Battle phase deaths in Iraq were 200. Occupation phase deaths average 70 or more per month. We should invade Iran and leave Iraq. The lives saved in Iraq would pay for the Iran invasion. This way we get something for our deaths,denuking Iran.
We get our army in Iraq on the Pakistan border where we can surround Pakistan and make it give up its nukes and bin Laden.
We have to fight wars of strategy now while we lose 200 killed in battle phase.
The two drivers of occupation deaths in Iraq are foreign Sunni Arab fighters and Shiite Sunni historic rivarly in Iraq. Both are absent in Iran.
Saudi Arabia is funding the Taliban through Pakistan ISI against US troops in Afghanistan and al Qaeda in Iraq and Sunni resistance in Iraq. We must invade and occupy Saudi Arabia and rename it Multicultural Arabia. We should open it up to immigration for multicultural sources including illegals from the US.
America is going to discover in 25 years its an also ran from history. We have to act now while we still can to turn off what attacked us on 9-11 and has been attacking us. That comes from Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
FDR didn’t stop at Normandy and take casualties he marched into Germany and ended Fascism. We need to march into Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan.
== Comment 2
People will volunteer to invade and occupy Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan because they know that’s a plan and a strategy for total victory over what attacked us on 9-11 and is attacking us. Bush sits in the White House with Prince Bandar making a torture pact, and then no one volunteers to bleed and die in Iraq and Afghanistan while the Saudi royal family funds the Sunni resistance in Iraq and the Taliban in Iraq.
Bush airlifts out the bin Laden family after 9-11 instead of asking for a million volunteers. Bush airlifts out Pakistan generals in Nov 2001fromKunduz Afghanistan, see Seymour Hersh, instead of arresting them. This is why no one wants to volunteer.
Bush says we are going to bleed on the beaches at Normandy forever, not march into Germany and end fascism. Bush instead meets with Hitler (Prince Bandar) and does a torture deal. Now no one volunteers to be perpetually strafed on the beach at Normandy.
Wake up Bush and be loyal to America not Prince Bandar. Why should Americans die for Prince Bandar to go on torturing people with Bush? Why should Americans die in Iraq and Afghanistan so that the Saudis can keep on funding the killing of Americans?
Bush praises the religion of peace, Saudi Arabia’s ideology, and makes torture compacts with Prince Bandar. Bush has a call to prayers broadcast at Gitmo 5 times a day. No one in America wants to fight in his war in Iraq and Afghanistan that is guaranteed to fail to defeat Saudi Arabia and occupy it.

Yes, serious. We can use the army in Iraq to invade Iran and leave Iraq completely. That saves 70 lives a month in occupation deaths. Since battle phase deaths in Iraq were 200, we may end up saving lives over a 1 to 2 year period.
This also helps Iraq by taking out Iran as a source of support as well as dashing hopes of insurgents. We can swing back through Iraq later if we need to.
We should adopt a roving patrol model, not a static sentry model. We should not be a static sentry in Iran, but remove nukes, the regime, religious courts and law, and then move on to the Pakistan border.
We should also increase our military. By 1945 we had 10 million men under arms. We can restore our volunteer force to the 1991leve. If we have a real plan for people to believe in other than die in peripheral wars in Iraq and Afghanistan we can get volunteers.
Going to the sources, Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia will be something people will volunteer for. Dying in peripheral wars so Bush can make torture compacts with Prince Bandar, have calls to prayer at Gitmo, build a mosque at Quantico and call what attacked us the religion of peace will not get volunteers.
This 9-11, schools celebrated and praised what attacked us, not what we believe in. That is a country that is insane and going down to defeat. Dying in Iraq and Afghanistan shows defeat.
We rarely talk about Saudi Arabia funding the insurgencies against us in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though the UK press does. Bush, the MSM and Congress are focused on peripheral wars.
Its as if in WWII, we had stopped at Normandy and then become experts there and taken German shelling. The equivalent is Saudi money today killing our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Rumsfeld was right to want to leave Iraq. We should simply knock over what harms us and leave. We lost 200 battle deaths in Iraq. We lost 50,000 inViet Nam, over 300,000 in WWII.
Because we train Chinese students in physics grad schools and not Americans, our technology lead will be gone in a few years. China will sell the same or even better weapons to Iran, Pakistan, etc. This is thanks to George Allen’sSkil Bill, as well as Bush, Kennedy, McCain, Warner, etc. who have undermined our people’s education and given away our know-how and thus our jobs, security, and advantages.
We have to strike now while we lose 200 killer or even 2000 killed per war. This advantage will be gone in a few years, because George Allen andCornyn et al are giving it to China.
They don’t think, so we have to.
