government who has the final say. yes, we could protest until we are blue in the face and I still dont think this would stop.
Actually we do,XPhiles. It's what happens behind the scenes. All of us need to call our congressmen and senators. We have stopped things before
and people always seem to forget we go to the wire in some circumstances. I bet you that thos has happened moretimes than you count with amendments
and laws that effected you. It's just you have never realized it because it's part of the fabric of America now.
Right now as we speak, Cheney is going to testify this week.
Folks,he's backed into a corner. The evidence that this man outed a C.I.A. agent is overwhelming. This is a dangerous move when Cheney gets on the
stands. He's facing treason and he's put every figure head in washington in a cowering position. We are dealing with a nonamerican but a paranoid
nationalist who thinks he is entitled to any wealth and power. How anyone in their right mind chose this man to be VP, it's beyond me.
XPhiles, I hear a percentage of people on here who are so far gone into delusion it's not funny when it comes to our military. They believe this
symbolic madness and there is no breaking point. This is the same thing that happened to Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire. We are at that
"Rubicon" If we cross it I am damn sure positive we can't go back and whatever damage we cause. Our rate of military casualties will be accelerated
so fast we won't know what to do except just watch.
We have "70,000" of contract soldiers from BlackWater Security in Iraq. Everybody think about that simple startling fact. We privatized this
conflict in the middle east BIGTIME. Because we don't have the volunteers needed to go to combat in a region such as this. And people can pretend to
deny it all you want but that's what's going on. We are splintering our army over some angry factions of a war torn country.
If we attack Iran, these blackwater soldiers will want to get in this country for contract work. And the iranians will not drop their weapons because
they look intimidating. And these people will not back down and escalate this conflict into other regions. Because that's their revenue. The threat
of terror, it's perpetual.
If we do attack, remember every single document from Project for the New American Century,AEI,Heritage Foundation and remember this simple fact. None
of these vultures would ever rock Dog Tags, helmet and strap a Military Issue Rifle to fight for our country. These pundits play on your emotions
because this is how they get their revenue for their aggressive policies and "Foundations" Washington Mercenaries disguised in 3 Piece Suits.
Here's some funfacts:
1) Iran is 3 times the size of Iraq.
This b.s. it's just a bomb strike. The president is a dunderhead the people will rise up and we will lose all that momentum for these
people to turn against the mullah government. If we do this, it's the equivalent of juggling 3 Iraq's at once. We can't do that and yes,
eventually like all countries, you have to fold your hand and back away from the poker table.
2) The revolutionary guard is over a million.
And they will go to Iraq and they will make our soldiers and their families go through some of the most gut wrenching horrific scenes. People are
living in a morphine induced dream state if you think Iranians will let you occupy them. And this president isn't equipped to lead a battle in Rhode
Island let alone the Middle East. Let's remember, Bush acolytes. This guy was a cheerleader at Yale. His experience in Wartime is zilch. He has no
comprehension or understanding of Military strategy. None...Zero...nada the goose egg. He has a fake texan accent because he doesn't have a real
3) Destroying the Reform movement will be devasting to this country and abroad
This movement will rise up against the West and I gurantee you most people will sit here just gawking. All of the ones crying for war with the
bullhorn will be in awe of the destruction we have caused on our military.
Be in complete denial and not be able to register what happened. And some will have the audacity to blame the "Liberal Media" While others will be
traumatized beyond recognition. They will curl up into a fetal position
4) We don't have the infrastructure to care for this many soldiers in a expansive War.
This is a big one hardly anyone is talking about. And I gotta tell you, this is probably one of the most ignorant aspects of all of this. I don't
know about anyone here, but I have no desire to serve a country where there is no proper Veteran/Health care or any intention to fix this. Our
veterans right now as we speak are committing suicide and many are homeless. And the news isn't reporting this. Sean Hannity isn't reporting
This president and it;s acolytes are so far out of touch, they have no idea what "Support the Military" actually means. Jt doesn't mean to rape and
pillage the men and women of the military just because you are angry at what you perceive as a foreign threat. There will be hundreds and thousands of
collective threats if we pursue this maniacal "vision" I suggest you get over it real quick
Anyone who thinks that is seriously just being manipulated for a shield against their foreign policies. The cuts that this administration has done on
our military in the time of war is insane and astounding all at once. For what? For more tax breaks for the wealthy. This has got to stop immediately.
We are KILLING our country,period
And you might as well erase that "Conservative" brand next to your name. Because if you let this administration do a perpetual war with no proper
health care system for our veterans, you aren't a conservative you have morphed into a nationalist extremist totaltarian. The very thing you were
afraid that the Left would become, you have morphed into.
In short, this isn't America anymore if we let this happen to our military. And this won't be a democracy but authoritarian state.
