    Iranians are my brothers and sisters, and I will not stand aside while they are ruled like animals beneath the iron fist of tyranny.
    Government derives its legitimacy from the consent of the governed. If you are not part of the governed, you have no say. Just like Iranians have no say as to our government or its policies. Keep your nose out of other people's business.

    What are the Democrats going to do that the Republicans won't? How different is Obama from Bush? Both sides, Democrats alike, will do nothing more than whittle down our liberties as they use every fear mongering POS story they can contrive to whip us into frenzy so that we stop thinking about the situation and the problems and excuse their gross usurpation of power.

    The group responsible for the grenade attack had made more attacks before the controversy surrounding the film. The film came out some months ago, apparently unnoticed by anyone until it hit YT.

    Conclusion? The film is not to blame for this attack, the attackers are. The film is being used an excuse for attacks, it is not the cause.

    It's still a pretty crass, inflamatory and discriminatory thing to do, making a film with the direct intention of being provocative and insulting.

    They will say anything they need to say. They stare lovingly into cameras chanting the glory of Allah while they saw a kids head off. The cheer in glory when they assassinate a woman for the crime of talking to a man. They excuse and justify their despicable existence. Blaming Obama is just the latest excuse dujoir to acting like a bunch of ****ing animals.

    One day after we honored the 11th anniversary of 9-11, you type such nonsense. That was Al Qaeda then. Yesterday was Al Qaeda.

    Oh the magnitudes !!!

    There were no birth records kept until after 1900 AD.

    But, there are historic milestones plus her previous engagement.. She was older.

    We may respond when our sovereignty is directly threatened. But that's it, no excuses for why we had to derail into Iraq or any of the other BS we're using to establish and proliferate forever war.
