    PHOENIX - An Arizona lawmaker assigned to a tour of duty in
    Iraq will be serving as an Army Reserves intelligence officer during his re-election campaign back home.

    Republican Rep. Jonathan Paton, a freshman legislator, said he learned Saturday that he was going to Iraq to work in military intelligence for five to six months.

    The 35-year-old Tucson native said he volunteered for the duty last year because he needed to back up his support of the war with action. "You should kind of put your money where your mouth is," he said.

    He is standing up for what he preaches instead of thinking having a bumper sticker is supporting the troops, and I find that admirable.

    In a political climate where people that have never worn a uniform call those that have cowards if they don't agree with the way this war is being handled it is refreshing to see someone actually "put his money where his mouth is"
    Agree with his politics or not, agree with the war or not......

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I think politicians, leaders of countries, militia etc should physically fight each other to settle disputes rather than sending in troops. Much less damaging to the population and infrastructure of a country, and only those that start it have to fight in it....perfect

    With some of the heads of state in power, that could be a very scary proposal.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
