    well pretty much the only property rights we respect now-a-days are those of the fortune 100.

    LOL

    I just channel surfed on the TV and realized that MSNBC is giving the GE zombies at DP their marching orders for the day regarding the conflict in Iraq. Half of them are probably just stupid people who don't know how duped they are by the media into thinking that there was no AQ or WMD in Iraq. The other half are simply disgusting evil liars.

    Yes, I have heard that. At least I have heard that FDR held Stalin in deep regard.

And that`s when I began to believe they`re getting serious about this. They want to go into Iraq." - Gen. Anthony Zinni, former CENTCOM commander

    Yup, what a lemming that guy is, jeez dude, turn off the tv alread. Or wait, is on on the evil liar side? I can never decide when it comes to those pesky central command guys.

    yes and there was lend-lease too. but we didn't invade fortress europe until after the idiot declared war on us.

    1. why is it yours?

    2. if it is your problem why should it be applied so arbitrarily?

    3. shouldn't the first place to confront things like rape, torture, and murder be your own state?

    lol, it's not out of context. He sat down for an interview for the Hubris documentary, and that quote is perfectly in context. You can watch it yourself. I'm sure you won't, but you definitely can.

    Zinni also wrote in his own book, "In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption." You can read it for yourself. I'm sure you won't, but you definitely can.

    The man has done countless interviews, written articles and books, all explaining what he saw and was involved in, as far as Iraq goes. Simply dismissing your opposition's argument doesn't strengthen yours, it just shows you have no interest in hearing anyone who disagrees with you.
