Technically you are in violation of your citizenship but I won't tell if you don't.


    Civilian casualties plummet in drone strikes - CNN
    I'm not for sending any troops or drones to Yemen, Somalia or Pakistan. How you got I'm for sending troops anywhere out of what I said is beyond me. If you think we aren't killing civilians with drones strikes right now you are just dead wrong. Look at my previous post I provided links one of which is to the guardian website which keeps a total of the strikes and civilian casualties. That cnn report you talked about defines terrorists in extremely broad terms. I don't remember the exact language but it's damn close to if you're male and standing where the rocket hits you're a terrorist. If Al Queada is so terrible then why are we helping them in Syria. I am a citizen and hopefully we haven't reached the point yet where it can be revoked because people like you don't like something I said.

    As in the early Islamic tradition, they have Used this as a Pretext for murder.
    What tradition is that?

    The only Third party blame I see is for any Local Imams who incited them.

    mbig/abu afak
    I see, so incitement is only reprehensible when a Moslem does it. Gotcha.

    That is incorrect.

    There are approximatley 110,000 US millitary personell still operational in Iraq

    In addition there are over 150,000 private US security personell - largely funded by the US tax payer, that are there to protect US interests - and by US interests I mean PRIVATE CORPORATE interests

    Also, the so called US embassy in Bagdad has approximately 15,000 personell within its boundaries - most of whom are military and intelligence people. And this embassy has 600 buildings in it - a bit of an overkill dont you think, just to cater for the US tourist in Iraq who may need a new passport dont you think?

    So if you wish to call this a pull out of troops then I would like to see your version of a full scale land invasion

    Even these Arabs must know that, must see content that makes them understand that fact
    The usual Dishonest andalublue post.

    The tradition that cleansed the Arabian Peninsula of Jews and others under various... pretexts. The 'sword verses' in general in fact. (Way over your head, I know)
    Many of Mohammed's attacks/Massacres used Pretext.
    Thus I signed my post with my two handles making sure abu afak was bolded. Lost on you of course.

    That's another Dishonest response.
    This vid was not new and the reaction Not throughout the Arab or Muslim world. Just where some sought to make it an issue/rallying cry.
    It's still early in the investigation, but speculation is it may even have been a planned attack with or without al-Qaeda's help.
    That 'incitment'.

    You never could make an honest response. Ever. Be it your Utter fabrication of a Fallaci 'quote' or your estimate of Pipes credentials on Islam
    Your posts are a Joke, except they are also Notably Dishonest and Disingenuous.
    Maybe stick to cooking/recipes.


    another Dishonest andalublue post sure to follow in 'response'.
    But not/never really responsIVE.

    I'm pretty sure the US and UK intended to invade Iraq, on false and falsified premises and illegally. The Iraq war was a far, far more reprehensible act than this single grenade attack and mob riot. It is, however, somewhat off topic.

    Except of course, SgtRock's post was completely untrue. The ambassador died of smoke inhalation inside the consulate. No torture, no dragging through the streets. You'd think the death of an ambassador would be enough, but some folks can't resist playing the drama queen for nefarious purposes.
