The GWOT is a fraud, every bit as much as the "war on drugs", or the "war on poverty", or any "war on" anything that is not a tangible force that can be engaged in the practice of actual war. It is a catch phrase, a rallying cry, and a cover for spending.Recognizing that the GWOT is a fraud, I understand that we have been manipulated and fooled.
Just so I can be clear, please expand, in what way?It is WE who have invaded the muslim countries.
No, I don't think you do.So really, I understand why you think as you do...
I already told you, I don't have a "fear posture", so you just want to continue the same emotional logical fallacy, it is up to you, but probably best not to pile on the fail.but I cannot embrace that fear posture that we are all supposed to embrace, according to the government and media.
"pal"? Do you know me? Do I know you? Hmmmm...I don't think so....Buddy.Sorry pal.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

We actually agree on a few issues, mostly the cause of the drug war--funding, but there is more to it than that.
It is a fallacy that I have known and do still know certain muslims? Wow, that is an interesting form of logic.
No, I never stated I was an expert on radical islam. Never once. Perhaps you invoked that bit of innuendo to bolster your chosen position here, but I don't know. I'm glad to find out you're not afraid of muslims either. Perhaps I have you confused with another poster, but several posts here and elsewhere about 'radical islam' suggest some sort of fear factor, but maybe I'm misreading that?
In what way have we invaded muslim countries? It's hard not to be snarky or sarcastic in replying to such a question, but the straight answer is that we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq to save them from themselves, did so under fraud, and did so in violation of international laws forbidding military aggression.
Curveball, mobile chemical labs, and all those cute pictures Colin put up at the UN. It seemed to me at the time that he was grandstanding and exaggerating, and history has now shown that he was flat-out lying. Ahh, the idealism of a young man dashed to the ground by reality.
But of course the Germans they knew were quite different than the Nazis in Germany.
You seem to be of the school where either all Muslims are terrorists or no Muslims are terrorists. The fact is that some Muslims are Islamist terrorists and those who are, and they are a significant number it seems, must be stopped. Nobody is out to get your two or three Muslims friends specifically.
As for Islam, the estimates are that 15% of Muslims globally tend to the radical side, but not all those are anti-US. Unfortunately 15% of all Muslims is about equal to the entire US population. It is a war we would have long since lost if they were all out to kill us.
The Left, as in the case of Communism, will always side with America's enemies and ignore the human rights violations they commit on a daily basis. Only the United States is held to impossibly high standards while America's enemies are not expected to have any standards whatsoever. This is okay with them, and why the US can never really win. The world drifts in one direction only.
Whether christian, muslim, jewish or otherwise, I understand that most are fine, but it is a certainty that certain elements of all religions practice violence, hatred and intolerance.
No, every individual must be judged separate from the crowd.
