  1. If I could wave a magic wand, I’d use it to pull all the troops out of Iraq immediately, just like Congressman Murtha has suggested. But since I nor anyone else has such gifted powers, I am reminded of those horrific scenes during the last days of the U.S. presence in Vietnam, when the last helicopters were struggling to get off the ground and some Vietnamese were trying desperately to leave with them. Those scenes were played out on television screens all across the world, and I suppose one can only guess what resulted from it. Maybe we’re still paying for it, I don’t know. But I’m also convinced that we are at the mercy of terrorists in Iraq and that the opinion of Iraqis has greatly turned against us, if in fact it was ever with us.

    Thing is, through its own gargantuan stupidity, which was complemented by the complacency of voters, the Bush administration has placed our country in such a dire predicament that we seem to be frozen solidly into place, unable to make a reasonable decision because of the consequences that may await us at every turn. Yet, common sense seems to dictate for us to get out of there as quickly as our legs can carry us. As in Vietnam, perhaps the time has come to shrug off the dangers to our reputation and bring the rest of our soldiers home safely. I’m glad I don’t have to make that decision.

    I agree with Associated Press journalist Helen Thomas, who, a year or two ago, called Bush the worst president in U.S. history. And to think they once impeached Clinton for having lied about having sex in the White House!
