The civilians over there need to go through a civil war to rid themselves of the infectious parasites that they have living among them. This is their chance to do it, they never did or would have this chance if Sadaam was still there. It is totally up to the people over there what direction they want to go in. If they choose extremism, then they shouldn't be surprised when a bomb or 2 falls on their towns.
The 'infectious parasite' was OUR ally, as long as he did our bidding. Are you better with the Shiites 'torturing and murdering' Christians instead of Muslims? That is about the only thing that changed in that regard.

good that means we are hitting the terroist training grounds in the northren boarder regions of pakistan.

Which means less chance of them crossing the border to afganistan to engage our troops. which means less of our fighting men and women stationed over there will come under fire from insurgents.


I am all for drone attacks if it saves the lives and help protect our men and women who are stationed over there.

Sounds like what the left was saying about Bush right?

This a great example how dumbed down politics is in this country. People will defend something at one point and then condemn the same action some time later. Maybe the world is right. Maybe the majority of our country ARE fat ugly imbred retards who can't think for themselves.

If the people want a revolution they'd do it themselves. They don't need us to tell them they need it. It is not our job to police the world. There's dictators everywhere. If you feel we should be ousting every dictator then take yourself and your family and go take them out yourselves.

Let's just leave the so-called 'terrorists' alone shall we? At least until the next time we need to use them to fight the Russians for us.
