I'm sure you preferred the Bush/Repub outcome to what we're seeing now. How's that Iraqi vote going? I'm sure you're proud of result of billions in borrowed funds to nation build in Iraq.

And bailing out Goldman Sachs.....with no requirement to pay back the funds....was another great repub move you're proud of.

Tell us more about the great Bush/Repub outcome.

$30 millions worth of Stinger surface-to-air missiles
would be of more use to the rebels.

You mean a tax rate that is lower than Reagan rates?

You sheep are clueless to facts.

This is why you sheep believed all the "Romney will win based on polls" propaganda from FauxNews.

LOL.

You'd prefer the middle class gets taxes raised, instead of asking Romney to pay a rate that is closer to what YOU PAY.

Baaaa Sheep. Good Sheep

...I think we do both if we know who to give the stinger missiles to.

We once gave the same to Bin Laden and al-queda when they were "freedom fighters" fighting the Russians.

When it comes to the Middle East, we always have to assume that weapons we give to "friends" always means we are allowing our weapons to get into the hands of those who could use them against our interests in the region.

The masses would be naive to think otherwise.

Agreed, responder.

Hezbollah have no interest in attacking American terroritory. Thank God the American right way have just been left out in the cold again (my condolences, Mitt) if people with views like yours exist.

Here's how the situation really goes:

Syrian Opposition Guy 1: Hey' I've just got given $30mill. by the Americans.

Syrian Opposition Guy 2: Cool. Let's help the needy and starved in Syria with it.

Syrian Opposition Guy 1: Yeah, okay but not the whole $30m. We'll use $25m to buy some more weapons. Once we take over from Assad we can give the needy and starved more than they could have ever dreamt of.

Syrian Opposition Guy 2: Cool. And besides, they will understand. The sooner we get Assad out the better. We have our sacrifice and this is theirs.

Syrian Opposition Guy 1: Agreed. Right. Where did you put those other weapons now?

Syrian Opposition Guy 2: They've gone straight out to the rebels.

Syrian Opposition Guy 1: What you mean those al-Qaeda Islamist terrorist boys?

Syrian Opposition Guy 2: Yep. They just filmed another beheading video for us last night.

USA YOU ARE SUPPORTING SICK MINDED TERRORIST FILTH. PLEASE WAKE UP NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

Fear much? You scared?

For argument purposes, what would cause that type of attack? Could not be the foreign policy we have had in place for over 20 years could it?

You are as qualified to be secretary of state as Rice is. Not at all. Do you know how many that they have cought coming across the mexican border that were from the middle east? Only one or two need to transport a dirty bomb. You have the same mentality as they did in the days of Pearl Harbor.

Wonder how many generators $30 mil could have bought for our citizens in NY and NJ. Or how much more research for cancer or AIDS $30 mil would have bought? Oh well, lets buy a revolution.
