George Bush should write a textbook on how to create terrorists and insurgents. He sure is good at it.

The can't get out of their hotel rooms because of all the insurgents that George Bush has created. That and their editors and producers aren't allowed to piss the advertisers off.

This proves all Georgie cares about is oil and finishing what his daddy could not. Why doesn't the American populace wake up to these atrocities "W" is committing.

You guys are also right, "W" is creating the next generation of so called "insurgants" and "terrorists".

God knows there was never any trouble in Iraq before George got there.

How dare he disrupt their Utopian society.

Read the facts, Crit. There are more kids starving now than there were under Saddam. There is less clean water, less medicine, less electricity. George has made things worse, not better.

So making more starving kids is okay? There are dead people everywhere too, does that make it okay to off random passers-by?

Yes, R.B., that's exactly what I'm saying.

No, really. There are bad things going on everywhere. It has always been that way, and it will always be that way. Sure a lot of people have a lot to say about it, but as in most things- people never really care enough to actaully shut there trap long enought to do anything about it.
P.S.

Making more starve.

More than likely they've been starving for a while...you just did not know about it.

Is that an excuse to accept them?

It doesn't have to be that way. Believing that it does makes it self-perpetuating.

Actually the same NGOs that were tracking it before are tracking it now. The invasion and ensuing insurgency has made it more difficult, raising the likelyhood that we know less about it now than we did before.

Just sit there and tell yourself everything is fine though.

First of all, there is still a war going on. There will always be more suffering during a war than when it's over.

Secondly, those numbers you are talking about are completely unverifiable. After all, Saddam received over 99% of the votes from the last Iraqi "free" election. Please don't refer me to any numbers the UN came up with either because every one knows that he had the UN in his back pocket.

No, but when more children die in the Sudan per day than the 2 year Iraqi war combined, I would question peoples motives. Are they really lovers of children or US haters.

Nope, Georgie said it was over. You can't have it both ways, little buddy.

So the US was bombing Iraq throughout the entire "peace" period. Things are worse now. Dead babies are dead babies. Are you naking excuses or celebrating?

Quote:

No, they are as verifiable as anything the US government has presented.

Quote:

That has nothing to do with any of this. These are numbers that have no relation to Saddam. The fact that you would bring that up is either an ignorance of the facts or an attempt to deceive.

Bullshit, lies, intellectual cowardice, and strong bent towards moral terpitude. Deal in facts or don't deal, little buddy.

Maybe you should have a long, hard look at what the US has done in regard to Sudan before you end up looking like a dickless wonder again.

Let's take a look at life in Iraq before the U.S. got involved in trade sanctions against the country. I'm sure you're just regurgitating Fox News propaganda. Never, ever, ever, the whole picture.

Personal attacks, so I will choose to ignore you.

If you would like to start at the sanctions you can blame the UN. Every penny of the oil for food program was supposed to go the food and medicine.

Saddam built 5, Billion dollars palaces, bought tanks and other weapons for his army, cars for his followers, paid off politicians with hundreds of millions dollars in France, Russia and the UN.
The estimate of theft from the oil for food program is stated at a MINIMUM of 20 Billion dollars.

My question to you would be, how many children would have been saved if they had an extra 20 BILLION dollars to work with?

Blah! straving childern mean nothing to you, its just a tool to trash the UN. We all know the UN has some serious problems to solve. but at least they TRIED to do something. Sanctions do not work, only the people suffer. But I am sure you have a better idea, no doubt it will have something to do with your wallet.

Two questions, Crit.

1) How many would have dies without Oil for Food?

2) The US, as well as the rest of the Security Council, had complete oversight over every single transaction in Oil for Food. Why didn't they do anything? Why are they now trying put all blame on the UN?

Dude, my above statement pretty much says that everything is not fine. I grew up in one of the poorest areas of the U.S. where people starve all the time and make do however they can- all the while people claiming to be compassionate to the poor make them the highlight of jokes and insults.

I can understand that one Jamie, it happens all the time, its called being a hypocrite, and putting on the nice fuzzy warm compassionate farce, especially for political gain. For instance take George bush, here is a man that only seems to have compassion for human beings as long as they are a fetus or have a eating tube. How many programs has george bush cut for seniors and disabled people in the united states?? How many people has george bush executed as governer of texas?? Its all the suffering people between the fetus and deathbed that does not matter to him, what does that tell you jamie.??

I must disagree with that, peapod, it's not as great as your rhetorical tripe. You win.

They obviously mean nothing to you. More children died In Africa today then will ever die because of the sanctions in Iraq. Why aren't you so concerned about them.

It's because you can't blame the US/Israel/Illuminati or aliens for it.

Why don't you come clean and just admit that you are anti-American?

Blah! I will come clean, I am anti-bush government! Just like half of the american citizens living in the united states. Great people I hear them on talk back all the time... Next tool please!
