I'm Canadian and Canadians died in the 9/11 attacks. Canada has it coming too because we took part in the first war against Iraq which I believe was just as phony as the next one. That's my position on the issue and it is very much in sync with Ron Paul's position. And btw, Ron Paul didn't say it was an inside job. He did say that the 9/11 attacks were used as justification for the phony war against Iraq. Is there really any way that an American can believe that their country 'didn't' have it coming for what their country did to the victims of US aggression in the M.E?
Thanks for asking.

Ben K, thanks, that confirms that some of you at least can get Al Jazeera. Sounds to me that not very many though. Nobody's proving it to me yet by reading what's on their main page. Not a big issue though, and off topic anyway.

A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
I don't know what you mean by 'a live one' and the reference to '2 months'. Is that a personal attack against me for my opinions here?
