    Ok we need to go.. I love how violence always spikes when we start to withdraw troops. Kind of like an abusive lover that flails themselves on your car and starts crying for you not to go after she just beat the crap out of your car with various items. See ya Afghan people. The best offense is a good defense in this case.

      @Gary: You can't win. The best way to win is to not play. Be the good guy and let the rest follow their false prophets to hades.

    Hi everyone this is Cesar. I'm changing my name to avoid detection by my various trolls. Truth be told my trolls are really my many personalities that I bounce back and forth on different windows of the same computer. I can actually have pretty coherent conversations into the late hours while everyone else is asleep.. I'd find a job or a woman, but that's beneath me.

    We can win. All we need to do is nuke and blast those smelly rag head b@s tards. But that would be politically incorrect.

      I guess it comes down to what is seattle worth to you?

      It's called balance of power. The same thing that keeps north korea and china from nuking who they want to, keeps us from nuking anyone we haven't already nuked..

      Wrong, Helen. It's you who posts all these "politically correct" messages of yours while those of us who don't hate those "rag head b^$t^r$" as you call them and who are against this obscene war are the most politically "in"-correct here. I just hope that those "rag heads" win as it's their right to do so!!!

      Please Helen, just exactly where did you learn how to hate like that and who exactly taught you to feel that way? All I want to say to you is all that hatred will sooner or later consume you bigtime!!!

    They said these are the same guys that killed an 80 year old man, after a decade long hunt on trillions spent- and how many civilians (women and children) ? – always difficult to accomplish that?

    Condolences to the families of those that were killed.
    My sympathy to you all.

    @Fakey:
    Who, exactly, taught you to steal names all the time? I see you stole another one.
    You have valid points; it's too bad you can't post you valid point under a name that *you* made up, instead of stealing others.
    I wonder what pathology is behind that...other than the obvious one of being a liar.

    For @ Helen, I just feel sorry & advise this person to seek help for her own sake.

    Guys the decline that had set in for our country (once termed as the greatest) with our invasion of Iraq, seems to have accelerated, thanks to the mind set ( more or less like @ Helen's) that had invaded Washington then & continues to dominate our politics today. Thriving on propaganda, hate & fear.
    We are teetering on the edge of financial bankruptcy, our influence worldwide has sharply declined, whole regions & people have turned hostile to us, We have been able to gain nothing from these senseless wars of our making except to lose precious lives & national treasure.
    But those up on the Hill & we the American public have not learned to learn our lessons and continue plodding blindly on the same path. We cannot blame just the politicians, we are in it with them for allowing to let them get away with all this.
    Where is our collective voice that " Enough is enough" ?

    @Fakey:

    So...those soldiers deserved to die? Is *that* what you're saying?
    All the lives that have been lost are worthless? Is *that* what you're saying?
    Now before you try and turn this around, I am not a member of the Tea Party, I am against the war but support the troops, and I don't lie, not even behind the protection on anonymity of the internet.
    What say you?
