View Full Version : How many of you agree with going to war.

03-21-2003, 02:28 PM
Why and why not...

03-21-2003, 02:38 PM
There are many threads about this in general, and we have discussed it to the point of deciding that this is a PET board, and we would like to talk about other things.

03-21-2003, 02:54 PM
Amen to that!! :)

Been dying to show off my girls and their patriotism (same as mine), all day!!! Here they are!!! :)

Beautiful proud Americans you have there!!!!!:)

Beautiful sig, Logan--If I could ask, how did you make that?? I feel like the only unpatriotic one on the board, but I'm simply computer illeterate:confused:

03-21-2003, 03:09 PM
You're welcome to use the flag in my sig if you like. Just right click on it and go to properties, just like adding a photo from imagestation to your sig. I wish I knew how to make cool sig's, too. :(

03-21-2003, 03:14 PM
I recently made a new and patriotic sig... but its nothing like logans!:eek: lol:p

03-21-2003, 03:16 PM
Thanks Micki!!
Jessica, I think yours is beautiful. Maybe one of these talented people will just take it upon themselves to make one for me (hint hint):)

You're welcome! Looks very patriotic!! :)

Yeah, I need a nice sig, too. hint hint, too! :D
Or even good instructions on how to do one would be very appreciated. Do I need a special program like Photoshop (don't have) or something? I'm so lame I don't even know how to use Paint. LOL!

03-21-2003, 03:54 PM
Threads like these often cause arguments and long discussions. If you are really interested, I guess you could try moving this to General, but people have seen lots of these posts already. :rolleyes:

Emily, I would make you a nice sig but mine don't turn out to good ;) Besides, I feel so left out cause I'm Canadian. Oh well, I'm proud to be one but I can still support the troops. :)

03-21-2003, 06:11 PM
If you want, I can make a sig for you! I'm not as good as some people, but I'd still be happy to! ;)

03-21-2003, 07:31 PM
wel there are reasons to and reasons not to if we didnt Saddam would make his own trouble so i think it should be now yea i guess:( :rolleyes:

03-21-2003, 08:09 PM
I agree to going to war and don't agree.

I agree because Saddam is a horrible person and need to be vanished from the surface of this planet. He starves the people pf his country, puts them in shredders and lets his followers do cruel things to the women of his country. He lets the people of his "inner circle" rape the women.

I do not agree with it because war is a horrible thing, but sometimes needs to be done, like now. Who knows what animals of humans may be harmed that should not be harmed during the war.

03-21-2003, 08:12 PM
Emily, just incase you don't see my PM, i made you this,...

03-21-2003, 08:52 PM
That's a great sig you made :) I'm sure Emily will like it. ;) And I agree with you on the war thing. It's a tough kinda descision with pros and cons.

03-21-2003, 08:56 PM
I am an army brat. My father was MIA in Viet Nam. So I think we know where I stand. But to a brighter note Help I want a signature and can't seem to figure out how to do it. Everyone was so helpful on the posting of pics the phreds were great sooooo how about one on signatures?:) :)

03-21-2003, 09:15 PM
Well, I'm Canadian like Primabella, so no flags for me lol..But I have a piccy in my sig with my babies asking for peace (moreso demanding it :rolleyes: )

03-21-2003, 09:18 PM
the pick is so cute, wolfsoul!:D

03-21-2003, 09:23 PM
Thanks! :) I just wish it didn't have that book in the background :( It gets in the way of the letters lol

03-21-2003, 09:26 PM
I think its cute. Cat and Mouse(Rat) and as for the book didn't notice till you pointed it out. Its perfect.:)

03-21-2003, 09:32 PM

03-21-2003, 10:13 PM
micki76, I hope you do not mind but I am using your
flag too.

03-21-2003, 10:56 PM
I, not Paul, closed the poll, took away the votes, and people immediately posted that we shouldn't discuss the war issue. Most people then started posting pet pictures, which is why I didn't delete the thread. It has become more about "patriotic pet pictures" and not about the war.

03-21-2003, 11:11 PM
I love everyone's signatures! I'd love to have a patriotic signature! I love how Amy (wolf_q) always has a different signature graphic for each holiday! I'd love to have that for Sadie!

