You needed that to make you "think"?

I don't need anymore proof that Bush and Blair are pieces of shit. There's no reason for anyone's family or friends to be in Iraq.

Why don't they send their own children?

It is about our troops. They are people too just like you and me. Don't get political on me in this thread.

At least Blair has shown half a bollock by half-admitting that Iraq has gone tits-up with his 'retirement speech' yesterday. I don't see any sign of Bush commin of that texan high horse he's so firmly planted his a** on.

I mean, it's true that this is shocking, but who started this war? It sure as hell wasn't Iraq... and what can we civies do at home but watch, we have no real power to change anything unless there was some major reform of revolution that allowed public opinion to change the outcome of politics.

The video's cute too, but it does fail to show how both armies from other countries are coping with this fiasco, and then there's the Iraqi people who are suffering, more so than the soldiers who are stationed out there...

EDIT I don't mean to be political about this post, but at the end of the day, it's politics that's causin all this sadness.

I know it's about our troops. What the hell do you mean "they are people just like us"? What, did you think i think they're just worthless nobodies? How offensive.

Our fucking family is dieing out there.

How could this thread not get political? The whole affair is political.

Just for once, try and view this with an open mind and not bring in your personal views into it. Not everyone thinks like you do. This is about those that are sacrificing their lives, time away from love ones, and not forgetting them in their efforts.

If that's what you want, then your gonna get alot of comments on this thread saying, 'yea it is sad' 'damn' and 'This sucks'...

And that'll be about how intelligent the conversation will be...

You are so naive.

What the hell are you talking about sacrificing their lives? The people in the war are not sacrificing their lives, they have NO CHOICE but to be there. It is BLAIR and BUSH that are SACRIFICING our soldiers' lives.

I have several friends in Iraq/ Afghanistan so don't preach to me about "thinking about them" because, believe me i'll do that by myself.

And that'll be about how intelligent the conversation will be...[/quote] Well..it has more meaning. Let's not take away from it. Sure...we can bring in the same old bullcrap about how EVIL President Bush is and how the U.S. Military are the NAZI's of the 21st century..but seriously...I'm sick of that crap. Military personal are people too. They have families, friends..etc. Sometimes they die. Let's not forget them.

Well...some of them get killed. [quote=do_NOt_ENTRY;3673195]The people in the war are not sacrificing their lives, they have NO CHOICE but to be there. It is BLAIR and BUSH that are SACRIFICING our soldiers' lives.
Naw...look bro...it is a volunteer military. Bush didn't hold a gun to their head and force them to sign up in the military. [quote=do_NOt_ENTRY;3673195]I have several friends in Iraq/ Afghanistan so don't preach to me about "thinking about them" because, believe me i'll do that by myself.

Why are you so mad at me? Is it because I posted this clip about thinking about our military service guys and gals? You seem like a really angry person for some reason. I just found this clip very meaningful and it tugged a heart string with me and I wanted to share it with others here in this forum.

Very nicely played on emotion, in that video.

Main point is though, the entire concept is flawed. They are not fighting for your freedom. They are fighting because that's what they're ordered to do. Doesn't make it less shitty for them and their families though. If anything, it makes it more shitty.
