    MoveON.org

    Even though I am a critic of the Iraq War, I am ashamed of the attacks that MoveOn.org has leveled at General Petraeus. This is insane. The man is trying to save lives and he is the bad guy? Yes, he reports to the President. Yes, a positive report would benefit the President. However, is there any proof that this man has a history of lying, or even sugarcoating the truth? His career has been sterling and spotless. Therefore, he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

    Agreed. It's ridiculous and bothersome.

    Re: MoveON.org

    I pretty much expect that kind of behaviour out of those kinds of groups. They attack anyone who represents a view contrary to their own. Some of them are highly anti-military.

    How poignant, alasakguy, your shame. And so predictable, so hollow, so right wing of you.

    Tell me, does your shame ever extend to the excess of the right. If so, give me an instance.

    Moveon.org is still around? I thought they closed up shop after Bush won last time and people realized their poster boy Michael Moore is full of crap.

    This is not a right or left issue. I am niether right or left but I agree Moveon.org should be embarrassed. No reason to attack General Petraus...he is just trying to get a job done with the "deck stacked" agianst him. Moveon.org is no better than PETA or the Earth Liberation front, and I am ot a Republican, so do not come fireing away with that weak "Rupert Murdoch" coined you are either part of the right or the left...

    Re: MoveON.org

    I happen to know GEN Petraeus; in fact, I wrote a chapter in one of his books. Frankly, he has nothing to gain by kissing butt. He got to where he is while being very outspoken, so he is apt to "tell it like it is." He is one of the most courageous people I've ever met. (He also helped me get my current job.)

    On the other hand, he really wants to win the war in Iraq while minimizing the pain to Iraqis. He truly loves the Iraqi people. I trust him to do the right thing, and agree with his assessment of the current situation in Iraq.

    I am not liberal or republican. I hate the far left a lot more than the far right. I think the far right are some crazy dudes but the far left is dangerous to the American way and life in America. The far right are pretty much sit back, relax and enjoy there unintentional comedy.

    That's impressive. What's the name of the book? I may have to pick it up.

    The extreme groups of both sides are bad. MoveOn has gotten progressively more extreme since it came into existence.

    The far right just sits back and relaxes, eh? Maybe when their not bombing abortion clinics or hunting down doctors who perform abortions at their homes so they can murder them, or blowing up federal buildings, or trying to obliterate our constitutional rights in the name of "battling terrorism." I won't even mention lying to engage in a disastrous war which has seen thousands die. Other than that, I guess they might just sit around.

    The far right is at least as equally dangerous as the far left, and I would say right now more so since we currently have Bush as president.
