Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

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.
Carol, you are a fckn dimwit as always. Chinging your SN doesn't change that.

I never stated or implied in any way the Korean war wasn't worth fighting.

My point was that, contrary to your idiotic analogy, the reason for going to war in Korea was honest and valid compared to Bush and Cheney's lies which wrongly got us into Iraq.

You are such a dip-brained retardican, it makes hippies high on acid seem clear minded and rational.

What? You think Jews would have rather been exterminated and Europe would rather have been under Nazi rule? Or South Koreans would rather be subject to the whims of a madman who thinks he's a god?

Right You were defending Bush's declaration of Bon Laden Being irrelevant & said killing him did nothing. i.e. a waste of time.
First, this shows how dumb you are. The elimination of the Al Qaeda leadership definitely hurt that organization. Secondly, Bin Laden was a fund raiser for the organization.
Taking out the Al Qaeda leadership has been very effective.
But hey, you keep defending your pal & hero George W Bush.
Wake up Duhmazz-bin_laden was only half the leadership.
Zawahari, a living, walking shell of depravity, suffered at the hands of more depravity, was HIS mentor.

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.
I was asking your opinion on the drone strikes without congressional authority of innocent women and children, especially without a declaration of war, do you care about checks and balances?

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.
Just another apologist for this President!! When the White House was asked what kind of cooperation the Russians provided to Boston the WH won't say….It’s a Joke!!

Ah, Carol rubbed her crystal ball and now knows the thoughts of every Israeli and South Korean on the planet.

As for killing innocent people "being worth it", I guess it's okay as long as cheerleaders like you are safe on the sideline.
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.
The right, with its CIA overthrow of democracies around the world, its wars of criminal aggression like Iran-Contra and 2003 Iraq, along with drone strikes, have made us unnecessary enemies.

Do you know how many tragic and unfortunate deaths happen every single day that aren't caused by a bomb exploding in public places and planes flying into buildings?
Do you also know al Qaeda is regrouping in Africa?
It ain't over...no matter how much Obama wants you to believe he single-handedly has saved us all by finding bin Laden which he had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with when it came to the decisions leading up to his discovery five years beforehand.
So americans should give up all of their liberty for security and leave their lives in the hands of incompetent government?

Au Contraire--
terrorism, the threat or use of violence, often against the civilian population, to achieve political or social ends, to intimidate opponents, or to publicize grievances. The term dates from the Reign of Terror(1793–94) in the French Revolution but has taken on additional meaning in the 20th cent. Terrorism involves activities such as assassinations, bombings, random killings, and hijackings. Used for ***political***, not military, purposes, and most typically by groups too weak to mount open assaults, it is a modern tool of the alienated, and its psychological impact on the public has increased because of extensive coverage by the media. Political terrorism also may be part of a government campaign to eliminate the opposition, as under Hitler
Mussolini, Stalin and others, or may be part of a revolutionary effort to overthrow a regime.
Terrorist attacks also are now a common tactic in guerrilla warfare.
Governments find attacks by terrorist groups difficult to prevent; international agreements to tighten borders or return terrorists for trial may offer some deterrence.(freedictionary)
Official United States Government Definition of Terrorism
"[An] act of terrorism, means any activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping."
(United States Code Congressional and Administrative News, 98th Congress, Second Session, 1984, Oct. 19, volume 2; par. 3077, 98 STAT. 2707 [West Publishing Co., 1984])

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.
Not so fast socialist old fk. Here you are saying the "CIA" lied, yet when Bush relied on intelligence info for Iraq you anti-American pansies say "Bush" lied.

You are a duplicitous anti-American old moron.

Democrats got us involved with sending so many troops where 50,000+ kids died, yet a sleazball like you just spins your leftwing propaganda. Eat sheet azzwhole.

Well, it's clear once again to see why we're living in a parallel universe.

Jurisdiction is presumed WHERE an act occured, there is quite a difference between a tribunal and a court.

WASHINGTON — A
nonpartisan,
independent review
of interrogation and
detention programs
in the years after the
Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks
concludes that “it is
indisputable that the
United States
engaged in the
practice of torture”
and that the
nation’s highest
officials bore
ultimate
responsibility for it.
The sweeping, 577-
page report says
that while brutality
has occurred in
every American war,
there never before
had been “the kind
of considered and
detailed discussions
that occurred after
9/11 directly
involving a
president and his
top advisers on the
wisdom, propriety
and legality of
inflicting pain and
torment on some
detainees in our
custody.” The study,
by an 11-member
panel convened by
the Constitution
Project, a legal
research and
advocacy group, is
to be released on
Tuesday morning.
Debate over the
coercive
interrogation
methods used by
the administration
of President George
W. Bush has often
broken down on
largely partisan
lines. The
Constitution
Project’s task force
on detainee
treatment, led by
two former
members of
Congress with
experience in the
executive branch —
a Republican, Asa
Hutchinson, and a
Democrat, James R.
Jones — seeks to
produce a stronger
national consensus
on the torture
question.
While the task force
did not have access
to classified records,
it is the most
ambitious
independent attempt
to date to assess the
detention and
interrogation
programs. A
separate 6,000-
page report on the
Central Intelligence
Agency’s record by
the Senate
Intelligence
Committee, based
exclusively on
agency records,
rather than
interviews, remains
classified.
Those who Don't go around frickin terrorising other countries and the people thereof, won't have to worry it.

Those who DO, and see nothing WRONG with it-need to START thinking elsewise!!!

Good Job BOSTON!

Was a great movie. I recommend it.

Another chapter in the war on terror is closed but the book is long. There will be more. In fact I would hazard a guess that it will accelerate. Nowhere can now be deemed safe. See it, report it.

Bin Laden is why we invaded Afghanistan.

You & your ilk have a fit because those behind Benghazi have yet to be caught while Bin Laden & Zawahari ran free for7 years under Bush.

Hypocrites. You're all a pack of whining hypocrites.
