That's the whole butcher's bill. What i asked about was who was killing whom.

Still having a hard time getting somebody to deliver that.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

Quite simple Bot, its all mathematics and math can't be wrong. My good and RESPECTED friend,

America is killing everybody.
The terrorists are also killing everybody.
It was the America that brought the terrorist into that country that are killing everybody.
Therefore America is responsible for killing everybody. GOT IT?

I think they get Israel and America mixed up or they think it is the same.

If it happens outside the U.S., it isn't our problem.

Yes it is.

It is much much smaller world than it used to be and we all connected one way or another.

Even our two oceans don't give us enough protection.

You want to rise up and rule the whole world, eh? I hope you have a better plan than Germany had... Oh, and leave me out of it, please.

And in fact, "our two oceans" afford us a great deal of protection.
