More marines died wrecking motorcycles than did in combat (over some period of time recently that escapes me; a month, three months, something).

All the more reason to de-ass the sovereign nation of Iraq and save that money.

Jay, look, if we pull out, we can convert that $10 billion a month into a tax break for the rich.

Oh wait, that's not you.

I guess that's why our military men and women are voting for John McCain 10 to 1. Lying to yourself to sooth your black soul is one thing, but please don't try to make us believe your BearShit.

You have any stats on that voting ratio. It is not like the one I see.

I look at 22 different polls. If it's there, I see it. So far, I have not seen it.

Good news! Our Hitler-style invasion is killing less people! Lets do more!

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.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Just to keep some perspective, about 45 homicides were committed in Chicago last month.
