Maybe if you keep screaming Libya, you will find someone else in the world who thinks the US was at war with Libya.

Of course, this person would have to be as stupid as you, or more stupid if he read any of your posts, since everyone here in Topix knows you are a pathological liar.

No one had been able to prove me wrong on anything. Can you care to try?

I had proven you wrong several times!!!

Let me tell you my tactic in here. I research explosive incredible facts. I expose them in here and wait for a bite. I call it "fishing". Claim an incredible fact and hope a Liberal complains and claim I am lying!!!! Liberal never fail me.

Then when someone claim I am lying then I expose the evidence, embarrass the Liberal and enjoy seeing the poor guy running as roaches under light!!!

You had run for cover before so you know how it feels!!!

Liberals hate gays. I have evidence.

Conservatives believe that being gay is their own personal business so feel free to be gay BUT.... Keep your hand away from our kids and boy scouts and girls scouts.

Conservative respect individuality and personal freedom, just do not CHANGE the definition of marriage.

Liberals can not careless about gays. They utilize gays as a victimization tool to push their big government socially agenda.

Who signed a law punishing gays for being gay? Hint: CLINTON!!!

The Anti-Gay Marriage Act.

Notice how quick Liberals pretend to say that Republucans hate gays when they are the ones who hate them!!

Notice how Liberal black Christians reject gays but vote for a gay president!!

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites!!!

This is what Clinton said recently regarding DOMA, a republican bill passed by a republican Congress in 1996;

"In an op-ed published Thursday evening in the Washington Post, former president Bill Clinton announced his opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act, which he signed into law in 1996. Clinton defended his initial support of the bill, saying that, when it was passed, there were no states that recognized same-sex marriage. At the time, Clinton said the bill seemed like the best option to prevent a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage"

CONservatives NEVER evolve with the times - you idiots feel everything needs to be based on religious pretext's, when this is in fact a SECULAR nation - founded upon secular principles.

You're not only deflecting from the original question, but you're rambling to boot.

I'll Ask the same Question........

Where in the world and you can count Egypt with Mubarik, or Afghanistan with Karzi, or even Pakistan among tyrant governments with the support of America, initiated by George Bush; has an dictator and, or regime existed who did not at some point have the unmitigated support of America to maintain his/her or their position?

Each of those alliances were formulated by Republican Presidents, Reagan forged the alliance with Egypt after the Assassination of Anwar El Sadat in 1981, by Marburik.

You are absent a lot of critical information on Republicans over the last 35 years. You've been dubbed to believe things that are purely a fantasy and distributed in GOP Circles.....

America has never been in the deposing dictators and dethroning tyrants from power business.

If there's no natural resources available for exploiting and developing, America isn't there. We're only in the freeing people business when there is a profit for industrialist available.

Or, Old Fashion Greed

Sorry, you are way misguided, any Attack on Israel is not an attack on America, never was and never will be considered such. It was no America that settled the JEWS on those lands, it was an WW II Allied Forces decision to support England's effort to take lands for the surrounding Arab countries for Jewish Refugees, this was done simply because the Jews were not wanted in refugee numbers any other place in the world to include America.

You are way off in your assumptions. The member nations of the Allied Forces from WW II supported Israels mythical claim about a holy land so long as that freed those nations from having to host the Jewish Refugee.....

Like Libya, America isn't fighting in Libya. Libya is under siege simply because there exist no law and order following their internal civil war.

The Attack on the Consulate wasn't a declaration of war by Lybia on America, but done by a band of criminal intend on wrestling control of Eastern Lybia from the Government for it's own purposes.

That's not no different than how the Confederates tried to section off the South in America even after the South surrender, many southerners refuses to abide by the laws of Congress and the U.S Constitution for more than 100 years.

Gadiffi has not been dead 6 Months it's going to take a while before restoring law and order to all Libya.

You should re-research the tibits on Libya to gain some credible understanding of what's happening there.

As your post suggest, you aren't lying you just don't have a understanding of what's going on in Libya.

The Government, run by Gadiffi at one time has crumbled in Libya, it's a virtual free for all with no police or military in vast areas of the country.

In some areas, gangs of criminals armed from dethroning Gadiffi are fighting for control of those areas, until Libya can dispatch personnel to bring those areas back under the control of the Libya Government and restore order.

