Are you completely naive, or stupid to say something like that? We have snipers here in the States, hell they just sentenced Malvoe here in Montgomery County a few months ago. You might recall he and his partner killed a bunch of people in Mayland and Virginia........ "Why is it possible for snipers to get so close to troops so often, so easy." That's what a sniper is trained to do.... That has got to be the dumbest thing you have said so far..........truly.....

I'm failing to see how your post relates to the quote you selected. You're going on about what snipers do for a living, and he's discussing his concern over the continual stream of deaths happening after we've declared victory. What exactly is your point?

Because the mission accomplished was the removal and or death / capture of Saddam.

As far as the snipers getting close I suspect they are at a distance of 300-500 yards, this in an urban setting.( roof tops ,windows, punched out holes in walls)
Now the camera guy is lot closer and it is clearly for effects and deception.
You know to been shown as propaganda.

Let them (CNN) show it, I'm with RFC I'll just watch another news channel.
Hey, who knows maybe they well show some insurgents being shot
but beings they are wearing civilian clothes they could say they were innocent Iraqis out
walking their AK's.

Don't waste your breath on these guys. Truth fucks them all up. They have hid the caskets, they have hid the enemy dead, they have hid the dead children. To be forced to see what their fucking war is all about is just too much for them.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

How are they doing that? By showing America your fucking war, a war where I have continually said on this forum is nothing more than asking our boys to stand around and wait to get shot? And now you're all upset that you have to see that is exactly what they are doing? How I wish everyone of you war supporters had the guts to stand on the same street corners in their place.

Funny thing is that I have gone to the recruitment offices to sign up, however it seems they dont seem to want a 33 yoa male with a college degree. Maybe in other places but not here in Illinois. KMA.

Hey, what's with the negative can't-do attitude? You should, nay, you must try harder! Try again in Wisconsin or Indiana. Victory is just an unscrupulous recruiter away.
