  • I really dont know who you think you are but this is probably one of the most bipartisan presentation regarding the Iraqi War. No wait I forgot its only the democrats spreading rumors that president bush announced the war declaration, and that all the statistics listed are completely. Grow up and create your own slideshow about the Iraqi War. You are just another example of a retarded republican who believes that its your way or the highway. You should just shut up before you embarass your party even more.

  • Another one sided myopic view of the war. Must have been prepared by Dan Rather, Rosie O'donald, Michael Moore,Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, and John Kerry. Their are some dumb bastards in this world but the above are grade A dumb bastards, along with the moron who produced this slide show. I bet it was approved by that Arab, Obama.
