Title: Republicans dazed and confused as President Obama continues drone war
Post by: wvit1001 on 05 29, 13, 11:47:27:AM
The Republican Party is in such a state of confusion that it is mystified over what it is supposed to be baffled about.

Newt Gingrich said in March that the Republican establishment was “mired in stupidity” and on Sunday Bob Dole said the party should be “closed for repairs.”

The Republican National Committee issued a report a few months ago quoting focus groups as saying the party was “narrow minded,” “out of touch” and full of “stuffy old men.”

[In fairness, the GOP is full of stuffy young men, too.]

On Capitol Hill, the gulfs within the Republican Party grow greater every day. Some Senate Republicans have finally come around to the view that they were elected to pass legislation, do the people’s business and actually accomplish something before retiring and becoming wealthy lobbyists.

But House Republicans feel differently. They believe they were elected to block new legislation, repeal old legislation like Obamacare and make sure nothing gets done before retiring and becoming wealthy lobbyists.

The Democrats have been unable to do much in the face of this, though they continue with the transformation of their image.

With the killing of Osama bin Laden, persisting with the war in Afghanistan (while promising to end it,) maintaining Guantánamo as a detention center for suspected terrorists (while promising to close it) and using drones to rain death from the skies upon our enemies, the Democratic Party has transformed itself into the party of strong defense, while making the Republican Party look weak and wimpy.

The Republicans at first thought that they could use drones as an issue, but it hasn’t turned out that way.

In a lengthy speech last week, President Barack Obama said we are at war and that as a wartime president, he has taken certain measures to protect America including the use of drones. “So this is a just war — a war waged proportionally, in last resort, and in self-defense,” he said.

Former presidents probably would have been baffled by Obama’s need to defend the 400 drone strikes he has ordered that have killed about 3,000 terrorists and militants during time of war.

When Harry Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, “proportionality” was not an issue. Truman (and the rest of the America) was still outraged by Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in which 2,402 Americans were killed.

Don't you mean LIBS are dazed and confused by Obama's wars?  After all, it's LIBS who don't like military use of force, remember?  It's the LIBS who should be upset at Obama for his wars, not Republicans.

Post by: wvit1001 on 05 29, 13, 12:06:17:PM
the Americans that were killed were terrorists or were hanging around with terrorists, which is a good way to get yourself killed.

When a U.S. citizen goes abroad to wage war against America – and is actively plotting to kill U.S. citizens; and when neither the United States, nor our partners are in a position to capture him before he carries out a plot – his citizenship should no more serve as a shield than a sniper shooting down on an innocent crowd should be protected from a swat team

Who were these American killed by drones?



Anwar Awlaki was – he was continuously trying to kill people. He helped oversee the 2010 plot to detonate explosive devices on two U.S. bound cargo planes. He was involved in planning to blow up an airliner in 2009. When Farouk Abdulmutallab – the Christmas Day bomber – went to Yemen in 2009, Awlaki hosted him, approved his suicide operation, and helped him tape a martyrdom video to be shown after the attack. His last instructions were to blow up the airplane when it was over American soil. I would have detained and prosecuted Awlaki if we captured him before he carried out a plot. But we couldn’t. And as President, I would have been derelict in my duty had I not authorized the strike that took out Awlaki.


Samir Khan was one of them and was the guy who ran the website where the Boston bombers got the plans for their bombs.

Abdulrahman Al-Aulaqi - a 16-year-old American boy and the son of al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.  His dad shouldn't have been keeping his son around him while plotting against America.

Obama’s speech on Thursday also comes as key lawmakers are looking at revising the post-9/11 law that underpins virtually every aspect of the so-called war on terrorism.

The law, best known as the Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF, sailed through Congress by overwhelming votes shortly after the 2001 terror attacks. It gave the president the power “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.”

the Democratic Party has transformed itself into the party of strong defense, while making the Republican Party look weak and wimpy.

So, they're saying that the Democrat Party was weak and wimpy during the Bush administration?   It worked for Obama.

Reality is that parties have been transforming themselves every time majority power switches between D and R.  And that's the problem.

Why do you insult our military that way? I'm sure they tried to get him, don't you think. What should the military have done differently at Tora Bora?   I'm glad you at least admit that it was the proper thing to do to invade Afghanistan to get at least that close to getting Osama.

In his letter to Congressional leaders, Mr. Holder confirmed that the administration had deliberately killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric who died in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen. Mr. Holder also wrote that United States forces had killed three other Americans who “were not specifically targeted.”The American involvement in Mr. Awlaki’s death has been widely reported, but the administration until now had refused to confirm it. Likewise, Mr. Holder confirmed the government’s role in the deaths of Samir Khan, who was killed in the same strike, and Mr. Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who died in another strike. The letter disclosed the death of a fourth American named Jude Kenan Mohammad but gave no further details.


we bombed dozens of german and japanese cities to the ground in WW2, and who knows how many expatriated americans might have been living in those cities...i wonder if chickenshit bitches like queeno would have cried about their deaths in those civilian targeted bombings???  what a little bitch.

You can not just say you are at war with crime to justify the government murdering people in cold blood with nothing but suspicion, which is exactly what the drone murders are.

And the claim that it is the victims own fault for being near people or places that some arrogant plutocrat thinks suspicious? Total bullshit.

