<font color="blue">Relatively speaking, inflation is not a problem unless you are talking about health care or tuition and you surely can't pin those on Bush. </font color>


our kids our dying in an
unnecessary war,

<font color="blue">That's a matter of opinion. MacArthur said only the dead have seen the end of war. </font color>

the country is divided,

<font color="blue"> Yeah, we were united when Boy Clinton was Prez. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif </font color>

and I'm trying

<font color="blue">Bush increased federal funding for education by 50% if that's what you're getting at. personally I would abolish the Dept. of Ed. and give the money back to the states and localities. </font color> <hr /></blockquote>

His spelling is not that good, but you can get the drift. These people are watching our election very closely.[ QUOTE ]

Kerry is not a good talker, its just that Bush is not good explainer. He cant explain things well &amp; ppl start to call him fool.

Kerry says he'll bring USA's allies back to USA, but look what Bush has done. He has got his enemies turned into allie e.g: Afghanistan &amp; Iraq. Well not realy allies but USA deosnt have zero support there any longer. Bush should point this out. He should tell Kerry that he has even made allies out of the enemy. He should tell him the country they himuliated during Clinton period, the country called Pakistan, which said that they will no longer be USA's friend r now once again USA's allies &amp; a very importent one. The man they all hated, Perwaiz Musharaf, whom they were saying that should go back to his bunkers is now the front fighter against USA's enemies. He should tell them that Dems are not capable of recoginzing friends. <hr /></blockquote>People in the US tend to disconnect Afghanistan and Iraq, but these are small countries, and the people that live there don't look at it like we do. They are all close neighbors, and what affects one tends to affect them all.

Especially among the younger people, there is a lot of expectations of the US in reforming the region. Even in Iran, the younger people (mainly the ones who are too young to remember the revolution) expect the US to pressure their leaders to reform.

So I don't think the war is a waste. I think that the long term benefits make it imperative. It's going to take another generation before real benefits start to materialize for the people in the ME. My big fear is that the US will not have the determination to see it through, and that the progress made will be lost.

But as my friend Ahmed said, Bush is not a good explainer, and people call him a fool.

It doesn't necessarily mean Bush is doing the wrong thing.

We had a wonderful window of opportunity to establish a foothold in Afghanistan when the Soviets folded...

We threw that opportunity away.

Seems to me that Herr Kerry wants to throw everythign away except for the Oil for Food program.. (great part time money for a politician). Meaning maximum UN involvement in everything the U.S. does overseas...

How on God's Green Earth can anyone believe that the Dems will strengthen the military, the economy, et al... all one has to do is to look at the photograph of the fireman hosing down a black trying to vote to understand (the fireman was a democrat).

Who in heck established and re-inforced civil rights in the country? It certain was not Jesse Jackson, or any redneck southern democratic caucus....

"If you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one." Joseph Goebbels. The National Socialists loved big government - the parallels are there for anyone to see.

He who has the most attorneys wins? Is that what we have come to??
