Point of Order:
Please never refer to the next President of the United States as "Mac". His call sign was "McNasty" and that’s what he goes by. Thank you for your time and attention.

His observation a year later was that by driving people off the roads into ditches, as is the procedure, he concluded, "if someone occupying my country drove me off the road into a ditch here, I'd probably go join an insurgency too..they don't want democracy....they just want to shit and piss in the street and live their f'ed up Haji way of life".

Someone said here recently and best....
If we send our troops into harm's way to do our bidding, we do it with the idea of kicking the grease totally out of the enemy. There is always unforseen consequences and collateral damage/deaths. As terrible and unfortunate as that is, it should never be used as an excuse to go to war without winning it decisively. Troops are there. let them do their job, not powder Iraqi behinds.

Another thing is the incredibly inflated Iraqi civilian casualties numbers. I've heard dimb-bulb lefties try to claim we killed over half a million Iraqi innocent civilians. Funny, since the WHO speculates less then 20% of that bogus number. It's war, bad things happen and it's a terrible price to pay. But the idiots who think we need a "more humane war" are the reason OBL is still alive, Al Qaeda isn't totally destoyed and the war is still on. If we had the monkey off our back and could fight this thing like the great General George Patton would, this war would've been over years ago. Quote me on that."Don't vote. It only encourages the bastards." -PJ O'Roarke

Even though 9/11 could have been prevented by a single 9mm automatic, or even a will to live when told to lay down....if only those Americans had the tools to do what needed to be done.

James Montgomery Flagg did a number of WWI and WWII posters, but that's his masterpiece. He also posed for Uncle Sam himself. It's up there with Norman Rockwell's Four Freedoms and JC Leyendecker's portraits of Patton and MacArthur for war bond drive posters.
What's not widely known is that the government rationing extended to film stock, which is why Hollywood made so many "Why We Fight" type movies, although given the makeup of the entertainment industry at the time, they'd have done a lot of them anyway.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
