in response to reader comment: Black & white

Ya, I'm sorry, but you are wrong about the invasions of Iraq and (especially) Afghanistan. We knew that Osama Bin Laden did it (9/11), and he was in afghanistan, and the Taliban supported him. I don't see how that is an assumption...

Don't get me started on Iraq. We are justified to be in there. Yes people have died, thats what happens in war... I don't see how the Bush administration has done these things for its own self interests? How does that make sense? We still pay the same price for oil. We have lost men, money, etc, etc. The Presidents approval rating is at 35%. How is that self interest? Please, enlighten me.

President Bush was right to go into Iraq. Sure his approval rating is low, but if every president did what the opinion polls said, nothing would ever get done. People are ignorant about Bush and his administration. People seem to forget that we are at war. War. Not some political game. You people should see the movie that came on ABC on Sunday, September 10 and Monday the 11th about The WTC. It shows the truth. We are at war. People forget that. I don't know why. Anyway, I'll let you people dwell on that for awhile.

Raoul.
