Photo chosen to get a few more undecided votes to vote Democrat, and motivate their base to vote.
The link is not working. But then again, it might be me.
linky no worky
It's not you.
This election will reflect growing impatience....justifiably in my opinion.
I can't post what I really want to say, so I'll just say, "(@*$%&*@%&!)(_!(&($%&%^@_(^#$!)*(%&$)(%&"!!!!!!!
It's not you. It's them.

Not you.....the NYT yanked their link.
We have the lowest casualty rate we've had for any war we've ever had apart from the first Gulf War. But if you show every American that gets shot on the front page of the NY times, while never mentioning much less showing the enemy dead, you could convince anyone, that we're losing.
I have one of these (Dragonuv) and I am very glad they do not know how to use them yet. With stories like this I think the story below is appropriate.
A HISTORY LESSON Beer and evolution and other facts: The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization, and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: Liberals and Conservatives. Once beer was discovered it required grain, and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can was invented yet, so while our early human ancestors were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ and doing the sewing, fetching and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girliemen. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the trade union, the invention of group therapy and group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided. Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth,! The elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass. Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish, but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule in baseball, because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, soldiers, athletes, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe that Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. The liberals crept in after the Wild West was tamed, and created a business of trying to get MORE for nothing. And you thought history was boring!
Damn it!....that could be my son....but it's someone's son, brother or husband!!!
Yeah, that's what my wife says too.
Burn them to the ground.

They would get me banned.
I'm not sure who I hate more
NYT or CNN
"...election will reflect growing impatience..."
That growing impatience to which you refer is being baited and hyper-driven by the msm, which is OUT TO LUNCH when it comes to fully understanding the long-term negative consequences of failure in Iraq AND the actual situation on the ground their. Yes, I'm impatient and want to see good news coming from the middle east. But I'm also savvy enough to realize that the msm has been playing this negative drum-beat since day one and are culpably responsible for the public's disquietude.
How accurate is your Dragonuv? I've heard the PPKs aren't as good as the WW2 Mausers. Can you get <.5MOA? Thanks.
Incorrect. Bookmark the following for future reference.
History is intriguing. So is etymology. Do you know the etymological origins of 'vegetarian'?
An effin attempt to demoralize America and voters for finishing the job.
What more can they do to help the Rats by Tuesday?
Just a little gift from the NYT to their 'RAT comrades for their BIG "victory celebration" taking place this weekend.
These comments are so absurd & wrong-headed, they can't be ignored:
1) You conceed the publishing of this photo is clearly political. Thus the manipulation of a "fact" for political purposes, when it involves helping in dissemination of propaganda or furthering the effects of enemy attacks are indeed born of evil intent and furthering evil objectives.
2) Growing impatience fed by misinformation & propaganda perpetuated by the media. This is what / why UBL was so confident the terrorists would prevail because Americans are so easily swayed in such regards.
:) Sounds like a nice lady.
Out in NM using the PSO and POSP series scopes hitting 1 gallon milk jugs to 600 meters was not difficult at all. At 100 yrds it prints sub MOA. In the right hands and a good scope it can be very deadly.
They were so very concerned about sensibilities they never published these, but have no problem publishing a photo of someone's son/father/ brother, lying wounded, in defense of their SLIMY A$$ES!
I would love to know the history of the vegetarian.
Absolutely! In my latter post I note I did change the barrel. It is still 762x54 but with a .308 bore.
I viewed the multimedia presentation related to this story at the web page. The slide show and narrative portrayed courageous Marines responding immediately on behalf of one of their own wounded. Their high level of training was evident as they moved the stricken Marine from his exposed position, watched for further danger, began emergency medical treatment, and called in mobile assistance. After seeing their comrade safely off, these American freedom fighters continued their patrol.
There is no praise high enough to do justice for what these men and women are doing on a daily basis. The NY Times may play politics in the blood of these heroes today but the day will come when it's publishers will be called to account for their actions. The American public will continue to pass their own judgment by seeking their information elsewhere.
The NYT is already hurting even though they will never admit it. So, what would it take to give the Times the final death blow? I want to see those SOB's (Pinch & Keller) ground into the dirt.
The NYT isn't fooling anybody anymore. They're showing their readers what they want to see. And their readers are going to vote 'Rat, anyway. Not a single vote will be changed by this photo.
Except that it might infuriate a few more conservatives to get off their duffs and help keep the barbarians from the gate...
I think this photo may have the opposite effect of what NYT intented. "Unintended consequences"?
You think that's political?
I know that it's evil.
see my post 47
Why are those on the left who claim to want fewer deaths on the battlefield the same ones who demand more abortions?
