    Why not take over Saudi Arabia? did you seriously just ask that? first off they are probaly our best arab allies and other wise why would we ever directly take over a country today? Direct impearialism ended with the 20th century and im sure a very small minortity in america are in favor of it. After opec embargoing us during the Yom Kippur war we realized how dependent we are on them for our petroluem, since then you'd notice increased government intrests in the middle east and particularly the persian gulf. Look at our involvement in Iran untill the Shah was over thrown, Iraq, and our overall friendliness with most of these countries.

    What binds us together and makes us fellows in your opinion? It isn't a matter of consanguinity, blood, family or clan. It isn't an ethnic tie. It isn't shared experience, identity or consciousness that brings us together. What unites us and makes us fellow Americans?

    Is it the legal technicality of citizenship based on an accident of birth? Hutus and Tutsis are fellow Rwandans, but are mortal enemies.

    Or is it an idea that ostensibly unites us? If so, what idea would that be? A shared belief in equality of outcome? I don't think so.

    Or is it a shared belief in individual liberty? Once I would have said adherence to the ideal of individual liberty united us. But in my opinion that ideal is dead for about half of the country.

    Does multiculturalism unite us? I don't think so. Multiculturalism produces separate identities and division.

    Are we fellows because we both subscribe to a notion of Locke's Social Contract? Maybe at one time that was true, but not now. From my perspective the Social Contract has been breached. And as everyone knows, once a party to a contract commits a material breach of that contract all other parties are relieved of all of their obligations to perform further under the terms of that contract. I believe the Social Contract has been breached in a very material fashion. Thus, I recognize no further legal obligations to others under the terms thereof.

    For the life of me I can't think of a single thing that makes us fellow Americans in any meaningful sense.

    and when I became president I would have you tried for capital treason or I would hand you over to whatever country hated the United States the most and had the most horrific forms of soul withering torture. Then I would send a kill team to exterminate those who you allowed to take Bush. If they had killed bush than that country would get "Dresdened" If not, the leaders would get fifty caliber enemas

    It sux to be all alone in a hostile world. That's why it's not a good idea to convert domestic opponents into internal enemies.

    I bet a lot of people who called GWB "Chimpy Bush" now regret having done so when they see how their president is scorned.

    Ok first off it isnt treason as it is defined in our law if Bush was not holding any legal office at the time. 2nd when you try someone in America you don't send them to another country to be punished thats kind of the point of having tried in America. Not to mention the rest of this is just pure insanity, but im relativly sure this was just rant.
