To make it clear, in case anyone thinks I oppose this war because of the reasons you mention, which are pretty silly, I oppose this war because to date it does not meet the criteria for a Just War.Originally posted by JFlosum:
I just resent the heck out of the fact that so many people are so willing to criticize and defame the nation’s policy purely on a partisan bases or other such nonsense; Bush was in the National Guard, his daughters won’t enlist,
I didn't say they were reasons not to go to war.Originally posted by JFlosum:
NurseNell? You posted those things, I didn't !
What IF your daughter WANTED to enlist? Would you take a shotgun to her too? Just who should serve Pat?Originally posted by pat:My daughter had a phone call from an army recruiter a couple weeks ago and she told him he had better not show up on our doorstep because her mom would meet him with a shotgun. And I'm her mother! And she was right!!!
I think Pat can speak for herself. I still would like to know her answer to who she thinks should serve.Originally posted by jersey6876:
[QB]I know for a fact that Pat would be proud of her children, no matter their decision.
Right, a little sarcasm goes a long way. Obviously I've not done everything or know everything. There was one perfect person once, they crucified Him.Kind of like saying, "There is nothing that NurseNell hasn't done or anything that she doesn't know." I am sure most people would assume that it wasn't meant literally. Unless of course you have and do.
None of us who are parents want our children to die. There are plenty of dangerous occupations: being a police officer, fireman, or astronaut come to mind but there are many others. Dry cleaners are exposed to high levels of carcinogens, coal miners risk death every time they go in a mine, steel workers risk dying in hot molten steel, Greyhound bus drivers risk crazy people killing them, postal workers risk a crazed co-worker killing them. Pilots and stweardesses die in plane crashes. And then for those with safe occupations there is still the risk of death. There are those who drink and drive, or those who smoke. Those who drive motorcycles without helmets. Those who dive into unknown waters and break their necks. There are those who are sexually promsicuous and get HIV and a whole slew of STD's.Originally posted by jersey6876:
However, I pray that they don't, no different then I pray that they don't choose an occupation that could possibly end their life.
As the communists nations have as much or more overt conflict with Muslim militants, why would they support opponents of war with Iraq other than the fact that they realize war and political instability are non productive? I would be interested in seeing a source for these connections. Last week someone wrote a letter to the editor opposing Bush and hate talk radio out of Wausau called the writer a communist.Originally posted by jersey6876:
Several of the protests that have been taking place have been funded by the American Communist Party. We are so concerned with those behind the pro-war decisions, we may not realize who is against war. NOTE: I am not saying that all people who march against the war are Communists - for those who may try to make that assumption. I am only stating that this particular party funds the anti-war movement.
