JD's text in bold
Graves, you're willing to use that statistic, but when hundreds of Nobel prize winners, political theorists, scientists, MENSA directors, some of the most intelligent people on this planet, sign a petition stating that they oppose the war and they are opposed to the reelection of President Bush, your side discounts it. A little hypocritical, aren't we?
They aren't there fighting the war are they JD? So I guess you are just stating that the troops are morons and their opinions should be discounted because they aren't part of MENSA? I hate to break it to you but not all intelligent people are against this war.
Because if a troop statement says something, then so should the impressions of all the bright people on this planet. Certainly the troops are a selective sample... what kind of person joins the military? Probably someone who would agree with bush's policy. They'd also be less than likely to come out and say 'Well, we're here, andmy buddies have sacrificed to achieve what we have... but it was really a waste of time.'
I can see it happening. Look at all the soldier's that spoke out against 'Nam. Of course that was a Democrat's war so no big deal...right?
Again the troops are experiencing it, not you. If they thought their friend died for an unjust reason I can guarantee that would speak up. Soldiers have balls.
I just can't see that happening too often.
As for what you said earlier, I can argue with him not on the point that he feels degraded, but on the point that he shouldn't feel that way, because he's misinterpreted the anti-war position in the most basic way imaginable, as I said above. We're not against the troops, we're for the troops.
JD I believe that your for the troops but calling him a moron for offering his opinion doesn't offer much support does it? He feels degraded by the anti-war movement. Plain and simple. That, I believe, is not arguable.
