Oooh, I could take issue with practically every word of that.
Same here, there's just too many flawed arguments there to even bother.
So, when people claim that the media is too liberal out of touch with mainstream opinion, are they talking about Rupert Murdoch, the guy who owns more of it than any other human being on Earth?
The only good thing he's ever done is screen The Simpsons.
What three terrible things did the US save the world from?
WWII - fascism
Cold War - Communism
What's the third? WWI - ???
or something else?
He's right on a purely mathematical level that the death toll for US troops is lower than in previous big wars, but it's not a terribly meaningful point.
Let him send some family over there to fight and see if he feels the same.
What a typical, out-of-touch neocon ********.
Presumably he's referring to WW1, WW2 and Korea. And ignoring a much longer list of disastrous interventions.
Right on. As long as he is not losing money or close ones he will not care about anything going on in Iraq.
all ********, death toll is less doesn't mean you are entitled to sacrifice other people's life for nothing, which is exactly whats happening here.
Those who never have to fight allways think its ok. Old men having young men die. If the Farts who start wars had to fight them themself war would be extinct. Fox news is loaded with these guys.
And just when I thought I could not despise this piece of sheep-dip any more than I do, he raises the bar a little further. There should be a law against being totally repulsive.
Notice how he said it in Japan. Coward. Colbert and Stewart would have ripped him apart.
Notice how we heard many demands that he retract his remarks and apologize, just like we did when John Kerry made his dumb joke.
really? i haven't heard... oh.
What is your point?
Neither of those did the US save the world from,they helped certainly,although in the case of Fascism a good case can be made for the US establishment actually promoting it.I'll leave the semantics and use of the word Communism as I can't be arsed going into all that again.
Including, of course, George's grandfather.
The point is, we didn't. Kerry misspoke in a way which could be interpreted as being disrespectful of the armed forces and was immediately gang-banged by the media. Murdoch deliberately and crudely trivializes the number of deaths they've suffered in the war, and nobody even peeps.
There are times when shipping Keith Rupert Murdoch back to Melbourne seems like a plausibe idea. Like, now. My respect for FOX is rather minute.
I'm sure the Australians don't want him either.
Because he's a hero of the patriotic right. Unlike American born Kerry, who actually served in the military, was wounded in combat, and now serves in an elected office. He's a terrible public speaker with a (D) after his name. The liberal media overlooked Boener's comment too FWIW, despite it's obvious meaning.
Hey, why are we in Iraq anyway? I thought that Bin Laden guy over in one a them 'stans attacked us. Never did get an answer to that question...
Interesting how the extreme right declares that every human life is precious
down to a molecular level, but soldiers are viewed as expendable pawns since they volunteered to serve their country.
Of course Murdock's perspective does not consider more than 20,000 wounded
or place any value on the lives of Iraqi citizens who have suffered so greatly.
They believe that life begins at conception, and ends at birth.
