    Maybe these murderers weren't yet made aware of all the apologies flowing from the White House.

    Wow, communications must be very slow over there.

    President Bush has apologized to Iraq's prime minister for an American sniper's shooting of a Quran, and the Iraqi government called on U.S. military commanders to educate their soldiers to respect local religious beliefs.

    Bush's spokeswoman said Tuesday that the president apologized during a videoconference Monday with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who told the president that the shooting of Islam's holy book had disappointed and angered both the Iraqi people and their leaders.

    "He apologized for that in the sense that he said that we take it very seriously," White House press secretary Dana Perino said. "We are concerned about the reaction. We wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong."
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

At that time I did post where that occurred but good friend of mine advised me to be prudent on the internet because I still have my elderly mother and brother and sister and their children back home there.

    In my childhood event of the muslim attacks, the second one came about three months later because they were mad that we dared to fight back and hurt some of them badly. On their second attack they tried to burn our village down by shooting fire projectiles from the tower of their mosque.

    People like to say not all muslims are violent. But, you will never find one when they go into a violent frenzy against your people. By then, when your life and your loved ones are at stake, it doesn't matter any more if there are some peaceful muslims or not. What matter is that you have to fight for your life and your loved ones' life.

    If we can prevent this in the first place, such as preventing islam ideology and culture to take root in this country and restrict their immigration into this country, why not do it for the sake of your children and your children's children and the nation's future?
    That sounds too much like a bad Hollywood movie to be true, do you have any proof that Muslims commit more crimes in the US than their fellow citizens?

    Christains have had their share of savagery throughout history. And under the right circumstances, they could likely be so again.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Afghans Protest Alleged Koran Desecration

    Could it be that the Afghans are just protesting because they're sick of ten years of airstrikes?

    I was shocked and saddened to see Amy Goodman playing the role of imperial propagandist ...

    Ah - the govmnt stenography going on in the American media these days ...

    So thats, count them, 3 supposed "liberals" - Ed Yutz, (Schultz), Amy Goodman and Jon Stewart all lying to us on behalf of the U.S. government, calling the Libya war a victory. Shame!

    "Yesterday Amy had some “reporter” on who has been traveling around Libya (supposedly) with the “rebels” and various others, so that she could give Amy’s audience a first hand glimpse into what she (and Amy’s website) called the “revitalization” of Libya. If this “reporter” did actually go to Libya, she was there as an embedded journalist, just like the ones CNN and Fox News sent off to Iraq to tell the “real” story about how the Iraqis were so happy we blew the **** out of their country. Remember the Saddam statue? Remember the Jessica Lynch story? That’s embedded journalism."

    "So Amy Goodman has this embedded “journalist” on to set the record straight and paint a nice rosy picture of a post Gadhafi Libya. According to her, the people of Libya and Tripoli specifically, are just so damn happy that NATO bombed the **** out of them and killed many innocent civilians in the process, because…"

    Just because they have double standers does not mean we should stoop to their level or do dumb things when even dumb Joe Shmoe knows what the consequence is going to be

    Surprise , surprise. Jon Stewart plays the role of PBS Charlie Rose in unwavering
    manipulation and revisionist history, are we all getting this?

    Why do we all like this Stewart guy again, I forget?



    by Scott Creighton

    "But if you think all of that war-mongering neo-con spin was bad coming from a so-called leader of the American Left, you haven’t seen anything until you see Jon Stewart’s take on the recent premeditated murder of Moammar Gadhafi (while he was already in custody no less) and the NATO bombing of the people of Libya.

    "Jon and his writers kick his unfunny propaganda into full gear on this one, barely leaving one single line free of pro-Obama/pro-illegal war spin. It is Orwellian to say the least and completely unsupported by any facts what so ever as you will see."

    "Stewart actually jokes about a person being taken prisoner while pleading not to be shot and being killed anyway in cold blood. The audience of “progressives” morbidly laughs along with him. It’s a disgusting moment as bad as a Republican audience booing a gay soldier"
