Yeah Swordfish, If you're not enlisted you don't get to say sh*t about what is done on your behalf.  Otherwise, you "don't support the troops".....Gettafuckoutta here with that sh*t.

That's right BP, you'll need to gettafuckoutta here with that *&^%.

Mustbme, your not in the military now.  What's wrong couldn't hack it.  If you ever were in the military, I doubt you were deployed you probably had a female dog job.  You talk tough though.

The problem with the liberals is that you keep trying to fight the same windmill over and over again.  At this point it doesn't matter why we went to Iraq, what matters is getting the damn job done.  We have to be successful, we have no choice.  Does nobody on the liberal side understand this?  All I ever hear is quagmire this and quagmire that, but no solutions are ever given to the problem.  If you think something is wrong, great, come up with a solution because otherwise you just sound like a whiny female dog.



Here's a solution, GET THE #@!* OUT!!!

Unfortunately, this is not an acceptable solution because it creates a power vacuum.  Such a situation could potentially result in an even greater problem than we initially sought to solve.  History has taught us many times what sorts of evil may arise in the power vacuum of a nation recently engaged in revolution.

I don't care about vacuums. I care about human lives.

Do you really think that the two are separate entities?  What does history teach us about revolution and the ensuing struggle for power?  If you create a power vacuum, then many, many human lives are certain to be lost.

Than you have nothing to worry about Swordfish.  It isn't like you'll ever wear the Uniform.  I do admit, though, it's a lot easier to dump all over those of us who do, but I digress...

Your pretty tough yourself.  My dad's messed up for the rest of his life because of the war, and my friend got killed in March over there.  I'm from WV most of us serve.  I think I have a right to be upset over the war you female private part.

I am a real republican.  I'll tell you what, I will get the hard numbers from the recruiting command for you.    

Your more than welcome to grab a rifle and head over seas.

I think you would be surprised.  You don't need to draft republicans.  We already make up over 70% of the armed forces.  You see, we do back up what we preach.  I had my B.S. in business before I signed up.  What were you doing while I was deployed?  Bitching and moaning with the rest of your liberal friends?  Grab a rifle or shut the F*$K up.  You might also be surprised to learn that the army is the only branch whose recruits, on average, come from lower middle income families.  The rest of the branches are made up almost entirely of middle to upper middle class americans.

how many rich people sign up for this 'volunteer army'?  I assume you're reasonable enough to recognize that mostly poor people compose the ranks of the military.

I like your reasoning, either kill or be quiet.  Republicans are so smart.

it'd make them a whole lot less cavalier about sending poor people off to die, thats for sure.

I'll assume cause you generally seem reasonable that you don't mean to imply everyone in the military is poor, but that's certainly the implication here....

3 words: all volunteer army.

let julie take wild guess:  you for war, but intere43sted in fighting it.  right?

Speaking as a veteran, Julie, I find that comment highly offensive.  

I've never taken drugs, so I guess I have no right to speak about the danger of using/abusing drugs.

I've never had lung cancer, so I guess I have no right to speak about the dangers of smoking.

I've never had STD, but I guess I have no right to speak about somewhat safe sex (ie condoms) and safest sex (monogamous relationships).

After reading some of your posts, I think a two year stint in any of our armed forces, but particularly the Marines, would you do you a WORLD of good.  You might understand what it means to support your country, to be more inclined to trust your government i/s/o just about every other international organization that insults and disparages it.

Also, the military is overwhelming conservative.  I remember reading the Stars and Stripes last November which reported that about 80%.... THAT'S 80%.... of our armed forces who voted voted for Bush over Kerry.

So, in reponse to this assinine topic about Republicans being the first to volunteer to join the armed forces:  WE'RE ALREADY THERE!!!  

In the spirit of equality, I suggest we encourage more Democrats to join, so that instead of 80/20 split of conservatives to liberals, it'll be closer to 50/50.

Tell you kids what:  if any of you 'progressive' pi$$ on the US types were to enlist, I'll reenlist.  Swear to God.  

You see, I know how good it feels to be a part of something greater than myself.  To know that what I do truly matters.  To know that if I would have to sacrifice myself for my country, I'd be able to look God in the eye, knowing that there is no greater love than to lay down my life in defense of true liberty and freedom.

Reading your posts almost makes me wonder why I bothered.  Almost.

Then why didn't you stay in the armed forces?

speed walkers with their wiggly hips and double jointed knees, that freaks me out.  Just run for cryin' out loud.
