You know, I find it really messed up and non patrotic of you that you are using the names of people who died protecting your freedom for a political statement. One of my friend's name is on there, and it pisses me off to no end. You have absolutely no right using names of soldiers that have passed serving the Iraqi war. My husband is over there right now, and honestly, you don't know shit about the war. You have never spoken to an Iraqi and have them thank you for what your husband is doing. If you WE are killing the Iraqis, you are dead fucking wrong. Iraqi's are killing Iraqi's there, and we are working on changing that. Before you make a stupid liberal statement, know your shit.

Dear both anonymous commenters,

I'm sorry that you find my postings offensive, however, the facts that have been laid out over and over again, as to the basis for this war, as well as the amount and cause of the deaths from it, are available to any one. There is no sense in my repeating them yet again, here.

If you or a loved one is fighting in Iraq, that is certainly your choice to be there and to support what they are doing.

But what they are risking their lives for, and what tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed for, was based on the monetary greed of oil companies.

It doesn't, and never did, have anything to do with freedom. Not mine, yours, or the Iraqis. It has everything to do with the obtainment of Iraqi oil for multinational companies, for their profit.

There are other ways to assist impoverished countires under the rule of dictators, besides killing people on both sides.

It's called conflict resolution by diplomatic means.
Peace to you both,
medbh

I hope you drown in your own ignorance, bitch. And I can in fact say that. I was given the right by many soldier, as they have given their lives for the very thing that you are belittled.

"It doesn't, and never did, have anything to do with freedom. Not mine, yours, or the Iraqis. It has everything to do with the obtainment of Iraqi oil for multinational companies, for their profit."

You watch too much liberal tv. So, what's next? you going to make a blog about how we shouldn't cut down trees? Go fuck a tree and get over yourself.

how old are you??

Not old enough to go to war and/or have suffered the death of a loved one.

I hope that peace rests in your heart one day soon. And that furthur reading allows you to open your mind to the fact that thousands of people have died for nothing more than the profit of a few.
