11. nothing to see here, move along...
Just ignore it and it'll go away! After all, if the "Muslim world" doesn't actually SEE the photos, then it never happened, right?

Not like we're already putting American soldiers at risk by invading a country that we have no business in. As if the entire world (except maybe Tony Blair) doesn't already hate America .... but Mr. Bush, it's not for "our freedoms" ... you f*cktard, it's because we are the bully of the world who just wants to steal everyone else's lunch money.
