So, you would have done the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and you're stupid enough to expect a different outcome?

It didn't matter where we went. The Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us. The only thing we could do was choose the place.
How about we just kill more than one bird with one stone, huh?

Bush did it differently that the Soviets. That's why the Soviets lost and Bush won.
Mission accomplished.))))))))

But, please tell us why you think we could have done the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets and not experienced the exact same thing the Soviets experienced.....

<quoted text> Mere hypothetical horse pucky, it is far more likely that an Obama drone will hit them. Let's face it, Obama kills innocent civilians with drones overseas and drives them into poverty here in the US. Not a very nice man.
Not a very honest man, because in Fort hood: diversity rules

What do you call it when a self-proclaimed “Soldier of Allah” shouting “Allahu Akhbar” opens fire on dozens of US citizens — killing and maiming as many innocents as he can?

You call it terrorism, if you’re sane.

And “workplace violence,” if you’re the Obama administration.

That’s right: Three years after Nidal Malik Hasan’s jihadist shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in which he murdered 13 people and wounded 29 more, the Defense Department still refuses to classify the attack as what it is: an act of terror.

Instead, it continues to label the shooting officially a case of “workplace violence.”

This isn’t just a question of linguistics; avoiding the terror designation means victims and their families “do not get combat-related special compensation that provides disability pay,” reports the military news site Stars and Stripes.

Which is why survivors and families of those killed released a video this month asking Obama & Co. to do right by the troops — and classify the attack as terrorism.

Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, featured in the film, was shot six times but denied benefits that would accrue to a soldier injured in an act of terror or a battle overseas.

Fellow victims at Fort Hood “were killed and wounded by ... somebody who was there that day to kill soldiers, to prevent them from deploying,” says Manning.

“And if that’s not an act of war, an act of terrorism, I don’t know what is.”

Precisely. And there’s a paper trail a mile long that proves Manning’s point.

Before the bloody day, Hasan had defended suicide bombings and told fellow soldiers that Muslim service members would be justified in killing US troops.

Was he reported? Nope. Try promoted.

(So much for his being a disgruntled worker.)

The FBI even knew of Hasan’s communications with Anwar al-Awlaki, then one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, in which Hasan asked about carrying out jihad against the United States.

Yet in President Obama’s remarks at a memorial service for Fort Hood’s fallen, he never used the word terrorism. Not once.

Why is the administration trying to rewrite history? Comments by the Army’s chief of staff at the time, Gen. George Casey, might offer clues:“As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”

There was an effort, that is, to dismiss Islamist terror — and not offend Muslims.

It is better in Obama's administration to deny heroes and their families all of the benefits and honors they are due.

Obama needs to rectify the situation.

In 2009, he said that, for “families who have lost a loved one, no words can fill the void that’s been left.” Which may be true.

But at least he can correct the record, call the massacre at Fort Hood by its true name — terror — and accord a proper measure of respect to troops who’ve been denied it these three long years.

It’s past time to act.

Clinton & Republican Congress = balanced budget & surplus

Thanks to Republicans in Congress, but mostly thanks to the dot-com boom that was allowed to happen by the new technologies developed in the Reagan years.(If you noticed, we didn't get any new technologies from the scoundrels Obama gave money to. All we got was the money disappeared and the companies went bankrupt.)

Bush & basically the same Congress = Debt & deficit.

Thanks to the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring a global war on the United States.
However, even while fighting a war, the Republicans turned over to the Democrats all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, with a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars; which the Democrats have exploded since the deficit ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT and more than trippled the debt to over 16 trillion dollars. This was largely due to an economic collapse caused by the Democrats' subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.

Paul lying POS Ryan voted to expand government.
Paul lying POS Ruyan voted to double the GD debt.

... really....
Obama is burned toast in a week. Get out the fire hoses.

What city does Obama's base plan to burn when Obama loses?
Do you think they'll burn Washington down?
You know that hasn't been done since a foreign invading army did it in 1812.
Is Obama's base as bad for the United States as an invading army?

As for Romney disrespecting Obama, Obama does the same to Romeny to try to win too. Why would Obama care if he is disrespected in the eyes of God, when he is of Muslim faith, and not a Christian. You sound like you are fighting hard for that Obama Walfare To Work (not to work). I don't claim to know every inch of the Bible, but doesn't God say, if you don't work, you don't eat?

Joss Whedon: Mitt Romney Right for ‘Zombie Apocalypse’
The man behind “The Avengers,”“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly” released a satirical video endorsing Mitt Romney this Halloween weekend, saying the Republican candidate has some unique qualifications.
Romney has “the vision and determination to cut through business as usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to a zombie apocalypse,” writer and director Joss Whedon says in the joke video.
Users watched the parody more than 800,000 times during its first 24 hours on the Internet.
Though clearly joking, Whedon plays on themes used in more serious ads. Romney has promised to create 12 million jobs to help lift Americans out of poverty, but Whedon warns that a Romney administration would favor the wealthy, leading to economic and societal deterioration.
“It’s his commitment to ungoverned corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos, the kind of chaos you can’t buy back,” Whedon says.“Money is only so much paper to the undead.”
Whedon also warns against a Romney agenda on social issues:“Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in health care, education, social services, reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting: all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland.”
The video mimics actual campaign ads, showing Whedon in his home and speaking directly to the camera while seeming to go about his normal routine — which turns out to be stocking up for the pending apocalypse.

You're running away from this like a scalded dog....

The only question that isn't answered, other than the minute details of exactly who in Al Qaeda did what when they put into action the attack they planned before the video Obama lied about even existed, is who told Susan Rice what to say over all the television networks and at the UN?

Who gave her the lie to repeat?
It's unlikely to be Obama. There's some difference between what he says and what the US Ambassador to the UN says.(That's a problem in and of itself.)

So, WHO told Susan Rice what to say?
