    None of these soldiers deserved to die for the ego of an American sitting (and I mean sitting) President.

    Not ONE of these soldiers deserved to die in the name of the egotistical mannerisms of the present CIC, Commander In Chief.



    At least 20 American service personnel were killed in military operations Saturday in one of the deadliest days for U.S. forces since the Iraq war began, and authorities also announced two U.S. combat deaths from the previous day.

    The day's worst loss came from the crash of a U.S. Army helicopter northeast of Baghdad that killed 13 service members. An attack Saturday night blamed on militiamen in the city of Karbala killed five soldiers. Roadside bombs killed another soldier in the capital and one in Nineveh province north of Baghdad.

    The military gave little information on the crash of the Black Hawk during good weather in Diyala province, where U.S. and Iraqi forces have been battling Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias around the city of Baqouba for months.

    They didnt die for the President's ego. They died because Islamic extremists want to wipe us off the face of the earth and they were willing to go stop it.

    And they sure as heck didnt die so you could use them for your own petty political statements.

    They died in Iraq. Why? Never mind. I don't think you will ever understand the very genuine peaceful and industrious nature of the average Iraqi. We'll see milleniums come and go before we see this travesty of justice by an American sitting president forgotten.


    And, my political statements are not petty. You just don't like to hear them and that makes you petty.

    Psychoblues, go tell your Mommy that is is time to change your diaper and this time put an extra one around your mouth. When you get old enough to start kindergarten, ask the teacher to teach you something about why we are fighting this war and try to find out the difference between greatness, bravery, and cowardice. Then come back and you may be able to post an intelligent statement.

    I know Im repeating myself, they died in Iraq because Islamic extremists want us dead and waging war against us.

    I see very well the peaceful and industrious nature of the average Iraqi. Which is exactly why i supported liberating them from Saddam while you would have preferred they died as his hands. Which is why I want to see our troops defeat the Islamic extremists who are killing them now. Something youd rather see us abandon them to.

    When you start supporting our efforts to protect and liberate those peaceful and industrious natured Iraqis, your attempts to use them as an emotional appeal might bear fruit. But as long as you continue to appeal to them while at the same time you support policies that would have kept them oppressed, butchered, and living in a state of fear, it does nothing for your argument except show the hypocrisy of it.

    Once again, refer to the bold-faced type from your own post. Isn't it ironic that in your original post you claim that the soldiers died for the ego and ego maniacal mannerisms of POTUS GWB? And now in this post you say that it doesn't matter why they died? Nothing like shifting gears in the middle of your own thread, Psycho.

    And for the record Psycho, your failure to defend your statements with even the smallest shreds of fact make your arguments "petty" and unsustainable. Do you want people to take your commentary seriously? Then engage them with fact and logic. Hit-and-run sensationalism and emotionalism don't get the job done.

    That "bold faced type" was not in my original post. Whose sensationalism and emotionalism are you trying to attract? I am not trying to defend. I am still on the offense. What are you trying to defend?


    I always get the job done.

    Psycho, your original post claimed that the soldiers died for the ego and ego maniacal mannerisms of Pres. Bush. Then you followed up in another post by saying that it doesn't matter why they died.

    Go have a nice cup of coffee (or five) and come back when you're awake.

    Why do I have to be defending anything if I request you to clarify your attack stance? It seems to me that your "offense" is based on nothing in particular, and even you seem unable to validate your offense in terms of "why are you on the offense?" and in terms of "how are you on the offensive?"

    Usually that determination is left to those whom you are having a discussion or debate. As it stands, your posts are more akin to tossing a pebble at someone and then running like a scared little wuss all the time claiming "victory." How can you claim victory if you choose not to engage in the conflict?
