2002-12-27 03:28:16 PM  
How nice! Iraq will have fireworks for New Year's!
2002-12-27 03:28:23 PM  
and so it begins.

Welcome to WWIII kids! Remember to wear your helmets, er.. I mean party hats!

Who is Pentagon?
2002-12-27 03:29:09 PM  
If we are doing this, do it quick. I would not choose this direction or course of action if it were for me to decide as an individual. But, if it is to be done, they have my wholehearted support. Kick ass, take names, then get out.

Raekwon (the chef?)

2002-12-27 03:29:38 PM  
"Wet, Hot Iraq action!"

Bah, I got nothing

2002-12-27 03:29:56 PM  
I have an amphibious unit.

Well said: that is where I'm at, too.
2002-12-27 03:31:06 PM  
There are going to be way too many flamewars to keep up with today.
2002-12-27 03:31:39 PM  
I'm going to jet-ski on over there and see what all this hub-bub is all about.
2002-12-27 03:31:40 PM  
Between Iraq, al Qaeda and North Korea, this has been one gloomy-ass holiday season.

Maybe I'll go attempt to get laid instead of just watching Dick Clark this year.
2002-12-27 03:31:57 PM  
Saddam is going to get anally raped by Bush's war machine. Can't wait!
2002-12-27 03:32:15 PM  
shiat meet fan, fan, meet shiat.

Caesar has started the war drums, and the cows are happily mooing! Follow them my pretty cows, follow Caesar blindly. :)

Party at ground zero,
A new movie starring you..

And the world will turn to glowin' green vapor stew!
2002-12-27 03:32:27 PM  
Good thing they'll be over there - it's that much closer to North Korea
2002-12-27 03:33:20 PM  
: Let's hope it's not a chain reaction that is beginning.
2002-12-27 03:33:27 PM  
They just told them to be ready to say to the Gulf withing 96 hours of an unspecified date.

The shiatty part os the two boats most like to go, just finished deployments to the AOR.

The back-up is the Kitty Hawk. AKA the shiatty Kitty.

2002-12-27 03:33:52 PM  
The two carriers are obviously the left and right boobies on the redheaded SbB chick.
2002-12-27 03:33:53 PM  
It's all Iraq's fault! If they wouldn't have stolen our mascot the day before the big game, we wouldn't be in this mess!
2002-12-27 03:34:08 PM  
er say = sail and os = is

2002-12-27 03:34:09 PM  
Iraq's military springs into action

2002-12-27 03:34:30 PM  
so what?
2002-12-27 03:34:31 PM  
Made me think of this:
2002-12-27 03:34:36 PM  
The Dead Kennedy's broke up WAY too soon.

2002-12-27 03:35:21 PM  
Mark it on your callenders folks, January 2nd is when the magic starts...
2002-12-27 03:35:31 PM  
This whole thing reminds me of the little boy who cried wolf. Every other day I hear that we're poised to attack. Will the bombs FINALLY fly?!
2002-12-27 03:35:36 PM  
A victory you call this? Begun these clone wars have.
2002-12-27 03:35:42 PM  
it'll start on janusry 10th...just like daddy bush(i think that's when it started in 91). the circle is complete.
2002-12-27 03:35:45 PM  
yawn. And here I was hoping that they'd leave saddam alone so that he could build a wmd and bomb the crap out of Europe.

Oh well. Let's get it on. Get saddam out of the food rationing business that is clearly one of his best methods for maintaining power. That and the bullet in the head approach to controlling dissent.

2002-12-27 03:37:20 PM  
I wonder is Saddam is a Farker?

Lets take bets on the date.

January 23rd.
2002-12-27 03:38:42 PM  
For all of you who insist that this is about oil, just wait for those gas prices to drop!
2002-12-27 03:38:47 PM  
Where is Slayerswine when you need him???
2002-12-27 03:38:51 PM  
Drain the dregs and leave not a stain in the glass.
2002-12-27 03:39:08 PM  
And why exactly are we attacking Iraq? Someone tell me cause I dont know, and dont give me that inspection crap, I want a real reason...
2002-12-27 03:39:19 PM  
The last war started on January 17th, even though the UN deadline was the 15th. The reason? New moon on the 17th, pitch black for the stealth aircraft. Why I predict January 2nd for the start of the air war.
2002-12-27 03:39:22 PM  
Duck and cover.
2002-12-27 03:39:28 PM  
167,975 square miles (excluding the neutral zone) of fresh glass coming up...
2002-12-27 03:39:37 PM  
Just yummy. My husband will be going to Kuwait on January 2. My brother-in-law is already there. *sighs* Well, what might have been a 6 month tour for my husband will probably turn into a year now. Damn farkers.
2002-12-27 03:40:11 PM  
Umm... Doesn't North Korea seem like a bigger threat at this point?
2002-12-27 03:40:21 PM  
Boy, this really comes as a surprise... ;)

Let's see.. when did I figure out we were going to war? Hmmm... when they started giving the active reservists Small Pox and Anthrax shots about a month ago? ;)

Anyone that is in, or knows anyone in the military saw this coming a mile away.

Hell.. anyone who watches the news saw this coming. :D

Kick some ass, Squids and Jarheads.
