If you think any of this shit is funny, then you have larger issues than I do, and it's obvious you should be seeing my mental health professional. 

I can assure you there are a lot of people that lost their lives over there for a BS war, and now they are sending more to die. I find nothing about any of this amusing in the least. There is nothing funny about any of this.

The current trend of laughing at everything is self-defeating and like the Joker you will laugh your way into the grave.

Sure, you call it whining. I call it how I see it. A bunch of grown men with the mindset of children pretending to "deal" with getting screwed daily by dodging the bullet of being the first guy to lose everything while laughing at the misfortune of others. 

Yeah, go fuck yourself and your overly entitled opinion of moral relativism. Your very lifestyle is built upon the graves of the same people whom you are laughing at. I find nothing amusing about any of this, and if you POS's can't handle that, then I think you need to do some soul searching, because some of you have apparently lost all sense of reality and are merely laughing about how fucked up things are getting.

Dont take out your frustrations on us just because you are too cowardly to go after the real clowns who are responsible for this crock of shit, and by the way, nobody is forcing any soldier to participate and die in these sham ME wars.

Not fair. There are some folks (not all of our soldiers, I grant you that) who are born with a protective instinct. What they do is noble. That wonderful, natural, instinct is being exploited by the powers that be. The soldiers are being put in a hellish spot. They believe, not in the politicians, but in the concept of the country and protecting it while the rest of us live lives worth protecting (or not) free. That they believe it does not make them stupid, just wonderfully idealistic. If anything, we have failed them by allowing these politicans to wander so far away from the constitition.

There are wolves, sheep, and watch dogs. Watchdogs are good guys and gals. Please don't dis them by over generalizing.

I was talking more about all of the people over there that died. 


It only goes to show where some of your biases are to those of you who think I meant only the soldiers.


I was 100% right though, none of you can stand here and say making fun of people whom died is in any way shape or form respectful of the lives that were stolen unjustly by these would be tyrants. It's not a matter of who was killed, just that they were killed in the games of mad-men. 


You can call me noble or whatever BS label you want, you just need to remember it was you that labelled me. You are the one that is classifying me so you can compartmentalize what I say so you don't have to process it directly. Just remember that the next time you see my post. You guys are part of the problem if you're laughing at the topic of their deaths caused by these people.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - "The U.S. war in Iraq has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest, a study released on Thursday said.

The war has killed at least 134,000 Iraqi civilians and may have contributed to the deaths of as many as four times that number..."

In addition, 4486 American deaths and up to 50,000 wounded.

All for nothing. A war we should never have started in the first place.

Despite my attempt to make light of the events in Iraq, I find nothing humorous about the loss of life and treasure for which our past and present leaders should be held responsible.

Just pure evil.

If the best friend was yours and if you are the one who was there with him, then you were both volunteers. Volentia non fit injuria. The Iraqi people and their country were not volunteers in the rivers of blood opened by USUK for Israhell; the children born with the most abominable deformaties were not volunteers; the 500,000 dead children that that Joo bitch Albright thought were worth it were not volunteers, the despoiling of Iraq, once the most advanced arab country in services and infrastructure, was not the action or wish of Iraqi. No, that would have been carried out by the fucking volunteers, the scumbags who pissed on the ragheads and raped and killed and burned their children. or just shot whole families. HooRah, USA USA USA! I want to say that I hope you are haunted to you soon to be dying day; but my Christian upbringing gives me pause, and I say that I hope that some day soon you can comes to terms with your time there and seek forgiveness and indeed forgive yourself and then perhaps go on to live a life of true courage and meaning and useful productivity.

Not to split hairs, but HMMWVs have a turn switch. 1/4 turn, wait a couple of seconds for your glow plugs to warm up, light goes off, another 1/4 turn and your engine turns over and starts. Same goes for some of the many different MRAP vehicles.

Some of our older armored vehicles such as Tanks, IFVs, APCs (and yes, some MRAPs) have a separate master power switch and a start button.

It's all technicalities. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't W in his flight suit standing in front of the mission accomplished banner, but I suppose each one blends into the other after awhile.

You can blame the worst of Iraq on either of them.

But there is no denying, we have had the most pitiful back to back presidents in U.S. history.

And after a horrible first term, we put them back into power again.

Who is the bigger fool?

I would claim the president's have gotten progressively worse since JFK, but that's only because those are the only ones I remember.

Re downtrend since JFK... generally a trend, but broken by RReagan. Nixon had some good points, well, 2 anyway... one was that he at least was on our side!

It's kind of notable, that nobody who isn't pitiful, or sleazy, even wants to run for president. I would sign onto a Constitutional amendment that said you had to serve at least one term as a state governor, in order to run for president.  (Yeah, I know, W would have qualified.  I'm open to suggestions.... )

Your comment assumes there is some difference between who we elect and who they let us elect. Your disdain for the outcomes would seem to suggest you understand there is no difference. And yet you give credence to the system and the ability of your vote to change the dynamic. Do you get dizzy at all during the day?

No. The equipment supposedly pilfered from Iraq is the cover story. DON'T FALL FOR IT. ISIS is nothing but an iteration of "the opposition" that the State Department buffoons have been funding to "bring democracy" to Syria.

You know. Like they brought democracy to Egypt. And Libya.

An opposition which, having duly received their M16s from the polymath Harvard grads in Obama's employ, all of a sudden decided that Assad was too hard a nut to crack compared with Maliki.

Slam, bam, "Thank you ma'am," our Kenyan president gets bent over by the Muzzies yet again...

Yup. But they also serve a US purpose in Iraq. They are permitting Obama to send the troops back.

The neocons are using ISIS to bounce the US into Iraq 3.0 like they used 9/11 to start Iraq 2.0.

When the deadly toll is finally added up the B2/O team will be firmly on the world's Top Ten killers list, above Idi Amin, yet nowhere near #1 Mao and #2 Stalin, but not too far from Pol Pot or the earlier LBJ/Nixon killing spree. But this is what the American electrorate demands and votes for over and over again.

And imagine what the killing will be like not-too-many years from now when oil and food get really, really scarce. That president will be voted in as a true contender for the #1 spot.

Misleading. Obama wanted to leave troops there to protect the oil interests. Malaki refused. Then the US armed ISIS in Syria (run by a guy they just let out of jail a few years back - go figure). ISIS got beat back by Assad and suddenly they are in Iraq taking over cities. Strange events sale even for the ad firm of WASH DC.
