    Point missed entirely!
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Perhaps you could enlighten me on what one thing has to do with the other?

    AS in--why believe anything someone has to say who's yet to substantiate his past buffoonish assertions?

    As opposed to people who post something totally unrelated to anything else that was said? Yeah, I should take that more seriously I guess.

    I suspect that the same people criticizing Obama for not labeling the Fort Hood shooting as an act of terror are the same people that complained when he assassinated the Fort Hood shooter's mentor, al-Awlaki in Yemen. Some people are just whiners and impossible to please.

    I think most people see a radical convert shouting "Allah Akbar" while killing 13 people and wounding 30 others as a terrorist act.
    Motives for mass killings are numerous but you've decided that yelling Allah Akbar makes it an act of terrorism? Would yelling "in God's name" while slaughtering people at an abortion clinic or "holy cow, batman" while slaughtering people in a theater make it an act of terrorism or is the label just for Muslims?



    As to what would change if it were labeled as such, I think the better question is why is so much effort spent to avoid calling such acts for what they are? If you don't think anything would change, why defend the mislabeling?
    I'm not the one that called it a 'mislabeling', you did.

    During the GWBush years, conservatives were labeling anyone and everyone that didn't agree with them as terrorists and still do. So perhaps the word 'terrorism' just doesn't mean as much as it used to.

    There is no equivalency....It's a false narrative that once again leads some to believe that Obama protects, and runs cover for terrorists.
    You obviously did not attend a madrass <sp?> as a child thus lack the understanding Obama has....
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Something you demanding makes for quite the irony.

    Context of 'August 4, 2002: Scowcroft Warns That Invading Iraq Could Destabilize Middle East, ‘Destroy War on Terror’'



    Please entertain us by citing when it was shown otherwise.



    Why stop there there--plenty of groups all over the world (terrorist and otherwise) have gained strength under BO's watch.

    Oh, lookie here--a journalist murdered by cartel members--

    Mexican Narcos Murder Citizen Journalist, Tweet Photo of Her Corpse

    --watch while mmc blames Obama for that, too--after all, Obama failed to stop it.

    Oh wow, here's a bunch of Muslims killed by Hindus in India for no reason. . .

    Muslims burned to death in India attack - Al Jazeera English

    HA lemme guess--O's responsible for not stopping it--of course

    Sesame Street word of the day for righties: relevance--one is only responsibly for something malicious he/she initiated, not for failing to stop the direct consequences of an act initiated by someone else (i. e. the Iraq invasion).

    Why should O or anyone be responsible for cleaning up a mess he never caused?



    Not enough, apparently, to learn about the concept of personal responsibility.

    If you wanna keep going on about how O isn't doing enough to stop something he never caused, time for you to put your body where your mouth is and take responsibility for something you did cause--the elections of a reckless brain-dead idiot from TX running the show from 2001 - 2008.

    As the old saying goes, put up, or. . .


    Post 123 what BO Peeps own US Army Joint Chief of Staff has to say. Its been sitting in the thread and the other one goes back to post 66. So it is a little late to talk about whats already up.

Had there been no Iraq invasion, there would be no ISIS or any other extremist religious group running vast swaths of territory in the former Iraq and Syria.

    The solution is obvious--every single right winger who voted for that clown needs to get their asses geared up and take the first flight out to Syria, Iraq, etc. to go fight ISIS.

    It's called taking responsibility for one's actions, something the righties like to preach but (obviously) have yet to heed--

    the conservative morons were responsible for getting the aforementioned brain fart elected, so it's their job to clean it up.

    So what are you waiting for--why are you still here?
    It's Bush's fault and not the terrorists. Right?
