No doubt about it, we sure as hell aren't the same country we were in the 40's.
We've turned into a bunch of spineless fucking cunts that are afraid of their own
cowardly shadow.

We have a, what is my country doing for me attitude, just look the fuck around, it's mighty simple to see! Fat & lazy, give me my pie birth righteous bullshit.

For fuck sakes we have some of our elected officials calling our service members terrorists and murders.

Don't mistake the Kookbergers for "everybody else." They are actually few and far between, they just make a lot of noise and are supported by the drive-by media. You're falling into their trap of thinking "they speak for us." It's a loser's game they are playing--and losing!

Let's not forget. In the '40s, when we were attacked by Japan, we didn't respond by invading Argentina.

Let's not forget: When we were attacked by Japan, we knew exactly who attacked us and where they lived. How does that compare w/ being attacked by a bunch of Islamic terrorists from all over the world? You're living in a world that no longer exists.

Oh, what about Israel? We pay them to be our friends, what's up with that? How about Kuwait? We liberated it but to this day I don't see Kuwaitis stepping up to the plate and help us with Iraq. What about UAE? Aren't they our friend since they own much of Citi and other banks? What about Egypt that we bribe to keep its people oppressed?

You're missing the point. If we are attacked by our friends, we should pretend that we weren't, and strike back at whatever country provides the greatest opportunity to enrich the administration's friends and contributors.

Get with the program!

Iraq demands 'clear timeline' for US withdrawal

BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraq's foreign minister insisted Sunday that any security deal with the United States must contain a "very clear timeline" for the departure of U.S. troops. A suicide bomber struck north of Baghdad, killing at least five people including an American soldier.

Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told reporters that American and Iraqi negotiators were "very close" to reaching a long-term security agreement that will set the rules for U.S. troops in Iraq after the U.N. mandate expires at the end of the year.

Zebari said the Iraqis were insisting that the agreement include a "very clear timeline" for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces, but he refused to talk about specific dates.

"We have said that this is a condition-driven process," he added, suggesting that the departure schedule could be modified if the security situation changed.

But Zebari made clear that the Iraqis would not accept a deal that lacks a timeline for the end of the U.S. military presence.

"No, no definitely there has to be a very clear timeline," Zebari replied when asked if the Iraqis would accept an agreement that did not mention dates.

Differences over a withdrawal timetable has become one of the most contentious issues remaining in the talks, which began early this year. U.S. and Iraqi negotiators missed a July 31 target date for completing the deal, which must be approved by Iraq's parliament.

President Bush has steadfastly refused to accept any timetable for bringing U.S. troops home. Last month, however, Bush and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki agreed to set a "general time horizon" for a U.S. departure...
