    Re: Has he no shame?

    From the article by Robert Mackey (emphasis mine):
    Mr. Limbaugh began his discussion of the group — described by my colleagues Thom Shanker and Rick Gladstone as “a notorious renegade group that has terrorized villagers in at least four countries with marauding bands that kill, rape, maim and kidnap with impunity” — by explaining that the “Lord” referred to in their name is not someone named Lord, but “God.” He said:
    Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the combat Lord’s Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lord’s Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lord’s Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them. Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians. It means God.
    What Limbaugh actually said, per the transcript (emphasis mine):
    LRA is Lord's Resistance Army. And it doesn't mean God's resistance army. Lord is some Lord, some guy. A "Defense Department official tells ABC’s Luis Martinez at the Pentagon that the U.S. troops will be in Africa 'for a few months in an advisory role.'" One hundred troops in an advisory role. So nothing to worry about here, folks, only gonna be for a few months. Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the combat Lord's Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lord's Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lord's Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them. Lord's Resistance Army are Christians. It means God. I was only kidding. Lord's Resistance Army are Christians. They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan. And Obama has sent troops, United States troops to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them. That's what the lingo means, "to help regional forces remove from the battlefield," meaning capture or kill...
    It's just for a few months until the Lord's Resistance Army is eradicated. That's all. Just a few months. Not much of a threat.
    Looks like you took the bait hook, line and sinker with this article that clearly misrepresents what Limbaugh sarcastically said. It's clear from the outset of the transcript that Limbaugh's point is there's no national interest in this fool's mission, and we're needlessly endangering the lives of our troops so Obama can score political points. If you're going to include a link to the transcript of the supposedly offending piece you might want to read it first - assuming accuracy is your objective.

    Nice.

    The issue is Christians committing atrocities, and you want to make it about my opinion and what I can and cannot discern.
    No, the issue is Rush Limbaugh whining about the President sending 100 tropps to Uganda to kill Christians. Any right minded person with the smallest hint of a clue would know that the LRA is not a Christian organization, hence my, claiming and being comment. Unless of course you are Rush Limbaugh that has a hatred that runs so deep for this President of our United States that you would try and make the case that the President is sending troops to Africa to kill Christians.

    You were fine with the first sentence, and then screwed up with the second. Do you even know how to stay on topic and not confront the poster? Sheesh.
    A question you should've asked yourself before you made your first post. Better yet, before commenting, did you even think about googling the LRA? If you had, I'm not sure you would've made the comment you did. Again, the topic was Limbaugh whining about the President sending 100 troops to Africa to kill Christians.

    OK, I'll bite, what leads you to believe that I'm unable to discern the difference between the two? Please be specific.
    Have you had the chance to research more about the LRA? If so, and you still stand by your assertion that the LRA is a Christian organization as they claim, so be it.

    I'd say that I'm a little shocked that you are unable to believe that Christians have engaged in, and are currently engaging in such atrocities, but I'm not shocked at all.
    How did you come to the conclusion that I am unable to believe that Christians have engaged in atrocities? Amazing. But hey, who am I to disagree with you if you believe the LRA is actually a Christian group.

    Many Christians, at least in public, will try their dead level best to distance themselves from the atrocities that other Christians commit, even going so far as to claim that such atrocities would never be committed by real Christians. And yet they are.
    So you stand by Limbaugh's comments and condem the President for going to Africa to kill Christians? Even though the Catholic Church in Uganda has officially disavowed the organization and its leader and that they are considered to be a terroist organization and Congress approved S.1067 - Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009. If you believe this group of rebels are doing God's work, then who am I to judge.
    Hey, if you want to defend fact free, propaganda BS, feel free.

    but NOT as bad as putting troops into Uganda is.
    And that's where you went wrong. Like you said, you started a thread about Obama sending troops into Uganda, go to your thread and argue with yourself. This thread is about Limbaugh saying the President was sending troops to Africa to kill Christians!


    I pay no attention to those "entertainment" shows.
    Then why post in a thread that's about an entertainer, accusing our President, of killing Christians?

    They don't have the potential to get my son, my nephew or his wife, killed. Obama can. I pay attention to that.
    Duly noted, since you started a thread about the President sending troops to Uganda, I understand your concern and why you would be upset about this decision. This thread however, is about a slimeball accusing the President of sending U.S. troops to Africa to kill Christians!


    Did he request or just send them?
    Did you read the article you posted? I advise you to click here and listen to Senator Inhofe's comments on the floor to better understand our Governments actions. Again, the thread I started wasn't about if we should or should not send troops to Africa, it was about Limbaugh saying our President was sending 100 of our troops to Uganda to kill Christians!

    I DID start a tread about this horrible decision the day he announced that he was sending 100 fully armed advisors into Uganda.
    Yes you did.

    As far as I know it was NOT brought up with Congress. There was NO request mentioned. All he did was notify the Congress that he was sending in those advisors.
    That would be a good discussion for your thread that you started. This thread however, is about Limbaugh telling his listening audience that the President is sending U.S. troops to Uganda to kill Christians!

    No matter how bad the LRA is, and they ARE quite bad, they are NO threat to the US or our Constitution. It is NONE of our business. It is an internal problem within Uganda.
    Yeah......I know how you feel about this decision, because I read it in the thread you started. However this thread is about Limbaugh claiming that the President is sending troops to a foreign land to kill Christians!

    The crux of the matter is that the FACT that we are sticking our nose into a problem that is NOT ours. What one man may, or may not said, is NOT even on the same page as far as problems go.

    Besides, it seems that there may conflicting transcripts on this subject. One was posted in this thread earlier.

    Obama is NOT MY president. He is of the Devil's spawn. I have no use for him. He can be your president if you like. I will look at BOTH transcripts in here and see how I read it. Not that I care. Obama is wrong.
