Another day, another attack and another life lost. Wonder if Rummy will be playing a little golf at the country club this week-end.

Isn't that one of those liberal "for the children" arguments? Whatever works for you I guess.

Serving in the military has its place but it surely isn't for everyone. Just ask most senior members of the administration.

"Richard W."

As opposed to one of those liberal-tarian "Bush is always wrong" arguments?

I'm a taxpaying citizen and until they take away free speech and the right to voice an opinion, I have as much input as the next guy. The ruling class elite rarely bother themselves with serving in the military (and for good reason I might add) and if it's good enough for them, . . . well.

Alas, I'm neither a defense contractor nor a representitive of a reconstruction company, so I doubt that he would be interested. I'll be on the public links with my fellow serfs.

You're right. Even classless cowards have the right to spew venom. But you're so low, so disgraceful, you have to spread your anger and cowardice on a thread reporting the death of someone so far above any level you could ever hope to achieve. This man fought and died for our freedom.

Yet a piece of filth like you not only chooses not to recognize that sacrifice, but doesn't even have the class to take his hate-filled garbage to another thread.

Oh, the hate-filled critics like you never do. They always throw out that caveat "...but I support the troops!"

Then continue on with their venomous trash, which of course can be read and/or heard by those very same troops that you support oh-so-enthusiastically.

You're a disgrace.

And what are you doing while another life is lost? I guess Rummy should be living in a tent behind the white house, eating military rations, and being shot at. Would that make you feel better?

You dont give a foot about our soldiers; anyone with even a small brain can see that.

It doesn't bother me. I just find it interesting how the demagogues and propagandists have been using the word lately and how quickly it caught on. Merely an observation.

Wrong. Some people have the ability to see big picture, others do not.

Regardless, I still grieve for the soldier lost today - which was originally what this thread was all about.

I'm quite capable of debate, thank you. I also have no problems calling 'em like I see 'em. And I will not apologize for getting emotional at the likes of this pathetic piece of crap feigning concern for our troops as he blows hot air.

Now, would you care to debate, perhaps on a more appropriate thread, or will you simply let your name-calling (albeit indirectly) post above stand?

An American soldier has died for freedom.

That never has happened before.

After all, soldiering is the safest of professions, and our enemies use paintballs.

We must immediately panic and slander our leaders.

And by all means, let's make sure we don't bother killing any terrorists this week. That might get an American soldier hurt. And if we close our eyes and wish really hard, there won't be another 9/11.

An uprising would have merely been a creative way to committ suicide, we saw that in 1991. If we had to rise up against our government, we'd have a couple of million firearms to do it with. What were the Irais supposed to use on those tanks, toilet brushes?

one American Soldier or Marine, not one. Blackbird.

Sounds like the crap the congressional Dems used to say about supporting freedom in Central America.

Well then, let us have some of that juicy wisdom of yours. Finish one or more of the following sentences and show us the boffo supra-genius reasoning that lead you to it:

1. Even though Iraq harbored, trained and funded terroists, it was not a legitimate target because...

2. We should not be fighting the war on terror at all because...

3. Fewer than 500 total casualties in a war that started with the slaughter of 3,000 noncombatants on our home soil is a huge problem because...

4. If we leave terrorist states up and running, I foresse the next major terroist attack will be prevented by...

5. The military record and/or golf schedule of major adminstration officials has bearing on the prosecution of this war because...

Wrong. Some people have the ability to see big picture, others do not.

I couldn't agree more. I suppose you in your infinite wisdom have cornered the market on "the big picture"? Come back to me in 10-20 years or more when we're still stuck in that s#ithole, and explain the big picture to me then. Perhaps you should check your emotions at the door! Blackbird.
