n February of 2006, the Norman Y. Mineta International Institute for Surface Transportation Policy Studies (MTI) published their report entitled: “Saving City Lifelines: Lessons Learned in the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks”. “There were continuing moments of alarm. A panel truck with a painting of a plane flying into the World Trade Center was stopped near the temporary command post. It proved to be rented to a group of ethnic Middle Eastern people who did not speak English. Fearing that it might be a truck bomb, the NYPD immediately evacuated the area, called out the bomb squad, and detained the occupants until a thorough search was made. The vehicle was found to be an innocent delivery truck.” (source: MTI Report 02/06) “An innocent (rented) delivery truck” with... ... a mural painted on the side depicting the events of 9/11 ON 9/11?!? How is that “innocent”?
Either way, there is certainly a war of the minds going on, to convince you that Muslims are all bad and that Islam is taking over the world.
The Westoboro Baptist Church thanks god when soldiers die. I don't see us declaring war on them?

Regardless of what you want to believe, we didn't go to Iraq because of 9-11. Afghanistan, yes. Iraq was for WMD -- which, if you read some of my posts in other threads, WMD were proven to have been found, but never reported because the liberal media refused to do so -- they could never admit Bush was Right.
NONSENSE -- PROVE IT! Sorry for the caps but there has NEVER been any evidence proving the WMD's were found. Liberal media? Are you kidding? If Fox had proof that Bush was right it would have been ALL over their network.
I need to see your posts with this "evidence" for WMD's in Iraq please.
At any rate, SOMEONE needs to be the leader. If the world was a company, there needs the existence of a SINGLE final decision maker.
No, nobody needs to "lead" the world. The world can lead itself. We don't need governments deciding what's best for people. I'm sorry.
What? There should be no "world" policy. People should make their own laws as they see fit, within their own borders.
You can't have 60 voices trying to make policy -- it simply won't work.
In this case, SOMEONE needs to police the world. We are the richest nation (at least were), with innovations that POWER the world. We have to defend all that we have created.
No, again, nobody needs to police the world. Keep your noses out of other people's business. And you aren't the richest nation in the world, if you factor in your debt you are one of the poorest in the world. And you have a FIAT currency. All the US has created is a dictatorship all around the world.
Occupying lands that DO NOT belong to them in the name of safety. Really? How many Americans have died due to terrorism in the last 6 years, that weren't soldiers?
America has been the decision maker in all modern wars. If we don't do it, guess who will? Russia. China. Do you really want a world under Russian domination?
The only reason that's true, is because the US started most of those wars, or was an instrumental part in influencing leaders of other nations to start conflicts. All dictators in the middle east are ones the US placed in power.

Well Im' happy to look at your info, but I must stress, I'm not a liberal, not even close, so please don't assume that about me.
I've never been presented with credible info of WMD's so I will take a look and get back to you once I've read and understood what you've posted.
Thanks for the info.
Yeah, but nobody is trying to start a war with the US, that's the difference. It's not propaganda to say that the government of the US are a bunch of war mongering imperial elitists. You can't say the same about it's people, but you can blame them for being complacent and allowing their government to commit these crimes in their names.
These other countries like Iran, they don't have the vast media resources to carry on a consistent and well orchestrated campaign of propaganda.
