Is the answer to pull the troops and is Democracy a revenge for terrorism….
We need a strong President to get in their get our troops out of Iraq. We can\’t police the terrorist forever. I hate to say it, but Osama Bin Laden is starting to make some sense. To help rebuild Iraq is one thing, but they will forever lose the confidence of the serene and terrorist by occupying the place indefinitely. Besides the economy is weak so having a war doesn\’t make it stronger, only the agents of war get stronger from the actors of war. Moreover, the Americans\’ have lost more soldiers in World War I, World War II, Korean Conflict (Cold War Phases I, II, and III), then anyother nation. The enemy uses intelligence, like what color your hair is, what you will probably do tomorrow, if you even picked a bugga. I don\’t want anyone knowing about my peoples, because I want them to live and stay a live.
Anyway, this war is a judgement on America. Until it learns to treat African Americans better then they do, then many nations will continue curse more than bless this Nation. Does this nation have what it takes to remain a superpower or even to exist another 200 years is to be determined, the Muslims are getting stronger since the Christians\’ put them down in the Byzantine period, so we will see if the religious fervor will come back with a haunting vengenece to bight.
Mr. Edwards, the former senator from North Carolina who is waging a populist campaign for the Democratic nomination, said that extending the American training effort in Iraq into the next presidency would require the deployment of tens of thousands of troops to provide logistical support and protect the advisers.
“To me, that is a continuation of the occupation of Iraq,” he said in a 40-minute interview on Sunday aboard his campaign bus as it rumbled through western Iowa.
The worst, and saddest, job in Baghdad
By Stephen Farrell The New York Times
Sunday, December 30, 2007
It must be a candidate for the worst job in Iraq. It falls to Baghdad\’s street sweepers, who use their bare hands, to pick up the fingertips and scraps of flesh spattered around every bomb site in the Iraqi capital. They do it without gloves, in all but the coldest weeks of winter.
The past year was one that delivered several $8 bonuses to Baghdad\’s municipal cleaners, albeit not as many as in previous years.
It is a welcome sum when your salary is only $6 a day. Less so when you earn it by picking up parts of your fellow Iraqis who were unfortunate enough to be blown apart on your street-sweeping route. Anything within your six-hour shift counts as part of the job.

It was a violation of Pakistani criminal law and prevented a medical conclusion about what killed the former prime minister, said Athar Minallah, a lawyer who serves on the board that manages Rawalpindi General Hospital.
