Opposition to Iraq War Grows

May 30, 2007 at 8:49 pm 6 comments

From the New York Times:

Americans now view the war in Iraq more negatively than at any time since the war began, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Six in 10 Americans surveyed say the United States should have stayed out of Iraq, and more than three in four say that things are going badly there — including nearly half who say things are going very badly, the poll found.

And President Bush still refuses to listen. What is it going to take for him to understand that his war has harmed our military, results in nearly 3,500 American deaths and ten of thousands of American deaths?

    Would six in ten still say America shouldn’t have gone in if things were going better than they are? Can’t help but think the American view is less concerned with the morality of the whole thing than it is about the chance of winning.

    And grows and grows and grows.

    Except amongst the 37 traitor Democratic senators who voted to give Bush another $120 billion dolllars to keep the Iraq war going.

    What needs to happen next is, a bi-partisan, Congressional investigation into which senators are personally profiteering from the U.S. remaining ingaged in Iraq. Senators like California’s Dianne Feinstein, whose husband, Richard Blum, holds controlling interests in a number of defense companies that have helped make the couple millions of dollars thanks to the Iraq war.

    Conflict of interest is ugly and it must be stopped.

    Paul, the point is that Americans are against this war. They now realize that we were lie to, that Bush never had a plan to win and that continuing to send our troops to fight is nothing more than sending more of our troops to be killed. This war must end and American troops must come home.

    Yeah but at one stage most of you still thought that winning would somehow justify the rest following. Don’t care what Americans “now realize”. It was no less wrong then than it is now. I don’t want to hear about how NOW the American people realize they were lied to to. All the information was there and easily available in 2002. 911 or not. Hardly any excuses then, NO excuses now.

    Paul, it doesn’t matter whether or not you want to hear that the American people now realize they were lied to. That is the reality. I wasn’t sucked into Bush’s cowboyesque fantasy of invading Iraq and Middle East and neither apparently were you. Most Americans believe him and now many of those people understand that what we were told is flat out not true.

    I was working in America at the time the invasion occurred. I was aghast at the jingoistic stupidity surrounding me but could say very little for fear of being called a cheese eating surrender monkey or somesuch idiotic rubbish. yeah, it may not matter what I want to hear, and yeah, you’re right, we have to deal with how things are now, but fuck it makes me mad to see all these people who were furiously waving their Chinese made plastic flags four years ago now pissing on about “being lied to”. OK its an observation and I was oh so clever in 02 and all of that, but why is everyone still so pathetic about dealing with this travesty? Why is Bush and Cheney still breathing? Doesn’t your constitution demand that you (as a people) do something?
