Thanks skallas, but these posters are just leftist bullshit.
Nicely photoshopped, leftist, bullshit. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 6:40 AM on August 14, 2002
Thanks adampsyche, but are we playing a game here? Parody of military posters is fine by me, but making an extremely serious and horribly catastrophic world war which wrought hundreds of thousands of casualties, including my, and quite possibly your family members, ought not be trivialized by ridiculous, infantile, "Bush-is-a-chimp" style leftist rhetoric.
There is a time to fight for what you believe and protect, and this parody-poster nonsense struck a... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 6:55 AM on August 14, 2002
Isn't that like declaring war on rebellion?
Yes rebellion is exactly the same as terrorism.

And what is it that we are up against these days that we need to stand up and fight for?

fab7: Whether or not you "feel" that you are in danger, there are countless, untold (Islamist terrorists and other) masses who would like nothing better than to kill you where you stand. Perhaps "feeling" like you are in very grave, dire danger would be closer to reality. Get them before they get us now!... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 7:32 AM on August 14, 2002
Thanks skallas: "Dissent is hardly bullshit, many of the points made here are fairly common concerns here in the states."
Concerns and dissent are constitutionally protected, as are leftist parodies of war posters. Please do not misunderstand my criticism.
The "idealized" past is not only the past, but the actual situation that we face now. There is a war and not a "war against ambigious peoples" but (not war yet)... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 8:05 AM on August 14, 2002
sonofsamiam: I meant no offense. I love libertarians. Did you mean "leftarians" by chance? posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 8:21 AM on August 14, 2002
"With all the talk about how little evidence the Bush administration has tying Saddam Hussein to the 9-11 attacks, we're more than a little surprised at how quickly reporters, not to mention the White House, seem to have forgotten about Salman Pak".

That second link is terrible. I had to side scroll to read it.
Really? The whiterose link? No probs here. An excerpt:
"Anyone who wants the United States to start a war bears a heavy burden of proof: can we achieve the goal via war? is the goal worthwhile? is the goal achievable through no other means? is getting what we want worth the trouble it will cause us in the short and long terms?

As something of a minor expert in this field, I suggest shelling out a little for a better product, even if it means going without for a while. The rotgut only costs less in terms of money, but you'll pay twice the price in agony the next day when satan is using your noggin for a mixture of football punting practice, and an open call for jackhammer solos. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 2:50 AM on August 14, 2002

Now they tell us. Sheesh.

Postroad's right. These whiners are the first ones to demand that the US take action when their tails are on the line.
Unfortunately, this same sentiment could just as well have come from Berkeley as London. Ho Hum. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 5:29 PM on August 10, 2002
There may be a slight problem with that link. Be that as it may, you might be grasping at futile straws with the "wrong place" idea. And as far as I am concerned, I have seen only one WTC proposal that is worth its salt and it's this. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 4:18 AM on August 7, 2002
Right. My reason for posting this is that, to me, it's the most dignified and respectful replacement. There are other rather depressing, dreary ideas, and good reasons for not rebuilding another structual and economic failure . posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 6:38 AM on August 7, 2002
Here's an article written in 2001. North Korea is dangerous, unpredictable and violent, terrorist country.

"I still find this kind of conjecture more than offensive. "
Absolutely. Not only offensive but disgusting. Orwell's 1984? Fleener says our freedoms have been raped. I say if this is rape, then what does it take to awaken you to the fact that people want you, innocents, to die the most horrible deaths to glorify their horrid god.
