    Yeah, it makes Saddam's 10 million dead, including thousands of women, children, and old men gassed to death, and men sent down plastic-shredding machines feet-first seem like a walk in the park.

    You sound like the kind of guy who wanted to surrender to Hitler or Japan when the war got tough.

    The kind of people I admire, however are like this:

    "Sir, the Nazis say we are surrounded on all sides. They say there is no hope for us, that we cannot possibly survive. They say if we don't throw in now, every one of us will die or be captured. What do you say, general?"

    "Tell 'em I say, 'Nuts'." -- Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe

    Where do you get the 10,000,000 dead figure from?? Rush, Savage or Coulter??need to verify that number as it seems pretty fictitious to me.

    Add up the wars he started with Iran, in Kuwait, and inside his own country -- "ethnic cleansing of the 'evil' Kurds" -- and 10 million is a conservative figure.

    In any case, however, are you saying that 10 million makes him a bad guy, but "only" one million makes him "not so bad"??? What the hell are you arguing here??

    Seems that your figures are somewhat disengenuous, and need to be qualified.

    You asked me where the figure comes from. I told you. You don't like it? Fine.

    What's disingenuous about it? Do you think these people would've been targeted if McCain hadn't selfishly been trying to score some political points? They were murdered because of McCain being naive.

    No you didn't. You just said to add up all his wars and that's the number you get. That's a blanket statement.

    Why was McCain being niave? So when PAetraeus walks through markets as he usually does, he's being naive too? Those people were murdered by savages who have zero respect for life, not by McCain's photographer.

    Guns don't kill people, people with guns people.

    I didnt read the posts but if the title of this thread is correct, McCain should be arrested upon his return to the United States. Shame on him for killing 21 people just to get a photo op.

    That's my point Turd. The title is extremely disengenuous.

    I'm sure it will change, but as of this moment the banner beneath each page of posts in this thread is a "McCain 2008" advertisement. Kinda funny, considering the title of the thread.

    Regards,

    You really don't need to ask this question do you? If McCain doesn't try to show the world, "Hey look how safe and normal this place is!" (with boby armor on and a hundred American soldiers protecting him :rolleyes: ) the people who work at the market aren't seen as collaborators. McCain basically signed their death warrant.

    So it's McCain's fault that some nut job murdered innocent people. That's basically what you, and you're headline are stating.

    Again, guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people.

    If you're going to count that way, then Americans have been responsible for many multiples of that number of innocent civilian deaths, if you count our involvements in all our wars over the past 50 years...

    And McCain could've prevented their deaths. Don't go in the first place and none of this happens. But no... McCain is on a mission to prove the world wrong.

    "Don't wear such a suggestive outfit and you won't get raped"


    Same type of argument.

    Mr Delusion, we've already corrected you and your wild exagerrations. You sound a bit Al Gorish with your tact.

    As we've been over before, your previous deceptive figure of one half a million was a proven overestimate...now you are bloating that number to 10 million?? Only, to use the age old red herring against a critic, who did nothing more than question the accuracy of your numbers?

    This may be the way you evangelize, but its a pretty pathetic display of dialogue. 10 million isn't a conservative figure. Its an outlandinsh and easily verifiable untruth. I would be more direct in calling it a LIE. Which would make you a LIAR.

    You do it over and over thinking people are what? Too dumb to notice the bilge you try to pass as fact?

    Your culty followers may buy the junk you have been agressively selling here for oh...what four months now...but I don't. Would the term Shuyster offend you??
