    I've damn sure seen too much hatred, WAR and political assasination in my short time on this EARTH. I just can't get off on anything but LOVE.

    Killing innocents in Iraq is just wrong. Just like it was in Viet Nam. Killing United States Patriots is wrong as well. What is the use of mass killing other than to substantiate a political ideology?

    I didn't understand, fully, the implications of my involvement in the Viet Nam War but I've had ample time and education to understand the implications of the politics and reasoning since then. We lost the Viet Nam problem solution and we will lose the Iraqi dilemma. The facts are not on our side.

    It's all about a natural resourse that we, Americans, need for the health of our economy. We can find and exploit alternatives, but it's cheaper to kill people than to discover and utilize less deadly choices.

    Take a number my most loved TROOPS. You may be next in the WAR for ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL DOMINANCE. There certainly aren't any other reasons for your sacrifice.

    Saddam Hussein is in prison and now on trial. The Taleban is no longer effecive in Afganistan. Americans in general desired these circumstanses. Americans are still dying for the propagation of WHAT? The primary objectives have been met. Everything else is political fluff. The Iraqi's and Afghani's have the same rights to self rule as Americans.

    Did I mention that I think that the Tom Delays and Newt Gingrich's of our world mean very little in the big picture? They forgot about me and they are forgetting about you as well. It's a personal gain trip for them. Where is your personal gain?

    If you can't LOVE, I suggest you learn to do so.

    Psycho.......I won't speak to the war in VN because I didn't follow that one as closely as I'm following the WOT, but I would like to ask you who you think is killing the "innocents" in Iraq.....could it be the same people who are killing the US Patriots? Wouldn't it be prudent for us to eliminate those people (insurgents) for the general good? And, wouldn't it also be prudent to eliminate these people on foreign soil as opposed to having them here in America killing the innocents of America?

    It's hard to win any war when the enemy is aided by the undermining of our troops through the media.

    Is it really cheaper?

    In addition to Economic and Political Dominance, I believe the reasons for the sacrifices made by our troops and their families are beyond what you are willing to accept.

    Perhaps the primary objectives have been met, however, if you think the mission is complete, then you truly don't understand what our troops are accomplishing in Iraq and Afghanistan at all.

    I'm alive and prospering.

    Love is good, but one cannot practice love if one is dead.

    I don't think you followed the war in Viet Nam at all. Otherwise you might understand what I am trying to say to you.

    What makes you think I don't understand war?? Please tell me exactly what I would need to understand about war in order to understand the WOT. Are you trying to state that anyone who wages in war is a terrorist? If this is your stance, then there is no need to continue this discussion, because we will just have to agree that we disagree on this point, which makes the rest moot.

    And, what was the major influencer of American Politics and Beliefs of that era?

    Nope. Told you that.

    How fortunate that you live in a country that allows you to fight for your simple objectives.

    As mentioned in prior post...........primary objectives may have been met, but mission is incomplete..........Misson being keeping America and it's citizens safe by engaging and eliminating terrorists and terrorism at it's source.


    Wow..........guess I'm doing good then, because I certainly don't feel Bush has that much power over my life span.


    This statement doesn't make sense to me in the context of anything I've said previously. I merely stated that it's hard to practice love if one is dead......meaning.............one needs to stay alive first, in order to be able to love. Therefore, I'm willing to kill those who wish to kill me and mine, before I'm willing to "love" them.

    Are you back on this? Get a grip. You have allowed your tree-hugging philosophy over a war that ended 30 years ago define the nutjob it has made you.

    Welcome to 2005. Try it.

    The dude went off on a peace march in the 60s and never came back.
