    What are your thoughts on the situation in Iraq? Depressing. One of my best friend's brothers is in Kuwait. He has to stay there for three extra months because nothing is being settled.

    What do you think about the president's recent statements that everything is going well? I think he is an idiot. Just look at it -- every day there are bombings in Iraq or Afghanistan. Everything is not OK -- people are getting slaughtered and murdered.

    What could we do to counter negative feelings toward the United States? Get a new president. Just try to help these people instead of straining their lives.

    What do you think about the fact that more soldiers died since the war than during the war? That just proves how things aren't OK over there.

    What's the solution for Iraq? I don't think there's a solution at this point. I wish I had an idea for the solution.

I don't think there will be progress anytime soon. While we have best interests at heart, we are openly interfering. However, in accordance to a peacekeeping tradition, we should try to repair what we have destroyed. -  - What do you think about the president's recent statements that everything is going well? That's inaccurate. The death of soldiers is representative of the presidents' inaccuracy. -  - What could we do to counter negative feelings toward the United States? We could be more diplomatic with our friends and enemies. Try to show a sense of good will. -  - What do you think about more soldiers having died since the war than during the war? That's once again an indicator that President Bush's plan is not entirely well thought out, and that we should be trying a different approach to the situation. -  - What's the solution for Iraq? I think they need time -- to see what they can do with their resources. Given a chance, the people will then try to form a government. Maybe they won't choose our style, but that's fine. They can choose whatever works for them. -

The more fighting there is, the more deaths are going to occur. -  - What do you think about the president's recent statements that everything is going well? When everything is going well, why [do] we constantly have casualties? I don't feel that everything is going well. He has been lying to the nation from the very beginning. -  - What could we do to counter negative feelings toward the United States? Get Bush out of office. -  - What's the solution for Iraq? Let them deal with their country and we deal with ours. There was no reason to be there at the beginning; it was just for money and control. We don't need their money; we definitely don't need their country and really don't even need their oil. -
