WAR PROPAGANDA by glogauer WAR PROPAGANDA by glogauer
Another little point of view on this awful illegal war in Iraq.

I am not anti-war or anti-anything...
I'm a positive person and I am just PRO-PEACE!

I don't like Saddam Hussein and his bloody dictatorial government.

If the U.S. government is a democratic one, why did it begin war in Iraq AGAINST THE WILL OF THE UNITED NATIONS AND IN SPITE OF ALL INTERNATIONAL LAWS?
This is a criminal act against human kind and democracy.

Violence is the last refuge of incompetence...

Comments welcome.

How was it an illegal war. Congress passed a declaration of war on the nation of the middle east. Therefore it is by definition, while costly, it is a legal war.

You have to go to the UN to justify war. The U.S. did not.

We are the exception to that rule and what do you think people did before the U.N.  Declarations of war. Plus the United states holds the most seats therefore can do whatever it wants. This war is neither illegal nor unconstitutional. These rash claims are made by leftists and their sympathizers to gain public favor and cause unrest to keep the country from advance to the greatness it can achieve. Please be smart and disregard any future childish claims that this war is unconstitutional, for they are false.

Oh I see. So the US is above the rest of the rules it set with the rest of the world? this is why 90% of people I know are incredibly bitter or simply anti US government. To sit in Australia and have our troops going to war for America and die is completly unessesary conflict.  The fact that you just specifically said you are the exception of that rule would fuel anger in anyone like me that reads this comment. 

The facts are there. The U.S. went to war in Iraq to destabilised the Middle East and allows the coprerations to start oil drilling in the country. The entire bush administration had huge connections to oil pipes with Turkey and they had been planning to build i through iraq since before the first gulf war. 

creating ethnic hostilities by making Shia death squads which led to the creation of the Islamic state. No war is legal. But the US loves to make their conflicts seem like some crusade for freedom. 

Maybe you should try and understand why people do what they do. And why conflicts like there start. One thing I notice with media in the US is it loves to play on terms like "pure evil" to keep the true reasons of comflict seceret.

Well to me, being an active duty officer of the United states Marine Corps, I see it as the rest of the world is too weak or in some cases, yours specifically, unmovable towards the goal of suppression through force of arms. There is no such thing as the term you people have dubbed "peace". You, who sit on your assess, arguing about something that doesn't even involve you. "Peace" as you called is only the short hiatus to prepare for the next battle. Whether you accept it or not makes no difference to me for humans will always fight both validated wars and your so called "illegal" wars with or without your consent. Truth be told your life doesn't really matter all that much does it? War has the magical ability to treat everyone with the same answer. I can ignore everything from skin color, to ethnicity and even social status, because within one instant that bullet passes through your skull, or that bomb lands on your house, or that shell pulverizes your homes, your sorry, sad, little life will be snuffed out without a thought.

So I'm now asking on a mature level, one that you have clearly shown that you have, will you simply sit and die like everyone else, or will you take up arms and defend yourself and die with defiance on your breath saying that you died with your brothers. 

Your kind of people honestly sickens me. Simply complaining about war and bitching in your computer chairs saying that " OHHHH! They're sending of my countrymen to die in some 'illegal' war!?! AHHH I must blog about this straight away."  Either man the Fuck up or Sit the Fuck down and Shut up. You can support the troops all you want but don't you dare disgrace them. If anyone's the disgrace it's you and everyone like you.


An answer to your question of "Why people do what they do?" 

Because of three distinct reasons:
1- Hate - the simple thing that drives our emotions to their peaks and allows us to speak against that which we dislike and take action
2- Lust for conflict - no matter how small or how deeply seeded it is in your mind, we all crave death and destruction in one way or another, ad if you say you don't then you aren't ready to express it yet.
3- Human Nature - If you didn't fail history in middle through High school you'd realize that with war comes humanity. The bigger the war the more the humanity. Whether it is humane or inhumane everything is humanity. 

Enjoy your comfortable life behind four walls a ceiling and floor with sustainable food, water and power wasting your time on the computer without being afraid of being shot at any moment by some man who hates you because you where a uniform you wear a uniform you are ordered to wear.
Please be appreciative of what war has brought you and cut the Anti- war crap. Comparatively Australia has done enough if you ask me. Get your assess in gear and maybe we can end the conflict you're bitching about sooner, huh? Just sleep on that if you will.

When you decide to come back with some other argument I shall be waiting with baited breath to assist in your reeducation.

