Posted:I was in another forum and I saw this message..



 Written by:

BAGHDAD, Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda in Iraq leader who led a brutal insurgency that included homicide bombings, kidnappings and beheadings, was killed in an airstrike on a building north of Baghdad, U.S. and Iraqi officials announced Thursday.



The man whose been responsible for killing American Soldiers and the deaths of untold thousands of Iraqi civilians just ate 1000lbs of bombs, which was oh so graciously delivered to him by one of our F-16's.



Keep up the good fight guys. The world is a safer place today.





The US army is one of the most imoral uncareing and reckless armys around currently, they arnt all like that but it seems somewhere along the way the content control seems to have been skipped by the men in charge.



So I put in this post

Now if we could just stop jar heads killing civilians, or shooting british troops. There was this time these geniouse americans were orderd to wait for british troops to relieve them and told to shoot anyone who comes near them until the british arrive. The english arrive in english vehicles, at the correct time, on the planned route, broadcasting over the radio announcing there approach. So what do the american troops do? Start shooting the British, huzah!







Then this guy posts this...

On the interest of keeping things civil, I'll ask you to remove that, or have a DM do so, and we'll forget it was ever there.



This was made to honor those who are over there making the sacrifice that to few are willing to make. American, British, Australian, Japanese, and the rest of those in the coalition.



Not to attack them





To which I posted after much thought

Wouldnt that be un-constitutional?







God bless america, land of the free, land of the american dream, land of the smug! Until someone says something they dont like and they want to erase it, I guess there's a little Richard Nixon in all of them.



I hope this turns into a worthwhile post I think ive gone and missed 'The woman Who Thinks Like a Cow' because of it...dag-namit!

Posted:VT, the problem is how does one take a tyrant out of power without restructuring the entire country? I guarantee that Mr. Hussein wasn't carefully planning for the greater good of the Iraqi nation so that there could be a smooth transition to another form of government on the off chance that he might get deposed.

See, I'm the last person to say that Saddam was a good leader. However, every single liberal in this country was screaming to stay the hell out because 1) there was no good reason to invade and 2) there is no good way to place a democracy in power when political views are as widely disparate as they are in Iraq. The only time we have been able to get it to work is when we've carved up a country along ethnic lines. That way the differences in opinion aren't so great that people are willing to fight over them. This happened in the former Yugoslavia when we carved it up into Bosnia-Herzogovina, Croatia, and Serbia. When you try to force traditional enemies to live together in peace, it never happens.

And Bush is unwilling to take the one step that would work. Split Iraq into Kurdistan, Shiastan, and Sunnistan (in all practicality, the Sunnis would be best off being sent to Kuwait).

THEN you can have not one democracy, but three. And in time, they can learn to live next to each-other, to solve their own internal problems, and eventually to get along.

Posted:as i understand it the Kurds WANT to be seperate anyway. in a story i saw last year it seemed they pretty much self governed anyway and the only reason they were still part of iraq was the land they want to claim has a substantial oil field on it.

No, one of his henchmen would be and he'd probably be just as bad.

There isn't a good solution to this. This was two things: a personal vendetta by Bush and also a way for Halliburton and other US oil companies to grab a bunch of oil.

Posted:Hi Doc, thanks for the information. I think you are forgetting a few things. It was the UN not the USA that carved up the former Yugoslavia. Saddam was a good leader for HIS people, though he dident give a rats about other peoples. He is an old man that probably wouldnt have lived that long anyhow iof he stayed in power.
