quote: If you were taught American history correctly, you would know that the British labeled the colonial combatants as terrorists
quote: Don't think for a second that Americans are above doing whatever is necessary to accomplish their goals. This country was founded on that style of leadership and has thus far not waivered much in continuing that proud tradition. I only hope Americans have the spine and guts necessary to keep this trend going, but it isn't looking so good lately.
quote: That's a subject of debate. Presently, no. As long as American troops are in the terrorists back yards they will focus their efforts there. It's only once we sit back within our borders and relax that they will take a shot at us again on our home turf.
quote: It's a neverending cycle and Americans are rapidly moving towards Europe's dislike of conflict, pretty soon it will be up to China and others to do the dirty work if Americans stay on their present course. Such is the way of world powers it seems.
quote: China has shown it certainly has no problems doing what needs to be done to put down rebels and terrorists.
quote: so we can have their resources.
quote: What if a group of Americans killed 3000+ innocents in another country and that country started to bomb and occupy our streets? Would you be okay with that?

quote: I guess that reporter they raped half to death then took a video tape of her being beheaded was just keeping the Arab down right? So she had to die. Go tell her parents how justified they were and how much you understand their motivations.
quote: And that leads to 911? Really?
quote: These people have been radical nutjobs for thousands of years!! Read some goddamn history.
quote: The bodies of those Americans in Egypt are barely cold and you repeat this stupid shit? How dare you. Oh right, I guess the fact that an embassy was on their "holy soil" was justification in your eyes.
quote: You anti-American Liberals just love this issue, because you get to point and say "see? They hate America too!".

quote: I know I bang on about the USA a lot on here
quote: When in the last 1000 years has the Middle East EVER been a region free of hate, bigotry, violence and oppression?Are you even aware of the history? You obviously cannot be.
