Deployments have been extended to 15 months. I understand this. I know why it has to be done and why it makes sense. I consider us lucky that we even have deployment "ends", unlike in WWII when they fought until they were dead or the war ended, whichever came first. I know all of these things logically, and I accept them as a consequence of war. But. I know what my husband was like after 13 months of non-stop work. I heard his voice around the ninth month, right before R&R, when he sounded robotic and detached. I felt his monotony and f*ck-it attitude in every conversation we had. That's a long time to be at war. I feel sorry for these soldiers who will have to ball up and tough it out.

1 Yeah tell us again what a success he "SURGE" is, why if it were the success the neo-conmen claimed it were wouldn't it follow that tour lengths would be reduced, rather than extended???

2 No Bubba, it wouldn't follow. Get a clue before you make wild leaps of logic. A then B doesn't mean A caused B. And by the way, as soon as someone reads the namecalling, they stop taking you seriously.

3 Hey Ted, uhhhh what name calling? Neo-Conmen? After the lies and bullshit they have spread for the last six years? I think labeling them "con-men" is generous.

4 In other words: yes, you were resorting to name-calling.

5 As the wife of one of those extended soldiers...I think it is bunch of BS as well. Bush loves to point out success, but each one of his so-call success ends up costing someone a price. Soldier gets longer tours, Vets get reimbursed reduced for travel to and from VA appointments and the middle class generally gets screwed. I realize WWII soldiers stuck it out til death or the war ended but this is not 1945 and with advancements in weapons, training and strategy .....can't we get it right!

6 Hey Patrick if I call you a clueless fucktard, that would be name calling, neo-conmen is, as the military wife(Vonn) pointed out not out of bounds. Oh btw you clueless fucktard you have a DD-214 yet, if not STFU troll.

7 ...ah, yes. Same old Brain. Thanks, I think you've adequately demonstrated Ted's point about your behavior leading to people not taking you seriously. Good job.

8 Frankly Patrick I do not give a flying fuck if you under 35 conservatards take me seriously, you are all horribly inexperienced at life. As I mentioned before show me a DD-214, and I might respect you, I did my time asshole 4, May '77, thru 11 Apr, 83, what were your DOE, and DOS, huh? Oh yeah an MOS/AFSC might be a nice piece of information also my AFSC was 39150, so there you go a challenge to you.

9 You seem to be under the delusion that I desire your respect. Oddly enough, judging by your bluster and general behavior, I tend to picture you as a loudmouthed teenager. Not the sort of person whose respect I wish to command. You've managed to make yourself look even more pathetic than last time. How far someone can fall... from Maintenance Analysis Specialist to essentially an unhinged net.bully trying to intimidate people into silence. Alas, the only way Brain can "silence" people is when they tire of responding to his bluster.

10 Alas Patrick refuses to bother to answer my question, which only reinforces my suspicion he is a cheeto eating college frat rat slob "fighting a war of words" from his mommy's and daddy's basement. As for my respect, you probably will never earn it, which is why I give you the written equivalent of the back of my hand across your punk mouth. Like I said you fucking chicken-shit chicken hawk post up some DD-214 data, and I might speak to you in a different manner, until then go look at some free porn and continue jerking off maggot.

11 ...ah, we've reached the "incoherent rage" portion of Brain's Master Debating style. Not that I expected anything less, mind you.

Posted by: Patrick Chester at April 18, 2007 02:24 PM (MKaa5)

12 Debate, is that what you think I am attempting here?? I don't waste my time debating simpletons like you, I just call you out on your fucking bullshit.

Posted by: BubbaBoBobBrain at April 18, 2007 07:04 PM (BR9zA)

13 Oh, I figured you were here only for attempting to inflict abuse upon people. Thanks for the confirmation.
