    Which administration did that happen in again?
    Which wrong country were we lied into fighting a war again?
    Remember, 4,500 dead soldiers for fighting a lie--plus 22 more a day since due to suicide !

    Agreed. These countries like Iraq, Saudi are driving terror.

    As with the genocide of Iraqi civilians last decade in a war based on Cheney lies ?

    Are you doubting that groups like ISIL and Al Qaeda exist? Or are those lies?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    then let me ask you something: if the united states committed such atrocities, how can you justify stating that we are any different then the terrorists themselves.

    Because it isn't hurting the terrorists in that case. It's just killing innocent civilians. Drag the families of the terrorists out in front of the store and put a gun to their heads.

    McVeigh is the face of far right extremist militias--as with Bundy's domestic terrorists and the Branch Davidians .
