    I really like Mad TV, and yeah I do laugh. However, it is tragic that such funny comedy stems from such short sighted liberalism. Most whiny hippies will look at this and think the analogy sums it all up into one neat little package. When really all it does is grossly oversimplify the problem. I find it most funny that it is liberalism that is making Iraq more difficult in the first place.

    "That was brilliantly funny! And if it is liberal to be against the war . . . that means that the vast majority of the US and also the rest of the world is liberal I guess!"

    Wrong. The liberal media is very good about telling you what to think about the war. And dumb people just take their word for it. I have been over there a number of times and it is not nearly as bad as they would have you believe. Plus, there are many, many wonderful things we are showing the people of Iraq that the Liberal media will never cover because it hurts their agenda. It may SEEM that most of the world is against the War, but that is simply not true. However, those that are against the war are much more outspoken, therefor it would seem that they are in the majority. Those that do not have a problem with the War are content and much less outspoken. Why would I protest? Bottom line is, if we pull out then we embolden our enemies and kill more troops. It will forever discredit America even furthe

    I dare you to name any other country in the world where there a more suicide/car bombings per day....and my definition of "not nearly as bad" starts with a place where there are no bombings on a daily basis...

    "...Plus, there are many, many wonderful things we are showing the people of Iraq ...."

    Like what ?...after bombing the sh¡t out of the country you are showing them how to rebuilt the country??

    This is not propaganda people, I was actually a part of some of these things that have been happening since the begining.

    The bombings are localized and a large problem. That is not in dispute. Running away is not going to make the killing stop. There are parts of Africa right now that the entire world ignore that are going through genocide. There are more deaths per 200,000 people in Washington D.C. than in Iraq right now. Get a grip my friends.

    that was funny. not sure how you don`t get it as soon as he says iRack. But then I must be smarter than a lot of you.
    all neo-cons know how to do is to try and discredit crtics by throwing out names like `liberal`.
    Ameirca has already been discredited and that was done by an administration who refused to use reason and intelligence in making decisions.
    Im a Teddy Roosevelt style Republican. There was a day when Republicans used to be reasonaable, kept corporations in check instead of being kept in check by them, and made ratinal decisions. NO longer. The neo cons have taken over.

    "This is not propaganda people, I was actually a part of some of these things that have been happening since the begining."

    Oh now I see, YOU were part of it, than it must be OK.

    Africa and washington are disputes between people of the same country and can in no way be used as a comparison for the situation in iraq.

    The situation in iraq is created by the coalition forces present in iraq, they have turned the middle east in a recruting camp for terrorists; All terrorist groups use the invasion of iraq as propaganda to recrute, and who can blame them?
    What would the US do if Iran invaded Canada or Mexico, because they thought of it as a threat to Islamic way of life (just an example)?

    I know that pulling out is not an option, because they should finish what they`ve started but please don`t say that things are not as bad as them seem, they`re worse.

    It seems that you just want to argue for arguments sake. Good for you. Every war comes with its complications. If you expect there to be no complications then you are simply unrealistic. If it were not the insurgency then I am sure it would be something else. Instead, you seem to think that complaining about it instead of working the problem logically is going to solve matters. And NO, because I have been there does not mean that it MUST be OK. Everyone should question the validity of what others say. If we did not as a people then we would not be free. But, come up with valid solutions instead of complaining that there is a problem. We already know there is a problem. Also, give credit where credit is due. If you are going to site what we have done wrong in Iraq, be sure to also site what we have done right because there are just as many if not more things. How about a little bit of objectivity?

    kevinz^ You know it won`t happen why bother? Besides, it`s fun sometimes.

    Splurbyburbl is the person that knows what he is talking about. Almost all of the horrible things you hear about the war someone just said that was the way it was. They probably had no stats or proof. Thus is the way of liberals` lives - promote their blatant lies to those who are not smart enough to think for themselves.

    So, agreeing with the media is not thinking for oneself? How about this: if the media reported the `good things`, you would be in agreement with the media, and thus, not thinking for yourselves. But, you haven`t changed what you thought, so how can this be?

    I`ll tell you: to blame the media is a convenient excuse for condemning people for being against something that you happen to believe is okay. It`s a cop-out and an invalid argument. One that is not very original either, so why don`t you all think for yourselves and create valid arguments instead of blindly following the `don`t believe the media` sheep?

    I don`t support the war, but to me, there is no doubt in my mind that we are only presented with the bad side of the news. As they say: Dog bites man is no news, man bites dog is.

