    Being a conservative your 9/11 is markedly obtuse and 2 dimensional. :P

    I don't believe at playing War as we have so far, and did in Vietnam.

    You have to go to War to win and no half way half-assed measures or it ends up being drawn out into and endless quagmire and we finally give up and go home and thousands died for nothing and nothing changes other than the bad guys have time to regroup and come back another day even stronger.

    Now we know the Taliban has told it's murderers to back off until Obama completes his retreat.

    Once our troops are down in numbers where the Taliban no longer fear them They will kill off the Government in power and go right back to where they were before 9-11.

    Obama is the stupidest idiot to ever come along. You never ever tell the enemy you plans. What does he have for brains?

    Nothing I suspect.

    One last thing for Aunt Spicker. It took far less than 100 to bring about the reality of 9-11.

    It's sad to say but the only way to defeat them and end their reign of terror has nothing to do with with talking or treaties.
    It's all about fighting fire with fire.
    So are you going to burn their flag? Which, BTW, would literally be fighting fire with fire

    Oh how cute. I particularly like how you declare America morally superior to "Islam" (whoever that is) for limiting civilian casualties...then go on to say in your VERY NEXT SENTENCE that you wish that we would NOT do that. Make up your mind.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    They are trying to draw attention to themselves. I won't give them any.

    Personally, I think someone should've used a high pressure hose to try and put those flags out.

    But there's douches everywhere, some burn flags, some protest at funerals, and some advocate mass killing of civilians on internet forums, just gotta learn to ignore them.

    John Cleese must be cuckoo-cocoa-puffs if he doesn't think that London reflects the heritage of England. This photo screams England. Look at those bricks and columns on the building. You can't find those everywhere.

    Except when they have a government that we dont like so much.....
    But our presence in the middle east i would argue has actually strengthened extremism.

    Islam goes out of it's way to maim and kill innocent people from any walk of life.
    I would say extreme Islamic-fascism does....

    After 9-11 we could have done as we did in Japan but burning Tokyo almost to the ground and obliterating two other Cities with A-bombs but we didn't and it has cost us dearly.
    3,000 lives=dropping nuclear technology on a 3rd world country?
    Cmon get out of your fantasy.. That was never on the table.

    I don't believe at playing War as we have so far, and did in Vietnam.
    Tell us then how would you beat "terror"?

    You have to go to War to win and no half way half-assed measures or it ends up being drawn out into and endless quagmire and we finally give up and go home and thousands died for nothing and nothing changes other than the bad guys have time to regroup and come back another day even stronger.
    So us using are "superior" technology is "half-assing"?

    Now we know the Taliban has told it's murderers to back off until Obama completes his retreat.
    His "retreat"? Didnt he strengthen the troop presence in Afghanistan by A LOT? Didnt Obama pretty much kick off the drone strikes in Pakistan?

    Once our troops are down in numbers where the Taliban
    The Taliban were the "good guys" at one point...

    no longer fear them They will kill off the Government in power and go right back to where they were before 9-11.
    Any proof to this claim? Or is this just your crystal ball?
    Because are we not training and strengthening Afghanistan military force and pretty much funding them?

    Obama is the stupidest idiot to ever come along. You never ever tell the enemy you plans. What does he have for brains?
    He told the enemy our plans?


    One last thing for Aunt Spicker. It took far less than 100 to bring about the reality of 9-11.
    So your saying these protesters are plotting a terrorist attack!?
    They are trained and ready to go?
