    We were fooled once with Iraq (sorta twice), almost in North Korea, and now the bush admin. is working on the third attempt at getting this country to rise in arms against another non-threat. I truly wonder how stupid some people must be to not be able to see how the government wants us to forget about the failed war in Iraq by making up new "threats to freedom". Terrorism only exists if you allow yourself to be convinced that it exists.

    Maybe you want to ask the families of the 250 people who were taken hostage in Iran and held for almost 2 yrs in 1979..
    and of all our military barracks bombed in Africa and the bombings in Bali and the first trade center bombing, the Oklahoma Meir building bombing, all our embassy's bombed over seas, the USS Cole bombing, airplanes HIJACKED.......................9/11

    Yea...terrorism is just a figment of "YOUR IMAGIMATION"..

    But some of us live.........IN THE REAL WORLD..

    OR...maybe you weren't born to see ALL THOSE...or maybe you just have your head up your....in the sand...:shock:

    Bush wants you frightened. If you're frightened you won't notice what else he's up to. A little Orwell anyone?

    And some of us actually assess threats rationally and don't run about flailing their arms and making absurd decisions based on fear and 30 year old grudges. :shock:

    This would be hilarious if not for the fact your defending the idea that somehow we are not at war with a global terrorist threat aimed right at us.

    I wait with bated breath for your sudden turn around if and when Hillary tells you in 2009 the war is real. Suddenly all the "evil" government pronouncements will be enlightened. The war will be "just" and the "intel" perfect. Gitmo will just be a Naval base again and troop rotations in and out of Iraq just the normal business of a "just" battle to save an ally.

    Iran will suddenly actually be working on a nuclear bomb and any action taken by Hillary will be the "right" thing to do. he exact same people all will still be working in all the intel agencies, all the Government agencies , law enforcement and the military, but suddenly they will "know" the truth.

    When the Patriot act is renewed and Hillary signs it, it will be a necassary bill designed to protect us from enemies and of course you will suddenly remember the built in end date. When Hillary allows all the supposed evil actions of Bush to stand and makes them even tougher, it will be OK cause she is just "protecting" us.

    I doubt many of those families want to go to war with iran for something that happened over a quarter century ago.


    That was done by Sunni fundamentalists - Al Qaeda - not by iranian shia or their allies. Sunnis consider the shia their blood enemy.

    That was domestic rightwing terrorism. What's that got to do with iran?

    Again, sunni fundamentalists, funded by saudis and other sunni arabs in the gulf states. Iran and the iranian shia had nothing to do with it.

    You appear to either be confused, or completely misinformed. Iran had nothing to do with the litany of attacks you cited. Your certainly should become more informed, and learn not to conflate all terrorists and all threats under the same simplistic banner as the "WOT". Its a wiser and more prudent use of resources, to focus on real threats to us, and not to shadow box phantom or less worrisome threats. Modern iran has never invaded or attacked another nation state. Do they support some terrorist by regional terrorists against israel? Yes. Israel is quite capable of defending itself. And israel responds in kind, by supporting anti-iranian kurdish terrorists in the kurd territories of iran.

    Iran is certainly a country that is a rouge state. Its certainly ruled by some theocratic knobheads. It is something to be managed, and dealt with. But, they had nothing to do with the attacks you cited. In fact, they have little to no real connection to sunni jihadiists; the ones who are attacking us.
