    Not our fault they wanted to try it themselves.

    In all fairness, Saddam had it far cleaner. Sunni, Shia were not allowed to fight, women didn't have to wear burkas and could drive, Iraq had the best university, and there were still baby milk factories. When has Iraq been better post March 2003???

    You deny corporate influence in DC, or just a fan of single term limits?

    As Hillary Clinton so eloquently testified to congress, if you want "real news" you must go to Al Jazeera, US news is just propaganda. So I suppose they were just reporting, reporting something Egypt didn't like.

    Been doin heavy work myself, lol. I never leave, just taken breaks. Yes, it's the third time. And everybody should find concern with this, not just when it happens to American journalists. It's suppression of press coverage no matter who is captive.
