so what you're telling me, is that a B-25 whose pilot is trying everything he can to avoid the tens of skyscrapers in his way, and finnally crashing into the world trade center, will do the exact same damage as a 757 whose total intent is to put every last ounce of hisself into damaging the building ahead of him??
Wrong! Neither Panama nor Grenada were "U.N. sanctioned" as a matter of fact our closest ally, Great Britain, didn't even know about our plans to invade Grenada!
Do you realize that we had 28,000 US troops on the ground in Panama? ALL American troops.
In Afganistan there are 33,000 troops from a variety of different nations.
Do you realize we had 300 aircraft deployed in Pamama?
Compared to about 100 deployed in Afganistan.
Um...yes..they all did. Where are you getting this stuff?
You don't think Korea, Vietnam, or Panama is as well known as Iraq?

Non-Aggressors? WTF! How can you sit there and seriously say Saddam was a "non-aggressor"
Ya see, it is unnecessary for our government to ransack our largest city, kill thousands of people (possibly their own grandma, or nephew) to do something they have the power to do in the first place.

In 1970, a devastating tornado struck Lubbock, destroying more than $136 million in property, and several lives were lost. In the tough pioneer spirit for which West Texans are known, the citizens united, a bond package was approved, and many municipal improvements resulted. The Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, Lubbock’s Preston Smith International Airport, and the Canyon Lakes Park system were built. In 1972, the South Plains Mall was constructed, making the city a retail and wholesale trade center of a 26-county area of Texas and New Mexico.
Also, the F-Scale is based on damage to typical well-built houses. It doesn’t cover highly engineered buildings such as skyscrapers and nuke plants, which have never been hit by an F5-class tornado.
