I have to disagree. We have a muslim family in our neighborhood. Good folks. Nice kids. The wife and one 13 year old daughter basically are clad from head to toe. Home schooled. They participate in our twice a year get togethers, though I must add they eschew the adult beverages that are available. They keep their place up. They pay their taxes. Seldom see the Mom but see the kids daily, they get along just fine. Why is that you may ask. It's because I live in a great area, we could care less about a persons race or religion.

I think it is important to accept and understand that intelligent people can have differing opinions without sinking into pissing contests.
Note, however, that I said *intelligent* people. While engaging with Liberals, I can spray like a skunk.
The irony is that you talk about intelligent people engaging in a discussion without sinking into a pissing contest and you end it by insulting people with different points of view than your own....

which clearly demonstrates your level of intelligence.

Obama's Syrian war may be a "Wag the Dog" operation to divert attention from the scandals surrounding the White House.
The so-called 'scandals' "surrounding the White House" may have had some downward impact on Obama's favorability numbers, but it seems to be less relevant as the steady improving economy buoys Obama's popularity. "Political coverage over the last week has focused on a series of stories that reflect negatively on the executive branch — but President Obama’s approval ratings have held steady. As of Monday, Mr. Obama’s Gallup approval rating was 49 percent — the same as it was, on average, in April. Mr. Obama’s Rasmussen Reports approval rating was 48 percent, not much changed from an average of 50 percent in April. Mr. Obama’s approval rating in a CNN poll published on Sunday was 53 percent, little different from 51 percent in their April survey. And in a Washington Post-ABC News poll, Mr. Obama’s approval rating was 51 percent, essentially unchanged from 50 percent in April.

There are a lot of theories as to why Mr. Obama’s approval ratings have been unchanged in the wake of these controversies, which some news accounts and many of Mr. Obama’s opponents are describing as scandals. But these analyses may proceed from the wrong premise if they assume that the stories have had no impact. It could be that the controversies are, in fact, putting some downward pressure on Mr. Obama’s approval ratings — but that the losses are offset by improved voter attitudes about the economy."

Tell that to Kuwait.
John, given the size of Kuwait's military force just about anyone could have invaded it.

The outcome of Gulf War I and the number of casualities sustained by the coalition forces proved beyond a doubt that Iraq was not a significant military power.

In 2003, Iraq's military power was significantly less than in 92.

as for Afghanistan in the 80's, we armed, trained and financed the Mujaheddin, which was to become Al Qaeda.

Are you saying that you would prefer the stability offered by murderous tyrants over the temporary instability of working toward a better reality?
Sounds cheap and cowardly to me.
I would prefer that we mind our own business. While you may have not liked Saddam, there were certain advantages to having him in power.

Besides the trillions of dollars wasted in that war, the number of killed U.S. troops (4,500+), the 80K+ wounded, injured and sick troops, the trouble/PTSD our vets are going to deal with for decades...all for nothing

there's the hundreds of thousands of Iraq's killed in the war, the subsequent sectarian violence, the genocide, ethnic cleansing the destruction of Iraq's infrastructure and the expansion of Al Qaeda into Iraq, the growing influence of Iran in the region, Iran restarting its nuclear program...

Dude, there are thousands of tin pot dictators all over the world...some of whom we put in power and support

The government does not;
- Offer you police services
- Action if the dumpster you reside in catches on fire
- Food stamps
- A rent subsidy
Some of us paid for those services and still do. Some like yiu have their hands out. Having your hand out is the one, the only thing you do well.

Lie much? Senator Feinstein never said that. Maybe you should try sticking to the truth.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/feinstein...

uring the Senate Judiciary meeting today to markup a potpourri of bills designed to deny the American people their rights under the Second Amendment and disarm them, Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw.

…this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was effect… and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that you know with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.

"real dumb"
sadamn was not friendly with anyone, except maybe you, you both think alike. Egypt, Pakistan neither are friendly to us, they demean us at every opportunity but we send them stuff. We should not send them a dime but, we do. The death toll in Syria is well past 90,000 they use chemical weapons on their own folks and now the red line has been crossed and president nobama is going to piss away more American dollars in an attempt to get rid of assad? A waste of dollars those folks are going to do what the have been doing for centuries, kill each other, weather assad is around or not.

<quoted text> For most Americans, they agreed with President Obama that the evidence of chemical weapons use by the Assad regime was the game changer on now providing lethal aid to the rebel fighters. "The Obama administration, which had long resisted sending weapons to antigovernment forces in Syria’s civil war, has announced plans to supply the rebel forces with small arms after concluding that the troops of President Bashar al-Assad have used chemical weapons against them.
The shift in administration policy on Syria seems reflective of public opinion. Polls have consistently shown Americans are deeply wary of the United States becoming involved in the fighting in Syria. But they also show that public support for intervention increases sharply under circumstances where it is confirmed that the Assad regime used chemical weapons."

He murdered other Christians that resisted his way of things. He burned parts of the Bible in attempts to only allow people to worship his style of christianity. He himself was a tyrant & history records him as such. His tyranny forced the teachings of the apostle Paul underground because Paul's brand of christianity taught people that God was within them & that was opposed to the message of Constantine!
America's entrance into WWII saved Europe and the world from Nazism.
But America also slaughtered the Indians, broke treaties with them, enslaved blacks, stole private property for the Robber Barons and whole slew of unholy acts against humanity.

So. What do you want to do with this? Join Al Qaeda and massacre millions of innocents who had nothing to do with America's darker past?

Maybe you could just sit in the middle of a mud puddle and cry about America, Christianity and the whole rotten world until your balls swell up like boiled prunes.

Go for it, crybaby.
