CommanderShroom _______ yes I know there are many good Americans out there as demonstrated by some of the people on this forum. But the truth is the people of America choose these politicians to represent them. So when America makes a decision its what the people of America want. so indirectly its you who went to Iraq.

Yeah you can't just leave and have a beer but you can have an exit stradegy. This is slowly becoming the case in the Us goverment but I think if Bush vetos another exit stradegy I think the American Government should start the impeachment process - because then it becomes an issue of all the American people vs. one mans stupid ego.

Steve, I think you missed the point of CP's post. And, much as I despise Bush and Cheney, an impeachment proceeding would get us nowhere. For one thing, he's a lame duck. For another, it's too late.

I am thinking of Roman history, and it makes me sad.

As far as what soldiers are protecting the US from, well, what are Canadian soldiers protecting Canada from?

Apparently you don't get it.

What I am trying to say and what you are unfortunately missing completely, is that should have, could have, would have, are among the most idiotic lines in the world.

The mistake in one part does lay on the heads of the voting public, but in their defense the average person has been worked into a foaming mouthed frenzy. Never debate with the irrational, it won't work. If you don't believe me, I'll introduce you to my ex-wife.

And WRT to idea of impeachment. We are in a shitbox balance in the legislative branches. Nothing will be accomplished. Ideologues are useless when it comes to honest compromise. So whatever one side does, be assured it will be trumped by the other. Typical stuff.

OKAY

Whatever - I didn't feel like posting in this topic anyways because it was a sour topic from the beggining for me but CP made a direct response to my comment and I had to say something in my defense.

Overall the American government is stupid - and no matter what you say you can't defend that. I'm not saying the people in America are stupid (well some are - for reference go watch the episode of Top Gear where they go into the southern states with there painted cars).

What is Canada's army defending Canada from - the short answer is nothing - we are part of NATO and when NATO says that there is a threat to average people like you and me around the world no matter what country they are in - we help NATO in eliminating that specific threat without going to war with a country.

Maybe this topic will die again.

Okay...the American government is not stupid. The heads of it are...Bush, Cheney, Condi, and whatever other warmongers you want to name. The whole of the government is not stupid, though...congress is trying to change things...Bush is just a stupid jerk and is dead set on being Daddy's Little War Criminal.
