Although I don’t share the extreme views of some here, it is important to consider the long term consequences…and there are many.
For me the spending is a huge issue, but I didn’t get to sit in those budget meetings. The thing is, imo, the removal of Saddam gives a chance to those that never ever would have had one. To me that is priceless. Will it amount to anything, maybe, maybe not. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have tried.
Everyone has their thoughts, mine are, we give billions away to fat slobs with a dozen kids, but we can’t spend money helping the oppresed? I don’t agree with that that is all. [/quote]
Why are you not jumping up and down supporting us invading Egypt, Syria, Iran, Russia, China, most of Africa, etc? Is there something special about people in Iraq or is oppression oppression? I can only assume you think our work has just started and we need to get busy with the rest of the world correct? I mean we should at least try right?
That’s just being consistent. [/quote]
Did nanyone say anything about Egypt, Syria, Ira, Russia, China, Africa, etc… How do you know my thought on the matter?
Ya actually, if some dick head is spraying “his” people with mustad gas, I’d say we should step in. Oh, but it’s expensive, says the RICHEST nation in the world that consumes THE MOST resources.
It’s cool though we can sit behind a computer enjoying our freedom, I mean fuck those kids in Africa being forced into slavery or prositution, the DOW is down…[/quote]
I just think you’re being inconsistent is all. How can you support the Iraq War on terms of oppression and then ignore oppression in other areas? If oppression is worth that war why is it not worth others? Isn’t oppression taking place all over the world today? All I was saying is surely you support us getting rid of other regimes/oppressed people right?
As for expensive, again you seem to be very much against billions to “fat slobs with a dozen kids.” You seem to be very much against health care for say poor people. Homelessness, mental health, education, the kids born here who are in awful situations every day?
Man I’ve seen you RAILING against government spending and action in other threads. But here it’s we’re the richest nation.
I’m not even really disagreeing with you, I just think personally you’re being pretty inconsistent on somethings. [/quote]
I don’t get to make these choices. I would love to re-allocate wasted money to help those in need in Egypt, I’ll run for office, if you vote for me that’s what I’ll try to do. Unfortunately that’s not my place in this world. and again, how can I be being inconsistent when you didn’t even ask or know my position?
Again, you are jumping to conclusions about me based off one sentence. I am all for helping others THAT NEED IT. Fat slobs that can hold down gainful employment don’t need it. They made CHOICES that fucked themselves. 7 year old slave/prostitutes in Somalia didn’t get any say in the matter.
And again, here you go. We are the richest nation, that doesnt mean we can just spend spend spend, I never said we should spend 10 Trillion of the military every year, did I? I have said in other threads and in this one military spending can and in many cases should be cut. Do I need to go back through my posts to find a quote for you?
I’m not being inconsistent at all.
