Please forgive me, I will stand corrected - It is merely my understanding that England are the main people pushing for it (aside from the US) - And the rest of us (ie Australia etc) are merely tag-alongs...

I do not hear much about Scotland's part in the war (if there is one) ... Would someone care to explain it to me?

Your forgiven I knew it wasnt on purpose I just wanted to make it clear.
Yes, most people forget us....even though most of the time we are leading the way..
I wouldnt say you guys are tag alongs, you guys do your bit....no matter how small I bet there are some UK guys outthere happy to see your guys out there.
You know of the british soldiers and marines in bagdad ?
Black watch (scottish regiment) was the unit, along with some RM and I think some other army units like REME.

Oh yeah, you are from Kentucky, well just as you joke about Tennessee and Indiana.....

Btw I lived less than an hour from Louisville and worked din Carrolton for a long time. I like Kentucky but that is why Indiana had to build bridges so the Kentuckians could swim across in the shade.


Its a joke so don't take it personally.

Does this make you sad? Double Standards?

wat was it we were slugging each other about?
in ani case, it depends on wat the situation goes on in Iraq. u see the news about terrorists and insurgets who commit martyrdom, does that mean we lost that battle, that we couldnt prevent that martyr from killing himself. does it mean that an insurgent kills an Iraqi official the war is over? it depends on the results and wat history says about this war. if somehow we able to help the Iraqi police and army able to help secure the country and make life hell for the insurgents and terrorists to the point that their tactics will not work then it must be we are winning. u have terrorists and insurgents killing Iraqi forces but the forces are still flourishing, u have terrorists killing innocent people even intentionally but it does not deter them from voting and going for democracy. the terrorists can commit martyrdom all they want but they aint gonna win. and they aint getting a magic carpet ride to paradise since they killed Muslims. so they lost and we won.

I have no illusions about the NWO having planned and set-up the terrorists as well as the Iraq wars etc. No doubt about that.

Nevertheless, once the terrorists were wound up and set loose; once Saddam was so involved in the thick of all the terrorist support and planning . . . it would have been insanity to have failed to take him out.

And, you seem to forget that more Marines have died from motorbike accidents after returning to the USA than died in combat in Afghanistan.

I find your perspective grossly lacking on more than one occasion.
