While performing a miracle would definitly get MY vote, no. Not miracles. Every single person in charge of this war, is an elected offical who can be removed. I assume that most of them like their job and want to keep it. A good way to do that is keeping the public happy. There are a million different indictments brewing now because WE THE PEOPLE aren't content to sit still. We rattle the right cages and things happen.
This is an instant information society. If your gonna drop bombs, you better be sure your hitting what your aiming for. The WW2 references are old and boring. We dont have to carpet bomb anymore. We can read license plates from space. If there was a change in plans, then that intel that was watching so closley should have picked it up.
What you might need to understand is that these people hate you. If you sit quietly, they will hate you. If you say you are sorry, they will see you as weak and hate you. They hate you. They hated the flight attendants and cut their throats, even though the attendants brought them a cup of coffee and a smile a few minutes earlier. It makes no difference.
And what YOU need to understand is that hating them will bring nothing.
If I remember Correctly, Afganistan, Pakistan
NOR Iraq Attacked United States.
If I REMEMBER Correctly United States Attacked Iraq TWICE - they did not attack United States.
So, who is the AGGRESSOR and who is the DEFENDER?
This attack in Pakistan WAS an ACT OF TERRORISM
from Benevolent Heretic
We have no idea if there would have been any more attacks if we had done things entirely differently. Most people fall for this defective logic (as you have) and that's one thing that keeps the war going strong.
I could hang garlic all around my house and claim that it keeps the bobcats away! Same logic.
from Souljah If I remember Correctly, Afganistan, Pakistan NOR Iraq Attacked United States.
No it isn't the same logic. Unless, of course you had bobcats around your house before you hung the garlic.
What exactly do you mean by harbouring?
Doesnt Canada got a bunch of oil up there? You guys better watch out. You never know when we might find a bunch of WMDs up there....
MSNBC is reporting this morning that, low and behold, we DID kill some terrorists there. See? We did a good thing!
Or as I see it, just another piss-poor back pedal on our governments behalf to cover their rear ends.
if living in a poor desert villiage where terrorists
sometimes hang out counts as 'harboring' them,
How blinded does one have to be to just believe what the government spoon feeds these days after the reputation they have?
