Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
If America can't call out Syria on humanitarian claims because of our track record, why on earth is Iran pointing fingers?
That aside, I hope we don't get into that mess.
"I am not among those who fear the people. They and not the rich, are our dependence for continued freedom." -- Thomas Jefferson, 1816 "[F]acts are before ideas." -- Mikhail Bakunin, 1882
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.

This is incredible, I'd like to know if this is a hoax or if he really made the threat.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
"a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think thank, and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.
“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],” he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].”

See...now this is the kind of **** that tends to unify us. Talk all you want about your All Akbar bull**** and your impotent threats. But threaten our kids? **** you, bitches...its on. And isnt it laughingly pathetic that these 'holy' warriors turn to rape and attacking children as the pinnacle of their manhood.
Yeah...that thing you think it is doing? It aint. You think it will make people stop...become fearful...retreat. Nope. just the opposite. I dont want there to be a war. I dont want us to engage Syria unless there is real actually proof as to WHO is using chemical weapons and if there IS, we need to eliminate them, whether it is the Syrian government or the rebels. But...if Iran wants to get all froggy? No 'targeted strikes'. Level that entire ****ing country. Good riddance. You like 'messages'? Ive got one for you.
Yes, American already gave us the daily Caller link, see post 35.
