    Oded Orbach, 55, of Highland Park, Ill., was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Orbach was convicted in April of conspiring to provide material support to the Taliban and conspiring to acquire anti-aircraft missiles.
    He was convicted based on evidence from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency undercover operation in which seven men, including Orbach, agreed to provide various military-grade weapons to an individual they believed to represent the Taliban. The weapons included heat-seeking surface-to-air missiles.
    Another U.S. citizen caught in the sting, Alwar Pouryan, a former U.S. Army translator also from Highland Park, received the same sentence in September.
    The men traveled to Africa, Ukraine and Romania in order to arrange a sale of $25 million in weapons, ammunition and training to the man they believed to be a Taliban official. They planned to make $800,000 on the deal. They were arrested in February 2011 in Romania and extradited to the United States to face trial.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    There's no word in English which adequately describes how stupid that is.
    Hypocrisy describes this best in one word.

    Really? Explain, in detail, the "hypocrisy." Keep in mind that "hypocrisy" actually has a definition.

    You stated that I am stupid for being ok with someone selling weapons to terrorists. If you supported Bush or Obama, you are a hypocrite, because they supplied terrorists with weapons and it was ok. If you state that you do not support neither democrats nor republicans, then obviously I was an idiot for assuming you were, and I apologize in advance.

    No, I'm saying "believing in" "even playing fields" -- when it comes to war -- is so stupid that there's no adequate word in the English language to encapsulate it. I don't know how you missed it; I bolded it for you.
