    if China, Russia, or Iran covertly- or openly- killed American citizens in the U.S. because they were declared terrorists?

    What is Pakistan did? Or the new Iraqi government?

    Well obviously that would be terrible. 'We' can do it because we're "good" and "civilized" and we represent humanity and the course of history. But they are "bad," so when they do it it's bad.

    See how easy it is? :)

    Can they document said terrorism and tie it to said American thru irrefutable documentation. If they presented this evidence to the US government thru official channels, would they stand a better chance of assistance in apprehending the terrorist to be dealt with legally than we have when we've tried that course with them? :eusa_think:

    I'm not sure whether you knowing or you not realizing that's straight out of Marx/Engels would better highlight the irony...

    The US isn't interested in that kind of evidence:

    Hahaha, "You must spread some rep around" and whatnot, but that's pretty good! Not what I meant (didn't realize), but that makes pretty good sense, sadly enough.

    That's always the thing with Marx and Engels, great analysis, terrible solutions. =S

    You are quite right. I basically break it down into classes, because of my socialist nature, but there is the "other world" where the elite live by a different set of rules, and they can murder, rape & torture innocent detained and chained human beings and nothing happens to them because, as you say they are Godly pure, rich, always right, always powerful, do it for the good of America which is more civilized, moral & ethically straight than any country on the globe. Notice, other countries do not have Sunday mass with Billy Graham.
