Nah it doesn't work, ecspecially when the person you stick a gun in the face of is a lunatic, fundamenilist islamist extremist who will kill you if he gets a chance.
Lets stop meddling over there and bring everybody home. Its gotta stop SOMEWHERE- and the consequences of continuing this horrible foreign policy will be much worse than if we pulled our troops out and stopped funneling money secretly to fund these people.
That's when you pull the trigger and have instantaneous peace.

We have been Stumbling and Fumbling over there for 8 years and have accomplished nothing except a good breakfast for a bunch of losers.
Losers.....that is what our troops are because we have not WON anything.
We will return from the region in a cloud of lies and excuses
I figure another 5 years before you idiots figure out it is a LOSE LOSE situation and face the truth of your folly.
Go kill yourself. Now.

Darren M,

And if the person you kill really wasn't a terrorist, does that matter?

Do we just blow em all up?

Sounds cool- and tough- but you have one little problem. First, that is wrong. Second, those people have the thing called FAMILY.

America's foreign policy is real f**ked up, we shouldn't be meddling in the affairs of other people, pull our troops home, END our interventionist foreign policy.

We have families too, or have you forgotten? Maybe you haven't forgotten, and you're just a pussy. I don't know. If they hadn't let terrorists train in their country, we wouldn't have invaded it. We never should have gone into Iraq though, and I'll give you that one.

Yes, we simply gas the mountains and let the rest of the world whine for a week or two. Or, we pull out with the promise to use a tactical nuke on the next training camp we identify by satellite.

Darren M,

I aint no pussy.

Perhaps you have forgotten the CIA trained and funded thousands of Islamic extremists and drug traffickers and thugs and also supported the Taliban?

Perhaps you forgot the Taliban offered up Bin Ladin?

What we shouldn't be doing is supporting corrupt dictators or supporting people who overthrow perfectly legitimate governments, we shouldn't be invading and bombing and killing people, we should bring our troops home. The idea that we can boss everybody around and tell the world what to do and listen to nobody is what CAUSED all those terrorist attacks.

Not unless they change the way they do business now, which means "no". They (including the prez) will still get the benefits they get now, probably plus some.

And you're so off-topic you probably don't even remember what the thread is about.

Pull the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan and use nukes if they screw it up again.

Goodness.

Doesn't really seem fair for our president and legislators to get better healthcare benefits than the rest of us.

Yes we can, and we've done it in the past. So we don't use them because it would invite disaster to the U.S. in the future? Do you mean Al Qaeda, Iran, and if they had a competent delivery system, North Korea wouldn't use one on us if they had one? North Korea, not so much...You don't think Iran wouldn't love to drop one in NYC? Al Qaeda in D.C.? Anywhere for that matter. They tried chlorine bombs on us in Iraq, tried to develop nerve agents but couldn't get any farther than killing themselves, and you think they'd leave us alone if we left them alone? Weren't we doing that back in August of 2001?

They'll leave us alone if we mind our own business? They invited us into their business via FOUR hijacked airliners.

Go bury your head in the sand. Pussy.

I am busy with these inept Taliban insurgents. We detained an insurgent while he was trying to plant an IED. Guess what...? He pissed his pants. We were laughing our azzes off. This was the first one we caught in a while. For some reason, they tend to blow themselves up while emplacing IED's, or, getting nailed to the concrete by our Excaliber rounds, or, our Kiowas use them for target practice. The insurgents tend to turn into pink mists around here. LMAO. Sucks to be them.

By the way, I am about to eat another fine meal from the KBR cooks. I think tonight is steak and lobster night.

See 'ya, loser.

Buwahahahahhahaha

PORK RULES!!!!
