I just call them pillocks!
The Neo-cons commiserate with one another and wave their flags of
The pleasure you gain from seeing the deaths of American soldiers is
somewhat disturbing. America, while pursuing its own interests, has saved us
twice from the tyranny of fascist German rule, and the similar threat of
Soviet occupation. Our defence capabilities over the last few decades are
tokenistic without the nato commitments of the US.
I read recently that there are basically two types of US soldier in
Iraq: -- those who believe the Bush/Rumsfeld bullshit and genuinely
want to help build democracy and civic society in the country and
think that's what they're doing -and- those who are there for the
turkey shoot and trophies.
W/r/t the US saving us from "the tyranny of fascist German rule",
we should also remember that the US didn't want to join in WWII
but did so to further its own imperial agenda. Part of the deal was
that Britain handed over the reigns of Empire.
I've not yet met anybody who can prove that the Soviets were planning
to roll their tanks across Europe. I believe much of the Soviet threat
was in large part a response to western threats in the
American-inspired ideological Cold War.
politicians are the excrement of society and should be flushed away after every sitting.
