Where did you get that notion?Think we should nuke Russia tonight?
Actually we don't know that.The terrorists don't have nuclear weapons.
So you're just as a hyperpartisan as others here?Yeahl, right. If the terrorists had a functioning bomb in their mitts, they would have blown up London, Singapore, Washington, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Miami, or Jerusalem long before now. I mean, they do it to prove their dicks are bigger, which, I hear, really impresses the 72 virgin goats they get up there in Paradise, and who can have a dick bigger than the guy who rides the bomb to heaven, just like Slim Pickens?
Btw, you haven't addressed my post.
Why would I? I agree. Bush is an idiot.Because Bush is an idiot.
Go ahead, refute that one.

That's pretty responsible of the President, don't you agree?
You simply MUST agree that in time of war the President is under no obligation to protect the lives of the enemy at a cost to our own people, right?
Sorry you don't feel the same way.
How about if you considered fact that all projections regarding the invasion of the Japanese home islands was going to cost over five million casualties on both sides (i mean total)? Does your awestruck mind suddenly see the light and realize that the use of the bomb was the best option?
Probably not. Most people who freak out over what we did to Hiroshima aren't capable of being objective about it. Never mind that we killed more jap civillians with incendiaries than with nukes....certainly people just can't figure out that dead is dead, they get all tangled up in the how, as if dying in a firestorm caused by a nuclear flashpoint is different than dying in a napalm storm.
What I want to see is an Iran that can't build a nuclear bomb.
Unlike you people, I don't want those weapons in the hands of terrorists or crazy nations.

Sorry, but that simply is not the case.
If our now Ex-President Bush decided to nuke the Middle East to save the lives of the service members that have died, that still would be wrong.
It seems you are the kind of person that doesn't mind civilians killed as long as it is your side doing it, but cries foul when the other side does it.
Which nation is al Qaeda working for?
Oh. No one's claiming them.
When they get a nation, they can stop being considered mere fanatic murders...and we can bomb their nation to sometime before the stone age.
IMO Mecca should have died a flaming thermonuclear death on the afternoon of 9-11-2001, and the ashes scattered with more nukes to ensure that the "holy city" was evenly distributed all over the word.
I'm easy. Their sneak attack kills thousands of US citizens, our response kills millions. It's what happens when the rats bite the lion.
Perhaps you noticed that Japan didn't issue a declaration of war in 1941?
But we magnamanimously gave them multiple opportunities to surrender, all of which they refused.
How much warning did the muslims give the US when they stole some airplanes and used them as weapons?
Oh, that's right.
(Here's the expectant wait for someone to proclaim BUSH KNEW BUSH KNEW AND DID NOTHING ABOUT IT. Yawn. An argument as empty as the head that will post it. Rather than me responding, do something useful, state exactly what you FEEL Bush should have done and what you FEEL the total cost to the nation would have been if your plan was implemented.)
As for the Bush knew thing, he knew that it was a possibilty of terrorists using planes, that should have at least warranted elevated levels at airports should it not?
Oh, they didn't. Al qaeda was acting as the armed forces of Afghanistan, and Afghanland sent absolutely no warning whatsoever that they were declaring war on us.
Any idiot could see it was a threat. The problem is the U.S. underestimated them. BIG MISTAKE.
