It makes me weep to say this, but over in two.

Meh.  Liberal plant.  Not a real American.

If you think the people responsible for war care about the people fighting war, you don't yet understand the true nature of war.
 
2013-03-20 12:30:09 AM  
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good?
Will it buy you salvation?
Do you think that it could?
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you've made
Will never buy back your soul.
 
2013-03-20 12:30:33 AM  
Well done, my man. I will never forget you.

I'm sure someone from the Freeper brigade will also dismiss the guy because he's not a Christian.

Wow.  Well said, soldier.

Does the president or congress declare war?
 
2013-03-20 12:31:27 AM  
Well it's a good thing Obama decided not to investigate their roles in possible war crimes, or else the Republicans would've blocked all of his legislative agendas for the last five years.
 
2013-03-20 12:32:19 AM  
Like ANYONE cares.

This is the world in which we live:  Billionaire psychopaths send everyone but their kids into slavery or war - solely to increase their own wealth - and no one cares.

Yay!  {8/

As a vet who served before this debacle, and was against this war based on lies, I salute you soldier.

Pffft, nobody declares war anymore.  It's so 1941.

I feel sorry for all that joined the armed forces because of the 11 Sept 01 attacks; they truly got the short end of the stick.

/so glad DADT kept the notion from ever crossing my mind.

2013-03-20 12:34:39 AM  
Well, sir, I can honestly say I am sorry, to you, for ever having defended the war.
 
2013-03-20 12:34:44 AM  
I think George Bush is already pretty much broken.  They say he stays inside all day and paints pictures of himself.

Those two got a complete pass. Criticism is not prosecution. Obama is going to get a pass too. There is something about the collective American psyche that would rather see our homegrown war criminals go free than admit to ourselves that Americans are capable of committing war crimes.

Bamboozler: Does the president or congress declare war?


You mean in the case of the Iraq "war"?

No one. It's "kinetic action".

lolpix: "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross."


And yet as a Christian and a Democrat, I never supported Dubya, Dick or the GOP to the point I've lost family and friends over this issue. Bush 2 Administration bore false witness to wage war.
That is not a Christian value. Oh well, I'm sure someone will knee jerk post this Sinclair Lewis quote inaccurately once again.

Too late.  It came in the form of "hope and change."

We'll never know what Cheney's Intel Unit was telling those guys behind the scenes. I distinctly remember one congressman saying Cheney's people told him Saddam had drones that could reach the east coast with nerve gas. Total BS, but scary. They wanted war, they got it, and they killed anybody who got in their way.

I've looked for that article since and it's pretty much gone down the memory hole like so much other stuff.

Still, they should have know they were liars. I could tell and I'm nobody.
 
2013-03-20 12:36:32 AM  
So, he doesn't know about the 100+ Democrats who voted for the authorization to use force in Iraq?
 
2013-03-20 12:37:02 AM  
I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love.

Sorry, it doesn't work that way.  You chose to be part of a war machine?

Yours is not to reason why, yours is but to do and die.

Since this is fark:


Tune in tomorrow for Rush Limbaugh Resurrects "Phony Soldiers" thread.

Um, you mean 82.  He doesn't mention the 215 Republicans who voted for it either.

it's not that nobody cares, everyone cares about it, but we can't figure out what to do about it. sure, there's always the second amendment solution, but there's got to be a more peaceful, more permanent way to solve it or we are no better than mindless animals.

Also, a reminder, lots of prominent Democrats talked about Iraq's WMDs, many before Bush was elected.

Lots of bad came of this but it was hardly one-sided.
 
2013-03-20 12:41:01 AM  
I can agree with him, but my father, an 82 year old Korean war vet, who has been on the verge of death for the last 10 years, the VA has been incredible, from his mobility scooter, the ramp they built on my parents back porch, to the lift the put on my parents stairs.  And he spends at least 1 week a month in the VA getting treated for UTIs, and the nurses and rehab specialists they send to the house, not too mention the meds, the catheters and the diapers, and when he goes there at least twice a month in an ambulance, they do a spot on job.

Thunderpipes: Traitors are heroes?


So being wounded in Bush/Cheney's cash grab for Haliburton makes you a traitor?

You really are one of the worst excuses for a "human" on the internet. I don't even care that I'm falling for your troll. You are a piece of shiat. I would throw away the shoe that stepped on your steaming, parasite filled steaming pile.
 
2013-03-20 12:41:06 AM  
Congress may have been misled by the bad intel.. but they should have known better.  When they voted to authorized Bush to use force(something they said was just a formality, to show Saddam we were serious), I was doing my best impression of Admiral Ackbar.

May his passing be quick and with dignity. And that he live his last days with peace of mind.
 
2013-03-20 12:41:45 AM  
That's so depressing.
May he eventually rest in peace.

Our nation has learned very little, sadly.
We re-elected those monsters and it took until what, 2011 for most people (conservatives eventually) to be against Iraq instead of for it?
