Iraq War - General Patrais - Al-Qaeda

Iraq War - Al-Qaeda - Teran - Iran - Oh My!





These people talk tough, so I believe it’s time they act tough, too, by getting their own brothers, sisters, children, plus their OWN asses out to Iraq, and start fighting a war with Al-Qaeda, that was a farce from the very beginning!
MoveOn.org

By and by, seems like the inevitable is fast approaching, thanks to the billions upon billions spent on the Iraqi War. I predict a depression far worse than that of that of the Great Depression! So, we better start growing weeds in our backyards, because that's what we'll be eating, if Bush doesn't come to his senses and end this war in Iraq!

General Patrais is getting bit of a lashing by the House Hearing right now! I watched AMB. Crocker give his speech today, and noticed he READ his speech, and this quote came to mind:

"A printed speech is like a dried flower:
the substance indeed is there,
but the color is faded and the perfume gone."

I seriously cannot believe you are even reading that socialist crap from MoveOn.ORG They are the brains behind the anti-american push of the Democratic Party.

Did you listen to the great democrat chair of the committee calling Petrais a liar and a stooge before he ever said a word? How many times has that fat assed POS ever gotten out of his congressional chambers and gone to IRAQ to talk to the troops onme to one? How many Iraqui children has he seen going to schools that the Army Corps of Engineers and the Seabees built? How many Mothers who are proud of their Sons and Daughters who are over there has he talked top One on one?

The only one today that I was proud of was the General for his strength of character for not calling all those useless pieces of democrat crap, sorry excuses for Americans.

Sorry sweetness but I went through all this crap in Vietnam, I was an American Fighting Man, and I will always support the Troops and the job they are sent to do wether I agree with it or not.

As for Crocker yes he read his speech, because I am sure he was choking to hold back his contempt for some of those on the committee.

our first little love spat!
Aye, my dearest of the Dear! When it comes to this topic, you and I will be having our first little love spat! Smooch! :o)

There’s no way Crocker kept holding back the urge to show his contempt for all those in the committee; he was too busy trying to stop shaking in his boots to do that. I saw him looking like a meek little mouse as those who spoke to him and Petrais expressed their feelings about what they thought about their accomplishments, and ho tragic this war has been for so many people.

I have no idea how many sons and daughters of proud mothers in Iraq there are, and believe me, I wish them all safety, but it really doesn’t concern me, when I count all the American Soldiers, and innocent civilian lives in Iraq that have been lost to accomplish just about only that.

I know what you and my dad went through, and it breaks my heart that all those who survived that war weren’t received as soldiers who served their country, as they should have. You will always be my American hero, that’s for sure, but I could care less, as all the families of all our soldiers fighting in Iraq, if they come back as heroes or not, I just want them all back alive and well.

I, as the majority support our troops, (how could I not if I have a brother over there) but we DO NOT support this war in Iraq.

What all these people who are so apt of the continuation of the war in Iraq must do is to put their own lives and those of their own children, where their mouths are.

As for all their scare tactics on the American people, I for one, stopped buying it a long time ago. We need all that money, and all that energy spent on Iraq, spent here in this country, which is going down hill at an alarmingly frightening way.

well the people invested in Halliburton and Blackwater will be eating great on our money

at no point did I personally have a problem with the U.S. genuinely going after Al Queda, but all this "war on terror" has been is a method to funnel taxpayer $ into the pockets of the administration friends, and an attempt to gain unlimited power for Chancellor Bush to become Fürer.

I believe the majority of us were all for going after Al-Qaeda in a big way because of 911, but something QUICKLY happened along the way where money became more important than human life, or capturing Osama bin Laden.

I still FAINTLY recall how we as American's were united, and busting with patriotism back then. Now, all I see is a government breaking into a million pieces; not Iraq's, but our own, and it's frightening.

A greater depression than the great one? Hmm... Not until 2017 imo. But then again, we might have the Amero by then. Hell, certain folks in power just might cut the FRN supply to cause economical turmoil just to convince the public that the Amero is needed. Then bye-bye US, and hello North American Union.

But anyhow....
I'm glad you see that the media is nothing but a propaganda machine. And, you know what's even more interesing in that video you posted? Watch that video again and look at how the UN is imposing its authority on Iran. That means the higher perceived governing authority in the world is the UN.

Did you ever give consent to be governed by the UN? Did Iran ever give consent to be governed by the UN?

I know I didn't. I'm sure they didn't. Yet, we're all practically held at gun point by some form of military force. Here in the states it's by domestic soldiers (i.e. cops).

The only difference between the American people and the Iranians is that we asked for it. They didn't.

Yet, because American business created today's world economy by influencing nearly all of the industries in the world, we think we have the right to dictate the trade of another country's resources. So in essence, we're looking to tax them for trading in the world market due to the industries we've created or influenced.

Basically, this whole middle eastern conflict is in large part due to them wanting more control over trade then we're willing to allow. And they think they have a right to that because they have control over the mineral rights that the world's production is dependent upon. In essence, it's extortion. And those in control of American intersts aren't gong to allow it.

So whether America wages this war campaign or not, we, the American people, will still have to deal with our economical position, especially if we want to sustain our living standards -- not just the gadgets and toys we see in the malls, but the food as well.

And yes, Iran does pose as a military threat because another country has claim on the resources we require to literally fuel our markets with items we need, and they're not willing to trade those resources without charging us an arm and a leg for it. If they get a nuke, then that fortifies their postion. So, if we're going to force them to trade according to "just and fair" terms, then the time to do that is now.

So, it's not so black and white. There are benefits for supporting and fighting this war. And yes, certain people will line their pockets by captializing off this war. You can capatalize off it as well. But regardless of that, like I mentioned above, whether we fight this war or not, we will still have to deal with our dependency on world trade, production of goods and services, and dependency on oil.

This war is to prevent certain middle eastern powers from subverting our dominance in the world economy. It also promotes the progression of a one world government. So it's not necessarily bad for the media to promote this war. But the way they do it is manipulative. But it is the responsbility of the People to educate themselves, to do their due diligence, if they want to be considered a self-governing people. Otherwise, they become the governed as opposed to the one's who govern themselves.

I tell you if supported the war and waved the flag about and was beating the drums of war i see so often from mostly the extreme rightwing i'd go join up(even at my age) but i see none of these Pro warheads going or any of their families serving,this does more of a dishonor to our brave troops than all their claims of people wanting peace do.
They should put their money where their very loud mouths are.
OK i'll stop preaching now but can i get an "AMEN"? ;)

mercenaries in Iraq
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070917/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq

personally, I think that even more than the perpetual military occupation (I believe the plan has always been to keep a permanent military occupation),
the mercenaries with no restraints are one of the biggest recruitments for armed resistance in Iraq. I know if someone was behaving that way in my neighborhood, I'd be trying to take them out in self/community defense.
