Are we supposed to go in there and crush the entire country? There are problems and we are dealing with it. Nothing like armchair generals who think they have a clue what they are talking about. If wars were as simple as some of you people make them out to be they would be won within weeks or days.

Exactly my point! Even these "children" have already frustrated the "liberation" so much, just imagine what they can do when they grow up!
and comparatively speaking, the communist were frustrating us a lot more in Vietnam. The comparison pretty much stops at the style of combatants. And even that's not such a strong of link, won't see tanks, jets, and large numbers of infantry falling upon the democratic government should we leave.

Hehe, please allow me to digress. I'm curious as to the context in which Mr. Bush made that remark. What does it mean?

What made me curious is that Americans tend to use "tall" in place of "high". So I would have expected him to say: "We ought to make the pie taller."

IMO USA is in a quite stiky situation, and probably has to decide where this thing will end, and when they can pull thier troops out.

Economical disaster but my opinion is that if had to fight any wars, rather keep them in 3rd world than bring them home.

its true but think why Bush started this war. Oil, all because of oil. There was no proof that Saddam had chemical weapons, there was no proof that he was gonna use them, and certainly if he wanted to use them he could have already done so. Bush is just making up an excuse to get oil.

War In Iraq Not About Oil

NCPA: There is No Short-Term Answer for Energy Independence
September 8, 2004 – Speaking in Cincinnati today, Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry accused the Bush Administration for “spending $200 billion in Iraq instead of investing in making America energy independent.” According to experts with the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) this statement makes the false claim that the war in Iraq is a war for oil. The NCPA also noted that Senator Kerry’s energy plan would do nothing to increase America’s energy independence in the near-term.
“If oil was our top concern war in the Middle East would be the last thing we would want to do,” said NCPA Senior Fellow H. Sterling Burnett. “The reality is the best thing that we could do for our oil supply, would be to sell out Isreal and retreat from the region. It’s important to remember that terrorists aren’t after us because we import their oil. We are at war because the terrorists see us as infidels who need to die.” Kerry went further stating: “George W. Bush’s energy policy is to trust the big oil companies and the Saudis. I want an America that relies on its own ingenuity and innovation, not the Saudi Royal Family. We’re going to invest in technology and the vehicles of the future, so that no young American will ever be held hostage to our dependence on oil from the Middle East.” Yet NCPA experts point out that there is no short-term solution to importing oil. Our infrastructure and transportation industries depend on it and will for at least the next two decades.
“We would have been less dependent on foreign oil now if the Senate had approved opening up ANWR for domestic production under either President George H. W. Bush or President Clinton,” said Burnett. “The Clinton administration said drilling in ANWR could be done in an environmentally responsible manner.” Senator Kerry has been a leading figure in blocking attempts to increase domestic production.
“Merely investing in technology and the vehicles of the future is tantamount to a Star Trek energy plan,” said Burnett. “One day, in the distant future, these technologies may make a positive impact on our energy needs. But we need a plan for today and over the next 20 years.”
