How many more?

Journal Sentinel:
Guardsman is killed in Iraq
Cedarburg native was there less than a week

A Wisconsin Army National Guardsman from Cedarburg who arrived in Iraq within the last week was killed on his first mission in the country, his family said Monday.

Stephen William Castner, 27, who was with the 121st Field Artillery Regiment, joined the Guard last year after previously serving in the Air Force for four years, his father, Stephen L. Castner, said in a telephone interview late Monday night.

The guardsman's family was informed of his death Monday afternoon when military officials came to the family's home.

You liberals must not anything about history. Why don't you find out how many Americans died during Iwo Jima, or the first day of D-Day, or Gettysburg? You somehow think that just because this soldier was there one week that it diminishes the sacrifice he made in service to his country. I also have news for you. BUSH DIDN'T LIE about WMD's. There were 500 chemical weapons found since 2003. You liberals is why groups like Hamas and Hezbullah are emboldened to act fearlessly, because you people are weak in courage, bankrupt in morals, empty of intelligence, and full of contempt for the things that made this country great.

Wow. Did you write that all by yourself GWC? What do the deaths of our brave soldiers during Iwo Jima, D-Day or Gettysburg have to do with Iraq? I find it interesting that your mind isn't able to grasp the difference between chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Tear gas is considered a chemical weapon, while mustard gas in a long range missile is a wmd. Are you following me so far? Secondly, how can you tell me that groups like Hamas and Hezbullah are emboldened by liberals? Are you serious, are you a member of Hamas, are you feeling emboldened right now? Listen, before you go blasting XOFF about being morally bankrupt and empty of whatever you should check his service record from the Vietnam War. That’s right you absent minded right-wing radical, he is a veteran. Next time you should do some research.

Sure, I'm linking to Juan Cole, so GWC won't consider this credible, but the link contains a quote from the Defense Department which clearly states the 500 'chemical weapons' Santorum talked about recently were degraded and no longer weapons quality - and this has been known for several years, despite Santorum bringing this back into the spotlight recently.

Sorry, forgot the link.

... but if we can save just one life ... and if it doesn't involve George Bush, isn't it worth it?

We thank Guardsman Castner for his service because his efforts and his sacrifice - because he has saved countless others in in Iraq and the world.

XOff on the other hand believes that we should pull out and let evil rule. He is short-sighted and wrong.

As we all know, "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Which is why XOff wants us all to do nothing.

Xout -- I think the whole reason Xoff writes this column is so that you won't triumph.
