Default Re: Guantanamo Bay = Jihad University?

It's like Tony is reading my mind..........

When I was in the Marines fighting in the desert the first time we engaged these sheet wearing nutjobs I was direct witness to the way our government deals with war. Example..... Each Marine was given only 20 rounds(yeah I said 20) and had direct orders NOT to shoot until shot at even if it was point blank range. On one occasion we were taking sniper fire and were told NOT to return fire! So we sat there laying in the sand praying we would make it while this guy pearched on a water tower took shots at us. When he ran out of ammo he was taken prisoner. Then 2 armed MPs took him to the front of the shower line then straight to the front of the chow line so he could eat! Meanwhile US soldiers who hadn't had a shower or a hot meal in months watched the piece of shit who just spent the last 9 hours tring to kill us get first dibs on the very things we craved daily! And to rub the salt deeper, one Marine had to give up his protective gear against chemical weapons because that scumbag didn't have any. Imagine standing in formation and being told "one" of you HAS TO give up your gear to the prisoner! Man I'm getting pissed all over again......

Forgive my ranting guys ... got caught up in the moment........

Let's face it folks, bi-partisan government is a failed experiment. When you take a group of people and split them in two and tell them only one side gets the majority you instanly get the sniping and preverbial walls between them that we see everyday. In the end WE lose!

I have said it for years now....... Political correctness will be this countrys downfall!

I honestly thought that 911 was going to WAKE this country up. We ended up hitting the snooze button.

I'm glad to see that some of my Steeler breatheren are on the same page as me.

With the shit that goes on in this world today sometimes I look to the sky for that giant burning rock to bring us sweet relief from the insanity!

Thanks GB. My chest used to swell with pride because I served my country. Now I see so much contempt and indifferance towards our troops that I sometimes question why I put my ass on the line for "some" of the people in this country.

Then people like you make me realize that in between all the assholes and degenerates are "good people" worthy of sacrifice! Thanks for giving a shit!

Iraq, Iran, the USSR, Cuba, and North Korea are all countries that don't practice bi-partisan politics.

So you believe the ridiculous amounts of back and forth argueing all the while coming to a stalemate is working to the publics favor? You can honestly say that adding a third party with an equal amount of power to the process is dumb? Your against having a government that doesn't jump on one issue simply because the other side doesn't agree? When was the last time "both" parties agreed on something other than thier pay raises? It's always left or right with no middle ground! If you are so closed minded to the idea that 3 parties puts an end to the left and right side standoffs and allows for issues to be voted on based on merit and NOT power play grandstanding then you are either naive or YOU are dumb!

Hammer....

The words of a famous...and infamous Navy Seal come back to me when reading your post. He was talking about the attitude of a state department worker in the mid-east.

"Why should anyone else die when Good ole Americans can die instead?"


The politicization of Vietnam rears it ugly head in many places.

Now, there are too many lawyers, too many politicians, too many been counters, and too few warriors in charge of wars.

Period.

2. Do not make needless, incessant usage of:

-Emoticons.
-Line breaks or ALL-CAPS.
-Nested quotes.
-Giant fonts.
-Bad language. Mild cursing is tolerated in moderation, but be careful of your tone, especially against fellow posters.

Anyway.....a third party (or a fouth fitth or sixth) is an awesome idea.

Here are a couple you might want to check out if you're really serious about getting behind a third party:

The US Centist Party

The Moderate Party

I've been following the Moderate Party and I've been hoping they would catch on. But no luck so far.

See my example and the few that came after. All non-bipartisan governments. All dictatorships. You never said you wanted one, but that seems to be what you're gonna get with one.
