They sign up to defend this great nation. not be drawn into endless wars that have no possible valid reason.Yup they sign up -so it is ok for them to be killed and blown up for stupid reasons-compassion is never been your strong point But hey logic, reasoning , common sense has never been your strong point eithe

YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR OUR TROOPS ..... YOU do not have the reasons why they signed up... There are many who fought who disagree with you and are proud of their service.. Stop being a idiot!

And Bashar Assad, Iranian regime, N. Korean Kim, Kaddafi.

How many of our soldiers are you willing to sacrifice to get rid of them. Then how many more soldiers are you willing to be killed/maimed to get rid of the ruthless Taliban/al-queda types that come to take their place. Are you willing to go there-send you children and friends there?? or do you work for Halliburton salivating at the big bonuses you will get if we are at war with multiple countries???

Silly question.
How many 60 million people are you willing to watch die?

When the attacked us, Bush let the perprators go and instead attacked a country not related to the 9/11 attacks.

A separate issue... no one stated they were connected except a few uninformed here on Patnet.

The liberals have been pushing the issue of Iraq WMD long before Bush came to office. You can go back as far as mid 90s and Gores and Dems comments. Or are you a hypocrite and cant recall recent history.

One can push and say anything you want-that is politics. But the one who acted and sent troops there was Bush-not the liberals. Unlike you if OBozo the clown sent troops in the ground to Iraq now -I would be railing against him. But hey talking to you is like talking to a tape recorder.

We would have invaded had Gore been President anyway. He has been pushing for getting rid of Saddam since the 90s..

Again you are short on memory.... The Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 is a United States Congressional statement of policy calling for regime change in Iraq.[1][2] It was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, and states that it is the policy of the United States to support democratic movements within Iraq. The Act was cited in October 2002 to argue for the authorization of military force against the Iraqi government.

pick any video you want.. there are lots of Gore comments calling taking out Saddam one way or another for over 10 years. Long long before Bush ever considered being president.

You truly are Lost and Confused... Syria, Iraq, and Libya, soviet client, all terrorist sponsored states backing "world liberation" movements have been seeking to create their own "Muslim Bomb"... they been at it since the 60s. So dont be so naive as to think we in the west wouldnt have stepped in eventually.

no that is not new to me. but what is new to me is your idea of safety. Replacing these countries' leadership with al-queda types. because that is who is replacing the states where we have interfered. But to you having al-queda in charge of a possibly nuclear armed state is safe? LOL.

The rationale for signing up is irrelevant. Once a soldier signs on, they have a duty to support the current government whether they agree with it or not. No one should assume anything about any soldier's attitude.

Yes they should . That is a soldier's role-to fight and risk life and limb. Not stop in the middle of the battlefield and ask philosophical questions. But I think since they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, we as a nation should be careful of putting them in that position-that we should be careful and considerate when we ask them to make that sacrifice and not treat them like disposable fixtures.

On that issue , I think Obozo is actually much better and does not put soldiers in harms way for stupid reasons.

'Soldiers have a duty to protect the populace from enemies of the state.' I said that (and probably ripped it off from someone of more historical importance), and I think it is generally accepted? 'The populace has a duty to protect the soldiers from the state.' My thought as well, and also might be plagiarized.

Very true.. and often overlooked... at least a women would walk down Tehran sq in a mini-skirt during the Shah years.. but today.. she would get killed over it.

And Saudi women can walk down Riyadh in a mini-skirt?

thomaswong.1986 says

so no we didnt create these people.. they were already fighting the Pro Soviet puppet govt in Kabul long long before we provided assistance.

We didn't create them but we gave them weapons and know-how. Then they turned it on us. Blowback is a bitch.

BTW, we started helping the Pashtu Fundamentalists before the Soviets sent assistance to the Afghan government.

If the Soviets invaded Afghanistan to save a Communist regime, then we invaded Vietnam to save an Oligarchy. President Thieu won 94% of the vote in 1971, must have been really popular, almost as popular as Saddam when he was re-elected.

thomaswong.1986 says

Harsh ? ... The shah had to deal with Marxist Terrorists attacking it cities during the 60s and 70s. They were backed by the Soviets like so many

When Mossadegh was in power, Communists were a small minority. The Shah's oppression made them a viable force - just like the Shah's oppression empowered the Islamic Revolution.

So what... what are you complaining about...deal with it when

you buy your next gallon of Opec Oil...

do you keep paying for this ? or become self sufficient in oil ?

