It must be something in the water

Take a look at what chimpys neighbors are saying about Cindy Sheehan.

If all these assholes are so pro-war, what the fuck are they doing here? They should be in Iraq, fighting for Bushs' "Noble cause".

Yeah, most of those are pretty disgusting, but the rather lengthy one from the guy who had served twice in Iraq was so good.

Just so you don't have to go through all of them:

First of all, I am a veteran and have been to Iraq twice in support of our troops. I fully support our troops, with that said I don't, support our efforts in Iraq. We went into Iraq headstrong and under false pretenses. Since I went into Iraq with 4th ID, I thought what we were doing was right. I felt we would find evidence of the weapons that the Bush administration said where there. WE DID NOT!!!. We also went into Iraq with a poor idea of what we planned to do, and how we were going to do it. One of the first things we did wrong was disband the military. They just turned into insurgents that we would have to fight another day. Secondly, anyone who reads anything about Islam and the history of it in the Middle East knows that these factions have been fighting for centuries. All we did was insert ourselves in the middle. These people disagree over the most trivial things and yet they are all Islamics, with relatively little differences when you really examine them. Bu they have been fighting for years. They have a very deep attachment as families and clans. Almost like the Hatfield's and McCoy's. Saddam, for all his bad traits, at least had these people under control. Removing him by force was probably one of the worst things we could have done for that region. He helped keep Iran in check, and at one time, as a country, we were helping him do so. You cannot force democracy and free will on people who have never known it, don't understand it and don't appreciate it. This nation, under the guidance of George W. Bush, no matter what you say, has gone into nation building. We need to get out of that business. Afghanistan was done for all the right reasons; Iraq was not.
Having worked with so many soldiers in Iraq, I can tell you that morale can get low, but I don't believe it gets low because people in the states are protesting to bring them home. Honestly, I feel more of the soldiers are happy that their families are protesting to bring them home. Asking that the government bring the soldiers home is not the same as saying that America doesn't support them. Pro-War activist should stop trying to make that illegitimate comparison. I'm sure many Vietnam Vets weren't sad that all the protestors wanted us out of Vietnam in the early 70's.
We are now in somewhat of quagmire, no matter what the government says (They have to put a positive spin on everything, that's their JOB). Our only saving grace is that not nearly as many soldiers are being killed in Iraq as Vietnam. However, let the casualties quadruple or more, and see how many people quickly switch to Cindy Sheehan's viewpoint. Cindy Sheehan has a right to protest. More people should. If the polls are any reflection, most American would like us to leave Iraq. Granted, I am not for cutting and running. We have to stay the course to get the job done, but the job never should have been started in the first place. The families who have lost your sons and daughters deserve our respect, but if you were to bring those young adults back, and they could choose to do it over again, do you really think they would have thought that what they died for was worth it and sign up to go to Iraq again? I seriously doubt it. It was a waste of a young, precious life, in many cases. Having been to Iraq twice, I went the first time for the patriotism and the second time for the money. Our freedom here in America was never in immediate danger from Iraq, although it makes a great story for our government to fall back on as a reason for going in. Isn't it interesting that the reasons for going in have all turned to "Freedom for the Poor Iraqi's". Granted, you can make an argument that killing all those militants in the Middle East has helped make us more secure, but no one can say that we haven't created as many militants by being there, as we have killed. The problem is that our government never understood the culture or what we were getting into. I personally think Mr. Bush Jr. just wanted to be like his dad Mr. Bush Sr. and enjoy the success of freeing a conquered country.
As Christian, I question some of his reasoning and analogies. I'm not sure we read the same bible. I don't believe in Islam (although I read plenty about it) but I do believe and understand the fervor in which those that do believe in that religion, follow it. You have to treat them like bees...leave them alone and let them do what they do. If they attack you, then go after them. In the meantime, be vigilant, because you know who they are and what they are capable of.

The good people are good. The bad people are just filled with hate and rage.

Amen Chris Bray. And one thought--I understand the woman who's family wanted that boy's name removed from the cross. They don't share the ideology and because of that it's totally acceptable to take that back. They've paid for their ideology more than I've paid for mine--so far, that is.

The rest of the ones I read were retarded. Don't they have schools in Texas? I guess that's all I have to say.

You'll like this editorial in the Boston Globe, outlining KKKarl Rove's history of dirty tricks:

I read it this morning. I watched a movie "Bushs' Brain". All about Rove, and all the treacherous shit he has pulled in his career.

Absolutely incredible that anyone calling themself a "Christian" would have anything to do with a puke like Rove.

Oh yeah, I saw Bush's Brain before the 2004 election. Absolutely sickening the stuff that guy has done due to his lust for power. A master manipulator to be sure.
