    Re: How Maliki and Iran Outsmarted the US on Troop Withdrawal

    I'm not disagreeing that it was a war of choice, as it is obvious that the intelligence we based our decision to go to war on was flawed to begin with and massaged to reach a foregone conclusion of invasion.

    I reject, however, any implication that the U.S. armed forces are terrorists. Invaders, fine. I can even live with occupiers, though clearly that no longer applies, and since we left voluntarily, we can't have been quite as evil and nasty as some believe. But the meaning of "terrorist" in our language is being stretched to the point that it will have about as much meaning as "Nazi" does now.

    Don't be intellectually lazy Dave, you seem smarter than that.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Go ahead and read the Patriot Act and then tell me why we would not be considered "terrorists" in Iraq or Libya. We terrorized the populace and I repeat that "we brought war and death to their country." If that doesn't constitute terrorism, I don't know what does. 100,000+ dead Iraqis. Millions fled to Syria. How many maimed and they won't be saying the Iranians or Russians did it, but the good ol' boys from the USA. You can't get enough perfume to treat this turd. Our soldiers certainly deserve leaders who chose honorable engagements, not wars of choice to profit the Big Energy network.
