There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of January.

In the city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January.
That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.
From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us.
From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,334 per year.

John F. Kennedy...
started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

went to war in Bosnia, without U.N. or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us.
He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us President Bush has
liberated two countries,
crushed the Taliban,
crippled al-Qaida,
put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot,
and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida.

Nothing wrong with the intent, or the seniment, in my book, bit, We went into Nam when the French went out. Saying that, i know thats wrong, at least as far as anybody knows, cause the french lost Den ben Phu in 54, and I think we started sending advisors there in 56, maybe 58, but I remember reading that by 61 or so, the number of advisors in Vietnam was in the mid hundreds, not a fighting force at all, just people trying to whump up support for a democratic Vietnam. Probably many of the advisors set up ambushes and set out the actual fighting. I know a very few got caught. Dont know what happened to them . I also have heard, and believe that JFK finally realized that the CIA had lied to him again about the probility of winning in Vietnam, and he was set to pull us out of ther in 64 making that a good piece of work to stand on during reelection

Mud, dont know where you got you information, but I know for a fact that the USA was in Viet Nam a long time before Kennedy was in office. If the rest of your post is as loose with the facts as that,????? Where are you getting your information?

If you scroll down to 1960 forward you will get the information.

Shortly after the United States declared war on Japan, Hitler and Mussolini declared war on the United States. December 11, 1941. Later that same day, the United States declares war on Germany and Italy. There was one dissenting vote on that declaration in the House, it was unanimous in the Senate.
