D'Rat Cowardice In the Middle East:
Bush Refuses To Intervene, Some Rep. Senators Ask Him To Resign...
Am I naiive here ? My entire life, it's always been the sitting President's "duty" to call for a cease-fire/truce/peace in a war along with diplomacy. I am absolutely astonished that, so far, no one has seriously taken him to task publicly for being so insanely aloof. What is it going to take for Republican senators with intact brains to go to the White House and ask him to resign ? Yeah, I know we'd get Darth Cheney but at least we'd force him out of that damn bunker for a while. (steve2470)
What If... We Never Went To War In Gulf War One?
I heard a woman bring this concept up on KGO one night about 2 years ago. Had we not went to the Gulf War the first time under Pappy Bush, Bin Laden would not have been pissed enough to want to terrorize the U.S. That is WHY he bombed us several times he said. That we set soldiers on holy land. What would have happened if we had let Kuwait fight it's own war against Saddam? More than likely they would have still won with the help of Sandi Arabia. Nothing good has come out of us being there. Especially since Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11 and we attacked it pre-emptively. Now Isreal and other countries think it's ok to attack first.

To End Terrorism, Unjust Military Occupation Must Stop
You want to end terrorism? End unjust military occupations. By all means have Syria conduct an orderly withdrawal from Lebanon if that is what the Lebanese public wants. But Israel needs to withdraw from the Golan Heights, which belong to Syria, as well. The Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank must be ended. The Russian scorched earth policy in Chechnya needs to stop. Some just disposition of the Kashmir issue must be attained, and Indian enormities against Kashmiri Muslims must stop. The US needs to conduct an orderly and complete withdrawal from Iraq. And when all these military occupations end, there is some hope for a vast decrease in terrorism. People need a sense of autonomy and dignity, and occupation produces helplessness and humiliation. Humiliation is what causes terrorism. (cynatnite)
