Colin Powell quoted regarding the Guard after ODS:

"Then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Colin Powell stated
shortly after the war that it "...could have not been fought without the
Guard".

Of course not. It was being fought on the cheap and there weren't enough
regular troops to do the job and so the guard had to be called in .It is still
being fought on the cheap and we still don't have Iraq under control.

We're still deployed in Germany, Korea, Colombia, Bolivia,
and the Sinai, etc...

We are out of control then, right?

Freedom costs money, and lives. Without it we would have someone like
Sadaam's son's shooting us and raping our relatives just for fun.

If you have a problem with freedom, then vote Democrat, and join the
Communist goal of serfdom.

We marched into Germany and got the entire country under control in about 15
minutes. Why can't we get Iraq under control? What thehell is going on here ?


Never heard of the Berlin wall, or the Warsaw Pact eh?

If you can't tell me why we are still deployed in Germany, I can't really educate
you as to why we are still in Iraq, and will be for at least 30 years. Iraq is more
important than just about any other country we have forces in. I suspect we will
have forces in Iraq long after everyone in this newsgroup is dead.

Until we get the last drop of oil. Then they can burn in hell.


Right now Freedom runs on oil. We tried nuclear, and bio-fuels, and
until we get a Congress willing to go Hydrogen in 10 years, (instead of
another wasted trip to the Moon, or Mar's), then we will all burn in hell.

We have an energy policy that is based on depletion. Any student of
economy can tell you that depletion of a resource is a bad thing, and
our $7 Trillion debt is just peanuts as to where we will be in 10 years
with the tax and spend Communists we have in Congress.

Kerry is to the left of Socialism. We call that space Communism where
I live. The Communists destroyed Russia and Eastern Europe, and they
are destroying North America.

Hmm, really? Now I'm beginning to believe you may not know much about events in
*your* time either....
