#1 No offense, but posters who said President Bush was creating a Teheran colony in Iraq, weren't treated too friendly on the Patriot blogs.

No offense taken, Boss Hupusorong4750. When it comes to prophesying, most of us are likely to be wrong, many for reasons unnoticed or misunderstood at the time. The question that has to be asked in retrospect is, was it better to do what we did and obtain this undesirable result, or do nothing and have more of the situation that then obtained? Also, was there the political capital to do the things necessary to have avoided the current situation?

#3 do nothing and have more of the situation that then obtained? That may not be actual result of doing nothing. The other side has options other than "more of the same."

#4 If the base situation is that sooner or later a Democrat President will give up any advances won on the battlefield by a previous American one, is there any point to fighting any wars at all, or any point to having an army, or anyone enlisting, or even the US going on as a unified country?
