14. Oh, fuck, Here we go again.
Edited on Thu Dec-15-05 08:34 PM by Redstone
The best thing for us to do is to get the fuck out of Iraq. Now.

Maybe YOU would like the job of explaining to the parents, spouses, and children of the next two thousand to die over there, exactly why their loved one had to die because staying there was "a good strategy and a plan for success."

So what the fuck do you define as "success?" Another 53,000 names to put on a new Wall?

You're using people's lives to bolster a political aim. Shame, shame on you. That kind of thinking is no better than bush's.
