It is time for the US to disavow any and all participation in foreign affairs. There should be no US soldiers overseas -- not in Iraq, not in Afghanistan, not in Germany or South Korea or Japan. The US should let Iran be what Iran will be and should let carnage descend on Jerusalem (and I suppose Mecca, too) if that is how the various armies cause things to be. As for Darfur??? Forget Darfur and any and all humanitarian blah-blah-blah.

Hague Conventions of 1907:

Art. 42:

Territory is considered occupied when it is actually placed under the authority of the hostile army. The occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised.

This thread was addressed to The Occupiers. The anonymous contributor took it to mean 'Americans'. If the shoe fits, wear it, I have to say.

Actually most occupiers among us are Republicans. Except for Ron Paul, they have bought into Iraq-a-pying, hook, line, and sinker. None of them wants to deal with the consequences.

Take Giuliani: he wants to surge in Afghanistan? Doubling U.S. combat troops there? But no mention of a d-r-a-f-t?

Take Romney: Republican Romney says Bush mismanaged Iraq war?

it wasn't bad to unilaterally invade and occupy a country that had not attacked the US. It was just bad to do it incompetently.

Most of the occupiers among us are Republicans. Most, not all.

Bush should have invaded Canada, not Iraq. Canada not only has oil; their oil can more securely be transported down to Texas as soon as Victory-over-Canada is declared. And just as important as oil, Canada has water!!!!
Then, we can "induce" the Canadian Inuits to build the SouthernFence to keep the brown-skinned immigrants out. Win-win-win!!!

If Bush and the GOP had not been caught flat-footed in Iraq, they had a list of six more countries they intended to conquer.

It's coming, just give it a few more years.

John McCain says to stay in Iraq "maybe a hundred years or a million years would be fine with me".

Re: "Most of the occupiers among us are Republicans." - The Vigil

I believe you. Chief Bush and vice chief, their warrant officers (Congress) including their mess officers (DoD, State, etc) were all Republicans, werent they?

That's why if I were a US voting man, I'd be or vote a Democrat to the White House.
