    Al Queda flag being flown in Benghazi Courthouse. Threats issued to reporter.

    This may be a bad turn.

    Is that a genuine concern or a possible campaign issue against Obama?

    I honestly don't see this as a big deal.


    We all know the US will not allow al queda into Libya...so why worry? If they're there, we'll get em and I'd be psyched to see that happen.

    But don't send in troops. Just kill them in the dark of night "black-ops" style...

    And if we kill a few hundred women and children, who cares.. kill them all, sort them out later.

    Collateral damage is a way of life in this day and age.

    Do it the way Mossad does. Do it one by one without collateral damage. Would be ok with that?

    Of course I realize this IP. But I'm STILL not surprised they'd let al queda in, are you?

    The reason I said "no big deal" was kinda tongue in cheek as in "we'll still eliminate them with or without Libya's permission"...and if they are truly encamped in Libya, I'm sure we'll get 'em.

    Since Iran-Contra i am not too surprised by anything anymore. Gadaffi needed to go yes. However much of the uprising violence attributed to him was actually Al-Qaeda drumming up support. Bush working in concert with terrorists would not surprise me much ... but Obama? Seriously I question how much power and knowledge our President has anymore. This has been a theme of mine lately. Also - to briefly hijack - too many people have been drawn into this OWS scene. This also is a huge fabrication and the people behind it are just setting the table for now. USA working with AQ, USA and a new world bank, USA and the UN ... some amazing stuff all being set up for now and to be tied together in the next 20 - 25 years. Democracy across the Middle East and Africa needs to be in place first and that's the part being played out now.

    Usually I am the resident skeptic, but in that role you are connecting too many dots here.. do not see how you connect OWS...

    Overthrowing governments has been the method that the US has chosen as long as I can remember.. some historians argue as much as 100 years, but interestingly enough it is not about establishing democracy or ridding a country from an oppressive regime, but more about accessing a natural resource..

    Unfortunately, what is developing across the Middle East (including Iraq) is not true democracy. What you are getting is the tyranny of the majority. They are voting in theocracies. True democracy would first build in something like our Bill of Rights to protect basic rights, minority populations and women in particular.

    This is the system our government prefers ... we're helping them

    ... it's tragic. We were better off with Saddam and Gadaffi ... maybe even Assad. :bricks:

    These governments are preferable because they are weak compared to us - we can deal with them.

    We sell the American public on spreading democracy and human rights ... insert barf bag here.
