"The War President"

Look closely at the picture and you will see the faces of US servicemen and women who have died needlessly in Iraq. The picture contains 648 faces and counting...

No, not needlessly at all. The Iraqi people were like the drunks in the alley being beaten needlessly by the Hussein gang. Those 648 servicemen did the honorable deed and stopped the senseless abuse. At the same time the antiwar whiners try to smear their honor by casting it in a negative light with every chance they can find. This picture is an example of the mindset that would have the Iraqi people endure their cruel existence to no end. They just can't seem to find anything positive about the liberation of the Iraqi people. What a disgrace that they go on and on and on and on ad infinitum!!!

What a disgrace that we feel that we have the right to destroy the Iraqis in order to liberate them. I guess if they are dead, they are free, is the mentality of many of the radical Conservatives. And after all the Iraqis are "liberated" and hundreds/thousands of our troops are killed or maimed, at least we will have the trophy of Iraqi oil after all are dead and gone...

In reply to: The Trophy...

are you recieving inside information? possibly given by friends in high places you made during your long and productive career in the oil/gas/energy fields?

so as to enable us (or at least me) all to grasp the theory behind your statements, maybe you could answer 2 questions:

how much oil from Iraq entered the US prior to January 2003
how much oil from Iraq has entered the US since january 2004

I think the world would be better off if he was sent down to his Ranch in TX (not that I wish the people from TX to have to deal with him, but his Ranch is there..) and make him just go to one tomb/day for each one he sent to die...

Another solution is to hand him over to the Iraqi people together with Saddam and let them take care of business...

GW is already at his ranch in Texas just like he was during the month BEFORE 911. GW and his administration claim that they were on top of the terrorist threat before 911, but actions speak louder than words. GW was so worried about the terrorists before 911, that he had time to take a long, unprecedented vacation. Now that things are heating up in Iraq, GW is once again on a little "vacation" at his ranch in Texas...

If GW would take his vacation in Iraq, he may not be such a cowboy. If GW and his staff had ever fought in a war, maybe they wouldn't be so ready to send others to their deaths so easily. It's sad that people like GW who worked so hard to avoid Vietnam are the ones who are the most aggressive at sending others to their doom for no good reason...

Lets see the Sunni and the Shia dont want us there
by gearup / April 8, 2004 10:27 PM PDT

and are willing to kill to show it. Just what portion of the Iraqi people does that leave who welcome being freed?

What I find to be unbelievable is how many of us are driven by the same NONSENSE which drives the Sunni and Shia...only of course we put a different name on it.

We will end up no more sucessfull in the Middle east than Coeur De Leon was a thousand years ago. Their modern Salidins wont even think of making peace! Get out of there or kill them all. Those are our choices and no matter how many times the "Right" wing rolls their eyes skyward heqaven isnt going to help!

Does the gloating make you happy? - Evie

I suppose if you consider outrage and horror to be gloating, then your misguided interpretation would be correct. You felt like you were supporting our troops by supporting GW's misguided and bloody agenda that has led to the deaths of over 640 of our troops and countless Iraqis. You felt like you were supporting our troops by supporting GW's misguided and bloody agenda that has left thousands others permanently maimed both physically and mentally. Sadly you were never supporting our troops as they were led to their slaughter. You were only supporting GW's misguided agenda. Their blood is on your hands now too...

I suppose you would prefer that the faces and the names of those who have given their lives for GW's misguided agenda should be ignored and forgotten. As the body bags continue to be flown into the US in the dead of the night to avoid public view, many will quickly forget the names and faces of those who have served and died so valiantly for nothing. But for those who truly support our troops, we will never forget nor will we ever cease our efforts to try and bring our troops home before many others have to die in vain...

Not for nothing
by Dan McC / April 9, 2004 2:38 AM PDT

They didn't die for nothing. They died in service to the country we love. They did not get to decide where and how they were to serve. They died for their country and their comrades and for us all. They died in the hope that their lives would be sacrificed wisely, justly, and prudently. The fact that their hope is not realized is a shame on their leaders, not on their valor.

There are nearly 60,000 names on the Vietnam war. These soldiers were sent to their graves with the same hopes and dreams. But we still lost the war in Vietnam and nothing was gained as a result of the sacrifices by so many good people who had dreams of their own. There's no way to know what the US would have been like if those 60,000 people hadn't been sent to their premature slaughter. Some may have become the next Einstein, Shakespeare, Mozart, or Lincoln to name a few. But since these people all died for another misguided political adventure by our leaders, they all died in vain and we never had the opportunity to appreciate their true potential...

We are making the same mistakes in Iraq and sacrificing our people for nothing. As a result, we are forever losing any potential accomplishments these people could have contributed to our society. We may be losing the cure to Cancer, Aids, World Hunger, or any discoveries like Cold Fusion, etc as a result of this unnecessary sacrifice in an unnecessary and misguided war...
