"Re: "Bush was wrong. Republicans are all war mongers and were only there for the oil."

Why do you say such things?" I don't say these things. I say these things are said by the cultural hating, politically correct, cultural marxist lefties who can only mock and deride any and all authority. Trust me the same people will be found whether it's a Dem. or Rep. in the Whitehouse.

I was quite sickened to have to listen to the virulent attacks made upon Rumsfield on the day of his retirement. I don't care whether one agrees or disagrees with any particular strategy of government. There is such a thing as decorum. At least there used to be. It was once considered a moral value.

We thought that we had defeated communism, when all we did was shatter the Soviet UNION. I'm sure that the "commies" knew that they failed as a political ideology long before the Berlin wall came down. But they were successful with their social nihilism and brought that to the west as multiculturalism and political correctness.

They couldn't be our political leaders so they became our educaters. Now they start teaching social nihilism in kindergarten. They have managed to convince us that we are too busy, our time too valuable, to be involved with the matters of everyday things and that they are the people best suited to manage our children's education, to teach them morality and ethics, to be the moderators of opinion. They have infected all media and champion the anti-hero. Please, you don't want me going down this road. Rumsfeld did a good job considering the politics, and he took his responsibility to heart even on the last day going into retirement.

Paul Bremer and the Coalition Provisional Authority(which consisted of 34 countries), the Iraqi Governing Council, and the Iraqi Interim Government get a walk. CNN doesn't even know they exist and certainly not, to use your word, an apparatchik the likes of Wolf Blitzer. America needs better news media.

I hope that you continue to have protection in law and that you will not be forced to means of physical self preservations.
Don't be too hard on the iraqi citizen. If they're lucky enough to have a job they must still survive the walk to work and pray not to be killed by their neighbor or further along down the street. To be kidnapped or raped or charged with heresy. And still make the walk back for dinner at the end of the day and God willing an intact family.

Last night on the news they reported that more and more Americans are turning to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report for their perspective on the news. These are comedy talk show fake news programs. God save America.
Merry Christmas. :-)
