The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Platoon defies orders in Iraq
    http://www.armytimes.com/story.php?f...925-453911.php

    "A 17-member Army Reserve platoon with troops from Jackson, Miss., and around the Southeast deployed to Iraq is under arrest for refusing a “suicide mission” to deliver fuel, the troops’ relatives said Thursday"

    Platoon, not unit. "suicide mission"? If you had read it from an unbiased columnist you'd know they didn't do it because of the heavy attacks in that area and they didn't have armored plating in their vehicles. Why read from abc when they've given alot more money to the Kerry campaign than Bush? For unbiased information?

    According to one of the relatives of the soldiers they had on TV a few days ago, some of them are being processed for a general discharge from the Army.
    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.

    [QUOTE=MixmasterNash]Yes. Why has it taken half a year to figure this out? I'll tell you why. The Whitehouse refused to allow the military to do it. They pulled the marines out when they were on the brink of success and sent in a CIA-trained brigade led by former Republican Guard generals. The Fallujah Brigade promptly gave away all of their weapons and vehicles to the insurgents, and disappeared.[QUOTE]

    yes, and that pisses me off to the fullest. Liberals have the history of ****ing up everything during wars though. That's why I hate Kerry (1 of the MANY reasons).

    However, I do agree with you on the fact that we could've pulverized insurgents in Fallujah and other places by now if we'd attacked and not talked with anyone (insurgents).

    Hope Kerry doesn't get elected. He'll probably start encouraging the insurgents like he did the viet cong. Don't think he didn't. Ask some of the POW'S the got back to the states about that.

    Ironically, it was the Bush administration that pulled the marines out, not those damned 'liberals'. Unless you consider Bush to really be liberal because of his 'neo-conservative' leanings, this post makes no sense.

    hmm.....


    http://www.sftt.org/cgi-bin/csNews/c...07050787603646

    An officer in Iraq who has asked to remain anonymous says: “The establishment here wants to present the picture that everything is A-OK when it’s too often not the case. Soldiers shouldn’t be punished or made to feel like they’re disloyal, not part of the team, troublemakers, whiners, dissenters, malcontents, etc., etc., just because they give somebody a true sitrep on certain things going on over here. But sadly this is the case.”

    Then there’s the personal attack on anyone with a point of view that’s different from the party line: You’re un-American; or you’re supporting the enemy or not supporting the troops. The latest tactic is to say you’re sending out mixed messages that hurt troop morale.


    But according to our soldiers in Iraq, this is just not true. They say their morale is in the toilet because of how badly the war’s been handled, not because of what’s being reported or debated by politicians.


    “I resent the fascist-style approach that tries to paint any objection of current policy as traitorous,” says Ken Druhut. “I am a proud vet and gratefully enjoy the freedoms that our military has provided. But this Gestapo stuff has to stop.”



    Amen.

    Here's a hint: the President is not a Democrat, not a liberal, and not a rational thinker (by his own analysis). His job description includes the phrase 'Commander-in-Chief.' He is responsible both morally and specifically for the disaster in Fallujah. Therefore neither a liberal, nor a democrat is responsible for the military's actions, by simple logical deduction.

    There is no other explanation.

    i dont consider bush to be a "true" conservative. I really dont know how to describe his stance on most things. Then again my view on conservative stances differ a lot from most peoples. In my opinion a true conservative would have mostly libertarian views and ideals. For instance, there are liberal ideas that i consider truly conservative. For instance, pro choice and gay marriage. IMO, a conservative approach for the gov't, would be to be unintrusive and stay out of personal decisions. I dont reallt even know why i typed all this, its all pretty off subject. lol

    I'm gonna have to disagree with you Nash.

    The president is neither conservative nor republican.

    the true repubs and conservatives (incl: Joey Scarborough, John Eisenhower, Bob Barr and Pat Buchanan) stopped supporting him months back, specifically because he's neither conservative nor a republican.

    I didn't say Liberals did that, I was talking about their poor handling of the Vietnam war. Maybe I wasn't clear enough but the post is still true.

    What don't you get about the fact that the civilian leadership ordered the Marines out of Fallujah before they finished their mission?

    i agree with a lot of your opinions, but it is totally his responsibiliyy good or bad. When your in a position of power, all decisions made of people appointed under you are your responsibility. This is true in politics, military, gov, and any company ect that you will work for.

    Really?

    I'll just let you pull information from nowhere rather then...I have to really hold back.

    Why is Fallujah a disaster?

    The military should be given the green light to do their job. Don't even deny that in WWII there were whinning no Libs who still did not want the U.S to get involved . The military is for fighting wars not for showing turn off the cameras and allow it to perform its job rather then to critize everything they do.

    p.s Please don't take it personal, its just makes me a bit frustrated.

    Um, no. Traditionally conservatives in this country have had a platform of non-involvement in foreign affairs outside of our hemisphere. Well, up until the Communist containment doctrine that got us involved in Korea and Vietnam.

    This particular conservative ideology came up again relatively recently. Whether you agree with the action or not, look at the conservative flack Clintion had to put up with when he put our boys on the ground in Bosnia and Somila.

    If you'd look at the link Nash posted it's from the Armytimes. Not ABC. The Armytimes is hardly a left-leaning news source.
