Imagine, if you can, an alternate universe.

Imagine that in this alternate universe, a foreign military power begins flying remote-controlled warplanes over your town, using onboard missiles to kill hundreds of your innocent neighbors.

Now imagine that when you read the newspaper about this ongoing bloodbath, you learn that the foreign nation’s top general is nonchalantly telling reporters that his troops are also killing “an amazing number” of your cultural brethren in an adjacent country. Imagine further learning that this foreign power is expanding the drone attacks on your community despite the attacks’ well-known record of killing innocents. And finally, imagine that when you turn on your television, you see the perpetrator nation’s tuxedo-clad leader cracking stand-up comedy jokes about drone strikes—jokes that prompt guf

  • God help them if they do get a bomb to go off successfully. You would see B-52's on non-stop bombing runs over that region in Pakistan.

    And shove this limp noodle libtard logic where the sun don't shine. They see that kind of thinking as weakness and it only encourages more savagery. The only thing these cave monkeys respect is brute force.

  • More liberal apologist bullshit. America responded to muslim fanatical aggression. The US has placed a bootheel on the throat of murderous, fanatical, muslim freaks that dream of a global muslim theocracy.

    This filth murdered thousands of our people in a single stroke, and we have responded by destoying their dank, dark holes that this vermin crawl into and breed. And we are committed to killing as many as we must kill until they crawl back into their holes.

    History is full of muslim up More..

    • Exactly.
      'It's our fault they tried to bomb Times Square because we are prosecuting a war against them' is the basic premise here, and 'if we stop killing them, they'll stop killing us' is the theory.
      Trouble is, they bombed US first, and if we don't kill them first, they will kill more of us.
      Simple math.

    • I agree, what this article fails to mention is that the leaders of these "patriots" want to create a global Muslim theocracy similar to Nazi Germany. Some of the ordinary fighters might be doing what they do for the right reasons but most of their leaders are downright evil.

  • The United States' unrelenting support of Israel over the years has been the biggest recruitment tool to Islamic terrorist organisations. While Israel steals land, builds colonies on that stolen land, bulldozes Palestinian homes, shoots and bombs unarmed civilians (well over 7,000 killed since 2000), holds Palestinians in prison without charge or legal access, deliberately destroys Palestinian civilian infrastructure and enforces ethnic cleansing the United States sends them billions of dollars More..

  • Couldn't agree more. As long as we keep fucking around in that part of the World, using young Americans to fight Goldman Sach's battles for them, we will have to deal with being a major target of the ragheads. Unfortunately, the leftards use information like this to justify disarming us and leaving us vulnerable as if it's their job to mete out justice to their own civilization by taking sides with those who now definitely want to destroy it.

    • Hardly- we've freed W.Europe from Hitler, most of the Wpacific islands from Japanese Military, SKorea from communism, and Iraq from fanatics...they get a 2nd chance. By the way, if the flag you display is where you claim you're from, the U.S. saved NZ too- otherwise, you'd be thinking, speaking, and writing Japanese...if they had let your forebearers live. You're a freakin' troll.

  • Like I say all the time you cannot invade, occupy and bomb peoples homes and think there will be no blowback. The American empire has been invading and occupying far too long.
