    Yeah, and you and black0989 are the kind of low-class trash that would say something like that.

    I only have an ARCOM, AAM w/OLCs, ASR, SWA ribbon.

    Sorry if that's not good enough for you, but I won't put in for bogus awards like some people have.

    I don't know who you are or where you're from black, but if you really served in the Marines, I will congratulate you on you service...not insult you, even though you took that liberty with me, and you don't even know me. You might be a veteran, and I salute you for that, but you're low class in any case.

    That remark is not cool dude. He did serve his country, did you? Never heard you mention your military service before, but if you did, thanks. I don't know dnf, but from reading his posts, I think him to be a stand up guy, and would welcome him into a duck blind anytime. It is OK to disagree with someone and not resort to mud slinging. That is why WE served, so you could have your opinion.

    Caught a clip of a radio show (not sure who I was listening to) ... a former Israeli soldier (now living in the US for 20 years) called in with a point he caught in Obama's speech (that many might have missed).

    His point was that O referred to "about 4400" US soldiers losing their lives in Iraq. The Israeli said, "It was not about 4,400. It was exactly 4,432."

    Perhaps this shows the difference between a soldier and a politician. To the soldier, every life lost is very important.

    No, typical politician. Obama didn't kill those soldiers. George Bush did. And he did for money. Lest we say the lowest of all common denominators in a politician.

    Bush killed those solders? For the money? What money? Oh, Obama didn't kill any of them either. He just "rounded down" when talking about American lives lost.

    Follow the money trail. Who gained in the War in Iraq? What companies prospered? What politicians were connected to those companies? There was a time when I thought they invaded Iraq for the oil. Then they never took the oil. The only common denominator as the President (Mr Bush) made bad decision after bad decision, was that the US treasury was shrinking rapidly and the coffers of a few corporations were growing astronomically. Connect the dots.

    The numbers of KIA have never been precise for any war. To many MIA, POW's to make #'s exact. Total # of casualties? What's your guess? Here? Now? Then?

    Every COC bears responsibilty, and so do we. Nothing operates without some responsibility, theirs, yours, ours.

    Sometimes, we all lose.

    Come on Gerry....given that the number, unfortunately, is still changing almost daily, I think its better to not speak specifically. If he said "4432", and the number at the end of his speech became 4433, he would catch flack. Well, I guess he did anyway.
