It looks like the evil U.S. could take a few lessons from a-Q...

Torture Chamber Found in Iraq
Wow, sounds almost as bad as a cruise missle sneak attack on innocent children playing on a playground in Baghdad. But of course Jayhawk, I am remiss. Our slaughter of innocent people for some made-up reason is just so morally superior to what al-Queda is doing.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Way to go FoTL, you and Jim just LOVE to slam America and any Republican leadership don't you?
Hey pal, it's your Democrat controlled Congress, why aren't you doing something to stop it?
Oh, I forgot, the Surge isn't working and we are losing the war with our NAZI troops or was that last week. Have to check with Harry and Nancy to see what we can come up with next, right?

Just because America stepped in this shit does not make it good shit. Shit is shit. If you lose or give up your ability to see shit for what it is, you are not doing America or anyone else, including yourself any good. Jiim

I believe that could be more accurately stated "sometimes you step in shit while cleaning out the barn..." As, in my experience cleaning up after animals in a barn, stepping in shit happens but is not a prerequisite to getting the job done. To suggest stepping in shit is a specific step in the sequence of events for cleaning the barn is, well, unique. Jim

Who intentionally targeted children? That's a war crime.

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.

I actually admire FLT for his passion but his beliefs are out there on the edge of space where the lack of oxygen starts to effect his thought process...........

Passion without wisdom is fanaticism.