We have courts and trials for a reason, mere suspicion is not enough to kill someone and is certainly not enough to kill anybody who happens to be around.

If you think someone is plotting a crime, PROVE IT. In court.

The drone murders are NOT acts of self defense, they are brutal acts of murder by a totally corrupt bunch of plutocrat scum.

So why not bomb suspected criminals here and say if you "hang around" criminals then you deserve to die? Same thing. After a drive by shooting you could go bomb the suspects. After an armed robbery, go bomb the suspects. If a cop is shot, go bomb the suspects. And blame all the victims of your bombing.

That would be no different than what is being done now. Wait, no it would be different, because then there would be actual crimes the bombs are in retaliation for. Right now there are often not even actual crimes. They have admitted that, they bomb people not for what they have DONE, but because of suspicion they MIGHT do something. Sometimes it is not even that much, only suspicious activity at a place with no one person being the target.

So how about it? How would you like that happening on your street, done by the government? Would you cheer it on? If not then you are a hypocrite.

You all are the ones who claim 911 was justified, not me. I claim the opposite, that such attacks ARE NOT JUSTIFIED and ARE CRIMES. You however claim such attacks are perfectly justified (when you are the ones doing it). Your only gripe about 911 is someone else did it. But you totally agree with the reasoning behind justifying it. I do not.

And terrorists, more specifically terrorist SUSPECTS, like all criminal suspects, should be immune from bombing, especially if only one non-suspect is nearby. duh. You arrest suspects. It is a crime to murder them and any nearby.

Even harder when you do not even have a warrant or a charge. Even harder since you do not even have jurisdiction.

How about we solve crime by having other countries come bomb suspects here and say oh it would be too hard to arrest?

Get a clue already. IT iS WRONG.

September 22nd, 2011


Under the Constitution, the Constitution prevails over international law. The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), signed into law ten years ago this week, prescribed no time limitation or geographical limitation. It was, potentially, a world war of unlimited duration.



On September 18, 2001, Congress enacted into law, and President George W. Bush signed, what is arguably the broadest declaration of war in our nation’s history. “Whereas on September 11, 2001, acts of treacherous violence were committed against the United States,” begins the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF),

The President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations, or persons.

Post by: wvit1001 on 05 29, 13, 04:41:41:PM
Congress’s power to declare war does not require the use of magic words. Congress need not say “declare” and it need not say “war,” and there may be practical and diplomatic reasons to couch a war declaration in terms more congenial to the regime of “international law,” which favors the language of individual and collective self-defense over the old-fashioned, indecorous language of war. But war it is. More to the point, constitutionally, the 9-18-01 Authorization for Use of Military Force is an exercise of Congress’s legislative power “to declare war.”


Title: Re: Republicans dazed and confused as President Obama continues drone
Post by: darkflower on 05 29, 13, 04:41:41:PM
No, terrorism is a crime. It is no different than any other crime. Victims of terrorism are not any more dead or hurt than victims of other violent crimes.

The "war" view is bs propaganda from a government using it for unlimited power.

There is no war.

The war on terror will never be won until the nations who provide support to the terrorists cease that support!

Failing to remove those pillars of support will ensure a war on terror everlasting!

Wars are between nations. Not between a nation and a criminal organization, or a nation and a type of crime. That would not be a real war and does not justify what happens in real war.

The aumf was itself rubbish.

There is no war. You can not wage war on terrorism so stop trying to use war to justify what is clearly unjustifiable.

Terrorism is a crime. You "fight" it with cops and lawyers, not with armies and drones.

fyi, the victims of drone murders are not given the chance to surrender and are not accused of any crime. They are not terrorists, they are just people that some plutocrat feels like killing that day. No proof of any crime. No charges. So quit blaming the victim.

wvit, logic says you can not declare war on groups. War is for fighting countries, not groups, so you can not declare war on groups.

And nixon declared war on crime. So if the war on terrorism is such a great idea, why not fight all crime that way? What is so freaking special about terrorism? Nobody answers that. Crime is crime, and all crime terrorizes people. All crime is equally an attack on the country.

"treating terrorists as criminals worked fine until 9/11/01.  Then we discovered that Islamofascist terrorists were organized and were not acting alone."

It still worked on 911. Criminals kill people, that does not mean treating them as criminals fails to work. And terrorists are not the only criminals who are organized and not working alone, many criminals work in groups and many are very organized. Mafia, cartels, street gangs, are far more dangerous than islamic terrorists but they are still treated as criminals.

Treating it as war is bad not just for the innocents killed but bad for us too.

"And they don't intentionall target innocent people.  That makes no sense.  Nothing can be gained by trying to kill innocent people.  It is absurd to suggest that anyone would do that."

It is absurd that anyone does it, but it is still true. The drones target innocents. Show me even one conviction for anybody murdered by a drone. Go on, find me the conviction that makes the difference between guilt and innocence. I bet you can not even find one. Much less hundreds for all the hundreds of drone strikes. I on the other hand can show you hundreds of names of little children killed by the drones. So yes, the drones do target and murder innocents. That is fact.

treating terrorism as a war is what bush did when he invaded iraq, A country not connected at all to terrorists, as bush admitted, and occupied iraq on complete lies.  killing terrorists in remote areas with a drone so american soldiers can live is the best option we have.  fuck the terrorists.  they deserve nothing but death, unless they decide to surrender.  they kill more muslims than americans and they are like rabid dogs that must be put down.

