please don't forget that the warlike posturing and insipid drum beating of the u.s. is what has led to all the terrorism that we've experienced.

How would planes be flying into building if we didn't attack Iraq? How was a war of choice and agression against Iraq "protecting ourselves"? What is American about the Iraq war

Interesting story. I spent my entire day interviewing applicants for a job opening I advertised. I had half a dozen interviewed by noon today all were college grads and 2 had MBA's. When I asked them questions about their families and future plans the majority didn't have confidence with the direction of the country and 3 of them had been laid off former jobs and 1 of the 3 had lost his home because he couldn't find a new job.
3 of the six I interviewed were former successful business owners who had employees and had been in business for over 10 years and because of new licensing and insurance requirements and the increased cost (overhead) of operating business they decided to close the doors on their business and seek employment elsewhere.
These people I interviewed drove anywhere from 20 to 150 miles to apply for this job opening.
They are all concerned over the direction of America. Everyone of them mentioned the disconnect between the American People and our politicians in Washington D.C. they feel betrayed, they worked hard paid alot of taxes along the way and now they are practically begging for a job. 4 of the applicants told me they had sent out numerous resumes and my company was the only one to call them in for a interview.
Not one said they were happy with Obama not one said they were going to support him in the coming election. They all said they were active voters and they and their spouses would vote without fail.
What does all of that mean? Well I would surmise from the sampling of the people I spoke with today it's not looking too good for Obama.
Justaminute is this MistyGirls post you keep going on about? It is posted on page 1255 post #25696 and she was posting to Dusty on Aug 13, 2012.

Sounds like her interviews were to get a feeling to where the people she was interview was coming from and wanted for themselves in the future.

I'd prefer it if you stuck with intelligent conversation.

You ignorant lying liberal bastard, Islamic terrorism is a form of religious terrorism committed by extremists of Islam mostly for the religious beliefs and sometimes on achieving varying political ends again in the name of religion. Islamic terrorism has been identified as taking place in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and United States since the 1970s. Iraq never came into play until the 1990s you mental midget! Islamic terrorist organizations have been known to engage in tactics including suicide attacks, hijackings, kidnapping and is now recruiting new members through the Internet.

Some scholars, such as Mark Burgess of the Center for Defense Information, trace the roots of Islamic terrorism back to the 11th-century Assassins, an order of Isma'ili Shi'ism that targeted political and religious opponents who stood in the way of the Assassins' sectarian ideology. In positing a continuity between Islamic terrorism's medieval and modern manifestations, Burgess identifies a common underlying motive, namely loyalty to a divine imperative, and similar tactics, such as actively seeking out martyrdom.

The emergence of modern Islamic terrorism has its roots in the 19th century. The Wahhabi movement, an Arabian fundamentalist movement that formed in the 18th century, began to establish a broad following during the 1800s and gradually inspired other fundamentalist movements during the 20th century. Waves of politically motivated terrorist movements in Europe during the 1800s (e.g. the Narodnaya Volya, the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation) and early 1900s (e.g. the IRA, the Irgun) served as inspirations and models which would inspire the Islamists over the course of the 20th century and beyond.

During the Cold War, the United States and the United Kingdom supported the rise of fundamentalist groups in the Middle East and South Asia as a hedge against Soviet expansion and as a means to weaken anti-Western nationalist movements in some countries. According to Burgess, the escalation of terrorism during the later 20th century has its roots in three pivotal events circa 1979: the Iranian Revolution, the post-Cold War global religious revival, and the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan.

These events, Burgess goes on to argue, were factors that fueled a recourse to religious terrorism. American historian Walter Laqueur described the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan as the "global trigger" of Islamic terrorism.

The usage of ain't drives me crazy. Another thing that drives me nuts when you hear people tell something that has to do with them and someone else and they go 'me and Boy Wonder' saw the man run off (this is example). I was taught to say Boy Wonder and I saw the man run off. You would be surprise who and how many put themselves first. Now I say the correct way is Boy Wonder and I. What do you or anyone else say?
