How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

gja: I didn't raise that point. Matter of fact: went to HARVARD (like 5 times more costly than where I attended), became a lawyer in a VERY lucrative firm, earned a LOT more than most of us will (funny thing is he took a gross pay CUT by being prez). Lived in a very upscale neighborhood (where I am sure the realtors wouldn't even return my call asking about prices "if you have to ask you cant afford to live here sir").

I don't give a damn HOW they came to be so bloody wealthy, just that they are (and were for a while back).


Obama had a really high GPA. He got grants and loans. He wasn't wealthy until he wrote his book and only then paid off his student loans.  Both he and Michelle are extremely intelligent and did really well in school. Yeah his race might have had something to do with getting into Harvard. I won't deny that. But he made the grades himself. He rose to the top of the class on his own.

lordaction: Obama has done nothing but expand the war and continue to eliminate civil  liberties.  The left showed themselves as the traitors they really are when the "anti-war" that were so vocal during the Bush years haven't been heard from since Obama took office.


"I'm not against war, I'm against a dumb war."

--the current POTUS, before the Iraq War, as well as the reasoning that was behind all rational anti-war sentiment at the time. Which turned out to be true, since the war was a colossal waste of time, lives, and money that could have been spent on some of the very real and serious problems we are dealing with today (problems that Republicans also created).


Thanks a lot, GOP.

GoldSpider: DrPainMD: That he knowingly participated in a war of aggression against a country that did nothing to provoke it makes him unworthy of the "hero" tag. I have as much sympathy for him as I do for the Germans who died invading/occupying Poland and France.

"I joined the military to fulfill a personal vendetta." is only a peg or two more noble than "I only joined for the college money!".

To the point of this thread then: People who claim to be the authoritative voice for entire socio-economic groups should have their mouths sewn shut.

We should.  Too frequently in this thread I've read opinions which essentially say, "screw this guy, he volunteered."

While such an argument is irrelevant, it is all too prevalent.  it is the kind of view that divorces culpability from misuse of the military.

Yes, bring back the draft.  Of the American people, broadly speaking, had real skin in the game, maybe then they'd be forced to consider the real consequences of compliance and their own political pressure to go to war.

Oh how they forget...   http://www.snopes.com/politics/war/wmdquotes.asp


"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."  
      President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998. 
     
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."  
      President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998. 
     
"Iraq is a long way from here, but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."  
      Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998. 
     
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."  
      Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998 
     
"We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."  
      Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John 
    Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.
     
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."  
      Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998. 
     
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."  
      Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999. 
     
"There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."  
      Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.
     
"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."  
      Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002. 
    
"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."  
      Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002. 
     
"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."  
      Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002. 
     
"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction."  
      Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002. 
     
"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."  
      Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002. 
     
"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force - if necessary; to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." 
      Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002. 
 
"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."  
      Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002, 
     
"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years,every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."  
      Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002. 
     
"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaedamembers. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."  
      Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002 
     
"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction. "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ...  
      Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

That is your opinion, you have a right to espouse it, and I will happily help guard your right to do so even if it came that.

However, where do we stop? We then need also call Obama on the carpet for some of the things he has allowed to continue, as well as a few things he instigated himself. And while we are at it do we go back through history and posthumously try and convict other presidents for their war mongering ways?

As for the article:
This guy is blaming Bush and Cheney because he experienced the hazards of joining the military.

I remember a news story from years ago when a joined the Army and tried to get out when he found he was going to be deployed overseas; he said that's not why he enlisted.

War? It was funny to them. To them, it was funny.

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

Wrote that well-known atheist and socialist H.L. Mencken.

As for the article:
This guy is blaming Bush and Cheney because he experienced the hazards of joining the military.

I remember a news story from years ago when a joined the Army and tried to get out when he found he was going to be deployed overseas; he said that's not why he enlisted.

No sympathy for the guy.


Yes. THIS^^^^

You join the armed forces then complain you have to go serve and maybe be in harms way? FAIL.
Don't join! Our military has been voluntary-only for decades.

gja: Alphax: gja: That is your opinion, you have a right to espouse it,

No, that wasn't opinion.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you are the Oracle and judge of all men!
Let me retract my assertion that your thoughts/feelings are opinion and accept it as prima facia evidence with no need to qualify it whatsoever.
(That's snark and sarcasm, for brevity's sake).

If Bush/Cheney go before a war trial, there will be a literal line of people who also need to follow suit. Not sure B.O. gets a 'PASS' by that qualification criteria.


You're wearing out your welcome fast.

I don't need, nor do I seek, your welcome.

Also, is that some sort of veiled threat?

Alphax: trey101: NOW THE DEMOCRATS SAY PRESIDENT BUSH LIED, THAT THERE NEVER WERE ANY WMD'S AND HE TOOK US TO WAR FOR HIS OIL BUDDIES??? Right!!!

Already in the thread, several hours ago.  And none of them started a war.


He also didn't read his own link on how many of those comments were truncated, taken out of context, or made prior to Operation Desert Fox. I'm still amazed people are trotting out the same old debunked bullshait to excuse the previous administration.

Not a threat.  But I've never seen you before this morning, and I'm already tired of you.

Yogimus:

Before we get too carried away here,  please remember that there WERE nerve agents in Iraq, which was the whole issue behind the whole U.N. inspection teams finding the storage areas unsealed after they secured them.  Furthermore, the military has been steadily disposing those stockpiles since the war began.

Well - no. You're, for lack of a milder term, wrong. Read the goddamn Duelfer report.

Joe Blowme: FlashHarry: Joe Blowme: Funny, he does not speak for my vfw post of the millions given a chance at freedom... I wonder what those buried in mass graves by Sadam would say.

so when do we invade syria? when do we invade north korea? when do we invade iran? when do we invade zimbabwe?

if spending blood and treasure for "the millions given a chance at freedom" is the job of the united states, we're gonna be very busy for the foreseeable future.

better bring back the draft...

Maybe you should brush up on all the reasons for going in.


People still believe this bullshait. Sad.
