Al - Zarquai Killed in Iraq!!!
- 06-10-2006, 11:24 PM
Im glad this Zarqawi's mother****er got what was coming to him, after the atrocities he's commited. What you don't hear in the news is how some women and children also died in the bombing that took him out, and that's sad.
Honestly, to destroy this man I understand some civilian casualties were acceptable to our military commanders...but as the casualties keep mounting on both sides - with no end in sight - its just kind of heartbreaking.
I want these al-queda *****es dead as much as anyone, but like mentioned in previous posts, the cause of such violent religious fanaticism needs to be addressed as well, it has no place in modern culture. Hopefully, what the US is doing now will pan out in the long run and in a couple decades Iraq will be a central point of commerce and peaceful democracy in the middle east. A damn shame how much blood is going to be spilled before that happens though. But then again, I cant think of one great nation that hasent been founded on a multitude of senseless human carnage.

You also have crazy women sending scott petersen there soiled undies.
And democrats and republicans should stand and rejoice together that this prick is dead, that Hussains sons are dead, that hussian is rotting in jail, that Bin laden will hopefully be dead soon. Fight politics over the deficit, taxes, health care etc not our security.
And Mullet, your theory that why kill Zarquai, becuase only someone else will step in his place and threaten the same lives doesnt hold water. Then why go after Bin Laden? Why go after any terrorist, especially if they are a leader then? It is a big deal to kill these people. That just isnt true that no damage is done to them when the top level people get killed and are no more. It can send them into disarray, even for a small period of time, enough time to destroy them even more. This killing of Zarquai led to even more intelligence on there operations.

I do agree. I just find the situation a bit odd. The guy deserved what he got, and now everyone who was using his at large status as some kind of evidence of ineffectiveness in Iraq is now playing down his death as nothing big. I find the double standard interesting. I don't think Iraq is a good situation, don't get me wrong. If we are successful there it may end up being a good thing, but I personally think we'll have to be there 20 years easily to be succesful, and I doubt that will happen. I think the place will fall apart shortly after the first major US troop withdrawals.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier
Good point.You say I should step forward for a second and view the details. Yet, ironically, the current administration used this same logic as they convinced the American public to focus on the one seemingly focal detail of the war in Iraq, that Osama Bin Laden had some connection with Sadaam Hussein. I personally think the time to fixate on details has long passed. If more Americans had a complete understanding of how their vulnerablitity and intense feelings of the need for retribution were taken advantage of to justify an unjust war, I believe they would focus far more on the bigger picture as well
I agree.I want to reiterate that I am not trying to dimish the sense of relief and satisfaction that the families of his victims may feel, nor imply in any sense that his death means nothing. I just feel that his death should be viewed as a small moral victory. Viewing it as any more, or focusing too much importance on it will do nothing but perpetuate the situation.

I was only pointing out the lack of deterance that this one kill is likely to provide doesn't take away from the point that he deserved to die.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier

Oh exactly, and I truly was never trying to dispute that. He deserved to die 100%. My point was always on the larger socio-political scale, never on the front of personal accountablity and retribution. Though seemingly all of my comments were taken that way.Originally Posted by CDB

This is just one big waste of breathe. But that is what the internet is for. lol
It is very simple. The killing of Al Qaeda's poster boy is a stunning political, military and intelligence victory for the good guys.
But the Dems, the lefties and America haters cannot stand the fact that America under Bush, is winning.
So therefore, they put on the usual dog and pony show, to snatch defeat from the jaw of victory. Just because it is a tracherous and despicable thing to do, never stops them. So what else is new?
Who gives a sh1t about 1 jihad, 2 jihad, big jihad, little jihad, or great jihad? There are all mad dog howling. You can go hide under the desk, but like they said,"You can come out from under the desk now, Nancy. Gunny has your ass covered." No one who knows what is going on, is cowing in fear.
There can be no compromise with those Islamo Facists. The Russians know it. The French know it. The Arabs know it. These fanatics should be hunted down and killed off, just like what the Saudis, the Algerians, the Jordanians, the Egypians, the Russians have been doing to them.
This 'socio-politico' stuff is crap. Yeah sure, you can convert to Islam (be sure it is Sunni, else it does not count and you are still gonna die), institute Sharia, establish Global Caliphate, submit to the rule of Osama and his clergymen. That is the 'socio-politico' root cause that the Islamo Facists are having issues with. Yeah, good luck with that! Better hurry up and surrender. We don't want to stall on solving the root cause of this big 'socio-politico' problem.
You can go bellyaching about root cause, symptom, compassion, blah blahblah. It is all a total waste of breathe. "You can come out from the desk now, Nancy. Gunny has your ass covered." We know how to deal them and we are dealing with them.
Back to work. Have a nice weekend.:bb:
P.S. The Iraqi got it right when Prime Minister Malik said," Every time a Zarqawi appears, we will kill him. We will continue confronting whoever follows his path. It is an open war between us."
Take it from those who live it.

