In short, yes. Either play a role in choosing your leader and your nation's course of action, or shut up when things don't go your way.AllenETreat wrote:So, good forum-ites, if i don't vote, my opinion doesn't count?
"Bu$h youth"? Pardon me? What makes you think that we can't comprehend that war is a negative? Let me tell you a story. Last summer, when I was visiting my grandparents, I happened upon this odd dagger in the old cedar chest. Looked like blood on the blade. It was. My great-uncle Delmar took that knife from a German and killed him with it, back in '45. Delmar caught a round in the knee that day, walked with crutches until the day he died. Don't even think that we can't know war's cost.I'm not going to waste any more time trying to present the rationale
General William Tecumseh Sherman did : "War is Hell" because it'll
be lost on "the Bu$h youth"

What Secretary of Defense, Secretary of War, or President ever really has??? Want to read some scary crap pick up a copy of Richard Frank's Downfall: The End of the Imperial Japanese Empire. How does 1,000,000 additional American casualties to take the Japanese mainland sound. Our intelligence seriously underestimated the Japanese defensive forces on the southern island of Kyushu where the intial thrust of Operation Olympic was to begin. But that was the plan. No exit paln there either.dyad wrote:After I watched the "Rumsfield Wars" on Frontline..the war was not well thought out.

This is the age of greed, there are benefits of been the "most powerful man on earth" dont you know.
We are mear ants to be stepped on, thats the way goverment works.
Is it not strange that people that have so much, are the ones always caught out doing illegal activities to better their own lifestyle.
What about the poor shmuck working his *** off everyday, who has enough moral values not to steep to the rank of a goverment official.
Lets be straight, its not about the oil, its not about the welfare of your great country....Its all about the money.
After all, what talks and what walks?
