Democrats as guilty as Repubs when it comes to unjust war

SEA ISLAND, Ga (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin stepped into the U.S. political campaign on Thursday, saying the Democrats had "no moral right" to criticize President Bush over Iraq

The Kremlin leader, answering a reporter's question in Sea Island, Georgia, suggested that the Democrats were two-faced in criticizing Bush on Iraq since it had been the Clinton administration that authorized the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia by U.S. and NATO forces.
The reporter had asked Putin to respond to U.S. press articles questioning Russia's place at the G8 feast of leading industrial countries.
Putin brushed these off, saying such articles were part of an internal U.S. political debate.
He went on: "I am deeply convinced that President Bush's political adversaries have no moral right to attack him over Iraq because they did exactly the same.
"It suffices to recall Yugoslavia. Now look at them. They don't like what President Bush is doing in Iraq."
Russia was as adamantly opposed to the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia as they were to the current Iraq war.

GUILTY AS CHARGED!

I agree. The Republicrats are blinded by corporations money. They don't give a damn about human life. Or telling the truth! (Wouldn't it be nice to see all of them lose their seats? Just dreaming...)
Since we pay these leeches good money to do their jobs. The least they can do is read the facts, and decide the outcome with their minds and instinct.
Instead, they're mesmerized by liars. And don't deserve to hold their positions of power.
(Note: Kennedy didn't vote for war.)
There should be anti war protests for years to come.
The idiots in Congress really believe that keeping troops in Iraq will force feed democracy to the Iraqi's.
What will happen when U.S. troops pull out?
Civil War in Iraq.
I don't care if U.S. troops are there for 15 years!
Kurds summed the whole problem about Iraq, after Dubya declared victory. They told CNN that there would probably be a civil war after the U.S. leaves.
The only reason we're there is for Shell, Exxon, Mobil, BP and other oil companies.
This isn't about democracy.
Anyone who believes this administration? Needs to enlist their sons and daughters immediately. Maybe that would stall the draft!

Nothing personal readers, Bush is complete garbage, Clinton was complete garbage, so on and so on.

Do you think that any one person who can ever make it to the national level in politics has an honest bone in their body or isnt owned entirely by a puppet master? A few slip through Kucinich, Nader(not elected), and are quickly neutralized.

I find it so fucking amusing that people who consider themselves outsiders and true progressives sit back rooting on their corporado hero. It is like saying you hate pro sports except you never miss a Patriots game because they are somehow different.

Its all the same crap! the DNC is the RNC with different colored suits and catch phrases and so on.
