Ahh - well then, that is an easy answer for me.

I think all goverments in the world lie when they feel it is needed as a means to acheive their ends or to cover themselves. The ends they want may differ from government to government. But, I think all the world's governments can (and do) lie to the people of the world.

Umm....yes, now you got it.


Do you really believe that a small puny group of fanatics could actually affect the U.S in any way?

Do you live under a rock?
Have you heard of 9/11, the USS Cole and the numerous U.S. military barracks and embassys which were bombed?



You are probably one of those people that thinks Iran could actually launch a missile all the way to America. Maybe if you looked at the map of the world a little more often than looking at the map of the U.S, you would know that they couldn't do that.

Oh yes, Iran would never ever use a nuke against Israel or try and sneak a bomb into the U.S. via their state funded terror groups like Hezzbolah.



The points you pick out from my previous post and how you reply to them shows that you don't know how to reply to the whole or bulk of what I am saying.

Yeah, because it really shows how ignorant and misguided your views really are.



GOD knows at least half of the people voting for McCain are only voting for him out of prejudice towards Obama

Of course but it's due to his leftist, liberal, socialist and marxist views and NOT because of the color of his skin. Again, your ignorance of America is astounding.


And no, it is not a good thing to not care about what others think.. that proves that America is an arrogant nation.

No it doesn't.

Of course people will do what is best for their own country. Nobody else is going to look out for one's country except for the people living in the country. I'm sure France or Germany will do what is best for them and so of course Americans will do what is best for America regardless of what other think. Your bias is apparent.


Breaking News: Plot to assassinate Obama.
Need I say more?

Yes, because what's your point?

Oh yeah, two people represent the whole country.
I'm sure no other country including yours has no crazy people living in it's borders.
Besides, why are you so quick to believe this story by the U.S. government and not the one's regarding the military? I see, you just pick and choose what to believe at random. Pathetic!

They not only wanted to kill Obama..They wanted to kill other african americans as well. I wonder why


You really believe terrorists from the middle east were actually smart enough to pull off 9/11 without even being noticed by the CIA? You think a bunch of small time fanatics could do that?

Wake up, 9/11 was an inside job. Most people here on ATS know that. I'm surprised you are a part of ATS, since it is the biggest conspiracy website in the world. Do some research will ya


And this is you:



Oh yes, Iran would never ever use a nuke against Israel or try and sneak a bomb into the U.S. via their state funded terror groups like Hezzbolah.


You didn't answer my question, Why do the U.S care so much about Israel?

Deny Ignorance indeed

Just guessing, but from the article below it stands to reason that Iraqi Forces got some intel on the location and maybe asked the U.S. to act on it to help end the insurgency in the Mosul area.

Iraqi Security Forces capture 15 in northern Iraq


Multi-National Corps – Iraq
PRESS RELEASE
RELEASE No. 20081026-02
Oct. 26, 2008

On Oct. 23, Al Qaim Special Weapons and Tactics team captured a suspected criminal in Husaybah. The individual is believed to be a weapons smuggler associated with the Abu Ghadiyah network and distributes money to other criminal cells.

On Oct. 24, Iraqi Special Operations Forces captured 10 suspected AQI cell members in eastern Mosul. The cell is believed to be involved with improvised explosive devices, vehicle-borne IEDs and small-arms fire attacks on Coalition and Iraqi forces.

So you are believing the U.S. government this time but not when it concerns the Middle East. Ok, got it.



Wake up, 9/11 was an inside job. Most people here on ATS know that.

Correction......SOME here on ATS believe this fallacy.


I'm surprised you are a part of ATS, since it is the biggest conspiracy website in the world.

So using your logic, in order to be part of ATS, I have to believe every loony conspiracy which is posted here. The 9/11 conspiracy is the king of crazy theories.



Do some research will ya

I do my research but apparently you don't since you seem to follow the crowd instead of thinking for yourself.



You didn't answer my question, Why do the U.S care so much about Israel?

Well, you don't answer most of my questions. But anyway, I will answer. The U.S. cares about Israel for numerous reasons and I will list a couple. For starter, they are our friends and ally. Don't you help out your friends?
Secondly, they are one of the few Democratic countries in the region and that must be propagated.


Deny Ignorance indeed

You should practice what you preach.

Perhaps the USA would be better defending the border and catching the enemy before they cross the border.

By now you know that they deliberately crossed the border to go after specific targets in broad daylight to send a message to Syria.

So you deny the plot to kill Obama and other african americans? I'm surprised, you seem to believe everything else the media tells you, why question this incident? I believe what makes sense.. you believe anything the officials tell you.

the 9/11 conspiracy is not a fallacy, I don't believe that 9/11 was an inside job because others do and I simply follow. I have believed this long before I ever joined ATS. My logic isn't to believe every loony conspiracy that one can come across, as you claim.

the 9/11 conspiracy isn't the king of them all either, in fact it is the smallest conspiracy that I can think of. The U.S government could have stopped it if it really were just terrorists. Either the government did it themselves(hard to believe eh) or they let it happen, soon ensued the crazy hunt for the head of every terrorist organization. Promotion of 9/11, terrorism, terrorists and terror attacks through the media.

Don't you see? Your head is filled with terms like Terror, Terrorist, Attack, 9/11, september 11, The Surge and so on. These subliminal messages keep you from questioning your governments actions. Infact, these terms make you support your government, no matter what. Who wouldn't support their government with all that fear?

Now.. On to Israel.

Funny how you mention Israel as a friend and ally, and that they are one of the few democracies in the region. What makes them so special? ever wonder that?..there are other democracies in the world, yet america loves Israel..do you know why?

Since you obviously don't know why.. I won't keep debating an ignorant, arrogant and closed minded person any longer.

It's funny you think I'm astoundingly ignorant. I'm not the one with the word sociopathic on my signature along with that sociopathic avatar.

Last of my posts..Peace

Wah? The Topic?

Oh yeah, the topic.

Analysis: Syria raid suggests new US stance


The U.S. operation was precipitated by intelligence that he was planning an imminent attack in Iraq, a senior U.S. official told The Associated Press. U.S. intelligence picked up similar reports last spring. The information — not detailed enough to take action on — was followed by the killings of 11 Iraqi policemen just over the border from Abu Ghadiyah's Syrian compound. He personally led the attack, the official said.

"The trip wire was knowing an attack was imminent, and also being able to pinpoint his location," the official said.'


and



The U.S. official confirmed that women and children were at the house, but he said "they were protected at the objective and left behind." He did not specifically address whether any women and children were among the casualties. He said "several" men were killed and identified them as Abu Ghadiyah's body guards.

The United States has been asking Syria to hand over, capture or kill Abu Ghadiyah for months or years. The U.S. Treasury Department claims he ran a resupply operation on the Syrian border.

Syria rebuffed the U.S. request, saying it was monitoring Abu Ghadiyah's activities, said two U.S. military officials with direct recent knowledge of U.S. intelligence in western Iraq

Huh? Boy, did you miss the point and have everything twisted around.

Of course I believe the plot is true. Duh!
The point is why do you?
When the government says it attacked a terror hideout in the middle east or foiled a terror attack in America, you choose to NOT believe the story as you pointed out regarding the article I posted. However, regarding Obama, you seem to believe the government story hook, line and sinker with no doubts.
Selective and random choosing of which stories to believe and not to believe is your motto and the point.


Now back to the topic at hand........

Umm....yes, now you got it.


Do you mean the ones that live in countries that CIA planes secretly took people to be tortured in, like Syria?

Or are you referring to the chemical weapons used against innocent civilians in Felluga by the Marines?

Or the CIA sponsored Terrorists groups in Iran toady?

Which groups are your friends, and which are the enemies?

Will be a slightly confusing for you to answer that honestly eh?



Do you live under a rock?
Have you heard of 9/11, the USS Cole and the numerous U.S. military barracks and embassy’s which were bombed?


Why didn't the US go into Saudi Arabia last night then if they are after the perpetrators of those acts and more recent ones?

Can you point to any Syrian Terrorists responsible for those acts? with reliable sources, I have many many my friend all independent!



Oh yes, Iran would never ever use a nuke against Israel or try and sneak a bomb into the U.S. via their state funded terror groups like Hezzbolah.



Iran has no nukes what are you talking about?

There is NO organisation called Hezzbolah?
who are they?

Did you mean Hezbollah?
Or is it a new one made up by the the administration like al Qaeda?
Figures excuse to invade Iran Like other countries.

Are you using the same sources as C.Powell before the UN on Iraqi WMD or the high school diploma paper of the net that was put before the British Parliament to "prove" he could fire WMD's on rockets to Europe "within 45 minutes"

I think we will stick to the IAEA as reliable.



Yeah, because it really shows how ignorant and misguided your views really are.


I think you are externalising your own thought process there, you certainly don’t seem to have any actual facts to talk about, just hyperbole, and spin.



Of course but it's due to his leftist, liberal, socialist and Marxist views and NOT because of the colour of his skin. Again, your ignorance of America is astounding.

Or maybe the American who is typing that is living in a fantasy world or Barbie, Fox, Spin, Lies and in fact your understanding of America is obviously very ignorant, Obama is Marxist?
nearly laughed so much I spat the coffee over the keyboard, can you name one of his policies that are Marxist?

