We paid a far higher price in the Korean War (36,000 dead). Few would have thought in 1953 that this war was a raging success.
Six decades later, South Korea has become one of the most prosperous and freest countries in the world.
Can anyone argue South Koreans aren't grateful for the sacrifices we made for their freedom?
And speaking of freedom...Paul McCartney wrote this song after 9/11 and has sung it many times since.

How quickly we forget about the importance of "freedom" - which even McCartney said is what we stand for. Why would we not want to die for others' freedom?

Of the 33 nations the US has bombed and/or invaded since 1946, which one exactly was to protect our "freedom".

You're a little late. This is old news.
Pouring water up three really bad guys' noses is still up in the air as far as being "torture". They weren't maimed and a physician was present. The CIA agents also had to be waterboarded. Would we "torture" our own guys?
Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, clearly implied it was this type of interrogation which helped put the puzzle together to find bin Laden's courier.
Thanks for the crazy response, illogical and absurd.
If it isnt so bad why dont you do it?

Two more Democrats went berserk and killed people, this time in Boston.

Democrat: A loser who is dissatisfied with his/her position in life and allows their own hate and resentment to overtake common sense.

That's basically what the uncle said about the two "losers"

Are you just plain stupid or is just pretending 5000 Kurds - mostly women and children - weren't found lying dead in the streets from a Saddam WMD your preferred mechanism of denial?
Realtime may answer, but I'd like a piece of you on this.

How do you know Hussein had WMDs which were secretly disposed of before Bush launched his war?

Did your GOP crystal ball tell you this? So many of you Repugnants have crystal balls upon which to divine the future.
Sorry, hon, but this is sheer speculation on your part.

The Iraqi gas attacks on the Kurds are irrelevant to the issue of their obligation to disarm which was several years later. No evidence has surfaced that Iraq was in possession of such weaponry at the time Bush made his case for war.

What kind of freedom do you have with the nsa listening to every phone call, random bag searches, tsa putting their hands down your pants and denial of due process when a politician decides to list you as an "enemy combatant".

This is also a very moving rendition of Simon and Garfunkel's "America" performed by David Bowie at the McCartney fundraiser concert after 9/11.

Remember when we were united before Democrats took that away from us too for political gain?

I hope I am wrong but my bet is that president nobama and his AG, holder, will try this as a simple civil crime. After all a crime of terrorism would be incorrect. No acts of terrorism can occur on nobama's watch.

I'd pour water up your nose in a heartbeat if I thought you might have information leading to more mass destruction. Especially if you were already responsible.

Do yourself a favor and wise up...and get some perspective while you're at it.

You're here today simply to get a rise__and you have to rely on your standard fallback crap. You're one sorry ahole.

The Kurds died when? From chem weapons produced where? And given to Saddam by whom?

Oh and by the way babe__no one lies like Arab Muslim's lie__to them it's an art form and a badge of honor. It's the only thing those fks have learned how to do with skill during their entire existence.

I have no problem with terror plots being intercepted that might kill another 3000 - or more - people the next time.

Why on God's green earth would you???

It's the one thing Obama and the Democrats got right. Extending the Patriot Act.

Bush and Rove took care of that by launching "culture wars" as part of their campaign technique.

They carefully picked the issues by which to divide the electorate, such as gay marriage. Or responding to criticism of his Iraq War by saying those who did so were "enabling the enemy".

I'm trying to get some people to at least rethink what caused us to become so initially divided.

But you apparently, like Obama, thrive on it.

You'd have to ask Obama that question.

The Iraq War has ended.
