Here's some advice: Keep up that tone of superiority and name-calling. I'm sure that's going to work for you and the Democratic Party.

It's done great for them so far. If the "world progresses toward liberalism" any farther the way it has up to now they might manage to get someone elected dog catcher.

a world free of tyranny and oppression will benefit our country, mankind and individuals. Liberalism versus Conservatism has little to do with the greater scheme of things, and the choices made the administration on the world stage.

A liberal allowance of the freedoms of the terrorists and the groups they represent, would infringe the freedoms of many. The future will oh-so-grateful that George was in office on 9-11 and your children, if you are so lucky to reproduce, will thank him too.

The narrow minded, self serving, aggrandizing interests of the liberal mindset is recognized as just that, and we cannot now, or in our future afford to be so selfish.
No, my children will not thank you for the American corporate monopoly of essential public services in Iraq. They will not thank me for the puppet democratic governments serving foreign interest over the needs of the people. They will not thank me of the violent behaviour of a nation governed by mob rule of the brainwashed masses.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll continue my "narrow minded, self serving, [and] aggrandizing interests" of funding universal healthcare, welfare, and unemployment insurance.

Oh, be sure to recommend the phrase "brainwashed masses" as part of a slogan for the 2008 campaign.

Not entirely true. If you happened to see the videotape of him right before election day, he specifically "exempted" Sweden from those he might wish harm on. And that of course is because Sweden by maintaining its neutralist stance has not positioned itself militarily in the Middle East.

reb - "Not entirely true. If you happened to see the videotape of him right before election day, he specifically "exempted" Sweden from those he might wish harm on. And that of course is because Sweden by maintaining its neutralist stance has not positioned itself militarily in the Middle East."

You assume that a man willing to murder thousands of innocent people, might not, *gasp*, actually lie to the infidels he considers worthy of death. Who would put such infamy past him? He's a mass murderer and all, but to actually lie in a propaganda video to confuse, split and disorient his enemies? Surely he wouldn't do such a nasty thing. No, I shall assume, with you, that he speaks the truth and nothing but the truth in his videos. His mother taught him morals and he would not lie.

Tell me, reblder, how many actual, full, translated documents of Al Qaida ideology and theory have you actually personally read? I have read quite a lot of them. I can tell you *for a fact* that you are projecting your worldview on Al Qaida.

To be honest I'm going by what was said in that video which means you need to ask yourself why Sweden(among other countries)has not been attacked by Al Queda. It didn't join the U.S. nor Israel when Lebanon was attacked in 1982, an action which Bin Laden revealed was the original source for his desire for revenge(the buildings in Beirut which I wasn't even aware of). And I have read from a number of sources that he went ballistic after the U.S. stationed a military base in Saudi Arabia on land he considered sacred to the Muslims.

This means that you cannot automatically assume that everything he's saying is a lie just by virtue of his having committed mass murder.

Sweden eh?

I wonder if Osama is planning on hanging out (hiding out) in the cold long nights of Sweden this winter? Maybe hes getting some special medical treatment there for his numerous reported medical conditions. Who knows?

This thread sure has been a hoot to read. Some people are trying to act so Peter Jenningsish concerned, while others are just playing around.

Seriously though, a superior attitude (as evinced for the bulk of John Kerrys career), will get you (outside of Massachusetts where apparently they fall for this stuff pretty often), absolutely nothing. So keep it up lefties. Otherwise, the right will be in power here for a very long time.

Ah yes, another informative post by our friend Ben.

Seriously, where DO you get all those facts? I mean, I try and post facts, and sometimes I post opinion, but WOW!!!!

You are just bubbling over with facts and evidence....seriously, you should be a lawyer.

Because you know, lawyers use facts to support their argument, and with all those facts and examples that you displayed, you'd win every case.

Are you giving a seminar soon on how to support your arguments, because when you said that cute lil 'pot calling blue kettle, etc.' line, I said to myself, "WOW! this guy not only says what he thinks, but he shows why he thinks it and then supports it with an overwhelming amount of evidence." [/b]
Sorry, but I couldn't help it. It was too easy. You tried to respond to my post with sarcasm, but it didn't work because it wasn't funny or insulting. You basically said my post was stupid because it was opinion. So was the post of yours that I quoted.

reb - So, again, I ask you: how many actual Al Qaida internal theory documents have you yourself read? It seems from your last post that you have read none (or else you would have cited them), and therefore, as usual, know absolutely zip about what you are talking about. You just like elements of his videotape that agree (!) with what you yourself already think.

Bin Laden wants to split and confuse and then conquer all Western powers, including Sweden. He regards it as meritorious to kill or convert every non-muslim, and seeks total world domination under the Islamic Caliphate. Anything less is a sin in the eyes of Allah. I did not get this from GWB, or the National Review, I got this from reading about a dozen or so translated theory manuals and documents written by Al Qaida theorists, including Bin Laden, but also many others. My views on their goals, comes from reading what they say, over and over again, they want to do: murder all non-muslims. Evidence of this was Zarqawi's recent murder of 50 Iraqi police officers. You probably view this as some sort of weird anti-imperialism. Zarqawi said he killed them because they were Shias (i.e. non-muslims, in his view).

Reb - their is no point in arguing with someone who won't even look at undisputed hard facts and evidence, such as Al Qaida's own actual documents.

