If you really want to look back at evil empires. you should look back at the British
If you believe America had no presence in Eastern Europe and or East Germany combating Soviet Expansionism you are more deluded than I previously thought.
Sir David Omand, the former UK Intelligence and Security Coordinator, says: "Intelligence during the Cold War had a very big impact on the shape and size of the British defence programme, on the kinds of equipment we bought and very specifically the actual capabilities that were built into that equipment to be able to encounter whatever intelligence showed was the capability of Warsaw Pact forces."

Hello Rocky... Nice list. What would you propose. These attack listed have mainly been carried out by terrorist organisations. Not countries. You cannot very well go around invading countries without a damm good reason. That is in violation of the Geneva Convention. Come to think about torture is a violation of the Geneva Convention too.. It is considered a war crime.
Heck I guess it did not stop the two illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Why were they attacked oh yes I recollect now.. Because they had nothing what so ever to do with 911...
Do you ever ask yourself why there have been so many attacks on the US over the past years. Do you think it might have something to do with US foreign policy..
Nice picture of the solider too... I have nothing what so ever against the soldiers. They too are victims of war too... War is the same as it has ever been rich people sending poor people to die so they can make more money.... But lets be honest the government of the US is a war making nation... Have a look at the list below and ask why you need to be a state of perpetual war.. I would list CIA operatives but the list would be far too long..
Unfortunately, religious leaders are for personal gain and not for peace.

I dunno maybe this next comment should go in it's own thread. But really if we take the 3 major religions; Jews, Christians, and Muslims. They all pretty much agree on the old testament. If there is a God he does not want killing in his name. All he did was kick people out, when they messed up. He did not just randomly kill non believers. Religion should be between you and your God and that is it. Not trying to change the thread just a follow up to the jihad comment. I guess I have just gotten soft in my age, if you believe in Allah, and someone else believes in God, and I am an atheist. Don't try and convert me if you have facts I will listen. But other then that just get a long. The Muslims from Abraham just need to remember that.
LOL this has to be my favorite example, you do realise about a week before this happened the U.S shot down an Iranian passenger plane full of civilians right

The shooting down of the passenger jet by the USS Vincennes happened about 6 months before Lockerbie.
So that make's it justifiable in your book?
