    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.
    Wow are you wrong... Have fun with that.

    I didn't say anything close to that did I Grant, you're having difficulty with your position so you need to twist mine? Hamas is killing soldiers while Israel is killing civilians. In the meantime, you support the guys killing all the civilians. But then I've noticed there's plenty of anti humanitarian and anti democracy positions you support.

    Why do you guys ALWAYS go to extremes. I haven't heard anybody suggest that. Israel however does not have a right to exist at the expense of the Palestinians which has been the case since 1948. Why did the Palestinians have to give up their rights, and squeeze into the small places they find themselves in now (called a prison camp by David Cameron) to make room for Jews to come in and declare the Palestinian ancestral lands, the State of Israel. In fact this is damn retarded to even have to have such a conversation as this. You would never support the notion the other way around.

    Yeah, and North Korea's been threatening to nuke us for damn near 20 years. Bluster from terrorist dirtbags is not an imminent threat.

    Then Palestinians should go back to Jordan. Jews predate any so called Palestinians.

    So your solution to a movement, that is currently invading a country and performing public beheadings, that is threatening America is to wait until they come here? Perhaps you should put the drink down.
