You contradict yourself. Iraqis and insurgents are the same thing. The definition of insurgent is when a population rises up against a goverment. Don't look for the definition online. get an old dictionary. the online definitions have been changed.



You have a somewhat simple view in your post so I’ll give you a little more detail than just calling everyone the samething in all rising against the Americans.

What we had there was Iraqis that wanted to kill each other over disagreements of Mohamed's ancestry that has been going on for 2000 years. This secular fighting was/is brutal to say the least. An Iraqi who wanted to cross the town to get new government papers had a good chance of not coming back. They would get arrested and end up dying by torture, all done by the establish officials of that area they walked into. Some of these secular groups also fought the Americans, but not many since they were too busy killing each other. Those few that did fight us are what you refer to as the indigenous people fighting the invaders, but not very many.

The next groups were insurgents under other countries support and orders with Iran the biggest supporter of them. Think of these guys as foreigners fighting the holy war for god and money, so pretty much motivated mercenaries. At first some Iraqis helped them but it quickly became obvious that the insurgents killed more Iraqis than Americans. If they could blow up a whole town to kill one American they would. They were who did most of the beheadings as a form of fear. Their successful job was to maintain the chaos to that we might leave and allow their benefactor nation to move in, such as Iran wanting the northern oil fields.

Then next group was who we would officially call terrorist, Such as Al-Qaeda and a few other movements. These guys are all about “The Holy War” they are who created most of the suicide bombers, but once again they killed indiscriminate to say it lightly. As example, thier holy bombers were some poor guy who they would go into his house and tell him they would kill his family if he didn't put the vest on and go to the market. Once he did blow up killing a lot of people the terrorist would still kill his family and move on.

The last was your typical power grabbing cleric or officials. They would have small armies they used for personal gains and power, and they killed the local populace rather indiscriminately too as they fought each other for power and territory.

So my friend, pick your poison…

Donny, that's fine and you are entitled to your opinion just the same as I am entitled to mine. The Iraq war is being played out quite differently in the UK with former cabinet ministers and an ex head of MI5 going before an inquiry board to testify that the reasons we went to war were questionable with regards to legality and the evidence was questionable. The former Blair government is probably complicit in the death of David Kelly who raised serious doubts over the validity of a dossier which suggested Saddam could launch a WMD attack within 45 minutes. This became known as the dodgy dossier and was used as evidence to get the House of Commons to agree the Iraq invasion. The former head of MI5 raised serious questions over the intelligence used in the report, suggesting a lot had been taken out of context and re-written to suit the Blair agenda.

I don't understand why all the fuss about this: it's common american military unintelligence. If it walks, it must be a terrorist. If it doesn't, then it's a smart terrorist playing dead.

U.S. ARMY: ETHNIC CLEANSING ONE PEOPLE AT A TIME.

As for the slob who said "YOUR TROOPS", I just wish those were your kids or brothers or sisters. Maybe then you'd know what pain and shame are.

In some other post someone said "americans are your brothers", and after watching this, all I can say is that my mother knew best in raising me as a decent human being, telling me not to participate in wars, to treat anyone as equally as I could and to always give a benefit of the doubt.

I served for 4 months (since in my country we were obliged some 14 years ago), and all I can say is that the military is the same anywhere: a bunch of losers that exist for no reason at all, except to show off their newest toys to other countries. But I mean, in the U.S. it's even worse: soldeirs are drafted from slums, poor nighbourhoods and trailer parks scented by money. I mean: is there any senator's son fighting in Afghanistan? Why should it be when it's easier to pay unemployed and futureless kids money? SHAME!
my dad is a doctor now. i was not poor and i did not enlist for money. i enlisted to fight for my country like my father and his father. so that people can live in freedom and not have to fear that a mortor could fall on their house at any time. and i think all HUMANS deserve to not be afraid.

someone has to fight to keep you guys posting on these forums. in Iraq. if they saw all these posts on a forum or even heard anyone speak this freely. you would be killed and buried in a ditch with 100s of others. im proud of destroying saddams regime. he was an evil man

thats great. WHO CARES!? does that make our troops come home? NO! does it stop insurgents from killing Iraqi civilians? NO

if you were in Iraq before we invaded you would know how horrible it was. if you were there today and saw how happy the iraqis are then you wouldnt care about our "reasons" we obviously changed things for the better

As bad as it is, and as right as everyone may be from their own perspective, consider the prospect that the military may be the private army of a relatively small group of bankers. That it is all about profit and nothing about foreign terrorists; that the army does not exist for the sake of the American people? Makes a bad scene even worse if true, so before we go any further, we need to get the answers to a few questions. Cops, too. Let's back up, remember to breathe, and regroup around whatever the truth may turn out to be.

i think its obviouse that what the insurgents are doing is 10000000000000 times worse then anything we have ever done to civilians there.


