Make a new
We are now, as then, engaged with a foe who wants us to merely do what we were told to do.
That takes the prize. We have a winner.
Sad. Very sad. Oh, indeed it is.
Surely you are smarter than that. Then again maybe you are not.
These words coming from someone who can't even spell the words heroes or advice? What a gem you are. You do have a point of sorts though, as far as the revolutionary war comparing to Iraq; in both wars you have the people fighting for the independence of their nation. Oddly enough, both against empires under the rule of men named George.
Are you going to threaten to shoot me again?
Worship when they say worship. Worship who they say worship. Worship how they say worship.
We know now the Soviet "threat" was hyped during the cold war,
"I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil intersts in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested."
"War is a racket. ...It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives."
"The general public shoulders the bill. This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations."
so Iraq was planning to invade the US and convert us all to Islam? wow now it all makes sense.
The ability to spell has nothing to with intelligence
In a response regarding your spelling you can't even put in all your words. I don't think more need be said, but I will anyway. This is just a friendly notice to you ppj, every word I write is loaded with subliminal messages telling you, ppj, to convert to Islam and campaign for Jesse Jackson Jr. in '08.
It isn't that he doesn't want to take his meds, those darned liberal orderlies keep stealing them from him and using them for their own recreation.
Don't worry, that'll never happen because someone else will have already fought and won that battle. Some, of course, will have died doing it, but don't let that bother you.
In the meantime, what is it about the fact that Iraq is merely one battle in a long war that you don't understand?
This is just a friendly notice to you ppj, every word I write is loaded with subliminal messages telling you, ppj, to convert to Islam and campaign for Jesse Jackson Jr. in '08.
You DO know that this is a war that NEVER needed to be fought in the first place and that Bin Laden is no where near Iraq
CLARKE: (Bush) In the first week in February (01), decided on principle, in the spring to add to the existing Clinton strategy, and to increase CIA resources, for example for covert action, five-fold, to go after al Qaeda. And then changed the strategy from one of rollback with al Qaeda over the course of five years, which it had been, to a new strategy that called for the rapid elimination of al Qaeda."
and of course my all time favorite:
Our enemies...never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we. ~George W. Bush
After every ''victory'' you have more enemies. ~Jeanette Winterson
After every ''victory'' you have more dead enemies. ~ PPJakaJim
Remember Ernesto, communication is not just words on paper.
So, based on this we should have lost WWII. What a dumb concept.
I'll be quite amused...if in the future he'll be able to understand what folks here write, instead of what he thinks they wrote. Right, cheetah?
Right, Dark Avenger, how right you are!
PPJ's inability to understand what people are actually saying can be summed up in his response to Ernesto's GWB quote with this pearl of wisdom:
You know, the vast majority of Americans understood exactly what this fractured syntax meant. They understood exactly what Bush was saying.
There are some who, uh--feel like--that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is bring 'em on.
Why do you even bother quoting faux news?
I suspect that you also understood.
The problem for PPJ is that, yes, we did understand..
I am always amazed at the ignorance that surrounds this topic. The argument that we must use environmentally destructive agents, such as DDT, is nothing more than "Bush-science" propaganda. Try reading something other than the "news-ribbon" on Fox (we report-we decide) News.
In a recent study, the World Health Organisation estimated that malathion, the cheapest alternative to DDT, costs more than twice as much as DDT and must be sprayed twice as often. Deltamethrin, an alternative recommended by environmental groups, is more than three times as expensive as DDT. Propoxur, which is often highly effective, costs 23 times as much as DDT.
Would you prefer a President who just ignores the problems until they kill a few thousand Americans?
Or republican asshats like you
Using chemicals that destroy the delicate ecosystem are the cheap, short term remedy, and can never be cost effective in the long term, due to the serious problems they themselves cause.
PPJ, do your own research, pal. It's amazingly educational, and we can see that you could benefit from that!
Dark Avenger, thanks for the great link.
And as Dark Avenger said,
She's upset with the "bring it on" quote, but since you can't admit Bush ever made a mistake, you can't talk about that, can you?
Oh, but don't forget that the bastion of wisdom, Human Events Online, has dealt Silent Spring the death blow. It merited honorable mention in their little contest of most harmful books. Of the 19th and 20th centuries, no less!
I happen to be related to a very nice young man, who happens to be gay. I would characterize him as "cheerful", and he shows a propensity for "lighthearted excitement", as you call it.
Insure is commonly given as a synonym for ensure. Unless, of course, you're talking about the nutrition drink.
Didn't someone tell you to stay on your anti-psych meds yesterday? You really should have listened to them because you seem to have developed a split personality.
this is too funny for words.
I wonder what the relatives and friends of the dead would say if they knew that we had waited for an overt attack that was large enough to justify war to people like you, cheetah, Fat albert, Fenria, DA, etc.
And BTW. Given that the terrorist attacks increased in size and frequency, at what point would you decide to fight?
And what strategy would you use to combat loosely organized terrorist organizations with members from many countries?
BTW - Nice try at linking. I thought you, along with Fat albert and DA, were the world's greatest at such things. Oh well, walking the walk and talking the talk and that sort of stuff.