    NyQ

    Again this is a great example of taking from everything said and oversimplifying a problem to try to validate an argument. Agreeing with the media is not necessarily "not thinking for oneself". It is perfectly OK to agree with anything you want to hear, but it does not necessarily mean it is true. The point is that people should not just blindly follow what they are told. If you were investing in a home you wouldn`t just take the sellers` word for it that there are no termites... you would investigate it in order to make an informed decision. Well, as an American Citizen we have an investment in our lives... that is our Government. We, as voters, have a right and an obligation to make informed decisions, not just blindly follow along with what we are told. So, your argument is moot and just plain argumentative... not logical. Don`t change your mind, change your thinking process. The term for it is Neuroplasticity.

    It isn`t that it is a bad thing to watch the news, it`s that people see it and use it as fact, solely because they saw it on the news. This is what splurby called blindly following - that`s what it is.

    And just because you have some facts doesn`t mean you have the truth. That`s what happens when they focus on the bad, you don`t get the whole story.

    "thats not am american thing ive only ever herd about 4 people ever say it that way and i corrected them."
    Everyone around here says `eye-rack` except like, three or four people I know, myself included. Only recently have people been saying otherwise.
    It bothers me when they say it that way... especially my history teacher. He says it all twangy like.

    I saw this on TV and couldn`t stop laughing. Michael McDonald is my favorite. I guess this was so funny to me because I have negative views on the "War on terror," and being a computer geek I find anything to do with making fun of computer legends funny.

    "So why, in your opinion, did the US invade Iraq?"

    To answer your question: First, we did not INVADE anyone. We went into Iraq to oust a lunatic ruler who would rather kill his own people than cooperate with the free world. Intelligence at the time said they had WMD`s... We never found any. That would not be the first time intelligence was wrong. However, WMD`s aside, Sadam`s sadistic dictatorship would be enough reason to go in. Also, military leaders ALWAYS new that it would be this difficult. The ignorant American masses demanded a time limit be put on the war. What people apparently do not understand is that you can never put a time limit on anything so massive. War is not surgical... nothing is gaurunteed. It takes quite an effort to rebuild a destabalized country. The factt hat our own nation is not behind the war effort means we will not succeed. More to follow...

    What is really sick is that everyone complains that over 3000 troops have been killed in Iraq. That is a number we should all be celbrating. That is a victory of technology and superior medical care (and strategy) at work. 20 Years ago it would have been in the tens of thousands. Also, I find it sick and disheartening that all the people that want to pull out of Iraq will do so for the wrong reasons. If we pull out, not only will we tall the rest of the world, "America will fight a war for a few years and then retreat" (which will embolden our enemies and therefor kill more troops.) but, you will also take ALL the support away from the citizens of Iraq thus leaving them virtually defensless to their enemies. We went into Iraq to fight for those who could not fight for themselves... we gave the weak a voice and if we stick, then it will get stronger. I believe the French did the same for us in the Revolutionary War...

    Unfunny, and it really could have been. And the idea behind conservative and liberal is liberal is more socialist (big government), conservative is more capitalist (big business). Those who want to get out of Iraq just because their party wants it are sheep. But that aside, we should get out of it because we`re hurting both our country and theirs at the present time.

    Splurby: First, look up the definition. It WAS an invasion. Secondly, the reason for invading Iraq, the whole argument the US put forward at the time, was entirely to do with WMDs and not Saddam`s regime. The `evidence` for WMDs was so wrong that it went beyond incompetence. It eventually became clear it had all been fabricated or twisted (the debacle which forced Colin Powell, who had presented the evidence to the UN, to resign).
    Thirdly, am I the only one who considers the 50,000+ civilian deaths so far more of a tragedy than the 3,000+ US troops? I don`t see any cause to celebrate. "We went into Iraq to fight for those who could not fight for themselves" - good job so far.

    The US did not invade Iraq to liberate it. (If human rights were the issue, why are they now eyeing up Iran, rather than DR Congo, Sierra Leone, the Sudan, North Korea, Cambodia...) The original excuse was WMDs, and talk of liberation came next when that didn`t wash. The liberal media aren`t the o

    The problem with being an activist is that an activist is, in affect, a fanatic and cannot be taught. Of course, there are always exceptions, but generally speaking, an activist refuses to listen to the reason of the other side. I am not an activist and I am capable of learning. I will listen to you if you have logic to present to me. So, given what I just said and what you have said, and all the debates, etc. All this still does not provide answers. However, I will tell you that whatever the reason for us to be in Iraq right now is, the answer is NOT to retreat. We can fight in a different direction, but retreat we should not. Personally I think we should respond to terrorism in the most brutal way possible, keep the media out of it and let the bodies speak for themselves. But it will never happen. What do you think we should do Dumaspere?

    hmmmm...`embolden our enemies` huh?

