#1 I'm an active duty Marine (obvious from my handle), anyway I doubt this guy has three kids in the military or even over there for that matter. If he did have kids serving over there he'd know better then to embarass them with this foolish rhetoric.

#2 You know I am sick and tired of these F-heads saying that Bush is not a 'legitimate' president.

They can't seem to get over the fact that he WON the LEGAL ELECTION legitimately and all the supremes did was prevent the LOSER AL GORE from stealing the election by calling recount after recount after recount until he wins.

Ok... enough threadjacking for today...

#4 $200K USD - prolly came from Saudi sources funneled through CAIR or ANSWER...

Better use: buy air conditioners or similar for his "sons" - I'm with Jarhead, this guy is obviously a phool, prolly a liar, too.

#5 Win Without War’s $200,000 advertising campaign, unveiled at a National Press Club news conference

Clearly their dissent is being silenced!

So, when will the segment of the anti-war movement that was anti- for fear that we wouldn't stick through the reconstruction tell these clowns to get stuffed? OK, I'm not going to be holding my breath for it, but it would be nice to see some intellectual honesty from them.

#6 Give this guy a $1M so that he can annoy more people with his stupid message. He is sadly right that transfer of oversight to the UN would not releive the US taxpayer of any of the cost. At least this was some of the $20B portion for rebuilding will actually end up in projects and not be looted by the UN-crats.

#7 Yeah, ask Phung Ma at the local convienience store to tell you what happened the last time Congress cut a country off at the knees and we had to cut and run. I'm sure you'll hear an interesting tale. I've heard many of them.
These assholes never learn.

#8 I'm tired of these jackasses trying to speak for me. They DEMAND this and DEMAND that, but haven't got two brain cells to use to determine if what they demand is either workable or feasible. They just want "their team" to be in charge. Their team lost. It's time to shut up. If that isn't intelligent enough for them to understand, someone needs to drive the message home with a 4x4 - fired from a pumpkin cannon at zero range.

#9 A google search on "branden syverson" will lead you to this PDF file of a newsletter from ATK Corp., whatever that is. The final page has an article entitled "Honoring the ultimate ATK customer", and shows an award being handed to Branden Syverson, for being "the top graduate of the Army's tank master gunner course".

This article on [spit] Common Dreams (kidnapped from the Baltimore Sun) confirms that this is Syverson's kid, and adds that Branden, at least, was "gung ho" to go to Iraq.

Parents, at some point your kids are adults, able to make their own choices and determine their own futures. To pretend that these men---MEN---are little children ripped from their loving daddy's arms to fight some awful nasty war dishonors them. Protest all you want, but don't shame your grown sons to do it.

The article goes on to say that all four of Syverson's sons enlisted; three are career. May they be safe.

#10 I'll bet they have interesting table talk when the Syverson family gets together...

So the Win Without War gang is putting up $200,000 for a "national" advertising campaign??

Hahahahaha...that'll buy a billboard in San Francisco and Seattle.
