The Iraq war and other subjects

Let me start by saying that I have always respected Christian's opinions on almost all subjects. (Although, some his movie choices are not my own). With that said, I have to disagree with my friend on this point. I am not sure if I agree with Christian on being in Iraq now if we had another President. I think given the status of the World in the months leading to the Iraq invasion, it may have been just as likely, if not more so, that US forces may have been in North Korea or Syria or both. Iraq may have continued to be a pressing problem for U.S. interests but I am not convinced that an Iraq invasion was unavoidable.

I would also like to hear more about Education, Health Care, Crime control, states rights, and immigration in this election. It is telling that no candidate is talking at all about immigration. With the exception that both candidates think that terrorists should not be allowed to immigrate. We have a 600 pound gorilla in the millions of illegals in the nation and no one has a stance. How is that possible? I just want to hear it "Amnesty" or "Border Patrol" --- just pick one and let us choose.
