    It's not a fact, that's your opinion.

    You're conflicted, pro-choice but not pro-ending unborn childrens lives....

    Fr it or against it, it was effective, as I'm sure you'll agree.

    What value is it exactly?

    First, I'm surprised you think the Taliban are terrorists.... and if that's the case, I personally would want to enrage terrorists more such that those terrorists are identified and killed, wherever they may be. I see the value of pissing on terrorists and believe such a recruitment tool is a GOOD thing as more terrorists are identified and removed from the available gene pool on this planet.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I agree, but I wonder how our muslim president will handle this.

    If he is smart, he will shut up. Ya, like that is going to happen.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I'd rather not get banned from this thread.
    Then what are you saying? You're not outraged, and you have no sympathy for the Taliban. I feel the same way in that regard. This is what I was responding to:

    1. In the big picture, I would agree that we are 'better'. However, in this specific instance, these specific Marines did something gratuitous and arrogant that the Taliban would do. Consequently, in this specific moment, no they aren't better.
    I guess, in hindsight, I can reason with that. TheNextEra brought in a post about the moral/honor code of the soldier, so I can understand that. While the soldiers did something that would normally be considered wrong and vile, I find it to be justified, since the people being peed on are murderers. I have no empathy for those dead.

    You won't get banned from this thread if you're able to be logical and civil.

    If you're serious, all credibility has been lost.

    Actually, the Administration at this point is pretty much engaged in full "damage control" mode, which is the expected response. Panetta and Clinton for instance are reassuring Karzai that there will be an investigation in order to salvage what little is left of the peace negotiation process and our relationship with the Afghan government.

    I'm typically a social conservative, but I see no objective data that Obama is a Muslim.

    ...or a socialist.
    ...or a corporatist.
    ...or a fascist.
    ...or a communist.
    ...or a Kenyan.
    ...or the Anti-Christ.

    Got data?

    Even if he were a Muslim president, so what? Presidents can only be Christian or Atheist?

    Yes and no, the group that committed the atrocities in Mumbai was Lashkar-e-Taiba, a group linked to the Taliban but are not themselves Taliban per se. However, they are also one of the groups that our troops are fighting in Afghanistan.
