Normalacy = pre-surge violence level.
I caught that "Return to normalcy" statement. Every step of the way George Bush has blown it in Iraq. And there are a lot of people who are deluded into "thinking" that these half- assed policys should continue. But what gets me the angriest, what I find unforgiveable, is the sending in our troops into a war of choice and badly equipping them so that many more were killed and injured than was necessary.
That I find criminal. I hope when he's finally run out of the White House he's hounded until his dying day by people who find him criminally responsible. What a detestable human this "pro-life" President is.
U.S. Troops were burned and hung in Fallujah?
(ps - the argument looks better when you get the facts straight, yo)
Cochise, you're kidding, right? Fallujah was basically the worst action Marines saw since Khe Sahn.
i thought Blackwater was a separate entity from the "troops."
maybe i just need to look up the definition of the word troop. hmmm
Josh - #5 is right. Re-read the first sentance of the link you gave: "...the charred and mutilated bodies of four contractors.."
Don't get me wrong - I agree with the premise of your article. But it's incorrect to state that the bodies of US troops were burned & hung. They were in fact military contractors.
@7 no, i'm not kidding. and when did i say there was no action in Fallujah? you're kidding, right?
i just remembered the incident that josh referred to like this:
1) Blackwater security guards roll into Fallujah.
2) crowd kills security guards
3) crowd drags, burn and hang security guards from bridge.
4) troops roll in and kick everyones ass to death.
i guess i've never heard of the incident in Fallujah where troops were burned and hung.
and if we're now calling security guards troops, please let me know.
Normalcy = when we were the ones selling Saddam WMD and the Red Bushies were the ones getting rich off of the no-bid contracts for doing so.

I changed American troops to American contractors.
josh - not necessary. bottom line is, we're all american troops fighting for freedom.
Freedom? We can't even fly with valid state driver's licenses inside America wearing legal nipple rings to get married in another state to our gay lover?
