      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Iraq

Lowest monthly casualty rate so far and oil production has hit 2.5 mil bbls/ day. The only thing that will let this war turn into "another Vietmam," is if you bitches elect Obama. If he pulls out now... 4000+ Americans have died for nothing.

 

To pull out now can only be seen as one of two things; political maneuvering, or cowering to the pressure of countries like France, Russia and Italy who illegally profitted from illegal oil deals with Saddam.

 

Have a nice day kids

Does the lowest casualty rate also hold true for Iraqi's? That could possibly be considered progress...all the other stat tells me is the yanks are staying in their bases.

Australian

PM pulls all troops out of Iraq: "Every reason we were given for this war was a lie."

 

>4000 dead Americans and hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis sacrificed to lies and greed.

 

War crimes trial for GWB, 2009?

Too late.....and we are not at war....we are occupying another country. Please get it right.

Why do oil prices always seem to start rising soon before an election? Maybe if we could replace the fear of terrorists with the fear of $10/gal gasoline, then the voting public will remain scared enough to elect another arabophobic warlord! :moondance:

Thank you Kevbone! Exactly right.

 

The war has been over for quite some time, it's the occupation that hasn't gone so smoothly. "Occupation" is an ugly word that folks, both in the administration and the citizenry in general, don't want to own up to, but its much more accurate than "Iraq War."

 

 

Oh, and Scott? You are right too. 4000+ Americans have died for nothing.

It wasn't all for nought, Off. Lots of people made a lot of money off the deal and we now have a base in southern Iraq that I bet we don't plan to let go of any time soon even if we do "bring the boys home."

right... just as we did in Germany after outsing another genocidal dictator who invaded his neighbor. Just as we did in Japan. We are still there now.

 

I have it right you sad bunch of armchair quarterbacks. Watch the Iraquis fight the terrorists themselves; with pride. Maybe then you will understand that some real good came out of this.

 

These people are willing to die to help us fight them and can't wait to get in on the action. I am sorry if that doesn't exactly meld with your preconcieved notions of what is going on over there.

That is right... cc.commers only have respect for socialist Western Europeans and defame their heritage, country and their way of life at any opportunity.

 

I remember. I would think his tounge would be tied up if he happened to come accross me and my co-workers.

 

Doubt you would be running your suck about us never leaving the FOB ace...

Patriotic duty is commendable. Fighting along side the Iraqi forces I'm sure you see this often. The ARVN's had it too (well some did). In the end it did not matter. All this really accomplished was empowerment of Iran, waste billions of dollars, and God knows how lives. Oh and before you call me a left wing liberal nut job (and proud of it), I fought in a steaming jungle and in the end it wasn't worth it. Trust me.

What? You couldn't take me yourself?? :rolleyes:

 

Physical threats + internet = lame

 

Anyway the only time I'm going to come across you and your co-workers is next time I get a happy meal.

 

Oh yeah, and here's a recent picture of me:

I dont have to make threats. I am not making one now. I do know that your bravado and your sharp tongue is backed up by nothing more than what you can produce on your keyboard.

 

I have chosen to back up my convictions with everything I have. What have you done with yours sir?

 

You instead, defame those who risk life and limb by calling them cowards. You can come check out my leg and then call me a coward; right before I deploy.

Scott: you yourself are a threat to these fucking losers. You have convictions and have acted on them. They don't and never will.

 

Good luck, man!

Please, it is not even possible to call the enlisted men and women sleeping in body armor (or not...) cowards. They didn't ship themselves to oilistan, our country's most powerful cowards did. And they can't ship themselves out either--it will take more powerful cowards to do that too.