Serving in the marine corps does not put you on top of any other person on this earth, and serving in any military branch does not mean you can flag around more understanding then myself. that fact that you say weak is very disappointing. So people that put human compassion and resolutions before conflict are weak? This involves the world mate. Every one of us. We are the problem and soloutiom for a better world, just as I can easily say "carrying a weapon around the globe to protect the interests of the US government" gives you very little insight to how the world works. The first thing you learn as a solider is to suppress compassion. After all if you had such a trait, you wouldn't be invading countries for oil. Well if it really didn't come down to skin colour or personal gain, you would not be playing chicken with Russia. 

For what? For what reason? one thing you seem to have in common with lots of jihadists is this "dying" for honor. You can live a full life without killing or fighting people and make a difference. 

What a one dimensional comment. I give respect to those who earn it. Just because you are part of the army dosen't warrant respect from me, and shouldn't warrant respect from anyone. And it's sad how you think I'm against you, when I want an end to these mindless conflicts. You no nothing about me yank, and I suggest you don't make such weak assumptions about the kind of person I am. This is why the majority of the world is turning against the U.S. You think you are somehow above the rest of us. disgrace? Well I better go join the marine corp, apparently that's the only way to become a hero and get respect over there you are aware theirs people are aren't marines that actually contribute solutions to this planet, in actual fact? I'm yet to hear of a marine that does more then just uses his title in an arrogant "I'm better then you" way.

true all of those things. But their are ways to solve it. I get angry like any human being, I used to think that fucking up somone that made me mad was the only way to handle problems. But this keeps us stuck in a never ending cycle of conflict. The second you break said conflict, not only does it make you a better person. But it makes them world a better one.

how dare you once again. Actually you know what? The supposed-U.S-marine-who-things-he-is-above-me-because-he-kills-and-was-born-in-america taking jabs at me even though he knows nothing about me is anything but surprising, and thats the only way you will ever feel like your opinions are valid, by assuming I'm nothing more then an Internet troll or hater, and trying to belittle me because I'm not part of the BIG BAD HEROIC army that maintains peace. Sort yourself out yank. And read between the lines rather then just charge in beyonet first to solve problems. 

The US made the rule of taking any declaration of war to the United nations. It broke it. Thus going by the rules it made, that war was illegal. 

you have taught me nothing I already don't know about your slowly dissolving system of thinking. chump.

Here I thought we were having an intelligent conversation about politics.
I wasn't saying I was better than anyone what I was actually trying to convey is that corpses can't speak. If you don't fight you'll end up a corpse, If you do fight then you live long enough to speak.

-We learn to suppress compassion because if we don't then we can't be soldiers and we'll end up as whinny little brats like yourself. We are also taught to suppress hate because they don't want us to kill without reason despite what the leftist media has told you. (Don't believe everything the TV tells you kids!)

-You have probably never had to experience war BECAUSE of soldiers who protect you.

-If you were invaded by a belligerent force or nation, who do you like will come to save you

-Also before you publish a rant it is best to read through it carefully to find grammar errors. (There are over one hundred that I counted. See If you can find them all kids!)

-People that put human compassion and and resolutions before conflict are weak? 
Answer: Yes, because they lack the strength to take a life, and yes it requires a great deal to take another life.

-disgrace? 
Answer: Yes, you are abandoning your allies. Simple as that.

-Well I better go join the marine corp, apparently that's the only way to become a hero and get respect over there you are aware theirs (<----- Wrong use of there it would be there are) people are aren't marines that actually contribute solutions to this planet, in actual fact (<----- All facts are actual, only opinions can be disproven) ? 
Answer: Your country doesn't have a Marine Corps, however I would suggest joining some other branch of the Australian Defense Force. There are many National Heroes that have come out of there. Yes the Armed forces provided stability where the sovereign nation can not.

-Those who use their title as a gain are trying to get women ( I do it all the time- Ladies love a uniformed man) so I'll agree with you there that we can be arrogant. But then again so are other people so I don't see you point.

-Actually you know what?
Answer: Know what you haven't followed up with any continuity thus far and are seemingly blurting out the regular leftist drivel that I loath to hear.



