HOLD YOUR HORSES
Why are people, the Left, in such a hurry for Iraq to stand on their own two feet? I keep hearing that we need to hurry and get their army setup as a cohesive unit without U.S. military helping. One question. How long did it take for the U.S. army to get it together? I'm not really sure, but I think it was longer than three years. We keep hearing that the Iraqi government needs to hurry and get their constitution set. Did you know it took four years to get ours ratified, but Iraq should be able to do it in only a few months. Sounds reasonable. We keep hearing that we need to pull the troops out. Our troops remained in Germany until 1955 after they surrendered. 10 years. We've been in Iraq for, what, two years since Bush declared an end to major combat. But let's say three years starting when we first went in. It took Germany ten years to get back on their feet, but Iraq should be able to in only three. Again, sounds reasonable. One last thing. In the waning days of WWII, the Nazis, knowing they were being beaten, got more violent with their attacks on Allied troops. Kind of like the terrorists bombers in Iraq are doing now. They know they can't beat our military, so they're now fighting a P.R. war. Kill as many innocent Iraqis as possible and maybe the soft-brained Left in America will demand the troops be pulled out. Looks like it's working too.

Ten years of the net
Ten years of the net Just a decade ago this week, the $3bn flotation of Netscape signalled the start of the mass internet age.

In what will probably be my LAST post (and reading of this blog, well except for your reply)*, I have to ask:

Why do you have an image of a desecrated flag on the right side of the page?

*It's not personal, I'm just bored with the idea of blogs in general. Your's and the Liberal Avenger's are the only two I've been reading for quite some time (Za's, I read occassionaly, but he doesn't update too frequently). And frankly, it's the same thing over and over and over and over and over, etc. I may pop in from time to time, but don't count on it. It's been fun.

Of course, I'd say lost post and it wouldn't be.

Remove my link (Breaking News) from the BLOGGERHOOD - US Listing, Please. It's pure shite anyway.

Thanks.

I hope you change your mind. I hate to lose you as a reader.

Difference between the US army and the Iraqi army, is that:
1) The Iraqi army doesn't protect most of a continent.
2) The Iraqi army doesn't make up half the world's military spending.

And no - the insurgents in Iraq have been waging a PR war since the beginning, which is why so many people (whom you tend to avoid listening to, I've noticed) have said that Iraq is a recruitment highway for their cause.

Christopher Lee said...

So when the new world, before it was America, started to build it's first army it made up half the world's military spending? I never knew that. I thought it was a bunch of rag-tag farmers who loved their country. Silly me.

And I listen, they're just not saying anything coherent. They would rather scream and name call.

You're being facetious on the first point, and ignorant on the second.

The US military, as it stands today (which is what you were referring to before), takes up half of the world's military spending. My point was, that it takes a fecking long time to work your way up that far, so comparing the Iraqi military to the US military is stupid.

And no, they're QUITE coherent, you just choose to not listen. For instance (in reference to the misgivings about the west):
This feeling has been further accentuated by the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Britain's support for America's war against terror, which opinion polls suggest Muslims widely perceive to be a war against Islam.
- Dr Imran Waheed

Incoherent name calling? No, that's just you.

Muslims need to confront the fanatical fringe that preach violence and hate in the name of Islam.

They need to do more than just prevent extremists from preying on impressionable Muslim youth; they also need to understand the pressures faced by young Muslims living in the West.
...
The community needs to address these and find ways in which their grievances can be expressed peacefully.

- Shaista Gohir

What's this? Stating that Muslims have some beef with the west that they should sort out peacefully? DAMN THEIR INCOHERENT NAME CALLING! DAMN IT I SAY!

Now do you understand me Chris?
You avoid these things because they are coming from the left side of the spectrum and you just can't handle them. It's utterly pathetic.

Christopher Lee said...

1. I never mentioned todays military. How long did it take for the U.S. army to get it together?
That's refering to our first army.

2. You named a few who don't name call. I could tick off name after name of those on the left who call Bush a retard, stupid, idiot, scream at the top of their lungs turning red-faced that he betrayed his country. Or just stick with Moore and his lie filled F911 to show my point.

1) You're referring to the army overall. Stop playing games.

2) I named the few that I was referring to - the ones who say that Iraq is a recruitment highway for Al-Qaeda. The ones you completely avoid listening to. Heck, if I followed your example with who I listen to on the other side, I'd be listening to the people who's voting strategy was "well... Kerry looks kinda French... and he changes his mind...". It's only the pathetic idiots who bother to only listen to OTHER pathetic idiots.
