New Iraq plan: Impeach Bush now!

  • Follow Letters

President Bush's "new" plan for our troops in Iraq is to gain security of Baghdad and Anbar province with military force. Designated military sectors will be systematically guarded with constant military presence so reconstruction projects can be completed.

It has taken four years of trial-and-error failure to come up with this "new" plan. As we await the response of the insurgency to Bush's new plan, we can predict 100 percent that there will be no unconditional surrender of those who hate the occupation of their country. All of the various factions fighting one another in Iraq consider our military forces an abomination that must be expelled from their country at all costs.

Bush sees a different Iraq in the future. He has made plans for a permanent U.S. military presence in Iraq because he has spent billions of dollars to build American military bases throughout the country. Unless these two diametrically opposing views are reconciled, the killing will continue.

As we approach the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, Bush has gambled his way to this critical stage with one bad decision after another. Why should we wait two more years for better leadership? Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be removed from office now! I call for impeachment hearings to begin immediately. Why wait until 2009 to have a woman president? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will do just fine. She certainly can't do any worse.

If Bush can be stopped, think of the lives we could save in Iraq. If Bush serves out his term, he will slink back to Crawford, Texas, deluded with the idea that democracy can be forced with a bayonet. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me five or six times, shame on me.

God bless our troops and their families.

Larry Jarrett, Warrenville, S.C.

Brilliant Mr. Jarrett. I

Brilliant Mr. Jarrett. I can't wait to hear your new ideas on the theory of relativity. I'll bet it's every bit as good and informed as this one.

Ms. Thomas, or whatever your

Ms. Thomas, or whatever your name is - can't you see what's happening in Iraq, along with what has been going on for the past four years? The death toll is rising, the coutry is falling apart, and it's the United States' fault. You may not believe this, so I guess everyone else in the world is wrong and you are right. One of the biggest flaws in people is the inability to admit mistakes, and you seem to have fallen blindly into this trap. There's no doubt you won't listen, it's a form of personal delusion or brainwashing, but make no mistake - things are going very badly in this war, and one day you will wonder why you were beating the drums in support of this bozo Bush. "W" has sent thousands to their death for nothing! Open your eyes...

Excuse me, but has any one

Excuse me, but has any one stopped to think about what will happen if we do pull out of Iraq permanently? Not only will the insurgents overrun the country and undo what little progress has been made there, but just how long do you think it'll take before we're attacked on our soil again? Do you think that if we leave them to their own devices, the insurgents won't retaliate against us for ever having been there in the first place? We must see this through to the end! I agree (as President Bush has admitted) that mistakes have been made in Iraq. But we simply cannot leave at this stage of the game. The consequences of that action will be far more dire than those that we have currently seen.

Oh, and as for impeaching

Oh, and as for impeaching both Bush & Cheney and letting Nancy Pelosi take over as acting president.... has anyone actually looked at that law? We can't impeach the VP for the actions of the President. So.... if Bush were to be impeached (which, let's face it, is NOT going to happen), then Dick Cheney would be sworn in as the President. Then, if we wanted him out we would have to go through the entire process again. The odds of that happening are even lower than the odds of Bush being impeached at this stage in the game.

Great letter Mr.Jarrett! It

Great letter Mr.Jarrett!
It is a shame the leadership we have in the office of the president.
Yes, we must stop this war. The insurgents are't coming to the USA. They want us out of their country.
I hate to see our troops killed daily because of our simple president. The man is pitiful and we let him have his way.

So Ms Opinionated, what you

So Ms Opinionated, what you are saying, in essence, is we can NEVER leave Iraq. You know, that's the problem most of us have with this war. Those of us with a brain in our head realize Iraq will never be a stable and free democracy. No matter what happens before we finally do leave it is going to be chaos. Why? Because of the very reasons BushCo decided to attack Iraq in the first place, they are weak. We can form all the Iraqi forces we want, but in the end they will surrender like they always have. Iran and Syria will fight for control over the country and it's oil, while the civil war rages on. That was this administrations biggest failure, they didn't plan for the future of Iraq before they decided to overthrow Saddam's government. Iraq has no air-force and their military is non-existent, as it was before we attacked them. But now they don't even have the fear of Saddam's Republican Guard to protect them. And progress? Ask Iraqis how much progress has been made. We have destroyed their infrastructure and have weakened their nation so much so that we will always have to be there to protect them. Personally, I can think of a lot better things to do with our tax dollars, can't you

you cannot maintain an empire

you cannot maintain an empire if you are going to cut and run over the loss of 3000 lives. we lost more than that in a few hours on D Day. how can we rule the world and achieve world gov't if you are going to question the elites power and how much money do you believe bankers can make off of peace?

