    since I haven't lumped all muslims together and called them terrorists, the answer would have to be "no". was just pointing out the rampant hypocrisy of many on the left. (notice I said many and not all )

    So are you saying sociopathic behavior would be quelled had thier not been a war?

    Well, it hasn't been quelled with war.

    But no, I'm saying there is a reason why war should not be something we enter into frivolously. It shold be something that saddens us even when it is justified. And anger us when it is not.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    unless you have a double standard, then you believe those now incarcerated, but unconvicted at camp delta - some for almost nine years, are innocent until a court determines them to be guilty

    Muslim terrorists that attack unarmed civilians because they traditionally lose more than they win when they attack armed soldiers. They are cowards. Those type of people deserve to rot
    it's a matter of perspective. disenfranchised muslims likely view those warriors as freedom fighters, opposed to an occupational force, much as American forefathers viewed those who fought for our nation's freedom. those American patriots also refiused to stand in straight line formations and fight conventionally - because that would have placed them at a disadvantage to prevail. what causes the muslim fighters' strategy to be any different?

    The Haditha Marines were charged, too. John Murtha even convicted them on national TV. They were all found innocent of any wrong doing and walked. I remember back then, how plenty of Lefties swore up-n-down that they were guilty and deserved to die. No trial, no testimony, no nothing; just guilty, die.

    I see, so this wasn't you...
    as I said, muslims hate us for who we are, fundamentally.
    Sounds a lot like lumping to me.

    for one thing, the american forefathers did not routinely attack unarmed civilians. there is a big difference between using unconventional methods against an armed opponent and murdering unarmed civilians.
