some articles that you will find very enlightening.
My articles concerning Iraq:
Al Gore on Iraq, both before and after the illegal invasion. If only his wisdom would have prevailed...
Obama’s Iraq Speech in 2002…
Ron Paul's 2002 Iraq Speech…
And another voice of rationality and reason...

|I believe that all would agree that war is a horrible thing.
“All” except the war profiteers.
Immediate withdrawal prior to stabilization would create a vacuum of chaos.
Iraq is already in the midst of a civil war, thanks to the illegal U.S. Invasion and occupation. Wake up! Things are already at a “chaotic” stage in Iraq.
“it is an indisputable fact that the surge is working.”
Any decreased level of violence in Iraq is directly attributable to the following:
1)al-Sadr called for a cease-fire.
2)Sunnis have turned against al-Qaeda.
If either of these two things unravel, you will see how well the so-called “surge” is working.
Good try, attempting to re-define yourself as a victim in your header. A transparent vie for sympathy indeed.
I have only stated the truth … sorry you are unable/unwilling to handle it.

|When we are one day hushed up for merely or "foolishly" expressing our opinions, political or otherwise, we may as well be living in Cuba or North Korea or Shanghai. Vive free speech! Long live inalienable rights (and the other stuff in our sacred Constitution) I say!

|For anyone to think you are less patriotic than anyone else just because you are against the war is silly - People want the best for the country they live in|

|I believe that all would agree that war is a horrible thing. Unfortunately we are at war, and this is a war that needs to be won. Immediate withdrawal prior to stabilization would create a vacuum of chaos. I know a lot of other Independents and Dems who understand this and that it is an indisputable fact that the surge is working.
Things are not as black and white as you espouse in your constant attacks and ramblings against the so-called evil "Right". Good try, attempting to re-define yourself as a victim in your header. A transparent vie for sympathy indeed. I am a moderate Independent and you have lashed out at me calling me a "fascist" for correcting your erroneous claims.
Also, it ridiculous to believe that that if either of the Dem candidates were to win the general election, they would call for immediate withdrawal. It makes for good campaign rhetoric to rally the fringe of their constituency, though in truth, it is doublespeak. The stability of Iraq is not just important to the USA, it is important to the world.
FYI - Al Gore on May 23, 2000 told AIPAC:
...as long as Saddam stays in power, there can be no comprehensive peace for the people of Israel...or the Middle East. We have made it clear that it is our policy to see Saddam Hussein gone.
While he was vice-president, he also said that there was "no doubt Saddam Hussein is amassing weapons of mass destruction." It was Clinton who first "invaded" Iraq in 1998.
This war had the overwhelming support of both the Senate and the House. Funny how politicians flip so quickly when it suits their personal agenda, and how the public suffers a case of convenient amnesia.
