Can any Liberal explain why the President thanked Putin for help in Boston?
Moscow. Russia and the United States agreed Saturday to step up cooperation in their fight against terror in the wake of news that two ethnic Chechens were suspected of organizing the deadly Boston Marathon bombings.

The Kremlin said Russian leader Vladimir Putin called US President Barack Obama to once again express his condolences and discuss ways the two sides can work more closely on security in the runup to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

I'm trying to get some people to at least rethink what caused us to become so initially divided.
But you apparently, like Obama, thrive on it.

I have no problem with terror plots being intercepted that might kill another 3000 - or more - people the next time.
Why on God's green earth would you???
It's the one thing Obama and the Democrats got right. Extending the Patriot Act.
Do you understand why due process is important and without it there is NOTHING that you can do when even an.american is arbitrarely determined an enemy combatant?

You'd have to ask Obama that question.
The Iraq War has ended.
it ended?

A bombing at a coffee shop in Baghdad has killed at least 27 people, police and medical officials say. The blast is the latest manifestation of a spike in violence ahead of Iraqi elections.

The blast, which was also said to have injured more than 50 people, occurred at 10 p.m. local time in a mostly Sunni Amriyah neighborhood of western Baghdad. Police said the bomber set off his explosive belt inside the packed café.

Officials said at least three children were among the dead. While there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, al Qaeda militants are among the suspects after stepping up their campaign of violence in an apparent bid to stoke ethnic tensions between the Sunni and Shiite communities.

Please. Stop. In the same article...
In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was "confident" of achieving "our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda".
Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the "remnants" of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war.
...So, in fact, he DID lead America into a sense of false confidence.
And you are connecting the dots of al-Qaeda to two Russian bombers?
Wack-O.

Hon, you need a reality check if you think the CIA is credible.

Like the time they reported ousted Haitian President Aristide was mentally unbalanced. It was their way of supporting the military coup which overthrew him.

Clinton eventually found out the report was hogwash and Aristide was placed back in power.

The CIA lied us into Vietnam. They overthrew the democratic regime of Iran in 1953 and installed a dictatorship. That blew up in our faces 26 years later when the Shah was overthrown. Now they are understandably hostile.

Go read a book. Or better yet, go run outside screaming your head off as your post indicates you want to. I'm sure it won't be the first time.

you mean the group that didn't exist until we started a fake war?

and is FOX is blaming Boston on al-Qaeda? is anyone?

i know it's a big bummer for FOXbots that a couple of brown folks aren't responsible for Boston, but i'm sure FOX will invent some stuff that will make you feel better about not being able to show your bigotry.

You seem to have left out the part about North Korea launching an unprovoked attack across the border.
Compare that with the "justification" for going to war in Iraq which was a pack of lies told by Bush and Cheney.
The Korean War held back communism from the North supported by China from taking over the South.

North Korean leaders and military don't consider their own citizens as human beings. Entire families are imprisoned in the numerous gulags, tortured, starved and executed on a routine basis because one family member escaped to the South or inadvertently disgraced the leader who the North Korean population literally worship as a god.

I'm pretty sure South Korea is grateful for their freedom on our behalf.

If you have 45 minutes, look at the National Geographic's documentary "Inside North Korea".

You will see things differently. I guarantee it.

It's averaging over one hundred per week and most of it is sectarian with Shiite's dying at a much higher rate than Sunni's.

God Bless Boston-and the HUMANITY they showed, towards actions so undeserving of any.

If "it" hurts or harms anyone else whatsoever, whatever "it" may be, in any way shape form or fashion-- and arises of nothing but benevolence and maliciousness-then "it" is NOT "Right".

Pretty simple.

Terror is terror...Jack-O. Obama used to have a hard time even saying the word and actually didn't for a long time.

But saying the war on terror is virtually over in his State of the Union address was not only premature but false.

Its a yes or no question
If you ask South Koreans or Jews if the killing of innocents in the Korean War and WWII was worth it, the answer would be yes.

If you're asking me if the acceleration of the drone program by this administration has created an even deeper and stronger animosity towards the United States, the answer would be yes.
