Of course, start with the standard "Your views arent my views so you must be a brainwashed sheep...good start.
Not at all. But when Gatordone starts spouting the tired rhetoric of "they want you to convert" and "they hate us", it stinks of the brainwashing
and hides the true reasons for the terrorism.
Yes. Please humor me and the billions of others that believe this as well.
I think you'll find that "billions" don't believe it. Recent opinion polls show a significant proportion of people around the world, especially
outside the US are not convinced of the official story behind 9/11.
Yes, you are right but leaving out much. AQ's greatest desire is to wipe us and the Israeli's out...completely. They have never minced words
regarding their blatant HATE for our way of life and freedoms.
So while this was not the backbone of their attack, it certainly represents several vertebrae on that backbone.
They only ever refer to forcing us out of their lands. They never once have stated they wish world domination and everyone to be Islamic. They often
do spout rhetoric concerning our "infidel ways", but only as a qualifier for wanting us out of their land.
And this is a bad thing? We are capable of defending ourselves and because we havent been "invaded" we should feel ashamed?
You missed the point. I was referring to Gatordone's assertion this is in any way a "real" war. Back in the good old days, intelligence services
and Police would (successfully) deal with terrorists. The Uk didn't invade Ireland during the 30 years of the troubles, nor did we bomb the USA for
providing funding and weapons to the IRA.
Oooh, the hypocrisy....
Invading other piss poor countries on a whim does not cure terrorism and is not a "war".
Besides, you have been invaded on numerous occasions, but invasion does not equal "real war". The UK hasn't been successfully invaded for nearly
1000 years, yet we have known many, many "real wars".
Also remember, you enjoy those Big Macs too....all it cost was a couple hundred thousand American lives.
Not really. What lives are we talking about here? Or are we going down the line of "We saved your ass in WW2" again?
What's "to assume" about this? You want us to think we did it to ourselves then use OBL's quote to prove he doesn't hate us? Blithering
Now, where in my statement did I say the US did it? I just don't buy the official story. I'm open to idea's... I said "assume", so that we had a
context to operate in with regards to the discussion.
Care to address the point at all? Or is this going to be all deflection from you?
The Terrorists in Iraq are from all over the muslim world. These are future French and Brittish Citizens that arent slumming your cities down yet. You
should be thanking us.
And they are only there because we are there. They weren't "terrorising" before 2003, where they?
As for your other comment, that displays a huge amount of ignorance. Thank you for what, exactly? Dragging our fine forces into this war for profit
that hardly anyone in the UK wanted? Turning us into a target for terrorists? I think you'll be kissing my hairy, white bottom before you get a thank
A little self righteous condesention goes along way, eh? You seem to feel as though you know Americans pretty well all the way from across the pond.
Ah, how brainwashing works...
Ah, assumption is the mother of all fudge ups. You seem to be under the impression I don't know any Americans......
