    God I can't believe what a state of denial you and people like you are in......Your facing the biggest challenge in the history of this country and you call it fear mongering.....Heaven forbid that a nuclear cloud does not show up over the city you live in.........

    Yeah a bunch of camel jockeys with soviet-area weapons who are such desperate pussies that the only way they even stand a chance of taking out our troops is by blowing themselves up - yeah that's our "biggest challenge"?

    What about Hitler and Nazi Germany. Or the USSR? These terrorists aren't any more of a challenge than the average gansta who pulls a dry-by shooting in some ghetto. They have about as much change of getting a nuke as the Unimbomber did. We should pull our troops out and let these whores kill themselves off like they're doing in Iraq right now.

    The biggest challenge in the history of this country? Are you ****ing serious!? You seriously have to be ****ing with me at this point. No one with a functioning brain would make that comment in earnest. The Revolution maybe is greater. The Civil War maybe one of the biggest events which threatened to tear apart the Republic. WWI, WW II. Yeah, those are all a bigger challenge then some douche bag terrorists.

    I repeat. In the past 9 years terrorists killed a number of people equal to 10 % of our annual deaths due to traffic fatalities. Since 9/11 3,000 dead on the soil of the 50 States proper. You can even throw in Ft. Hood if you want, not going to make a difference (though it was more military related). Since 9/11 approximately 315,000 Americans have died in traffic accidents. 3,000 by terrorists in the past 9 years....315,000 by cars. That's 2 friggin orders of magnitude! And you want me to freak out because of terrorists? You're nuts! If I'm not going to live my life in fear of cars, I'm not about to piss my pants because you're trying to fear monger for terrorism to excuse bigger, more expensive, more intrusive government. That's far more a threat than any terrorist will ever be.

    If them camel jockies can get a nuke from North Korea or China you mught be singing another tune there..........As far as the Nazis go that was a different era...They were not blowing up the twin towers or the pentagon and the USSR we had a thing called detente in that if they ever came after us we would destroy them..Huge difference......

    If some terrorist group sets of a dirty nuke in NY or LA who the **** are you going to retaliate against???????????

    Take your ****ing head out of the sand and wake up before its to late.........I stand by my statement..........

    As I said one dirty nuke planted in NY or LA can change all that....think about it........

    What's a dirty bomb going to do? Not much. It's a very limited range weapon and they type of non-fusionable material we'd be talking about wouldn't increase one's chance of cancer any more than a tanning bed. People freak out about nuclear material because they don't understand it. A dirty bomb is A) A low probability, B) Not as devastating as you think. I'm not freaking out about stupid **** like that when there is a much greater threat to my freedom and liberty...our ever expanding, out of control government.

    Because they thought they could win, and didn't fully understand the on the ground situation?

    Actually, our military should have been exclusively in Afghanistan to begin with and should have left Iraq out of the equation.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