- how dare you once again. Actually you know what? The supposed-U.S-marine-who-things-he-is-above-me-because-he-kills-and-was-born-in-america taking jabs at me even though he knows nothing about me is anything but surprising, and thats the only way you will ever feel like your opinions are valid, by assuming I'm nothing more then an Internet troll or hater, and trying to belittle me because I'm not part of the BIG BAD HEROIC army that maintains peace. Sort yourself out yank. And read between the lines rather then just charge in beyonet first to solve problems. 
Answer: This is all your assumptions and only half right, Please return with valid arguments. This is again nothing but the drivel I mentioned earlier. 

-I give respect to those who earn it. Just because you are part of the army dosen't warrant respect from me, and shouldn't warrant respect from anyone. And it's sad how you think I'm against you, when I want an end to these mindless conflicts.
Answer: Not all conflicts are mindless, some are against evil. Not just propaganda saying things are evil, but true evil. I have seen neighbors hack each other to death because of different religion. You know where? India. 

But their are ways to solve it. I get angry like any human being, I used to think that fucking up somone that made me mad was the only way to handle problems. But this keeps us stuck in a never ending cycle of conflict. The second you break said conflict, not only does it make you a better person. But it makes them world a better one.
Answer: I find your Idealism amusing. The fact that you think human beings can just hold hands and make up after war. Peace time fuels hatred especially from the losing side. It fuels revenge. Break one start another.

The US made the rule of taking any declaration of war to the United nations. It broke it. Thus going by the rules it made, that war was illegal.
Answer:The international legal rules governing the use of force take as their starting point Article 2(4) of the U.N. Charter, which prohibits any nation from using force against another. The charter allows for only two exceptions to this rule: when force is required in self-defense or when the Security Council authorizes the use of force to protect international peace and security unless of a mutual decision by a majority of its members to attack, leading to a bypass of International law making the conflict legal until resolved by the Security Council.

They still remain silent.

If it is so bad and illegal why don't you try to stop it? No one seems to care about if it is or isn't just that it's there.  It is Human nature to fight. You can't change instinct. 


I enjoy these arguments for they are amusing. Please continue, however please be more mature this time. It ruins the mood of the argument when you act like a child. Hope to hear from you soon my friend and please feel free to critique my grammar as I have done yours.

Intelligence? Theirs hardly any in talking to you. You basically just refuse to look at my opinion and try to state thst I'm missing the point. You seem to think anything that dosen't agree with you is a threat. Your twisted morals will only isolate you from others. 

Oh good lord you are a walking contradiction mate. That fact that you have been taught, to suppress feelings like that basically means that you simply have no right to say a word about conflict. As you have been 'told' to hold it in for thehe purpose of killing.

you keep flashing this "people-like-mate-hate-veterans-and-don't-care-for-them" crap and it's really proving how little you know about the complications of said topic. I never asked them to go to war, I never asked them to stand up and kill people, and I'm certainly not anti veterans. And the fact I have to say this every time even when I make it clear i'm not against soliders proves that you are simply using an invalid argument to pull away from the entire point of this argument. Which is war cannot be justified and it's never used for good, only for personal gain. 

I shall spell how I want when I want ;)  
btw you also simply dismiss my argument as a rant. More proof how you keep making assumptions and refuse to even acknowledge any other alternative. Classic military thinking.

different kinds of strengh mate, if you judge a persons strengh by killing people, it shows how narrow minded you are. You must have been brainwashed pretty good into thinking that how problems are solved ;)

abadonkng my allies? Keep in mind the only reason the US gave a shit about us was when they found out we could be lost to communism. No such thing as allies in that aspect, all governments are paranoid about other goverments. I love my country mate. And I'm not abandoning it. I't already lost its innocence thanks to Geroge w bush forcing us into your war on terror, the U.S Govermonet has created this never ending war and never ending hysteria of foreigners coming to kill us. You use this for justification of war. 

I can agree. You don't need a uniform to be an arrogant jerk ;) I'm a film director and I can tell you with full honesty that theatre actors are some of the most arrogant people on this planet lol

left and right are equally fucked. While I'll admit I hate republicans more as they just don't admit that theirs problems in the world. (Plus like you they seem to make jabs at people personally, why exactly they do that is still a mystery) 

same me with your drivel mate. :P

evil? serious? You tell me not to use simplistic terms like peace and you go ahead and use evil? evil is a word we use when we try to make sense of the human condition, but we only use it when it dosen't conflict with our own ideals. Evil is a useless word unless you stick to fiction. If you want to look at pure evil? take a deep long look at your countries goverment. Take a look at globalisation, take a look at the big issues, the really big issues that are changing the world. Don't just look at things through words like good and evil. Or you will never be able to comprehend the day you find out you're wrong.

