Other than patting yourself on the back you've said nothing about what you're actually doing.

And you're there out of the goodness of your heart, right?

Bush on the other hand negotiated with him and allowed him to buy his way from the guilt of mass murder.

Not that the reality matters to you. All that matters is when you can't debate, you attack someone's schooling. Trust me, what you say and do tells not much about your schooling, but you.

Where did Saddam get WMDs?

.
We should give Reagan the same recognition that we gave Saddam!

I manage a large joint-use civilian-military airport where more than 300 Iraqis come to work everyday for a paycheck. Yes, commerce and economic impact is changing lives here.

So, tell me, what exactly are you doing to help others Burdell?

Oh my goodness. Now you think you know about me, my background, and what I represent. LOL All because you've had a chance opportunity to converse with me on a political forum.

Classic. Keep up the good work!

The poster suggested that the are nations that don't want to be free. I say that's utterly ridiculous. Would you like to go back and re-read my comments for context? It may do you some good.

YOU tell me first who issues your paycheck and who funds it?

YOU tell me first what you're doing to help others that doesn't entail a paycheck?

Sounds like you're there more for mercenary reasons than the altruism you're trying to sell.

I've been to Miami many times. Other than the beaches and attractive women, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if Miami faded into obscurity forever. Instead of a bastion of freedom, it's a bastion of crime and bottom-feeders. Maybe you should get out!
