$3 Trillion in new debt...at least for US dummys and their phony war.

The USA is a LOSER , its troops are BOZOS

When our President is a liar, that my friend is the crap at the bottom.

People making fun at an idiot, that's stress relief.
We all know who is at fault and we all know where the other shoe fell....

I agree.

Bush caused so much damage..not much argument there.

But it's in the past now. It's time to move on.

Americans will suffer a HUMILIATING DEFEAT in this war as they deserve.

The UGLY FACE of the USA will be slapped again and again in this war.

Our troops deserve zero support or encouragement, they are no better that the Taliban or any other mideastern thugs.

Death, debt and dishonor.....are the 3 swords the USA has stuck in its own rotten heart and represent what it will WIN.

There is racism out there, but that is not the reason people are protesting against President Obama and his socialist policies. Why is it that whenever someone voices an opposing position to the official Whitehouse they are branded racist or hatemongers. I though President Obama was the great uniter, willing to listen to all opinions!
what socialist policies?? healthcare? like "medicare" (Reagan gave a speech about how medicare was just socialized medicine) or SOCIAL security? The VA? Senator Joe Wilson enjoys goverment run healthcare...tri-care.( he his the senator who called the president of the united states a liar)

He would be the great uniter except the republicans don't want to be united they just want everyone to be afraid and to say no to everything and offer not one solution. When the river runs low you can see all the crap on the bottom...the conservative river is low!!!

Sure we do. They are called ICBMs. Let's press the button a few times and quit wasting all this money with ground troops, huh rattledingaling? Hell lets strap a few small ones to a drone and try to contain the fallout, just a little bit.

He died of stupidity. You have to be pretty stupid to throw something at people with loaded fully automatic weapons during a war.

Wonderful news. Let it be a lesson to irresponsible Muslims, thinking it entertaining to insult Americans. By the way, the Muslim shoe-throwing custom is nothing more than childishness, witch seems Arab men are afflicted with.
Actually it is a lesson to the entire world that Americans are so arrogant they'll kill rather than accept responsibility for their own actions.

Shot dead for throwing a shoe at people who invaded his country means there is no point protesting about americans. Becoming a terrorist is the only way you can fight back.

It seems many americans think this murder was justified. Sleep sound in the knowledge that any terrorist reprisals will be even more justified.

Pretty difficult to fight a war on terror when the terrorists have a better moral code than the US army isn't it?

I don't think many of us think it was justified, but we do understand why it was done. A young man with a rifle in a far-away land is afraid of everything. That is especially true given the unconventional manner with which the fighting is being carried out -- unconventional resistance style combat.

I can tell by the bravado with which you callously dismiss the gravity of this situation by simply writing it off as "kill happy" Americans that you have never served in a combat unit; nor do I think you have ever closely known anyone who has done so.

The decision to invade or not invade was not made by the foot soldier on the ground. They are merely instruments that are manipulated by their superiors. They are no more responsible for the invasion than a knife is for stabbing someone.

As far as the enemy having a better moral code than the US Army is concerned, you are woefully mistaken. I have not yet seen an incident where we beheeded someone and posted video. I have not seen us deliberately target civilians. Yes MANY have died, but one could say that of ALL wars.

This man threw something at an armed convoy. He was no doubt speaking in Arabic, gesturing heavily, sweating profusely, and moving with intent. In Vietnam, old ladies on bicycles used to throw greneades into trucks. You think our Marines don't know that?

Although I don't agree with ANY war, they have been fought for far less valid reasons than the one in Iraq. It is unfortunate that someone from the UK should have such a negative opinion of America and Americans as you do. This is especially so given the fact that MANY of us feel that the UK is our only TRUE ally.

That is what we deserve.

The attacks of 9/11/01 were them trying to be as ugly as we already are.

The USA is at the UGLIEST POINT in its entire history.
