Nice job, ladies and gents. Oorah. ;-7

Oorah? Puleeze.

The Army goes Hooah.

The Marines goes Oorah.

You went, "Damn it, the maid's late again."

Eileen Coles said...

I think the maid just showed up, actually. ;-7 Now get to work, my dishes need washed.

And yes, the Marines, to include my husband, say Oorah. I'm allowed. Screw you.

Y'all done good, Sister-woman--

You're not a gentleman. You're a sexist pig. It wasn't an offer, pig.

coles, if it was, that's an offer, it's one I'd refuse even from The Godfather, even on the day of his daughter's wedding.

I love seeing military spouses acting like they rate something for laying on their backs.

Eileen Coles said...

I love to see military sexist pigs acting like they rate something just because they have a swingin' cod. It's one reason why while I was serving for six years active duty I wouldn't even THINK about marrying one. Tied to that sexist mindset? Haha, shove it. My man treats me right. You sexist asscracks couldn't treat a woman right if you had a gun pointed at your head, which is probably why the likes of you ends up having to pay for it - because no one would ever get near you for the joy of it.

Lol, you seriously think that you were really in the military? Crazy, when I was in Fallujah scraping bone fragments out the waffle of my boot - I was in the military. You think you were in the military because you put on a uniform? Stop using your so called military experience as a qualifier for anything, you weren't really in the military.

Eileen Coles said...

Right. No one else ever saw combat just because you did. No one else ever really served. What bullshit.

You know absolutely nothing about my military service, and if you get your prideful jollies talking about "bone fragments in your boot" then it's definitely staying that way, psycho.

Anonymous said...

Then tell me Eileen, have you ever fought in combat? And no, I'd never say that nobody else has experienced what I have - I was there with a battalion of Marines, we all took a bite out of the shit sandwich. I guess I don't know anything about military service - I define it as combating this country's enemies. By that I mean killing them, not shuffling paperwork or kicking boxes around in the supply shack. Have you ever noticed that when people think of the military they think of guns, knives and helmets? Not paperweights and ergonomically correct seats.

Eileen Coles said...

To honor my command sponsor who died on Flight 103 I voluntarily extended my tour one year to serve in Desert Storm. When the call went out for personnel I volunteered for combat duty in Ankara and my TDY was requested specifically by name by a full bird who was one of the intel people I'd supported at a previous duty station.

However I was denied that opportunity by a sexist pig contractor working for Sterling Software, who told me that he was going to lie and tell my command that I was incapable of performing the job, because I should be home "baking cookies for my man".

To this day I regret not yielding to the temptation to break his jaw or give him a black eye and asking him to tell them who he got it from. The correctional custody would have been worth it. A person should not be denied combat duty based on gender, or have to fight her own troops AND the enemy just for the right to do the job.

In closing, you are a neanderthalic fucktard if you think combat duty is the only thing that defines military service. All of us are trained for it and all of us are ready for it. My family military history goes back three generations and spans all four branches of service. Picking bones out of your boots is nothing to brag about, especially in this war. Get some mental help.

Eileen Coles said...

I don't have time to wring out your brain completely today, caveman, but I'll give you a hint: I worked in 2WTC and I'm alive today because I trusted my instincts about another sexist pig and his attempts to get me installed at Cantor Fitzgerald. This government at BEST saw those attacks coming and Mr. "My Pet Goat" did nothing about it.

Speaking of Mr. "Mission Accomplished", maybe if you concern yourself with military wannabes you should take a nice long look at his sorry lying ass. He went AWOL for a year and had his rich daddy cover it up, just like his DWIs and his flirtation with cocaine. That's your commander in chief, asscrack. Are you proud? Shit, at least when I enlisted I showed up for work.

Ah ha, and there it is folk - 9/11 was an inside job. This group just gets more and more credible by the minute! Thats convenient though, because now the islamofacists are the victims.

Eileen Coles said...

Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. That is a proven fact. The bones you pick out of your boots belonged to innocent people trying to defend their home against an unwarranted and illegal invasion.

Credibility? Oh please. This military has lost all credibility from the CINC on down. The man sits on his ass reading "My Pet Goat" when he should have been scrambling fighters.

So you know how to kill people. Do you think that makes you special? Bullshit. All it makes you like is just like the people you claim to be protecting us from. Who's protecting us from YOU, ass clown? You have such a distorted view of reality that you'd probably turn on the American people themselves if you were ordered to do it by that psycho in the White House! "For their own good", of course...

Anonymous said...

