    Why does the news report them as "German nationals" and not Jihad Facist Terrorists who just immigrated to Germany so they could terrorize the free world?

    Duke, you make some good points. I especially appreciated your "Arizona gov. mansion" analogy. But I kinda draw the line when you link war with a particular political party. Allow me to illustrate: what was the bloodiest year for US in history? (in terms of American lives lost at war) No, none of the civil war years made the cut. 1918? Not even close. 1943? Still way off but getting warm. Korean war, Viet-nam, no annnnnnnd NO! 1998 is the correct answer Duke. Over 300 armed conflicts that year with many of them being armed by Uncle Sam.....both sides in many instances. We, as a nation export war for profit. Hence the flag-waving rally cry "let's get 'em before they get here" because the profit margin goes wayyyyy down into the negative during home wars.. Just sayin'

    It was a possible drone that possibally killed some possible germans that possiblly wanted to kill Americans. Keep firing and while we are at it just pull our troops out. The folks have been fighting since Moby Dick was a minnow! They surley weed each other out and this war will be over in say a thousand years

    Possibly they were Germans disguised when trvelling abroad because the terror threat level had been raised?

    I don't mean to put All conflicts at the heel of one party!
    During clinton's reign he built more prison than any other president before him,so I'm no fanatic for people just because they have D next to their names!
    As far as war,
    If the republicans get control there will be war with Iran first,then there will be war on all social programs that don't benefit the rich.
    The word War is used by one party as a scare tactic for votes!
