Maybe you can answer my question, is it really dumb to hold countries accountable for their actions?


It's impossible to do so. That's the thing. Everyone up in arms about nothing.

Yep. The Congressional response to Obama's entire Presidency in one obvious and shameful episode.

These guys are the worst. From celebrating their "victory" over Obama, to blaming him when he tried to stop them from being idiots and now they have "buyer's remorse" is just beneath the bottom of the barrel.



yup.

Thanks for saying it.

It is an election year. Anything that shows support for 9/11 will look good to their voters. That is why it was 97-1 in the senate and 348-77 in the House. They will get praise by the voters then after the elections they will change the bill. Whatever it takes to get the sheeple to vote them in.


Exactly. Today, emotionalism wins over pragmatism every time. That's why Obama is so unpopular with so many. Instead of rushing to an emotional decision, or producing a tweet storm all night, he's thoughtful about every angle of a situation and weighs the consequences... then finds a balance between emotion and practicality that makes sense. .


Exactly why I voted for Obama. He's a methodical thinker.

What's wrong with me?

Also,doesn't TPP (that obama says that we can't live without) give other nations the ability to sue U.S. entities?

Why wouldn't he want us to be able to sue other countries?

BECAUSE IT MAKES TROUBLE. I would ask "what is wrong with you people?" but I know what it is.
Lack of education and foresight.

Republicans blame democrats. Democrats blame republicans.

No, you didn't hit a nerve. You're no different than the gezillion other people who like to call liberals names.
Sore Loser is what all of Congress are. And you, too. Get over your ignorance, and come back and talk like a grown-up.

Do you really think it is a good idea to let the public's judgement determine if a country is actionable? The public has notoriously bad judgement and letting the public get involved in international affairs will only lead to disaster.



The courts will be getting involved, and if the courts aren't good enough then we should let everyone out of prison.

Well one thing this issue proved to me. That the Republican members of Congress only care about taking the opposite position of Obama and could care less about any actual policy. Which makes the Democrats who signed off on this bill be DOUBLY dumb because they didn't think through the Republicans' motivations before trying to get their names on a bill with bi-partisan support.

Which courts? Our courts or the other country's courts? Which matter more? Whose courts should the other country listen to?

I've seen this going on for years now....since he got elected. And it continued when he got elected again.
And I'm PROUD to say I voted for him BOTH TIMES.

Not really. Educated people blame ignorant people. That's what it is.

Dude, chill. Get a grip. I have NEVER defended the 9/11 murderers. Oh, and...

What about suing America for its roll?



I have TOTALLY supported holding Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld accountable for their role in 9/11 and the following wars.

Really? Didn't know a whole country pulled off 911.

The political world is evolving globally as it should.

This would mean so much more if you hadn't felt compelled to resort to attacking intellect as the foundation of your comment. All you've really done is perpetuate the meme that liberals default to ad hom attacks during debate.

I'll stick by what I said, thanks.
