    Would you have felt better if we gave them a few decades to get ready?
    Where has diplomacy succeeded in your opinion? I don't see it.
    We got regime change in Iraq. They are free. We need regime change here. Diplomacy just hasn't worked.

    He denied it happened. I believe him.

    I think you are bombing just fine without external help.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Oh, never mind. I decided I don't like what I wrote.

    Karla Faye Tucker and her druggy boyfriend Daniel Garret brutally murdered two people with a pick axe so they could steal the victims motorcycle.

    The cost of refitting the oil producing facilities was projected to be $20 billion.. Cheney had lobbied for Haliburton to lift sanctions against Iraq, Libya and the Stans.

    So there was an incentive there.. considering how disasterous poor reserve mgmt is.

    That's pretty sick. Did he really do that?

    Their way of life is war. That's how that area and culture of the world has solved problems through millenia. It becomes part of their identity.

    Bah. Every holy text has evil and virtue. You can't say a religion is one thing or another, because it always depends on the interpretation. The Islamists ignore the peaceful messages and hold up the violent one. Moderate Muslims ignore the violent messages and uphold the peaceful. Every single religion on Earth has the exact same situation.

    Don't say it's a "peaceful" religion, because the religion itself has no inclination one way or another. That's just as incorrect as saying it's a violent religion.
