Bosnia was 10 years ago. Different president, different reasons for going in, international support, mission accomplished in a timely manner. You are comparing that to Iraq?

well, in their eyes, it's like your ex-g/f who cheated on you... you'll still accept a BJ, but it doesn't mean she's now gonna be faithful.


Echo and N8 are both right, we should invade where we'll actually do the most good, like Sudan.

Just to be clear I don't think we should invade anywhere, except maybe Canada, so we could have Whistler.

You don't think some situations -- like genocide -- call for immediate and swift action, like invading?

That's awesome. Peaceniks who wouldnh't have been there if your president wasn't an alcoholic, ex drug addicted, war mongering right wing religious fanatic.


Sweet.

Matt Chandler, who graduated from my college a couple of years ago left Iraq for a meeting in the US two days before his CPT team was captured. I talked to him this morning and he was overjoyed that his friends were released although he still mourns Fox who was killed. He is heading back to Iraq to continue his mission soon I can only admire his courage.

Is genocide is OK when it's approved by the president?

If the international community sees an immediate need, then the international community should certainly work together to take care of the problem.

The US government manipulating it's allies and creating false intelligence data doesn't count.

I know, I'm just extremely fed up with our government right now. Sorry :help:
Don't be sorry. It's your right to be fed up, at least until they pass a law saying you can't, then we are all screwed.

It's only a matter of time before a (supreme) court interprets the Patriot Act that way.

Except N8. He'll be quite happy when his rights are all taken away.

You clowns would ruin it in two weeks. It would end up with some sort of roller coster, and then disney would buy it out.

No doubt. But they might be a little smarter. At least they tried making money off of their Indians instead of trying to kill them off. :dead:

No way man! We would liberate all those poor oppressed hotties in the bars and restaurants! We would spread democracy to the trails and stunts! Come on man, you've seen all the great things we're doing in Iraq. How could you not think we would make Whistler a better place! Or maybe you just totally missed the point of my post.

Yeah like Bosnia.
Yeah, sure would suck to have a successful invasion that actually removed a dictator from power and restored peace. Too bad Clinton was a terrible military president.

I can't believe we wasted the resources to 'rescue' these nutjobs...

Shoulda left 'em for their gawd to get them out....
Erm, Wasn't it the SAS who actually rescued them?

Can't leave a serious operation to you trigger happy children...

I do know JTF2 went over to recover Canadian hostages, it was probably a combined op as this is exactly what JTF2 is used for.
