    I think you'll find that the insurgents in Iraq are a more appropriate model.

    And here I thought we were in Iraq because of 9/11. I mean WMDs. No, it is terrorists. Oh, ok, now it's for their freedom. Wait, it's all about 9/11 again apparently. :rolleyes: As skunk touched upon, the American Revolution was about our freedom from tyranny. This war is about the Iraqi freedom. I guess. I don't see anyone siding with Saddam. Even Bin Laden didn't. We just have a problem with the way the war is being handled, and a true patriot would look at how things are really going, and protest the mistakes of the administration. That's why we fought against King George in the first place. Freedom. And I'll be damned if I'm going to let anybody tell me I'm not patriotic, or even call me a traitor, because I complain when I call the government on it's gross mistakes that are getting my friends killed while the guy who actually did attack us is still running around free.

    Comparing a liberal filmmaker to Benedict Arnold because his view is different than the current administration isn't going to help anybody. Link to someone who's actually been there. But I suppose the Iraq Vetrans Against the War are traitors too.

    In related news, the ghost of George Washington arose from its grave and strangled a writer named Michael Graham. Police found a document which Graham authored, near Graham's mud-stained throat, comparing Washington to George Bush.

    Contacted at the FBI about the bizarre case, agent Fox Mulder said, "No, we won't be investigating. Far as we can tell, he got what was coming to him."

    Just this morning I was chatting with a friend at a neighborhood 4th of July party and he mentioned a less-often quoted passage in the Declaration of Independence, which seems ever more timely. One of the grievances filed against King George:

    Happy Independence Day, everybody!

    it's an interesting little piece, but there's a major flaw. the iraqis aren't throwing off their oppressive gov't for independence. this is more akin to france invading and occupying the colonies in order to spread freedom. i'm guessing g.w. wouldn't have stood for that.

    I think this has more relevance than your original posting.
