1. Maybe if we resurrect Malcolm X...
but then again, would he be considered a politico? No one like him with the balls to do it, in my estimation

8. Wow... I was right
I hadn't seen his statement but here it is:

"We argued, as did the security services in this country, that the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq would increase the threat of terrorist attack in Britain. Tragically Londoners have now paid the price of the Government ignoring such warnings."

7. An in-depth investigation by senior leaders in Al-Qaeda reveals
that the London bombings have been determined to be
"the unauthorized activities of a few rotten pomegranates"
and that no upper echelon leaders were aware of, nor did they order, the attacks.
Just a theory.

10. Hell no. That would be unpatriotic.
It is not fashionable to look for the root causes of destructive
ideology. It is only fashionable to fall lock step in behind the
morally and intellectually challenged nutjob who got us into a
war against terrorism by terrorizing a country who never attacked
us.

No, we will never accept that the imbecile now sitting in the
White House is the face of the US to the rest of the world.

We have accepted and fostered blind allegiance to someone who is
the epitome of unearned privilege and mental incompetence as the
leader of our hopelessly dumbed down nation.

Sorry for the depressing thoughts but I have no hope of our
country accepting that we have indeed reaped what we have sown
with our arrogance and apathy. Americans have been conditioned to
not accept responsibility for our government's actions. Now we
have the most corrupt, unaccountable government in our history and
people refuse to question it. I am talking about the rest of the
citizens of this country who actually voted for this moran thinking
he was up to the most difficult job on the planet.


Our only hope is to reap what we individually sow by never giving
in to such stupidity and ignorance and fighting in every way
possible for the minds and hearts of our people on a national
and individual level.

13. Why do you hate America?
I must hate it too. I mean, the Christian edict of responsibility (amongst many others) surely doesn't apply to the globalized corporations who feel they're free to do whatever they want, whereever they want, whenever they want to.

We're both apologists for the terrorists. :sarcasm:

And those who call us apologists won't ever understand that. They are hypocrites to their own religion. They are bullies who PROVOKE terror. Yet the bully-apologists seem to think it's OKAY for people to behave like bullies with no consequences.
