I have a problem with people writing the word SOLDIER wrongly... AAAH.. My uncle once did it, and he kept saying, A solder did this and a solder did that..
Now you're writing a soldure, it makes as much sense as a solder.. But they're both wrong.. SOLDIER is the right spelling.

And I have a Gmail invitation with 1000MB for you.. Do you want it? I'm talking seriously.

So wrong, Each member of the US armed service is a volunteer, so none of the 1000 fallen brothers are _a victim_ of any other persons decisions.
You guys got that market cornered
Now I will grant you , Bush is a sick puppy.

To MadTom:

You really know why an american enlists the Army? Of course, you know. You guys know everthing and allways you are right...

But... what about this?

"COMBAT JACK"
CBFTW enlisted in the Army because, as he says,“I needed a fucking job, and at the time nobody would hire me, so I said fuck it, I’m going Infantry.” Upon graduating Basic Training from Fort Benning, Georgia, his orders sent him to Fort Lewis Washington, where he was then a part of the Army’s first Mobile Elite Stryker Brigade. After a couple months of showing up to 06:00 PT formations completely hung over and sometimes still drunk from the night before, his ass was sent to Iraq in 2003 where he has been conducting combat operations and has been placed on countless demoralizing details ever since. So far he’s been Stop Lossed and had both his R&R to Qatar and his mid tour leave cancelled. The following post is from CBFTW’s Field Journal when he was in Kuwait. His blog, “MY WAR” is at http://cbftw.blogspot.com

Aquele abraco!

To Jeffrey:

Why you are so angry? Soldiers are paid to kill and, of course, to die. Nobody has the right to complain about this.

By the way, the real number of USA fatalities is far from 1.000. And the causalities is far from the admitted 7.000. Pentagon is lying to american.

But, of course, average americans only believes in that appears in their TV.

Aquele abraço!

More accurately, the following should read:

Jeffrey --

Yeah! Death to the Yanks! And the killing of the Russian kids was super enjoyable and a mega victory! Whooo, can't wait for the next 9-11 ! I want more blood!

As usual, your mindless vitriol cracks me up.

Despite all your professed intelligence, I still cannot understand why you do not see that there are two sides to the story. I cannot understand how you believe such a simplistic theory of Muslims killing themselves in suicide bombings because they "hate freedom". Perhaps the reason why Iraqis are killing US servicemen is the same reason that would cause Americans to kill Soviet troops in the US.

Perhaps it is because they LOVE freedom that they are fighting you in Iraq.

And, the fact that you automatically lump the Chechens into your worldwide plot by Muslims to kill all infidels (there! I said the word! Watch Jeff catch a hernia.) shows me that you do not really want to know the deeper issues for this conflict. The Chechens, for example, have been fighting the Russians for a long, long time. Ever ask yourself *why* they stoop to such vile tactics? Do you even *want* to know?

I don't think so ... your way is much easier.

Jeff, first, a man is a man by his credibility, didnt you promise not to coment here anymore?
secon, i agree, this war, the war against USA, is a war for freedom, for the love of freedom, for the sake of freedom, [here add a third sentenc that ends with freedom, i cant think of one now]

To Jeffrev:

Do I support the killing of the American troops? Of course not. My claim is for withdraw of the American troops. By withdrawing, they won't be killed anymore.

By claiming the continuity of occupation, you do support the killing of American troops. And you also support the killing of the Iraqi civilians.

You wrote in another thread that you know everthing about military. But, Mister "Sabe Tudo", you don't know just the basic:

"In a war, soldiers are paid to kill and to die."Therefore, you, and no American, have the right to inculpate Iraqi resistance by the killing of American troops.

Try to inculpate Bush and the strangelove's neocon guys for this. And, by the way, the number of fatalities is far bigger from 1000, but you don't complain about the lies they are telling you.

About the Beslan stuff, you just don't see that it's very convenient to Bush election and, of course, you just don't ask question about who is supporting these terrorists.

How old are you, boy? You seems to be a kid that doesn't grow up enought to have a rational think. If a Iraqi child becomes orphan, you cheers. If an American soldier becomes a free soul, you scold. Grow up to reality.

Aquele abraço!

My god Jeffrey, I have never felt so much hatred coming out from anyone. If you, the educated guy who lives in a democratic country thinks this way, then why should we blame the people who never knew the meaning of the word freedom?

Khalid,

Jeffrey brought up a good point that I have been meaning to ask you. Will you be able to vote in the upcoming elections? I just wondered. I don't know how it works there. I know you weren't born in Iraq so does that mean you can't vote? Do you have to "apply" for citizenship as an "official/legal" Iraqi first before you can register to vote? I'm just asking. I really don't know...I'm not being a smart ass...honestly. I know your mother can vote because she was born in Iraq.