I don't know what you're saying here, no clue. You don't consume OPEC oil?

thomaswong.1986 says

Go to war over oil.. you sure dont hear lots of Liberals calling for that ....

I'm saying if we go to war for oil using Human Rights as BS cover, why don't we take over Saudi Arabia for the same reason? Because they own our politicians, that's why.

thomaswong.1986 says

Ghaddafi however NEVER gave up backing terrorist groups like Hamas or what was left of the PLO.

The Saudis, Jordanians, Gulf States, Egypt, etc. - all our allies - funded the PLO.

Ghaddafi gave up when the Wahhabi fanatics started screwing with him about a decade ago. We then shook his hand, forgave him, he paid indemnities to his victims and gave up his nuclear program..

Then, we killed him anyway. Now, our Wahhabi Rebel friends are fighting our puppet government, after killing our Staff. Benghazi!

thomaswong.1986 says

why are you being a apologist for these Terror Backed States ?

I hate Saudi Arabia, mother of all Wahhabi terrorism.

Big oil companies, the kind that had lots of juice in the Bush (oilman) Cheney(oilman) white house don't extract it for free. Or anywhere near free.

The oil goes on the world market. The goal was keeping the supply going with a US friendly government in charge and non nationalized oil companies producing. The goal was never outright ownership of the oil. Even the most mouth breathing neocon fool (redundancy) knows the US can't get away with stealing Iraq's oil.

Here's Bandar "Bush" bin Sultan, named so for his close relationship with the Bush family:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan

Bandar bin Sultan was told about the invasion of Iraq before Colin Powell, the Secretary of State, was, according to Bob Woodward and other accounts.

Saudi Arabia's pernicious influence is one of the reasons the US response to the anti-democracy crackdown in Bahrain, where Saudi hastily supplied tanks shut down democracy protesters, elicited only the lightest of Oh sad, how bad remarks (and no action of course) from noted Human Rights Defender, Hillary Clinton, then Sec. of State.

Those Chemical Weapons used in Syria that the US originally tried to blame Assad for?
http://www.mintpressnews.com/witnesses-of-gas-attack-say-saudis-supplied-rebels-with-chemical-weapons/168135/

Bandar bin Sultan was Chief of Saudi Intelligence when this happened.

What really surprises me is a lot of atheists and liberals who never fail to
attack Christians, but will never say anything against Islam

It's a matter of (myopic) perspective. Living in a Christian, Fox News dominated country, there are plenty of occasions for christians to cause trouble for non-christians, often for sharia-law-like reasons such as abortion and LGBT matters.
There are also many instances where a consensus of "christians" or plain foxbots will pass along some manner of horseshit about muslims, and as a group they will all agree; any challenger is likely to be a liberal or other outgroup by their standards, and is rabidly turned on and attacked by the group, precluding any learning or understanding and preserving their consensus reality that all muslims are (whatever.)
What you DON'T see are the occasions when a liberal may be talking to muslim folks, and challenging misconceptions THEY may have about western and often specifically christian ideas. The Fox-loving Merkins are predisposed to think that all muslims are the same; it is interesting to talk to "westernized" muslims. The jingoists and foxbots fail to recognize that the underlying problems with muslims who fail to integrate with cultures such as in Britain, are actually problems of opportunity and economy, not Islam per se.

Agree with Automan Empire that Strategist is making a pretty bogus straw man. People who dislike radical Christianity are also likely to dislike radical Islam. Radical Christianity is definitely very Sharia-like. It's hilarious to me that fundamentalist Christians worry that Sharia might be imposed here in the US when the only people trying to impose Sharia-like elements are fundamentalist Christians.

We don't have radical Christianity in the West. We don't burn witches any more, or stone someone to death or kill gays. If it happens it's considered a crime and swiftly dealt with by the rule of law. Now look at the Mid East. There is no comparison. Even Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris have pointed this out. I understand Sam Harris has body guards as he is targeted by radical Islam. He is not targeted by radical Christianity.

I would also add....if anyone wants to make the world a better place within the religion context, we need to spend our time and resources attacking Islam, not Christianity. Simply because we get a bigger bang for the buck by controlling the worst, the most dangerous and the only one that wants to annihilate us.

Anyone trying to implement law based on scripture is radical. We have plenty of people who would like to do that in the West. Just like most Christians aren't radical Christians, most Muslims aren't radical Muslims.
