<quoted text>being the good Christian you are, i'm surprised you gave bush the credit for the middle east - it goes back at least to moses and the jews and the Christians became an issue at the birth of Christ - this ain't about oil or anything near it - if all the Christians and jews leave, there will be peace in the valley - as they have refused to do so for the past 4000 years, I doubt they will pack and move away anytime soon - hence, the war continues - this is, always has been and always will be a religious war -no more, no less
Tiger High,
You've missed my point here. What I was trying to stress was that until Bush Sr. started the Gulf war - America was not among the middle east's biggest enemies.

The United States & other countries have wasted billions & billions of dollars & sacarificed millions & millions of lives (Americans as well as our allies)- and what have we gained - NOTHING - the situation has only gotten much worsel

Now, Americans are at the top of THE TERRORISTS list of people they'd most like to kill!

America would do well to get completely out of the middle-east & let those people all kill each other off!!!

These people are of a completely different culture & no matter how hard we try - we are not going to sell DEMOCRACY to most of them...

Walrus & others on this forum are right - these mid-east wars have been going on from the beginning of time - BEGINNING WITH CAIN & ABLE...

you seem to have forgot these.......
2000 USS Cole= by Al qada
First world trade center attack=Al qada (Spelling)
Somali incident
1995 five Americans were killed and thirty wounded in a car bomb in Saudi Arabia by Muslim extremist
1996 air force housing complex in Saudi Arabia was bombed by Muslim extremist
1997 Iraq refused to allow UN weapons inspectors to do their jobs and threaten to shoot down a UT Spy plane.
1998 The U.S embassies in kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim extremist
Source(s):there are lots of others these are just highlights!!
Clinton responded by doing nothing when all this happened...
I think I did mention that there were several attempted & minor attacks under Clinton - but none as major as 9/11.

What you have had Clinton do - start another war like Bush Jr did??? Tell me - just what did this war accomplish???

Since this debate has strayed its course like all debates about politics or religion will, I see the usual names as always. Its a known fact that the Republican party is a minority now. They have no one to blame but themselves, but as always look to blame the opposition. After Obama won last year the GOP held a Governors convention and even Haley Barbour stated the party has a problem of what they have become. I think the Republican party got the "SLAP"of a life time when Romney got his hat handed to him and was shown the door by the American people who voted for Obama over Romney. But how long did that last with the Republicans trying to change their image that's been credibility damaged by themselves?
About a few months..then back to hate train they go!
So Republicans in here can post daily like one stated he would just out of hatred and spite of Obama, or some can bring up valuable and agreeable points of politics. But the one has only but one goal as to post. Hate.
and like someone said before in here, hate never wins.
As long as Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, FOX & the rest of the right-wing propaganda machine keep spewing out their hate, fear-mongering & division - the hate mongers on this forum will keep at it.

They have attacked me & called me every ugly, vulgar, vile, demeaning name in the book - JUST BECAUSE I CHALLENGE THEIR RACISM, HATE, LIES, FEAR-MONGERING & MANUFACTURED SCANDALS...

You know rational sane people don't behave this way. Very very seldom will you ever see or hear a Democrat stooping to this level...

And how many of these, including 9/11, would have been avoided if Clinton killed Bin Laden when he had his head handed to him on a silver platter?

I used to baby-sit my little brother in the summertime while Moma & daddy were working. Moma & Daddy had always given us strict orders not to ever have any kids at our house when they were not at home. I was 8 yrs older than my little brother.

So, if I run you off - I was just doing what I was told.
Sorry you didn't come to my 14th birthday party in 1957. Since this was the year of the 100 yr centennial celebration - several of us were dressed in long dresses (like girls/women wore back then). Both my older brothers grew beards. I've got a picture of my oldest brother with a beard at this party. He showed up to help Moma chafferone.

This wasn't just a bunch of goofy girls - there were probably almost as many boys there as girls. I've got photos of several kids in our neighborhood who later - died at an early age - Glenda Vincent, Larry Holcomb & Kay Thrasher. All three of them were at this party. I think we invited every kid in the neighborhood.

It was a really good party. My daddy had died just 9 months before. I think Moma wanted to bring a little joy & fun into our family again. That was a very very hard year for us...

Well, Tiger - I don't know if you're talking about golfing, gambling or playing the lottery, But whatever you're entering - I wish you the best of luck.

You'll have to spell it out a little clearer so I can understand what you're talking about. Yes, do let me know if it will be televised. Maybe then (if I see you) I'll remember who you are...

Yes Walrus,
The whole world would been much better off if Clinton had taken Bin Laden out. This country wouldn't be bankrupt & millions & millions of people would still be alive...

What is it they say about hindsight being 20-20...

Well, I'll be happy to talk more about the economy & the middle east. But, I'm not finished talking about FDR & Hoover yet!

A lot of what I've got to say is very revelant to what Republicans are claiming today. So, stay tuned for a good lecture about FDR & Hoover.

But, for now & maybe tomorrow - I'm signing off Topix & retiring to the couch to watch country music on the RFD network & tomorrow, I'll be going to church...

