    A bus ride from their home to the consulate and an American tax payer paid trip to America with citizenship and all the fixins..


    I'm beyond words...
    I vote, that all who come to America to "desert" their countries in hopes of a better life, sign a contract to serve a minimum of 4 years in the US military. Of course they would have to qualify like anyone else. If taxpayers are going to pay to set these people up, they might as well earn their citizenship. If they can't serve in the military, then maybe there could be other arrangements such as some type of civil work force to repair the aging infrastructure. Of course it would not be slavery, it would be paid work. Not only would it allow them to earn their citizenship, it would also give them some types of skills to use once their obligations were met.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Well, generally that is what LEGAL citizens do - they swear an oath..... Illegals just get the royal treatment under Obama... That is why there are white flags flying on the Brooklyn Bridge...

    Take it up with the mods if it's "unacceptable."

    Thanks for pointing out this right wing lie
    Thanks for showing the illogic of the left.

    Most people will believe whatever they're told just as long as it is told by an individual in a standing of authority - if it's not it's thrown in the "conspiracy" bin...
    Who's denying that? It just means that the US is in the business of it too!

As you know I'm really no fan of our CIA and consider it largely a rogue agency.

    However, there was violence before US involvement in the reason and there is still violence there. Had the US been totally non-involved decades ago, there would still be violence in the region.
    Oh that's a nice defence of sponsorship of violence, it would exist anyway. So you think the CIA is rogue, but you deny that they are now, and all the dirty business ended long ago, lol.

    The **** you talking about. This was just released in 2010! And you make no sense, the CIA is rogue, yet its not. Bat **** crazy.
