When a nation unleashes WMDs on its men, women and children, they no longer have the distinction of sovereignty. They have become a breeding ground of evil. And when that evil threatens the entire civilized world in any way, shape or form, they must be destroyed.
So when do you plan on leaving the 'evil' United States?

"...In August 1949, the Special Operations Division operatives infiltrated the world’s largest office building and sprayed bacteria into the Pentagon’s air handling system, which then spread them throughout the structure.

The operatives moved to larger scale testing, releasing clouds containing supposedly harmless bacteria from Navy ships off Norfolk, Virginia, in April 1950, and the San Francisco coast in September 1950. The San Francisco experiments showed exposure among almost all of the city’s 800,000 residents. Had the bacteria released been anthrax bacteria or some other virulent pathogen, the number of casualties would have been immense...."

Republicans can't work with a president who puts himself, his ideology and his party above all else. It doesn't work that way. Obama should have followed Clinton's example as far as being a president and leading goes. At least he knew that a president has to work with the other side to get things done and move closer to center to represent all the people's interests.
If a Republican president tried to get his way without attempting to compromise or negotiate with the other side like Obama has done, I'd be just as critical. It doesn't work that way on both sides.
Funny. The reich wingers keep insisting on having their way.

Especially the radical, party hijacking, kidnapping tea party.....

The boy president bombing Libya is not a violation of Libya's sovereign rights? How about the drone flights over Syria and Afghanistan?
Awwww... you're so right son.

That would mean the U-2's and SR-71 flights were also 'illegal'

Damn! How many US presidents can you condemn?

BTW son, does space count too?

Good old Mitt:
It was clear to Mitt Romney within 24 hours that the Libyan embassy attack was a terrorist attack. Barrack Obama quickly criticized Romney for shooting first and aiming later and went on for the next two weeks to blame the attack on demonstrations over a 6th grade level production about Islam on YouTube.
Barry's own people died
then he lied
Romney didn't know crap moron. He was shooting his mouth off about a statement put out by the embassy in Cairo condemning the noxious video. He claimed that this statement was sympathizing with the attackers even though it came out prior to any attacks.
Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspect captured by U.S. special forces for his role in the Benghazi attack told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video.
No one in the administration lied; this has been borne out by reports from both House and Senate committees investigating the attack.

The Libya Lies
We were told for two weeks that it was a demonstration when the White House knew within a few hours that it was a terrorist attack.
A live feed was available from a drone that was flying over Benghazi.
Obama’s Failure to Lead
Obama went campaigning after he knew there had been a terrorist attack.
Obama mentioned terrorist attack only once in the rose garden.
Obama didn’t speak until after Mitt Romney.
Criticized Mitt Romney for shooting first and aiming later.
Failure to Protect
3 Requests were made for backup. Those requests were denied.
With a 7 hour battle, help was within reach.
White House refuses to say where Obama was while the attack occurred
My own impeccable sources have revealed he was hiding under his bed.
Pretty much everything you stated has been debunked by both House and Senate committees that investigated the attack.
You're and idiot Harmonious but go ahead keep flogging that dead horse.

How are things going in Libya and Syria? After douchebag in chief Oblamer's "help"?
How's Iraq after Bush's help lug nut? Libya was a NATO operation that the United States was only one part of and was launched to prevent Muammar Gaddafi from slaughtering his own people using foreign mercenaries. What happens in Libya now is up to its people.
The situation in Syria and northern Iraq with ISIS/ISIL can be traced right back to Bush's disastrous decision to overthrow Saddam Hussein. The United States invaded Iraq, accidentally sparked a sectarian civil war, and generally created the conditions for what was then al-Qaeda in Iraq to flourish. Without the American invasion, al-Qaeda in Iraq never would have been so strong, and ISIS never would have grown out of it.

