12 pages I read through and all I can say is that I am truly frightened for the future of this country if this site is any indication of the grasp on
reality and human history that many self-professed liberals have.
Kill my enemies? Damn skippy, without hesitation or mercy. If you think that you would fare any better with the Taliban or AQ please, be my guest
and try. Fly over to the Afghanistan or Pakistan and find a Taliban militia, walk right up, and give them a big old hug. Let me know how that works
out. If you don't have the stones to do that, just ask Daniel Pearls widow how he fared when he was there. Oh never mind, silly me, that was all
over the news or have you completely forgotten about that?
The reality of life is that hugs kisses and flowers are for your family, not your enemies.
For those of you who say that people who think like this are mentally defective or crazy, wake up. Your neighbor would sell you out to anyone who has
the right price. If this is somehow beyond your capacity to fathom, then you have lead a very sheltered protected life. You don't have to walk down
a street in Bagdad to learn this, all you have to do is walk through the wrong neighborhood here in the US. Try DC, LA, or Chicago then (if you
survive the experience) come back and tell me how all people really want is love and understanding.
Mac, I see what your saying and agree with pretty much everything you have stated. Keep the faith.
As far as the poster who said that Newt was being laughed at in the German Newspapers, who cares? Seriously, I think the Europeans have a lot more
pressing issues to deal with, like the coming collapse of the EU, so maybe you should stay out of American politics. Your political history, just in
the 20th century should prompt you to concern yourselves with yourselves.
Am I being to harsh? Maybe, but then again reality is a lot harsher than anything I can say.
Oh and just for the record, I far prefer peace to war, but there really are times when killing your enemy is the only alternative, ask anyone like my
grandfather who survive Auschwitz.
It is well that war is so terrible - otherwise we would grow too fond of it.

Peace. (no sarcasm)
