What did I just read? Do you mean it was NOT Obama's fault?
Hell just froze over.
I am darn sure he didn't go check them out and reach a conclusion on his own so the was just repeating what those he depends on told him. His selection of those to depend on is another issue.
alprova said... He will be a great man for as long as the history books write about him, no matter how badly you write about the man.
I doubt it but then history treats Jimmy Carter ok which means anyone holding the office is generally not trashed. At the rate his popularity is dropping he may be the most out of favor when vacating the position in recent history.
alprova said...I know that, but it is because we (as a nation) have killed so many innocent people in the Middle East.
You sound like Ron Paul. How do you explain why countries that have not done them harm have experienced terrorist attacks also.
Is that why they killed so many innocent people, including many women and children, from their own country? Did we make them do that because we (as a nation) have killed so many innocent people?
You don't know that at all. You're repeating propaganda.
I am not repeating propaganda I am expressing an opinion as to what will happen to the American traitors. The congressional committee chairman estimates around 100 Americans, several from Minnesota have joined ISIS. CNBC showed a video of one of them.
Really? If that is so, why was there no mention of them in the press...anywhere...until a month ago?
There was no reason a year ago for there to be any press about ISIS but the congressional security committee acknowledges they had knowledge of their activity. Apparently they agreed with the president when said not too long ago they were the JV. Obviously those that should have reacted sooner misjudged ISIS commitment to control Iraq, their resources and size. Obama is not to blame for not knowing when those that should have been telling him blew it.
The CIA and intelligence services are not what they once were and since congress has been more involved and doing what congress says is over sight. Actually most of them have no idea what the CIA can and should do but like being in the position of being the first to know and the secrecy they violate when it is to their advantage.
alprova said....A little more than 3,000 innocent Americans died on September 11, 2001, who were targeted by cowards with a grudge against our nation's leaders.
Rest assured their grudge or hate is not limited to the nation's leaders. They prefer a big name to kill but let them have a shot at your fat ass and you can kiss it good-bye. Any American that don't join them is a target. Those American traitors will be shot or beheaded once ISIS has no further need for them or they refuse to return to America and commit a terrorist attack.
ISIL/ISIS is not new and have been known by some in congress and the administration for quite some time. They under estimated their capability and insanity.
The U.S. has the capability to bring a quietness to the entire region for many, many years but we don't have the resolve to do it. Sadam Hussein was right when he said the U.S. can win the initial battles but Americans don't have the stomach for what will follow. The strategy congress and others provided the president is like every thing else they do, kick the can down the road, react to the next crisis. The can may not be kicked as far as they think.
I understand and don't blame Obama for what he is probably thinking. To himself he is likely saying let me get the hell out of here and get on the make me rich speaking tour. If I can just keep dancing without a major attack on U.S. soil I can get my library, an agent, a vacation and money making speaking tour combined.
ki said.. I think my writing and grammer skills are pretty superior, even with all the typos 'n stuff, dontcha' think? ;)
Yes, I don't often agree with your opinions and conclusions and I object to you not quoting me accurately then attacking a comment not made but you express an opinion with flare and style. As far as I know there is no penalty or points loss for grammar errors or typos. I haven't seen anyone here that would be considered a grammarian. Some of your responses indicate an attempt to speed read thus attacking a point not intended or made. I get the impression you are an Obama disciple come hell or high water.
Ki,You might want to reread your post since you make so many mistakes or maybe you don't have a dictionary. NYT is your source, how dumb. No wonder you are so misinformed.
annarose...Readers of the NYT, The Post and other publications trying to sell printed media think doing so makes them appear to be sophisticated and aristocratic. It is often called pseudo sophistication. It is hilarious how many of them think reading the NYT or some blog is research.
ki said...fairmon, you're the one who used the phrase past transgressions having no bearings whatsoever on what's taking place in the middle east today. You are simply clueless if you believe that.
Why do you misquote? Read the original post. I did not say and do not think past events have nothing to do with todays situation. The point made was todays situation is there and all your blame game, ranting and holier than thou pseudo intelligence blathering means nothing and does nothing about or suggest anything to do about today's situation. Americans are being beheaded, 100's or 1000's slaughtered by ISIS terrorist including women and children. They are low life animals, criminals that want you dead and want to plant a flag at the Whitehouse. Why don't you go over there and put them in "time out".......What would you do?
fairmon rambles, "How does accusing someone of a past transgression whether that accusation is valid or not change today's facts? "
Read the damn post. It does not relieve Bush 43 of responsibility but the question is what is the right thing to do about the mess now? I wish we had never gone to any place in the middle east but both democrats and republicans have poked around there for decades.
The point is bad mouthing, blaming, ranting and raving does not change one iota todays situation and facts. Two Americans were beheaded, women and children are abused and buried alive. Are you suggesting we do nothing or should we just shuttle them all to the southern border and tell them how to enter and stay?
inqmindless said...You have no idea why folks reneged citizenship, it could be ⅔ are in ISIL now.
Your ignorance is glaring. The information regarding those in or moving to foreign countries being aggressively taxed with extremely complex filing requirements is from an associated press article with the number of expat's from the IRS...Zero are in the middle east and if you want to know the names and locations you could. But no you rather run your mouth without facts but attack anyone that post facts you don't like.
As an investor buying ki for actual worth and selling for what she values herself would be like finding a ton of pure gold, wash the crap off and sell.
