    You're pretty good at this. Someone points out a flaw in your logic and you answer with a reference to Neocons, Christianity and a possible other excuse that does not fit at all with reports coming from leaders of other countries and intelligence information. You should get in to this professionally. You may even be able to find enough people who agree with you (regardless of reason or evidence to the contrary) that they will help you spread this crap. You critisize Christians for what you think is a contradiction of the laws of physics (as though we are all looking diligently for a red guy with horns and hooves) and yet can not see the glaring difference between what your side wants to believe and all of the evidence to the contrary.

    It was not a place that was bombed, it was protests and attacks on American interests in 21 different countries in a short time frame. The odds of that being spontaneous are shorter than your odds of being taken seriously by anybody over 10 years old.

    You are not very good at this because you don't even know the thread nor my post was talking about the widespread attacks.

    You clearly failed to understand what I meant about the Satan correlation so I will try to help you understand. The Christian right's theology is not based on love, but fear. This is the springboard for every platform they have and they have long used "Satan" as a scapegoat that is everywhere but nowhere at the same time. This is how the neocons have framed al qaeda and the media is all too happy to help because a fearful population is a ball of wet tax clay. Don't be surprised of another attack on the US either on the continental soil or very close to it. 9-11 was a long time ago and people are forgetting about the mythical War on Terror and focusing too much on actual issues.

    Regarding the widespread attacks, the fact they happened is not proof in and of itself they were all planned and coordinated. If anyone needs help understanding why, just ask.
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    I hope Obama will retaliate or we will see more problems.

    Retaliate on whom?

    I'm also sure you're right. That is why there has been constant peace in Afghanistan since we got there over a decade ago.

    The thread is about the attacks, not your convoluted opinions on the motives of Christians. No one who is a Christian is surprised by the pseudo intellectual gotcha games of someone who does not believe what they do. Incidentally I was an atheist for 20 years and thought I was all smart and stuff too. Turned out I was wrong, and once I went outside of Catholic doctrine I was able to grasp the concepts of Christianity without the guilt and control issues of the Vatican. It's not the first time religion has been used by a government to control the masses, just look at the current administration's stance on Global Warming. I suggest we get back on topic.

    This is the OP I'm responding to in this thread:

    Al-Qaeda says attack on U.S. consulate in Libya

    Well, well, well....what's that? Another confirmation?

    "Libyan president: 'No doubt' attack 'preplanned' - POLITICO.com

    Meanwhile, back at the Department of State:

    Ambassador Susan Rice: Libya Attack Not Premeditated - ABC News


    LOL"

    Which OP are you responding to?

    The terrorists would kill Americans and hide in Afghanistan.
