"No I DON'T support the current administration,. I don't support the wars, but I also don't support the troops. Uhmmm I reject nationalism. I reject blind patriotism; and uhmm I reject everything that the phrase 'support the troops' in 2011...stands for."
Wow! Okay she does realize that the military doesn't JUST break shit and kill people. Our military also help the countries we end up invading REBUILD. Rebuild their infrastructure...and on OUR dime. Also when a natural disaster hits anywhere it's generally a US military ship or group of ships, or airlift, that's first or among the first to show the fuck up and render aid? No somehow I think that fact has alluded her.
Wait..it gets better.
"...many of the people in the military don't actually know what they're doing. They THINK that they're helping..uh..us. They think that they're protecting their country. Well uhm..I really don't think that's a valid 'excuse' anymore. They should know what they're fighting for, they should know what they're doing. And you know ignorance isn't going to bring someones family member back. Ignorance isn't going to change the fact that since WW2, 90% of the casualties..uhm..in..you know, in U.S. warfare has been unarmed civilians. It's not going to change that. It's not going to change the fact we've killed over a million Iraqi people..."
Sigh..REALLY liberty chick? Do tell. Look at her SOURCES on her video, she lists them below the vid.
Now lets look at a site that repudiates that crap.
Just a quote from that one.
"Glen Reinsford attacks the moral corruption of Iraq Body Count:
- "These ordinary Iraqis were victims of senseless violence. Were they killed by an American bomb or a Saudi suicide bomber? Hint: IraqBodyCount doesn't want you to know."
- "enter IraqBodyCount.net, an anti-war organization that was envisioned even before the Iraq War began, with the heady ambition of documenting each and every victim of American aggression in order to turn public opinion against the action to remove Saddam ... Somewhere along the way, however, the harsh reality began to sink in that America was acting as no other country in history has ever acted to prevent civilian casualties in warfare. As a matter of fact, more American troops have been killed in the conflict than have civilians been killed by Americans. Americans are literally taking casualties to prevent casualties on the part of Iraqi civilians. Though mere mortals might be prompted to reconsider their prejudices at this point, the folks at IraqBodyCount reacted by quietly changing their mission to include the victims of terrorists - the very people that the Americans are trying to stop. Their dubious body-count even includes members of the Iraqi security forces, who are part of the coalition. ... Another big problem with IraqBodyCount's statistics is that it even includes the terrorists themselves. ... In fact, if you .. browse their database, you'll notice that the tables are conspicuously missing a column - the party responsible for each attack. There's a reason for this, as we discovered when we analyzed each incident to answer this question. It turns out that the vast majority of civilian deaths are caused by Islamic terrorists, and that very few are from American bombs and bullets. This is because (unlike the terrorists) the Americans aren't in Iraq to kill civilians. ... In 2006, the number of civilians who died in encounters between the Americans and the terrorists was about four times lower than the number of U.S. troops killed. In short, civilians in Iraq aren't dying from the war. They are being murdered by Islamic terrorists."
Okay there's more to this but let me just interrupt this diatribe to say..what WE'RE fighting for? Honey I don't see YOUR bony ass out on the front lines defending our country. Or "killing unarmed civilians". What's this "we" shit white woman....now I return to the diatribe
"There's no excuse for them to think that they're fighting for our freedoms when the truth is they're fighting for Exxon Mobil and British Petroleum, and Haliburton, and [something] and root, that there's no excuse. they don't have that excuse anymore."
Wow she really is a darling far left moonbat liberal isn't she? there's a little more to this part of it but I'll skip ahead to her second category that people who join the military fall under.
"They're evil. Uhh.that's a large possibility. I mean uhm if you were a serial killer, what better job to have than a job where you chop someones head off and get paid for it. To have a job where you're given a badge of honor..uhm,mm this is true..where you're given a badge of honor..uhm..for uhm..stabbing someone to death. Uhh who did nothing. Uhm..that would be a perfect job. if you were a serial killer, if you loved violence, the perfect place for you to find employment would be the U.S. military. So you're either dumb, you couldn't get a real job, you were backed in a corner, you had to pay child support, you had to join the military to get money. Uhmm..or you're evil., and you realize what you are doing and you like it. "
Holy SHIT! Nope..this bitch doesn't have a superiority complex...NOT AT ALL. Wow! Do any of my many military friends with degrees and MULTIPLE degrees/Ph. D's, in hard sciences, CPA's mathematics and other useful fields of endeavor want to go disabuse her of that notion? No? Don't want to waste your time verbally banging your head against a brick wall? Hmmm................can't say as I blame you my friends. I love the fact she says it's a large "possibility" that some of you are serial killers. Anyone want to raise their hands and admit to killing lots of people for the FUN of it and the power rush involved? No? *sarcasm ON* Come on boys..I know many of you love to kill people for shits and giggles. Admit it! Oh and next time..send me high end electronics as friendship tokens...not body parts and womens/ childrens clothing and jewelry. Okay? Thanks. Doofuses. *sarcasm OFF*
She thinks people join the military to MAKE money? Does she have any concept of how much our lads and lasses in uniform MAKE? Or how they live? Or just how highly educated most of our military is? I doubt it myself.
*chinscratch* Or for that matter..WHY most of you boys and girls join? No...she said at the beginning of this little font of stupidity that she doesn't believe in nationalism or patriotism...so that answers THAT question.
"Or that you realize that what you're doing is wrong and that you're morally compromised. Uh, that's the 3rd option. I believe that a lot of people fall under that option, but you know that's not an excuse either. I'm not going to support your position of being 'morally compromised'...."
*headdesk, headdesk, headdesk*
"I don't like living in a culture where we basically...kiss these peoples asses for joining an organization that has killed over a million innocent people. Uh it doesn't make any sense. To me that's disgusting. And I don't care if you think if this video is offensive I think the fact that someone would join an organization that has killed over a million innocent people simply because they want money, or they want the..the..the glory of having their ass kissed and everyone telling them 'oh thank you so much your a hero'..I think THAT'S offensive. I think that that's wrong. I think thats morally repugnant."
Well at least she's consistent, no?
Sigh..you know what? I love you guys I REALLY do. However I can't sit through and listen to/watch this fecal matter yet again. I feel my IQ dropping rapidly as I sit here and listen to it , so I'm going to stop. You can watch the rest of it on your own. Me? I'm going to shut this dumb shit off and salvage what's left of my higher brain functions, and critical thinking ability.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.
