We could have, but we chose Hope and Change instead.


When I saw we, I don't include me.


But hey, look on the bright side, the oceans have receded and everyone who wants a cell phone has one.

Your congress in action. Bought and paid for. They don't care about our soldiers, other people's lives, or what's happening in other countries.

Why do people act as if that it won't happen here? Sure, there are many military men that would refuse that order, but there are many that would not. Especially when you have your superior officers telling you that they are "terrorists" or the "bad guys". We've seen our military men blasting away civilians at ease and being quite casual about it.




To think our own military would not fire on us is laughable at best. History and current events show otherwise.

Since Kent state was made the example here , just a reminder that the military on campus were "reservist" (weekend warriors) not fulltime military personnel , many of them were the same age as the students .None of this makes this right but it was a different time maybe you don't think it matters but you would be wrong .

2004 Fallujah. Absolute hellhole.

2014 Fallujah. About to become an absolute hellhole.

I feel disgusted that so many brave men lost their lives for this to be the result.

Re: All things Middle East related

I just found this headline oddly compelling, the story is less so, but it seems like the whole world is becoming bent on seeing who can bomb who first.

Libyan leader threatens to bomb North Korean oil tanker - CNN.com

probably just the media's need for dramatic headlines though.

Female Polio Worker Brutally Killed in Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan – The bullet-riddled body of a female polio worker was recovered Monday in Peshawar, northwest Pakistan, with her lips cut and hands broken.

The woman, identified as Salma Farooq, 35, was asleep Sunday night when eight armed men allegedly entered her home and tied-up her husband and tortured her five children.

A senior polio official in Peshawar, Mohamamd Faheem, said the armed men kidnapped Farooq and shifted her to an unknown location.

“The armed men cut her lips and broke her hands and dumped the body in the fields outside Peshawar,” the police official said.

If the locals see that the West is actually helping then the interested parties lose their grip. Next thing you know all women will want an education and then where will we be? Women be getting uppity and shit!
