What song best sums up the previous year?

Is there a song that stands out to you that for any reason sums up the year 2005?
"Oh by the way Congress, both Clinton's, most of America, and other countries also felt we needed to go into Iraq."

"If Iraq isn't important than why does Bin Laden want us out so bad? "

The information was based on this administration's analysis of their intelligence community findings. That analysis was presented to Congress and the UN. The UN and most of the world wanted the sanctions and inspections to continue. The UN weapons inspectors did not concur with the Bush administration's analysis. AND let us not forget the Downing Street memo, and Bush’s former treasury secretary Paul O’Neill who revealed that the President took office in January 2001 fully intending to invade Iraq and desperate to find an excuse for pre-emptive war against Saddam Hussein.

As far as Bin Laden, he should be found and be tried as the murderer he is, but not at the expense of US casualties and the Iraqi people who had nothing to do with Bin Laden or 9/11.
"And Rosstaman? Jessica Lynch was raped & assulted and on crutches 2 months after resuce. There, that make ya feel better?"

Cheap shot, tomryan.
I'm not attacking anyone for their viewpoint. I'm simply expressing my opinion on the Iraq War. It's still the American way to be able to have a political debate without name calling or cheap innuendos.

For what it's worth, I was 100% in support of the US and coalition forces going into Iraq to liberate Kuwait from Saddam and his army. I was 100% in support of going into Afganistan to capture or kill Bin Laden and end the Al-Qaeda training camps and the Taliban who allowed and supported them to exist.

I don't look at politics like a super bowl game, where one supports their team no matter what.
How about a variation of the Elton John song "Someone save my life tonight." Please save my life.

Well here we are 40 years to the day since John F Kennedy spoke the famous words "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

The question has long since been turned around to ask what Uncle Sam can do for me.

All the families of this country have suffered at the hand of the welfare mentality. The black family which was very strong and stable at the time is now in shambles with 70% of their children born out of wedlock. This is the result of the welfare state the democratic party has instituted. This is not at all to point a finger at black America. They are victims of horrible policy made by 'rich white folks!'

If the Democratic party would come back to where it was in 1964 then moderates would be able to support it, but the right has moved to the left and the left has fallen to the radicals. If you don't believe me, read the writings of JFK and listen to the speeches. He was more conservative than modern republicans.

Weapons of mass distruction have been found many times in Iraq, but even if the enriched uranium and 20,000 lbs of serin gas had not been found, Iraq broke the terms of the peace treaty they signed with Sr.
Colitas writes: It is quite clear that the facts of history are missed on some of us more than others. How many Nations have adopted democratic systems because of our intervention? Does anybody know?

Well, I might know a few......France. Germany. Spain. Italy. Japan.

That's all I can think of in 10 seconds.

Thanks for the posts! I could not have written my feeling any better.

I heard it when I was a teenager and it helped define my political views and still does.
