    I'm old enough to remember Vietnam. So many comparisons.

    Without live video tapes, no one can believe this. If you do, you're beyond cynical. :(

    So glad that Mikey is willing to give the troops that he so earnestly supports the benefit of the doubt.

    We will have to wait for the tape before jumping to any kind of a decision but I do have to point out to the contradictions below:


    "...A U.S. military statement shortly after the November attack described what happened as an ambush on a joint U.S.-Iraqi patrol, with a roadside bombing and subsequent firefight killing 15 civilians, eight insurgents and a U.S. Marine. The statement said the 15 civilians were killed by the blast, a claim the residents strongly denied.

    Residents said there only was a roadside bombing, and all the shooting was done by American troops.

    Time, in a story in this week's edition, reported that a U.S. colonel went to Haditha for a weeklong probe to interview Marines, survivors and doctors at the morgue. The magazine cited unidentified military officials close to the investigation.

    The probe, Time reported, concluded that the civilians were killed by Marines and not a roadside bomb, and that no insurgents appeared to be in the first two houses raided by the Marines.

    The probe found, however, that the deaths were the result of "collateral damage," investigators said..."



    How can the killings in the first two houses be classified as collateral damage if there were no insurgents there?
    If the probe did prove that the initial reports were false, doesn't that at least smell funny?

    I am not sure if a US military probe will come up with anything.

    I think the US military under George Bush has zero credibility.

    Don't take my word for it, go and ask Pat Tillman's parents.

    It is also important to remember that the Vietnam's My Lai massacre's investigation by US military was also a cover-up by the government.

    I am flat against of whatever we call going on in Iraq, but in the fog of it, this type of stuff can and will happen. The unfortunate part of any war is the slaughter of innocents, the difference is that most of the time it is not reported or found out about. I have over time run into a lot of men, who have experience this horror, some from WWII who cannot to this day talk about it.

    The benefit of the doubt? Why, and what has that to do with supporting the troops? How long ago did Pat Tillman die? Throughout history our government and armed services has lied to us, that is a fact. You have to earn the benefit of doubt, and you don't get that by constantly telling lies.

    The left wing liberal media in America will do anything that they think they can get away with to DAMAGE the hated Bush.

    The left wing liberal media is having a very hard time coming to grips with the fact that they no longer CONTROL the news, they can twist, spin and lie as they always did but now there are other outlets that the people can turn to that will give you the "Other Side Of The Story" the side they would prefer you didn't hear.

    The Liberal Media will do everything in their power to FIND news that is unfavorable to the USA and the Hated Bush and that is what you will hear, the good things go unreported.

    Dan Rather publicly whined and blubbered about "the bloggers" sitting home in their pajamas acting like journalists, it was one of these Bloggers that brought the Powerful lying "Rat Face Rather" down, Rather was shown for what he is, a liar and a dishonest Bush Hating left wing sore losing liberal bum.

    Brokaw was smart, he saw what was coming, he headed for his ranch in Montana, he wasn't about to let the Bloggers get him.

    The days of the Walter Cronkites filling you full of their Left Wing Liberal bullsh!t is over, Fox News and the guy in his Pajamas are watching them. :rocker:

    go to hell, Turdball, you fascist pig. Bush has done more cumulative damage to this military than any president in our history. So while you chew on your elitist tax cut (feel good does it?), take a moment to remember the kids coming home with mental trauma and missing limbs. This is why 60 veterans of Iraq are running as DEMOCRATS and only 2 are dumbed down enough to run as REPUBLICANS.

    Your kind of patriotism is best served in a dictatorship. You are a pathetic excuse for an american.

    Why?

    Why is it that BBC and Arab TV has access to this tape and we do not?
    Free press, my arse...

    With the threatening of those in the US media in their coverage of Iraq, what did you expect? A dictatorship has come to america- lead by Cheney, puppeted by Bush, backed by K-Street and evangelicals, and enabled by ignorant sheep like Turdball and Harry Boy.

    The do-gooders that were captured by the Terrorist Muslims are free, Left Wing Sore Losing Bush Hating CBS reported it this is how they covered it, they said "The Hostages Were Freed".

    The Bush Hating Liberal CBS never mentioned the fact that British & American troops rescued the do-gooders when the savages wern't around.

    CBS is full of sh!t.
    If you want to hear the true story go to Fox (Fair & Balanced)

    BUSH GREAT!
    GAS PRICE GOUGING GREAT!
    LYING GREAT!
    STEALING GREAT!
    BREAKING THE LAW GREAT!
    MISUSING OUR MILITARY GREAT!
    THEOCRACY GREAT!
    REPUBLICANS GREAT!

    Please, get a grip. Are you actually going to tell me you think this Administration has done even a GOOD job?

    Right-wing Neo-con ultra-conservative policy IS BAD for our country, unless you believe the constitution is just a stupid piece of paper like our current leader.
