I see the same twisted transparent jerks like Flake and Sleazy Eed are still spewing their ignorance on a daily basis. Must be terrible, having and living your make believe existence on topix every day? Hi to my millions of fans and my ten twisted Tea Baggers on here.

President Bush
January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.
July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.
December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.(I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.
January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.
March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.
July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.
There have been seven embassy attacks since January 2009 with 3 1/2 more years to go. Care to try again? Plus other non embassy attacks around the world.

Damn right I collect my Social Security benefit. I have paid in for more than 50 years, still do. Damn right I use Medicare, again I have paid in for umpteen years. I also purchase supplemental health insurance. If Social Security and Medicare were unavailable to me my life style would change not a bit.
You are right Social Security and Medicare are socialist programs, programs that one must pay into, your kind of program, a benevolent government looking after you. In your case it is a good thing, you need all the help you can get.
One more time you prove your self to be a liar. I do not piss and moan about benefits going to HARD working folks who require additional help, I piss and moan about the LAZY who do not work and expect to be taken care of.
"nutsucker" I will respond to your bullshit however I please, if another poster points out your idiocy I may agree with him. I hope you continue to post, I enjoy reading posts from others the laugh at you. You know what I seldom see? A poster who agrees with you.
Peace

I see you are still residing in that plastic bubble, Moron. You have to be one of the dumbest poster ever, while without doubt a total phony...Thanks for being a clueless rightie nutcase.

Considering the crux of these attacks were immediately following 9/11 and in the middle of a war, you'd have to be a complete and total fool to think this was unusual.

You'd also have to be a total and complete fool to think the world abroad has been a safe place for Americans since 2009.

Did you conviently forget another terrorist attack that was thwarted under Obama's watch only because of quick-thinking passengers on an airplane?

Or the attempted terrorist attack in Times Square recently where the bombs just didn't go off? Thank God.

Or the most recent terrorist attack in Boston?

How many attempted or successful terror attacks on our soil happened in the entire eight years of the Bush administration following 9/11 that his administration did not disrupt before they happened?

So as long as you're keeping score: Bush wins.

He's absolutely right. Most people were wrong about the necessity of the Korean War in the immediate aftermath.
South Koreans and history judge it very differently today.
President Truman (D) was sinking in the polls then too.
President Harry S. Truman is well regarded by historians.
His removal of Mac Arthur prevented war with China so Nixon could open relations
