    Somehow I smell the makings of a cover-up for this Gibbs dude. They'll do almost anything to sugarcoat NATO who are no more the heroes than the Russians were the villains over there.

    i am a master at nothing and have nothing to do with any man god or pharisee. And neither do the Jews have anything to do with any man god. Also YOU are the hypocrite because your love is only for the evil and those who do evil! You have no love for anyone except those YOU believe are the true followers of God, BUT actually do not do the WILL of GOD!

    I do not agree with the death penalty, but would it not be hypocritical if the US did not do the same to these men as Texas did to the man who murdered Muslims here in the US? i SAID before that to kill in the sake of justice is the same as the terrorists and many nations DO! BUT as for self defense, to KILL EVIL IS JUSTIFIED AS GOD HATES EVIL! AND FOR ANY MUSLIM OR FOR THAT MATTER ANYONE WHO THINK THE US IS EVIL BETTER TAKE A HARD LOOK, NOT ONLY AT THEMSELVES, BUT AT WHAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS DONE FOR THE WORLD!
