Did you not suggest that Iraq was involved in terrorist activities against the United States, thus demanding retaliation on our part? Or was Post #68 just irrelevant tripe?

Bare, your memory is getting as short as your 2.8cm thingy.

My memory is fine.

My comments were based on Multi's Post 43 comment "
Quote:
What the left doesn't want to face is the fact that the bush admin did everything it said it was going to do to fight off another attack on our soil and look what happened!

It worked for 8 yrs, pretty fricking good considering islam extremists declared war against the U.S.
Now, unless I am mistaken, and the reports from the Pentagon spokesmen have been misleading for the past six years, Al Qaeda has attacked US interests in Afghanistan and Iraq on a pretty much monthly basis since we started ops there. I know, some will say "why, that is just military". YES, we made it much more convenient for them to attack America by going to their sandbox.

The point was they had not attacked HERE, which is what everyone seems to have been so excited that Bush succeeded in making happen.

Now, I can argue that our embassies ARE US soil but, read the post. Is that what you think Multi meant?

But good to see that Junior High School humor is still well intact there bottom1. We will all be so proud when you graduate to your first attempt at witty adult vituperation.

Keep thinking that.

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.

Context grasshopper. I was referencing Multi's original statement. See how that linkage thing works [something you might have noticed if, when you went back to Post 75 you had wandered up to the Multi quote that I referenced, and bolded in the post].

You do need breadcrumbs, don't you?

How presumtively arrogant of you to require that one read the whole thread, plus your postings in three other threads, to qualify to respond to your most recent contribution. You gave an imprecise answer that on its face was wrong and I reacted to it. Enough said.

Yes I said Iraq was involved in supporting international terrorism. What does that have to do with Georgia or any of your other non-sensical ramblings?
