    actually, even if these were his words, kill those yankee`s that torture and those that ordered them tortured.

    Seems a Lomg way from all americans, no? i mean, did every american aplaude the torture? or order it? hell, most i know are really disgruntled about it even happening.

    yeah, i hate peeps that think their life is worth more then that of any other.. well, hate is a strong word, dislike is better.. but to claim that all of us are the same cause some of us misbehave, .. long live polarizaton ,, once again..

    Right, and Saddam had nothing to do with it. He was just an innocent victim. Never mind that he used mustard gas and nerve gas on the Iranians and the Iraqi Kurds. And never mind that he refused to abide by the terms for ending the Gulf War. And never mind that he threw out the UN weapons inspectors. And never mind that he tortured children in front of their parents and had rape rooms in his prisons. And never mind that his two sons ran around murdering people at random just for fun. And never mind that he took ALL the Oil-for-Food money and spent it on palaces while the Iraqi people starved. And never mind that nearly every single Democrat in the House and Senate voted to authorize the use of force before they saw a political advantage in stabbing our troops in the back.

    whodat, how do you manage to convince yourself of so much crap that just isn`t true

    Ollie, yeah, we get it. Saddam was an a$$hole. So are many, many other dictators around the world, but we`re not illegally invading them, are we? The western world was sold a lie that Saddam had WMDs ready to strike us (in the west) at any moment. As it turns out, he didn`t have f*ck all, like the rest of the world was trying to tell us. And yes, my country (the UK) was to blame also, for going along with the bullsh*t.

    p.s. Whodat`s a veteran, with his own opinions having experienced what he`s experienced. I have respect for that. For you, less.

    Gangnam Style Sucks.

    It sucked before I knew anything about his past iniquities, and it sucks now.

    As to his ideology, I agree with the first aspect of his sentiment. We should absolutely not be in the business of torturing people. Not now. Not ever.

    If they are enemy combatants, then let them die on the battle field. If they surrender, then imprison them, but treat them civilly and with respect and if they behave, set them free once hostilities have ceased. If they don`t behave, give them a quick death.

    The second half of his rant I take exception to, but I am sure he doesn`t give a damn.

    "This is just bull$#!+ Democrat slander. It never happened."

    - I`m not saying that the got "knew" what was going to happen when they took Iraq off the List of State Sponsored Terrorists, thereby allowing american chemical companies to sell to Iraq (Reagan tended to turn a blind eye to these things i.e the Contras), but that doesn`t really erase our involvement in the matter.

    Regardless, you can`t deny that Saddam was "the good guy" and helped him as much as we could, until he threatened to increase the price of oil, at which point he became the bad guy, not after it was clear that he was using chemical weapons.

    "Thanks for personally bringing Gangnam Style to America, even after talking poo about us."

    Gangnam Style was brought to America by Americans. Psy made the song mostly for Koreans because Koreans are the main consumers of Korean music. Like any other person, he`s going to profit off his unexpected success elsewhere. Hating our wars and our military presence in other countries doesn`t mean you hate American citizens though. I pretty much agree with him and I`m an American. Only thing I disagree with about the song (which isn`t Psy`s song) is killing family members and such. But if you`re against that, you have to be against our military /too/, because our military has no problems with killing family members of "the enemies" whether or not their actual target is nearby.

    First of all how was the election "corrupt" as you put it?
    Secondly Bush Jr promised restraint as opposed to Clinton`s interventions in Kosovo and Serbia.

    So, just how "responsible" are voters here? With that in mind you Britons should hold just as much responsibility for Tony Blair`s decision to come along for the ride.

    @davymid - Thanks, that`s exactly what I was going to rip OldOllie on. If you didn`t see it with your own eyes you have no room to talk.

    I won`t argue that Saddam was an evil motherf*cker and needed to go. I witnessed first hand what he did to that country and the people. Most of the Iraqis didn`t even want to fight us when we got there, the majority of intel collected from dead insurgents after firefights told us that. The only reason they were loyal to Saddam was out of fear that they and their families would be executed. Personally, the first time I searched a dead body I pulled a Syrian passport out of the guys pocket along with a bottle of what turned out to be methamphetamine pills. We constantly came across abandoned Iraqi army positions where they ditched their weapons & uniforms and tried to blend in with the general public. My problem isn`t that we went there, it`s with the timing. We should have been focusing solely on Al Qaeda in Afghanistan.

