    I think you've asked an important question, but there's a problem. I'm sorry but I don't understand the question. Would you rephrase it please? Thanks.

    No intelligent discussion? Pretty much just derision??

    Anyone who ridicules the possibility that terrorist groups may strike with nuclear weapons is an ostrich.

    Re: 'Al-Qaida on brink of using nuclear bomb'

    Excerpted from “'Al-Qaida on brink of using nuclear bomb'” By Heidi Blake and Christopher Hope, The Daily Telegraph, The Vancouver Sun, FEBRUARY 1, 2011
    Thousands of classified American cables obtained by the WikiLeaks website and passed to The Daily Telegraph detail the international struggle to stop the spread of weapons-grade nuclear, chemical and biological material around the globe.
    There's nothing very new in this story but for WikiLeaks providing the State Department cables detailing the constant effort to locate and identify the potential threats existing around the world and the reality that such attacks are not only quite plausible but may be actively under development by Al Qaeda today.

    Thank you, WikiLeaks.

    It's certainly a probability. I'm just not pissing my pants because of it.

    * Iraq's "brutal repression of its civilian population." Other countries are just as bad or worse. Our invasion killed a lot of Iraqis. That's pretty brutal.
    * Iraq's "capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people". We provided him with some of those WMDs he used. We used WMDs against other nations too.
    * Iraq's hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the alleged 1993 assassination attempt of former President George H. W. Bush, and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War. Revenge by Bush Jr is not a reason for war. How many US planes were shot down in the no fly zone?
    * Members of al-Qaeda, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq. The Al qaeda bases in Iraq were located in the north US protected no fly zone. Al Qaeda hated Saddam as much as GWB did.
    * Iraq's "continu[ing] to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations," including anti-United States terrorist organizations. The US supports dictators all over the world and have supported terrorist groups in South America.
    * The efforts by the Congress and the President to fight terrorists, and those who aided or harbored them. Saddam did not aid Al Qaeda
    * The authorization by the Constitution and the Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism. Saddam had nothing to do with terror attacks on the US Iran did.
    * Citing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution reiterated that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Saddam Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement. Creating a act does not give us the right to invade other countries.
    This isn't the thread to discuss the details. If you want go over the details then start a new thread and message me.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Imo there is almost a certainty that NYC will be attacked in the next half century with weapons of mass destruction. The genie is out of the bottle. The only way to reduce this possibility is for America to reduce its contact with the peoples of the eastern hemisphere. And to enforce discipline within the western hemisphere.

    A nuclear attack would kill hundreds of thousands. People still like to complain about the soldiers dying in the war or terror but don't understand that we are trying to protect this country. I wish soldiers didn't have to die, but unfortunately they do.

    I don't think either the American left or the American right is interested in securing America's borders. Their interests lie elsewhere.

    Most people in this country want the borders secured.
