    Oh... right. I agree with that. I wasn't looking at the bigger picture.

    It's about time Muslims in other countries began doing something about the problems in "the Muslim world', as Barrack Obama calls it, and Americans should look after themselves.
    Agreed. Long overdue...

    Why the **** do you think they wanted our ass out of there so bad?

    It was exactly like in Vietnam, even the people we were there supposedly "helping" decided we were worse than their former oppressors.

    You're not the first leftist to support a dictatorship, even as one as murderous and dangerous as Saddam Hussein, and won't be the last. But even given that the Coalition invaded Iraq, can you explain why Muslims should be murdering other Muslims in response?

    perhaps you can explain why there are Muslims who are so dead set against democracy that they would murder their own people to get rid of it.

    You apparently know little of Iraq. It's not a good time to spread your wings for Vietnam.

    You've not heard of the Boat People either, I suppose.

    Most of the suicide bombers were Saudi, just like the ones that attacked us on 9/11.

    I don't support dictatorships, but Ronnie Reagan sure did. If fact he and Rumsfeld supported Saddam when he was at his murderous worst. He even got Iraq removed from the Terrorists Nations listing.

    "Apparently" I know more than you.

    Yes I have, and I am also aware that we killed somewhere between 800,000 and 1 million people in Vietnam, and to what ends? We have been trading partners with communist Vietnam now for decades?

    That is obviously ridiculous. We never had firm rule in either country... That Japanese and Germans certainly liked the rule of law that we established in their nations after we destroyed them. The problem is Political Correctness and how we fight wars and not how well we get along with the people. You never cease to amaze me.

    Evidently, its not necessary for us to have "firm rule" to kill hundreds of thousands of people. Japan actually attacked us and Germany was invading other countries, not the case with Iraq following the Persian Gulf war.

    If you treat the people like ****, bomb their countryside and kill their civilians then you end up like we did in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, where the people we are supposedly "helping" decide we are worse than what they had before, and therefore we lose their support and must pack our bags and leave with tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths and a huge national debt. You would have thought we would have learned this by now.

    Actually, I think it does matter. It makes a difference if the child is accidentally killed in an operation to kill someone who would otherwise torture and kill hundreds, or if the child was targeted by ones own government. Afghans and Iraqis are not imbeciles. They understand why and how things happen, perhaps more so than you. I find it odd that you routinely presume that people in the mideast are totally incapable of understanding context... like they're some kind of morons and cannot distinguish between collateral damage and being genocided by their own government.

    Comparing the US support operations (you compared it to S. Vietnam) in Iraq to a genocidal dictator is absurd. Let's ask the Kurds or March Arabs who was worse.

    That country went from a most backwards hellhole of UN sanctions to an internationally supported democracy. In 20 years when it's on the brink of the developed world, you will still be claiming that the war was a mistake and Saddam would have made Iraq a superpower by then.

    What the point? You have an entrenched (and I think delusional, in avoiding counter-evidence) viewpoint about most US wars. It seems you have no problem with other militaristic violence, but when it comes to the US acting so - it is most often 100% bad bad bad worst horrible. You refuse to recognize any positive results from the war, and even claim that the US support was worse than genocidal dictatorship. There's really no where for us to go.




    Back on topic, do you still support a dishonorable discharge for these marines?

    Most of them were Saudis but all of them were Muslims.

    Unless you were for the invasion of Iraq you certainly do.

    It was a choice of Iran or Iraq at time and Saddam was the better of the two then. Familiarize yourself with the history.

    You are not aware of any numbers because they were often inflated for propaganda purposes. You also seem unaware of "the first casualty of war" and will believe anything you're told, so long as it is anti American, of course.

    Those were the ONLY choices? I think not, how bout not supporting EITHER of them?

    Amazing your hero worship of Reagan for supporting a dictator. I forgot the Conservative rule, though shall not speak ill of Reagan in ANY manner.

    BTW, the independent label isn't fooling anyone. We know you're no Independent, you're just embarrased to call yourself a conservative.

    That was quite impossible during the Cold War and a war in the Middle East as well. Ignoring these situations have been tried but without much success.

    Hero worship of Reagan? Where did you see that? You know the rules.. Leftsits must always use quotes.

    I forgot the Conservative rule, though shall not speak ill of Reagan in ANY manner.
    Why tell me this? Do you think I care?

    Can you stick to the topic at hand rather than running all over the place?