Ok, we'll use some deductive reasoning here. 9/11 was perpetrated by islamofacists, terrorists without borders. Iraq had the policy of training young civilian men to hijack airplanes, make explosives and execute suicide bombings - they even had facilities for it built on the grounds of an old biological warfare research site. This is all documented and backed up by Iraqi defectors. http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/world/iraq/salman_pak.htm

So if we're going to execute a war on terrorism why wouldn't we take out a country that actively supports terrorist with training, explosives, housing, and money. No WMDs were found, but terrorist training camps were. And those skull fragments that I proudly scraped from the bottom of my boot where most likely not from an Iraqi, Fallujah was full of foreign fighters before we began clearing the city out. Some of the best snipers they had were from the Balkans - I've found foreign cash and IDs on their bodies, as well as military weapons that were not in the Iraqi Army's armories. These people came not to defend Iraq, but to kill Americans. I won't lie, I was happy to kill those people - militant islamists were there to defend a repressive and inherently evil religion, they are taught that westerners will convert to islam or die.

Knowing how to kill people doesn't make me special, but doing it well does. I'm proud that I was able to use my skills for such a mission, killing terrorists. Are you afraid that the US military will one day be turned against it's citizens? Thats a healthy fear, its been done before. But if you're afraid of that, maybe you should voice your support for the relaxation of gun control - thats the only thing that would keep the government in check. The only other option is getting rid of the military, which would be America's last mistake.

My view of reality is crystal clear, you should worry about yourself. You folks think that when we capture terrorists they'll submit all their plans without being strongarmed, or that we went to Iraq for oil.

Eileen Coles said...

I don't have time to wring out your brain, but once again, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, there were no WMDs, you have killed innocent people. Your view of reality is with your head firmly planted up your ass. With "protection" from such as you I don't NEED terrorists. I consider every dollar paid into your salary to be a ripoff and a waste. It's not that you can't understand what you're doing it's wrong, it's that you won't. You are a war criminal fully complicit with the crimes of this administration.

Try to pull your bullshit lies on someone who hasn't been there and done that and KNOWS military brainwashing BS when she sees it.

Anonymous said...

So your only response is to ignore the facts and say that I'm brainwashed, I don't think my point could have been proven any better - thanks. You're the one thats suffering mental illness, so dedicated to what you want to believe that you'll ignore the facts.

Eileen Coles said...

The FACTS - for the THIRD time - are that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, there were no WMDs, and you have killed innocent people.

The day WILL come when these are facts that you will have to face, and on that day may your God have mercy on what passes for your soul. I pity you, blind fool.

Your web site is full of it and so are you. There was no reason to invade Iraq. Go ahead and pull another random web page out of your ass - anybody can pull one up that says whatever they want to say.

The fact is, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 and you're gonna swing for war crimes.

Ok, so if you don't believe this site, you don't believe the media because they frequently refer to it for facts. And I doubt that you would believe the government, since they're inherently evil right? How about a Cpl in the Marine Corps that was there and scoured an abandon training camp: foxnews.com/story/0,2933,84291,00.html No? Won't believe me of course, so who would you believe? You're so invested in your hate for the US that you're letting it blind you.

Eileen Coles said...

Once again: Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

The story's not changing there. That's the way it is.

Training camps are not WMDs. Iraq only got fucked up AFTER we invaded. What proof is there that these camps (if they even matter) are pre-9/11? Why weren't they mentioned in the original reasons for invading the country? Why did we have this elaborate cooking of the intelligence books regarding WMDs, to include the administration outing the identity of a CIA agent just because her husband wouldn't go along with the lie?

You people are so full of shit. Stop wasting your time trying to get me to take you seriously. It's not happening.

"However, two defectors from Iraqi intelligence stated that they had worked for several years at the secret Iraqi government camp, which had trained Islamic terrorists in rotations of five or six months since 1995. Training activities including simulated hijackings carried out in an airplane fuselage [said to be a Boeing 707] at the camp."

There, they were there before 9/11. Now to address the reason we're there: take into consideration, this idea was formulated while deployed to Iraq by somebody with a warped sense of reality who also happens to be a war criminal and murderer of innocent terrorist. Iraq is training terrorist. They used to have biological and chemical weapons - they have used chemical weapons. They have repeatedly fired on American aircraft enforcing the no-fly zone. They have attempted to procure equipment to develop nuclear weapons. Saddam pays the families of suicide bombers in Israel in an attempt to recruit more bombers. These are good reasons to invade, but the best - which wasn't stated for obvious reason was to send a message to Iran, I more serious problem. Iran has been working on developing a nuke for a while now, they have more advanced weaponry then Iraq, anti-ship cruise missiles in particular purchased from France I believe. Now that Iran sees the troubles we are having in Iraq with their well funded and equipped insurgency, as well as negative media coverage they feel emboldened enough to declare their progress in developing nuclear weapons. Did we hit a dry hole in Iraq with the WMDs? Yup - sure did. Did we find terrorist training camps? Yup. Did we stop Saddam's funding of terrorist bombers and God knows what else? Yup.

