On "The Situation Room" today, we asked viewers the following questions, and here are some of our favorite responses that we didn't get to read on air:Do you agree with President Bush that the war in Iraq will be recorded as nothing more than a "comma" in the history books?
Bush can only wish that history will forget the Iraq war. The first time the American public was lied into a pre-emptive, illegal, ill-advised war and occupation? I don't think so. This tragic quagmire has destroyed careers and lives and has left the United States in a weakened position globally.Linda, San Diego, California
The war in Iraq will be remembered as one of the main decisions that brought down the most powerful country the world has ever known.Barry
This should be posed to the thousands of families who have lost a loved one.Ron, Tampa, FloridaShould the United States commit additional National Guard troops to the war in Iraq?
No more National Guard troops to Iraq! National Guard troops are just that. NATIONAL Guard. If we need more troops in Iraq, restart the Draft. It would be interesting to see how long the war continues if those in Congress had their sons drafted to fight the "war on terror".Pam, California
This war in Iraq was a mistake. Sending more troops is no answer. When in a hole the first thing to do is quit digging. We should leave Iraq to the Iraqis and start taking care of the major problems these elected fools have created in Washington.Minda
No, keep the National Guard at home to guard the nation. If we need more troops and they can't be recruited then bring back the draft. I believe in mandatory national service and I can't think of a better time.Bob, Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania
The National Guard should be deployed to protect the nation's borders. They should never be sent overseas to fight a war; that is why we have 4 branches of military plus the Coast Guard.Jason, Scottsdale, ArizonaIs the war in Iraq increasing the terrorist threat to the U.S.?
Al Qaeda coalesced in the wreckage of Afghanistan during and after its Civil War. Iraq is, thanks to us, similarly wrecked. These violent, unstable environments are where extremism is born.Alex, San Diego, California
Yes. This is part of Jihadists plan to bog us down in wars and then they come in and chaos begins. The Bush administration has bought into it. Next is Iran. The question is: Are Americans going to allow themselves to be fooled again?Sarah, Kansas City, Missouri
There is no doubt about that, Jack. The number of Iraqi children who have lost a parent due to the civil war going on there will surely breed new extremist adults who will seek revenge against the American and British.Bob, Cairo, New York
Is the war in Iraq increasing the terrorist threat to the United States? Of course it is. The fact that it took 16 intelligence agencies to bring that to light for the majority of the public is the only thing astonishing about this recent news.Matt, Irving, Texas