Bush On Al Qaeda Not Existing In Iraq Before Invasion: ‘So What?’

Yesterday, after an Iraqi journalist used “[t]wo of the worst insults in Islam” against him, an unfazed President Bush sat down with ABC’s Martha Raddatz for an exit interview in Iraq. When Raddatz asked Bush about his legacy, Bush first boasted about “52 months of uninterrupted job growth.” (There have been 1.9 million jobs lost in 2008 alone.)


Bush then turned to Iraq, and justified the war there by suggesting it had been al Qaeda’s home base. When Raddatz corrected him, Bush dismissively replied, “So what?“:

BUSH: One of the major theaters against al Qaeda turns out to have been Iraq. This is where al Qaeda said they were going to take their stand. This is where al Qaeda was hoping to take–

RADDATZ: But not until after the U.S. invaded.

BUSH: Yeah, that’s right. So what? The point is that al Qaeda said they’re going to take a stand. Well, first of all in the post-9/11 environment Saddam Hussein posed a threat. And then upon removal, al Qaeda decides to take a stand.

sometimes innocents are killed in a crossfire when cops fire at criminals, sometimes innocents get killed when police chase a killer on the highway...NOTHING IS COMPLETELY SAFE AND PERFECT, IDIOT.  we do the best we can...overall, more muslim lives are saved than lost by eliminating these mad dog killers, asshole.  so fuck you. 

treating terrorism as a war is what bush did when he invaded iraq, A country not connected at all to terrorists, as bush admitted, and occupied iraq on complete lies.  killing terrorists in remote areas with a drone so american soldiers can live is the best option we have.  fuck the terrorists.  they deserve nothing but death, unless they decide to surrender.  they kill more muslims than americans and they are like rabid dogs that must be put down.

Bush On Al Qaeda Not Existing In Iraq Before Invasion: ‘So What?’

Yesterday, after an Iraqi journalist used “[t]wo of the worst insults in Islam” against him, an unfazed President Bush sat down with ABC’s Martha Raddatz for an exit interview in Iraq. When Raddatz asked Bush about his legacy, Bush first boasted about “52 months of uninterrupted job growth.” (There have been 1.9 million jobs lost in 2008 alone.)


Bush then turned to Iraq, and justified the war there by suggesting it had been al Qaeda’s home base. When Raddatz corrected him, Bush dismissively replied, “So what?“:

BUSH: One of the major theaters against al Qaeda turns out to have been Iraq. This is where al Qaeda said they were going to take their stand. This is where al Qaeda was hoping to take–

RADDATZ: But not until after the U.S. invaded.

BUSH: Yeah, that’s right. So what? The point is that al Qaeda said they’re going to take a stand. Well, first of all in the post-9/11 environment Saddam Hussein posed a threat. And then upon removal, al Qaeda decides to take a stand.

http://www.policymic.com/articles/16949/predator-drone-strikes-50-civilians-are-killed-for-every-1-terrorist-and-the-cia-only-wants-to-up-drone-warfare

There are estimates as high as 98% (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/17/opinion/17exum.html?_r=1) of drone strike casualties being civilians (50 for every one "suspected terrorist"). The Bureau of Investigative Journalism issued a report detailing how the CIA is deliberately targeting (http://www.salon.com/2012/02/05/u_s_drones_targeting_rescuers_and_mourners/singleton/) those who show up after the sight of an attack, rescuers, and mourners at funerals as a part of a "double-tap" strategy eerily reminiscient of methods used by terrorist groups like Hamas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drone_attacks_in_Pakistan

In March 2013, Ben Emmerson, the United Nations Special Rapporteur (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Special_Rapporteur) led a U.N. team that looked into civilian casualties from the U.S. drone attacks, and stated that the attacks are a violation of the sovereignty of Pakistan. Emmerson said government officials from the country clearly stated Pakistan does not agree to the drone attacks, which is contradicted by U.S. officials


2) The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bureau_of_Investigative_Journalism) estimates the following cumulative statistics about US drone strikes:
[

]
 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drone_attacks_in_Pakistan#cite_note-27)

(As of March 2013)
  • Total strikes: 366
  • Total reported killed: 2,537 - 3,581
  • Civilians reported killed: 411 - 884
  • Children reported killed: 168 - 197
  • Total reported injured: 1,174 - 1,465
  • Strikes under the Bush Administration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidency_of_George_W._Bush): 52
  • Strikes under the Obama Administration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obama_Administration): 314

Real Americans oppose the war on terrorism. Real Americans value liberty and human rights more than security and mistrust government power.

Real Americans realize that foreign policy of the last decades has been about power and has been destructive to liberty and democracy, here and abroad. Real Americans know that power corrupts and realize that means the "most powerful man on earth" is inevitably "the most corrupt man on earth."

Real Americans realize that governments are only trustworthy when they are not trusted, that trusting government inevitably leads to it not being trustworthy. And that includes foreign policy.

Real Americans realize that people who think "that would never happen here" are fools inviting it to happen here.

