I have often thought the war in Irac is winable. It's simple really. Bush calls in his generals and gives them one order, WIN THE WAR, then government turns its back excepting to supply funding. I do believe the war would then be over in short order and the world would gain a whole new respect for our resolve, which right now is sorely lacking!

Bear in mind, the purpose is not to provide freedom or democracy for anyone, that they must accomplish on their own. Our goal should be to put the world on notice that WE WILL NOT BE ATTACKED WITHOUT ABSOLUTE RETALIATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

''Basically I have doubts about the premises and goals of our current engagement. Does that mean I don't support our troops? No way. I think they are doing a hell of a job, given the operating conditions. I do think they deserve leaders that give us realistic goals for the outcome in Iraq though. However I have no idea where this newly elected U.S. congress will help in the matter. I wish Bush and his staff were smarter.''

That's about the way I feel about it too.

NOONE can beat the USA on a level battlefield! That's a MOOT ISSUE! But.....we do not know how to fight an event aka WAR....that is totally clandestine in nature! When Bush gave away the secret that WE were not going to fight an ALL-OUT WAR.....such as fought in WWII where we killed the old/young/infirmed/battle troops/etc. that was as much as telling the TERRORIST that they had already won! This will not occur UNTIL we lose a couple of cities to NUCLEAR BLAST and the American "Pussyfoot Public" understands that this is a WAR OF SURVIVAL!

One cannot win a war by being POLITICALLY CORRECT! Maybe my grandchildren will do a better job than the current generation.....if they manage to survive!! Cry Cry

RMulhern, would you like some xanax? It'll help you relax and think more clearly. I never said anything about political correctness or ''pussyfooting'' or anything related to the nuclear blasting of American cities. I selected the part of his post that was closest to my own feelings on the matter, and it is that part of his post that appears with quotation marks above my line:

''That's about the way I feel about it too.''

No, what you did was act on your uncontrollable, narcissistic urge to ram your opinions down others' throats. The fact that you irrationally overreacted to my previous statement strongly supports this. I suspect that you are not capable of recognizing the difference between your opinions and actual facts.

The whole ''Captain_Oblivious'' thing is a tad eighth-grade, don't you think? lol

If you don't like the post I write......you have a really good option! Don't read 'em; really simple! I say exactly what's on my mind at the time.....Captain Oblivious......so I really don't give a FONK.....what you think! I would imagine that most people on this forum have enough intellect to discern fact from fiction so I'll not impose on their intellect for your benefit! I suggest you TAKE A HIKE!!

If I were to, by some quirk of fate, choose to reject your suggestion of taking a hike, what would be the consequences, or lack thereof?

It is not a matter of me liking or disliking the posts you write; however, I fail to understand why you have this extremely inflated sense of grandiosity and entitlement. Think

Additionally, although I am appreciative of your addressing the intellect of the other posters, that is very good that you recognize others' potential, I don't see how I would benefit from you imposing on their intellect. It's not your ability to discern fact from fiction that is in question but rather it is your belief that your own personal views are facts written in stone that must be agreed with by all.

There's no shame in considering seeking help, these types of personality issues can lead to social problems and even family difficulties. You may actually feel better for accepting the possibility of a problem and doing something about it.
