Operation Yellow Elephant

As you all know, the US military is suffering a manpower crisis. Recruitment levels have fallen short of the stated goals; as a result, there is a critical shortage of volunteers who are willing to go to Iraq and take on those terrorists.

To help alleviate this military manpower crisis, Operation Yellow Elephant has been launched. Operation Yellow Elephant is a program designed to encourage Young Republicans to "step up to the plate" and volunteer for combat duty in Iraq. You
can read all about it at :-

Do you folks believe in the war on crime? Do you think that criminals like murderers and rapists ought to be hunted down and jailed? If so, why don't you do what I did for seven years - work for the police department? Come on, you say you believe in justice - prove it!

I guess this line of reasoning is only "clever" when it involves the H.O.T. Tax.

Well speaking for myself, as a former fraud investigator I have worked with the police in numerous investigations to combat political corruption, financial crime, drug dealing and money laundering.

Anyway, never mind.

I love it! I always say, if these young republican guys support the war so much, why don't they go fight in it? That always makes them at least stutter in a good argument

It didn't make me stutter. I always said exactly what I said earlier: If you believe in the war on crime, why don't you join the police department?

We don't have a shortage of policemen. On the other hand, we do have a shortage of funding for policemen a lot of the time, so they're not going to hire people they have no funding for.

Unfortunately the "war on crime" is all too often "the war on drugs" which I emphatically do not support, so I cannot in good conscience work for a police force. So there you go.

Sadly, I find no humor in it at all.

Must have lost it when three people I know died on 9/11.

Must have lost it when we burried a"Young Republican" who attended my church.

Must have lost it, when former students of mine enlisted this spring.

Must have lost it when the people I served with re-enlisted.

Sorry, the humor is lost on me.

More shit in this forum.

And I must have lost whatever respect I had for the American military when I saw the photo in the Irish Times

of the 7 year old Iraqi girl with the blood on her face

and the look of terror

after seeing her parents murdered by American mercenaries

involved knowingly or otherwise

in an illegal war for oil and Israel

that was sold on a tissue of LIES

by the neo-cons and their apologists and their patsies

in business, the media and elswhere

because that Iraqi family was

IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME

so spare me the bullshit, the moral hypocrisy and the double standards

AND you can take your moral high ground, and you can shove it up your hole.

And as George Galloway said in his Victory speech, "Mr Blair, this is for IRAQ, for all the LIES you told, and all the people you murdered."

Up George Galloway

Up the Respect Party
