  •  Please cite an example when Bush told truth (none)
    That gives you such great faith in these numbers.
    •  Oh Dry Up (4.00)
      Give us a source that gives anything like credible information that there are 7,500 US soldiers who've been killed in Iraq and have not been accounted for.  The source cited in the other diary is from TBR, which is the web equivalent of a cesspool.

      As I've already stated, this is an extraordinary accusation, and the enormous burden of proof is on those who make it.  If you have nothing, shut the hell up.  You're wasting everybody's time.

      •  Give us a reliable source (none)
        for the number of mercs and foreign nationals wearing US uniforms in Iraq.
        •  NO (none)
          The burden is on you, tin-foil hat wizard.  You're making the accusation that the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq is more than 5 times greater than the number reported.  Show us something to back that up.

          •  Please do not put words in my mouth (none)
            Judging from your ratings and verbal abuse you appear to be extremely emotional and  upset by the idea that anyone would question/doubt  George Bush's numbers and accounting of war dead, and are not above using abusive tactics and language to attack others who hold opposing views and do not trust Bush as you seem to do.

            That is your problem, not mine.

            Given: Bush has lied about everything relating to this war.

            Do you deny that?

            It is only a matter of time, and a question of degree, before we find out the magnitude of deception by Bush's military  about hidden US employed (including foreign national green card hopefuls and mercs wearing US uniforms) war deaths.

            Do you deny that?

            If you are hung up on a dispute over a specific  number of total US govmt employed (including mercs, greencard hopefuls, and US residents) military/paramilitary personnel killed in Iraq, then what total number do you believe have been killed?

            • 1700? Only what George tells you?

            • No way of knowing/we will probably never know?

            If you go for any of these answers, then you might as well have another chug of the Koolaid, and then stick your head back into the sand.
            •  You Have Absolutely Nothing To Add To This (none)
              Discussion except a lot of idiotic conjecture that because BushCo. has lied about so much else, they're lying about the number of troops killed in Iraq.  

              You are beneath contempt.

              I'd tell you to go rave on whatever street corner you inhabit, but you probably do that when Kinkos shuts down it's Internet service for the night and ushers you out.

              If 7,500 such unreported deaths have occurred, there are tens of thousands of people closely connected to the dead who would be screaming bloody murder (quite literally).  Show one example of a spouse, parent, sibling, close friend or significant other who has noticed their loved one's death has been covered up, and has accused the government of being guilty of what you claim they've done.  Just one.

              Unless and until you do, you stand guilty of being the same type of lying swine that makes up the Bush Administration.

              •  Since you requested, here is (none)
                my previous comment on the subject of mass graves of hidden dead US troops observed by Mazen Dana (prize winning Reuters journalist shortly before he was killed by US troops outside of Abu Ghraib in August 2003)   from the other diary that you must have overlooked.

                You seem to be completely evading the question of US MIL concealing the deaths/casualties of Mexican and central american national enlistees and mercs on US govmt payroll in Iraq.

                Why? They are part of the US forces in Iraq, and their deaths should be counted just like the deaths of American citizen US troops.

                Or do you disagree?

                Please explain your position/and understanding of the math on the deaths of green-card hopeful US troops in Iraq.

                •  You Link To Yourself . . . (none)
                  Pathetic.  That's nothing but more baseless conjecture.

                  Certainly nothing worth considering.


                  You can't find any, can you?

                  In the hopes that even your skull isn't thick enough to be impervious to the truth, read this.  

                  Have a nice rest of your life, and may the rubber walls protect you from the injuries you try to do yourself.
