Have no qualms with that unless you are intentionally targeting civilians for the purpose of terrorizing them. Remember in Russia, Beslan I believe in a school full of mostly kids? Im sure you probably supported that. Because its logical as to why terrorists blew themselves up with kids. Probably wanted to use them as slaves in paradise in their ideology. And also knowingly that Allah is please, which I doubt it.




GI has the most powerful WMD to kill, and the thickest armor to keep themself from being killed, they only leave innocent people exposed to those whose loved ones were killed by GI. They have to take revenge, and the only availble target ...

So you're saying because it's considered "revenge", then it's ok to target innocent and unprotected civilians?

When you do so 60 years ago that makes you a murder still huh?
So I take it you'll be turning yourself into the police for the murders your ancestors commited while they where beating each other with rocks.

Should I stand trial because of what my country done to dresdon?

The GI has the thickest armour?
He has a kevlar jacket and a helmet, ice bikers wear more armour.
They leave the inocent exposed? Yeah and how does a US soldier protect them? Use himself as a shield from the enemy?
If they take revene on the availible target then explain why the camps are not attacked more?
How about somewherere I dunno military and not mabye a police station, or are policemen too damm paramilitary?

Come on buddy... I know you're WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY Smarter than this. You're being duped by a troll


If this person were the genuine article they would be able to acknowledge that Saddam had violated 18 UN resolutions. That he defied the IAEA, UN Weapon Inspectors and the U.S. repeatedly and that we had warned him of "Dire consequences, military options notwithstanding" as Colin Powell stated - yet he continued to defy the inspectors, the no-fly zones, the guidelines of the Oil For Food Program, his conditions for ending American aggressions his army after retreating from Kuwait etc... That he knowingly provided safe haven, financial support and political support of known terrorist groups who had exercised aggression against the West - Salman Pak, South of Baghdad - one of the terrorist training camps that featured an airliner fuselage for training purposes. His payments to the families of Palistinian suicide bombers. That he had been KNOWN to possess a bevy of bilogical and chemical weapons - in fact he had used them against the Iranians and the Kurds in the past. That EVERY OTHER COUNTRY BELONGING TO THE UN believed the EXACT same intelligence that we believed. But NO, Deltaboy - you must ignore ALL of those pesky little facts. For if you even acknowledge them, then simple LOGIC and REASON might dictate that you acknowledge the likely truth that lies within.

Let's instead focus on whether or not President Bush goes to Church!?!?
To which you have already acknowledged does not necessarily preclude him from taking any action that protects the security of the United Sates of America and it's citizens - as he is obligated to do by the Constitution of the United States of America. Forget about all that too.

Let's play in LaLa land and have make-believe fairytale debates. In fact, forget about whether or not the President goes to Church and what religion he is. Let's assume that it is his affinity for the color Blue and 14, his favorite number, that led us to war with Iraq.
What are the possible ramifications?

I'm saying War is not always the best choice, but it seems like US goverment's favorate choice.
I was always wondering why America is so warlike, is it because they have too many bombs and too little oil?
American got a shortest history in the world, but involved most war, killed most people.

Just a thought:

en.wikipedia.org...

during 2003, 41000 us soldiers thought they have killed atleast 1 iraqi.

"In this study, 48% of the Army soldiers who had served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and 65% of the Marines said that they were responsible for the death of at least one enemy combatant.Since at least 180,000 Army soldiers and 58,000 Marines served in Iraq in 2003, this means that a minimum of about 124,000 U.S. troops who returned from Iraq by the end of 2003 each believed they had caused the death of one or more enemy combatants. This would not include any deaths caused by Navy or Air Force personnel, such as those that resulted from the bombing missions during the invasion, nor would it include those killed since the beginning of 2004. However, this could reflect either more or less than 124,000 enemy combatants killed, as there are likely cases where one soldier felt responsible for the deaths of multiple Iraqis, where several soldiers each felt responsible for the death of the same person, and where soldiers were incorrect in their belief that anyone had died."

after that read:

en.wikipedia.org...

and count how many war crimes nazi germany did, and after that count how many usa did

More than half of those took place BEFORE the United States was even a country - ergo, the Brits, The French or the Colonials (Who were Brit and French!). And then crap like "The No-Fly Zone War 1993-2001"????????????????????????
Come on. If you want to hate on the US, that's fine - but just be HONEST and DENY IGNORANCE friend. You look mighty stupid posting such rubbish!

I think the pre usa wars had usa as a piece of land involved. Dunno..i didn´t make that list. And you are looking mighty stupid for accusing me of usa hatred and making bad info for just copy pasting a page
. And if i remember correctly, after first gulf war ended, your country bombed iraq on daily basis. Might be wrong. That was just to show you how many armed conflict your country has been. Bear in mind that no one has stepped on your soil to fight wars. Japan bombed pearl harbor and someone blew up wtc..that´s about it.

Give me a break.

Can you imagine if Americans ran in the streets and burned Arabic flags? Or if they all celebrated cutting some school teacher's head off with a sword? Then it would be no different. Should we be THAT proud or is that a bit too much?

You specifically headed your post with "Wars of the United States"

It is YOUR responsibility to ensure the accuracy of what you post or "copy and paste". When you do NOT do so and the information is exaggerated or flat-out wrong, Yes, it makes YOU look stupid. Now, taken in the ocntext of how it was presented and represented by you, one could easily assume that you dis-like the United States. I'm sorry Aaape, you'll get no pass from me.

The title was from the page also. And i do not see any wrong information here? You did bomb iraq on daily basis and in my country it is also known as the silent war which was done from the air during 91->
And is there a law what says one cannot dislike usa? Man 99% of my country men wouldn´t come here to talk with you. I must be stubborn to come and try to speak something sense in your heads.
If you feel the list is incomplete or faulty please say from which part. I don´t see anything wrong with it.
ps. Only things i dislike are 1.idiots 2. your president 3. All big countries who attack on other countries. Believe me my country has gone 3 wars during last 100years..last one lasted 6 years. And all of them were against russia, so i know what it does to a country.
And i feel sorry for the iraqis because of that. Maybe you will someday understand if your country survives an attack from foreign nations.
And as a soldier, i feel sorry for your soldiers. But one must accept consequenses if going to attack on another country.