L's see....
ISIS is Al Qaeda
Al Qaeda is just part of the Suni Wahabist Islamist jihad at war with the United States.
Saudi Arabia has the largest concentrations of Wahabist Islamist terrorists in the world.
The Muslim Brotherhood is the primary political part of the Suni Wahabist Islamist jihad.
Obama staffed the White House with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama gave "special traveller" status to every Wahabist Islamist terrorist in Saudi Arabia to enter the United States without scrutiny.
Obama violated the Constitution to rewrite the law governing issuing visas to give Islamist terrorists with "limited contact" (whatever that means) to known terrorist organizations visas to enter the United States.
Obama nullifies the southern border. Enough muslims are coming through Mexico and across the border into the United States so that finding a muslim prayer rug left behind is a daily occurrence.
Obama exempts mosques from his unconstitutional spying on the American population.
One can only conclude Obama brought into the United States thousands of Islamist terrorists at war with the United States, and is executing a plan where the government has no way of identifying and tracking them.
Very obviously, the Islamist jihad is still at war with the United States, and just as obviously they have another plan for a large scale terrorist attack.
When the attack occurs, the government will cut all communication so you cannot exchange information with each other to determine who is doing what and where. The government will tell you "all muslis aren't terrorists" and put their boot on the back of your neck so you can't protect yourself from the muslims who will be trying to take over the country.
The next attack will be bigger than the 9/1/2001 attack. Be prepared. Make sure your local law enforcement knows their only job is to protect you, from whatever the threat is. If the Democrats construct an environment where Americans can't trust local law enforcement on a large scale, that just makes the level we must start the rebuilding process from lower.
What will prevent the next Islamist terrorist attack? Your constant awareness of the facts, and their fear of your response to their attack.
Nothing else will prevent the next Islamit jihad attack on the United States. The federal government is on their side. You can't trust them.
Of course you have some evidence to back up your delusional screed? Of course you don't; you just pulled it out of your anal orifice like everything you post.

David Cameron of the UK says that he is taking action with ISIS and the first thing he's doing is banning their passports! He states that he is taking this threat head on!

Obama says he has no plan on ISIS as of this moment... Ahhhhh uhhhhhh I don't want to ahhh put the cart before the horse ahhhhh right now I don't have a plan ahhhh ahhhhhh

52 Iranians were under protected status by the USA and UN, but were killed a few weeks ago... So we failed on protecting them and we promised that we would!

Russian hackers are hacking into US Banks...

Our national debt is 17.875 trillion and on the rise.

Over 135000 Americans sign a petition for the release of the marine who was taken by Mexican law enforcement because the Mexicans said he crossed into their nation with fire arms... The president said that they are in support of a fair trail.

Now my opinion here... Those god damn Mexicans cross into our nation with guns and drugs and they get welfare, EBT cards, yet our marine is in a prison?You people that support Obama are faucking stupid!!!

Unemployment still 3 to 4 points higher compared to any of the years of our previous president and now 48% of Americans are on government assistance.

All you got to do is look it up, but will you be that smart to do so

Why 2014 Isn’t (and Shouldn’t Be) a Foreign Policy Election

It’s pure hyperbole to say that “the world” is on fire right now. For the vast majority of nations, there is no armed conflict, nor is there an extraordinary degree of disorder or violence. If we keep foreign threats to U.S. interests in perspective, we will find that U.S. interests are mostly not imperiled, and the U.S. itself is as secure as it has been in decades. The current freakout about how dangerous the world has become depends almost entirely on exaggeration of threats by politicians, alarmist coverage by the media, and a failure to appreciate how much less dangerous overall the world is today compared to previous decades.

For that matter, the preoccupation with the foreign conflicts that are happening is almost entirely an elite concern. Those that are most inclined to panic and exaggerate dangers to the U.S. are also most likely to have an absurdly broad definition of U.S. interests in the first place, and the public doesn’t share that view. Election campaigns are ignoring foreign policy because voters don’t perceive these conflicts overseas as problems that their candidates should be focused on, and candidates have no incentive to dwell on issues that voters don’t care about or to advocate for policies that most voters reject. When a candidate does this, as Santorum famously did during his failed re-election bid in 2006, he will often lose. One can like or dislike voters’ priorities, but it makes no sense to expect them or their candidates to pay attention to issues that don’t matter to them. 2014 isn’t a foreign policy election, and there is no reason to think that it should be one.

hawks on the wrong side of it....again. they do like to hear themselves talk.