I just wanted to save this sentence because I think it really encapsulates some of the more odd posts in this thread right here.

It is ok to shoot some civilians because if not the insurgents might blow them up?

White Phosporous, who ever posted that link should know it was full of prop-aganda, it is a highly flammable substance but not poisonous OR a WMD.

While it IS a crime to use against civilians, this does not mean the US is doing that to terrorize civilians, i'm an Artillerman and I know WP (Willy Pea) quite well.

The Apache went down there thinking there was a threat and opened up.

I don't know what they were thinking but I blame their chain of command as well.

War is Hell, and in the profession of a soldier'/airman/marine/sailor it's something you live with.

What happened was wrong and a mistake but to use this to portray a negative picture of the US military is wrong as well since this DOES NOT happen every day.

Anyone NOT in the military should do themselves a favor and look up RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.

Okay Donny, this is where we go our separate ways. If you think killing tens of thousands of innocent people has created harmony and a better way of life for Iraq, then fine.

no hidden agenda. i just get easily offended when americans who havent seen the good we are doing first hand assume they know that the war is wrong.


Seems like a good place to set us straight with the facts then.


they assume they think they know that Iraq was all about oil or all about some politcal conspiracy. WHO CARES!


Dead people. People who loved those dead people. Wounded people. Broken families. The economy.


the Iraqi civilians are glad we are there.


Says who?
Most Iraqis want US troops out now


i have gotta more thanks from them then i have any US civilian. so i stand by my original statement of "if you werent there then STFU" because we are doing good things there.


Tell us all about them. I am certain good things are being done over there. The problem is that some of those good things are rebuilding hospitals we blew up and some of that stuff is really just bad. All kinds of stuff is happening over there. It is kind of a mess.


and the civilains are more free then they have ever been. they can express themselves without sadams mean cutting them into peices.


Unless they have kids in the van?


all the americans see is videos like this. the only see the "horrors" of war. if americans only knew the great things that have happend there and continue to happen there.


You have said that a few times now. Good things. Good things. Good things. Got it. What good things?

I agree and emphasis on the word 'odd' posts.

I was talking about this kind of situation in another thread today and something is going on around here that I can't quite put my finger on, but something strange for sure.

And what about the Downing Street Memo where Bush clearly stated to Blair that we (meaning the US) were going into Iraq.

It's all been planned, and in essence is a massive money grab for the Powers That Be.

If we weren't just trying to bring democracy to the Iraqi people, then why is their 8 Billion rebuilding fund gone missing ?
Why did we construct a fortress of an Embassy in Baghdad ?



And to all of you poor military servicemen, you've been had and unfortunately been officially punked by the Powers That Be.

They pay you squat to risk your lives while the Powers That Be rake in the Billions !

It is the very sad truth of the matter. That War is a Racket.

For over all of these years of warfare, How many Congressman's sons and daughters have we seen in uniform fighting ??

Not many.

Simply research the Pat Tillman story...and how corrupt the military really is, in order to promote their political wars.

I would like all of you to answer this:

1. Is it ok with you for Iran, Syria and Hizbollah to have WMD ????


No. Nor is it OK that any other country has them, least of all countries like the USA, Russia, Israel, etc., that use them to back expansionist foreign policies. Don't forget, America has already twice used nuclear warheads on civilian populations and the world has been on the very brink of Armageddon in 1956, 1961, 1962 (twice), 1968, 1979, 1980, 1983, 1995, 2007...

The United Nations' chief weapons inspector in Iraq, Hans Blix failed to find WMD before the war and warmonger-in-chief Bush admitted there were none after the war. But you're not convinced apparently, so please cite your claim that they were smuggled into Syria and Lebanon.


U.S. investigators hunting for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq have found no evidence that such material was moved to Syria for safekeeping before the war, according to a final report of the investigation released yesterday.
Washington Post, 26, 2005

We all know the war was illegal. Many prominent people have publicly stated it, including Blix. Britain's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg caused a flurry recently by admitting this fact in parliament. We also know that justice is unlikely to be served against the perpetrators.

I would recommend Massimo Mazzucco's documentary The New American Century for anyone seeking an antidote to the constant mainstream brainwashing we get about the war in Iraq.

