Just like Vietnam. We pulled completely out of Iraq. All the lives and money gone for what? Now we're pulling out of Afghanistan. Same results. The terrorists will soon take over. We've clearly gone wrong somewhere. For one thing, we must develop our own oil so we don't have to rely at all on the Mideast. That would de-fund the Saudis and others who support terrorism. Maybe we could start paying our debt to the Chinese in oil, natural gas and coal.

Bob,
It was right to pull out of VN, because it was wrong to go there in the first place. Iraq is the same. Afghanistan... We had a reason, but not the congressional authority. We need to get out, and soon, and from all other countries as well.

As to oil, I totally agree, but consider the consequences. Opening domestic reserves will push OPEC to stop valuing its crude in dollars. The dollar has eroded 99% of its value in 99 years. The 1% left is OPEC's use as a measure of oil's value. But again, I agree, tap the domestic capacity, let the dollar crash, switch to gold/silver, and restore prosperity to the US.

Usually, not always, the peace party wins.

Gen. Sherman's burning of Atlanta and March to the Sea ensured Abraham Lincoln's re-election in 1864.

William McKinley, with his triumph over Spain and determination to pacify and hold the Philippines, easily held off William Jennings Bryan in 1900.

Yet Woodrow Wilson won in 1916 on the slogan, "He Kept Us Out of War!" And Dwight Eisenhower won a landslide with his declaration about the stalemate in Harry Truman's war: "I shall go to Korea."

Richard Nixon pledged in 1968 that "new leadership will end the war and win the peace." Vice President Hubert...
