      JCS say Guantanamo should be closed.

      Didn't the Bush administration and all their apologists, including Newt Gingrich, say that you can never go against the military or you hate the troops?

        Such a silly comment from you. Sounds like something Scarecrow/hottrotter would post.

            From the article posted by SC
            Mullen confirmed a Pentagon report leaked this week that said an increasing number of detainees have "returned to the battlefield in the last year or two."
            Looks like releasing these thugs is a bad idea.

              Hey libtard. How's that case going that proves the Iraq war cost $3,000,000,000,000.00?

                  So are both of you saying that conservatives have always believed it was okay to criticize the military and NOT be considered traitors?

                  A simple "yes" or "no" will suffice.

                      That article reads:

                      "The U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could cost taxpayers a total of $2.4 trillion by 2017..."

                      And now you resort to rolling the cost of a war in another county to pad your still incorrect figure. It's an estimate of two separate wars 8 years into the future. At least you're consistent with your propaganda.

                      Just two months ago you said...

                      Nothing is more stupid than a liar who boasts a grossly exaggerated figure, then posts links that contradicts his own libtarded statements.

                      Thanks for taking the time to prove yourself wrong again libtard.

                        Hey moonbat, the article indeed says "could." That means there is a possibility they "could" cost MORE.

                        Which puts me closer to my claim of the war's cost than your claim of Obama not being a citizen.

                          Which means the amount might be 2.4 trillion, split between two wars. So Iraq might reach 1.2 Trillion. Plus they include interest which falsely inflates the numbers.

                            To claim "conservatives" do this or that is too vague. If you have a quote where someone made that claim, post it.

                            You have your crazies on the left and we have some on the right. Means nothing. Your statement was silly, pure and simple.

                              Nice dodge. Let me ask it another way.

                              Are you saying conservatives (on these boards) never called anyone a traitor for being critical of the troops?

                                To be honest... I dunno. Probably.

                                So what?

                                You do this from time to time. It's cute and all, but pretty unimaginative.

                                Oh well, get down with your bad self!
