    one of the other things we (hopefully) learned from 9/11 was that simply showing up at the scene of a disaster for photo ops does not qualify one for higher office, it's more of a bare minimum level of competency.

    The "Never Forget" is a bit nauseating but that's Social Media. I don't think it will ever really die down since it is the biggest tragedy on our soil however you look at it.

    This is brave of you. I applaud your courage. I’d like to one-up you and go on the record saying that I hope the Saudis leave us alone the other 364(5) days of the year as well.

    Graduation practice the day before I graduated Basic Training. It was just my Drill Sergeant and I when he got the call from the company that something was going on. We hauled ass back to the barracks just in time to see the second plane hit. Everybody was so excited to graduate before it happened but the mood obviously changed immediately. Everyone knew we were going to war. 2 years later, my ass was heading to Iraq for the first time to fight against people who had nothing to do with 9/11.

    Hard to say without being alive for those events. I kind of doubt that people in 1959 were still reliving Pearl Harbor though. Probably one of those things that social media has also largely enabled.

    God this reminds me so much of the "slippery slope" argument 2A nuts love to throw in your face when it comes to gun control.

    These fuckfaces were eagerly gave up rights to privacy and due process in the name of increased government bureaucracy and oversight. Literally the antithesis to everything they supposedly believe in for how the government should operate

    Did America really kill 1.6 million iraqis? Or are they just trying to pad the numbers?

    I remember that accurate body counts varied widely and were difficult to come by, but 1.6m seems excessive.


    edit : my internet sleuting leads me to believe that this number represents the maximum estimate of all iraqis displaced from iraq between 1997 and 2007, including refugees who left.

    If someone has trouble believing this, it’s from a Brown University project called Costs of War where they studied data from October 2001 to October 2018 across those 3 countries, discounting the major operations carried out in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Syria.
    It is a severe undercount due to the immeasurable indirect deaths caused indirectly by disease, displacement, and loss of critical infrastructure.

    From my reading, the 1.6m claim seems to be a misinterpretation of a survey conducted by Opinion Research Business (ORB), which extrapolated these numbers from face-to-face interviews with 2,414 adults in certain Iraqi provinces, which was then compared to 1997 Iraqi census numbers.

    Americans dropping bombs on or shooting that many Iraqis? No.

    Iraqis killed directly or indirectly from Americans and the instability we’ve wrought on the region? Yes.

    So I was right, this is using the ORB study I was just talking shit about

    If someone moved to Turkey or Europe or the US then they are counted as "Dead, killed by Americans"

    If someone had a heart attack in 1998 they are counted as "Dead, killed by Americans."

    Murdered by ISIS? "Dead, killed by Americans."

    Yep..only time I went was right before noon and they stopped working to stand at attention for the national anthem.

    Knew then I'd never go back . And the BBQ was very mediocre.
