Truth on War

Recommended Posts

After taking a long break from 12oz, I have come back to see that the board is filled with the usual bullshit...I'd like to know in what fantasy world you anti-war protesters are living. Let's take a walk down Reality Lane for a minute. The reality is inspections don't work and have never worked. If they did, why is it Iraq has been firing some of those Scud missiles at our troops that they repeatedly said they didn't have? Wait a sec. Our government might be lying to us about that story. How about this: wasn't it Iraq that said they would be arming their troops with some of those non-existent chemical munitions? Yep. Inspections work?

 

Forgive me, I'm missing the point. It's all about President Bush buying votes with oil, right? Funny how George Bush, Sr. was accused of that yet we still left Iraq and its oil fields. Funny how we haven't been getting gas for a dollar a gallon at the pump from Kuwaiti oil during the past twelve years. I guess we didn't steal their oil either. Here's a thought: maybe the Kuwaiti mission actually had something to do with the fact that Kuwait was invaded and the country's people were being slaughtered by Saddam Hussein. Nah, Bush, Sr. wouldn't have had humanitarian motives in mind, would he?

 

If you want to talk about buying votes with oil, we don't have to look back too far. Bill Clinton tapped the strategic oil reserves shortly before Al Gore's face-off with Bush. He said it was to Northeasterners with their heating bills. It had no effect on prices, but people were duped anyway. Or how about when Clinton began firing missiles into Iraq during the Monica Lewinsky scandal in 1998. Coincidence? Ask former Clinton advisors George Stephanopoulos and Dick Morris; both have come forward and stated that the goal of the bombings was to get the scandal off the front pages. If you think I'm lying, go check --Stephanopoulos' tell-all book would be a good starting point. And when you see that this is true, just think about all the Iraqis Clinton may have killed for such a self-serving purpose. After all, isn't that what you anti-war protesters are accusing Bush of doing? If that's not using oil as a ploy, what is?

 

And now it's time to talk about the French. Many war protesters believe the French are opposed to this war because of humanitarian concerns, and therefore, agree with the French. The truth is that the French Government could care less about war casualties. France just doesn't want us to discover what Iraqi scientists who have defected have claimed for years, which is that France has sold Iraq nuclear materials.

 

And for those of you who claim, as the Iraqi Government has when the issue periodically arose, that it was so they could build nuclear power plants for their people, wake up! Why would a country with a seemingly endless supply of oil need one of those dangerous nuclear plants?

 

You anti-war protesters accuse Bush of having petty motives for this war, yet you are so blind to the petty motives of the French. Here's what I want out of you anti-war protesters: Once the war ends, and we leave Iraq again without stealing their oil, and when we discover even more chemical munitions beyond what has already been discovered, and when we verify the Iraqi-French connection, which we already know exists, I want you all to hold rallies apologizing to Bush, acknowledging that he was right and you were wrong.

 

Of course, since you'll never do this, you can just wait for the big "I told you so" as demonstrated by Bush's re-election in 2004. God bless our troops.

if they are such do-gooders (you say they went up in the gulf to help out Kuwait last time), then why don't they lift a finger for other countries in trouble, like in Africa?

 

 

whatever, though - bomb iraq.

I am not a protester out in the streets and I am not a pacifist who believes any war is wrong. That said I have serious problems with not just the war but the Bush administration.

 

Yes Saddam is a terrible person and yes he needs to be dealt with. My main problem with this war is the lack of diplomacy we used to bring it about. Daily more and more countries are against us. If it was just France no one would care.

 

Do you know that Switzerland actually came out and said they don't think the war is a good idea and they felt the US was out of line? The Swiss who don't usually take sides on anything.

 

Today Russia said that the world was facing the worst global crisis since the cold war.

 

The US just told Iran that if their proxies interfere they would be considered combatants. Also we are threatening Syria for their actions of supplying arms to Iraq.

 

North Korea continues to fester. India and Pakistan are having serious issues.

 

On and on and on.....

why is it that people who question our government are considered anti american? Thats one of the key rights that set us apart from other nations. you guys want a nation of sheep that does whatever the president (a guy who wasn't even elected) says?

 

pathetic.

 

saddam has weapons that are nowhere near the magnitude that the US has, why shouldn't the US be forced to disarm?

 

mr president, you're stupid and need to learn to open your mouth only when you've considered both sides of an issue.

yes, saddam doesnt have the fire power we have but that in no way means he cant kill tons of people.

 

and how the fuck are you gonna put the US and saddam in the same boat? are you soooo fucking blind to see what a horrible person this guy is?

Originally posted by mr_president

why shouldn't the US be forced to disarm? that's a good question, and here's a good answer: because we need shit so that we can keep others in line. notice how we don't threaten our own people and go fuck up other countries because we are bored one day?

 

that was easy.