Now you say Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, well WMDs didn't have anything to do with 9/11 either. To attack because of the suspicion of WMDs would be a preemptive strike. To attack because of terrorist training camps would also be a preemptive strike in order to prevent another 9/11. In the end Islamic terrorists are Islamic terrorists, I don't care where they come from or if all the different groups are working in concert. What they all have in common is the fact that they hate America. They hate us because we support Israel, they hate our open society, and they hate Christianity (76.5% of Americans identify themselves as Christians).

Finally, I'm not trying to get you to take me seriously Eileen - I just think its funny to see you get riled up when you're presented with facts that can't be ignored. Theres also the off chance that somebody who isn't as mentally disturbed as you will read the facts and think "Hmm, maybe I should put less stock in the feelings I get when I see the horrors of war splashed on my TV screen, and think more about WTF is going on in the world with Islamofacist - maybe I don't want to be associated with the defenders of terrorist who would deny me my freedoms and life in a heartbeat."

Eileen Coles said...

Sounds to me if you look at the typing ratios that you're the one getting riled up, asscrack. The Iraqis didn't have a peashooter left after Desert Storm. If a bunch of them wanted to play cowboys and indians with what was left I can hardly care about that. They weren't a viable threat. The 9/11 terrorists were the RICH Arabs - our supposed allies and the ones who are all kissyface with Bush and Cheney.

So, did the birds that sang the song you wanted to hear do so before, after, or during torture? Were there some cool screams to go with your fond memories of picking bones out of your boots, psycho?

This is a terrific video of a fun and creative action drawing attention to one of this country's many crimes. Good work!

For supporters who read the vitriolic comments that quickly follow just about any CODEPINK blogs or video blogs, I thought it would be worth explaining that these come from Freepers,

Fhttp://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/browsereepers,

rightwing thugs who evidently have nothing much to do except harass CODEPINK. Working with the Washington Times, the Mooney newspaper in D.C., they've got a campaign going against CODEPINK, which just calls to mind Gandhi's famous quote: "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." If Gandhi was right, CODEPINK's near victory. Ignore these jerks.

I don't think I need to address you anymore eileen, any rational person that reads the exchange is going to realize you're a crazy bitch that doesn't know what shes talking about. As for being from freerepublic, I'm not - this group actually harassed my employer not to long ago so I've been documenting all the members in order to deny you access next time around. I will admit though Eileen, I couldn't help but post when I saw your first comments - I've seen you use your "military" experience as credentials before, and I just had to let you know you didn't experience shit and you rate nothing.

Dear Anonymous: I'm not Eileen, of course. I haven't met her. But as for you not being a Freeper, I think you're a liar, and in any case, you anonymous cowards all look alike, don't you.

Well Carol, I don't blame you for being suspicious of me - I mean, if I was running an extreme left forum I would anticipate people from the opposite side of the spectrum coming in and challenging me. But the truth is I've never been to the site you mentioned, I can't think of a reason to go to what I assume is a far right board - I'm already a conservative, so whats the point? And why would I post my name on here, to build credibility? The facts I've mentioned and sources I've cited stand just fine on their own. Am I afraid of retaliation? Not at all, I just don't want my name associated with a group of people that are being denied entry into Canada. Canada won't even take you, that speaks volumes.

Thanks for letting us know that you're not just an anonymous asscrack, but you're from Crackwater itself.

You're the one who thinks that it's cool to kill people and pick bones out of your boots, so the statement about me being a crazy bitch coming from the likes of you is a hoot.

You pretend that you're doing this for "Amurrikah" but you're just doing it for the money. You don't work for me and my interests. You don't observe the rule of law. You are working for some of the craziest bitches on the planet - rich bitches who believe that "might makes right" and "the end justifies the means".

I enjoy tearing what passes for your self-justification for your war crimes to pieces in this forum. It's easy, legal, free, and allows me to show the world that on a level playing field and under civilized terms you ain't got shit to work with. If you had to fight fair, you'd lose.

You're afraid of Code Pink. You view us as some sort of threat - and when it comes to your psychotic way of life you're right to do so, because all you know how to do is make people fear. We know how to make people think, and there's nothing you can do to stop us. We are free, and don't EVEN pretend to flatter yourself that it's because of you. We're free because of generations of far more noble American warriors whose honor you have tarnished. You are just a pissant mercenary, fighting a prefabricated war for the most venal of reasons.

