Deadliest day in Iraq in two years for our troops as Killer-in-chief prepares to send more to die

20 more of our kids die in one day, as Bush's war machine revs up to kill more

At least 20 more of our young men and women died Saturday in military operations in the third deadliest day for U.S. servicemen in two years. 13 of those died in a helicopter crash, and 5 were slain in an attack by militia fighters in the holy city of Karbala. Since March of 2003, only 2 other days in the war produced more deaths in a single day. The war's deadliest day, January 26, 2005, produced 37 casualties when a Marine transport helicopter crashed during a sandstorm in
Iraq's western desert, killing 30 Marines and a sailor. On the same day, six other U.S. forces died in combat bringing the total to 37. The second highest day was on March 23, 2003 when 28 service members were killed as American forces were pushing toward Baghdad on the third day of the U.S.-led invasion.
Now, our war mongerer-in-chief actually has the nads to go before the American people on Tuesday and basically ask us all to support his decision to send more to die. This is total madness. The Neo-con, far-right, nut job nation will no doubt spin this (what they are best at) and say that we are HAPPY that more troops died today in big numbers so that we could politicize it and use it as an excuse to NOT support the troop escalation. Well, I have news for the far-right, boot licking, America-hating kooks......we were against DEATH before today! We want them HOME, so that they wont die! Do you LOONS understand that? This has NOTHING to do with politicizing anything! When I use the term "we", I am not referring to me and the Democrats, because they seem to in lock-step with Bush and his war machine set out to dominate the world and to imperialize America. I am referring to the ones who truly want our kids home so they won't DIE. What do you far-right bozos not understand?
Sadly, the far-right Bush-supporting loon will not see a day like today and think "gee, maybe we SHOULD get out so no more will die". No, they will look at the 46 American soldiers who have died this month and say, "see? THIS is why we need more troops!" Amazing isn't it? The right-wing, war mongering buffoon won't ever see these dead troops as being tragic. They will never see it through a parents eyes. They will never see it through a brothers eyes, a sisters eyes, an uncles eyes, an aunts eyes or a friends eyes. They only see it through the eyes of one.....their own non-sacrificial, detached, inhuman eyes. I, personally don't have relatives or friends there in Iraq right now. I have not suffered. I have not lost anyone. I have not had to bear the burden of sorrow. But, I feel it is the duty of every American to react to this quagmire, this lie, this travesty known as Iraq, as if they have suffered loss, and be in full support of this war coming to an end quickly.
Unfortunately, I already know not all Americans feel this way, and that is the real tragedy of this war. That we have a polarized country. Although 2/3 of America wants the troops home, we still have those who pledge their allegiance to one man, a man who has lied over and over, a man who has ignored everyone from generals and members of his own party to a former President that just weeks before his death said the Iraq war was a big mistake. A man who claims that he is defending freedom, yet has torched an 800 year old law known as Habeas Corpus, has called the Constitution a "goddamned piece of paper", has ignored the Geneva Conventions (punishable by death) by authorizing the torture of detainees. A man who claims he is tough on terrorism, but did nothing weeks before the biggest attack in our country's history by ignoring a Presidential Daily Briefing "vaguely" entitled "Bin Laden determined to strike inside U.S.", a man who claims he is tough on terrorism, yet sat on his ass for 7 minutes listening to kids read a book and hung around the school for an additional 30 minutes putting the entire staff and schoolchildren in danger by his mere presence there. A man who ignores the F.I.S.A. courts by saying he will spy on American citizens in the manner he wants to, WHEN he wants to, not giving a damn about laws or that thorn in his side known as the Constitution! A man who claims to be a Christian but is a member of both secret societies Skull & Bones and the Bohemian Grove and whose grandfather made the families' first fortune working for a bank that financed the Hitler regime. This is the man you should follow if you want troops to die, if you hate America, if you hate freedom, if you support global domination, if you support the New World Order, if you support a borderless North America and you want a dictator as your leader. Yes, people......this is the man.

WHEN oh WHEN will you READ anything I say? This is NOT about Democrats or Republicans----I even said in THIS very post "When I use the term "we", I am not referring to me and the Democrats, because they seem to in lock-step with Bush and his war machine set out to dominate the world and to imperialize America." I AM NOT A DEMOCRAT! Can you READ????

WHEN will you answer my question? Are you a Christian? YES or NO?? SIMPLE!

You may not be a Democrat but you are a certifiable nut

ahhhh, the name calling again, which you claim NOT to do, but yet you purposely IGNORE my question. I have proved now that it really isnt the difficulty of my questions, because you continually IGNORE the easiest question a person could be asked (Are you a Christian?)---you just LOVE ignoring people with different views---it's not the difficulty in the question---just the avoidance and deflection from ANYONE with an opposing view gives you a rush. But I will march on with my question: Are you a Christian? if so, which branch? Catholic? Protestant? Why would you ignore such an EASY question and ignore it so blatantly?

lol----thats EXACTLY what my story said the kook far-right would say--lol. And yet, WE are the ones want them home so they WONT die anymore! The kook neo-cons want to send MORE to die, and WE are happy? This is the same guy that said so arrogantly that I dont answer HIS questions, and look how he CONTINUALLY ignores the easiest question a person can be asked (Are you a Christian?) I know why he ignores the question. If he says no---in his pea-brain, that seperates him from his Lord and Savior George (Im a Christian because I say so) Bush-----if he says yes, then that would contradict the fact that he worships a president that continually lies and deceives the American people to get what he wants, including ignoring the Constitution and ignoring Congress, ignoring the Geneva Conventions and ignoring FISA---and ignoring...well.....EVERYONE so that he can accomplish his dictatorial plan to dominate the world and Imperialize America and using the troops as pawns and sacrificial lambs for his own agenda. This is why he doesnt answer. Either answer would incriminate him.

Yes Larry keep defending the rights of terrorists and keep spitting in the face of the people trying to keep your sorry ass safe

Real Truth Online said...

Bush is keeping us safe? Since WHEN? Oh, you mean when he sat on his ASS after Andy Card told him "we're under attack" or was it when he IGNORED the August 6, 2001 Presidential Daily Briefing on Bin Laden attacking America? Which one was it? I'm confused. By the way, tell me when the cops come by for your death threat.

No surprise you are confused. Have you been that way since birth?

Good job ignoring FACTS with stupid sarcastic comments just for the sole purpose of deflecting what someone says. You would NEVER be able to have a serious debate with me because id NEVER let you divert away from issues. Id keep asking a question 100 times if you kept deflecting---which is what you are doing with my REPEATED question: ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
