There is little to no documented evidence of ANYONE getting killed by an errant US bomb.

You MUST be trolling on that comment. Either that or you've convinced yourself that your living in some alternative reality.

Here ya go:

11 Afghans killed by errant bomb



Plenty of examples of errant bomb deaths, as well as "unexploded bomblet" casualties/injuries



American troops killed by errant bombs (look at Wed, Dec. 5th)



Special forces killed by errant US bomb


I can go on and on, but you can google it yourself.
Actually, you probably won't. Its never fun to realize your wrong...especially when it comes to saying something so insanely retarded as "There is little to no documented evidence of ANYONE getting killed by an errant US bomb". Whatever it is your smoking, I'd sure like some.

If anything it underscores the fact that we should vote for Bush.

the way we choose our presidents in the 21st century: whichever candidate will spite the most people.

I am a very open-minded person. Thank you for the links. Unfortunately, I have seen almost all of the information contained therein previously. You need to understand some of those reports aren't related to Iraq, some are fabrications, and some are exagerations. Some are correct, I am sure. Thank you for the links, though.

If a child molester tells you 2+2=4, do you say he is wrong?

Oh yeah, prove that he is. What? You can't.

Actually, he hasn't made a single claim recently. He has taken to spinning facts that cannot be googled, and spouting stupid assed attacks. Like you. Thanks for coming troll.

But, i dont get the "If anything it underscores the fact that we should vote for Bush" part, how does that work then? like a reactionary thing? if i started 'recommending' that people vote for bush would it have the opposite effect?

If you wanna clarify it, that's cool, if not, well, it won't really matter too much, its 5pm in Scotland and i'm about to finish work and go for some beer... ;)

Kill 'em all! For what they done to that man.

I can't imagine any TV or Movie person having anything to do with Billy Connelly, maybe in Scotland only. I am a horrible person and I even think that was tasteless.

On a side note, Hitler encouraged Japan to attack us, that was proven later on. The Nazi's wanted Japan to attack us, somewhere. Hitler thought that if we were busy with Japan we would stay away from Europe. We took care of them both.

Just like the Taliban, and Saddam and whoever the fark is farking next. Iran, Syria.

Iraq will be under control by February. Liberal wankers, get out of the way.

There are some sick farks in here. A man dies in the most horrible way imaginable, and they talk about how he "deserved it" and they have "no sympathy", or twist it to their own political ends.

The wrong people are being beheaded.
 
2004-10-08 12:10:59 PM
It's sad, but this is a by-product of what happens when you use the military alone to solve a political problem. Israel's machine-gun diplomacy hasn't worked for 40 years, why do we think it's going to work in Iraq now?

25 prisoners at Abu Ghraib died while in custody. Do you think they died peacefully in their sleep? Five U.S. soldiers are facing court martial for torturing them to death.

We've completely lost the moral high-ground.

Iraq will be in a state of civil war this time next year, You can quote me on that.

What's with this "errant"?

High-explosive bombs are not "errant". They are are "huge cock-ups".

Naughty schoolboys are "errant".

there is a lot of media bias in Europe, and people's opinions there differ from ours. Simply put, you are not concerned for the Us the way a Us citizen is. That is all. You guys are just as smart and your views as valid as ours, but this war is mostly about the US and unfortunately Israel, not Europe.

Darwin is not pleased.

The strong and daring are dying while weak big people pump out weak little people. Somethings screwed up in Darwin's equation.

Oh well, eventually it'll reach equalibrium. It'll reach equalibrium when the weak are now longer kept safe by the strong. Then the weak get wiped out and a new strength is born.

Complacency kills more people than resolute action ever did.

You are right Kooter. It will be. And it isn't exactly a bad thing. Canyoneer and I spoke about this at length in one thread:

The Kurds will declare independance, inciting the Turks and Iranians. We are already seeing the results of the Sunni'/Shi'ia conflict starting. There are a lot of other factors, but those are the main points of conflcit as it will stand when that war starts. Bush knows a civil war will start.

We don't drop bombs on civlians. I serious doubt more thna 20 people have been killed by our bombs in Iraq.

2004-10-08 11:08:48 AM Wizzywig

Actually, we have killed innocent civilians.


Wizzy's not contradicting himself? OK, fine: Assuming Wizzy meant to say, "We don't intentionally drop bombs on civlians," then I take it back. He's just very poorly expressing himself, is all.

I apologize, Wizzy. You're not a self-contradicting assclown.

Now, back to the topic at hand: My sincere condolences to Ken Bigley's loved ones.

I express myself quite effectively. You are blinded by partisan hatred. We dropped bombs on them. Accidently. On purpose, whatever. I said we did. That was a CONCESSION on my part.

No neocons and Bush will be to blame. They got us in Iraqnam and they have the blood of thousands on their hands.
 
2004-10-08 12:19:01 PM
that's very ayn rand-ian of you, colgate.

but actually, darwin doesn't talk about 'strong' and 'weak'. he talks about ability to survive, through any avenue.

if 'weak' means stays at home and has kids, then the 'weak' are the people that survive. and in that sense, they are stronger than the people who got themselves killed.

darwin doesn't give a damn about how you see the world and who you believe should be here.

start lining up the guys in Abu G...

for every one hostage killed or beheaded, mow down 10 of those fcuks with machine guns.

thye want to behead another ? make the next line up 15.

..yet another, you got it... the third line up will be 20.

They'll get the picture by then hopefully

If they want to play this type of game, we have to lower to their standards, play on the same field.


The Nazis did the same thing in my country back in WWII. So, no thanks.

2004-10-08 12:27:21 PM
Undoubtedly, this is very sad, if it is true. I feel especially bad for the families of all the people killed in the Iraq invasion/occupation.

However, my advice to every non-Iraqi is thus. If you don't HAVE to be in Iraq... don't go. It's dangerous. You might end up beheaded. Seriously, this should be obvious by now. I know there's a lot of money to be made there, but the pay is good for a reason.

Stay the hell out of warzones... it's a much healthier lifestyle.

He'd still be alive if Bush hadn't invaded Iraq.
How many more people have to die for Bush's lies?


For crap's sake, man...
It's sad, but people die. A lot more Iraqis would probably be dead under Saddam had we not taken action...


Ummm, the burden of proof ball is in your court. do you know how many iraqi civilians have dies since the war began? me neither...

He died not because we invaded Iraq, but because of a group of hateful zealots (that'd be the guys who killed him, not our administration)

scary that you have to point that out :/

No sorry Our invasion has killed at least 30,000 civilians. Saddam didn't kill that many in 10 years.

Notice how before the invasion, nobody even really gave a crap about the Iraqi people, not even neo-cons.

Cannibolic:

"Not "executed", you mean "murdered"."

There are many people who already thing that it means the same thing regardless of who did the killing. This event only reinforces that belief.
 
2004-10-08 12:34:08 PM
Mr. Clarence Butterworth:

I suspect that the Iraqi citizens noticed that no one gave a crap about them prior to the invasion. They're probably noticing now that still no one gives a crap about them.
 
2004-10-08 12:35:04 PM
Thank god all you liberal c*&! ups weren't around after the Invasion of Normandy where we lost multitudes of more troops in a single day than a full year in Iraq liberating another country from a Menace that never attacked us directly on our soil. After all was said and done, and millions of troops sacraficed thier lives for the cause of security for the western world, I would say we are a bit better off for it.

Nobody likes to see young men and women lose thier lives, but some things are worth fighting for. I would like to thank every last one of the soldiers and the families of the soldiers of those that have lost thier lives in the fight on the war on terrorism, for the peaceful last 3 years in our Homeland without an attack.

Stick it to em!
