    Two months before 911, BP and Mobile Oil made a deal with Russia to devolope oil in the region north of Iraqs northern border. Two weeks later russian forces envaded Chechnia. A month and a half later 911 happened, sponsered by Saudi Arabia and carried out by Saudis, but we Attack Afghanistan which sits on the other end of the proposed oil developement region. If this is beginning to sound stinky it is because it is. Americans have been conned by their leaders, but we are beginning to catch on. And in response to Tired there is one religion that has not killed anyone, Sabbath keeping Christians!

    So far all the news that I have read and watched tried to cover only one side of the story, we can go into Pakistan or Afganistan and they will call American troops as murderers and here we call them the same. Single point is that we are all killing each other with no end to it. This whole world is in a Catch 22 situation. if you dont attack these people who are using religion as an excuse to scare and murder people they will spread, if we do kill them they get ammunition to get more (brainless) people on there side. Every religion in this world has had a time in its history when extremism took hold of the masses, only way to make things better is to educate the individual in their own religion and make them understand that killing and brutal punishment is not what god teaches and never has. We have changed the meaning of our holy books to suit our individual needs and as a result today innocent people die because they happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

      You have to fight for every in if You want to win the War!!! Until the Enemy gives up You just keep on going... If Bush Sr would have done that in Desert Storm... We would have been out of all 3 wars already!!! 9/11 Would never have happen!!!

    " Hey look" thats how we skate, stop worrying about your family I killed. Hey I even forgotten, I got your mother's hand in my locker in washington dc(millitary complex). Keep on skating while I am fixing my mulfunctioning m16 and it is good in killing woman and children since they are non moving targets.

    Take this skateboard with you and everytime you miss your mom and dad that I killed; just skate. Killing your parents was the best I can do so that I can be called a hero at home(USA). You know only Israelis and americans are humanbeen, the rest are flies. Thats a reason no matter how many we can kill, our gavernment wil not say anything. Look what we did in Vietnam, Iraq and check what we are doing in PK and AFG. Our target is to kill millions and we have even design a civillian killing machines called Drones, you see these drones are good in killing mass of civillians. Do you disagree? look how many we have killed since last month not including those who were not reported. Remember this are not humanbeen but flies because they not Americans and Israelis.

      "Ok, here's the plan... we blow up some innocent people right... then, when we're being retaliated against we'll run into a school, hospital or a mosque (because really we're all just cowards deep down) there we can use the innocent women & children as human shields. When they get smoked THEN we can report how the U.S. is mercilessly killing innocent women & children. Everybody got it? Ready... BREAK!"

    I think a few of these countries like Pakistan and Afganistan need to shed some their own blood in a civil war like the USA did when the south wanted to have their own form of government that allowed slavery. When radicals have their own laws within a country the established government needs to lay down the law and force them to follow the laws of the land. We did it and it was necessary. You can't turn your back on problems for long or they get out of hand like they are today. I may be a Federalist, but someone must take charge and have a fair and equally applied law in their country. You can't have Sharia law in one area and government law in another area. Time to pay up!

      I hope Janet gleans information on how to deal with the attacks on our own soil in our own ballot boxes...and campaigns. Crazy that people can't know who is funding the campaigns. It's wrong and should be stopped.

    Israel has enough problems protecting Their Boarders!!! How do You expect Them to fight in Afghanistan too??? Maybe sent Their People to train the Police and Military would make more sense!!!

      I suppose I am the only one who sees a problem with sending Israeli's to train Afghans. You realize the hatred between Muslims and Israeli's? That's like oil and water times a billion.

      If that were the case, we should be attacking Saudi Arabia and Israel, because they were the ones who made the plans, to attack the World Trade Center. I can't believe, that anyone would want to make a whole Country suffer, because of ignorant people, who believe the propaganda put out by "main stream media". They are not doing a good job of covering "the war", excuse me..."The Invasion", so we just close our eyes. Bye, bye...until a "big surprise" You will never be able to control the "Afgani people" or what goes on in that whole region. There will be a Nuclear War that will start in Pakistan this year. Happy New Year

    I don't know why we are sending our people over there. We can't secure our own border. We should have sent Israel's border security people over, they at least know what they are doing.
