That's what is known in industry parlance as "a total load of crap."

Nah, I don't think there's any kind of propaganda effort going on...

That depends...do you consider mechanical lifeforms to be real live people? If the answer is yes. Then sure, Cheney is as real as you or me. If not, he is as real as C3PO on crack.

As far as the war, we KNEW it was going to happen, we KNEW it would be sooner than later, and we KNEW someone would make ANOTHER post about it.

In conclusion,

Don't mess with Texas.

Oh, I have a big problem with the giant snake, but this is not the thread for that discussion.

And Phreaky, why the tone of surprise? Surely it makes sense for someone with such blatantly homosexual tendancies as myself to be a Buffy fan. Although Angel is a far superior show.

Who said anything about homosexual tendencies? Not I. I just didn't coin you as a Buffy fan. My mistake. Retract your nails now like a good kitty.

I would like to quote the great Stormtroopers of Death right now...

"Fuck the Middle east
There's too many problems
They just get in the way
We sure could live with them
The hijack our planes
They raise our oil prices
We'll kill them all and have a ball
And end their fuckin' crisis
BERUT, LEBANON-Won't exist once we're done
LIBYA, IRAN-We'll flush the bastards down the can
SYRIANS and SHIITES-Crush their faces with our might
Then Israel and Egypt can live in peace without these dicks"

That's the thing. Young healthy people who love war should not be standing on anything but sand right now. Go have fun! Play until you taste blood and don't know if it's yours or from one of the exploding babies that just walked into camp.

I've recently come across a problem. My boyfriend is very gung-ho about the war, and I have mixed feelings. In some ways, I'm against the war. However, I'm not going to run out into the street and play dead over it. In other ways, we're there now, we're fighting now, so I have to have support for our troops. After all, they are my cousins, my uncles, my brother's best friend. In fact, one of my own friends is over there, providing ministry to the troops.

You say that if I feel this way, Spankling, that I should suit up and enlist. I don't think I could possibly kill someone, though. I honestly don't want to see anyone killed. But they call it war for a reason; Care Bears was taken. Therefore, I would be worthless to anyone, but as a human shield. Would you like for me to do that, then?

I can't say that I'm gung-ho about blowing up Iraq, but I can't say that I'm completely against it, either. However, I'm very uncomfortable with how drastically everyone, my own boyfriend included, is taking sides on the war. Either extreme, "Give peace a chance" or "Bomb, bomb, and more bomb", doesn't benefit anyone.

Riding through your town with his head on fire

Member Rated:

My college roommate is in the Army. He's working as an aide to a general or something, and last weekend that general got the news that he was going to Iraq, so my roommate is too.

Aside from being in the military I think he's a pretty good guy. We have a good time whenever he visits and on the whole I'd rather not see him die. Last time he was up to visit, before war had actually been declared, another of my former roommates asked him how he felt about the prospect. He said, "I follow the orders of my commanding officer." They said, sure, but what do you really think? He said, "Are you kidding? I don't want to go to war."

Part of the reason I'm against the war is because I don't want my friend to die in it. And really, neither does he. (Whether it's his own damn fault for enlisting is something we can debate later. We've discussed the issue and he does support the US' actions, but that's also beside the point for now.)

I've got this quote from Noam Chomsky on my web page about how "support our troops" is basically a meaningless phrase. Do I support our troops? I don't want them to die. But I don't want the Iraqi troops to die either. Do I support our government's policy? Certainly not.

That's why War is Bad. We can argue all day about who's overstepping their boundaries or who's violating international law, but those are only secondary problems with the war. The most important thing is that War Is Bad Because People Die. Maybe people you care about. Certainly people that someone else cares about.

I can see, theoretically speaking, that maybe some good could come of this whole business. And I could see, in extreme circumstances, where even I might decide that there was an evil so great that I would be willing to risk my life to fight it. But here and now? No. This doesn't come close. I wouldn't fight for this cause. And I can't ask anyone else to do anything I wouldn't be willing to do myself. There's a concept too many leaders on both sides can't grasp.

So, chicka, my points are: first of all, of course you want to support the people you know who are involved in the conflict, but that's not the same as saying you support the reasons for the conflict, or the reality of the conflict. You can make those decisions separately. Second, I'd say your boyfriend should enlist, if he hasn't already. Like Spankling said: any able-bodied individual who is in favor of the war should be actively helping to fight it. Otherwise you're asking other people to put their lives on the line for your cause, but refusing to do it yourself. As for whether you yourself should enlist, I'd say no. It sounds like you're not willing to fight for this cause. I'd also say that makes you anti-war.

If you'd never be willing to fight for any cause, I'd say that makes you a pacifist. Consider joing the War Resisters League.

I think that is a reasonable way to go.

I'm probably one of the few here that grew up during the Vietnam war. (I was within 4 years of draft age when it ended. And I had several uncles who were in-country at the time) And I think it is reasonable to both against a war you are waging and to support the troops that are fighting it. For the most part, the soldiers there did not ask to be put in that conflict. They fight to protect America from a threat to national security. (Whether, the perceived threat actually exists is another manner for discussion.) There is no reason why not to thank the troops for performing a dirty and dangerous job.

That said, there is no reason why war protest shouldn't continue. It shows the world the American people are not backing the policies of the President as a bloc. Further, these protests influences members of the legislative branch, even if the imperial (excuse me, the executive) branch does not.

However, I content the energies of the protestors would be better served by not taking up placards and blocking traffic, but by grassroots efforts to get out the vote and bringing out a regime change in America.

Did anyone see that Bruce Willis, sick of his fellow actors' anti-war rhetoric, "tried" to enlist, only to be told he was too old and decrepit? You'd think he'd've known that in advance.
