The Pentagon "failed" to register 20,000 brain injuries in the Iraq War.


So what's the excuse for your obviously significant brain damage?

Those who just follow orders without questioning the humanity of the action, ARE cowards hiding behind "we'er just following orders," everyone of them.  BTW, who gave the orders at Mylai, or Abu Grahib?


Even the Nazis could have taken lessons from these murderous baby killing cretins.

BTW The Nazis said the same thing i.e. they were only following orders. But the powers to be still hanged them!

1.  Have YOU enllisted, and if not, why not?

2.  Ask the same question of each and every politician.

3.  Ask the same question again of each of the children of every politician.  

Over 95% ...
Why do you continuously attempt to redirect, rather than respond to my questions and answers? You are beginning to sound as if you are running for U.S. political office .

I was enlisted in the early 90s, luckily the only conflict I saw was the last part of the L.A. riots. I would not enlist now to enter an illegal war. When it was only Afghanistan, after 9-11, I actually considered re-enlisting.... but I didn't like the idea of following Bush's orders. Luckily my dislike and hesitation kept me from making a huge mistake.

Politicians are often cowards. They are fully willing to risk the lives of other parent's children, while protecting their own. There are some exceptions whose children are serving right now (very few), but it is often the biggest warmongerers that have: a) never served or b) served in limited capacity (national guard or reserves pre-1990).

Unfortunetly, it is often the poor who fight the wars.

Put away the propaganda for a moment and trully look at the implecation of your words. If what you say is true, why would a great nations like China sit idly back and do business with the U.S.. Why would the peace loving nations of the world not bring charges forward in the world court?

Some of the moves in the past few years have concerned me, as I am an avid student of history. Many of the political moves are reminiscent of pre WWII Germany, but the majority of American soldiers do not have the blind devotion necessary to commit those levels of attrocities. Of the cases that have occured, soldiers often came forward and reported the incidents.... but leaders covered them up. The fault lies with the officers in charge and the men who committed the attrocities. There is no need to try to ascribe their actions to the entirety of the U.S. military.

Whose Fault is That??

Americans are the biggest crybabies.  They claim that under their system they can get rid of the immoral and the evil from their leadership.  Yet when the opportunity presents itself, when DC & the Neocons have proven to be the worst imperialists (this according to the UK archbishop) in human history, our American friends sit on their fat butts and continue to watch porn on cable and swig beer, and yet bellyache when the world refuses to continue to love them Yanks.  

It is all your own damn fault for not doing nuthin, my American friends.  The world blames YOU for the atrocities.

Every generation thinks theirs is the worst when it comes to hardships, natural disasters, and tragedies. People today have said Katrina was the worst natural disaster to strike the U.S..... they are wrong, regular flooding of the Mississippi took more lives and property before it was controlled. It doesn't mean we should think less of the disaster, but it does mean we shouldn't think this is the end of the world.

Though I am against the U.S. presence in Iraq; the UK archbishop seems to have forgotten the methods used to deal with the Kurds by the last Iraqi occupier (early 1900s).

The reports I've read of what Rowan Williams said do not quote him saying anything of the sort.

What he did allege was that the Americans were worse than the British colonial powers.

Now I am not fan of US foreign policy, but since the Brits were rather benign compared to many other European and Asian colonial powers, calling the septics worse than the Brits could be considered a compliment, compared to some of the alternatives !
