This is the same government, you do realize, that didn't just do nothing -- they legislated racism and segregation. And it's the same government that now tries to legislate "tolerance". Why, oh, why do people ever look to politicized, sold out, immoral bureaucrats to fix social ills? It's up to you and me, folks. Little brother is watching you, government.

Cody, You said "The violence/terrorism is escalating out of control in Iraq."

Hmm. For every suicide bomber that kills 20 people, I can find you 10 stories on the web about how large numbers of Iraqi/Iraqi childrens lives have been drastically improved. How fast is the country supposed to be turned around?

We have a lot of senseless violence going on right here in the USA. Granted I haven't heard of a car bomb going off in Detroit, but there is plenty of bad stuff going on here. It can only get so good. And there's currently nothing to stop that from happening in Detroit other than a willing driver.

But, yes, ultimately, the Iraqi's must Fully unite and turn against those who plot and carry out such things. A great many of them are. There are some great units in Iraq Swat/special forces, and even regular army that have carried out very successful missions on their own, or with just supervisory help from the US counterparts.

Check out the milblogs such as Blackfive.net (that will point you to all the others) as well as some Iraqi sites. Or defendamerica.mil and see 'Iraqi Reconstruction'. You will be amazed at what can be accomplished month by month by 240,000 troops in an area the size of Texas while they are being shot at.

There's a lot of good information out there which is counter to the all evil all the time MSM diatribe.

I read a story the other day about an entire town that considers itself a terror free zone. Our troops even take off their body armour when they are there.