    Sounds like someone is regurgitating information from highly reliable sources.

    I`ll stick with the news, thanks.

    Again, I don`t know where you are getting all of this information. The way you have spun things, the ONLY way one could make an informed decision is if (s)he were actually present for each event necessary to make such a decision. You got your information somewhere as well. Only you are too proud to admit that your sources have their own agenda as well.

    Furthermore, I am very trusting in a media that looks at the government in the most critical light. Nothing a government does can be scrutinized too much. If we can look at our government in the most unfavorable light, then we are more apt to make changes. If everything is going `okay` then there is little room for improvement.

    Go chant your `liberal media=devil` bs elsewhere. Take it up with the media and make a change if you`re so concerned about it.

    You cannot possibly have an objective thought process if you act out on your emmotions. Lashing out at me does not help you at all. It does not matter where you hear wisdom, so long as you are wise enough yourself to discover the validity of it. So, I have heard a few voices out there, everyone does at some time or another. I didn`t just take their word for it, I sought out the validity of it and found what I found, simple as that. I am allowed to be wrong, in fact I hope I am. That is how I learn. But explaining myself to you really does not matter huh? You would rather I fight with you right?

    There was no lashing out there. You confuse impassioned with emotional.

    What you seem to be saying is that because I agree with the media, that I am being misled. You assume because I agree with the media that I do not `discover the validity` of the reports. How can you reconcile your "make up your own mind" position with your "the media is wrong" position?

    You have made a lot of assumptions that support you. Primarily, that one`s decision to be opposed to this war is spoon fed to them by the media and that they blindly follow. Is it not possible that one`s opinion is both informed AND opposed to the war? Of course it is. How, then, can you generally accuse those opposed of being led in their opinions?

    All of this is particularly ironic, Marine, because they are those in the military who are bound and expected to follow orders without question. You, sir, are the epitome of `sheep.`

    And I don`t need you to explain yourself. I am simply tearing apart your initial `lashing out` against liberalism. If you recall, it was you who started the accusations flying with crazy, regurgitated arguments that have been fed to you by your Commanders.

    `Embolden our enemies.` I can`t believe you actually wrote that. If you are going to vomit up old rhetoric, at least disguise it in your own words so it`s not so obvious. You sound like a turntable playing the broken Bush record.

    I can`t believe you hold yourself out as being able to read. The central argument here is not one of when/how we should leave, but rather what constitutes an accurate depiction of the state of things in the Middle East.

    And, by the way, the not-so-radical Islamists don`t care for us so much any more either.

    Furthermore, one can disagree with the war without proposing a premature withdrawal. What`s egregious here is the pretenses under which we obligated ourselves to this farce. And why don`t you come a little more specific with your accusations than "you people"?

    Have a seat and continue to spectate. Your time in creating a profile so you could post was time you could have spent being significantly more productive. Time you could have spent learning how to discern an argument from a passing statement, since you seem to have completely missed the point in these back-and-forth posts.

    It took me a while to get it, but only due to the American pronouciation of Iraq. Seriously, that`s odd. I`m going to check how it`s actualy pronounced. "EE-rawq" NOT EYE RAK.

    Also, technically, it was an invasion. I`m pleased that you are in such a dangerous proffesion, hopefully there will be less of your type in a short period of time.

Your`re right. we should have never gone blah, blah blah. Lots of Muslims like us very much and appreciate what we do. Most are afraid. Its the few loony, loud, extremists that really hate us. Those people will stand up one day and say enough, and the extremists will be stamped out.

    Let me clue you in to something, old man: all debates here are useless. Few of us believe otherwise.

    However, the overall debate of why we ended up there is absolutely relevant today. The people who authorized the use of military force continue in office. Wouldn`t you like to know what your congressperson knew when they authorized Bush to commit our military? It`s called accountability.

    And because someone likes to "hear themselves " does not render an argument invalid. You`re skills in arguing seem to be lacking.

    You are absolutely right NyQ, I abused the term "Liberal". I should not have done that. The truth of the matter, labels are self-defeating. To hold allegiance to one group I just may shun another for their belief structure which further brings me closer to being a fanatic. My main point in all this debating is simply that we should not retreat no matter the reason we went there in the first place. However, I disagree with you on the whole idea that I am just another sheep. I have a Sergeant Major right now that is a complete Republican lunatic. Which tells me you cannot debate with the man without him getting emmotional about it and taking it personal. I call that unteachable. BTW Orson Scott Card has a new book titled EMPIRE. It covers a lot of this stuff and is a simple and good read.