#9/09/2004 06:41:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger Jeffrey

Alvaro, here's an answer to your question about who are the terrorists from one honest Arab Muslim:

>"Obviously not all Muslims are terrorists but, regrettably, the majority of the terrorists in the world are Muslims. The kidnappers of the students in Ossetia are Muslims. The kidnappers and killers of the Nepalese workers and cooks are also Muslims. Those who rape and murder in Darfour are Muslims, and their victims are Muslims as well. Those who blew up the residential complexes in Riyadh and Al-Khobar are Muslims. Those who kidnapped the two French journalists are Muslims. The two [women] who blew up the two planes [over Russia] a week ago are Muslims. Bin Laden is a Muslim and Al-Houthi [the head of a terrorist group in Yemen] is a Muslim. The majority of those who carried out suicide operations against buses, schools, houses, and buildings around the world in the last ten years are also Muslims. "What a terrible record. Does this not say something about us, about our society and our culture?

>If we put all of these pictures together in one day, we will see that these pictures are difficult, embarrassing, and humiliating for us. However, instead of avoiding them and justifying them it is incumbent upon us first of all to recognize their authenticity rather than to compose eloquent articles and speeches proclaiming our innocence...

>Islam has suffered an injustice at the hands of the new Muslims... We will only be able to clear our reputation once we have admitted the clear and shameful fact that most of the terrorist acts in the world today are carried out by Muslims. We have to realize that we cannot correct the condition of our youth who carry out these disgraceful operations until we have treated the minds of our sheikhs who have turned themselves into pulpit revolutionaries who send the children of others to fight while they send their own children to European schools."

>- Abd Al-Rahman Al-Rashed, former editor of the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.

Or let's listen to an Iraqi's comments:

Iraqi columnist Aziz Al-Hajj:

>The Islamic-Arab terrorism has turned into the greatest danger in the world, and threatens civilization, security, and life everywhere. It is today the symbol of evil, religious fanaticism, and moral degradation, and it is the essence of political crime in today's world…

>The Arabs and the Muslims today contribute nothing to civilization and progress except for blood, severed heads, scorched bodies, and the abduction and murder of children. The Jihad for religion and Arab chivalry have turned into the art of exploding, booby-trapping, and spilling blood. What an innovation and what a social contribution the Arabs have made in the 21st century!!

I don't know if I would go as far as this Iraqi, but I understand his frustration.

you can withdraw all the way till your under your bed, and this will not stop the terrorist from trying to kill you.
This conflict did not start with our invasion of Iraq and it wont end with our withdrawal.

Alvaro,
Do you really believe that CB was so destitute that he had no other option, not even flipping burgers, that he had to join?
Even if this fantasy were true, he still made the decision to join all by himself.
I think that CB's current situation, i.e. censored, is much more tragic than anything he ever experienced in LA.
And not only for CB but for this current administration.

Bruno:

You said, "Ever ask yourself *why* they (Chechen terrorist) stoop to such vile tactics? Do you even *want* to know?"

I am already familiar with the history of the Chechen cause. However, purposefully abusing hundreds of children by taking them hostages and killing them is beyond the pale, no matter what the alleged political justification. There can be no "why" that could morally justify such an action. IMHO, when a group stoops so low, they lose the requisite moral authority to persuade anyone of the legitmacy of their cause. For this reasons, such tactics are, in the end, self defeating.

Jeffrey --


"You have stated very clearly that you hope American soldiers die in Iraq."

The key words here are *in Iraq*.

What are US soldiers doing there?

Oh yes, killing Iraqis, that was it.

Go home.

Oh, and please stop swearing and freaking out like a five year old. I was going to finish this reply to you based on the rest of your posts this morning, but a moderator removed the flimsy arguments you made together with the swearing. (Coming from you, they *had* to be flimsy)

Relaaaax. Deep breaths, OK?

The rest of your posts are pretty much propagandising. I can say similar things about your heroes. Do you really want me to write a three chapter essay on how the US "has turned into the greatest danger in the world, and threatens civilization, security, and life everywhere" ?

I'll even get excerpts from bona fide Americans that are more vitriolic than I get. Will that convince you of anything? Look, I don't agree with terror used by Muslims or anybody else. BUT I also don't agree with the way America conducts its affairs, especially lately. I regard the bombing of Iraqis as American terrorism.

Simply because one weapon is dropped from the air with a laser on the tip does not mean it is any less of a terror device than a belt of C4 explosives around a man's waist.

--Bruno--



Mark --

That is why I said "... stoop to such vile tactics?"

I agree that the Chechens are screwing themselves over by doing things like this, even if the Russians have been guilty of an extremely brutal occupation. I think that the Chechens have lost hope and simply don't care anymore what people think. That is sad.

"There can be no "why" that could morally justify such an action. IMHO, when a group stoops so low, they lose the requisite moral authority to persuade anyone of the legitmacy of their cause."

I think I agree with that too. The "why" is an explanation, not an excuse. There is a difference.

I think that the Chechen situation might have parallels with Iraq in a few years time, if things continue as they are. I seriously hope that the US is gone before such a state of affairs is reached.

Bruno,

You stated, "What are US soldiers doing there? Oh yes, killing Iraqis, that was it."

Good grief! Now don't you think that is a little simplistic? I highly doubt at their morning briefings that the soldiers get a memo handed to them that says, "Today's mission: KILL IRAQIS!"....I mean come on Bruno! Iraqis are being killed yes but not just by US soldiers and to state that as their reason for being there is absurd.

