Also...I've been more than an avid protector of america on this forum. do a search for my posts in this forum..and read them

No, it is not merely because you value their lives over the lives of your fellow Americans.
Youve gone on and on about how wonderful we all have it in America, and talked about the suffering of people in other countries, but hey, if its an American...pfft! Who cares???
If that is your attitude, then you may indeed love the government of your country, but you sure dont love its people. Its much more important to care about the people than the government that supposedly runs this place. You really need to become a politician. They dont care about the people, either...
And as for having some fun at the expense of the military...I said it once and i'll say it again. THAT IS NOT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!!!! You keep going on and on about how its your jokes that make me raging mad at you, but thats not what does it. *sighs in frustration*

let's just say I had a less than spectacular performance on the pull up bar

They told me I kicked ass on the ASVAB Test in high school, and that I would be well-suited for a career in the military.

Not everybody performs the same at everything. They could have given you conditioning time to work that out. Anyways, sorry about that

It is this very belief, that "we elect what we are", that politicians are just like you and me, that make these conspiracy theories seem that much more unbelievable to me. They do sin, they do look out for their own careers and bankrolls, just like you and me. But would you murder thousands of people in the hopes that it would be economically beneficial for you? Would you do it to "ensure your place in history?" Could you get thousands of your co-workers to agree to help you do it? For me the answers are all "no." I would guess they are for most of you too. We are people who wouldn't do that. Like Dano said, we elect what we are.

Its no secret that the best thing for a country's morale and economy is a good ol fashioned war. It is also no secret that if your popularity as leader is flagging, there is no better way to rally your citizens than by engaging a common enemy in battle.

It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success...

Thank you, Spiral Staircase. I was just getting ready to post something like this.

I am 99.9% sure that Congress had no knowledge of the September 11th attacks prior to the events themselves. Some conspiracy theories may have grounds in reality, but I think most are way off the mark.

That's a pretty harsh generalization.

Personally, I don't read any posts in which Arun V shows contempt for the American people or its military. In fact, I have read posts in which he had kinds word to say about both.
Miss McPhisto, I'm still waiting for an answer to my question - prior knowledge of 9/11 was "widely reported" by whom?
