I'd say that politics is a dangerous subject when you've got as many nations on the forum as this one has, frankly Smiley

Since I live in Israel, what I can say is: Every terrorist we arrest/kill/exile/ just stop him is good. But since I got missles on my head in the Golf War, I prefer Saddam in prision/electrical chair soon.

Living in the U.S., it was interesting to see the comedians' take on things early on.  David Letterman had one joke that I thought was funny (no longer on his website):

Paraphrased from memory:

Dave: "Saddam's capture gives some political backing to the current administration for next year's election, and I was wondering what kind of spin the Democrats might put on it until I saw this campaign commercial:"
[picture of unshaven saddam on the screen (bushy white beard)]
Generic Announcer: "The Bush administration revealed that they are holding a man in custody that they _claim_ is Saddam..."
"Or is he?"
[picture of unshaven saddam on the screen (bushy white beard) - with added, hand-drawn red coat and red pointy hat with white fur trim]
"Bush Arrested Santa"
[picture of Howard Dean]
"Vote Howard Dean for President"

That joke pokes fun at everyone involved. Smiley

Funny how it goes... I stopped posting when topics like this were fiercely debated - now I'm back and we're talking politics again  Grin

Can't say that I don't like it. Otherwise, I'm just glad to be back!

Greetings to all fellow Earthlings (yes, yes: and the Alliance Members...)

good old dave letterman. hes a funny guy. i do love his top 10 list. another show to watch for its political satire is "saturday night live". some of dana carey's "bush/senior" imatations are really funny. he even got invited to a luncheon with the old president, to do his char impersonation. funny stuff.

Try this:

You know that google.com is a pretty good search routine.

Try entering the following sentence:

miserable failure

and do a random search. What pops up? (Even if you search the net normally, the first site shown is quite a surprise!)

Going back on topic here (despite GM's best tries to steer us towards miserable failures), it'll certainly be interesting to see what kind of impact (if any) this has on the Iraqi resistance. Will this take the fight out of them, will it enrage them further, or will it have no effect?

Maybe you should ceck the nest before date on them? Could be, they get too old, left out in al lthat sun, well POOF! Freshness and hygene are important.

But that really has nothing to do with the saddam situation. Israel is a topic all in itself, if you want it discussed, I'd recommend opening anew topic for it. otherwise this'll just degenerate into a shoutfest.

Yes you are right, but you are wrong too. It has a major effect about the situation here, he is "a god for them"(I think these were the words the News Reporter used...) But if you want to stay in Iraq, fine.

all the talk i hear of in the usa, is tha americans are still dying. at least one a day. i do support my troops, but this lack of any real evidence of "weapons of mass destruction" really makes me think this war is just a father/son fued (bush/bush jr).

"look at me daddy, i did what you couldnt do in your 4 year term!"

this leads me down another topic, limiting one person from a family to becoming president. so this so called "bush" dynasty would not happen. but thats just my opinion.

Americans are still dying, but at this point there really isnt an alternative, sadly enough. It is impossible for the US tio pull out at this stage, seeing as that would plunge a country they have taken responsibility for into darkness and oblivion.

While the price you folks pay is high, it is the only thing you can do right now.

As for the dynasty question, I don't think there is anything wrong with building a dynasty. The problem with them are just the same as with all monarchies. Some rulers are good, others not quite so brilliant. And you never know what you are going to get.

That would put a big damper on Senetor Clinton's desires for the presidency.  Don't forget that there were a few "Dynasties" in the formative years of the U.S.A.  They weren't real dynasties, since they were seperated in years, and the "father" presidents weren't placing their sons into office via excecutive order.
