Bring them home from Iraq

Recommended Posts

This should absolutely enrage everyone. The U.S. government and military "leadership" should be so damn ashamed; ashamed that this kind of abuse continues to afflict those that risked their lives in a stupid war that accomplished nothing.

Warriors have to win battles and wars. USA since Vietnam has rules in place that don't allow for victory. Like having only 7 guys on defense

in a football game. The Army (by political force) is now recycling women 3-5 times and giving advance knowledge of Ranger School courses so they

they can pass a few of them. When idiots, like Mike Brown, ordering Dave Shula to start Klinger over Boomer that puts people into therapy. Men can

handle war for the most part, but when returning to 1st World problems and BS they might need some.

Rumsfeld: “Bush 41 is getting up in years and misjudges Bush 43" https://t.co/ussyLnilCp https://t.co/t6DIVXiXvr


"Most of us have been conditioned to regard military combat as exciting and glamorous -- an opportunity for men to prove their competence and courage. Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that that war is criminal or that accepting it is a criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed. War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. Its very nature is one of tragedy and suffering" --Dalai Lama

The Jessica Lynch story. The Pat Tillman story. This story. So many lies.

 

Deception on Capitol Hill

Published: January 15, 1992

 

It's plainly wrong for a member of Congress to collaborate with a public relations firm to produce knowingly deceptive testimony on an important issue. Yet Representative Tom Lantos of California has been caught doing exactly that. His behavior warrants a searching inquiry by the House Ethics Committee.

 

Mr. Lantos is co-chairman of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus. An article last week on The Times's Op-Ed page by John MacArthur, the publisher of Harper's magazine, revealed the identity of a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl who told the caucus that Iraqi soldiers had removed scores of babies from incubators and left them to die.

 

The girl, whose testimony helped build support for the Persian Gulf war, was identified only as "Nayirah," supposedly to protect family members still in Kuwait. Another piece of information was also withheld: that she is not just some Kuwaiti but the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S.
