    A war criminal, by any standard we applied at Nuremberg.

    Dammit, Fenian. I don't know about you, but I'm all about the president's absolute authority.

    If I wanted to be in a democracy, I'd start a revolution like my founding forefathers.

    I know that that sentence almost made me vomit.

    Join the happy throng. Many of us have been vomiting with some consistency over the past six-plus years.

    Well, Obummer's IRAQ strike force will save the day. And Fenian, I'd like you to complain just once about the beheadings and other executions performed in a desperate act by those Islamic freedom fighters. Oh I forgot. They're just pissed because Bush invaded. It has nothing to do with the goal of winning the world for Islam forcing you on your knees at the new, local mosque.

    The "other people do bad things, too, so why are you bitching at us" rationale, never gets old.

    Yawn conveniently changes the subject once again.

    And the line "they're just pissed because Bush invaded" may be one of the most hilarious bit of unintential comedy in some time around these parts.

    I guess if we applied that logic to World War II, wait.... forget it. It's like talking to a wall.
  10. It's fucking useless to argue with people who believe that, as long as the United States does it, it cannot be wrong. That's not patriotism. That's fucking bone-worshipping.
    This story should make every American ashamed of what we've allowed to happen to this country. People who can't see that, I simply do not understand.

    Justifying our actions by the standards of our enemies is truly unpatriotic and cowardly. Conservatives that use this rationale are more dangerous than any terrorist group. The greatest danger to our way of life is not our enemy but how we react to them. Selling out our values in the face of fear stemming from terrorism is the definition of losing the war.

    Hell, McCain knows this.

    It's our problem that Fredo and Mr. "So?" Boy remain focused on their own ends.