Oh, and before you say it,

Oh, and before you say it, this war has killed far more Iraqi civilians than Saddam could have dreamed of killing in a much shorter amount of time. So they aren't any safer with him gone. As a matter of fact, he IS gone and the killing continues. Also, to those who say we are safer here at home because our troops are in Iraq, please. Iraq never attacked us, NEVER. We've only had two foreign attacks on this country's soil by Muslim terrorists in our history. Some of you make it sound like terrorist attacks were a daily thing before we went to war, and if we bring home our troops the attacks will start up again. Get real. Other countries face terrorist attacks regularly, we have only had two. And if you truly want to stop the people who attacked this country you need to start looking at Saudi Arabia, as that's where most of the terrorists come from. But we all know that won't happen don't we? And we all know why.

GaGirl40, where do you get

GaGirl40, where do you get the statistics as to how many Iraqis SH killed and those killed by accident during miliary opeations? Spoon fed by the DNC and MSM? Also, any attack on a US Embassy (there were two that killed hundereds) or naval vessel (USS Cole)is an attack on the US regardless of where it happens. Thank God we didn't have some wimp like Al Gone in the White House on 9/11! Clinton didn't know how to handle the first WTC bombing, either.

Can I just get more taxes

Can I just get more taxes taken out of my check please? I just don't think we American's have thrown enough money down the hole to even come close to winning this war. Terrorist running amock in the streets of America, brain-washing, folks slinking back to Crawford, navel's be attacked for their lint, people thanking their gods that we are war, the theory of relativity being evoked by a wanna-be political editor, Gore and Clinton being regurgitated, Jesus cringing because when he said to love your enemies he meant don't kill them...geeeez, where does it stop?

I still think it's a "you

I still think it's a "you break it, you buy it" type deal. How do we fix Iraq? Let's leave now without them being at all prepared to take control! That's a great idea :P

OK people...here's the deal.

OK people...here's the deal. Iraq was a menace and was supporting terrorist that murdered innocent civilians throughout the world on a daily basis. Also, Sadam said over and over he had WMDs. The Russians said he had them, the French said he had them, the British said he had them, etc. Sadam said he was going to destroy us with them. Kill, you, me and our children. Our president, right or wrong, decided to act with the information he had at the time. In case anyone failed to notice...we won the war. However, no one could have foreseen the chaos we had with the nation building. No one. But know this...I AM SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THE CRITISM! We can't leave and if anyone has any better ideas on how to fix things SPEAK UP or SHUT UP! Better yet, come over her and see things for yourself. We are doing the best we can. Mrs P....Thank you for your unwavering support. It has been a long, tough year here in Afghanistan especially for those of us in the fight. My group of IRR guys involuntarily activated were looking forward to coming home next month. Unfortunately, all roads home now go through Iraq. When I get there I'll give you an actual street report.

Jarret, your opinion stinks.

Jarret, your opinion stinks. But, I guess everyone is entitled to a stinky one. Our president has been the backbone we have needed for such a time as thisl The insurgents fighting in Iraq are no more from Iraq than we are. Yes if we leave the hate mongers to do their thing we will feel their wrath. Not because we have invaded Iraq but because the hate mongers want it that way. People need to wake up and realize that .

augustalawyer, your

augustalawyer, your commentary sounds like it has the wisdom of experience. Please don't be disheartened by the flatulence of the Bush haters. They are just repeating the foolishness of the left wing press that also hates Bush. Knowledge and reason have very little to do with their 'feelings'. This wonderful format provided by the A.C. allows everyone to express their opinion, pro and con. I enjoy reading the rantings of the left, because it shines the light on their sense of logic. At their most boring they list very silly statistics that have no meaning and at their 'best?' they come across as anti-American supporters of the enemy. Some even claim the 9-11 bombers aren't our enemy. I think even Americans that are undecided about what this war is about don't wish for us to surrender and run away, but that doesn't stop the 'couragous citizens' from recomending it. Let the haters rant, they make our point for us. We're all examples of what we can be. Let the readers decide who they wish to emulate.

God Bless President Bush for having the courage to remove the dictator, and liberate the people of Iraq. All of you uneducated, liberal idiots need to remeber that your gal Hillary voted to send the troops to Iraq too. Should she be removed form office as well? We could only hope... VOTE REPUBLICAN PEOPLE!!!!