    First, NyQ, I would suggest you just stop talking because you have not made a valid point yet, and you`re clearly just trying to tear down splurby.

    Second, I am not a disciple of the liberal media since the only news related sources I frequent are NPR and the Daily Show. I`m actually confused at how you perceive the media as "liberal". Most of it is very conservative, if it doesn`t just report on the newest celebrity death/scandal.
    With that aside...

    It`s pure fact that we erroneously invaded Iraq, but that doesn`t matter anymore. We can`t change that. What matters is that we`re still in Iraq, years after we announced "Mission Accomplished". I understand completely that simply leaving Iraq would be a bad idea. The problem is that there`s no foreseeable point in the near OR distant future when US troops will ever leave. This leads people to draw connections to Vietnam and hope that the government can learn from the mistakes of the past before 30 years of con

    I hope every last one of you leftist idiots are pleased with yourselves for making such "intelligent" humor out of a serious matter. People are dying over in Iraq to protect the Iraqi people, as well as us in some respects, and for what? So your freedom to make fun of it is protected? Yes, why don`t we all just sit around laughing at "chimp" or "shrub" with our thumbs up our asses and slow bleed the troops. We can sit around and revel in the idea that there are no WMDs instead of actually doing something to win the war and bring the troops home AFTER Iraq is stable.

    I also hope you will be pleased when Iran obtains nuclear weapons, despite "peaceful diplomacy" (i.e. limpdick political sanctions that are never even carried out) failing miserably. When major Western cities get nuked, I hope that all this Defeatocrat "humor" will give you a chuckle.

    "Furthermore, I am very trusting in a media that looks at the government in the most critical light."

    You are an idiot. Just because somebody is very critical of the government doesn`t mean they aren`t full of it. Do you by chance wear a tin-foil hat? Don`t worry, the government is looking into things to get past those, you`ll be back under control within the next few months.

    "If we can look at our government in the most unfavorable light, then we are more apt to make changes."

    Like what? Democrats have control of Congress, why are they letting Bush continue? Non-binding resolutions? Sounds to me like they are giving Bush just enough rope to hang himself. If the war fails, the Dems "told him so". If the war finishes successfully, then the Dems "were the focal turning point". This is a political war. They`ll let the war continue so that hate propaganda will push out more voters.

    Oh, those "leftist idiots" are at it again. How dare they poke fun at the bad decisions being made by our President. They should definately just sit around with sticks up their asses to please extreme right-wing non-nice individuals like you.

    Seriously, Maelstrom, shut up. If you want to give your opinion, give it. But there`s no need to bash anyone. If it gives you some sort of pleasure to put down people that you don`t even know, that`s pretty sad.

    Yup, Bush jokes are pretty much cliche these days.

    Also, the easiest way to not take things personal from anyones post is to not add inflection to what you read. Malestrom, thanks for defending me but I really don`t want people to fight over things that have no solution. We can all debate until we are blue in the face, but why can`t we just debate to learn? Not play king of the hill and try to be on top. We can leave the smearing to the idiots (both Dems and Reps) running for President.

    It`s too bad we all can`t get along. It would be nice if everyone with an opinion would realise that you`ll never change your opponent`s mind.

    That said, I say we place the blame for the current world situation where it belongs: on the government, the military-industrial complex, the media, the modern school system, and people who are too stupid to notice they are being brainwashed. Thanks a lot you morons.

    The minute you believe something told to you by someone in power is the minute you lose all right to bitch about the state of the world. So shuddup.

    I wasn`t actually defending you, splurby; I disagreed with almost everything you said. I just hate seeing people mistake passionate with emotional, and argument with quarrel. There is a plethora of great and completely valid arguments on the internet that are ignored because the entry has poor spelling and grammar, or bashes an opposing viewpoint.

    I thought that was very very funny. Usually I hate MadTV but this was pretty clever.

    This `liberal` media that only shows that faults of the war is also the same `liberal` media that told us the Iraqis were untamed people prior to the war. They are human beings as well. Why can`t the US just treat them with respect.

    "I received information that there were lots of guns in your house and that you were maybe going to use them... I broke into your house to confiscate these weapons yet found none... while I was there I decide that you have been living your life completely wrong so I, take it upon my humble self, to teach you and rebuild you to be a `good` person like me. I`m not going to leave your house untill you are as moral as me."

    Wouldn`t you hate me as well?
