    May I remind y'all that Iraq is a war of the president's choosing. No one asked him to invade that country; he did it because he had a score to settle with Saddam and 9/11 gave him what he figured was a good excuse to go for it.

    Damn, I hate getting into these political threads. Bush, Cheney et. al. piss me off enough to bite a rock and scare the daylights out of me, and yet the Hollywood lefties and the environmentalist whackos are just as bad in their own ways. There just doesn't seem to be any place in the political dialogue these days for a Libertarian with solid middle American values and a strong distrust of authority figures......

    I'm outta here. I'd rather talk football anyway.

    So why haven't we done more in Darfur & Sudan? Many people are dying in those countries at the hands of extremists, too.

    Oh, wait - not enough oil to make it worthwhile?

    Her Highness is at it again:





    Speaker Pursues Military Flights

    By Rowan Scarborough
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    Published February 1, 2007

    Excerpt:

    The office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pressing the Bush administration for routine access to military aircraft for domestic flights, such as trips back to her San Francisco district, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

    The sources, who include those in Congress and in the administration, said the Democrat is seeking regular military flights not only for herself and her staff, but also for relatives and for other members of the California delegation. A knowledgeable source called the request "carte blanche for an aircraft any time."

    "They are pressing the point of her succession and that the [Department of Defense] needs to play ball with the speaker's needs," one source said. The request originally went to the Pentagon, which then asked the White House to weigh in.

    Mrs. Pelosi's request is not new for a speaker, who is second-in-line in presidential succession. A defense source said the speaker's regular access to a military plane began after the September 11, 2001, attacks. Rep. J. Dennis Hastert, Illinois Republican, who was speaker at the time, started using U.S. Air Force planes for domestic travel to and from his district for security reasons. A former Hastert aide said the congressman did not use military planes for political trips or regularly transport his family.

    The defense source said Mr. Hastert requested a plane with good communications so he could conduct legislative business. The military flights increased to the point the speaker used a military plane for many, if not all, flights to his Illinois district, the former aide said.

    Sources said Mrs. Pelosi's request goes beyond what Mr. Hastert received. The speaker's legal counsel is spearheading the talks.

    An aide to Mrs. Pelosi, who asked not to be named, confirmed yesterday that discussions are ongoing with the administration. "It would be done for security reasons," said the aide, adding that the speaker has used military aircraft for at least one trip back to San Francisco.

    I made this post in response to a previous post re: Iraqis dying at the hands of Saddam. Nobody mentioned anything about beheaded Americans.

    Nice misdirection attempt, though. You must be a politician! :lol:

    Nah, jes a proud American-

    Here's someone more your speed-

    War resister met with admiration, praise

    Audience greets Watada with support as court-martial looms
    Christian Hill
    The Olympian

    OLYMPIA - Army Lt. Ehren Watada expects a far different reception when his court-martial begins next week for his refusal to serve in Iraq. For this one night, however, he was greeted as a hero.

    About 470 people, nearly all strongly aligned with his stance that the war in Iraq is illegal, attended his speech Wednesday at South Puget Sound Community College.
    The Fort Lewis officer again assailed the Bush administration for misleading the country to invade Iraq. He urged Americans to end their complacency and help bring an end to the war.

    "This needless war has cost so much, but it has not been in vain if we are all willing to change," Watada said.

    The audience interrupted him several times with standing ovations.

    I think we both know our stances by now, so I'm signing off of this thread to visit some lighter subjects, like football.

    Coward is a strong word. Of course, I disagree w/your opinion of Lt. Watada but it seems we disagree on most everything except being Bolts fans. So let's toast to the Bolts!! :icon_toast:

    If refusing to deploy with your unit isn't an act of cowardice, I don't know what is. It's not like in the 60's when there was a draft. This COWARD joined the military voluntarily. It's one thing for civilians to protest policy; a soldier is SWORN to defend the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and to obey the orders of superior officers appointed above him. This oath he took willingly.

    Meanwhile, his unit deployed and served admirably and courageously. This ******* deserves the gallows.

    Misdirection, I think not.

    You made a statement how you did not like the war in Iraq. That went into a rant how things operated under Saddam, and how he and his cronies operated. You made a reference about other countries and how they operate.

    And yet I dont hear of any Americans afraid to travel to those Contries. Why is that?


    If your an American, and you get caught in Iraq by the "Wrong" people. They cut your head off. Saddam and his cronies are still at it.


    I have not seen one beheading in the Contries you speak of.

    A lot of people joined after 9-11, maybe for the wrong reasons.

    They thought they were Patriots, but were afraid when the time came. And you are right, if you are ordered to go somewhere, you are not supposed to question why, you go, no questions asked. And as long as the president thinks we need to be over there, then I will support that. Here at work, we have had several of our coworkers siblings come home from over there because of medical reasons. And yet I still support our troops.

    As a former Army officer, my opinion of him isn't very good.

    I think if an enlisted man did this, then the punishment should be life in prison (at Leavenworth) - making big rocks into little rocks.

    An officer than does a cowardly act like this absolutely deserves the death penalty. That piece of crap should be shot, hung and burned.

    And that would be if he did this during a time when the draft was going on. Right now this is an all volunteer Military. Electric Chair with no water or lubricants, let him fry for a half hour before he dies!

    These are the key words-no one put a gun to his head to join. Many join for different reasons, but everyone that enlists or joins knows, or should know, there's a possibility of going to war.

    I'd dig a little deeper to learn if this turd inna punchbowl came from ROTC, which is what I suspect, given the type of Warrior unit he was in, but it's jes not worth my time.
