We are not serious about the war on terror.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

I am literally almost sick.

>>Because a civilized society doesn't just kill for no reason. Period. Grow up.<<

And you think killing Taliban is "killing for no reason"?

If the people prosecuting this war aren't any more on the ball than you, we have lost.

There is no rule of engagement regarding shooting the enemy in grave yards, but the rules of the Geneva Convention are so vague that it lays all operations open to charges from the World Court. The President of Serbia is not the only one that can be charged with war crimes, our own President and his administration is subject to the same danger, much less some General or Lt. in the field trying to fight a war.

The whole situation is STUPID.

Hanabal to his best friend just after the Battle of Zama (words to the effect as I don't have the reference book with me): "They (Romans) are killing the wounded and prisoners as we speak, we would not have done so if we had been the victor...but there is none to stop them"
My point: "our president and his administration" is leading the most powerful nation the world has ever known; so whom could ever make a charge of "war crimes" stocl?

Lt. Col. Bill Cowan to appear on WMAL 630 to discuss the credibility of the "Predator photo"

he is saying the media is misreporting the incident, and that the problem is that we couldn't get bombs on target before they disperced(fast enough) and that it wasn't a problem with getting permission or anything. Maybe this predator was unarmed(some are)

I heard Lt. Col. Cowan say essentially the same thing on a follow-up to the original story on Fox & Friends.

yea i know, and Newt is still going around saying, "we had a group of Taliban and the decision was made not to strike them"(implying if I were making the decision things would be better, he's acting like a democrat or at least using their playbook)

he heard what Cowan has said and still keeps up the misinformation, I guess Newt has an odd way of running for president, he has lost lots of credibility with me and dont think that i could or would vote for him if he was head of the ticket.

Newt's been using that playbook for the last several months. He is extremely knowledgeable, but that makes him smart enough to know exactly what he's doing.

Elevating his position by diminishing President Bush's efforts puts him in the despicable column, especially when he uses false information to do it.

I think his attitude of superiority will eliminate him as a contender for head of the Republican ticket. If he should get so lucky, I've got a DVD of Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy, Kerry, Conyers, Clinton, Boxer, Durbin, et al to watch just before I go to the polls.
