    Al Qaeda means THE BASE.

    It was founded by ex Muslim Brotherhood members. The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda have hated eachother for quite a while.

    Are you ****ing kidding. When the Japs attacked Pearl Harbor was that a pitiful reason to go to war?
    No. A nation attacked us.

    When al Qaeda attacked on 9-11 were we not justified in going to war in Afghanistan?
    No because Al Qaeda is all over the world. The Taliban even offered to turn over Bin Laden. Why punish a whole country, when a group only of 500-1,000 attacked us? We did not need to invade Afghanistan. Sure i would agree with a couple bombing runs and strategic missile strikes onto their bases, but to invade a nation that has destroyed so many empires is pointless.

    I can see you just lining up to fight the German conscripts while shouting jingoistic praises of the good ol' Red White and Blue.

    Re: Veterans symbolically discard service medals at anti-NATO rally

    So let's look at this....


    The article speaks of "50." Never mind the hundreds of thousands that have deployed and deployed....I guess the "50" have spoken. These "50" weren't drafted. They weren't forced into a Vietnam situation. They volunteered to join an organization that deploys it's members to war.....during a time of war. With an entire history of wars to fall back on, we are supposed to believe that these "50" hapless souls unwittingly joined, on accident, to go to an event where the death of human beings (civilian and military) flabbergasted them.

    Provide them no sympathy. These are people who sought glory when they signed the dotted line. These are people who knew where they were headed when they were taught to kill in their respective Army/Marine Corps Boot Camps and Combat training. These are people who grew bitter after Hollywood's romanticism of war proved to have lied to them. They chose to disgrace medals like the "Global War on Terror Service Medal"...the "Iraqi Campaign Medal"...and the "Afghan Campaign Medal" after they joined the military to participate in a War on Terror in Iraq and Afgahinstan. These are people who should have never volunteered to begin with. Stupidity amongst the protestors at its best.

    John Kerry threw his medals on the ground as well. Decades later he would try to fall back on his military experience as a source of pride in order to assure him a throne in the White House. Protestors rarely know what the hell they are doing or even in what they believe in. They just get swept up in temporary emotion until they grow up.

    Fail. Mullah Omar, the one-eyed leader of the Taliban, is UBL's son-in-law. The chance he would turn his father-in-law over to the Great Satan is like unto that of a snowball in hell.

    Amen, bro. It's usually just another case of the American Idle looking for something to do with their time. The real tragedy is when they never do grow up.

    Even the original NeoCons grew up and left the Democratic Party. Most college kid protestors become Conservatives when they get removed from University indoctrination, trends & fads and gain employment. Those Liberals that do not grow up usually turn into bitter Leftists and spend their lives denying that at the heart of their beliefs lies Stalin, Mao, and Hitler. It's what impractical dreams become.

    (I'll probably get beat up for those comments.)
