I don't believe the American public would support military action on Iran, we've got to finish up in Iraq first. I would think its stupid and baseless at the moment because there's more profound enemies and threats like North Korea to fully deal with.

It was stupid and baseless to attack Iraq because there were more pressing issues in Iran and North Korea to deal with and yet, here we are. Don't sell the monkey's ambition short, the source for the article also claimed the administration is making the same prediction they did before Iraq, that all the local arabs would succumb to their deep rooted love for america and joyously welcome you guys as liberators. sh*t like that, that is so far rooted in fantasy and delusion is the scariest part of the Bush administration.

if you prefer, America has already hoplessly failed to acheive their stated objectives in Iraq with the use of their military and only served to further the cause of their enemies. Why would they want to do the same with regards to Iran. I have a prediction. The upcoming Iraqi election will have, 1. no effect at all on insurgency or rate of growth of insurgeny: 40%. 2. Make things much much worse by pissing of shite majority with rigged win for pro-american candidate Allawi and loss for Sistani's pro Iranian dude Hakim: 60% . make things better for U.S: 0%. time will tell.

ok, first of all, we are definatly NOT losing the war in iraq. it is hard to fight a war on terrorists. they are not people, they are animals. they use innocent people as shields and decoys. it was the same in 'Nam. which we didnt take the right strategies to win that war. when you are fighting a bunch of pansies that hide in caves and hospitals, it is best not to put men in danger. just level out hostile territory. and for the war on iran, i dont think we will ever do that. they have nuclear weapons and they aren't afraid to use them. its a lose lose situation. you would have to disarm them before taking any military action.

that was funny, lets see over 1000 casualties in american soldiers, much more Civilians killed ummm... American efforst still havent stopped terrorists from their evil deeds. majority of Iraqi ppl just want the Yanks to get their asses outta there, but of course that has to be winning


Your right, americans arent loosing, neither are terrorists, its a Stale-Mate, the only loosers are those who died in the war

I don't know how anyone can possibly say we are 'losing' the war in Iraq. The Iraqi war has been AMAZING. Although sometimes falling below expectations, look at it relative to every single other war that has ever been fought. We have lost less than 2000 soliders, an AMAZINGLY low number. We took out the sitting government in a matter of months, and have already moved far in establishing a new police and military force and a democratic governement. US officials have very little involvement in, and are certainly not 'rigging' the election. The voting places will be monitored by Iraqi forces, with American men on high alert in surrounding areas. It's funny that with all we have accomplished, you have to resort to denying the legitimacy of the Iraqi run election. Sad.

The only thing I wish we would've done differently is not dismantle the Baathist police and military..if they were still in place, that would help keep some sort of order in the country - just cut off the head by removing Saddam and his sons from power

How can you say America is Not losing in Iraq? The Iraqi freedom fighters or "insurgents" are getting stronger and more effective while America is not. I call that LOSING Remember at the beginning of war Rumsfeld called them 'a bunch of dead enders'? Now look! Remember Bush said “bring em on” well they brought it on . Its clear the “mighty US” can bomb the world into oblivion but they can’t control a small country like Iraq. If the US Bombs Iran that will only make the anti America extremists more powerful. Johns Hopkins University report said 100 000 Iraqis Dead, Mostly women and Children by US bombing , that is an American Source. you really think this will make america safer? America Kills way more civilians than anyone else. while 30 000 feet in the air hiding behind technology.

Um, exactly. Did we win in 'Nam? Someone remind me....

War is not the way it was in WWII. Look at the Korean War and Viet Nam. Things have changed. If you want to look at it politically, Bush I attacked Iraq directly, Clinton did strikes from air and sea (how many casualties?), and then Bush II has given us over 1000 casualties, these beheadings, more hate from the muslim world, and less respect from the rest of the world.

I hate being political because people polarize (Republican/Democrat). But this president is shifty and stupid at the same time (quite the acheivement). Kerry wasn't a great alternative, I don't really stand with any one political party. But our foreign policy is CRAP right now.

If we attack Iran, I hope we don't make the same (or worse) mistakes.
