Wow, I'm surprised you can type so much with Cheney's d!ck in your mouth. He's not paying you to think, son.

4,000+ American died in Iraq for nothing. That's what happened, and that's what the history books will say. Hell, even Pat Tillman, the bravest and most selfless soldier of my generation, said that Iraq was bullshiat. And that's before we even invaded. I cannot fathom the level of soulless stupidity a person would have to inhabit to continue to defend it now. You probably think they shipped all of their WMD to Syria, and were behind 9/11 too. I've never enjoyed putting a dumb piece of shiat on ignore as much as I'm going to enjoy putting you there. Now get back to work. Slurp slurp slurp...

I can't do anything for this man, or any of the others who will commit suicide in the days/weeks to come. It's already happened--their lives have been shattered because of the decision to go to war. These decisions have terrible consequences. Should we just ignore how it happened, especially when how it happene ...

No, but getting into a pissing contest about which party started this particular one isn't figuring out how it happened.  It's just one side trying to blame it on the other.

It goes far beyond political parties.  But that's what everyone of these threads devolve into.


Wrong wrong wrong. Facts are not meaningless. The Iraq War had a concrete, specific cause.

WWII? Who started it? Germany or America?

WhoopAssWayne: OgreMagi: 've been saying that for years. The people who run for president are hand picked. I doubt the real movers and shakers in Washington even care which party wins the election. It's all the same to them.

Years ago I swore to never again vote for a republican or a democrat. Since I don't see any difference between the two, it doesn't matter if "the other guy wins". There is no other guy.

Yeah, but what to do? It seems like the only possible way is a major culture change within an existing party - turn it inside out - rather than a born-to-lose 3rd party. It has happened several times in our history. The south used to be exclusively populated with Democrats (dixiecrats) until the party culture no longer suited them, and they built the 'moral majority' into the Republican party. The Tea Party was a hint of how that can happen again. OWS may have been another.


I think a major cultural and party change is eminent.  A lot of democrats are extremely upset with Obama.  Too many broken promises.  That could push a lot to other parties (probably the Green).  It doesn't need to be enough votes to get a third party win.  It just needs to be percentage that is significant enough to get people's attention.

Third party votes combined have come to about 1% of the vote in presidential elections.  Get that to 5% or 10% and we might actually see some change, or at least a few promises kept.

For millenia, soldiers have been haunted like this - but also for millenia, the threat of eternal consequences after death brought by cultural religious beliefs was enough to keep suicide down.

Now, though, the philosophy/religion of atheism is much more common, logically removing this concern for many, and this is simply a predictable result (regardless of any right or wrongness.)

There are those that refer to religion as a crutch, or simple comfort for the weak; an "opiate of the masses" etc.

Well good job, atheists. People like this no longer have that comfort.
