    He has set up elaborate defenses to kill that gopher from caddyshack because it was on his golf course. That gopher learned arabic and became fundamentalist. Last week, that gopher captured an beheaded a pigeon.

    On Jan. 20, 1981, Iran released 52 Americans who had been held hostage for 444 days, minutes after the presidency had passed from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan. The hostages were placed on a plane in Tehran as Reagan delivered his inaugural address.
    Interesting how the movie argo didn't really address that. The world respects power and resolve, and openly mocks weakness like Obama.

    Don't you think various homegrown boys can do the same kind of damage and kill the same amount of people as a major attack?

    This group has more money than they know what to do with, so I would say that makes them a bigger threat.

    They can finance their own attacks.

James Foley was simply the first and as long as we keep doing the same things over and over then the so-called war on terror will never end.

    If the US truly wants to stop terror attacks against its own citizens then they have to adopt a non-interventionist foreign policy. Other people dont hate us because of our freedoms- thats bull**** neocon propaganda, they hate us because we meddle in other countries. We need to stop minding other people's business. We create our own Frankenstein monsters- and Americans are dying for nothing because of it.
    What you are saying is that not only should the US kill the actual terrorists but the people that might become terrorists in the future.

    I can get behind that, go for it.

    If the group is saying they will kill as many Americans, or other people, as they can, take them at their word and attack them first.

    Do not say "I don't believe them, you can't take them seriously"

    That would be a mistake.

    Can we all stop pretending we can have a war against a tactic?

    A war on 'terrorism' is just a stupid term - and should be eliminated from the conversation. One cant even define terror appropriately - why is an IED a terror weapon yet a drone strike isnt?

    The continued use of this terrible phrase is leading us to an unending war against anything that we dont like and can successfully label 'terror'. And by calling people 'terrorists' you reduce them to a person carrying out a tactic... that is undefined to the point where someone can certainly call anyone in the world a 'terrorist'.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Are you trying to equate the two sides?

    Do you not see a difference between people killing other people for no reason and the other side killing those people for the first killings?

    If you dont understand the difference I dont think explaining it further will help.

    Nothing is being eliminated from conversation, so make yourself comfie.

    There are actually one hundred sides. Do you only think there are two?

    And who has killed people for no reason? The 911 hijackers? No. They were quite clear about their reasons - they want the US troops out of Arab nations.

    You think the US has not killed people for no reason? Explain the 100K Iraqis that died in the last war.... was every single one of those a combatant? Were they all happy to see the US come 'liberate' them? And what did Iraq have to do with anything anyway? We still are arguing that point and dont seem to have a great answer, yet I know Iraqi refugees here in the US who've lost most of their family (and who were apolitical and innocent victims), but you are offended that I dont see a difference between THEIR terror and OUR non-terror?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
