very nice post. THe use of profanity on this website should not be permitted to pass. Franlky, I am sick of these "South Park Conservatives" bring their vulgarity into threads where 90% of posters are erudite and polite.

I think the Liberals are holding onto the memo because it was typed from an original

We know this how?

Actually, I strongly suspect that "fixed" is derived from the nautical term - where you establish a position based on known readings or facts. In any case, only someone blinded by their prejudice would believe that anyone would put in a formal government memorandum that facts are being blatantly misrepresented.

I recall when the memo from Matthew Rycroft which quotes Sir Richard Dearlove was leaked, here in the UK during the election campaign back in early May.

Tony Blair's spokesman definitely didn't deny it. On the contrary he said in effect: "So what? Nothing new there."

Given that, I think that it's extremely unlikely to be fake. The issue for me at least is that it doesn't show what it's claimed to show. Instead it seems to me like some perfectly reasonable forward planning was happening prior to the war.

Vulgarity, obscenities and cursing are very popular with people that speak mainly out of reaction as opposed to reason.

I urge all my fellow Young Republicans to do the same. The Pentagon's recruitment is reportedly way down and we need to do our part to help out our buddy George Bush. The recruiters have been targetting the minorities and high school drop-outs for far too long. Let's start a Young Republican Club of Iraqi war enlisters today. How many of you are with me?

Very Interesting. A "Young Republican" using leftist talking points to stealthily call us chickenhawks.

So, Mr. Patriotic Enlistee, what branch of the service have you enlisted in?
