Democrats are pushing for our retreat from Iraq. But we, the United States, will not be the ones surrendering in this part of the war on terror - Iraq will.

It is clear the Democrats think the United States of America is the sole source of terrorism in the world. It is also clear that Democrats think Iraq is unwilling or unable to protect itself. The least we should do when we are in retreat is have Democrats negotiate the terms of surrender with Iraq's enemies.

Democrats should negotiate with the terrorists groups inside and outside Iraq, and with countries like Syria and Iran. Like the Vietnam War, this does not have to be a sincere deal on the terrorist's part. Democrats will negotiate for political expediency for their own short term political gain despite the risk that Iraq will fall deeper into civil war and that terrorism will flourish in the Middle East and around the world.

But like I said, as long as the Democrats gain, nothing else matters.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty. Those days are long gone. John Kennedy has been orphaned by his own political party.

It's better to retreat now then see ourselves still there in 20 years. And Iraq was in civil war the day we invaded and ousted Saddam. By staying we only prolonge the inevitable. How can you give someone peace when they don't want you there to begin with?

The days of Communism and the Cold War are over. Don't put JFK out of context.

Finally, a Democrat that is not for peace! So in the long run what you are saying is - give war a chance!

Maybe we should pull ourselves out of South Korea also. We've been there for 50 years after a civil war broke out trying make sure one side doesn't fight the other.

JFK is not out of context when it comes to freedom or about our responsibility for freedom in the world. If you use that same logic we should take Martin Luther King out of all converstions about freedom and responsibility and rescend his national holiday.

After all, that was then and this is now.

I'm a pacifist. Staying in Iraq only increases the amount of terrorism aimed at us. We've lost so much life and destroyed a civilization and nothing's been changed. We forget that democracy can't just spring from nothing. Where's Iraq's middle class? it doesn't exist so therefore democracy can't.

And I don't think the South Koreans would mind that much if we left the Korean peninsula. North Korea knows better than to start a war. It'd invoke the power of the entire world. It's a bad situation there as well but the status quo isn't being threatened on a daily basis and Americans are being killed everyday.
Martin Luther King also stood for non-violence. I don't see that anywhere in Iraq either. Furthermore, the fight for civil rights continues to this day. Meanwhile the Cold War ended in 1991. You have to change your perspective with the changing times. And exactly what gives the US the right to impose its ideas of freedom on others? Democracy doesn't work in every system and we need to respect that.

Are you a Republican robot that believes everything they're fed or are you really just that naive? I respect your opinions but you seem to follow everything by the book. Is there anything you don't agree with that Bush and the neo-cons don't tell you?

"If everybody just had an open mind like a Democrat." What a bunch of BS!

You and the rest of the Democrauts look at our "Americans" as pawns on a political chess board, with your hearts as cold as ice. I have much much more respect for any soldier volunteering for Iraq or Afghanistan than I would have for any elitist party animal barebacking college students siphoning funds from their parents and the American taxpayers.

As far as that stupid statement about North Korea - who in the world is going to stop North Korea if we leave? The rest of the world? With what - their little pop guns? Maybe the world can negotiate so that little pot bellied North Korean pig can speak kind things about everybody and plant daisies and flowers everywhere - instead of making nuclear bombs. You remember nuclear bombs - you guys use to be against the proliferation of these things, until North Korea and Iran started making them.

When the world dials 911 they dial "U-S-A". But not anymore. Thanks to you guys, the psuedo-pacifist Democrats, were getting out of that business. Goodbye, Darfur! World, get the cattle carts and the gas furnaces ready for the next war, because the USA is not coming to the next invite!

And BTW - Freedom IS NOT an imposition. If Martin Luther King where here today, he would tell that to your face. No doubt about it.

Whoa whoa whoa? Where did you get calling me an elitist party animal barebacking college student? That's horrible! How dare you resort to name calling! I'm trying to keep the dialogue civil but you just have to always bring it up a notch don't you? What's wrong? Are you upset that one day people like me will rule this country and will change the entire course of American politics towards something that makes the US on *gasp* equal footing with other countries? Save me the drama.

I'm in favor of making the UN stronger. Let's them settle disputes with us supporting them, not us taking away their power.

And freedom is in the eye of the beholder. Like the saying goes, one man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.
