That's 14 less fighting for Israel. :D

********************************************

Should bring all the boys home, eh!


From your article

Eleven U.S. troops and three American law-enforcement officials were killed in two separate helicopter crashes today, one of the war's heaviest one-day losses for U.S. forces, military officials said.


I wouldn't call this great news. I wouldn't call it news at all. 2 days ago 160 Iraqi's died and hundreds where injured, 60 kids are still missing all due to 2 bomb attacks. This incident was bigger news abroad (and still is) but not here in the US. Even the BV didn't bother with saying anything about it.

While this might sound cold (so be it) I can't possible see why 14 American deaths would be news let alone great news if over a hundred Iraqi deaths aren't news.

Besides I find your logic to be flawed. 14 American soldiers dead doesn't even equal a grain of sand on a beach......and so these deaths don't change anything in regards to fighting for Israel.

Nope....if there is news here it is that you dangled out some bait with that crafty wordiness of yours and you promptly got a few fish to bite. ;)

* Well OK, it is good news and it's bad news. The bad news is that some people are mourning, and the good news might be that many more will be against this war. I certainly thought the war was less worth it after hearing of those helicopter crashes and I didn't think I could think it could be any less worthy than I already thought. I hope others are of the opinion the war in Afghanistan is intolerable and unconscionable.

* I only heard rumours about it. You are right, it wasn't exactly broadcasted news. perhaps you could start a thread about it?

* Of course.

Besides I find your logic to be flawed. 14 American soldiers dead doesn't even equal a grain of sand on a beach......and so these deaths don't change anything in regards to fighting for Israel.


* Well if you want to be literal about it then yes. But the ramifications could potentially be far more destructive to the Godless tribes who profit from war.

Nope....if there is news here it is that you dangled out some bait with that crafty wordiness of yours and you promptly got a few fish to bite. ;)


* I also dredged-up a caelocanth, a megamouth goldfish and a hand-grenade. -- Looks like next time the pre-historic fish (which lives completely in the dark and does not know the light of day), and the fanged-goldfish stir up the waters and muddy the issues I'll land myself a bomb which will blow me off the beach.

I don't like it when anyone's death is celebrated and that includes Iraqis or anyone else. I didn't cheer when Saddam was executed. I don't much like it when anyone is killed.

But for anyone to waltz in here and celebrate the deaths of American soldiers, no matter the far-fetched long term goal, is truly what's 'unconscionable'. The reaction to said celebration should not only have been expected, but, much worse should have been and probably was expected.

Now--I hate to drag Obama into this but as he was elected to end the Bush anti-terror policies I would like to at least point something out. Obama said--and the entire Liberal crowd cheered in response--that the war in Afghanistan is the crucial, fundamental war. Now he's waffling and there is talk of pulling out entirely.

I will agree, if Obama doesn't intend on winning the war there for the right reasons, we absolutely should pull out. There's no sense in us just sitting around while the enemy emboldens and good Americans get killed.
