The rest of the word thinks what it has always thought, they love us when we are bailing their butts out of sure defeat from fascists or communists. If we are protecting our own self interest we are hated. It has always been the same. Personally I don't know what the rest of the world thinks has to do w/ the security of our country.
To say that we have no right to spread freedom is like saying we have no right to help another country grow more food. You think we should be tolerant of other countries right to slavery. As if the people of that country prefer to live that way. I guess as long as you are free then the rest of the world can live under oppressive rule, as long as they do it over there and not too close to you.
I assume that in your mind the Taliban is in great shape. Sitting in their caves being thankful that we got sidetracked in Iraq. Probably out playing golf trying to decide what to have for dinner at the country club. What makes you think that Bin Ladin is still alive? Perhaps you have spoken to him, many of your points sound just like his.
You obviously to not believe in good guys and bad guys. They only have a difference in opinion. Everything is of moral equivalence to you. Am I wrong?
If our country does not stand up for it self, what country would do it for us? If our country does not stand in the way of world fascism, then what country would? China? Maybe France? I know, Venezuela? Better yet maybe we should sit back for a while and let Canada do the heavy lifting. After all, with their socialized medicine, they should be in great physical shape. Perhaps the EU can do it? Oh, that's right, we are deploying a missile defense system in order to protect them.
Like it or not, pal, we are it. If we do not keep our head in the game, we will get taken out by some other country that wants what we have. There is a reason we have not had war on our soil, and I for one hope we never loose sight of that.
I am truly sorry that you and others like you are so bitter and full of contempt for the country that gives you the right and freedom to do what you are doing right now. It's like the dog that bites the hand that feeds him.
You people are as bad as liberals. You're mind is made up and you will believe any BS to justify your crap. If Bush cares so much for freedom then why did he stand by and allow the killing in Darfur?
When is turning our backs on genocide promoting freedom and democracy?
Someone mentioned us being attacked by Muslims in the middle east so Iraq fits the bill? Complete Ignorance?
Not all Muslims are terrorists - simple fact. Most people in this country are Christians, should we take the blame for some fanatics that blow up an abortion clinic?
So here it is..... Bush is a loser. McCain, unfortunately, has to take some of that heat. And McCain has an ******* for an advisor and a bigger one for a running mate.
Can you people honestly say you want Sarah Palin as president if McCain doesn't finish his term? Obama is about 100 times smarter that her.
Those are the facts. I hope McCain wins, but he just has no chance!
I'd give 100 to 1 odds.
One last fact. We really don't support the NRA, Insurance companies do. If it wasn't for car insurance and roadkill we would have lost our guns a long time ago. But thats a good thing they are a strong lobby.
