    Sorry, as disgusting as this story is with regard to the Taliban and “crazies”, can’t get out of my mind the image of an 8 year old Iraqi girl, in her kitchen, with her head blown away by “shock and awe”. Amazing that a gross assassination attempt on a child is ’bad", but a gross killing of masses of children, in a war that we never should have started, is “hunky dory”.

    No, see, Saddam facilitated 9/11 and he had all these atomic weapons and we just had no choice but to invade Iraq. Sorry about any collateral damage, such as you described. And 4000+ American soldiers dead. And all the amputees and others that are mentally screwed up. And dead contractors, not that they matter.

    This is all according to Bush’s foreign policy advisors.
    -
    These same people are now Willard’s advisors.
    -
    And all Fox “News” viewers believe this is hunky dory and think a Willard presidency would be just swell.

    …and, then they perseverate over a single attack on an American embassy claiming it is all President Obama’s fault.

    Why didn’t ANYONE in D.C. listen when George Washington warned the country about “Foreign Entanglements” in his farewell address?

    Both are true. The invasion of Iraq was unjustified in every way. So was the assassination attempt of that girl in Pakistan. For what it’s worth, with the exception of the Southern Baptist Convention, every major Christian denomination in 2003 declared that an invasion of Iraq would be unjust and sinful.

    “We should not have given Bin Laden weapons and training because they were fighting the Soviets. We should not have supported Saddam before we decided it wasn’t in our best interests anymore. We shouldn’t be getting all of our goods from China with their human rights records. Blowing up innocent civilians because the country’s leaders are persecuting them is not a solution when we previously supported those same leaders while they were doing the same thing”.

    In Afghanistan we did not support the same leaders. The nut jobs came down from the mountains and started taking over.

    All you spoke of was done under Reagan with the help of Rep Charlie Wilson a Dem. It was done with true bi-partisan support, started when the Republicans had the White House and the Senate and the Democrats the house.

    Your wrong we should have supported them against the Soviets. They were booby trapping toys for the children it was an attempt at Genocide. We should have done it a lot sooner if anything.

    “The Taliban and the Evangelical Christians are so much alike in that they don’t want anyone to get educated, especially women. The GOP wants to dumb down our population so everyone will be stupid enough to believe their lies”.

    Not true, if all you can do is compare Evangelical Christians with the Taliban then it shows truly how uneducated you are. I am a Evangelical and I know our women are college educated and hard working.

    As for dumbing down the country explain the Democrats relationship to the Teachers Unions to me?

    And ain’t it a strange coincidence that Mitt’s rhetoric on Iran is a carbon copy of Dubya’s rhetoric on Iraq?

    Oh they did the first one was not until Jefferson and that had to do with the Barbary Pirates attacking our ships in the Mediterranean and rare operations off our shores.

    Right, I think the Republicans have seen how successful the Dems have been with the benefits of their dumbing down, they now are trying their hand at it.

    Yes if you remove any variation in names they are both hard line, who see that violence is next to godliness and have no problem killing people who get in their way. The difference is the USA has all the good mass kill weapons and the largest most active military on earth.
