Quote# 24488

Discussing US soldiers opposing the Iraq War:
Anyone could sign up there with a very common name and claim to be a vet, that was my only point. They could be al-queda operatives as far as anyone really knows. Or Ramsey Clark.

So those who oppose Cheney's Folly are automatically ultra-liberals or terrorists? No real GI would ever question the ethics?

Oh. Well, I avoid Faux Spews, I guess that explains my ignorance here.

Any sane, intelligent person opposes the fraudulent war in Iraq.
That leaves people who voted for Dubya in the last election supporting it.

I'm a veteran of the Iraq War and I vehemently oppose it.

BurntBush, I salute you, and I wish the current admin. would extend you the benefits every veteran deserves.

I spent the opening phase of Operation Iraqi Liberation out in the Persian Gulf, about one mile behind USS Constellation. And, if I can call myself a vet of the 'war' (REMF that I am), I opposed it before it started as a sideshow to the real enemy (Osama Bin Forgotten)... since then, I've found out it was started on lies and wishful thinking.

Anyone who disagrees with the commander in chief is a bad Nazi! Sieg heil!

Or they may be men with common sense who have FOUGHT, unlike you, in that ground and know what they´re talking about.

It's perfectly possible (but no fun) to serve in the military and be loyal to your country, but to believe that the government's being bloody stupid and to make your opinion heard through the proper channels. Indeed, were you to feel unswerving loyalty without exercising your own judgement, you'd be the kind of dangerous minion that makes war crimes that much easier to commit.

You could sign up right now and go on over there and help out, ripped. Oh that's right you're a neo-con Republican, bravest of the brave with other people's lives, chickenest of the chickens with their own.

I don't get how this is fundie. A bit paranoid, perhaps, but not fundie.

I'm concerned that people are just going through the Public Administration clicking \"APPROVE\" on every quote. Let's be a bit more discriminating, folks, or we will be up to our eyebrows in marginal quotes. We should only approve those quotes which are ridiculous, hateful, monumentally self-righetous or otherwise truly notably fundie. If we just post everything even moderately fundie, we will drown in a sea of marginal quotes and the site will weaken beyond redemption.

I'd like to introduce you to my brother-in-law. He served for a year in Iraq and he opposes the war.

Yeah, I thought that too, after I submitted it. Had I not seen it on rapture-ready, I doubt I would have even submitted it.

So could you be. A plot to make Americans look like fucking morons.

I win.

“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

Dissent is the willingness to put yourself on the line against a much more powerful foe to do what you believe to be right.

Kid, have you met a vet?

Oh fuck off. You're fapping at the thought of a needless war over here because you're safe. You don't have to sleep worrying all the while about your safety. You don't have to worry about being sent back home in a body bag. You don't have to worry about the fact that anyone...ANYONE they see on a patrol could well kill them. You don't have to slog through a war with no real justification anymore, and was started on a pretty shaky reason to begin with. And you have the nerve to call the soldiers on the front lines that are opposed to this frauds? You make me sick.

Congratulations to everyone who has managed to comment on this post.

I can't make any sense of it whatsoever.

Sign up where? Why a common name? Why should someone with a common name be called Ramsey Clark? Who is Ramsey Clark? Isn't that two surnames? Is it common for American vets to have two surnames? Why would anyone claim to be a vet if they weren't, given the risk that someone will call your bluff by expecting you to treat their sick cat?
