I'd say no. People come to the pub to discuss what's on their mind, and in this day and age Iraq and Bush are a big part of that. Basically, a lot of threads work around to Bush or Iraq because they impact a lot of what we do, and so what we say. Especially in a US election summer, I think opening a separate forum for Bush-related threads will just about empty the pub ;). If you make a new sub-forum, I can see almost every topic being moved there after about the third page because someone, sooner or later, is going to mention him. Bush and Iraq just reflect what people want to talk about, which is, I'd have thought, the whole idea of the pub.

We might as well talk about everything while we're here, or it'll degenerate into one of those forums where all people do is post pictures of their cats and ramble about whether they can really tell its not butter. Keep it all together, you'll get better discussions and, sooner or later, the Bush/Iraq threads may start to die down. But splitting up a forum that, it seems to me, already only has a few dozen regulars, isn't a good idea.

Yes you can have it but it will be dead in a year. Other topics will come up that over shadow Iraq:D.I could see a poltics thread. But %75 of the treads in here are about politcs. Thats my 2 cents on it(:

i like the idea, that way the pub isn't just solid iraq threads, which can be annoying.

I like the politics forum idea. It should be both intelligent, and flaming.