You people are not Real Americans. You are pretenders.

Obama killed four Americans with drones.  Three of them were not targeted.  It's pathetic when your kill ratio of targeted Americans to untargeted Americans is only 25%.  That is even if you accept the dangerous notion that Obama should be the prosecutor, judge, and jury.  That's even if you ignore the same poor ratio for non-American civilians.  What's wrong with you people?

The Republican party throughout the Bush years has been filled with ignorant jingoists, and still is, but Democrats have no excuse.  All they are are blind followers.  They can't be confused because they don't have a brain in their little drone heads.  Principles?  They have only one -- follow the leader.  The anti-war Democrats are dead, transformed into warmongering lemmings.

To find out what is wrong with both parties look at what they agree on when each has majority power, not what they pretend to disagree on otherwise.

Pointing out the fallacy of the war on terror is out of bounds, whether it is MSNBC or FOX News.

Oz, the un most certainly does not agree.

And fyi, terrorists are just criminals, there are no special rules for them under international law. Post 911 amerika may have made up some idiotic no-mans-land (because the sheeple let plutocrats trick them into something very very stupid) but international law has not been corrupted in that manner. Terrorists are nothing special and claiming "oh it is a terrorist" does not mean you get to ignore international law and human rights and just go around murdering people. Murdering people in other countries just because you claim it is a terrorist is no different than claiming you just bombed a drug dealer. Or a drug addict. You just violated international law. And human rights. And let a president murder on his own say so.

You are approving a president murdering anybody when he feels like it. If he (or another president) feels like murdering you or your family some day, you will have no right to complain about it. The time to complain is NOW. Not wait til it is you.

The lawyer leading a UN drone inquiry has praised a speech by US President Barack Obama as a "significant step towards increased transparency".

Ben Emmerson said Mr Obama had set out more clearly than ever before the legal justifications for targeted killing.

Pakistan, the main focus of the strikes, has reiterated its view that drones are "counter-productive".

Mr Obama pledged to continue strikes, but with tighter oversight of the programme and stricter targeting rules.

Mr Emmerson, a United Nations human rights special rapporteur, launched an inquiry into drones in January, saying their use "represents a real challenge to the framework of international law"

He said in a statement that Mr Obama's speech had broken new ground on a number of issues.

"It sets out more clearly and more authoritatively than ever before the administration's legal justifications for targeted killing, and the constraints that it operates under," he said.

"The publication of the procedural guidelines for the use of force in counter-terrorism operations is a significant step towards increased transparency and accountability."

Ben Emmerson said Mr Obama had set out more clearly than ever before the legal justifications for targeted killing.

What about untargeted killing?  Where's the legal justification for that?  Three Americans and many foreign civilians unjustly killed by Obama and his drones.  There is no justification.  Zero.

And his legal justifications do not coincide with his actions.   The American he targeted and killed was not an imminent threat.  Obama equated him to a sniper on a roof-top firing at people.  The American he targeted and killed was not shooting, harming, nor imminently about to harm someone.  He was suspected of plotting, or so it was purported anyway.  And if we are going to trust Obama to make that determination without the benefit of due process, then we may as well just do away with due process altogether, because, well, we know he is completely worthy of our trust -- and that's that.

The Authorization for Use of Military Force[1] (AUMF) is a joint resolution passed by the United States Congress on September 14, 2001, authorizing the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001. The authorization granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. The AUMF was signed by President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001

Who were these American killed by drones?



Anwar Awlaki was – he was continuously trying to kill people. He helped oversee the 2010 plot to detonate explosive devices on two U.S. bound cargo planes. He was involved in planning to blow up an airliner in 2009. When Farouk Abdulmutallab – the Christmas Day bomber – went to Yemen in 2009, Awlaki hosted him, approved his suicide operation, and helped him tape a martyrdom video to be shown after the attack. His last instructions were to blow up the airplane when it was over American soil. I would have detained and prosecuted Awlaki if we captured him before he carried out a plot. But we couldn’t. And as President, I would have been derelict in my duty had I not authorized the strike that took out Awlaki.


Samir Khan was one of them and was the guy who ran the website where the Boston bombers got the plans for their bombs.

The legality of targeted killing is disputed. Some[
who?
 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Avoid_weasel_words)
]
Israeli and American academics, military personnel, or officials describe targeted killing as legitimate within the context of self-defense, when employed against terrorists or combatants engaged in asymmetrical warfare.
 
BTW:  Poll after poll shows Americans approve of killing terrorists by drone attack by about 80%.

granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those whom he determined "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the September 11th attacks, or who harbored said persons or groups. The AUMF was signed by President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001

The only thing the Republicans are "confused" about is that it not a Republican president doing all the shooting and killing.  The news I have for them is that the so-called "war on terror" is just as much a part of the New World Order as Agenda 21 is.  There is no party line standing in its way.

Anwar, you claim he did things in 2009 and 2010. Was he charged? Was he tried in abstentia? If not, why not? If no trial and conviction, then he was innocent until proven guilty.

Samir, killed over a website? Are you fucking kidding me? WHAT THE FUCK???

The kid, you think it is ok just because his dad was a criminal suspect? Is it ok to kill other children of criminal suspects? Weeks after killing the suspect?

