    So bomb the frowners with some happy gas. But screw tear gas, some '60s on the roof and a gunship with mini-guns would of been far more appropriate. It wasn't like those guys standing around throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails were "innocent" by standards.

    Is not using the super secret CIA time machine an impeachable offense?

    (Normally, I don't like using NPR as a source here because it will be attacked. However, since the Daily Caller and WND are being used by the right these days....)
    Leon Panetta claimed that support wasn't sent, because it was, "dangerous". Now, the claim is that supporting forces were too far away.

    What's next weeks lie going to be?

    I thought they rescued 30 people in 25 minutes. I know I read that somewhere today.

    In reality, Bush didn't start any wars. The wars were started by the nations that attacked us on 9/11.

    Did you watch the second video? The Spectre is capable of taking out individual targets with pinpoint accuracy. Think of what it could have done against a mob of a hundred or so terrorists...or a mortar position.
