War on Terror lost its direction a long time ago.

The War on Terror has been a staple on elections and congressional decisions for nearly six years. In the 2004 election the Bush administration used there own form of terrorism (the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.)* to scare swing-states into voting red. So if you were told that this large influence on your loyalties was "misguided" where would your loyalties lie now? BBC World News stated today a U.S. senate report said that there are or were no connections between former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussien and Al Qaeda in Iraq. Now with no evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction and no ties with Al Qeada it brings the issue back to an oil war and with a vice-president that has 31 million dollars of haliburton oil money in his back pocket (in case you didnt know Mr. Cheney is the former CEO of Haliburton), and that wouldn't be soo bad if Haliburton wasn't the first company to sign a contract dealing with oil lost in Iraq. So is $3/gallon worth aproximently 4,000 civilian lives lost?

Well, I see where you are coming from, but maybe we(the civilians)dont know everything that the army knows. Maybe there are Weapons of Mass Destruction, but its top secrect. There are a lot of things that the army cant tell us. I really dont know but with the job I would like to have in three years or so I honestly trust Bush and what he is doing. Sometimes you have to have faith in people you dont know. I think Bush has done a great job of leading our country. I dont I guess everyone can have a different oppion because its america and we are free. We should just try and see both sides.

I agree with Tamera yeah to us it might seem that there is nothing over there and we should be coming home. If you think about it there is a lot of stuff we don't know about that out country does it is for our pertection and I think that if there was no reason to be there our troops would have been home.
