None of those country's military were involved, why would they pay when the attacks weren't endorsed by or on the behalf of their government?<quoted text>
It was no different than attacking wrong ships in WWII by British and Ameican forces. It happens, they thought it was Egyptian, Israel has paid millions to the families as reparations.
We haven't recieved a penny from those bastards that bombed the US Embassy in Narobi, the Air Force Barracks in Saudi, the Marine Barracks in Beruit, the Cole or 9/11. NOT one fkn dime.
We see where the dems continue to pander to them. They're building back up again..........after W killed and captured much of their base. Pathetic.
Killed much of thier base?
Didn't Bush say that before?:
"Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed." -- George Bush -- speaking underneath a "Mission Accomplished" banner aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, May 1, 2003
Or was it Dick?:
"I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." --Vice President Dick Cheney, on the Iraq insurgency, June 20, 2005
He was doing some "pandering" too:
"My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." Vice President Dick Cheney, "Meet the Press," March 16, 2003
And you don't want to piss off the boss:
News Corp.'s second-largest shareholder, after the Murdoch family, is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
The nephew of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, and one of the world's richest men.
Through his Kingdom Holding Co., Alwaleed owns about 7% of News Corp., or about $3 billion of the media giant.
Earlier this year, News Corp. invested $70 million for a 9% stake in Alwaleed's Middle Eastern media and entertainment company, Rotana, which "owns the Arab world's largest record label and about 40% of the region's movies -- most of which are Egyptian -- and operates 11 free-to-air television channels, two of which are through a partnership with News Corp.," according to Reuters.(Rotana broadcasts Fox movies and TV shows throughout the Middle East.) News Corp. has an option to double its stake in Rotana for another $70 million within 18 months.
