  1. I think that if you ever have a kid that you dont want to go into the military, this would be a pretty good video to show him to dissuade him into joining.

  2. Wasted 4 minutes watching that babbling dbag.

    So many complaints and no solutions.
  3. Its a wake up video. Thats the first part of the solution.
  4. Good video!
  5. you are just now coming to the realization that george bush and pals played you for a fool with a combination of fear mongering and religious bs? now that is funny. where have you been?

    The defector who convinced the White House that Iraq had a secret biological weapons programme has admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify the war.

    Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed Curveball by German and American intelligence officials who dealt with his claims, has told the Guardian that he fabricated tales of mobile bioweapons trucks and clandestine factories in an attempt to bring down the Saddam Hussein regime, from which he had fled in 1995.

    "Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right," he said. "They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime. I and my sons are proud of that and we are proud that we were the reason to give Iraq the margin of democracy."

    The admission comes just after the eighth anniversary of Colin Powell's speech to the United Nations in which the then-US secretary of state relied heavily on lies that Janabi had told the German secret service, the BND. It also follows the release of former defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld's memoirs, in which he admitted Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction programme.

  6. for sure dont let your girls join the military. it is more dangerous than the worst inner city street after dark:

    "They were not exceptions. According to several studies of the US military funded by the Department of Veteran Affairs, 30% of military women are raped while serving, 71% are sexually assaulted, and 90% are sexually harassed."

    Sounds like the the Iraq war was mostly Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi's fault. Is it OK to stop blaming Bush now?