Eileen Coles said...

Carol, while it is inadvisable for people to engage the right wing in person because they have agendas of intimidation and violence, they cannot pursue those agendas in this forum.

They need to be engaged here because their intimidation tactics completely fail here. Their talking points (or in some cases screeching points) can be logically addressed and destroyed. This is a place where their attacks can be turned against them and they can be shut down. Who knows one or two of them might even see the light.

I've already shut a few of them down. They are learning - well, at least some of them are - that this forum is not a place they want to come if they want to control a discussion forum and intimidate it's people. It's a great opportunity to show both them and people sympathetic to Code Pink what we are really about.

Anonymous said...

Nope, still wrong - I don't work for Blackwater and my combat experience was gained as a Marine in 3/5 when we burned down the city of Fallujah. So I've tarnished the honor of past warriors huh? You mean the guys that firebombed Tokyo? Or went island hopping in the pacific using flame throwers to clear out caves? How about the atomic bombs? War is ugly bitch, I haven't tarnished anything.

And no you haven't addressed any of my justifications - you still haven't addressed the issue of Iraq's terrorist training camps existing and being used in 1995.

You got me though Eileen, I didn't think I'd be coming back to talk to you, but I love seeing you squirm out of having to actually think.

Someday they are going to lock you people up and shove some severe medication in your ass.

You first, Marie. :)

Eileen Coles said...

Yeah, war is ugly, and you're a big part of that, pig. You do tarnish the honor of those who went before you because you are a war criminal.

You are the one allergic to thinking. Just keep swallowing the fascist kool aid, but don't try to share it here or I will keep shutting you down. You're a laugh riot, bragging about being able to kill people and trying to tell OTHER folks they're crazy.

Who do you really think you're kidding? Even if they did have "terrorist" camps in Iraq, which I highly doubt (and it's likely you're listing Hussein's military as "terrorists", because to an asscrack like you anybody in a turban who isn't a billionaire qualifies), wouldn't that have been listed as one of the reasons to invade? Instead they came up with this utter BULLSHIT about imaginary WMD's. You have yet to address the fact that they had to lie to get into Iraq at all for all your fancy posturing. You lose again, pig.

Marie's Two Cents said...

Well Gee Eileen,

Maybe I happen to know a few things about Iraq that you dont because I had a loved one over there already.

Go ahead call my loved one a baby killer, and I'll tell you he never had to fire a shot!

It's time you people quit making fools of yourselves and support the Troops that have given YOU the right to protest, speak your piece, and make fools of yourselves in Public.

Shut me down? Ha! Pfft!

Here's one for you Eileen,

He has some persectives on Iraq you might be interested in :-)

Eileen Coles said...

Marie I don't have to shut you down. You're doing a fine job yourself.

Our freedom of speech is what you complain about the most, yet you pretend you had anything to do with it. I earned my own right to that with six years of honorable active duty service. I don't need the likes of you and yours pretending that there was an excuse to invade Iraq and somehow twisting that into "protecting my freedom of speech".

Iraq did nothing to us then and can do nothing to us now. They neither were nor are any threat to our "freedom of speech" or way of life. There were no WMDs. We got them all the first time. I was there.

I hope that your husband doesn't end up dying for the lie, but the cold hard truth of the matter is he's fighting for it. I have no interest in drinking the kool aid. I already know a lot more about this military than a lot of people would like, and I had my eyes opened wide when I was in.

Mark my words - the day is going to come when the truth of what this administration has perpetrated in the name of "freedom" will be brought to light.

On that day remember that I said this: as sorry as I feel for you now, I'll pity you even more then, because you will have to live with your part in it the same way that the "Good Germans" must live with their memories. And that goes for all of you, because as deluded as you are, at heart you are not bad people, and you joined up for the same reasons I did.

Just remember I said it when the time comes. And depend upon it like your next breath - THAT DAY IS COMING.

coles, on Code Pink's own website is posted an article from Vietnam veteran who is anti-war and an amputee about the "cost of war". And in that piece, he says never ever protest at a military base because the troops don't make policy. Take it to the politicians. And he says don't ever protest at a military hospital. Yet you do.

And you let VFP leader Kevin McCarron hold a sign that read, "Maimed For A Lie". Even if you believe "Maimed For A Lie", why would you ever decide to hold it where the wounded could see it as they ride the stretcher bus into Reed?

Why is it that it took pressure from the American public to get that sign dropped? Why did Code Pink allow it for even a second?

I'm curious as to your take on that.
