    That’s OK, fella; they don’t mind anymore (also said as, “Don’t mean Nothin’!”) It’s the living, the parents, widow(/er)s, and the kids who’ll grow up without a dad or a mom, who should be outraged.

    Just what freedoms were defended when we invaded Iraq?

    cw:

    I think RE’s last line indicates that he’s being satirical.

    Sorry, no sympathy from me. In this “post-Vietnam era” we know what Caesar does with his soldiers. These boys (and girls) were either naive enough or plain ol’ dumb enough to fall for a line of obvious BS.

    Sure, their loved ones miss them, but why did their loved ones let them sign up? No sympathy there, either.

    Yes, I DO support the troops. I pray every day that they all come home safe and soon, and teach their children not to make the same stupid mistake they did, and to believe NOTHING the government tells them.

    God bless America, God d**n her current government.

    I started reading the catch phrase and after “I mixed up” I immediately thought to myself: “I mixed up the gay ones with the not-gay ones.”

    Just slather all the corpses in oil and we’ll call it even.

    ultramaroon, Thanks, I did miss the last line. But I do hear that sort of thing quite often from the right and they are not being satirical.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a few Taliban and Qaeda bodies mixed in there, too.

    Even if I were serious…there is no hope of reasoning with someone so impassioned over knee-jerk beliefs, one who equates dissent with treason. Such a being is scarcely even a person. What freedoms is exactly the question. We never get a real answer because soldiers haven’t defended freedoms of Americans perhaps since 1815.

    it’s being readied for a “big box” store…

    Soldiers did defend the freedom of American kids to go to school in Little Rock.

    ^^^ But the troops were withdrawn and the kids were left with very little protection. Eisenhower was more interested in defending the power of the Federal government against the states than he was in defending Brown v. Board of Education, which he didn’t like.

    Our concerns in the Persian Gulf are the same as Gulf of Mexico and Tonkin Gulf- access to or control of – oil. It goes back to at least the Mobil Oil deal with Saudi Arabia in 1923, and even WW II was about access to oil. Japan wanted oil from our holdings in the Philippines. Germany needed oil from the middle east.

    Those mis-placed graves represent the mis-placed concern for “freedoms” that were only wars to secure oil. period.
