Rice will say the same old stuff.I just hope she does not say we are winning.Its the troops not anyone in the White House

1 thing and 1 thing only. Iraq has never, I mean never done anything directly to the U.S. What? Kuwait. Who the hell are they? Israel? Ok. But that is like me running to intervene between my cousin and his neighbor. WMD, yeah right? The war was not just pre-emption, it was instigation.
