That's why its called an opinion piece. Its his opinion on the facts, nothing more.
Originally posted by BlackJackalDo any of you actually beleive Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be terror fire bombings?
No, I don't. The allies did just as much damage to Dresden with conventional bombings. I feel it was the same thing with a different weapon.
Originally posted by BlackJackalWhat about the invasion of Panama did we invade for no reason? Like I said speaking out is fine but
speak the truth.
Since we were employing Noriega as a CIA operative of sorts before he turned I would say its a grey area. We didn't mind his corruption while he was
our bee-atch but used that same corruption to justify the invasion after he went against us. The Army at the time loved parading the journalists
through his house to show off all of his ill gotten loot. When we meddle in other countries affairs we have to accept blame where blame is due.
We didn't mind Saddam's cruelty in the 80's when he was gassing the Kurds (with weapons we sold him to use against Iran) and treating his people
like crap. But the minute he invaded an oil ally of ours it became a different story. Hipocrisy of the highest order regardless of his
