You should have included "WHENEVER THE POLLS SAY THAT IT IS POLITICALLY SAFE FOR HIM TO DO SO" as an option. Gawd he is a limp deeeeeck. And I voted for the bastard.

My guess is he won't. That's a very different war than A'stan.

Around September, possibly October.

You're assuming they've crossed his proverbial line in the sand and that he's done nothing. Watch the media campaign for a while, they're just warming up. After all, they only recently "discovered" Hussein's pay increase to suicide bombers (outrageous! let's go to war). Have a little patience and faith. I don't think he'll cave on the issue. Also, just because many Americans want to go to war with Iraq doesn't mean that we should.

I would think that he would do it before the election (if it is still popular), there is just nothing better to boost a president than a popular war (that we are winning)

Who cares about war,when is GWB going to condem the enron criminals publicly!!!!!!! 1 After they give campaign money 2 After he trys to get iraq,cause his dick head father couldn't do it. 3 When he learns how to speak!!! DUH!!! 4 When he and his kids stop being a drunk!!!! just stating the facts[:D]

Has it occurred to anyone that maybe he's allowing the military to get its sh*t together? Iraq will be tougher than the Taliban, and we'll have less help. Clinton wrecked military readiness. I still think GW's smart by surrounding himself with experienced folks that know, for the most part, what's what. I don't agree with EVERY thing he does or stands for, but I think he's being very presidential and that's refreshing. What's the hurry?

I'll go with very soon. I think it will be somewhat hypocritical to tell the Israelis to stop and then the US go after Sadam but I think he will do it.

I can only hope you are correct. (Something is driving this Iraq mess and I can't figure out what. And no it's not the possibility of weapons of mass destruction but that said I still don't have a clue as to what.)

Okay people, now don't stare at [b]kentstate4[/b]. Some people are just born that way. This is why brothers and sisters shouldn't marry. (he sure plays a mean banjo though) [%|]
3 When he learns how to speak!!! DUH!!!
View Quote
It's "condemn" not "condem" (unless you mean "condom" which is what your father should have worn while mounting his sister to conceive you). And it's "Enron" not "enron", and "tries" not "trys", and "Iraq" not "iraq".
4 When he and his kids stop being a drunk!!!! just stating the facts[:D] ....... and it is congress that makes that decision to declare war not duh GWB for satans sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay - okay. Don't get frustrated!! Now see the little scribbles at the top of the page? Those are called "words". Some people are able to look at those and "READ" them. Someday, some very smart men might come up with a cure for what you have and then maybe you can "READ" too! Wouldn't you like that? Yeah, I thought so. Okay now, let go of Mr. PeePee and put your pants on now. We're going to the ZOO!!! You like the zoo, don't you? [:)]

kentstate4 Your comments will be greatly appreciated at the democratic underground. So go there and put your head back in the sand with the rest of the extreme left wing.

I believe that Bush is already backing off on support for Israel, what with refusing to call Araphat a "terrorist". Makes me question his resolve and commitment to fighting "terrorism", unless it's directly affecting the U.S. What makes anyone think the American dissatisfaction with Iraq is anything more than a whim, a passing fancy, a distraction from episodes of Survivor or the NFL? If there are no more direct attacks on US soil or major US installations, we'll never go to Iraq. War is hell, and *very* expensive, in dollars and American lives. That is not something most people are willing to sacrifice for "somebody they don't identify with who lives way the heck over there in some foreign country I can't even pronounce."

What does "declaring war" have to do with engaging in military action against Iraq? The Gulf War and Operation "Enduring Freedom" were essentially undeclared "wars". The same will happen again with Iraq. It's the 21st Century way of conducting war. BTW [b]libertyof76[/b], why do you oppose military action against Iraq?

And the Consitution is an outdated document too. Attacking another country for their soldiers "throwing babies out of incubators" is a good enough reason alone.

I think the current problems in Israel are forstalling any move against Iraq. Until that quiets down, and the Arab countries get back on our side, we will not attack. I think a campaign through Turkey will be too difficult.

George Bush's Poll numbers are so high right now, I don't see him risking them (soldiers body bags) before the elections. How is the resupplying of Cruise missiles coming along?
