I do follow the courage of my convictions...I am a pacifist and I regularly march and speak out for my belief that war should be the LAST OPTION, not the first. Surely, war should not be fought by the middle and lower class of a nation for the economic benefit of the upper class? (The folks profiting from this war definitely represent that top 1% of our population)
Another Logically-Flawed AttackWell, another moonbat fool is attacking Republicans who support America's efforts in Iraq, but whose children are not fighting there, asserting that "Mitt Romney supports the Iraq war [sic] so .... Why isn't a single one of his five sons fighting in it?"
Of course, it's not a real question; it's just an effort to attack a Republican.
I've got a better question: "Mosquito" opposes American efforts (it's not a "war"; that was won four years ago), so why hasn't he gone to Iraq and taken up arms against American forces."
After all, if that's the measure of the courage of one's convictions for "Mosquito," clearly, he/she fails, too.
Or is it just his/her "logic" which miserably fails? posted by James Young
I consider it patriotic to speak out and attempt to steer my country on a course that I believe is more beneficial to my country.
I am shocked that you would actually propose to another American that they should take up arms against American troops. First, I support our troops (even though I don't support the mission) by advocating that they receive all the benefits due to them, including pay raises, quality health care, etc. etc. I have frequently criticized the Bush/Cheney regime for NOT advocating to increase the troops pay, benefits, or quality of healthcare. The last thing I would do is take up arms against American troops. Nor would I propose that any American (no matter what their beliefs) do such an un-patriotic, treasonous act.
Shame on you for proposing such a thing AND refusing to post my comment.
