Ok, in Iraq, we invaded them and the people are fighting back, we are calling them terrorists.

The Injuns that scalped innocents and burned homes were terrorists and they paid the price for not wanting to share the land. Y'all can thank the US Cavalry for the good work.

Just a point of fact, it was the french that taught the "Injuns" how to scalp.
Bounties were put on certain tribes and english settlers by the french. The proof for payment was the scalp. The first settlers were accepted and welcomed. "Injuns" taught them to hunt, fish and plant native crops. It is the settlers that kept breaking the treaties and encroaching on "Injun" land. The US practiced government sanctioned genocide, wiping out entire tribes. It is a sad part of American history. What is even worse is this threads lame attempt to take such a tragic event in our history and turn it into a debate on terrorism. Sorry but I do not see the connection nor the justification for such blatant misrepresentation.

as far as what we, the US would do if invaded? well, some, the metrosexuals, the hippies, the softies, would all lay down and wait for the bullet in the back of the head while the slight majority of people would grab the millions of guns available on any street corner or their closet at home and the invader would be in for a world of hurt, a can of whoop-ass. again, though, a different situation, we wouldn't be blowing up our own people to get the job done, we'd be attacking their military.
