Oh for gods sake, GM, get a clue.
What the hell is the point of being dominant and ruling the planet when everyone hates you and would love to see your entire country and people wiped
off the map? whats the point of going around and blowing up countries for no real purpose or ends or mission, when you gain nothing? So what if we are
dominat? That doeswnt equate to happiness or a good healthy country.
Remeber the saying, its very lonely at the top, and Bush has sealed our fate. if the world did not disdain us before, the hate our friggin guts now.
What you gonna do, blow up every country that hates us? good luck.
For the record, Europe is already wrestling with internal problems of thier own, and they did defend thier freedom. You obviously forgot that before
we got suckered into WW2, the British and the Russians were violently hammering the Germans from both ends, throwing every thing they had to defend
This war has nothing to do with freedom. Americas freedom is as stake not from the outside, at least, not YET, but from the inside. Since there no
freedom or ideal here in Iraq to defend, there really isnt any moral purpose for the war.
i could care less about any middle eastern country and thier "freedom", and i sure as hell do not wish my commerades to get sent over to get
salughtered and not be able to fight a real war.
Europe has not gone to war for a while...why? Well, if you pick up a history book, youll see in the past 100 years, they had two REALLY nasty wars
that ended up wiping out over 100 milli0on people, destroying landmarks and irreplcable things of value, and costing them thier dominance in the
world. Needless to say, they arent too keen about racking up more bodies if they aint gotta.
And on that note, Mr patriot, obvious, we seem to have a memory problem. It was called Vietnam. We sent over the course of that disaster, over a
million soldiers, 60,000 who came home in pine boxes. Were we fighting for freedom? Hell no! We werent fighting for #, and we still have a whole
generation mentaly scarred because of that abomination. is that what YOU want? is that your brand of patriotism? ios that the measure of our power,
how many Americans we can stuff into body bags for some other country thats gonna do whgatever it wants?
I suggest you take a trip to Dc and check out that big black marble wall of over 60,000 names on it, and then see how much our "dominance" means to
you in Iraq. And then take a trip to arlington where all the WW2 vets are buried. See the difference. 200,000 Americans died in ww2 for a purpose. We
have something to show for their deaths.
Show me what he have gained from that big black wall.
Take a hint from Teddy Roosevelt. Speak softly, but carry a big stick. And whip out that big stick and goi medieval on fools only when you are DAMN
sure thats the only option left.
