    Absolutely shocked. :eek: ;)

    I think everyone can agree that it was only a matter of time that this was brought up by the administration.

    If only he'd close all of the borders on the countries he's in control of, then he'd have a much harder time making more mistakes. Or, so says theory. ;)

    Syria's gonna wish they'd kept those insurgents for when they get invaded.

    I thought it was Iraq's/US's responsibility to control the borders, not Syria's. If Bush doesn't want people walking in from other countries, it's not those other countries that need to make the effort. Of course, completely destroying the Iraq government and not replacing it allowed chaos to fester and the borders to become porous, but hey, why would some bring *that* up in a conversation with the president?

    Bombing other people because W can't meet his obligations is both pathetic and scary. Iraq knows all about it, I suppose...

    Let's start the Yale grad off with something a little less challenging than managing the flow of individuals and weapons across international borders. Ten bucks says he could not tell you what is sold in Borders stores.

    I am sure that the president and his fellow bright lights will be inspired by ABC's new show this season aptly called ... "Invasion."

    On Meet the Press on sunday, they said that only a very small percentage of the insurgents are foreign born - most are Iraqis. I forget the exact percentage, but think it was 4-6%.

    something which the adminstration can never acknowledge, because it would mean they'd admit:
    1. the administration's actions are creating terrorism, and
    2. wolfowitz's "draining the cesspool" theory was crap
