Heaven help us
We've lost over 1,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen in Iraq. There have been somewhere above 10,000 Iraqis killed there as well.
And these idiots are arguing about the timing of IBM typewriter production runs in 1972?

Not idiots, but truth seekers.
In regards to the 1,000+ soldiers lost in combat in Iraq, while I cherish all life; that is a relatively small price to pay to promote freedom's foothold in the Middle East. The USA has sacrificed far greater for far less before. I'm not even going to get in to the facts and stats behind the number of Iraqi lives that were pissed away by Saddam during his tenure of power. I assure you it was far greater than 10,000.
Regarding the 'documents' supposedly authored by Lt. Col. Killian? They're fake. Garbage. A work of fiction. Cockamamie. The DNC's opposition researcher (read: assassin) has managed to put the DNC, CBS and The Kerry Campaign all in a real bind.
Those 'idiots' are simply ruling out the possibility of Lt. Col. Killian's office owning a $20,000 word processor which was the only production machine capable of producing proportionally spaced typefaces and superscript at the time.
And what, exactly, would you do differently than Bush? Pull the troops out of Iraq? Ha. That notion is laughable at this point. You would not have sent them in the first place? Or, you would not have sent them in the first place if you knew what you know now about WMDs. Well I'm sure Britain, Russia, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and a host of other countries have the same feeling.
We're not in Iraq for the WMDs anyways (those have long since been in Syria), that was just a reason to get the troops out of port. We're there to militarily land lock and surround Iran. They're the real problem. We get Iran, that means we cut off weapons flow from Iran to Iraq to Syria to Lebanon to Egypt and then to the world.

Wulfgar, you'd have to ask him. He's a first-time commenter here. He's obviously a true believer.
Just thought I'd give an update on the point I was making about Iran; Read: http://news.ft.com/cms/s/eed88be8-0741-11d9-9672-00000e2511c8.html
