      folks that drank the al Quaeda koolaid (death to America blah blah blah), have maimed or killed Americans already and won't stop until they have performed some horrific act of terrorism in the name of Allah, you know, that sort of thing...

      No politician ever lost an election by underestimating the intelligence of the American public. PT Barnum, paraphrased...

      to kill thousands of Americans.  al Qaeda showed that on 9/11, and Bush showed that through invading Iraq.

      Join this Facebook group and call for a special prosecutor for war crimes and illegal spying.

      the A.Q. Khan network?  You won't find any of them in Gitmo.  Or any other prison, anywhere, either.

      Voting changes things. That's why they don't allow it.

        .... been killed by the CIA or Moussad a long time ago.

        We created that monster, when India with Soviet help achieved nuclear status, we in coldwar opposition to the "non-aligned" gave Pakistan a helping hand.

        So if AlQuieda gets a hold of a Paki nuke, in effect they are using our own bomb against us.

        Yes, you can actually make yourself such a threat to world peace that you need to be neutralized.

        Khan and some of his people are just that, and hopefully are out of action. We just don't know enough about behind the scenes in Paki these days. We can't even trust "our friends" there these days.

        But if Pakistan collapses, our forces will need to neutralize thier weapons, weapons manufacturing, material stockpiles and the scientists capable of rebuilding under a Taliban controlled Psycho-stan.

        That's what we pay our armed forces to do, keep us and our allies safe, by neutralizing actual threats.
