    America, right or wrong, many of the aforementioned demand it. As a Christian and ex-military I reject it. I fight for America when America can convince me it is correct. As a Christian, I believe Jesus taught over, over and over again that WAR is IMMORAL and should be rejected by all mankind. As ex-military, I completely understand the power of a command. Right or wrong, the COMMAND must be obeyed. I've certainly seen the right and the wrong side of a few COMMANDS.

    The problem in Iraq is not with the American and coalition soldiers that fight there. The problem is with the premise of the war on a country that had no capacity or inclination to do any damage to the United States Of America or it's interests, financial or otherwise. The problem does relate to favoritism of the American politico for certain political outcomes in Iraq that exceeded the patience of the American exploitation experts.

    Typical Iraqi people had no animosity toward Americans prior to 1991. The Shia in the south and the Kurds in the north certainly have reason to distrust the Americans since that time...Both, at that time, considered the promises of the Americans to free them from the control of Saddam Hussein and his murderers to be the blessing of salvation they were looking for. Instead, George H.W. Bush allowed them to be slaughtered, harassed and even more completely distraught than they were before the Desert Storm operation.

    The armies of Saddam Hussein were let completely loose to murder and harass anyone or anything in disagreement with the Bathist version of Sunni Muslimism. So much for salvation. God clearly was not on the side of the Southern Shia or the Northern Kurd populations.

    But God reveals himself in the 2003 war. Saddam is gone. G-O-N-E. Captured and in the probing hands of the offerers of SALVATION, the opposing religious sects that comprise 80% of the country can now rejoice. But, wait a minute. The soldiers of salvation are still killing the innocents, the unsuspecting, claiming every (as they perceive it) murder as some kind of justification for "FREEDOM". Less "FREEDOM" will never amount to more "FREEDOM".

    I have been to IRAQ several times. My interpretation is that Iraqi's have less faith in the United States now than they did in 1991. In fact, most think the United States an occupying force there to exploit their only national resourse and not in any way supportive of any government that may view Iraqi nationalism a virtue in international politic or economic sense. In other words, as is common in America, screw the peons, make and take the money, and never admit it was anything other than a "freedom" operation. Personally, I'm pretty sick of the "Freedom" word being used by so many that work so hard to restrict it.

    I could go on and on, but let's discuss this for awhile. You jerks that only intend to call me names and make senseless inuendo, stick it in your ass and go somewhere else, OK?

    OK we so we know move from military expert to expert on Iraq because you have been there "many times". You are so full of shit your eyes must be brown. By the way, those "soldiers of salvation" that are killing the innocent are not Americans, though that is what you want us all to believe. I suspect that your true colors are showing with that statement.

    Here is an idea for you...why dont YOU move on. You contribute nothing valid to any thread on this board, you are obviously nothing more than a Bush hater and a troll ( a poor troll at that!) and if it were not for lib/Dem/anti war talking points would actually be incoherent. I would also tell you to "stick it in YOUR ass" but your head is there.

    I suspect the only Christianity you adhere to is when you sober up occassionally and say "God, I'll never do that again!". You are a very very sick man (and I mean that sincerely); get help.

    OK, so now we know how you feel about Psychoblues. What is your point? Do you not think that religious and military fervor in deference to intelligent consideration rule most often even here in 2006?

    Give me argument in the context that I propose, CSM.

    To get it straight, NO, I am no military expert but I have at least been there and done my absolute best. But I do have a discerning attitude, the best of America, and I do reject bullshit and otherwise lies in support of failing operations.

    Point by point, give me argument supporting your disagreement with my analogies. You really don't have to call me names or insult me with your gutteral outrage. I'm not asking for your feeble feelings. I'm asking for your well thought out and personally responsible opinions. As a genuine CSM, you should certainly be prepared to share your views and understanding of the problems brought before you.

    Holy Moly, Psycho is still chugging along at the USMB. Gotta say, buddy, I laughed out loud at your pre-emptive action here and applaud your efforts, almost brought a tear to my eye. Love you, man! :)

    You've brought me 360, man!!!!! Yep, I'm still around and that is exactly why I think USMB is the very best!!!!! There is no question, most American internet sites that have the audacity to purpose to create nationalism in their name alone are only shills for their own politically objective pruposes. Jim, you have proven, at least to me, that you can accept our differences and speak with intelligense. You've not disappointed, other than a few of your more unintended anti-American remarks, yet and I hope we can continue this relationship for some time to come!!!!! Ain't it wonderful that politics and actions made in the name of America can be so freely discussed in this venue?!?!?!?!??!?!

    I'll always respect you, Jim.

    Feeble feelings: Your ranting accusations, as usual, are nonsensical gibberish. Hard to argue against THAT. When you post a legitimate argument, you might get one in return. Until then, you are nothing more than an every-weekend-or-so aside.

    gonnyL, you have no idea how weak and immaterial you come across. Did you have too many GI JOE toys as a child?

    Point number one: innuendo: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. The least you could do is spell it right, ya know?

    Edit: Lemme help you out with that.

    I don't think you mean the legal one, so I assume you must mean the first one. The definition uses words like 'oblique' and 'veiled,' which would imply subtlety. I really don't see anything subtle about how other board members address you, unless you call be shot in the face with a 12-inch naval bombardment cannon subtle. I mean, innuendo is kinda like, "I think you need to check up on your resources. They may not be as accurate as you think, and I think they may be skewing a bit to make a point" when it's fairly clear that you are your own source. What I see most people do is something more along the lines of, "Do you actually believe that crap or are you willing to lie your ass off to make Bush look bad? Seriously, lay off the dope before you kill both your brain cells."

    Point number two: Why is it that two of our four most annoying board members must end every post by repeating their usernames. (the other one is acludem)

    Demand what? 'Heart and Soul'?

    Reject what?

    Then why are you an American if you distrust it so much?

    If Jesus taught you that all WAR is IMMORAL, why would you join any military...whose only purpose is to prepare for WAR. You don't see that you completely contradict youself?


    I think this is the first intelligent thing I've heard you say. But just because you have a problem with the premise of the war, does not mean the rest of us feel the same way. You don't feel Saddam was a direct threat to the U.S., thats fine. But at least respect the opinion of those of us that felt the man could not be trusted. Given his track record of invading and raping a neighboring country, killing his own people, using WMD on his own people, I don't think thats too much to ask. Is it PsychoB?


    Yes that was a mistake by H.W. Bush. He capitulated intense political pressure from France and the like to not go all the way into Baghdad.


    If you say so.

    Thank yourself and other liberal idiots for that. If our country was unified in this war they'd probably feel different. But poeple like you keep feeding the terrorists exactly what they want to hear, and terrorists keep feeding you liberals ammunition to fight your political war and further your politcal agenda here at home.

    I'm sure we're all glad that you liberals are here to tell us why we support this war. If our mentality was "screw the peons" and "take the money[oil]" then why wouldn't we have just left the dictator in power and remove the sanctions from Iraq and just buy the oil at a premium rate? Thats what I would had pushed for it thats how I really felt.
