  1. train The Wildcard!!!...

    While 12 others, 4 American and 8 British, soldiers died yesterday in a helicopter accident, the above is the first casualty of combat.

    Thank you to all of them, for fighting for our country, and yours(Britain), and the world.

    Our condolences go out to their families.

    The Hilliard Family.

    God bless them.

    And God bless the family of the Iraqi woman killed in the first strike, the military families here at home, and the injured in Iraq.

    Yay! they didn't hit that bunker with all of the nasty chemical and biological weapons!!! World saved, for now...

    ...

    I cannot possibly laugh louder...

    "God bless...bluh...bluh...bluh..." ...and the usual bluh of the weak spirited...

    What did you expect?

    Seriously, I have not laughed this loud since about 2 months ago...

    But 14 is such a low number, no?

    I want to laugh more...

    Hey, the war is on. :) Why cry when you could point and laugh, especially with all that "technology"! :cool: :D

    That was rude. It's a sign of respect, a thank you.

    this is a tribute! think about that 1/3 of surrounding countries populations being wiped out before they know whats happening.

    Or the "mysterious" outbreak all the way to Egypt! think about what could happen if they accidentaly hit something that is as deadly as the CDC in Atlanta. or Moscow's library of virii for that matter

    Zhaneel: You forget. DUke has no morals, remember? So to him, rudeness would be a pointless concept. To him, rudeness (or rather the avoidance of it), breeds dishonesty.

    And that soldier, regardless of what the rest of the country says, did not give his life for 'American' freedom. The only soldiers that 'gave their lives for American freedom', were the ones who fought the war of 1812 and the Revolutionary War, and MAYBE the Civil War. Hell, I'll even grant WWI and WWII...but every other war besides those that have involved U.S. forces, were usually wars of aggression; from the Native American Indians hundreds of years ago, to peoples of Latin America, to the nation of Yugoslavia, and to the nation of Iraq today.

    That soldier out there did not give his for American freedom or liberty. He gave his life trying to take over a country; he gave his life not to American values...but to an American Global Imperium.

    Multani - That's exactly why i left it at fighting for our country... But no matter the reason for the war... Iraq and the rest of the world will be a much better place...

    And all Iraqi civillians yet encountered have been glad to see our troops... thay also want Saddam gone and their country under a new regime... even if it's not a democracy...

    But I do thank them for fighting for our country, and their own. As France now has troops deployed in Kuwait and ready to assess whether or not there have been any WMD fired everyone understands that Hussein must go... but not everyone agrees it should be done with force... France even said they'd get involved if there were WMD found/fired.

    I'm just glad Iraq is dumb enough to use weapons they aren't supposed to have... make sit easier for other countries to realize they've been jerked around...

    But to all soldiers dying while fighting for our country - Thank You!.

    To those Iraqis resisting... I may grant them effort points... but I wish they were more intelligent... can't even wish that for Hussein.:rolleyes:

    Since we'll never know the consequences of not fighting the Korean or Vietnam War, I don't think you can say for certainty that those weren't "fights for freedom". I'm sure a lot of people during WWII were saying the same thing: "why the heck are we fighting in Europe when Hitler hasn't attacked us".
  10. train The Wildcard!!!...

    That's exactly why the U.S. ignored the war overseas until they were attacked...

    And had we stepped in sooner - There may not have been a Pearl Harbor... that's probably the most significant lesson about being preventive than reactive...;)
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    That's why I didn't mention Japan, just Germany, since they hadn't really attacked us (aside from a few sub sinkings which I'm sure they profusely apologized for :) )
  12. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I'd just like to mention that the deadliest division in the military is based here in Texas... at the largest military installation the U.S. possesses...

    And they're headed to Baghdad!!!...

    :cool:

    'Bout time the war got serious...:eek: :D

    And a thank you to all of them... and their families...:)
  13. Svenmonkey Pants Chancellor

    Which one's that, the 85th Redneck Warmonger Division or the 76th Fordtruckborne Division? :p

    [Oh, snap.]
  14. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Actually it's the...


    187th - We're so glad they gave us guns and tanks that they don't even have to bother asking us to use them, and we'll galdly do it while not under the influence, because we're from Texas, and that's what we do here, when not cow-tippin' or playin' cowboy at a rodeo - division!!!...:eek: :eek: ;)