ZZZ,
You can't be serious! You really have to ask which ones are considered right-wing??? And you also have to ask which ones spew fear mongering & hate???
Over the last few years - I HAVE SPELLED THIS OUT HUNDREDS OF TIMES!!! I really think you're putting me on here.
But, I will, one more time - tell you who these rigt-wing hate & fear mongers are:
Rush Limbaugh
Glen Beck
Sean Hannity
Fox
And hundreds of Republican/Conservatives leaning radio talk shows & thousands of Republican/Conservatives websites!!!
Them we have MSNBC tv. Yes, this is a liberal leaning network. However, their main purpose is to counter ALL THE RIGHT-WING LIES & FEAR MONGERING!!! CNN also leans to the left. There are also a few Liberal leaning radio stations. These left-wing radio talk shows main focus is also to counter all the right-wing lies & fear mongering...
You must remember you spelling it out does not make it fact,just your opinion.I believe you are putting me on now.Im sure you are confused on your choice of words like right-wing lies and fear mongering.What exactly do you consider fear mongering?Just curious of what your idea of that would be.Good day!!

So when a democrat screws up its "well, hindsight is 20/20", but if you can find some way to blame it on a republican you make 10 pages worth of posts about it? Sounds about right for you as usual, hypocrite!

i agree with most of what you posted, but we have been on their hate much longer than either bush - their hatred is spreading even to the most friendly middle east countries - when or if egypt falls, major decisions will have to be made on the safety of isreal - i honestly believe it is going to get ugly all over the world - you will see cell groups all over the world causing havoc, all at one time - read the book of revelation to see how it all comes out!!

ZZZ,
Looks like I'm keeping you wide awake instead of putting you to sleep WITH THE TRUTH! So, what's with the zzz's?

I have no doubt you're trying to get a big laugh at my expense - but it seems your little devious game here is giving me an OPPORTUNITY & EXCUSE to show all Topix readers just A FEW EXAMPLES of right-wing FEAR-MONGERING - here we go...

List of Right-wing Fear mongering:
1. Obama is the Anti-Christ
2. Obama is a Muslim
3. Obama is a Socialist
4. Obama was born in Kenya
5. Obamas made/is making economy worse
6. Obama will take your guns away
7. Obama apologized for America
8. Obama greatly expanded size of government
9. Obama's policies will bankrupt America
10. Taxes under Obama has skyrocketed
11.Under Obama voter registration fraud is a serious problem
12.Obamacare will have death panels for seniors
13.Obamacare will kill Americans
14.Obamacare is a government take-over of healthcare
15.Obamacare will cause patients to have to wait months for treatment & surgry

Now as I said before these are just a FEW of the most blatant lies/fear-mongering right-wingers have spewed out the last few years. I didn't even get into the lies/fear-mongering about Benghazi & the so-called "IRS SCANDAL"...

You are foolish. Show me once where Fox News, Limbaugh, hannity, or beck has ever called Obama a Muslim, the anti Christ, or said he was born in Kenya. He does want to take guns away. How else would you explain him trotting around the country trying to ban assault rifles. People do own those you know. He has apologized for America on numerous occasions. That is fact. More people than ever in history are on government assistance, so is definitely expanding government. That isn't even counting Obamacare which will be a huge expansion of government. It does have death panels. That is fact. Just because he gives it a fancy name doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Democrats are saying publicly that they hope Obamacare leads to a single payer system. Which is a government take over of healthcare. If you don't think it will cause huge waiting lines ten just take a look at any other government healthcare system. Ask their people how it is working out for them. And please. I beg you to tell me Benghazi isn't a scandal. Unless you have been living in a cave, or as I expect is more likely for you, had your head buried in the sand, there is no denying a scandal and cover up on Benghazi.

True, but why did Bush invade a country that never attacked US Soil and instead of going after and killing Bin Laden like the focus of the war was?

Leave to a white man to have a black man do all work, right? Your damn right its right and nothing you can post say or do will change the fact Bin Laden was killed by the order of a black president because two white presidents strayed off course for personal greed.

Ok he killed bin laden So what that is one guy one guy. At least bush had saddam stand trial. Osama wasn't even givin that chance and Clinton made it illegal for us to assassinate world leaders. Which is why saddam went on trial and was found guilty by his peers. Not ours. Osama. Supposedly was killed by seals. None of which are alive to tell it and supposedly tossed in the sea. Funny in 2001 military intelligence showed he was in the final stages of kidney failure and was on dialysis even purchased two of his own. Yet he lives another ten plus years in a area were power outages were the norm and when the seals show up he puts up a fight shooting back. How come people in America with kidney failure and living in dialysis machines life expectancy is only 2 years without a transplant yet this old bastard can live ten years in a cave? I'm not saying he didn't but come on explain how.

because daddy told him to - he should have gone after bin laden - can't argue that point - i do believe weapons of mass destruction was a reason - everyone knows, democrat, republican or other, the primary reason was oil - still can't understand why we don't open our own reserves, keep the money in the US and use it to develop alternative fuels - let the arabs enjoy their oil
