    Americans insist on perfection. Failure is not an option. From basketball to the space shuttle, Americans demand uncompromised success. Cheating is not allowed in MY America and neither is failure of objectives.

    As a child I was taught that nuclear war was pretty much inevitable. "Duck and cover" was the solution to it. As an adolescent I was taught that America so substantially won WWII that future WARS involving the US would not be forthcoming. As a young man I learned that even though undeclared wars were excluded from my teachings, those wars were just as deadly and at least as wrong as I was instructed. As I grew in age, experience and awareness I learned that WAR is politically and corporately driven. As a Christian, I hold that WAR is immoral. All this can at least be tacitly excused to the concept of PERFECT IGNORANCE.

    As a child I was taught that my "work" would be recognised and respectively rewarded. As an adolescent I learned that the work of my father and mother were certainly not fully appreciated by the powers that controlled the purse strings. As a young man I learned that even though I did as expected and ordered, I would be left hanging on a limb to protect the brass that ordered it in the event of a failure. As I grew in age, experience and awareness I realized that some folk are just out for themselves and to hell with me or what my predicaments or thoughts might be.

    I realized that the Democratic Party, although imperfect, best represents my best interests. I fought them, the Democrats, for years. I thought the Republicans represented a business-like attitude. I didn't dream, at that time, that their ambitions at that time were to further increase my contribution to this society while lessening their own was their objective. I never dreamed that their profits came first and foremost while subjecting ME (the Republican Newcomer) to advanced and over incumbering cost and contribution to THEIR objectives and to their own profit.

    I fought 4 wars for my country. 5 if you still include my service in Korea. (By the way, service in Korea still qualifies for Veterans Of Foreign Wars membership). If ordered to Afghanistan, I would still go and do my best to fight like a mad dog to root out the Taliban (by the way, they are now very much back in power there) and Osama Bin Laden and his cohorts. GWB stretched himself a little thin with me on his orders for MY colleagues to attack Iraq.

    I was in Iraq for my country in 1991. I saw things I cannot speak of. I realized then the insignificance of Saddam Hussein to most Iraqi's. I realize now that the coalition (mostly American) has killed far more Iraqi's than Saddam ever did. FREEDOM or we will kill YOU. DEMOCRACY or we will kill YOU. AMERICAN BUSINESS INTERESTS or we will kill YOU. Get it?

    Iraq is not and has never been in recorded history a peaceful nation. The "magic" of democracy has even failed there. I don't believe GWB has any "magic" to counter any of that. Murder is murder whether committed by a tyrant or a president. Many of them exchange nomenclature often according to their actions.

    But? We lala along expecting perfection from our troops and I know they will give as close to perfection as they can. We lala along expecting our President to make intelligent decisions knowing full well he has relied on self admitted complete faulty intelligence that has cost approximately 2500 American lives and about a trillion bucks so far. We lala along in our perfect ignorance somehow supposing truth to be abstract and unnecessary.

    GWB doesn't want you to see the actual horrors of war. GWB doesn't want you to see how he has contributed to the Energy Industry, the Military Industrial Complex, the telecommunications and news entities to suit his own objectives. GWB doesn't want you to see how the slanderous remarks he makes daily about his detractors are in fact slanderous and how his detractors are in fact PATRIOTIC and genuinely compassionate Americans.

    Cheating is not allowed in MY America. Unfortunately, ignorance is.

    Perfect Ignorance. A Republican concept they pray will forever be relevant to the peoples they rule.

    Well, since this is your opinion on war in general, American business specifically, the Republican party even more specifically, I'm moving this to USA chat.

    You know, he does, though some plagarism was involved, have a point that we're killing just as many, maybe if not more, Iraqi citizens. What's happening to the citizens is extremely gruesome and immoral.

    I present a link for everyone, though it is NOT for the faint of heart or the weak stomached. It has insight to the goings-on while presenting pictures of the victims of the Iraq war. View this at your own risk:

    Been reading your Psychoblues handbook, have you?

    Collateral damage is an accepted fact of war. People dying is an accepted fact of war. When you figure out a way to get all those damned religious nutjobs to meet the US military on the open battlefield, be sure and forward your idea to the Pentagon.

    The fact is, we do not target noncombatants while the terrorists do not target anyone that could possibly fight them back.

    As far as the military casualties you somehow fee the need to display pics of goes, when you strap on that uniform, tap the magazine and smack it into the magazine well and send the bolt home on a live round, it ain't for a game of golf.

    Funny that most Iraqis disagree with you. However, the facts do not add up comparing Saddam and Coalition. That 100k number has been proven wrong, upteenth times. Oh and before you start on the 'Whitehouse site, check out the source:

    Psycho, you never lack for a sense of bull shit.

    You just talk out of your ass, about any number of subjects, and don`t back shit up with any links, or information sites, where one might at least find some supporting evidence.

    What`s the point of a BS post like this? Really, I`m interested in knowing your state of mind.

    You sound more like a commie with ever post. Are you freeze dried or what?

    That whole "life style" died, what, ten years ago? Get a life pal, move on, put a point on the fact, that people DON`T want to feed you, or your brothers.

    You are one sad SOB........ :usa:
