Mc Cain just talks with someone else's script, truly he is a lost and found commodity, that nobody in the world would even wink an eyebrow about, nobody even knows him, at least dubya with all his goat story crap, made world news. mc cain should apply for a walking stick

I have a problem with it because that's exactly what they said about Iraq. They had WMD's and were a threat to America because of their ties to Al Qaeda. Both of which were admitted to being false. The idea of pre-emptive war is for dictators and despots. People are building arms and tension against us because of our actions. If we weren't so concerned with snuffing out anything that disagrees with us maybe certain people wouldn't have a reason to hate us.

One of the more foolish and naive posts I've ever read. Did you get that from a recent sociology lecture?
Worse, you would have the U.S. give up the right and responsibility to its citizens to preemptively (only if necessary) defend itself?
And that part about the rest of the world being armed only because of the U.S.? Another example of the revisionist history drivel that passes for education these days.
Like I said, foolish and naive ...
It's not the rest of the world, just the part of the world against us.
Who trained Bin Laden, the Taliban, and the related mujaheddin to fight against Russia?
Who supported Iran in it's war against Iraq, and overthrew their government?
Who switched sides and helped Iraq after our replacement leader was driven from the country?
Who gave Iraq the gas Saddam used to kill the Kurds in the north?
Who gave Iraq the technology to build SCUD missiles and their launchers?
I could go on, but these are some of the most obvious. So yes, I would say we have helped those who wish to kill us now.

However, we can not just lie down. We do have a serious threat posed against us by radical terrorists.
I also feel stronlgy that many of the people here that are so against protecting our country are doing so because they do not believe the story for 9/11 in the first place so they see it all as pointless.