Brunhilda,

Let's make this very, very simple. You want Americans to die. This American wants you to die.

If I could, I would put a bullet right between your eyes that would go in clean and blow the back of your head off.

I know an enemy when I see one. This is way past argument, Brunhilda. We both know that. It's survival. You get a cheap thrill when American soldiers die. The planes flying into the Twin Towers warms your heart. I would smile as blood bubbles from your mouth in your last seconds. Let's cut the bull, Brunhilda.

Brunhilda,

We all recognize the source of your bitterness toward anyone in power. You're a Whitey in South Africa. Your people no longer run that country and now the Black Africans whom you bullied for centuries are in power. I can smell the acrid stench of your sweat all the way here in New York.

My family knows all this very well. My brother-in-law Chris is a Igbo from Nigeria and my other brother-in-law is an African American. Any intermarriage in your family Brunhilda? Anyone in your family married to a Black African?

Nothing is more pathetic than the vile contortions of once-powerful elete minority.

Connie,

If someone wants to kill me, I take it personally. I live in New York and it's personal for me. Very personal. Brunhilda is an apologist for terrorists. That's very personal for me.

According to Brunhilda and Alvaro, the people from teh movie "Field of Dreams" -- filmed in my hometown -- are the evil scum of the world. That is personal.

No, after 9/11, I now recognize an enemy when I see one. If you can't see that they are encouraged by American deaths, then you are hopelessly naive. Sorry, Connie, but that's how I see it.

Won't be fooled again.

I found this today and remenbered the fallen.

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Connie --

Let me ask you a simple question. When the US first invaded Iraq, the ranks of the ‘Baathist dead enders’ were put at a number not exceeding five thousand.

Last month, a single month in the long battle, the US claimed to have killed 2500 ‘insurgents’. Given such a huge killing rate, (they should have been wiped out months ago) where are all these new ‘dead enders’ coming from?

My answer to you on this is: Iraqis on the ground have realized the nature of the American occupation, and are taking up arms against it. Your ‘terrorists’ are mostly ordinary Iraqis that want to be left out of your global power politics, want to determine their own future, and do not trust you.

Orders to kill “non compliant forces” are orders to kill Iraqi patriots.

That is the truth.

And as for the assertion on my bravery, or lack of it ...

That assertion is just pure speculation on your part, because, in fact, you know *nothing* about me. I might be an ex- recce with a penchant for automatic weaponry and about three screws left in my head. In that case, I would welcome a clash with your infantry.

But, speaking of missing cranial matter, we come to my favourite punching bag ...

Jeffrey --

Whoooaa! Strong words, coming from grandfather time there!

Yeah, well, you'd want many things, but alas, they will not come to pass, now will they?

I personally think you'd look good in orange ...

Well, enough chit chat, onto your moronic arguments.

I see we come to the old "racist!" accusation, ever a winner in serious intellectual debate. Well, what can I say? I am blown away by the logical and coherent nature of your accusation.

Not.

See, if I were a white South African, would I not rather be cheering for the United States? Aren’t United Sates Republicans mainly Christian, Protestant oriented people? Surely the great enemy of Communism would be a friend? Didn't the US support white South Africa as a bastion against Communist expansion? (Mbeki, on the other hand, supported Aristede, and has consistently stood in the way of various Western endeavours to expand influence in Africa.) And, surely an eeevil racist white would be cheering every brown Iraqi blown to bits, as I see *your* far right wingnut cheerleading team doing?

Your weak psychological analysis is, quite frankly, pathetic.

Furthermore, assuming white South Africans are all identical (yeah right), if I were white, it would add *more* authority to my case, because it would indicate that a serious amount of thought and analysis had gone into shifting a political opinion from one side of the spectrum to the other.

(Why is it that no matter how much I try to stick to reasoned debate, some mongoloid throwback drags the old ad hominem and paternity carcasses into the story? )

So what if you have blacks married into your family? Does this in any way imply anything about one’s own personal views? May I remind you of a certain fellow named Schickelgruber, and that his lineage did not necessarily influence his opinions on matters of race in a positive fashion at all ? Your argument is fallacious.

But you want to ad hominem? Lets go:

Your claims to African blood in the family do not impress me in the least. Judging Nigerians by their actions in our country, they are the scum of Africa. These slime balls specialize in Prostitution and their only talent is the creation of Drug rings. These parasites are also famous for their 419 internet confidence scams. If I were you I would not trumpet it as a positive having one of them in the family. A warm hearted Malawian or Madagascan, yes, or a hard working Botswanan certainly.

But I suppose in *your* case even a Nigerian would be an enhancement, so I ought not complain. Perhaps a few more generations of marriage into the ranks of murderers and thieves will elevate your bloodline to something that can appear in public without causing undue embarrassment.

Perhaps.

So, how does that feel, Jeffrey?

Hey it felt good to me, even if it had nothing to do with Iraq, the merits of your argument, or your own personal beliefs.

We can do this again, if you like, my little infidel friend.

--Bruno--