    Gerry, Don`t give the europeans all the credit, we were in there as well (the document took a while to download.

    We even trained the Iraqi military in chemical warfare in the 60`s, setting the basis for Saddam`s chemical corp.

    We didn`t give them the complete bomb, but we sure as hell helped them every other way. It`s like, if you and a few of your friends give a convicted all the pieces of a gun, and some bullets, and then act surprised when he puts it all together and robs a bank, and then points the gun at you... then you shoot him

    Davy, that`s just another Democrat lie. The invasion was not in any way, shape, or form "illegal."

    At the end of the first Gulf War, Saddam signed a cease-fire agreement that required him to give up his WMD and cooperate FULLY with international weapons inspectors. He flagrantly violated the terms of that cease-fire agreement, so we were LEGALLY justified in RESUMING the hostilities.

    Besides, if it actually were illegal, why did nearly ALL of the congressional Democrats vote to authorize the use of force, and why did they all support the war up until they saw a cynical political advantage in opposing it?

    Horse$#|+! If only veterans were allowed to have a say in how thing are run, the Democrat party would be extinct. Vets support Republicans by better 2:1, and the last Democrat president with military experience was Jimmy F***ing Carter.

    You`re certainly entitled to your opinion as to the strategies used in the two wars, but don`t tell me I`m not.

    @OldOllie - You`re not. Reading Sun Tzu`s "The Art of War" during bowel movements and not having any military experience means your "opinions & strategies" are about as useful as a football bat to me. The last Republican president with military experience was George HW Bush. (Dubya doesn`t count for obvious reasons because he was a total f*ck up) For the record, while I personally feel that in order to be qualified to run for president military service should be mandatory, I`m sure that would never happen. Their Joint Chiefs of Staff are the ones who communicate with the POtUS to make strategic decisions but when you have a f*cking retard like Dubya sitting in the Oval Office that doesn`t really help.

    When we heard we were going into Iraq EVERYONE in my unit, from the boots fresh out of SOI, up to our CO were in utter disbelief. Getting involved in a two front war usually isn`t a very smart move. I`m sure you can think of some examples.

    I`m afraid not. I didn`t participate in the corrupt joke of a political system that places these liars and warmongers in positions of power where they get to start wars that have no popular support, even though those that start them claim to be representing the public.

    Also, I`m going to have to cite ad hominem tu quoque. Again. It`s fast becoming the equivalent of Godwins Law for a substantial number of the dumber Americans on this site. As I`ve said before and will say again as many times as I need to: other countries doing `X` doesn`t make it OK for America to do the same. You just sound dumber and dumber each time you try to negate criticism of America by trotting out that tired , pathetic, risible argument each time someone criticises your country and its actions.

    First of all, these lyrics are specifically about certain people in the US army who were committing horrible acts of torture. Being against torture is not anti-American and disagreeing with the Iraqi war does not necessarily mean that you disagree with every war the US has ever been involved in, so bringing up the Korean war or WW2 is irrelevant . Secondly, the song is by a Korean metal group, not Psy, this is actually stated in the article for anyone literate enough to read the full story instead of a few words written on top of a picture.

    @paddy215 Its about certain people, yes, but also their mothers, daughters and families dying a slow and painful death. Saying you disagree with torture is one thing. Saying you want to torture to death the families of someone who committed torture is the exact opposite. It actually says you support torture, just for your own purpose and satisfaction. He`s not saying torture is wrong, he`s saying torture of innocents is an acceptable means of revenge.

    And also, you can`t sing the song in a concert and then say you disagree with its meaning. It not being his song is just another verification of his belief in its message.

    If you voted then, unfortunately, yes YOU did! If you didn`t vote for Blair then there`s no guilt. Furthermore voting for someone based on a particular platform is no guarantee they`ll stick to it. Hence Bush`s "compassionate conservatism" and Obama`s "promise" to keep us out of further engagements. Both similiar promises both of them broken irrespective of political party.

    I see most IABers hate America too. South Korea can take care itself. So can Europe. Let`s stop subsidizing their defense with American service people. They don`t appreciate it.

    though I get your overall point I guess, I find that specific one irrelevant.
    Well, you`re young, and you probably had a crap unionized public school education, so let me explain. Had the US not entered WW II, there was no one who could stop Japan from conquering and colonizing the entire western Pacific Rim including Australia. They would have been occupied, subjugated, and assimilated. By now, very few people under age 60 would even be able to speak English.

    Is that relevant enough for you?
