The movie thing is irrelevant in and of itself, considering how many people are against the war and how many people make a movie. Let alone the fact that any of the movies you are talking about are almost always about true events.

I think the people who describe the Armed Forces as a terrorist group are extreme, and do not reflect the Left. And I know of no one of my fellow independents that say that.

Do you not believe it possible to be against the war and not hate the troops?

Single dumbest statement I've ever heard today. Congrats.

If you really want me to, I'll explain it, but I have a feeling you don't really even believe that yourself.

BULLSHIT!!!

Let's see:

The right: let's send the troops into a war we don't need and let's make sure they don't have the proper equipment.

The left: let's bring our troops home, they don't need to be there, I'd rather have them alive.

Which sounds more supportive to you?

this totally avoids serious debate.

i'm sure those Iraqis loved your brother. i'm sure there are many troops doing wonderful things. that doesn't mean i support this fiasco nor does it mean that i think a single future American or Iraqi death will be for anything other than a colossal mistake.

i have a friend who's been to Iraq 3 times. and he's totally anti-war. he's not anti-troop, not by a longshot. he's anti-the fucktards who got us into this mess and are too incompetent to even tell anyone what the goal is or what victory looks like.

Damn, I thought you could figure out the point I was trying to make. Guess not. Maybe I should be a little more obvious, how many, just a quick percentage of the left are making these movies?

Who?
a majority of the troops?



Quote:
The military, like any community within the United States, includes members both for and against the war. Senior generals, such as General John Batiste and Paul Eaton, have come out against the war while others have publicly supported it. A December 2006 poll conducted by the Military Times found just 35 percent of service members approved of President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq, compared to 42 percent who disapproved. From this figure alone, it is clear that Mr. Limbaugh’s insult is directed at thousands of American service members.

So I'm guessing due to the silence, we realize Rush really hasn't done anything all that supportive, and that we realize the movie makers are a small minority and that labeling the left because of the actions by a few is wrong?

Nope, he's a phony, our own FYM armchair military correspondent said, "One supports the troops by supporting the mission", so we know it has to be true.

I thought I would go to militarytimes.com for a credible source

Poll: 1 in 5 Iraqis has confidence in coalition

The Associated Press
Posted : Monday Mar 19, 2007 8:26:36 EDT

LONDON — Fewer than one in five Iraqis has confidence in U.S.-led coalition troops and they are evenly split on whether they have confidence in Iraq’s government, according to a poll published Monday.

Iraqis are growing increasingly pessimistic, according to a poll gauging public opinion four years after the U.S.-led invasion of their country. The British Broadcasting Corp., ABC News, USA Today and Germany’s ARD television commissioned the poll.

Only 18 percent of Iraqis have confidence in U.S. and coalition troops and 86 percent are concerned that someone in their household will be a victim of violence.

Iraqis do not want to see their country divided along sectarian lines, according to the poll. However, the country is becoming increasingly polarized between Sunnis and Shiites — with Sunnis appearing more pessimistic.

Pessimism is most felt across central Iraq, including Baghdad, where Sunnis are most numerous.

Religious differences are most pronounced in attitudes toward the execution of Saddam Hussein. Sunni respondents largely regard the manner of the former Iraqi leader’s death as inappropriate and unlikely to encourage reconciliation. Shiites predominantly took the opposite view.

More than 2,000 Iraqis were interviewed face-to-face by D3 Systems, a pollster specializing in conflict countries, between Feb. 25 to March 5. The margin of error was not immediately available.
