    So you think it would be more fair if the casualties were 50/50?

    It wasn't intended for people like yourself and never expected you to read it. But a stooge???

    Just like 911 and it's 3000 deaths can be placed squarely on GW Bush. Why isn't he in jail?

    So Israel doesn't have a right to exist?

    Because your premise is wrong.

    You are aware that Clinton made this statement hours before 9/11 right?

    Perhaps if Bush had tried to get Bin Laden like Clinton did I wouldn't blame him. The fact is Bush dropped the ball on Bin Laden because he was fixated on Saddam Hussein.
    America paid the price for that bungling. 3000 American deaths from 911 + 4000 American deaths from the Iraqi invasion. That's 7000. He should have went to jail.

    I'm glad to see you think that not an iota of honest effort ever went into building a superpower.
