    Come on, joe. You didn't think you would be called out on your story? from cnn

    Following a military hearing, West was fined $5,000 over two months, according to West's civillian attorney, Neal Puckett.

    The punishment does not affect West's eligibility for retirement and pension, Puckett said in a statement...



    Apparently not knowing where West's gun was aimed, Hamoody cracked and gave information about the planned ambush on West's convoy, thwarting the attack.

    West said there were no further ambushes on U.S. forces in Taji until he was relieved of his leadership post on October 4.

    He has a point though. How many of our soldiers knew any Iraqi's, Afghani's, or Vietnamese before invading their countries? None of these countries, separated from us by thousands of miles of ocean, and they not having navies, landing craft, long range bombers, icbm's, posed any danger to us. Soldiers killing soldiers because why? A little poem by Hardy below.

    "Had he and I but met
    By some old ancient inn,
    We should have sat us down to wet
    Right many a nipperkin!

    "But ranged as infantry,
    And staring face to face,
    I shot at him as he at me,
    And killed him in his place.

    "I shot him dead because —
    Because he was my foe,
    Just so: my foe of course he was;
    That's clear enough; although

    "He thought he'd 'list, perhaps,
    Off-hand like — just as I —
    Was out of work — had sold his traps —
    No other reason why.

    "Yes; quaint and curious war is!
    You shoot a fellow down
    You'd treat if met where any bar is,
    Or help to half-a-crown."

    And more than just a few of our soldiers volunteer now because good jobs with benefits are getting scarce.
    Just like the two guys in the poem.

    That just tells me that the Army is very good at protecting officers, no matter how bad their behavior is. I'm sure an enlisted man would have been crucified for the same behavior. I certainly saw that when I was in. It's why whenever I was told to do something questionable, I made damned sure I had it in writing that an officer approved it.

    It's the same mentality that kept MAJOR Nidal Hasan in uniform despite his eratic behavior. Had he been an E-4 instead of an O-4, they'd have bounced his ass out the first time he handed out a card saying "Soldier of Allah".

    Actually, the information had no value, which is what the hearing found.

    In fact, the supposed "plot' the man was being interrogated for was an assassination attempt on West himself. There's no evidence any such plot existed.

    The Times reported that at least one man named was taken into custody and his home was searched. No plans for attacks on Americans or weapons were found. West testified at his hearing that he did not know whether ''any corroboration'' of a plot was ever found. ''At the time, I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received," West said. "It's possible that I was wrong about Mr. Hamoodi.'' Yet he also notes that no attacks occurred after the interrogation.

    Hamoodi was detained another 45 days after the incident, then released without being charged.

    But Joe you have no fucking idea what the big picture is.

    When you say nothing to do with us.

    Just what the hell makes you so smart? How did Obama pass you up and not pick you for a czar spot?

    We're legends in our own minds.

    Okay, let's look at our history of war.

    Revolutionary War- Revolted against a benign constitutional monarchy because a few rich slave rapists didn't want to pay their taxes.

    War of 1812- Tried to steal Canada from the British while they were busy saving the world from Napoleon.

    Mexican War- stole a bunch of land from a weaker neighbor.

    Indian Wars- Genocided the shit out of people who had the bad luck of being on land we claimed. Good thing they don't own Hollywood, we'd never hear the end of it.

    Civil War- Well, half the country was on the side of the angels in that one. It's not the side we celebrate today, for some reason.

    Spanish American War- Beat up on a weak country to steal some of their colonies. Nobody in Cuba or the Philippines loves us for doing it today.

    World War I. - We went to war to save the investments of financiers who sold the Allies weapons on credit. People were so sickened by the disgusting spectacle they tried to outlaw war with unsuccessful results.

    World War II- We were on the right side. Russia did most of the heavy lifting.

    Korea - We backed one dictator over another. South Korea didn't become a Democracy until the 1980's.

    Vietnam- We backed French Collaborators who robbed us blind.

    Gulf War - we backed a corrupt Emir against a corrupt dictator WE FUCKING ARMED! Did we all get that. We armed Saddam. Until he turned on us.

    War on an Emotional State- After we got attacked by another "Freedom Fighter" we had armed, we went to war in Afghanistan. And we are still there. 14 years later. Still trying to "Free" them.

    Iraq War - fought a war for zionism and oil. Oddly, the people didn't feel great about being "liberated".
