president bush and his cronies are wrong about the "torture" issue. the terrorists are horrible people but the laws and regulations concerning torture and the handling of information is really meant to protect our troops, not the enemy terrorists. the republicans have turned this issue around and now claim that people who are opposed to their torture policy are supporting the terrorists. they are wrong. marines and soldiers should now be concerned because it is obvious republicans care nothing about our well-being in war or combat. again, the geneva convention and other types of international law protect us from all sorts of situations during war time. its a fact. its documented. there is a reason great people went to such effort to secure such rules. republicans like sen. mcCain know this. chicken hawks like rumsfeld and rove do not. they dont fight in the wars they start. their children dont fight in the wars they start. they want more power now, to do as they please as far as the enemy is concerned but they do it at the cost of all of us who serve in combat against real enemies. gen. powell knows this, he said as much. but the right-wing republicans continue to act like nazis and communists, the same names they call the democrats. the idea that mcCain supports terrorism is laughable, at best. but the republicans persist at the name calling. George Soros is right on the money when he talks about this administration. just like the nazis, they use fear to get their way. bush tells us that if we dont aprove of their torture policy the terrorists will get our children. thats fear-mongering and i really dont think the terrorists will get my children if i dont approve of torture. the terrorists might get our children if we continue to elect republicans to office because republicans are turning the whole world against us (thats my own brand of fear-mongeringLOL!). keep voting republican and we wont have a nation left to defend. chew on that awhile. i beg all fellow soldiers and marines to vote republicans out of office. its important to america, iraq and the whole world. remember, bush let 9/11 happen. do we elect failed policy? if we continue to support bush we may dig ourselves into a deeper hole, something we cant bomb our way out of,...god help us defeat republicans,..

maybe i shouldnt rant and rave about evil republicans on my blog so much. looks like they are going to be in power in america for some time to come. as long as the republicans beat the drums of war loud enough everything else is drowned out, it seems. i feel the american people are not being very smart because it is obvious that the republicans are doing nothing for america. the republicans claim if we leave iraq the terrorists will come to america and get us. but they say that about everything! if you vote democrat, the terrorists will get you. if you require a warrant for a search or wire-tapping, the terrorists will get you. the republicans are telling america that there is no civil war in iraq. its a lie! (republicans, always with the lies) this all makes me very sad because i had high hopes for iraq when i served there in 2003. nice people everywhere. now i blame the republicans for all the horrible things happening in iraq today. rumsfeld should be fired. hells-bells, bush should have been fired as soon as the world trade towers came down. 9/11 happened on his watch, did it not? america needs to wake up and understand that people with oil and money should not be running our great nation. we, the "people" should be in charge. same with religion. our founding fathers made it clear in the u.s. constitution that religion should be seperate from government yet the republicans make it clear they want a christian nation. the push for ten commandment monuments and public prayer proves there is no mistake that they seek to overturn our very own constitution. the republicans are no friend of the armed forces veteran, as well. they cut benefits to veterans and give tax breaks to the rich at a time when we are at war. does this sound right? the republicans now control two of the largest and best known veterans organisations in america. it seems the VFW and american legion are more concerned about making flag burning illegal than helping veterans. they do nothing for the veteran yet they contact us when we return from war asking for money. they may claim to help veterans but i have yet to learn what that means. anyway, we will always be in iraq no matter democrat or republican so voters would be wise to focus on other issues and not be distracted by the republicans war drums,...
