The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I think I stated this way back at the beginning of the thread. Nobody here gives a rat's ass about helping the iraqi people. You were all on the prowl (you can dig up your own posts if you want to see what you wrote) that Iraq had these weapons and we were gonna die, and it's better to be safe than sorry. Now there are no weapons, so you conveniently swing your opinion around to state that you supported the war because of the poor iraqi people Saddam was killing.

    You didn't care then, you don't care now, stop pretending. Stop changing your reasons. PowerMan can at least be honest. He just wanted someone to get wasted. The rest of you can't even admit that much.
    Look again at my post earlier in this thread. I'm being perfectly honest. I said I'd rather be safe than sorry, and that's exactly what happened.

    I didn't "change my opinion" around on anything. If you want to use the killing of innocent civilians as an argument, I'll talk about the killing of innocents by Saddam as a retort.

    No matter what you say, think, or do, my opinion still stands. So get off of it.

    I don't care. We didn't find wmd, but Sadam was definitely no friend to the US. We also did a good deed in the process.

    I'm curious, are you proud of having kicked some under 5 year old "camel jockey ass"?? Does it make you sleep better? Did it provide some relief from whatever hatred and frustrations that might make you want to see people get killed? Or maybe you think what you see in TV is just make up stuff like what's played on movies and that guns and bombs don't actually kill people or cause unjustified suffering?? Do you only pretend to care or do you actually think on the innocent children that your tax money helped to slaughter?

    Not trying to be an ass, but don't you think life should be respected? Regardless of skin color, religion, etc?

    Folks of extreme bias, lets not exaggerate here. There were some misguided bombs and/or questionable targets that resulted in civilian deaths. Marines didn't go door-to-door with butcher knives looking for children to kill.

    Be civil. I'm leaving this open for now, but if we can't be nice to each other when we disagree, we just won't talk about it.

    Sure, and it's totally acceptable to murder a few because it's "better safe than sorry", isn't it?

    I really am extremely biased towards respecting life and human rights.

    today, there were some poll results taken (in the washington post) that revealed just how misinformed and uneducated people are.

    1 in 4 thinks that hussein used chemical or bioweapons against our troops

    in a separate poll it was found 1 in 3 thinks hussein was responsible for sept 11

    "NO offence man but your people must die"

    A friend of mine who is an Indian hindu had a client tell him this.

    I have no doubt that a large number of people in America are just plain stupid. That's why it was so easy for Saddam to be convicted of 9/11 in the court of public opinion.

    My problem here is how you people that support war can find justifications for killing innocents without any reason strong enough like a direct threath to your borders or lifes. There was no link between 9-11 and Iraq that couldn't be made regarding any other Islamic country, no proofs of danger towards world peace, even ONU inspectors said this. There's nothing.

    I mean, in some cases war is inevitable, but being unavoidable doesn't make it right or justified, it's something that had to be done, like WW2. Now this, and 90% of the military actions iniciated by the USA, had nothing like that. I can only think of oil or possibly some zionist influences in high places in the US government, and as this last hipothesis seems a bit far fetched I'm left with the oil bit. Again, shame on you that are pro war. How can anybody be pro war? Any half decent human been should be anti war, even if he believes in the unavoidability of it and thus knows he has no choice. A decent human been should have grief in his hearth as he aproaches the battle field or watches his tax money being used to kill children, women or men on TV. Eeven with a reason, let alone without one.

    Call me a pacifist. I wear that lable proudly.

    There. That's where I stand on this. Have to sleep, godamned neighbours dog's woke me up 3 times last night and I'm all ****ed up.

    That camel jockey bit is priceless. Speaks volumes about intelligence levels in some people. I can't believe the mods let it pass without locking the thread.

    i let it pass to show how unintelligent that poster is.

    Frankly and unfortunately, i think that there are many people with that attitude and causes me to really worry about the future of our country and way of life.

    As far as intelligent arguements it does not really matter. You just end up repeating the same thing until it degenates.
    But yes I did want a show of force in the middle east.

    I forgot who said it but pacifisism is what led to the rise of the likes of Hitler and other dictators. I think around 6 million jews would disagree with you.

    All this talk of Human rights this and human rights that. What about Saddam why aren;t you complaining about him and his humn rights violations? I'm sorry but you would have to be either extremely stupid or extremely politically biased to believe that America is worse than Iraq in terms of Human rights violations. I'm going to lean towards the latter or the two.

    The U.S. went totally out of its way to reduce collateral damage and it has shown in this war. Less collatoral damage than any war in history.

    No, patriotic natiionalistic fools that support whatever actions government their might endure with the help of a little propaganda is what gets dictators in power.

    Who said I approved Saddam? I didn't like him when your country was giving him weapons to fight Iran and the "Soviet threat" and when you weren't having any problems with your weapons being used to exterminate curds then so although I don't like him now, what morals do you have now ? America?? Well, you still have the death penalty don't you? Who are you to talk about Human rights?

    Sure, it was a very smalll addition to the milllions of deaths your country has already caused in Asian and middle east counties. It was very clean and polished, how nice of you, a few thousand civilian deaths. What's that for millions of oil barrels?

    This is definitely starting to stray into nothing but a pure I Hate America thread.

    Find something else to bitch about.
