    guys i just read from an official site that the US has killed close to 13000 civilians in Iraq. so where is the liberty for those people? how do you have the conscience to support this war?

    even Jesus would be angry.. to the iraqi people, it would be like saddam is gone, but now the americans are here and they are killing our people and what more, they are also stealing our oil..

    i would like to see some replies to this topic..

    Well gee, here's a reply. How about a linky to the official site?
    When were you appointed the mouthpiece for Jesus?
    How about another linky for the oil charge?

    Won't open, I'll try it later. You still have the Jesus and Oil to account for. As long as we're on the question phase, how do you answer the Iraqis that don't feel as you do?

    you want me to accept a whole another view based on the view of one man...

    no, the majority of iraqis don't want us there...

    that's like saying that the whole US is racist cause there is KKK...

    You're being troll like. I provided the link because if you read, you'd find more than this 'one man'. D'oh!


    Moving along to the other questions your original post generated???

    I have to disagree with your statement that the majority of Iraqis dont want us there. Anecdotal evidence from people I know who live and work in Iraq currently suggests just the opposite.

    I also take umbrage with your statement about the US Army killing all those civilians. I do believe that if you take tally of those killed in the past by Saddam's regime, and now those Iraqi civilians being blown up by terrorists, the count FAR exceeds what the US military has done. I would also point out that the US military does not intentionally target civilians. It does its very best not to target schools, churches and national historical sites.

    I find it incongruous that that the terrorists and some nations become so outraged when a single bullet inadvertantly strikes a mosque, yet feel no compunction about attaqcking Christian churches.

    well all i can say is anecdotal evidence from people I know who live and work in Iraq currently suggests just the opposite.

    so are you comparing US to saddam, this means you accept that both of you are on the same level.. wait a minute.. aren't you supposed to be the liberators, you are not supposed to kill people?

    Nice pic from AL Jazeera....and I am sure they have tons more. War is a nasty business. The question I have about that picture is this: was that a death caused by the US or is the victim one of those people killed by terrorists?

    As for comparisons to Saddam's Iraq and the US, your statement is misleading. Comparison does not imply equality. Nice try, though.

    While you have made some statements and implied much criticism of the US and its policies, I see no suggestions for a solution. Got any besides the US should go away and stay out of international politics?

    stop wagering war, bring in other countries and give the iraqis aid..

    you put sanctions on iraqis after the first war, 500,000 iraqis died from that....

    that's the true amount, just incase you blame me for your stupidity again..

    and besides that, stop supporting the war if you can't handle the truth..

    Name calling is frowned upon. The choice here lacks creativity to say the least. Settle down.

    How dare I?

    Because I am a US citizen that's why, and when a person makes a specious comment I have the right to question not only the person who made the comment but also their motive for making it.

    I also have the right to question the validity of the photo you posted which is sourced from a known propaganda machine. I ask that you somehow validate that the photo is a genuine depiction of the result of any military action. How do we know it is not a photo of an unfortunate accident? The last statement is an exaggeration of course, but there is no way to verify the circumstances under which the photo was taken.

    for your information, i got that picture from Robert Fisk's site..

    now if you have done your homework, you should know who that is..

    how if you challenge the validity of this picture you are challenging the validity of Mr. Robert Fisk
