    -The Saudi National Guard bombing in November 1995, which killed five Americans. All four of the men convicted and executed for the bombing were Saudis.

    -The Khobar Towers bombing in June 1996, which killed 19 Americans. Of the 14 men indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for that bombing, 13 were Saudi Arabian, including all five of the men who drove and detonated the truck bomb on the day of the attack.

    -The Nairobi embassy bombing in August 1998, which killed 12 Americans. Both of the men who drove and detonated the truck bomb were Saudis.

    -The USS Cole bombing in October 2000, which killed 17 Americans. Both of the men who drove and detonated the explosives-laden boat used in that attack were Saudis.

    -The Riyadh residential compound bombings in May 2003, which killed nine Americans. All nine of the suicide bombers killed in the attacks were Saudis.

    -The Mosul mess tent bombing in December 2004, which killed 18 Americans. The lone suicide bomber responsible was identified in numerous press reports as a foreign insurgent from Saudi Arabia.
    Hey Joe, I see a pattern
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Let's get the hell out of dodge. I'm so tired of this war. It's ridiculous. For some reason, the Republicans are all happy about spending our money in a different country but try to get health care reform passed and OH NO THE SKY IS FALLING!

    What do you mean try? Don't you mean shove down the throats of the American people the take over of 1/6 of the US economy? And against the wishes of those American people at that?

    Most of those terrorists were trained, given sanctuary by and recieved financial assistance from Iran, Afghanistan and Syria. I see a pattern as well.

    Personally, I think we should have started on The West Bank and went East, stopping at the Indian border.