LOL that is still classified TS and I can't tell you. That is why you never heard it.


You must have made a typo earlier because I'm sure that you said you were a Staff Sergeant in the USAF. Things have certainly changed since I was in the USAF because nobody told us anything until we'd already heard it on the TV.

There we were in what we thought was a standard week-long exercise and it turns out our jets were off bombing Libya of all places.

this is dumb.. you honestly dont know anything about the war in iraq. the iraqis have been nicer to me then my own fellow americans. they have thanked me themselves.. why dont you know? CAUSE YOU WERENT THERE!

yeah insurgents put kids in a van and explosives and blow them up all the time. along with other civilians at road blocks.

they also make kids run up to us with bombs and blow us up... y

you dont know what goes on over there. i can believe im being attacked like this from you guys. you should be ashamed of yourselves. i lost my best friends. i saved the lives of iraqis so they could be as free as us. you guys dont deserve your own freedom. you make me sick.

all of you should step away from the computer and re evaluate your lives and go out and make a difference. or maybe your too scared you might get hurt? or maybe its because iraq doesnt have a starbucks and free wifi spots on every corner.

Oh yeah I definately support the troops that kill other people. Watching their guts and brains explode! This is our soldiers life yeah!!

Does holding a gun make you reek testosterone? Feels good doesn't it? Feel almighty powerful, now no one could mess with you, because you are a soldier protecting your country that you aren't even in!! Because you are a solider you must obey every command given to you! You must put yourself in danger for the sake of our country. For the sake of our country that doesn't even exist anymore! Your fighting for your country that more than half of the people don't even support. We will support the troops that do get out of the war and military. The endless fighting that kills the troops and other civilians hurts us a lot, and many families. The people who do join the military are the ones who have nothing to live for, besides suicide.

Decide what you truly want, you live in different times now, don't be like your father, or your father's father. Be yourself, be glad and happy that you are still alive. You don't need to experience what they experience. Experience what you want to experience.

Between the lies on 9-11 then Bush lying about WMD and the reality of exactly what's going on over there .....I just can't understand how Americans stay faithful to their soldiers? I mean, they're under this outrageous impression their fighting for our freedoms and protecting us?

Oh really?


The only Americans who have the RIGHT to say that are the Native Americans after the English stole their land.

Americans are a bunch of greedy thieving bullies.

The 'soldiers' aren't just doing their jobs so stop defending them. Their intentions might've been innocent at first but come on! Look at what is happening!! This is NOT new. It just doesn't make the news.
They're being brainwashed into these killing machines all for the sake of oil (and poppy).

Deal with it and do NOT let your kids enlist. Please. Stop the wars NOW!!!!

ya cause they are over in the usa killing us like that right !!?!?! you my say well they are killing us over their .......would you not do the same if they invaded your home!?!?! ..seriously dude bah your just a lame duck


You know that there are TONS of terrorists cells in America and England RIGHT NOW?? CAuse there are..... We are preventing further attacks on us. We have already foiled around 10 major acts in the planning but you wouldnt have heard about that because you dont have a clearance. We do this by taking and ceasing assets, plans, money, weapons, and training locations.


Ditto my earlier comments about Staff Sergeants being kept fully updated on top secret information!

When you next get a few minutes, read up about false flag attacks and then compare the highly-professional jobs such as the Oklahoma bombing (but allow for the practice element,) 911, London 7/7 with those of the underwear bomber, the shoe bomber, the London backpack bombers, the Times Square bomber and so many other amateur productions.

To me the difference between the former and the latter is "military" precision. Catch my drift?

im not a jock. i have a family and two sons. i dont get off on killing or being a "bad ass" i do what i do because i know from frist hand experience what happends when someone DOESNT fight for your freedom.

and thank you for making a joke and rude statment about my fallen brothers. im sure their families would appreciate your concern

i joined because i wanted to. im proud to follow in the footsteps of other soldiers. im proud to stand next to them in history. i chose this path to make a difference the best way i can.

sorry but posting on the internet isnt enough for me. someone has to stand up and fight for human freedom. iraq deserves freedom too. and they did not have it. they were oppressed before we showed up. i care about life and the freedoms of being a human being. and i will destroy any force that takes that right away from anyone. i killed the oppressors and would do it over and over. i chose this patch because all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. not becuase i get off on shooting a gun and killing. i wish the world wasnt in the shape its in. so that we could put down our arms. but thats a fantasy not reality. in reality evil men will kill and steal and maim in the name of greed. are you gonna make a diffrence? are you gonna fight? well i chose to
