    Frankly, I'm insulted by that hollow gesture.

    They've offered to defray the cost. Where's their offer to die?

    Its true. If you dare to disagree with Obama, you must be a hate mongering racist. Or a democrat. A black democrat. Even a white democrat would have to be at least a closeted hate mongering racist to disagree with Obama. And even some black democrats. Never mind. ANYONE that disagrees with Obama is a hate mongering racist (be it an open, closeted, or self-hating version).

    To my own disappointment I voted for president Obama and he's been a HUGE disappointment to me on a host of levels.

    So...OBVIOUSLY an open racist.

    You get the point...right? Several threads here have focused SOLELY on the republican opposition to this action, as if the only reason they would be opposed would be because he is Obama and they must hate him.

    That just makes us mercenaries...available to the highest bidder. Is that all we are?
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Well I'd say to the Saudi's you better pay up for Iraq, and toot sweet.

    Gas at an all time high sure fills me confidence that the OPEC nations are on our side of anything.

    I'll admit, this part, repeated ad nauseum, is more than a little irritating. What the f---, precisely, are you 'fatigued' by, America? Hearing about it occasionally on television? People who look down on the military and freak out if a recruiter talks to their kids are talking about how "tired" they are of war? Really? WTF has been tiring you out about this war? Your multiple deployments to your workspace water-cooler to talk about how nobody likes George Bush? America hasn't been at ****ing War, America hasn't even been at the mall; America has been home on the couch watching Jersey Shore and Madmen. "Fatigued by war"..... what an utter load of crap. I swear, if we get taken over by blue-painted barbarian hordes riding in long-ships we deserve it.

    Given that our plan seems to consist mostly of lobbing missiles, we're not offering to die, either. Defraying the operational cost is actually a fairly good way for nations that lack force-projection capability to take part. Again, just as Japan did back during Gulf War I.
