Let's see, Saddam killed thousands every year just for fun and profit and we kill a few to save the masses...... sounds like we need to kill a bunch more to me.

According you you algebraic geniuses, it would be much better if more Americans died so it would be 'fair'.

I think you purposely miss the point. The point was, 0:0 would be best. Why bother to kill people who are not threatening you?

Oh yeah, they have oil under their land and you think it is ok to kill them for it when we could have just bought the stuff. That justified the 1100 American soldiers dying in Iraq and the tens of thousands that have been physically and psychologically injured or maimed. Yeah, that oil we need to pay $50 per barrel for, and a dozen or two American lives a week to have the priviledge to pay twice the price oil was before we invaded. Yeah, that's the ticket. Jim

I'm curious, and I'll state my question in a very simple form since some here have trouble understanding what people are really saying...

KV - Do you have kids in Iraq? Or at least overseas in the military? Do you have kids at all?

You speak like your an expert on all matters, especially anti-Bush, so I was just curious if you really know what it's like to have children in Iraq and know what they may be thinking or feel....

Or do you even care?

obviously you've been consuming the worm form the bottom of the bottle because "we kill a few" in lieu of the title just seems moronic.

Noooo kidding?

I chose to make another point using the same data. Believe it or not, often data may have more than one interpretation.

Don't like that I point it out? Okay with me. Devise argument with my point and carry your argument forward.

Oh, I suppose I could go into an extended, verbose expostulation like some folks do. Sometimes I do when it looks like an interesting area of analysis. But when its just obvious and trite point-making, I like short sentences, small words, and single paragraphs. Why waste folks' time who've already made-up their minds? Think I'll convince any of that crew that they're position is completely, tragically wrong? I doubt it. If you go through life looking for badness in people, you'll find it.

Ask unloaded, reasonable questions or make clear, unambiguous rational argument and I'll engage in-kind. Mess around with tricky phraseology and misrepresentation, and you get the more succinct response.
