    So your solution is to support dictators. Got it. Thank you for clearing that up.

    Oh it's quite obvious because you are supporting the fact the U.S. supports dictators like your hero Reagan did.

    Because you are a conservative and Reagan is your hero.

    Sorry I forgot, you are only able to concentrate on one thing at a time. I have got to remember that when talking to conservatives.

    "Slightly Liberal"? That post appears to be whole-hog, in the pit, conservative hating extremism. Just sayin'

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.
    No one on the planet kills more innocent civilians in modern history than the US. You have been barking up the wrong tree!

    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.
    The Iraqis made it quite clear when they kicked our ass out of their country that they didn't want us there.

    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.
    I simply must get me a pair of your industrhial strength rose colored glasses that enable you to see the new corrupt government as better than the old corrupt government.

    Back on topic, do you still support a dishonorable discharge for these marines?
    Yes, as much public humiliation as possible for their shameful deeds.

    Unless you were for the invasion of Iraq you certainly do.
    I don't support going around the world and telling other countries they should run their countries like we do, at the end of a gun.

    We need to get our own house in order.


    It was a choice of Iran or Iraq at time and Saddam was the better of the two then. Familiarize yourself with the history.
    Neither were a military threat to the US, you evidently place way more value on middle east oil than you do on US lives.

    I don't!

    And this is in reference to what??? Are you certain you're responding to the right post?

    It doesn't matter what you support. Dictatorships, and theocracies, must be stopped from murdering their own people, or their neighbors. Luckily for the rest of the free world the Americans have been doing most of the heavy lifting. I don't blame them for wanting to change all of this.

    Sure, the debt and border and drug problems must be dealt with seriously or those hoped for entitlements will be jeopardized.

    I don't!
    They were certainly a threat to American Allies, and Americans had been attacked several times as well. If the dictatorships can stick together then it makes some sense for the democracies to do the same. I never mentioned Middle East oil. You're confusing your posts again.

    Than why were we supporting them under Reagan, when they were at their murderous worst?

    Unless you plan on bankrupting the country, we can no longer afford our military hegemony of the world.

    Our consider our people to be our most valuable resource.

    The Iraq war was about changing the oil law in Iraq. Iraq after the Persian Gulf war was of no military threat to the US or its neighbors.

    I never even mentioned Saudi Arabia! Never mentioned attacked it.

    You seem to be living in some alternative reality.

    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.
    The point is not who attacked who but when and why we go to war. We could have sat back and done nothing in WWII as well as Korea, Vietnam and Iraq but we did. We did and we won. We won because we utterly destroyed them. After that we built them up and are friends and trading partners. Political Correctness has ruined our militaries chances for true success and it ultimately allows people to sit bac, play arm chair quarterback and bitch about American foreign policy.

    You don't seem to get the point. Equating collateral damage and terrorism is stupid. It's not about how many, but why. Terrorism, extremism and totalitarianism are responsible for killing (and oppressing) more than anyone.

    The Iraqis made it quite clear when they kicked our ass out of their country that they didn't want us there.
    Oh, please. We still have units and personel there. They wanted control of their own internal security, and it seems they were ready to do so. We were only too happy to give them the driver's seat. From the beginning, the plan was to hand over security as soon as the new (democratic) government could handle it. You act like this was some out-of-the-blue condemnation of the US. Your perspective is delusional.

    I simply must get me a pair of your industrhial strength rose colored glasses that enable you to see the new corrupt government as better than the old corrupt government.
    You think the new government is the same as genocidal dictatorship? Well, let's look at things that are no longer legal in Iraq (as a result of the new government): Note: All of these were State-Sanctioned: genocide, mass torture, FGM, honor killings, rape rooms, mass murder, violation of UNSC resolutions, mass child starvation from selling oil-for-food, the use of chemical weapons against civilians, women being denied voting and education rights... The list goes on and on, but you just keep on pretending that a new democracy is the same thing as genocidal dictatorship.

    Yes, as much public humiliation as possible for their shameful deeds.
    A dishonorable and maximum public humiliation for pissing on a couple corpses? That is disconnected. What would other dishonorables even mean if we handed them out for school-yard BS. Your method would basically make a dishonorable the same as a general, since any (harmless!) dumb crap could result in one.


    Seriously, Cata, you don't see the difference between collateral damage and terrorism - or the difference between democracy and genocidal dictatorship. I'm starting to think there's no point in bothering with such insanity.

    I'd like to ask, are you Muslim? I find it strange that you support violence by Hamas but condemn US liberation.

    What does that mean then? You are not interested in the Saudi terrorists that attacked us on 911 and were the majority of suicide bombers in Iraq.

    You are just interested in the non-Saudi terrorists???
