Comments: An Almost Word-for-Word Endorsement of al Qaeda's Worldview

Constant flow of LIES, Hypocritical Statements and Behaviour and Double Standards in Actions by people in power, unfortunately, confuses people and they can not tell the difference between FACT and PROPAGANDA, even if one has "Deep expertise in Afghanistan; expertise in Central Asia and the Former Soviet Union; development policy and security; defense & intelligence policy; research and analysis...etc etc etc.."!!!!

I'll bet IF WE apologized for ALL those harsh&mean things WE said, for ALL those "Freedom Fries", The French just might possibly let US buy into this war.

Twitter is perfectly named.

Yeah, crazy is as crazy does, as Forest Gump might have said.

i think there are different levels of empathy here, tho- if a man is grinding his boot heel into the throat of another man, and the subdued man fights back and kills the other, one could empathize with that violence- empathizing with the oppressor's violence, however, is not quite analagous

Egypt responded to US and IMF threats with 80% opposition to aid, up about 30% in a year. They saw aid was conditioned on how much the state gave aid to them. The aid instead goes more to the police. That's how Egypt affords to be more blatant in its oppression. US press's job is to cover for these, where it spends most of its time and therefore expects most of its profit.

If I didn't realize just how much WE LOVE these little brushfire wars so much I'd advise NOT PAYING for them. STOP PAYING for the glut-o-bombs WE have on inventory constantly, QUIT BUYING more everyday.
