    Home grown vermin? Do you mean the Americans with morals?



    And? Do you assume there would be no bloodbaths if we hadn't been involved? That the U.S. just automatically generates them by its' mere presence? That none of those peoples are to blame for anything? Is there some reason why people who habitually use this as a talking point can never bring themselves to blame, say, the Soviet Union and Ho for Viet Nam, for instance?
    If you don't want to be blamed for killing people when you take sides in another country's civil war, stay the **** out of it. The US claimed we had to stop N. Vietnam or else country after country would fall to communism. Did that happen, or have we been doing business with Communist Vietnam for decades?



    I'm very familiar with the civil war started by the railroad lawyer from Illinois for the benefit of his financial swindler Republicans up North. That was key to creating the Republican Party in the first place, destroying the South in order to help themselves to massive handouts. What do you want to know about it?

    Was it bloodless like you apparently expect civil wars in other countries to be?

    Do you know why they were doing that? And you think its okay to support a murderer and provide him with the stuff to make illegal WMD, if it helps in world hegemony of the world's largest reserves of cheap oil???



    Rest of the world? What rest of the world? Who are you referring to here?
    The rest of the world represented in the UN that wouldn't go along with the US attack on Iraq.

    Here is another twist to the story.

    (SEATTLE) — The day before the rampage that killed 16 Afghan villagers, the U.S. soldier accused of the mass killings saw his friend's leg blown off, his lawyer said. "His leg was blown off, and my client was standing next to him," he said.

    It isn't clear whether the incident might have helped prompt the horrific middle-of-the-night attack on civilians in two villages last Sunday. Browne said it affected all of the soldiers at the base.

    No, my question was 'do you know who the alternative choices to support besides Saddam' were. Obviously you don't have the first idea, you just like posting irrelevant 'talking points' over and over. Same for Viet Nam or any of the other conflicts.

    Our better choice would have been to follow our Constitution and stay the **** out of it.
    Really? The Constitution says we shouldn't honor mutual defense treaties with allies? Which Amendment is that, specifically?

    The myth of 'American neutrality' didn't work out, even in the 1790's. I hate to break it to you, but that's the facts, not to mention 'Mr. Neutrality' himself, Thomas Jefferson, declared our very first war in his first term as President, and also ignored that principle every time it got in the way of his foreign policy as well, as did Washington before him.

    Your next post is just more of the same, so no reply is necessary.

    The tired old 'isolationist' rhetoric are just Soviet Cold War memes left over from insipid 1960's 'New Left' propaganda rags. Not very convincing at that.

    You mean the UN whose membership is made up largely of dictators, and had Mommar Quadaffy as Chairman of its 'Human Rights' Commission? Yes, that's a point ...

    The choice is whether to kill people for US oil hegemony, or not. I choose not. Now answer my question, how is the Afghanistan supporting terrorism by the Taliban different that our supporting the terrorism by Saddam?

    Post Persian Gulf war Iraq did not have the capacity to be a military threat to our allies.

    I see if a country doesn't have corrupt democracy that we forced on them at the end of a gun through invasion/occupation/regime change, they don't matter. Got it!
