I found it amusing when Bush was president they had the soldier death count at the bottom of every news program to remind everyone how many men and women in uniform were dying in the war, but when Obama became president all those death counts disappeared like a rabbit in some magic act.

I don't watch tv so I am glad there is a wall at our local grocers also at the regional wmart with pictures of all lost vets put there by family members. Also a small town I lived in in Minnesota knew all their vets. they were one of the most heavily drawn from areas in the country. we had a flag for every vet who left for iraq and the park was full of flags.

You have shown no respect for dead soldiers unless you can spin it politically. Even then you pay no respect. JUST LIKE THIS THREAD.

I don't masturbate in threads either. Doesn't mean I don't do it.

Gee I feel sorry about every soldier that has died in all wars.

And sense WWII the Federal Govt. has made each one a political masterpiece.

Nam was the worst as it was fought using WWII tactics and manpower as replaceable.

Unlike the last two. Yet today we find everything is changed. Screw Obama, as he knows that today men will die in numbers again if collateral damage is a worry.

This ISIS is not any enemy anyone has faced before in many ways. And even though it is known little is paid attention to it.

Muslims have the highest birth rate so the replacements will never stop coming.
The mother who have lost male children to the many battle will raise the new batch (sorry can't think of a word better) with HATE and the desire to KILL as they grow of age.
Look at many of the middle east countries, the school books and a lot in their life's relate to death.


As Dylan said "The Times They Are A Changing" Does any of this make any sense to you?

Yes it is a strange phenomenon isn't it? Why do you suppose the media would do such a thing? I guess if the masses are not told that people are dying in war every day, then there must not be anyone dying. Do you think that Code Pink knew soldiers were dying at 3 times the rate under Obama? Or was the entire left wing kept in the dark? Cause I'm sure if they knew, they would have tripled their efforts to stop the war.

salty war is even older than the girl working for a few bits of silver (whatever was used) in the dark ally, behind a large out crop of rocks, in exchange for sex.... That is if you count war back then between just a few idiots wanting what the others have.