Spare us the "they plot to attack us" bullshit. Every criminal plots to attack us. That does not begin to excuse going around murdering people in cold blood and calling it self defense.

Criminal suspects are not identified enemies and yes it is murder to kill them. And that is what they are doing. All violent criminals are guilty of the same thing terrorists are: plotting to kill us. That does NOT make it ok to murder suspects and everyone around them.

It is also murder to kill people who are simply someplace you think suspicious, without knowing who the heck you are killing, which they also do.

It is also murder to kill first responders and funeral mourners. The government does that too.


Take your warspeak and shove it, there is no war, terrorists are criminals not enemies, it is not self defense to bomb people just because you "think" one or two in a crowd "might" be plotting something. It is cold blooded murder, targeting civilians on purpose, murdering civilians on purpose. It is exactly the same as 911, the only difference is that everyone admits 911 was wrong except a handful of savage thugs, while a whole lot of savage thugs think it ok for the government to murder civilians.

Not going around wrecklessly throwing bombs, hoping to kill a criminal here or there.

darkflower seems to think we should have just gone over to Germany and arrested Hitler instead of killing all those innocent Germans who were merely working for him.

When terrorist suspects are in places we can arrest them they have been arrested by the police and stood trial.  McVeigh, the shek who bombed the World Trade Center, the Fort Hood shooter, ...

But when they are outside an area where the police and military can operate safely then our president is authorized by Congress to do what he deems is needed to stop a threat to our people.

I agree that it is unfortunate that civilians get killed but I would much rather see the terrorist sympathizers killed than more of our soldiers.  And even if you sent soldiers in to arrest these terrorists there would be civilians in danger.  When our soldiers went in to get bin Laden there were 4 others killed in the raid that were not the targets - bin Laden's son, the courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti's brother, and a wife.

Terrorists are not a threat to our people. They are criminals. Nothing more than that.

Ok, right after you tell the victims of all the other violent crimes that they are not as good as your terrorist victims.

And and this, the drone attacks CREATE terrorism in response. Like that Boston bombing, that was because of drones I think. Drones create a whole lot of terrorists.

And yet terrorists are still no big deal. Normal criminals are way more dangerous and a bigger threat.

Police are looking, police are not going around bombing people. Not yet anyway.

And some estimates are that drones have a 2% target, 98% "collateral" kill rate. Way worse than in the bin laden example.

But the point is they CAN arrest anybody. The claim that it is too dangerous is total bullshit. And even if it is too dangerous, then JUST WALK AWAY. You don't HAVE to kill every suspect on the planet. And in fact are better off NOT killing them, way better off.

Killing them does not make you safer, it puts you in danger. And it is morally wrong. What purpose does it serve? It trades their lives, your security, to give the government power. obama is getting power at your expense, as well as the expense of the lives of all his victims that you appear to not care a bit about. He is putting you in danger, everyone in danger. And you defend him. You defend the guy who puts the whole country in danger of more terrorism, a danger you claim to care about. I don't, I say terrorism is no big deal. But you all are so hot about it, yet you support the guy putting you in danger of it. Why?

Boston bombing was partly obama's fault, some of the blame lies with him for the drone attacks that the bombers were reacting to. They are to blame for their own actions, but so is obama. It is his fault. And all of your fault for supporting him.

Terrorism has skyrocketed as a result of the war on terrorism.

So um yes, your war is responsible for creating most of it. Some will always exist. And the best way to deal with that is not treat it as anything special, don't encourage it by giving it special treatment. The war on terrorism is special treatment.

If we did as I say, there would be less terrorism and we would be able to hold our heads high knowing that we live by our values, that our values are not mere propaganda but something that we hold dear and take seriously.

As it is now, those values are in the gutter, exposed as nothing more than pure bs.

If we did as I say, there would be less terrorism and we would be able to hold our heads high knowing that we live by our values, that our values are not mere propaganda but something that we hold dear and take seriously.

In the last five years, the odds of an American being killed in a terrorist attack have been about 1 in 20 million (http://reason.com/archives/2011/09/06/how-scared-of-terrorism-should) (that’s including both domestic attacks and overseas attacks). As the chart above (http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2013/02/daily-chart-7?fsrc=scn/tw/te/dc/dangerofdeath) from the Economist shows, that’s considerably smaller than the risk of dying from many other things, from post-surgery complications to ordinary gun violence to lightning.
That said, terrorist attacks obviously loom much larger in our collective consciousness — not least because they’re designed to horrify. So, understandably, they get much more attention.

March 18, 2003

Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt(lie) that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised(lie). This regime has already used weapons of mass destruction against Iraq's neighbors and against Iraq's people.

The regime has a history of reckless aggression in the Middle East. It has a deep hatred of America and our friends. And it has aided, trained and harbored terrorists, including operatives of al Qaeda. (lie)

The danger is clear: using chemical, biological or, one day, nuclear weapons, obtained with the help of Iraq, the terrorists could fulfill their stated ambitions and kill thousands or hundreds of thousands of innocent people in our country, or any other.

The United States and other nations did nothing to deserve or invite this threat. But we will do everything to defeat it. Instead of drifting along toward tragedy, we will set a course toward safety. Before the day of horror can come, before it is too late to act, this danger will be removed.

