RE: AWOL

You're absolutely right Homer, er, "Max". A chance to "act like" we're defending our rights. Problem is, it's just that, an act. People act like Saddam's the only dictator in the world that doesn't run a democracy. Why is he being singled out exactly? Dictators & such torture & are cruel to the people they rule over all around the world, so why only go after Saddam?

RE: AWOL

Hey Nik. How about because he is the one that poses an immediate threat to American citizens? Is that not a good enough reason? Don't you just love these people that keep spouting off all this nonsense about all these other countries and ruling powers that are as 'evil' as Iraq? "Why are we only going after Saddam?", they ask. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that his regime poses a legitimate threat to Americans at home and abroad. And they still bitch and moan about removing him from power. Can you imagine the firestorm created if we started going to war with every, single country that is 'evil'? The only other country that should be of genuine interest right now is North Korea. That issue is still in the diplomatic stages, though, and is of no immediate threat to our country right now. I'm sure that if they ever are, they will be dealt with. Nik, you are a moron.

RE: RE: AWOL

AWOL is the correct answer....not right or wrong. Everyone makes choices in life. If I'd made the "correct" descion in '67 those would be four familiar letters. I still cry for my friends. Don't buy into this b.s. Dubya is lying to the country. In the entire mideast Iraq is the least of our problems....that's why we supported Saddam in the past. It's the religious zealots that surrond him that will get us in the end. Saddam has seven palaces and he's ****ing his countrymen....how more "American" can you get?

RE: AWOL

oh Chuck, you poor poor gullible boy you. What "immediate threat" does Saddam pose to America? let me guess, you're a big fan of "Minority Report" aren't you. The whole idea of stopping a crime out of fear it might happen. And you said yourself, North Korea should also be gone after, yet what is going on with them? Nothing. So tell me oh wise moron, what threat has Saddam posed to america? What missiles of his can reach America? And before you spout off about terrorism, he isn't the only country with terrorist capabilities. Yet he's bush's #1 target, interesting. I mean really, to think Saddam poses such a major threat to America when he hasn't done a thing in 12 years is a little paranoid I think. And when did this whole "Axis of Evil" turn into one country? Were three too many for Bush to focus on?

RE: AWOL

Its only oil... Now if all that money had been spent on finding fossil fuel alternatives rather than making guns, there'd be no reason for this struggle for the worlds remaining oil fields...
Or so I heard on the TV.

RE: AWOL

Yeah, i think there is something fundimentally wrong with replying "AWOL." You dont have to agree that the cause is legitimate or just, but to not support an effort that is already in motion is f**ked up. So many people these days enjoy driving on federally funded highways, they enjoy low gas prices, high saftey standards in airplane and automobile production, reletively safe neighborhoods, clean air, public education, etc. The government provides all these things for us. I think the least that we owe the goverment would be to not ungratefully run away if it ever called upon us to fight. As screwed up as everyone likes to say our government is, it does some pretty spectacular things for us that we take for granted. Open your eyes people. We have it good, so stop bitching and show some respect towards your government. Its done a lot more for you than you realize.

RE: AWOL

In Response to Read and Learn. If you scored over 1500 on your SAT's then you now that war with Iraq is the only way to go. ****ing anti-war protestors with their untested **** for a response.

RE: RE: AWOL

You obviously didn't fare very well on your SAT examination.

"In Response to Read and Learn."

Now that is not a complete sentence. Also, I'm not sure why you capitalized "Response". What you wrote is just a sentence fragment. In the future try the following:

"In response to Read and Learn:”

Additionally, you seem to have some difficulty with silent consonants.

“If you scored over 1500 on your SAT’s then you now that the war…”

I believe the word you were searching for is know. The k is silent, like in knee, knife, and knowledge. Judging from your response you didn’t quite make it though the test. Fortunately, you can still try reading the whole thing again. You might learn something.

RE: RE: AWOL

Judging from your response you didn’t quite make it though the test. Yeah, let's talk about ****ing up on your SAT's. Let me guess, you scored about 400 on your english portion because that sentence doesn't make sense. I seem to make a few mistakes when I am typing 80 words per minute. Sorry. So **** me in the ass. You think that I have some problems with silent consonants, well the K Y and O are silent in **** YOU...and oh yeah I capitalized **** YOU.

RE: AWOL

Just to inconvinience everyone.

The war on Iraq is just a way for America to function.
Since America is a country made up of loads of states, it would be very hard for anyone to have any kind of control over all of them.

There are several ways to solve that, they are as the following; propagandising, religion and war.

Now, propagandising produces a backlash from all the other countries, and the ruler is seen as a dictator, so that method is currently not in use.

Religion is getting harder in this day and age, it would work because of the naturally hopeful state of humanity, but the internet and television have made it very hard for any kind of religion to lord over everybody.

War is the best way. Countries that are made up of a lot of small seperate states or whatever, are not very connected to any sort of leader. But a war always brings out the patriotism in most people. People who do not go to war and go AWOL, are made to seem like cowards and the govornment makes them feel guilty for their country and work harder as a result. There is nothing like a tremendous war to unite people.

I know I am being completly biased. But I don't care.
Neither do you, don't deny it.

Sorry for all the gramatical/spelling mistakes but I am writing in a hurry.

Awaiting all hate posts against me.
