The thing people disassociate from that major attack is that we have lost citizens when other nations had flights bombed, have lost them in foreign attacks, and then of course the attacks on our marine base in Lebanon in the 1980s.
    This is nowhere near a new problem, terrorists are, like any other group interested in fulfilling their own goals

    Correct.

    And until they change their goals, we will likely continue to launch drone attacks on them.

    When they stop trying to kill us we might be able to think about leaving them alone.

    Until that happens the drone attacks will likely continue.
    I don't think they've been trying to kill you or me. And I damn sure have nothing against women and children that are innocent which are being killed by our government. And I'm also not sure why so many have difficulty with the fact that this breeds resentment and support for those who seemed to be feared.

    Some people are hardheaded and have a hard time getting the message.

    It's hard to communicate with brainwashed religious fanatics whose primary goal in life is to either convert you to their religion or kill you.

    Indeed. Until there is some major change we are going to be in a stalemate.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    They are no less self-interested than we are. You're frankly fooling yourself if your think they have anyone's best interests in mind other than their own when they make these kinds of statements.

    They'd gladly watch us all burn if it meant that they had the opportunity to take our place.



    Correct.

    That's why I have little sympathy for them and mostly exercise my right to ignore their bull****.

    I know what their message is and I don't need to hear it again.

    Where we have been for quite a while.

    I suspect that the drone attacks will continue until we kill the last terrorist or they change their attitude.

    More drones and more missiles are being built right now.

    And people are being trained to deploy them.

    Bull****.

    that has nothing whatsoever to do with what's going on in the Middle East and other places right now in The Global War On Terrorism.

    Get a grip.

    Absolutely. I'm all for a diplomatic solution, but it seems to me there is one faction of very good people in the M.E. and another of very bad, and until we get the very bad rooted out we're going to be there in some capacity.

    This I like.
    Extra points for using the word "huzzah".
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I'm fine with all of this, in fact, we should use this for policy change. I think they have a point, and I have a solution. Leave them all to their own accord.

    We won't have anymore enemies. They obviously don't need our help or aid, they can fend for themselves.


    We will be over here thriving. You guys can debate socialism and watch Africa and the Middle East kill each other off. I don't care. I like America, I prefer to leave everyone else alone, build a giant wall around us, and poke our heads out to trade.
