  •  RE: Disagree w/ Every death on the front page (3.50)

    Let the people see what war is like. This isn't an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush's folly.

    That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.

    I'm shocked that any American can feel nothing about the violent deaths of other Americans.

    I don't think anyone outside their families can know 'why' these men were in Iraq.

    I hope on reflection you will realize that those killed are owned more than the epitaph of 'screw them'.

    I'm a loyal liberal Democrat and a Vietnam era veteran (in a non-fighting capacity), and I'm offended by your attitude.  This attitude will be quoted against other opponents of the Iraq war and Democrats in general.

    I do agree that the photos and accurate coverage of what is going on should be available to the electorate.

    I'm totally opposed to the government being allowed to employ military fighters or security personnel from private companies - regardless of possible economic savings.  This should be outlawed - this is more than a slippery slope, it is a danger to our republic.

    •  Cry for the Iraqis... (2.16)
      Do you realize how pompous your words are?  Why should we feel so sad over the deaths of four people just because they happen to be Americans.  Who gives a shit?  How many Iraqis have died thanks to our idiotic war.  Those are the true victims.  None of those deaths matter apparently because they're not Americans.  

      And we wonder why the world hates us?
