    And as I said, meaningless. Once 9/11 happened, the dynamics changed. He could have focused on effective strategies. He didn't. He used Iraq, and overreaction, and helped OBL (the second part of the claim).

    Your facts have not disputed my point.

    Japanese internment camps, rounded up and incarcerated only because they were of Japanese ancestry, and nothing more. History repeated itself after 9/11/01 when our government rounded up and detained Muslims without due process, denied access to legal counsel.

    Yep, the same thing happened. Innocent Japanese and innocent Muslims all detained by the evil Amwericans.

    What do you suppose it is that makes people in America so evil?

    Maybe you missed something or have a handicap of some sort, but it has been pointed out to you more than once that Bush had the his eye on Iraq before 9/11. Before 9/11! Before 9/11!, just as other politicians and Presidents did.

    Before 9/11!

    Do you have a handicap or something?

    Or, are you using Dragon and naturally talk like Bugs Bunny?

    yes, this book was distributed among all the first world countries and with devastating results. While those who followed Confucius Hinduism, the Koran, etc. were making tremendous advances in their countries the First World kept falling behind to the point we see now.
    There are statistics claiming that despite all the money being spent on education in the United States the results have been greatly disappointing and that ignorance is now becoming quite wide-spread. Can you explain this phenomenon?

    I keep telling you that makes no difference at all. None. Nada. No one else invaded, and Bush used 9/11, and helped OBL out.

    Your view is not only at variance with the historical record, it is foolish.