Mullet, I said I wasnt talking about you, but of the debate that started to rise immediately after finding out he was killed. I was addressing what democrats are saying, not what you were saying.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier
the only personal response I have to you is that you are right this is not THE military victory that finishes this war, but rather a good piece to helping end it. Just a piece, but an important piece. There are alot of fence sitters there, who arent sure if we are going to stick this out to full completion. Events like this help sway those fence sitters to our side and away from the insurgents. So therefore it is a functional victory. It is a functional victory because of that action, yeilded more intelligence info about there activities, it will help sway the fence sitters, it shows we are making progress because it was iraqis who ratted this guy out.
And what is this distate of muslim people you talk about, that we have in our country. What got us into Iraq was that for over a decade Saddam Hussain never abided to the UN terms. He played games with the inspectors, he was flying into the no fly zone areas AND shooting at our fighter planes patroling the no fly zone areas. Even though they didnt find nukes, they did say he had an active program for re-constituting those programs. We had plenty of justification for getting rid of Hussain.
After 9/11, I believe our President changed his views. Just like Japan and Germany were our eniemes in WW2 and Vietnam was an enemy in the 60's and 70's, now, in this time they are friends and allies. I believe the President is looking for long term goals here, that in 20-30 years this could change the whole land scape of the middle east and making the next generations more secure from Islamic radicalism. it wasnt retribution and distate of muslims that brought us into Iraq.

You're right. Truly, how could I have been so foolish to not see how the US military has this entire situation under complete control? Well it is probably because, as CDB said, there is not a chance the US will pull out of Iraq successfully unless they are there for 20 years.Originally Posted by BioHazzard
Lefties? America haters? Is your argument and belief system that desperately one-sided that you result to labelling when you don't have perspective on another individual's view? There are many labels I could have immaturely placed on you given your previous responses, but I usually like to base my comments on the statements, not who I think the person is.Originally Posted by Biohazzard
If thinking logically and not wholey ingesting every word George W. Bush struggles to say is despicable then I may very well be the most horrible person on earth.Originally Posted by Biohazzard
This is the same type of ignorant attitude that will keep your country there for 10 years. The "1 jihad, 2 jihad, big jihad, little jihad, or great jihad" is an integral part of the culture that your president has aligned himself against. Effectively, his military is only fighting the extremists, but there is a growing contempt for the United States in the Middle East. It may benefit you to drop the inherent racism in your comments and learn something about the Moslem religion and culture.Originally Posted by Biohazzard
Never once said they should not be.There can be no compromise with those Islamo Facists. The Russians know it. The French know it. The Arabs know it.

Yes, you are right, analyzing a situation under it's socio-political lines is complete crap. Taking into account the religious and social history of the region, in order to truly understand it's inherent connection with political happenings of the region is being a *****. We should follow your logic and just destroy every individual whose skin isn't the same shades as ours. I truly despise labelling people along political lines, because I believe it implies a certain extremism, and close-mindedness, not only on their part, but on mine as well. However, your comments unfortunately ooze with an arrogant, "good ol' boy" attitude that displays how much actual thought you invest in global issues. So, I will continue to think logically how an assertive approach fixating on destroying the network's means to transport, communitcate and function properly, effectively treating the disease. You can continue to shoot all the Iraqi's you want and have more of your soldiers killed in a conflict that will drag on longer than you will expect.Originally Posted by Biohazzard
