    Now that McClellan's book is one more confirmation of all the twisting of the data that they did to get this war in Iraq,

    Where are those who defended them then? Oh, that's right it doesn't matter how many generals or other close friends/associates of Bush put him down, they are all liars.:cuckoo::rolleyes:

    Except he never claimed Bush lied at all. And he stated for the record Bush did not intend to deceive anyone. But of course you are just going to ignore that uncomfortable part of his BOOK, aren't you?

    Propaganda is not a dirty word and does not mean that one is lying. It has many meanings and ALL politicians use it. Even you use it, as in the hit pieces you post on this board. So I guess, by YOUR definition you are calling yourself a LIAR.

    McClellan did not look convincing on Meet the Press.

    Most of the reviews so far except for Fox said he did sound convincing.


    I guess just distorting the facts isn't as bad as actually lying. Tell that to the families of the dead.

    They are counting the spoils of war, nothing changes only time. All wars are the same, the likes of cheney bush et al avoid service but grow rich.

    "The draft would randomly select eligible men to serve in the army. However, the various provisions of the draft ignited the most protest. On one hand, the act allowed those chosen in the draft an option to escape service. If one could provide a suitable replacement or produce $300 dollars, that person could escape service in the United States Army. In 1863, three hundred dollars amounted to half a year's salary. As a result, many began to describe the Civil War as "a rich man's war and a poor man's fight." In addition, the law applied only to "citizens" of the United States. Consequently, the law did not subject African Americans to service. In 1862, Lincoln had issued his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. With that action, Lincoln helped refocus the war as one of preservation of the Union but also the liberation of African slaves. The poor white population of New York City did not want to fight in a war that would liberate a population who could now complete for the jobs in New York or any other Northern City. In the end, many New Yorkers could not find the motivation to volunteer to fight in the war much less accept a forced position in the army."
