"The crisis will end when fear changes sides" - Pablo Iglesias Turrión
"Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn
As for democracy, I don't think anyone would argue that neoconservatives don't love the word. It's the substance that they seem to loathe. This is no contradiction at all if you look at it from the Machiavellian point of view. In that case "democracy" is just a catchy brand name that one can use to sell hegemony to the masses at home. It may well be that neocons other than Ledeen are less clear in their thinking about it, i.e. they actually believe we're trying to spread real democracy. If so, they would also have to believe that democracy necessarily leads to compliance with American demands, since that's what we invariably are trying to enforce. This is a contradiction of sorts, but you can't blame anyone but the neocons for that. No one is accusing them of being altogether coherent in their thinking.

Tyranny by the majority remains tyranny.
I don't condone terrorism. The sacrifice of any innocent life is never justified. My point is to listen and to learn the reasons that motivate them to attack us. And our meddling in their countries, is the principal reason why they came here.And if other people would stop giving those sick bastards the benefit of the doubt that doesn't exist, and if they stopped giving those animals excuses, it would be easier to exterminate them.
Well first they don't have elected officials . But even it was the case, we're talking about terrorists here. These people are irrational enough to sacrifice the life of innocent people. When they see foreign troops in their land that are accepted by their corrupt leaders, and some drones are causing some "collateral damage" on some family, do you think they're gonna ask us politely to leave? no their reaction will be to take revenge any way it's possible.If necessary, Sharron Angle's Second Amendment Solution on those elected treasonous elected officials is a valid Constitutional option.Would you agree if Russia or China decide to build a military inside the u.s?
I'd campaign to impeach my elected officials.
Murdering babies in Moscow because my political leaders in Washington invited the foe inside is not logical, productive, or moral.
So much for your attempt to establish moral equivalency with and sympathy for baby-murdering terrorists.
The problem is in many case, our foreign policies allows a lot of atrocity to occur consciously or not.They violated universal laws of human decency and thereby deserve to be shot when found.
They're terrorists, not humans.
Nope i find this statement pretty offensive. And our insane foreign policy is what caused 9/11. We were allies with Saddam, supported him with money, training, weapons and other technology for years. Same with Bin laden. We're fabricating our own enemies.That policy was extremely effective, getting millions of Iraqis and Iranians to kill each other at very little expense to the US.
You don't like it when foreign policy works?
This was a collective punishment. Those sanctions which were aimed at Saddam, only hurt the Iraqi people. This was pretty stupid, and caused a lot of resentment not against him but against the people who imposed those sanctions.No. Saddam Hussein never had to starve his own countries children. Since those deaths were caused by Saddam, not the United States or the rest of the world, can you explain your angst?

Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
Churches in Manhattan - Google Maps
Mosques in Manhattan - Google Maps
Why are you even asking "how many Muslims live in the area"? Should I ask how many Christians live in my area and use that number to determine how many churches should go in around the city I live in? The answer to that question is "WTF NO!"
Just like any other religious location, if they can't get enough people coming through they will eventually close down. And I highly doubt this Islamic Center will have any problems getting enough people to go there.
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams
So most of it could have been resolved with proper diplomacy first. Maybe saying instead something like "The United States would have very negative opinions of open hostilities and depending on the situation; may have to get involved should open hostilities develop".
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
