Sally and Dima, the U.S. is going to be portrayed as killers no matter what we do. We wanted to help and we had good intentions. Dima, you said you agreed about going into Iraq, but things didn't go as smoothly because there are people there who don't give a crap about killing innocent Iraqi civilians. In fact, they are doing it on purpose to create instability and they are hoping for a civil war.

The woman on the bus you spoke of is probably not enjoying this craziness going on right now. Unfortunately, if we left right now someone may come in and make Iraq their own. We don't want Iraq, and we don't want one of it's crazy neighbors taking it over either. It needs it's own military that will be able to kick anyone's butt, including the U.S. if they try to take Iraq.

You mention why don't we go in and help Palestinians. First of all, how can we be wrong for trying to help Iraqi people and criticized for not helping Palestinians? Why did the Palestinians vote in Hamas? That's like voting in al-Qaeda for your government, but I guess that's how their people want it. That's the future they chose for themselves. There's nothing we can do when they want to be led by terrorists.

I have said the cartoons were not right. I'm not saying that was good for the cartoonist from Denmark to do that. But I do say those actions are definitely not nearly as bad as what Muslims do to eachother. Just recently, one of Iraq's most cherished Mosques was bombed. It was sickening. Where is the Muslim outrage? Surely this is more disrespectful than a cartoonist's drawings. It just seems so out of whack to protest and kill for over two weeks all over the world due to drawings, but as long as it's Islamist to Islamist blowing up eachother then it's fine. That just doesn't make sense to me.