The United States of America has the sovereign authority to use force in assuring its own national security(lie, iraq was not a threat to our security). That duty falls to me, as Commander-in-Chief, by the oath I have sworn, by the oath I will keep.

Terrorists and terror states do not reveal these threats with fair notice, in formal declarations - and responding to such enemies only after they have struck first is not self-defense, it is suicide. The security of the world requires disarming Saddam Hussein now.(lie, there was nothing to disarm him of, bitch)

In his March 6, 2003, report to the U.N. Security Council, Hans Blix reported that the declared stocks of anthrax and VX remained unaccounted for. In the last chance given to Iraq by Resolution 1441, Iraq had failed to provide answers. As Blix reported again in May 2003, "little progress was made in the solution of outstanding issues....the long list of proscribed items unaccounted for and as such resulting in unresolved disarmament issues was not shortened either by the inspections or by Iraqi declarations and documentation."



In U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441, the Security Council agreed on a new round of inspections, during which Saddam was to do finally what he had promised to do back in 1991 and ever since: make a clean breast of all his programs, answer all the unanswered questions about his admitted stockpiles of weapons, and fully disarm. Resolution 1441 demanded that, within 30 days, Iraq provide "a currently accurate, full, and complete declaration of all aspects of its programmes to develop chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, and other delivery systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles and dispersal systems designed for use on aircraft, including any holdings and precise locations of such weapons, components, sub-components, stocks of agents, and related material and equipment, the locations and work of its research, development and production facilities, as well as all other chemical, biological, and nuclear programmes, including any which it claims are for purposes not related to weapon production or material."

Iraq did not comply with this demand within 30 days--or, for that matter, within 90.

Why do you think we went into Iraq boz?  You seem confused on history, but then your confused on a lot of things and just goofy wrong on most things.
 
 
 
 
 
My fellow citizens, events in Iraq have now reached the final days of decision. For more than a decade, the United States and other nations have pursued patient and honorable efforts to disarm the Iraqi regime without war. That regime pledged to reveal and destroy all its weapons of mass destruction as a condition for ending the Persian Gulf War in 1991.
 
Since then, the world has engaged in 12 years of diplomacy. We have passed more than a dozen resolutions in the United Nations Security Council. We have sent hundreds of weapons inspectors to oversee the disarmament of Iraq. Our good faith has not been returned.
The Iraqi regime has used diplomacy as a ploy to gain time and advantage. It has uniformly defied Security Council resolutions demanding full disarmament. Over the years, U.N. weapon inspectors have been threatened by Iraqi officials, electronically bugged, and systematically deceived. Peaceful efforts to disarm the Iraqi regime have failed again and again -- because we are not dealing with peaceful men.
 
Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. This regime has already used weapons of mass destruction against Iraq's neighbors and against Iraq's people.

The danger is clear: using chemical, biological or, one day, nuclear weapons, obtained with the help of Iraq, the terrorists could fulfill their stated ambitions and kill thousands or hundreds of thousands of innocent people in our country, or any other.
.
.
.
In the case of Iraq, the Security Council did act, in the early 1990s. Under Resolutions 678 and 687 - both still in effect - the United States and our allies are authorized to use force in ridding Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. This is not a question of authority, it is a question of will.

Halt another potential nuke power in the region, Saddams real goal. A lot of good, IMHO. As a result we have had how many free elections? Are the oil field secure? Is the Threat to Israel reduced?

In October 1998, the U.S. began to shift from containment towards “regime change,” with President Clinton's "Iraq Liberation Act".
 
Amy Goodman:
... many say that, although president Bush led this invasion, that president Clinton laid the groundwork with the sanctions and with the previous bombing of Iraq. You were president Clinton’s U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.... the U.N. sanctions, for example ... led to the deaths of more than a half a million children, not to mention more than a million Iraqis.
 
Governor Richardson:
 
Well, I stand behind the sanctions. I believe that they successfully contained Saddam Hussein. I believe that the sanctions were an instrument of our policy.
 

Amy Goodman:
 
To ask a question that was asked of U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Madeleine Albright, do you think the price was worth it, 500,000 children dead?
 
Governor Richardson: 

Well, I believe our policy was correct, yes

When the scum suckers admit they lie.  Just because they ran away cursing and swearing does not mean the post is over or they proved anything. They certainly did not prove Bush murdered 100000 civilians AS THEY CLAIM ROUTINELY .

Shove a couple of these ongoing posts up their ass to actually prove them out will stop posts just like this one from wvit , that is nothing but a HATE post filled with lies and false accusations by him.

Everyone agrees that over 100,000 civilians died in the war, some claim as many as 1,000,000. And every single one of them is due to bush starting the war, their blood of all the dead is on his hands for his starting that evil war of aggression, a war for which he should be arrested and tried in an international tribunal. Starting wars is the worst crime in the world. Those guilty of that crime should be be charged and punished severely for that evil and despicable crime, the worst crime there is.

Tell someone that believes you, asshole. Not a shred of truth to that rant. That's like claiming nobody would have died on US highways if Bush had not been president. That is Sheer desperation.



Who did the killing?

    37%. US-led forces killed 37% of civilian victims. Mostly terrorists.