Liberals still believe, after all faces to the contrary, that the Muslim Brotherhood is only a bunch of brain dead hypocrites Liberals like them!!!

Nope! Wrong again!!!

Muslim Brotherhood are a bunch of Shariah Law terrorists!

http://www.thenation.com/article/173323/musli... #

I spoke to Shukrallah in February, just after I returned to the United States from an extended visit to Cairo. Over the course of several weeks in the city, I saw the conflict between the Brotherhood and its urban-based opposition turn violent, first in December, with a massive street clash near the Presidential Palace that began when Brotherhood supporters bused in from the countryside assaulted young protesters encamped outside the palace, which ended with hundreds injured and a handful dead. Following a wave of attacks days later on Brotherhood offices around the country, a group of Salafists held a sit-in outside Media City, an area outside Cairo that is home to many of Egypt’s private broadcasting outlets. There, the Islamists called for the “purification” of the media, accusing the networks of inciting violence against Morsi and attacking journalists in retaliation.

According to Shukrallah, the events at Media City reflected the determination of the Brotherhood and its allies to exert at least as much control over private media as over state-run institutions like Al Ahram. The criminal investigation launched in January against Bassem Youssef, a comedian known as the Egyptian Jon Stewart, who has grown famous for his satirical portrayals of Islamists including Morsi, is another example Shukrallah cited as evidence of the government’s authoritarian impulses. This month, Youssef was accused of defaming Morsi in a new lawsuit filed by Brotherhood supporters who claimed they were “psychologically affected by this nonsense, ridicule and slander addressed to the head of state.”

How bad are things in California? California's domestic migration has been negative every year since at least 1990. In fact, since 1990, according to the U.S. Census, 3,642,490 people, net, have left California. If they were in one city, it would be the third largest city in America, with a population 800,000 more than Chicago and within 200,000 of Los Angeles’ population.

http://www.newgeography.com/content/001925-if...

You are confusing NATURAL birth rate of 38 millions with the number of people leaving because of your Liberal failed policies and high taxes!

California birth rate: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/data/statistics/Docume...

You want us to believe that people live up pay high taxes to politicians and move to California so they can pay huge taxes.

Your thinking is NOT based in reality!

You are wrong: people do NOT like to pay taxes, so you are wrong.

People want to KEEP their hard earned money, therefore you are wrong!

People do not like to be told what to do, and what amount to drink. Only Liberal idiots like you who have no brains like to be told how to live!

Since you like to be told how to live, pretend that I am the governments and let me tell you: BE A CONSERVATIVE!!!

I stand corrected, it was 3,000 people leaving California due to your Liberal failed policies, not 2,000 not 1,200, sorry!

Pollster Pat Goodall says 3,000 people leave California every week: mostly because of taxes and fees.

In New York, the situation is similar.

Some economists say high income New Yorkers are leaving the state faster than those fleeing California. At least in California, one has the Pacific Ocean…..

Randy York said he moved his polyurethane manufacturing business from Huntington Beach to Reno, Nev. in 1987 because he was tired of being “hammered” with regulatory fees from the fire department, the health department, the state Environmental Protection Agency, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health and the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

He said it got to the point where he was paying $2,000 or $3,000 a quarter on fees – for company of 20 employees.

“They were killing us with fees,” he said.“Fees, fees, fees.”

Marco was never removed because of anything Americas did, in the fashion that Gadiffi was taken from power by his People,so did Marco. How old are you? Marco was supported by America up until America flew him to France to live in exile.

Marco and Noriega were put on the throne by America to begin with and reigned with America's financial support for decades, each of them. Panama was strategic in that we had a couple huge military bases before those leases expired and needed unmitigated access to the Panama Canal.

Noriega was arrested for drug trafficking and aligning himself and his government with cartels from Columbia.

In either situation, it hasn't been 35 year so how could you get those detail so backwards without purposely trying to mislead on those detail?

America's only interest in seeing Saddam removed from power is the massive Oil reserves under Iraq. so they got involved and sent in troops twice!!!

America supplied Saddam with the few chemical weapons he used against the kurds, those were left over after the Iran/Iraq War.
