Yes, the surge has worked to get levels of violence in Iraq to be almost as low as they were before the US invasion. So, two wrongs DO make a right.

If Bush was right, and he was, then then he deserves not only belated acknowledgment of that fact, but active support today, especially in matters of national defense. For that matter, so does John McCain.

You are a robot - pure and simple. Bush supports the military? By being awol? By having five deferrment Cheney at his side? And you support McSame? He had five planes shot out from under him - one or two were stolen planes, too. He only kept it quiet because of his Dad, and the embarrasment to the Navy. McSame also made propoganda films for the Vietcong - how does that support the troops? McSame ame home to an ailing wife - AND LEFT HER for a beer heiress. Hows that for commitment, huh?

Please. Your reverance for an imperial presidency is clear - very clear. The Constitution is only something the GOP glances at when it suits them. Your reverance for this imperial president will be a shame on you and our country. But the GOP always puts party above country - so that much is known.

Victory in Iraq is an illusion. An illusion to allow the oil companies to rape the country and remove its resources. You have wrapped yourself up in a garment partly made of the flag and partly made up of the bible. The flag is weeping at your lack of courage, and Jesus is weeping for you turning away from his teachings. You will have much to answer for, now and in heaven. I truly hope you discover the cure for cancer or something, because God is going to have many issues to discuss with you and your warmongering crowd.

As it seems you don't like our system of government, I suggest you move your ass to Saudi Arabia - they like kings over there. Oh, and take W with you.

Fred: Are you taking your medication? Psychopathology is treatable you know...

A. James: Yes, violence was down before the war, but there were reasons for that. What you fail to mention in your sarcastic comment is, at the very least, Saddam and Sons' torture chambers and rape rooms are gone.

Fred: Are you taking your medication? Psychopathology is treatable you know...

Soooo, instead of discussing the comment, you do what thoughtless nobodies do: throw shit. No thought, no words, no points of view, no arguement - nothing. Just insult. Well, since your idiot in chief has set the ME on fire, I presume you will be heading out to fight the good fight in Iraq then? Oh, You're not. Oh well, how can you cheerlead an illegal invasion and occupation without actually doing your duty? Silly me, you support Bush - AWOL bush. You support Cheney - 5 deferrment Cheney. You support McSame - who lost five planes, two of them stolen from the Navy; and he also made propoganda films for the Vietcong. yep, you are behind the proper group of people alright - all are losers, all are cowards. Yep, we got your number.

A. James: Yes, violence was down before the war, but there were reasons for that. What you fail to mention in your sarcastic comment is, at the very least, Saddam and Sons' torture chambers and rape rooms are gone.

Yep. And they were replaced with OUR torture and rape rooms in Gitmo and elsewhere. Do you idiots ever read? I mean really; Do you ever want to know the truth - or does the truth scare you as much as everything else seems to?

Please try and understand what is happening in your name. It matters to you and your children.

Old Dem talking points never die, regardless of fully documented rebuttals. Actually, the WHOLE ME strategy was brilliant, with known risks.

Since Iraq is a much better venue to fight in than primitive, mountainous Afghanistan, let's get the terrorists to fight there. Check.

Keeping Iraq's huge (and legitimate) wealth out of the hands of the AQ and its supporters is a really good idea. Check.

Stopping SH from bleeding and debasing the Iraqi people is a really good idea. Check.

And so on.

Dear Fred:
I asked you if you were taking your medication. This was tongue in cheek, but it’s relevant. As a whole, approximately 25% of the population suffers from a serious psychopathology of some kind. The prevalence of psychopathology is higher in leftists than the general population. This is well documented, and has been replicated in many ways. Of course these studies are not well-reported in the MSM, but many political scientists know about them. Furthermore, there is a dose-response effect, such that the more extremist the person is, the more likely they will have a psychopathology.

Very often these psychopathologies are some type of thought disorder. For example paranoia is common. Let me show you what I mean, using your own words:

You are a robot - pure and simple.

[Ad hominem attack, irrelevant to the argument, and evidence of gratuitous aggression. There is a a possible rage disorder present]

Bush supports the military? By being awol? By having five deferrment Cheney at his side? And you support McSame? He had five planes shot out from under him - one or two were stolen planes, too. He only kept it quiet because of his Dad, and the embarrasment to the Navy. McSame also made propoganda films for the Vietcong - how does that support the troops? McSame ame home to an ailing wife - AND LEFT HER for a beer heiress. Hows that for commitment, huh?

[Same as above, ad hominem attacks, irrelevant to the argument, and evidence of gratuitous aggression. A rage disorder may be present.

Derailment is present. That is, while each of your comments can be disproved with evidence, your comments are actually irrelevant to your argument. Consciously or not, you have derailed the discussion from factual matters regarding US military and diplomatic strategies into a personal attack on various personalities.]

Please. Your reverance for an imperial presidency is clear - very clear. The Constitution is only something the GOP glances at when it suits them. Your reverance for this imperial president will be a shame on you and our country. But the GOP always puts party above country - so that much is known.

[Derailment again. Your comments are not relevant to Gina’s post.]

Victory in Iraq is an illusion. An illusion to allow the oil companies to rape the country and remove its resources. You have wrapped yourself up in a garment partly made of the flag and partly made up of the bible. The flag is weeping at your lack of courage, and Jesus is weeping for you turning away from his teachings. You will have much to answer for, now and in heaven. I truly hope you discover the cure for cancer or something, because God is going to have many issues to discuss with you and your warmongering crowd.

[There is paranoid thinking here. Paranoid personality disorder is characterized by delusions of reference. Everything that goes on is somehow thought to relate to the person. For example, Fred seems to think that claims of victory in Iraq seems to be designed to confuse him personally. When delusions of reference are present, the person has difficulty thrusting others, because everyone seems to be trying to confuse him. The person is overwhelmed each day my thousands of observed events, all which seem to relate to him.

For example when a paranoid sees a branch fall from a tree, he is certain someone or something must have done it on purpose, in reference to him personally It’s impossible to sort everything all out, and massive distrust and paranoia builds up. The person also usually builds conspiracy theories.

As it seems you don't like our system of government, I suggest you move your ass to Saudi Arabia - they like kings over there. Oh, and take W with you.

[Projection is common in may psychopathologies. At some point, others may have said to the person “love America or leave it.” The person now projects the same accusation toward others.]

[So there you have it Fred. I have two suggestions. (1) Seek treatment. Thought disorders, including derailment, paranoia, constant fear of conspiracies, and delusions of reference are very treatable now. Rage disorders are also very treatable. When treatment is successful, others may not even notice the problem, because the symptoms are so well under control. (2) For your own health, don’t post comments here. Post comments on left-wing websites, where at least some people will agree with you. People on Gina Cobb are not likely to agree with you, which will only exacerbate your rage disorder. Continual rage is bad for your health.]
