    When it comes to things like "should we launch attacks against the West", the answer is "yes." Unequivocally.

    If anything, the ongoing infighting makes life more dangerous in the short term, as flashy attacks will allow one side a leg up in relation to the other as far as donations and recruits are concerned.

    That's your incorrect opinion, which you are entitled to and won't change anything in today's real world.






    Myself, I place the blame directly where it belongs on Mr. G. W. Bush whose stupid action in Iraq set this whole chain of events in motion.

    No matter who ends up on top in Iraq, one thing is for sure- Iraq will never be a reliable friend of the USA.

    I totally agree, but we constantly see similar posts.

    It's all about people who would like to control this planet and every human being on it.

    The far right is a collection of control freaks who won't be happy until everyone needs a permit slip to use the restroom, and they control the permit slips.

    It's just plain silly.



    Tell that to the Neo-cons who promoted G.W. Bush's disaster in Iraq, which the USA will be paying for a long time from now.

    The funniest part is that they claimed they "saw it coming" so what does that make them? stupid or tolerant?

    They're ****ing idiots..

    But they were smart enough to oppose G. W. Bush who made this happen, eh?

    If you don't agree with it, then why are you promoting it by not strongly opposing it?

    The USA should have stayed well clear of Iraq and the Middle East in general.

    If it had, we'd be a lot better off.
