at some point, shit's gotta stop. what, are we supposed to stay there forever, or just until the oil runs out?
Oh, I tend to agree with the soldier in the article you posted. I'm just saying, for me anyway, it's understandable what some of the guys argue who are the opposite of this kid. I don't get your first sentence either, as far as I know people make the conscious choice to join the military, and the draft has not been active for a long time.

I think he means chose to join the military, but had no choice over where they’d end up (eg in an illegal war fighting for people who don’t appreciate their presence in their country).

I gotcha, but there are tons of people who chose to go to this particular war in the last 5 years. But that's because they are brainwashed. I'm just saying it's a decent point they make. Not that I agree with it.

we're just there til the oil runs out my friends

keep in mind that george bush sr. never implemented a train wreck like what's happening now, because there was no good exit strategy. nothing's changed. so what is the solution, remain there indefinitely, or "cut our losses" and remove our military presence?

everybody should read rolling stone for intelligent war coverage.

looking at the top of my screen at the "jenna + tito, oh really?" picture, tito seriously has a huge noggin, he's like the little brother in "so I married an axe murderer" that the dad calls "head" and says "it has its own weather system" and then the other dude says "quit calling him that, you'll give him a complex" and the dad says "he'll be cryin his eyes out tonight, on his enormous pillow" lmao

sorry for digressing

I don't know if I would consider it cutting edge anymore, but it is definitely informative. I just don't pay much attention to the CD reviews anymore because that's like radio airplay to me, has to do with payola in all its many forms.

Mostly, rolling stone has opened my eyes to the vast and terrifying world of the extreme right. And I like 'random notes' , I won't lie.

This article is BS. There are too many things to list what is wrong with this FICTIONAL article. First and foremost...a Marine or soldier would not be wearing his uniform outside the US on a commercial flight. (Notice how at the end the "writer" wrote he saw the soldier now in "civilian clothes"?) There are many other flat out lies. How do I know? I've been a Marine for 9yrs and have served two tours in the ME, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, in the last 5 yrs.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Especially from biased, left-wing nuts.

Hey stupid, you realize that the US has not used ONE DROP of IRAQI OIL since the war? You do know that right? YOu do realize that OPEC controls the oil and so far the Iraqi Government has sold billions of dollars of oil...to other countries than the U.S.

Why not try actually reading and finding some facts on your own instead of just parrotting left-wing, liberal hippie ***s?

wow, in response to your blatant ignorance, i'll call your information as coming from fundamentalist, theocratic conservatives...

seems like you're just as biased as you say I, and others am...

no need to be a jerk.
