    yes. that was wrong. the target was Al Queada Osama was the goal how good did you guys do with that. when your military followed asinine orders to start a mess on a second front you let the first target go. so you ****ed up both missions. big thumbs up to your military. mission accomplished. a large SNAFU. sounds like the current status quo.

    Is there debate on the first invasion? We did the right thing then, including not toppling Saddam. Done and over, the second invasion which we are still in is in contention for sure. I mean, do we add up how many civilians there are dead because of our invasion and occupation of the land? Not to mention our own side. I'm not a complete pacifist, as I understand there are times for action and it must be taken. But at the same accord, I'm not in favor for throwing my troops and military at a problem which isn't ours. If the Iraqi people wanted freedom, they could have fought for it themselves.

    Really? I didn't refuse to go to war by choosing not to sign up for the military?

    i will keep watch of the news for when you are attacked. not likely to happen. even if you pull in all your troops.

    What's easier to alter or control, the actions of millions or the actions of a few?
    if they are the people the millions. if they are the leaders because the US has no recall the leaders are impossible to control. that is why they do not keep their word. that is why Obama is a disappointment. that is why i left the US. there is no way to get them out once seated.

    I have a scenario for you: 19 Americans go to Brazil, train for and plan a terrorist operation, with the santion of the Brazilian government, then attack London. Who should the British go after?
    Saudi was as guilty for 9/11 as anyone. yes. Iraq was not guilty of anything on 9/11.

    oh yes they were they were not in bed with the Bush's so they got a pass like the Saudi's were.

    It pains me to be the first to bring this to your attention.
    sure defend Bush's buddies. that what you all do. now tell me what Iraq did. oh i'll help they did nothing except exist. so don't hand me that crap about the Saudi's.

    Whatever else you garnered about the greatness that is the Good Reverend is of your own creation.
    no pretty much true the great Reverend is as phony as his positions. they are like cloth blowing in the wind. they simply collect dust.

    as the positions you support are opposed to each other you have no positions they are moot. you don't even know what side of the fence on which you stand. LOL so yeah you are pretty laughable.