If we are going to argue silly hypothetical situations, I suggest we contemplate a more relevant question:

Please reply with an answer to the question and the alternative question because discussing imaginary, obtuse, and silly situations is a great discourse. But, I will grant you an answer: yes, you will be a murderer.

The surprising fact about Republicans is that while the individual may be considered scholarly in an academic field, the Republican cannot logically deduce that they have the same mindset as terrorists: the philosophy of violent retaliation. The most disgusting characteristic of these fanatics, a characteristic that places them far below terrorists on the morality scale, is the imperialistic desires and personal greed that influence their politics. While terrorists may commit acts of violence in protest to injustice, for example US funding of the Israeli occupation, Republicans wage war, not just in retaliation of the World Trade Centre, but for corporate and religious interests. The Iraq war was not retribution for the annihilation of the skyscrapers, but purely an imperialistic conquest initiated by fanatics, funded by the greedy scum, and supported by the ignorant.

The narrow-minded nature of the Conservatives inhibits them from seeing consequences of their political agenda. The very nature of conservative politics will guarantee that while the world progresses toward liberalism, conservatives will only retard the inevitable. The future generations will regard present day Republicans with the same scorn as present day people regard the slave owners of the past. The grandchildren of Republicans will have to endure the pain of seeing their grandparents placed alongside Osama bin Ladin, George W. Bush, and Hitler as the great evils of the previous generation.
Here's some advice. Please, tell us who you are quoting. You never do. And for unintelligent, lazy conservatives like myself it's frustrating having to keep going back through the various threads.

Jeffrey....

While I haven't read those documents or manuals, my "counter" source would be the recent book "Imperial Hubris" by an anonymous CIA agent whose twenty year service for the agency involved a thorough investigation and research of Bin Laden and Al Queda. Possibly you know of the book itself since you're rather well read. Morever, I've referred elsewhere to this book.

The point he makes repeatedly in the book is that Bin Laden and Al Queda are in fact revulsed by Western culture in all its forms and would gloat at the prospect of the world converting to their brand of Islam but what they really are up in arms about(and in fact what has been the REAL motivating catalyst behind their attacks)is U.S. foreign policy in the Mid East.
They're not about to shed their blood over what they perceive as the decadent West. But over something like the stationing of military bases in Saudi Arabia, the collusion with the House of Saud, support for Israel, and most recently the attack of Iraq have really gotten them worked up more than anything else you could dream of.

That is exactly what they intend to shed blood over. I have cited my sources, not some government employee with a book contract, but the actual Al Qaida documents, going back over a decade. Is that book your only source? You need to read different points of view. Like travel, it broadens the mind. I have argued elsewhere that the Iraq war was a mistake and that what we will gain from it, will not outweigh the costs.

I'm rather surprised at you, Jeffrey. For a man who "prides" himself on how well read or informed he is based on statistics and wut knot, it's baffling why you'd be so quick to dismiss my source who has himself painstakingly for twenty years read all kinds of documents related to Al Queda and Bin Laden. He has also travelled to the area and I think this readily qualifies him as a long time pro at this whereas neither you nor I can hardly make that claim. Therefore I would trust his judgement on this far more than what any of perceptions are 'telling' you about OBL's intentions even they are written in these "documents" you cite.

BTW, I'm awaiting your review of the book I recommended by the Columbia Prof.

Thank you. Thank you for displaying your ignorance so clearly. The fact that you would have called me a murderer just after saving your life, makes you lose all credibility. Its like saying terrorists would rather fight Kerry, or that the sun is cold.

Killing a terrorist and killing an innocent victim is the same thing: killing. Yes...BUT, since you cant seem to distiguish between the two, I dont know what else I can do to help you.

If terrorists kill 3,000 Americans because of their hate of freedom and democracy, that is murder, obviously. But when we go and take out those terrorists, we are slowly eliminating violence from the world.

But you obviously cant see that, since you equate someone who killed your brother and someone who killed the person who killed your brother, as having done the same murderous act. Stop reading the NY Times and live in reality.

This is the danger of having those in power with similar ideological beliefs as you, yahababaoo. You wouldn't have taken on Hitler, or Saddam, or Osama...they would all still be running free as you clutch on to your copy of "Fahrenheit 9/11".

Some can tell you to go to heck in such a manner that you would think you might actually enjoy the trip, but that is far more polite than civil - JBryan

Jeez, Nunatax, give it a rest. If you read my last post in that thread, it very clearly summarizes my point of view and how we are just going in circles.

It's opinion vs. opinion...although I can go on forever debating homosexuality, trust me.

But after hundreds of posts on the topic, you know my point of view, and I know yours.

If you have some crazy evidence all of a sudden that shows the homosexuality is genetic, I'm all for it! But the only evidence people ever show are these articles talking about the psycho-analysis of animals.

Honestly. Furthermore, the debate isn't even about whether or not they are born that way...its about the selective discrimination of those who want to legalize homo marriage, but criminalize polygamous marriage, incestuous marriage, and other 'actions' that dont 'hurt' anyone.


If you want to get back on that pointless carousel, fine by me, but you will be riding alone.

If you magically come up with some facts showing a LEGITIMATE argument against my views, then you are more than welcome to start a new thread and show me. But I know there are no facts out there to refute my opinions, and visa versa.

Stop acting like a child and trying to drag me back into a debate, especially one where you ignore logic and facts, distract from the main debate, and one that you simply CANT WIN.
