By that flawed, snot-nosed logic, the US shouldn't attack some more
countries with a few Al Qaeda members in it? Like Canada? We'll never
notice a little DU around our uranium mines..
The bulk of the terrorists flying the planes were Saudis. Saudi Arabia
has had Al Qaeda cells on their soil...why not bomb them, Mr. Jazz?
(I just love the imagery..."So why not bomb the Saudis,
Mr.Jazz?"..silhouettes, cigar smoke..could be a line from Kubrick's Dr.
The fact that you were at the First Gulf War doesn't qualify you as a
rational thinker, bub, as your other paragraphs so clearly demonstrate.
There's a fair bit of military history in my family/ancestry, unlike the
kid down the street who came back all thrilled and wide-eyed, because he
got to "kill real people"
As I have opined here before, there are reasons to go to war. [sarcasm
switch=ON] To have a daddyBush who is on the board of The Carlisle
Group, a company which handles investment portfolios for oil wealth and
invests it in things like defence contractors, had NOTHING to do with
starting any kind of war. (Other members include James Baker..yup, same
one who negotiated a Florida victory for Shrub in 2000, Carlucci,
Powell, the list is a who's who of political influence..google Carlisle
Group..you'll have chills....)
Just like Dick Cheney's stock-options in Halliburton had nothing to do
with starting a war either. Along the same lines, there was NO influence
on behalf of Israel via a group of neocons to kick a little butt in the
Middle East. [sarcasm switch=OFF]
Afghanistan to the north, Iraq in the south..almost ready to build that
pipe-line from the Caspian oilfields to the Gulf..ooops..Iran is in the
way....better get that oil before the Chinese go for it....(All that
IMHO *is* a reason to capture some strategic positions, but stop
insulting people by trying to sell them lies based on forged yellow cake
documents.) It's the arrogance that blows up MY skirt.
("these idiot minions will swallow anything") Isn't it Tim Daneliuk in
here who refers to them as sheeple? If so, I'm steeling the
contrac(p)tion. In my country, the sheeple have strong questions like "
oh, wow, man, will that fuck with the price of beer, dude?" or " How
about those Maple Leafs, eh?" " That's one sweet ogee bit you're
spinning there, dude" ^5's
You know... important stuff.
Wow..that's some strong tea I'm drinking here... off to the shop to make
some money for the ShopBot fund.
I am confused.....are you asking if someone would trade a child for a
medal, as if the award were some valuable "trinket"? Or are you saying
that the sacrifice is somehow "equal" in value to receiving the purple
It's a trinket. Good analogy for which I thank you. It says that your
child was blown away for good reason or no good reason, depending upon
how you feel about the latest war. Good night and good luck.
First things first.
I learned a long time ago to be on the look-out for red herrings and
I do not admire the writer, please don't use the old transparent
"discredit/shoot the messenger" routine. I posted the link to that rant
to illustrate the ridiculousness in what motivates some people to chose
certain paths to destroy themselves and others. Irony with an edge.
Sorry you missed my point.
I have read your posts in the past with a great deal of interest and I
appreciate your reply again this time. You are absolutely correct that
many wonderful things have been done by selfless, committed religious
people. I am aware of that. To use your words: I have
met and know some of these people personally. They are remarkably
brave, devout, and humble people, [snip]
What are the odds of Bush becoming the poster boy for a religious
faction doing the right thing?
I'm sorry as well ... I read it as an apologetic for the rant. My Bad.
The odds are small - but they *should* be. As the Chief Executive of our
government, his job is not to do the "right thing" because exactly what
is "right" is at least debatable and certainly not agreed to by everyone
in this nation. His sole job is to preserve Liberty by defending the
Constitution. In fact that's the only legitimate job for any of the
Federal government. By that measure, all three branches of government,
and all the regulatory agencies pretty much get a D-. The military gets
an A+ because they do exactly that 99% of the time.

After I was discharged in February of '72, and became involved as a
Vet against the war in Vietnam, I wondered how we had become so
hardened to the nightly statistics during the news. Today they might
call it the virtualization of war I presume.
Thank-you Tom for having the courage to be honest, to remind us of the
thousands mourning the loss of life, the loss of hopes and dreams, the