the fact you think that killing and war is the only way to solve problems is all the more amusing. We have tried war for thousands of years, nothing has changed, we haven't tried understanding or simply conveying a common understand we all share. (That's right, just bring down peace as everyone holding hands. You tell yourself it's hard and that cheesy so you stay in the job ;) ) the loosing side. Once you expand yourbeliefs you will see that the causes of the problems you talk of is war. 

god bless Murica ;) the vote for conflict in Iraq ended when China, Russia, and France voted no. Thus it ended the debate. Also remeber how the bush administration sold us garbage about nuclear weapons and the iminit danger iraq had. Which proved to be completly false. 

What at do you think people like me are trying to do!? we do more then just sit here and post online. But online and the Internet is the one true place where information can be shared uncensored. Every time an independent organisation puts up documents and reports of war crimes committed. It's either completly ignored by mainstream media, or the people charged are pardoned by the goverment. (David Cameron vetoed and pardoned the reports of tony blairs role in Iraq and the potential crimes committed. 

people that control information of the world use this argument too, "why don't you do something?" Why don't they? They have the power to actually prove these wrong. Yet they just block the information. Very suspisious. 

I care are about every conflict that's currently happening. But if you expect me to sit here and solve all of the worlds problems right here and now? That's just childish. 

I'm taking this argument quite well giving the personal jabs you take at me. Try not to sterotype people who see more to life them war as lazy trolls.

We may be a democracy but the world isn't. Also while we are a democracy it is because the people of this country agreed to be one within it, however the people of this country have not agreed to be part of a world democracy and therefore is not bound by what other countries want(AKA the UN). We had every right to do what we did because there is no such thing as not haveing the right. The world is a harsh and cruel place and every one has the right to kill what ever and whom ever they want or need to make their way in it. Now society has articail rules on it, but in practice they still have no controle over people's actions. Rights can never be taken away, they can only be supressed, and no one has the RIGHT to life. They do have the right to fight to live though.

Despite my general distaste for present-day America, I do place some stock in political accuracy.

I'm sure you've heard of a quaint if altogether obscured state called Alaska, yes? Well, in Alaska, and most people neglect to mention this in all the middle eastern hysteria, there lies an oil reserve that on record is officially one of the largest in the world. Thus far, America has overlooked this substantial energy source__encouraged vehemently by Middle Eastern lobbyists NOT to utilize this natural asset to America, but to instead adhere to their international commitments I.E. bailing out the political cess pool that is Iraq.

America isn't fighting in Iraq because they personally "need" anything. They're doing because it's economically/politically advantageous to do it.
In short they're fighting there because somebody with a loud voice and deep pockets wants us there. Having said that, do I personally have any qualms about us preserving our invested interest over there? No. Speaking from a practical standpoint, every nation has to get in bed with someone they'd just as soon see choke on their own vomit. It's just the sad reality.

If you ask me its a good thing we went to war in iraq !
For starters we were able to free an opressed people and are finishing the job now!
Here in the UK people ask why are we still in Iraq? I ask them why start a job you dont intend to finish?
When Iraq has a stable government and a self supplied milatary force we can leave but not till then.
Sure we out gunned them and our thecnology is far more advanced giving us the upper hand but thats war for you. During WWII Nazi Germany were the most advanced fighting force in the world. But this didnt stop us and we prevailed its not who has the biggest gun but who has the will to carry on. You only fail when you stop!

I find this really offensive as a soldier having served in Iraq, theres much less killing of innocent people then you think, theres been dozens if not hundreds of schools and hospitals build here, and we're working our best to protect these people you ungrateful ignorant piece of shit..

yeah dude, it doesnt seem like you actually opose the war in any of your comics. you simply state the obvious truth which is your army is bigger. so even though i disagree with that mave guy, he's right. this is more of a satire on technical fights.

One problem with this cartoon. Iraq has much less oil than people think. Just because it is in the Middle East doesn't mean that it has oil. That was the reason Saddam invaded Kuwait. No, Iraq is the most strategically perfect nation there. If you look at Iraq geographically, whomever has a presence there can not only assist Israel very easily in a time of crisis, they can strike at Syria and Iran, which border Iraq. Plus, it had a weak, unsupported gov't so it was easiest to topple. We went into Iraq thinking more of using it as a place to stage a war against Iran.
