The famous Saddam Hussein is no longer around, more US troops have been sent to reinforce the current number of soldiers battling the Iraqis and the allied nations have expressed dismay and pulled out their troops to spare lives from being taken. The call for peace has been expressed by the allied nations, but it seems that US President Bush is not biting on it, citing security reasons as his main forte for bolstering the current number of troops who are in Iraq.
The order has been criticized to being outrageous if not practical. Aside from claiming the innocent lives of the war plagued country, soldiersâ€™ casualties from the United States have also been escalating and putting lives in jeopardy for the sake of their homeland.
Regardless, the directives being issued by President Bush has been deemed personal and no longer for national concern. Security has become a lame excuse and from all indications, Bush will no longer be able to gain the full blessings of his countrymen. From all indications, Bush couldnâ€™t care less.

The nuclear issue seems to be hopping from one nation to another. After getting reports and fears that North Korea is gearing up for a nuclear armed military, attention has now shifted towards Iran as doing the same thing under wraps. While the claims are of course denied and are deemed as overreactions, Iran can possibly consider it by taking its cue from the North Korea talks.
No one knows for sure why and how all the gossip has been spreading. From all indications Iran has been out of the circle of controversies of nations today. Most of the surrounding issues have been focused on Iraq and North Korea. But now, similar to that of how North Korea gained media attention, Iran is in the doldrums of being put on the hot seat this time around. Nuclear preparations alarm the world at any instance, hence Iran may now find it useful to watch its movement since all eyes are now also on them as well.
With a lot of things to consider and things to ponder, the best way to garner votes for the coming 2008 US Presidential Elections is to let people hear what they want to happen. Some would say better energy sources issues, some want reforms, and some would want an end to the Iraqi War debacle. The list goes on and on and among them, it would be up to the presidential hopefuls to single out which among them would be the theme of their campaign bandwagon.
For Democratic Sen. Barrack Obama, emphasis would be on universal heath care, something that has become the important things for most people today. While such promises are appealing to the ears of the masses, it cannot be avoided on how thick this promise would stand. Would it be for simple attraction or would the person truly do something about it? Based on experience, seated presidentâ€™s have yet to fulfill all their promises and this 2008, hopefully the next one would be able to stand up and hold true his promise.

Politics has always been something that would spell conflict and disaster. Such can be attributed to the never-ending crisis that large countries including the United States have to manage daily. While it has never been experienced to have a government run as smooth that their countrymen would raise their glasses in approval, based on the series of events, this shall continue to be the case.
Continuous political bickering and backstabbing, everything is about the battle for power and supremacy. However, once seated into power, all that is left are empty promises and continuous debate over prevailing decisions for the supposed good of the nation.
It is quite evident that people will have their own way of running a country. Problem is they are too focused on getting into power that once they are seated, they forget everything that they had promised which create more turmoil than good. This is one reason why dark clouds still continue to ponder and unless the right person sits in power, there are no clear skies ahead for any nation surrounded by controversies and deceit.

President Bush must be sitting on pins and needles lately. Facing a lot of criticism for his various decisions with regards to the ongoing conflict with Iraq, it seems evident that Bush has forgotten all about addressing the actual issues that the country has been encountering since his first day in office. Making the 9/11 attacks as an excuse may be accepted by few, but overall, Bush is focusing more on the security of the country which seems to be making everyone uncomfortable rather than secure.
With the elections fast approaching, all seems not good for Bush. Everyone has been jabbing and questioning every decision and his priorities for the sake of the United States. The economical condition of the country seems to be losing the attention needed, and unless Bush makes a 360 degree look at his hops, he may end up advancing with no one to support him soon.

Senator and former first lady Hilary Clinton has made it official that she is running for president in the next US presidential elections. And to make the declaration no fluke, Hilary Clinton made it clear that she is in it to win and not to play around.
The United States has never had a woman to act as their president and this could be counted as among the motivating factors that has led to the former first lady to take on the challenge. Additionally, she would be the first spouse to win the presidency, being the wife of former President Bill Clinton who served his term some years back.
With this declaration, the race for the coveted presidency has become crowded since a lot of political figures have already made good their intention of running as well. Among the other hopefuls include, Sen. Barak Obama, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Sen. John Kerry and Sen. John Edwards to name a few. Nothing looks to be definite and anything can happen until the actual elections are held.

Anyone today can enter the world of politics if given the chance. However, entering politics is no laughing matter. Investments in the financial aspect to fund campaigns and pay off the necessary to be able to succeed in racking in votes of approval from his countrymen are among the risks involved.
However, the transition stage is another factor. Being accustomed to the probable office work and daily work routines may be in for a change as far as lifestyle is concerned. Politics is a meeting of the minds where people would use psychological factors and influences to win over the other.
Take the matter of the Presidency or any top position of any country. Before a person would be inducted to office to manage the pros and cons of surrounding people and countrymen, a test of patience and ability to handle peopleâ€™s attitudes is important. Getting the nod 100% is impossible as seen in today in various parts of the world. A person can only aim to go as far as convincing the majority but unlike in business or other fields of profession, entering politics is one crazy rollercoaster ride.

Amidst the never-ending bickering found in todayâ€™s political issues, one has to think how the late Martin Luther King Jr. would react towards the current situation of his country today. The continuous jawing and conflicts of interest, the upholding of the current crisis that the United States has in its hands and the obvious misunderstanding based on executive decisions, King would most probably have something to say to sum it all up.
A mess to sum it all up may not even be close. Presidential candidates planning to run in the 2008 elections have applied contrasting styles to address the current situation that the United States finds it in today. It is obvious that the current politicians have various views of improving the current state of the country.
But with regards to implementation, it remains to be seen on whether the next president can be able to turn things around for the sake of his countrymen.

The US offensive has been laid down and the democrats are still not for the sending of additional troops to Iraq for the continuing war on terror. While such a move has been condemned by the Allied Nations as well, President Bush has passed the ball to the other side, challenging them to provide their own alternative courses of action.
This having been said, a lot of suggestions and alternatives will surely be aired. For one, peace is still the main objective. However, this is something that is definitely not in Bushâ€™ vocabulary. But analyzed up close, peace is far from being accomplished if you talk about sending additional troops to replace the injured or killed men from the ongoing crisis.
As it stands now, if elections were held, Bush would definitely lose the presidency given his series of decision-making behaviors that seems to be drawing protests in his own country and nearby nations as well. It has become a personal vendetta and unless Bush shapes up, his seat at the presidency may be over sooner than he thinks.
Despite President Bushâ€™ continued efforts of pushing his power and going on the offensive on Iraq, it seems that it has all boiled down to the US and Iraq as far as the course of the war is concerned. Allied nations such as Great Britain, Italians and South Koreans have technically pulled out, seeing that there is no sense if spreading further bloodshed with the war-stricken country and seeing any signs of resolution to the peace efforts.
It is no secret that even casual Americans are not too keen on sending more troops to Iraq. But despite various clamors coming from different sectors of the United States, this is has not stopped Bush from going forth with his plans, supposedly for security reasons.
In fairness, Bush wants to focus on security above all. However, his approach may not be the best one as people will always want to settle the issues on a more competent and sane manner. As it seems, Bush is not looking back on the calls, and the crisis seems to be far from being resolved.
