Freepi support our troops, as evidenced by this thread about the 3,000th dead service member in the Iraq war:
Philadelphia Pennsylvania lost over 400 people just this year through crime. The liberal strongholds in the U.S. are far more dangerous than Iraq when you check out the number of dead each year. Go figure.
How many Americans die every year in auto accidents?
Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That’s 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.
We lost 3000 civilians in one day.
FLU deaths have increased since the ’60s
Averaging 36,000 a year.
What could be described as the most charitable of all the comments is essentially, “wow, sucks to be their parents.” I’ve said it before, but bears repeating: If they were truly committed to their cause, they wouldn’t need to be so quick to make excuses, to do Sicko Math about car accidents and 9/11 death tolls, to find a way to say eh, it’s not so bad. If they were really deep down confident in the war’s justice and the purity of its prosecution, they would look at the number of 3,000 and say “thank you, thank you, thank you,” as we say to veterans of World War II, not “fuck it, my mother’s cousin’s bridge partner’s husband once told me some shit about homicides in Philly.”
Deep down, they know they’re wrong. And so they’ve got to find a way to explain these deaths away, because conviction isn’t going to get the job done today.