At the time Bush term ended, the full count was at max 74,000 on estimates.

You do the math and I will call you both God damned LIARS for claiming 100000 civilians murdered by Bush.

And I will call wvit mentally lame for his off the wall accusations and lies to himself.

If Saddam had stayed in power he would have killed 4 times that many Iraqi civilians.


My statement is just as valid and true as your claim that none would have died if Bush had not invaded.

 You can't prove it, STFU.

It is against our laws and international laws of war for American soldiers to murder civilians.

If all this murdering of civilians by our military occurred, where are the international court cases. Where are OUR military court cases?

HO  and turds like you continue to claim they were MURDERED, you are either LIARS or pressing an UNAmerican Agenda.

No WMD's were found and there was no Saddam - 911 connection....just lies to start a War

That is all conspiracy theory and has been covered extensively in this post. READ IT ASSHOLE>

SUMMARY FOR STUPID PEOPLE


Just because none were found does not mean they were never there. No one claimed a 911 connection but DEMOCRATS.

We did not go into IRAQ FOR WMDS ,,WE WENT IN INSPITE OF THE THREAT OF WMDs.

To top it off, you have to make up your own definition outside the Legal court system to claim no WMDs were  found.

Since the court consider C4 to be defined as a WMD in US court cases.

You have no proof of intent, you have dis-proven talking points and the inability to learn.

Moniell supported the ongoing murder of Iraqis by Saddam and preferred we stayed away to let them be killed that way instead.

The 1991 Persian Gulf War and subsequent U.N. inspections destroyed Iraq's illicit weapons capability and, for the most part, Saddam Hussein did not try to rebuild it, according to an extensive report by the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq that contradicts nearly every prewar assertion made by top administration officials about Iraq.

Charles A. Duelfer, whom the Bush administration chose to complete the U.S. investigation of Iraq's weapons programs, said Hussein's ability to produce nuclear weapons had "progressively decayed" since 1991. Inspectors, he said, found no evidence of "concerted efforts to restart the program."
   
The findings were similar on biological and chemical weapons. While Hussein had long dreamed of developing an arsenal of biological agents, his stockpiles had been destroyed and research stopped years before the United States led the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Duelfer said Hussein hoped someday to resume a chemical weapons effort after U.N. sanctions ended, but had no stocks and had not researched making the weapons for a dozen years.

Duelfer's report, delivered yesterday to two congressional committees, represents the government's most definitive accounting of Hussein's weapons programs, the assumed strength of which the Bush administration presented as a central reason for the war. While previous reports have drawn similar conclusions, Duelfer's assessment went beyond them in depth, detail and level of certainty.

"We were almost all wrong" on Iraq, Duelfer told a Senate panel yesterday.

President Bush, Vice President Cheney and other top administration officials asserted before the U.S. invasion that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear weapons program, had chemical and biological weapons and maintained links to al Qaeda affiliates to whom it might give such weapons to use against the United States.

But after extensive interviews with Hussein and his key lieutenants, Duelfer concluded that Hussein was not motivated by a desire to strike the United States with banned weapons, but wanted them to enhance his image in the Middle East and to deter Iran, against which Iraq had fought a devastating eight-year war. Hussein believed that "WMD helped save the regime multiple times," the report said.

The team also found no evidence of stocks of the smallpox virus, which the administration had claimed it had.

Chemical Weapons

Duelfer's report said that no chemical weapons existed and that there is no evidence of attempts to make such weapons over the past 12 years. Iraq retained dual-use equipment that could be used for such an effort.

"The issue is that he has chemical weapons, and he's used them," Cheney told CNN in March 2002. The National Intelligence Estimate said that "although we have little specific information on Iraq's CW stockpile, Saddam probably has stocked at least 100 metric tons and possibly as much as 500 MT of CW agents -- much of it added in the last year."

One of the reasons the intelligence community feared a chemical weapons arsenal was that U.N. inspectors said Iraq had not fully explained missing chemical agents during the 1990s. The report determined that unanswered questions were almost certainly the result of poor accounting.

Iraq's responses to U.N. inspectors regarding chemical weapons appear to have been truthful, and where incomplete, with differing recollections among former top officials, mostly the result of fading memories of when or how stockpiles were destroyed. Those were the identical reasons Iraq offered to U.N. inspectors before the war.

After 17 months of investigation, the U.S. team was able to find only 30 of 130 scientists identified with Iraq's pre-1991 chemical weapons programs. "None of those interviewed had any knowledge of chemical weapons programs" or knew of anyone involved in such work, according to the report. There was one exception, the reported noted, from a scientist who maintained he was asked to make a chemical agent, but that story was uncorroborated and there was no follow-up.

At the same time, the missile that U.S. military planners had most feared in the run-up to the invasion appears to have vanished. While Bush administration officials had asserted that Hussein had hidden a small arsenal of Scud missiles, Duelfer said interviews and documents suggest Iraq "did not retain such missiles after 1991."

"There was a risk -- a real risk -- that Saddam Hussein would pass weapons or materials or information to terrorist networks," Bush said. "In the world after September 11th, that was a risk we could not afford to take."

Supporters rallied around the administration, which has suffered a string of setbacks recently with revelations that the CIA had warned the White House about the strength of Iraqi insurgents, and from former Iraq administrator L. Paul Bremer, who said this week that the United States should have put more troops in Iraq during the invasion.

