"Which candidate is more likely to appease them?"
Of course, neither candidate. But relative on their hate meter, GW ranks above any other American in the wide world.
We liberals will not duck the fact that the first attempt to take out the World Trade center (which of the two towers??) occured under the Clinton watch.
By logical extension, then (humor follows) we should not re-elect Clinton to appease terrorists.
Frankly, in seriousness, it is certain that we will be hit again no matter which man takes the helm. But logic also suggests that the likelihood of a successful catastrophic attack is seismically linked to who gets to palm the bible in public next January.
Me, the Great Mento (grin) predicts the pundits have a talking point: we are liable to see our Madrid Train Station murde rampage very shortly before the Nov. election. And the carnage or disruption will be immense as those insane zealots can accomplish. And oh so easy it will be for 'em! Why, I myself could find enough white skinned kooks and marginalized non-arabic trash willing to do these dastardly deeds. Evil walks among us. Many prospects no doubt scan this forum! (bad humor follows, beware)
My proposed contribution to Vaterl...oops, I mean Homeland Security (mischievous grin) is that we plant a post on this forum "SpeakEasy", alleging a call for Richard Reed-looking (non arab looking) "mohamedean patriots" to enlist in "our" (us liberals') secret campaign to destablize moral america.
Now please, no one kick me for being an imp. It is my calling. Not a higher calling, it's just what I do, and it is more socially acceptable my haters will admit, than dealing drugs at the elementary schools.
OK who should bait the Terorist Trap and become an underground hero to this group? NOT I. I am too much the coward! Them terrorists are mean and have long sharp knives to stick into jokesters and unpatriotic floppadoodlers. PS: put the other "F" word in place of "flop" and you get one of my favorite self-coined neologisms: to describe useless antics of much show and style, but little substance. That's me. And thats the clarion call of the present, in-session historical convention. Floppadoodle but not flop, the other F word that dare not speak its name.
MOSCOW ? Attackers wearing homicide-bomb belts seized a Russian school in a region bordering Chechnya on Wednesday, taking hostage about 400 people ? half of them children ? and threatening to blow up the building. Eight people were killed, a Russian news agency reported...
The latest violence also appears to be timed around last Sunday's presidential elections in Chechnya, a Kremlin-backed move aimed at undermining support for the insurgents by establishing a modicum of civil order in the war-shattered republic. The previous Chechen president, Akhmad Kadyrov, was killed along with more than 20 others in a bombing on May 9...
It's one thing to kidnap adult hostages with a threat to behead them but to take a whole school of children really shows the extent to which the muslim extremists are willing to stoop to achieve their agenda. Is America prepared for these tactics? Which candidate is more likely to appease them? This is a real threat that's headed our way. This is an issue I think everyone should really think about before they choose a candidate this election cycle. What do you think?
