Wow what a surprise.. dc10guy and Alpha1 working together again.
Please. I rarely agree with Dc10guy, if you had bothered to read any of my posts above. I think he's naive about what happens in war; I think he's naive about why the war was fought; I think he's envoirnmentally a but on the nutty side, so the "guilt by association" won't work, fella. Again, I've noticed that, when your arguments come up short, you turn to crap like this.
Get on board or leave the country.
Why? Because I DARE to disagree with the President? You'd depopulate the country by almost half if your naive wish came true!
And do you think I'm going to leave the country to a bunch of yes-men, who think this is frightfully good policy? Forget it. I'm as loyal an American as anyone, and, as a free man, I have the right to disagree with my government when I deem it necessary. Again, you have no ammunition, so you resort to petty stuff like this.
Even one of your beloved dumbacrats
You keep proving my point over and over and over. No substance. Nothing but bitter rhetoric.
Doesn't an Iraqi Kurd have a right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
Extending the American Bill of Rights, which your beloved Administration, by the way, is doing so much to shred these days, is an interesting, if naive, way of looking at things. This wasn't about a Kurd's right for happiness; it was about lashing out at an old nemesis after we got our nose bloodied on 9/11, and the neocons convinced Bush that Iraq was the perfect target. The WMD's were a convenient ploy, but that has backfired. We invaded a soverign nation, who was not at war with us, and had offered no threats to us. If you want to be proud of that, go ahead. I am not.
I knew you would ignore the murders of American citizens in CLE every day.....that cant be blamed on Bush I guess.
I ignored them because what you said was idiotic, that's why. It has no relavance to Iraq, it was just an attempt by you to deflect critcism from what was being discussed. Happy? Good!
You mean the Kennedy that took us to the brink of nuclear war in futzing around with Cuba?
Now there's as interesting rewrite of history as I've seen. Note to the author: we were taken to the brink of nuclear war because the Soviets introduced nuclear weapons there. Are you so blinded by conservatism that you need to rewrite history in this way? It looks that way. The only good liberal is a dead one, right?
Oswald should be sainted for saving us from that.
Now we can officially consign you to the Lunatic Fringe. Anyone who even thinks an assassin of an American president is somehow good doesn't deserve to be called an American. An you have the balls to tell me to leave the country?
You're a lunatic, my friend. You make B757300 look like a freakin' commie!
I actually considered the military as a career, the Air force said my eyes were not good enough to fly so I told them to shove it
Maybe the military acutally has some brains after all.
Or do you think you could actually muster some compassion for those people that put their lives on the line so you can sleep securely at night?
Compassion has nothing to do with who sent them over and why. I had a cousin over there-a doctor, and I was against the war. But if you'd bother to get your head out of the sand, you'd see that most people against the war aren't against the troops-they're against the mission they were sent there for.
And what they're doing in Iraq, honorably serving as they are, hasn't made me, you, or anyone in the U.S. any safer or more secure, got that? When there's a real threat, I know they'll do a great job, but Iraq doesn't fall in that category, friend.
Kennedy was working on getting us all killed.
Boy, but are you 'round the bend. Amazing statements from someone who wasn't even alive during that time frame. Wonder who is filling you with all this tobacco juice on rewriting history.
So I can officially post you as part of that lunatic fringe. How nice.
What? You really have no idea now do you? Or are you getting desperate? We are discussing a specific situation here. Stick to that.
Roy, maybe try answering the challenge, Tovarich. It wasn't a difficult question to answer, or does the truth hurt?