Not at all!!! I would love it if all American PTs would use it!!!! Canadians - get your flags up!!! Britains - get your flags up!! Everyone - Show YOUR pride in YOUR country during these hard times!

03-22-2003, 12:25 AM
Ok, someone explain to me, please, in VERY GREAT detail ... how do you get the flag in your signature after you have copied the url from properties?

I know, I know ... I'm a computer idiot.


03-22-2003, 12:32 AM

but use square brackets instead of round :) on the image tags.

and please disregard that it's a link.. it does that automatically with this software I think :)

03-22-2003, 12:42 AM
My sig is really a bookmark! My brother was doing his homework and I saw it and scanned it :D

03-22-2003, 04:20 AM
I have MY flag up. :p

And no, I don't agree with the war. Not one bit.

I personally have mixed feelings about whether we should be at war or not but since we are.... I support our troops and stand united in voice and action until they are all home again! I do not feel that protesting the war is going to change anything except to take police away from being alert to problems that may occur. It is hard enough for them to do their job with all the extra demands put on them, I do not think it is right to put more on them!

Here is my contribution to the Patriotic pet theme!


03-22-2003, 09:46 AM
Candy--that is the CUTEST thing I have ever seen!!!!!

03-22-2003, 09:56 AM
Well, I put a Canadian flag in my signature. :D
Wait..it's not working. :confused:

Let's try it out here:

03-22-2003, 10:03 AM
A lot of people are taking the same US flag. Here's a site with many to choose from: :)

03-22-2003, 10:08 AM
Dixieland Dancer~ That is ADORABLE!! :D :D

03-22-2003, 10:09 AM
thanks primabella, i used the eagle one, did it work?:)

03-22-2003, 10:09 AM
i cant see it:( (my flag)

03-22-2003, 10:10 AM
Yep, very nice. :)

03-22-2003, 10:10 AM
Mine too. They work sometimes...:confused: Whatever...:p

I found another site. They're just plain but at least they'll work :rolleyes:
Here (http://w1.511.telia.com/~u51102888/anims/flags/flags.htm)

03-22-2003, 10:41 AM
I'm a little late returning to this thread and WOW :eek: you guys have created some beautiful signatures! Mine is so huge that I can't put it in my signature, but Rachel reduced it for me and I'm trying to find a place where I can store it at the reduced size (shutterfly blew it up). As soon as I can make it work, Honey and Lilly will be saying God Bless America in my signature!

For those of you who asked, way back on page one of this thread, I didn't make it! A nice girl over at Jackie's site did it for me. I am inept at these things!!! :o

03-22-2003, 10:17 PM
all your signatures are so great. I tried to put one on mine and it didnt work. so i tried it again and we will see.

03-22-2003, 10:23 PM
How come it didnt work:( :( :(

03-22-2003, 10:32 PM
You need to put it in brackets like this: your info here(no spaces at all) Make sure and use the square brackets and not parenthesis.

03-22-2003, 10:46 PM
ok Lets see. I'm no computer person. It took me a week to learn to post pics with everybodys help. so here goes.

03-22-2003, 10:50 PM

You need to put the [img ] BEFORE the url for your picture, and then [/ img] after it, but without the spaces. But the URL you gave for the image doesn't work, either. Check that again, okay?

03-22-2003, 10:51 PM
oh well, it didn't work. :( :( I will play around with it later. Thanks a million, I know its more that likely very easy but I NO COMPUTER PERSON:D :D :D

03-23-2003, 10:20 AM
by cheetah girl...I have MY flag up. :p

hey cheetah girl, could you tell me a little about the history/design reasons for pakistans' flag? thanks

03-23-2003, 10:38 AM
Candy, your puppies with their flags are precious.
As for the war, President Eisenhower, who could not be said to be unpatriotic and who, as Commander in Chief of the Allied Forces in WW II, knew the ravages of war first hand said:
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientist, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."
Regardless of what one's opinion of this war is, those words are true for all times.
The best way to support the men and women in the front is to pray for them to return safe and soon to their anxious families.

Are there any good sites on how I can add borders and make Max's pic smaller??

06-02-2003, 05:44 PM
Does it really matter if we agree or not about GOING to war? Seems to me it's all ready been decided! Kind of late to be debating if we should go when we've all ready gone.
