Well, people from all walks of life and all political backgrounds are coming together in the common belief that the Commander-in-Chief is an utter moron who acts in politics at a level better suited to first-grade recess

So he's got that going for him

Come on, folks--311 is down for the unity. All my bros are down for the unity; unanimity for the unity.

Heard a great quote on Sirius Left yesterday:

"Bush is a uniter, not a divider."

As long as you're all uniting under Christ that is. Otherwise you're a trrst.

Bush

Bush is a uniter, not a divider.

Sure, and the Constitution of the United States doesn't have shiat-stains on it.

I know some war widows that would beg to differ on that 'zero deaths in Nam' statistic.

Why does xen0blue hate America?
 
2006-01-10 03:13:22 PM
xen0blue, so it's cool to let only a couple of thousand troops get killed in a war based on fabricated and/or misleading and/or cherrypicked intel?
 
2006-01-10 03:13:51 PM
What is wrong with what he said?

Does irrational Bush hating come automatically with a totalfark account? Or does it just fester slowly over time?

xen0blue: Oh lord, time to post this again:

Thank you.
As we all know, all of those wars are exactly the same and their death tolls can be compared legitimately with no other factors to consider.

xen0blue,

Hey, it's almost like you're pushing an agenda preemptively, as though you expected this thread to go a certain direction...

/who cares that your post is, at best, misleading
//and irrelevant
 
2006-01-10 03:14:31 PM
xen0blue: Thanks for the graph! Now I know that any number of deaths below 20,000,000 is okay. If only 19,999,999 people die in Iraq, we're still good!
 
2006-01-10 03:14:52 PM
I love it when people start to compare the deaths from a war of necessity (WW2) to a war of choice (current Gulf). It makes me wonder how some people ever graduated from high school...

We interrupt this thread on the unjust Iraq war, based on finding WMD that were never there, to report that Iran has just unsealed their nuclear equipment, despite the presence of nuclear inspectors. We now return you to your regularly scheduled flamewar.
 
2006-01-10 03:15:38 PM
What's ironic is that the left likes to accuse the right of trying to divide the American people, when they in fact are the ones dividing our country the most. Most notably seen in affirmative action and racial quotas. What better way to show that we, as a society, are "color-blind" than to REQUIRE businesses and schools to have a certain percentage of each race hired/enrolled?

In other words, why do we have to segregate in order to integrate?
 
2006-01-10 03:16:21 PM
xen0blue, I've seen that graph several times now, but the numbers don't make sense. We lost 20 million people in WW2? WTF? We lost over 9 million in WW1? Double WTF ...

Or ... perhaps the graph is faulty since it uses two measurements - total losses in world wars 1 and 2 and only allied losses in nam, the gulf war, and operation iraqi freedom.

Why would anyone use an obviously faulty graph? How does that make you look smarter than whomever you're arguing against?
 
2006-01-10 03:16:33 PM

Now label the wars in your graph that involved people trying to take over the world. Huh.

Nice tribute to the troops, btw.

Oh lord, time to post this again:


you've posted this BEFORE!?!?

Did anyone tell you what utter bullshiat it is? Millions of people died in the Vietnam war. 50 thousand US troops alone. Why isn't that bar at LEAST 1/4 of the way up to 2 million?

Look close or you'll miss the current war's tally? Look closer, because that entirely misrepresents the true figure. It seems that your chart includes ALL deaths in WWI and WWII and includes only US troop deaths for the following conflicts.

So? You get the same question tossed at you as has been tossed at all the other war apologists -- Deliberate deception or ignorance?

Everyone should go to their local bittorrent site and download "The Money Masters" (or, failing that, buy it @ http://www.themoneymasters.com/)

The Wars in Iraq and in the past are put into a dark context. It has some very choice quotes from the Founding Fathers as well.

Nothing. What's wrong is that by his actions he has shown to believe in exactly the opposite.

Saw a great bumper sticker 2 days ago: "GEORGE BUSH IS A LYING SACK OF shiat."

Can't beat that for honesty.
 
2006-01-10 03:18:23 PM
xen0blue

Why did you include the deaths suffered on both sides in the first two bars but not the last three? Also, why not include 9/11 casualties in there to give proper perspective on how minor a loss 9/11 was. After all we have committed between 10 and 30 9/11's on the Iraqi people already, so our shredding the constitution and flipping out in response to our 1 meager 9/11 seem pretty silly.

I don't get it. What exactly did Bush lie about?
 
2006-01-10 03:19:19 PM
Can we all at least agree that if the Iraqis WERE to create such a government, it would be a good thing? Seriously, just because we here in the US seem incapable of it at the moment doesn't mean we cannot hope that others can achieve where we are lacking.

Even Pope Benny thinks the Bush administration is living in a dream world:

Now Pope Benedict XVI has let it be known that he does not believe Islam can reform. This we learn from the transcript of a January 5 US radio interview with one of Benedict's students and friends, Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, the provost of Ave Maria University in Naples, Florida, posted on the Asia Times Online forum by a sharp-eyed reader. For the pope to refute the fundamental premise of US policy is news of inestimable strategic importance, yet a Google News scan reveals that not a single media outlet has taken notice of what Fessio told interviewer Hugh Hewitt last week.

When even the Pope has to whisper