Duelfer's report contradicted a number of specific claims administration officials made before the war.

It found, for example, that Iraq's "crash" program in 1991 to build a nuclear weapon before the Persian Gulf War was far from successful, and was nowhere near being months away from producing a weapon, as the administration asserted. Only micrograms of enriched uranium were produced and no weapon design was completed. The CIA and administration officials have said they were surprised by the advanced state of Iraq's pre-1991 nuclear program, which was discovered after the war, and therefore were more prone to overestimate Iraq's capability when solid proof was unavailable.

There also was no evidence that Iraq possessed or was developing a mobile biological weapons production system, an assertion Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and others made before the invasion. The two trailers that were found in early 2003 were "almost certainly designed and built . . . exclusively for the generation of hydrogen" gas.

Duelfer also found no information to support allegations that Iraq sought uranium from Africa or any other country after 1991, as Bush once asserted in a major speech before the invasion. The only two contacts with Niger that were discovered were an invitation to the president of Niger to visit Baghdad, and a visit to Baghdad by a Niger minister in 2001 seeking petroleum products for cash. There was one offer to Iraq of "yellowcake" uranium, and that was from a Ugandan businessman offering uranium from Congo. The deal was turned down, and the Ugandan was told that Baghdad was not interested because of the sanctions.

Nuclear Weapons

Despite the U.S. intelligence judgment that Iraq in 2002 had reconstituted its nuclear weapons program, Duelfer reported that after 1991, Baghdad's nuclear program had "progressively decayed." He added that the Iraq Survey Group investigators had found no evidence "to suggest concerted efforts to restart the program."

There was an attempt to keep nuclear scientists together and two scientists were discovered to have saved documents and technology related to the uranium enrichment program, but they appeared to be the exception.

Although some steps were taken that could have helped restart the nuclear program, using oil-for-food money, Duelfer concluded that his team "uncovered no indication that Iraq had resumed fissile material or nuclear weapons research and development activities since 1991."

Biological Weapons

Duelfer's report is the first U.S. intelligence assessment to state flatly that Iraq had secretly destroyed its biological and chemical weapons stocks in the early 1990s. By 1995, though, and under U.N. pressure, it abandoned its efforts.

The document rules out the possibility that biological or chemical weapons might have been hidden, or perhaps smuggled into another country, and it finds no evidence of secret biological laboratories or ongoing research that could be firmly linked to a weapons program.

Very nice HO, it don't mean shit when you claim is Bush MURDERED 100000 civilians in Iraq.

It does not prove Bush lied or had the Intent to lie. It does not prove that WMDs were the only reason we went into Iraq. It is a small part of the entire picture that you refuse to acknowledged out of shear hate.

Your charges are criminal in nature. Where is your investigation or arrests. You have nothing but blind hate for a good man with honorable intents who did good things for Iraq and the ME.

Saddam would have MURDERED far More given the Mass grave sites found upon invasion.

Because none of it is the answer to prove your lie that Bush MURDERED 100000 civilian in Iraq.

None of what you posted backs it up. It is all about YOUR OPINION ABOUT WMDs, how they are defined in your little word to make the lie fit, your Opinion on Bushs intent and your conspiracy theories prove nada.  Nothing about all the reasons we went into Iraq. They are ignored by you as inconvenient

You harp on WMDs like Clinton said nothing, and Clinton's CIA director was not also Bushs CIA director.

You lie and compound it with bullshit distraction, opinion and foul accusations.

 Now Prove Bush Lied, given the courts definition of WMDs and that he had intent to lie. Those 100000 dead civilians were killed by terrorists, they died with them in civilian clothes. I claim that all 100000 killed were terrorists. You being a arab hate that fact.

no, it is nothing like that.  bush clearly lied.  there is no other conclusion even right wingers can come to.  that is a given.  so, any orders to invade this no-threat, almost defenseless country halfway around the world are automatically immoral and illegal.  so any deaths that occur during this illegal and immoral invasion and occupation can be called murder, because they are the direct result of a lying and immoral decision to invade made by bush.  it is that simple.  it is the same charge that hussein was charged with and finally hung to death by shias in iraq after he was captured.  that he gave illegal orders to his soldiers to use chemical weapons to kill 70 kurds in some town that was revolting against his regime.  same thing for milosevic. bush put all those small time war criminals to shame just by the sheer numbers who died because of his lies.

 Then he committed a prosecutable criminal act.  Since you only have things that need a conclusion drawn, you have nothing but circumstantial evidence that is inadmissible anywhere. Take your supposed proof to the Attorney General for prosecution. We are tired of fking hearing it because it is a LIE.

 Strange that the Democrats when they had the Majority in Both houses did not even have a hearing on your charges and continue to vote in favor of funding over and over.

Where is your investigation , charges and trial?

No, HO, you have nothing but hate , lies about our brave heroes, a protective defense of the enemy, and an undeserved superior attitude for someone that can't write a sentence.

The only thing they had left was WMDs, the last straw to grasp. But they still got nothing. The man is free and living in Texas doing the good life, and shit like HO is crying daily, stuck on stupid spreading opinion that are made up lies.
