    The only way that will happen is if/when the Neo-Con junta vacates the country.

    Not sure about that. Problem is that right now the US have stripped the iraqi people of what little protection/authority there was. Leaving now will just subject them to a take over by the strongest warlord(s).

    The need to fulfill their duty - get the constitution working, get the police force up and running etc.

    It's a mess - a total and utter mess.

    Some of us predicted this two years - and now it looks like civil war in Iraq is in the making.

    Vietnamisation of Iraq is an American issue.

    I am more concerned about Iraq and it's people instead of what is happening to American soldiers and American politicians.

    The Iraqi people have been duped by George Bush and America.

    According to the latest figures I've seen, there are only about 3000 Iraqi "police" that are actually trained and ready to do anything, so at this rate, it'll take 80-100 years to have enough to secure the country. It's not going to happen with the various factions fighting for control.

    The best-case is that the U.S. and others get out, period. The Iraqi's will simply have to duke it out for themselves, because they DO NOT WANT US THERE!

    Why what a brillant reply....You must have stayed up night on that one.....I'm sorry but I just don't see Abu grab-ass as torture. There is worst hazying on American colleges than that happend there. If a little embrassment or sleep deprivation saves one Iraqi, British or American life then so be it. Why don't you just you the use the same tired liberal line that the prison is just like a Nazi death camp.....Why do you want his head on platter? So you and your WURMY friends can have a place to live......Bite Me....Your friend always...Mikey

    What are you "right" about :confused: (& I'm not referring to your political association.) Iraq has proven to be a training ground for future terrorist's & a killing field for American servicemen. Bush started something that he can't finish at a cost of two American death's/day (minimum). :mad:There's a difference between supporting the presidency as an "institution" & supporting a "particular" president who has misled the citizenry. This president has proven himself to be reckless w/ American lives purely to enrich his energycorp. buddies :(

    i dont agree with what bush is doing, he is as much a terrorist as most of the extremists out there.

    however in australia we are trying to deal with extremists who preach against our way of life one muslim leader even went as far to say that muslims CANNOT be a freind of a non muslim, another said osama bin laden is a good man. id hate too sound harsh but if you come into a country u abide by the rules and if its soo bad here then go back to youre own country. soon australia is going to be overtaken by arabs and asians if the government doesn't control the immigration.

    its only a matter of time until a muslim puts a terrorist attack on our country which is a shame because most muslims are good people but you cant hav too many in a country that does not neccasarily abide by there religion.

    The day that happens i dont think they will be welcome in our country not by me anyway.

    thats my rant for the day. muslims should go back to arab land asians back to asia land bush should send his troops home and we can worry about ourselves. and yes i am racist. but not a violent one.

    MPro - don't go there!!! Can you imagine the SORRY parade you'd start?

    US would have to apologise to the indians.
    Aussies would have to aologise to the aborigones.
    New Zealand - Maoris.
    White South Africans - Black South Africans
    UK - just about everybody on the planet
    Germans - jews
    Everybody would have to apologise to the french ;)
    US - japanese for little boy.

    Hmmm would everybody have to apologise to africans cos that's where life started?

    Ahhh politics - fifty million 'facts' and fifty trillion opinions.....

    Ah, the apologist strikes back...

    The point is that there is no conclusive evidence that they are making
    bombs. The only people making those claims are the same people who
    claimed that Iraq were working on nukes, the same people are over-
    uling the information that their own intelligence analysts and experts
    are telling them (again).

    Here you are telling us that we should trust these people *again* and
    accept a few hundred thousand more dead Arabs as a price worth
    paying. You can stick it.

    You must go through life with your eyes closed and your fingers in your
    ears. There was an incident where enlisted officers beat the shit out of
    a taxi driver chained to the ceiling while he begged for his life over a
    period of 24 hours. That is just *one* incident of hundreds that are
    or have been under investigation. It is a certainty that many similar
    incidents will go un-reported and un-investigated.

    They've got a very funny way of doing it. Destroying the infrastructure,
    then not rebuilding it and stirring up a civil war in the process is a big
    cock up on that front.

    No one has a problem with the stars and stripes. They have a problem
    with the pillocks and apologists who subscribe to the slaughter of
    innocent Arabs by the hundreds of thousands. You could wear pink
    for all I care and I would still be tempted to break your neck in the
    interests of world peace. :)

    What darkboong just said.

    I thought it was pretty obvious by now, but apparently not to crithater and Mikey, et al. How stupid can you guys get??

    "While war is a terrible thing, there are times when war must be fought."

    During WWII perhaps that statement was true, but not today in Iraq or Iran.
