I think you are confusing cheering for war with not being afraid of our enemies.
I, for one, think that we need to exhaust all options before going to war.
War is an ugly thing and affects the innocent.

However our enemies need to know just because we want to work things out doesn't mean that we are scared to fight.

This is real simple. For the last few years Iran has been talking trash. The problem is that we have to honor the threat. Nobody is going to blow Iranian ships out of the water just because they came into the Atlantic, but, you have to consider their talking about putting missiles in shipping containers amongst other things, gives reasons for us to be concerned.

Haha, I know all about those companies you mentioned, I know what they do, what they build and who they build them for and even the major investors of those companies, I am no foolnor did I ever assume you were a foolfor thinking the American people needed smacked around a bit, and for that statement you are a complete fool for assuming we will just sit back and watch some Hajji try to smack the American people around.
And you are a fool to even mention "World Peace", there will "NEVER" be world peace as long as religions exist so no matter what the "Elite" will always be the "Elite". Even if one of the aformentioned companies went under there would be another to take its place. Quit spamming this thread anyway I'm surprised you haven't replied to yourself, fool.

Boy oh boy, there is no fooling you

Anyways, this statement:

you are a complete fool for assuming we will just sit back and watch some Hajji try to smack the American people around.

...shows your true colors.

Im sorry, but the word "Hajji" is an offensive and racist word, and shows your true lack of understanding of people of the Middle East and is proof that the American propaganda machine is actually working.

Just curious, when you meet people of Japanese ancestory, do you refer to them as "Japs" or "Gooks"? How about dining at a Vietnamese restruant, do you refer to all the employee's as "Charlie"? Do you avoid Oktoberfest because of all them damn "Nazi's"?

I really dont see why you wouldn't, you swallowed up the propaganda, hook, line and sinker.

Here are a couple of posters that you might really enjoy from our own infallable, democratic government that would never mislead it's own people.


Considering you used the word "fool" 5 time in a two sentence, run-on paragraph, 3 of which were directly aimed towards myself, and then this little gem I recieved last night...

This is an automated U2U to let you know that Aliensdoexist has just added you to their respected foe list in their myATS Extended Profile, which is a new social networking feature of ATS.

...I must wonder, did I hit a nerve?

Does the fact that America may not be perfect scare you?
Does the fact that our government used deception of it's own citizens to justify an illegal war sit a little funny?
How about the innocent people who were raped and tortured at Abu Graib, is what happened to them ok, because they are "Hajjis"?

If "terrorists" hate and despise our freedoms so much, then why is the American Government doing their jobs for them, because last time I checked, it wasn't an Afghani farmer, or a devout Muslim or even Bin Laden himself creating legislation to take our freedoms away for "our own safety", but actual people who "claim" to be true Amercians who are elected by Nationalists just like yourself?

Good man. I'd of done the same.

In truth Persians are an interesting lot. Rich in culture and history.
Their country has poisoned them into thinking we are a great satan.
But when you talk to them they are very much like us.

Its the same mind game that most government(s) play with their citizens.

Its more so a political war then the people vs people

Well, The Iranian military is no match for the US military, plus the US has people much more advanced in warfare and tactics, so if some US soldiers get killed by Iranian forces, there will 100% be all out war with them, and they won't win it.

But it would be ok for the US to sink Iranian ships and kill Iranian soldiers withou them even doing anything. But if Iran responds in defence that bad and there gastly and evil?

On the contrary, historically, overconfidence by the American soldier is what has made America great.

overconfidence is never a good thing.

overconfidence killed 2,996 on 9/11

what I did say was that Iran should be held accountable for moving warships next to American waters.

Shouldnt America be held acountable for moveing warships next to Iranian waters then?

Sorry but one rule for all.
