blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Ya Know,

2.21.2008

Ya Know,

. . . the sad part is, in this day and time, I have some doubts as to whether this is really true. Yeah, it probably is. But I wouldn't put it past the U.S. to lie to other nations about our defense skills in order to "protect us." Because everything is fair game so long as it can be justified in protecting the U.S. from evil-doers. Right?

Edit: Well, the U.S. did film it (albeit with a Sony Handycam from Walmart) but I don't know why this video didn't make it to the morning news shows.

Edit: Ok, call me a nut. But I could have led off with Obama being the Anti-Christ.

Man you are so right. How I long for the good old days when Jimmy Carter (the original liberal weenie) diluted our military to the point where a band of Iranian thugs were able to attack our soveriegn embassy and hold our citizens hostage with impunity.
If you really think being strong in this world is such a bad thing, you better get yourself a Koran and study up.

In defense of our country? Whatever works!

You bet! Anything is absolutely fair game when our people's safety is threatened. Go Navy!

The Bush's administration's protecting us is going to lead us all to being in a gulog!

Shooting down a object for which you know its trajectory, speed etc is basic physics.

Now hitting something you don't know these variables about is a boondogle of another color.

It's basic government to protect citizens. However, all efforts need to be vetted, by the other two branches of government, something this admin hasn't done.
They have violated the constitution with regularity and we are actually less "free" than we have ever been in history.

And finally these "efforts" need to be measured by financial prudence, not by how rich it will make our friends and enrich our portfolio.

While I believe the above, I doubt the DEMS will be any different should they somehow stumble into the White House.

Bottom line, we're screwed!

Barry doesn't deserve any respect with idiotic comments like that. Barry you seem pretty normal most of the time, but sometimes you go off the deep end. Four years in the army (you're not tough enough for the marines) would do you some good.

I agree. Don't these satellites - especially the spy satellites - have an explosive on board that can be set off if something goes wrong?

It's so weird how you Libs are so dang distrusting of the government and the military. Do you have to have Hillary or Obama to tell you that it happened so you believe it? Is there anything that would make you believe it? What's with the paranoia? Is it the Bush administration or a general distrust of goverment and military? I know, I know... you'll say "But Bush lied about WMDs!!" I'm just asking...

You do know that the ground-to-air technology has existed for awhile, right i.e. the Patriot missile that we all though were so awesome during Desert Storm when they were shoot down SCUDs. So, why would you doubt the motives to shoot this thing down? It was a spy satellite with sensitive instruments onboard. Oh, but you probably want people hostile to the US to have our technology, right? What's wrong with spending a couple million to blow this thing up? Is it really going to impact you economically?

That line of thinking is just ridiculous to me. Then again, I like when things blow up.

Obama The Antichrist sounds spot on to me!

I think that might have been as someone else said,"Barry sometimes rolls a hand grenade out there to see how we react." Hope that's the case on this post. He couldn't really believe that nonsense could he?

A couple of points:
1. Hitting this satellite in a known low earth orbit is infinitely easier than hitting a ballistic missile (with no notice of launch and no knowledge of its intended target). At least this shot didn't fail (after they waited for many days for optimum conditions for the shot). I’ve seen videos of the hit (but the same people who insist the moon landings were faked may claim this video is fake, too).
2. There was no compelling reason to hit this satellite. The equipment on board would be either burned or smashed to bits coming back down. There have been several other old satellites that have re-entered the atmosphere with the same fuel on board without any tragic consequences. Parts of the thing could fall on your head and do significant damage - but your chances of being hit by a rock truck on 380 are magnitudes greater.

Bottom line: a publicity stunt for the American public - and the governments of China and Russia.

Yeah sure, we should have sent up another rocket with video to prove that the first one shot down the sattelite. Then you would say it was all created at Dreamworks. You doubters are a bunch of dumbass jerks!

Anyone who has spent more than a couple moments in a pew or reading the Bible would understand that it's foolish to think someone is the anti-Christ. If you are inclined to believe in such, then you should educate yourself enough to realize that your scripture is quite clear that we will NOT KNOW the identity of said anti-Christ until such time as the stuff is already hitting the fan.

When exactly did this shift happen where anti-government, neo-liberal conservatives believe every ridiculous thing the government says? You non-doubters are nothing but sheep. or maybe sheeple.

So we have airheads here wondering if the Navy faked the shootdown while the American embassy in Belgrade is being invaded by protesters. The Marines are our only embassy guards anywhere, so are they fakes too? I thought they excelled at looking pretty and guarding embassies.

LOL,

I feel sorry for people who cannot allow themselves to have one iota of faith in their government.

Please do not be scared of your shadow when you awake this morning. It might be a MIB-blackhelicopter-grassyknollshooter-alien-fakemoonlanding-govpulledoff911 agent waiting to kill you.

*sheesh*