 

(and if you want to reply, do some research first on what the US has done "because we were bored one day"...and also look into the concept of yankee imperialism)

earth to captain fucking make believe, WE HAVE NOT FOUND ANY 'CHEMICAL MUNITIONS'.

please stop making things up.

 

no one gives a shit if the french sold iraq nuclear anything, we GAVE iraq CHEMICAL and BIOLOGICAL weapons.

further more, france is one of about 180 countries that oppose this war. did they ALL sell iraq nuclear weapons and are now trying to cover it up?

 

honestly dude, did you just get some fucking pamphlet from some just-as-uninforned zealot, spitting this 'freedom fries' bullshit out for you? reading this stuff made me embaressed FOR you. if i ever suspected myself of such blindness, id take my own life and apologise to anyone i forced to listen to my bullshit.

the only thing this war will accomplish is the near universal distrust of america.

 

 

i cant believe i even bothered to reply to this hunk of shit.

in true american fas(cism)hion i should just close it...

A majority of these protestors seem to protest more because of Anti-Americanism/Bush/Globalization rather than peace.

since when is trying to insure that america is still fucking in existence ten years from now, 'un-american'??

 

apparently you all fail to understand the magnitude of the situation at hand. this is not about saddam, this is about actions wich lead the entire world to distrust us, and turn a whole continent into one giant 'anti-american' training camp.

thats just an argument againt the protestors themselves, not the subject they are protesting. besides, if they're anti-american, so what? what does that have to do with the fact that US shouldn't be attacking iraq?

holy fuck this thread is bizarre.

uncle boy- do you know anything about propaganda?

anything about the mechanics of propaganda? i doubt it bro. go to your

library and read at least a few books on propaganda/PR,

then try and play the slickster. stick to dance parties.

 

you guys are so in line with washington's language it's amazing.

patriotism is self glorification, a whole mind set of 'we're better

than everyone, yay, look at us'..it also suspends self analysis.

i honestly can't believe some of you are so empty headed you believe

things that do not exist. thats fucking something. since when did

politicians become bearers of truth and your best interest?

 

umm, pistol? people protest the bush admin becuz it is waging a false

war. what nation is currently dropping bombs on people? what nation

is in its second war in 2 years? what nation somehow comes to the conclusion

that dropping bombs will make your country and the world safe? what nation has strategic plans to bomb

numerous other countries? what nation pulled out of the abm treaty?

what nation just pissed all over the world and its best friends in favour

of provided concrete evidence? what nation has been jamming up your

ass daily non facts as a case to drop bombs on people? are you fucking

retarded?

see bug that's that point.

most of those protestors aren't really saying "Don't attack Iraq!" for the sake of not attacking Iraq. They're doing it for other reasons such as what I mentioned in my last post.

 

If thats the case why are they coming up with shit like Bush is doing it for oil or to avenge his father. I mean personally I think good is gonna come out of this for the Iraqi people. The only people not liking it is the people that hold rank in Saddam's crew. I mean right now do you think the Iraqi public could start a protest in Baghdad or Basra right now like folks in NY SF & LA are doing right now? NO. They woulda been gassed by now. Instead they're just being shot by IRAQI troops.

good for the Iraqi people? like getting bombs dropped on them for the last 10 years? like US sanctions blocking basic medicine that could prevent diseases that we in the US take for granted, so iraqi people have been suffering for no reason other than the US being assholes?

so why do you have problems with americans protesting?

even then, there will not be democracy set up in iraq if saddam was forced out. if you think so, you've been seriously delusioned by our media

ummm, maybe you should pay a little closer attention.

iraqi citizens do not trust us. they're still kind of bitter about that whole 'embargo' we placed on them, which would not allow food and medical aid and support into their country (of course all the while allowing the export -and import into america- of iraqi oil) thus killing hundreds of thousands of 'civillians'. the un has aknowledged this for years. oh, but again, who cares what the UN aknowledges.

 

also, theres this whole thing called pride. its pretty important to people. for some people, its the only thing they have. literally. no food. no family. no shelter. no future. nothing but pride. and we stomp all over that with our back-handed handouts and bullshit politricks.

 

 

god, i need to stop. this is making me crabby.

what news are you reading? the expectations of iraqi's running in the streets with joy that the american liberators have finally saved them isn't happenin' bro..yet...

 

 

I mean right now do you think the Iraqi public could start a protest in Baghdad or Basra right now like folks in NY SF & LA are doing right now? NO. They woulda been gassed by now.

 

yea, maybe, but who are you, mr. come save the day guy?

destroying the village to save it should be your new signature.

 

 

Instead they're just being shot by IRAQI troops.

 

well there you go, that fits your views nicely huh? if the news said it,

then it must be true. i take it you know nothing of the reality of war time coverage...

eat it up fat ass.
