    You did not but the Democrats voted for it.
    You do not possess the foresight, you seem to be oblivious to history, and none of us have the insight a President has.

    For others there are responsibilities.

    I only wish the enemy knew they were being supported by fringe kooks, but having the media kooks shovel the dung out by the ton... the enemies do not care where the encouragement comes from... Just bring it on ... and Thank You for Your Support.

    They have the dope to get their warriors high.

    Is there anyone here that supports and defends these actions as an exercise of 'free speech'?

    Oh, be for real.

    Of course it's about the troops...the morons vandalized a recruiting station....and what do recruiting stations harvest? Right, troops.

    Now, I realize everyone living in Berkeley is suffering from major brain disorders, but still, if they're protesting the mission, shouldn't they be protesting and vandalizing their Congress-thing's office or the White House, if your theory of their deepest love and concern for the welfare of the troops themselves had any validity?

    These are actions of vandalism, not free speech.

    I doubt anyone would come out and admit it.
    In private... some are spanking their monkey with glee.

    Their whole party were opportunists that emboldened the enemy.
    This attack in Berkeley pales in comparison to what the wackos did when the troops needed their support most

    Hell, i am no fan of the way the Iraq war sttarted or turned out. I am sure once we are out there will be many studies about how it was wrong and the many mistakes that were made.


    Speaking out against unnecessary wars and occupations is the #1 way to support our Troops. This "shut up during the war" mentality is Fascism from fear. Only those who don't care about our Troops don't care where they are sent or why.

    Damn, figure it out.

    Once we crossed the Rubicon...or the Tigris in this case....we were committed. The consequences of breaking Iraq and then running away, as you recommend, are clearly more harmful to our interests than remaining to repair the damage done.

    It's that simple.

    It's so simple I'm going to allow you the grand experience of identifying what the consequences of the course you proposed would have been.

    Re: Marine recruiting station under attack... again

    Whether or not you agree with the war, vandalizing a recruiting station is reprehensible. The recruiters didnt start the war in Iraq, theyre just doing their jobs. If you dont support the war and feel the need to go dance in the street about it, go ahead, dont take it out on the military.

    Im not really surprised the vandals lacked the testicular foretitude to do it while the Marines were inside haha.