Do you even Know what Marxism is?
obviously not, I don't think you have read Das Capital, probably too busy with Mien Kampf?

It is so apparent and obvious Im afraid to inform you, that you have just picked up a label because its been said to you enough times, you’ve been brainwashed into prejudice, and now have a Label to through at the Apparent choice of Left as apposed to the right in politics, they dangle in front of you for you to choose between them.




Of course people will do what is best for their own country. Nobody else is going to look out for one's country except for the people living in the country. I'm sure France or Germany will do what is best for them and so of course Americans will do what is best for America regardless of what other think. Your bias is apparent.


Im sorry only last week the White House was saying America should bring "democracy" to the world. On your basis and premise how come you feel its ok for you to force your opinion on others, but them not on you?
Your BIAS and BULLYING stance are apparent no one else’s.

I think then Europe should invade the USA to get our pensions, and financial security back based on this premise, the crisis started there, based on the American Mismanagement of Governance and Regulation and extreme greed with no accountability?

Why not?



Yes, because what's your point?

Oh yeah, two people represent the whole country.
I'm sure no other country including yours has no crazy people living in it's borders.
Besides, why are you so quick to believe this story by the U.S. government and not the one's regarding the military? I see, you just pick and choose what to believe at random. Pathetic!


Well believing Obama is Marxist negates all you say above about picking and choosing what to believe, and thank god indeed that the two people in the country who believe and think like you do namely Bush and you, thank God you don't make the whole country.

If I was Canada or Mexico and thought you lived near the border I might be tempted to "take action into our own hands" to secure my borders from crazies :-)

Kind Regards,

Elf.

Ps Das capital and Marx The Way can both be got in Libraries in your town I am sure, get them out and compare them to the Democrat's and Obamas plan, sooo soo funny.

Thank you for the smile, I needed it today if you have not looked in the mirror recently the world is full of crazies!

It can get disconcerting at times.

Elf

Wow a little tense in here I would say, I am a American and proud to be one, not for the defiant posture of the government complete with the Doh !!!! homer Simpson expression but for the rest of us who have the right to stand up and say I don't agree with that.
Does anyone here honestly believe that the future can be changed ??? seriously that would take a avast majority of people, of all colors, religions, eta... to come together and say we are taking control of our lives and no longer need your services.
I know it's off topic but I will bring it back around soon, we the people inhabiting the earth are responsible no matter where we live. As a American I have become complacent with day to day life here as it effects my freedoms because I must focus on being able to pay my bills let alone find some sanity or happiness ( must be the fluoride ). But I open doors for people young, old, male, female, doesn't matter I try and perpetuate good karma and hope it is passed on.
Until we the people take responsibility for our actions its not going to stop no matter what country you live in.
America evil ??? just as much or less as every other country on the face of the earth, its just lines in the dirt and signs on the side of a road. Considering that we are the melting pot of the world and have people from every culture imaginable I can't see being singled out as evil.
Try being nice and try to understand another persons point of view you never know they might return the favor and respect your borders.

Yesterday I privately noted that Gen. Petraeus was giving Syria high marks just a few months ago for its cooperation reducing the influx of foreign fighters into Iraq.

There were a lot of articles mentioning how the influx from Syria was down from 100 to just 20 a month.

Several articles quote the Syrian Foreign Minister saying the U.S. knows that Syria has been tightening their border with Iraq.

The U.S. Secretary of State discussed the issue with the Syrian ambassador less than 30 days ago.

I also read two separate articles with eyewitnesses complaining that the Syrian military was just down the road and did nothing.

These little details started giving me the idea that, (despite all the crying to the media and the U.N), Syria covertly approved the raid. They just couldn't let the rest of the world know that, for "whatever" reason. It just seems to fit the puzzle pieces.

Somebody agrees with me.

Syria 'Gave Green Light For Raid'


Mr Bergman told Sky News the raid happened after America had lobbied Syria intensely to deal with an al Qaeda group conducting activity on the border.

The Syrians were unwilling to be seen publicly bowing to US pressure to tackle the group, he says, but in the end gave the Americans the green light to do so themselves.

He claims the Syrian government told the Americans: "If you want to do this, do it. We are going to give you a corridor and carte blanche. We will not harm your troops."

What is interesting is that US forces usually prefer night time to conduct such raids. Must have been a time sensitive target.

Hopefully they were able to achieve what they were after!

You choose the propaganda you wish to believe, I choose mine.



The unidentified US official said the weekend raid on the Syria-Iraq border had been "successful," and that among those believed killed was Abu Ghadiya, "one of the most prominent foreign fighter facilitators in the region."
