Iraq: We should close our hearts to pity

--- Quote from: Werekoala ---Um, no. We missed our chance at World Hegemony after WWII and I'm eager for us to catch up. We won't, of course, because despite what you think we're FAR too concerned with What People Think of Us to ever get it done. That'll be the NEXT Globe-Spanning empire. Not us, alas.

On a lighter note, you just gave me an idea for a killer slogan for the US Air Force: "We Level the Playing Field" :D

How old are you, really?

Yo fuckwit, I say the same thing in other places, and I have opely said that we have to start blaming voters for electing fuckwits like W for what they do in office. I don't just say it here, dick.

No, seriously, how old are you ? I could introduce you to  some really mature teenagers...you may learn something from them.

Edit: Sorry Dom, that was not very productive. I still think you are wrong, but if I wanted to add something meaningful to the discussion at hand, I should...and not take swipes at folks from a distance.

Regards,
David R

OK, let's drop it then. Hell, it's that season, the one for goodwill, peace on earth, etc.

I mostly don't agree with the logic that lies behind this forum's discussion. I believe in the current period, USA's army is a professional army, rather a patriotic army. Thus, in the case there had been a draft in the USA -and the war had been lasting so long and doing the way it does, in an analogous manner-, I believe it could have sense for me discussing most of your points in this forum.
 Let's say WWII as an example reference does not have much to do with it. Perhaps, France's war with Algery could have more to do with it.
 Today, I believe the professional army is also a tool to the govermental elite and what is behind it (big capital and business). The extention of how much misuse of this tool can be done is formulated by political means (see terrorism and media).This is the iraqi war IMO.
 For one, to understand the choices behind this war, I believe, he has to have knowledge of businesses of the highest levels- which I doupt anyone of us has at the moment.
