    meh, a lot of people dodged the draft. All I'm saying is I wouldn't want to be on the team that has to clear his house. The man is an embodiment of pure evil. Wouldn't be surprised if they found shoes made out of orphans in his basement.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Yeah but did they support it. Cheney supported it. He had no problem sending other people to fight his wars.

    Re: Would you go to war to defend the USA?

    It all depends on what "defending America" means. If it refers to ideology like the justifications we have used for other wars than no. If it is because we were attacked or there was an imminent attack then probably. It would have to be a country attacking us and not some "suspected" group of citizens. We used the justification of the possibility of communism spreading to fight the Vietnam war and that really did not have anything to do with us except a fear of "communism" spreading. Fear of thought is no reason to kill people.

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    You mean brainwashing by the U.S, media?

    "10. Myth: If it is not mentioned in the media, then it is not real. So the CIA’s policy of mass mind control and collective brainwashing can’t be real because the TV news channels and other media outlets never mention it.

    Fact: To a large degree, the CIA and the mainstream media are one and the same. The U.S. government’s state media is not like the Chinese, Russian, Cuban, or Iranian state media, but it is still a state media. The only difference is there is the illusion in America that there is a separation between the private sphere of news coverage and the official sphere of power. But in reality, there is no separation. Officials in the highest positions of power in Washington manage the news in America, direct the national conversation, cover up uncomfortable truths, and set the official standards for public debate. They are totalitarian thugs who masquerade as defenders of freedom and providers of security."

    The OP question is too vague. Would I drop bombs on a country in the name of "defending Amurrica" because someone above me in rank points at them and alleges they're a threat? Probably not. If someone from that country had committed some act within mine, would I go drop bombs on his? Well that's not defending, it's avenging. If people from that country were literally militarily invading my country and killing fellow residents, yes I would go to war, and yes it would be defense.

    Psh, that's small potatoes compared to their activities in the 60's and 70's. Unless you're detained in one of their black sites. MKULTRA/NAOMI/whatever the hell they call it now is alive and well.
