<quoted text>read again that is a statement not a question

don't answer it if you can't handle the the truth

we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

sleep well
Go ahead, backpedal all you want. Syria has no more to do with US freedom and national security than Iraq or Viet Nam did.

"I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, "

So you are saying that the end justifies the means?

That "I, the man" provide you with your livelihood so look the other way rather than deal with how that livelihood is provided?"

In that case, you could say that Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao Tse Tung all could have told theer citizens the same things, couldn't they? Yet we know the truth, that those leaders commited crimes against their own citizens in order to maintain order.

In fact, using the comment quoted above, the leader of Syria could make that same claim "I did what I FELT WAS NECESARY FOR tHe GOOD OF MY COUNTRY, SO DON'T ASK WHAT i DID NOR WHY i DID IT" ...

The USA constitution gives the citizens the right to speak out and the right to vote and the right and the MEANS to have input into the way the government runs the country for a reason .... which is in fact, the "freedoms" you speak of .... and yes, the citizens should have a stake in how those freedoms are "earned" ... if it is at the expense of others then perhaps those "freedoms" are not rightfully ours to have.
Told ya I love you & Tony Franko!! You two guys rock!!!!

I think it was George Bush who when asked about a little Iraqi boy whose face was blown off that yes, toppling Hussein was worth that cost.

I guess from Tally's standpoint dead civilians are just collateral damage.

I know there's some serious discussion about
WORLD AFFAIRS here,
But back to the mundane for a minute..
Can ANYONE help solve my problem..
No matter what I seem to do,
My dog smells!!
Now it isn't a dirty smell,
Just that strong doggie smell most who are familiar
With dogs will recognise,
It's in whatever room she's in, in the car,
Around the house.
I tried a few things, even wash her regularly..
I got Johnsons NO TEARS shampoo so her eyes
Wouldn't sting, but no matter WHAT it seems to
persist! Not her fault of course, she's a dog!!!
I often thought could it come from what she is eating,
Do no' Vet wasn't much help when I asked..
I know that if you give a charcoal (recognised) tablet
To dogs it helps when they break wind,
But... that's not what I'm talking about,
Just wondr if there were similar on the market??
Knowing there are many dog lovers here,
I thought someone might have the answer
AND thanks.
From a dogs standpoint they smell just fine thank you very much.

The shampoo the groomer helps for a while but then a week or so later the beagle goes back to smelling like a dog. Just the beagle, not the mix.

I hate to tell you Grace but I think it's the nature of the individual dog.

If nothing else!

Unfortunately civilians will be collateral damage,always has been always will be it's the nature of war,harsh but it's a fact...

The problem I have with Syria and any of the other Islamic crap holes you don't know who's using what,I said the other day it could have been the rebels using the gas but the west wants to target Assad before the facts were clear.The rebels are made up of all the Islamic nutters you can think off and they are happy to use car bombs,suicide bombs and so on and they don't give a toss who gets killed..
That's why I don't want any Americans and particular British service personnel getting killed for these creatures that don't give one toss about life either way...

Now rant over,anyone for Pims and tennis..xx

El,
Absolutely lovely story about GB and the lamb,
So cute,
You often say' all the cats are gone to their beds now'
I'd love to know, they are so interesting ..
Have they their own beds and do they recognise that
fact?
Thanks Grace...glad you liked!..:)
They do, they all have their own beds, except for Milly
who has her own blanket on the sofa...but funnily enough
last night I had to look twice, as Joe has his bed by the
radiator and who had joined him cuddling up, was MillyMolly
Then I saw Joe washing her little head...she is very tiny and
kitten-like, but in fact is about 14 yrs of age.
Nice of you to show an interest Grace.

If you think you didn't, then show me the post where you explained how "looking at a Map" tells me the politics, the history, the alliances, which country is freind and who is foe, and the role of the various groups and clans, the economic situation, etc etc....
I asked you specifically to explain to me how map shows all those things ...
you can't show me that post because you never wrote it ...
therefore you either ignored the question or you did not understand the question and therefore chose not to answer it ..
DUDE

I THOUGHT YOU WERE DONE WITH THIS

your fixation on "look at a map" indicates your lack of knowlage on what has happened in the region over the last 50 years is extensive

so I say to you again

LOOK AT A MAP

it is a good place for you to start
