Once again Kerry brushed Bengazi under the rug...and turned it back around to “international” responsibility for chemical weapons.....and that’s where it was left.

Although what Duncan said was right on...it didn’t touch Kerry...he is hell bent on going to war...not because of chemical weapons...but because the Saudi’s want Syria and us to do the heavy lifting.

It doesn’t matter now...the vote was in before this started....it was just as was said...

....”We play constitutional theater for the president”.

The ‘facts’ of what Muslims believe, practice, and their behavior speak otherwise.

That was my point observing it up close and personal. Current day Arabs and Muslims are generally not great warriors willing to put their lives on the line. Israel has shown that time and again. And our recent experience in Iraq has demonstrated that as well. The Mother of all Battles and all the bravado of Baghdad Bob turned out to be a myth.

The Turks and to a certain extent the Afghans are the only real warriors. The rest prefer flight to fight.

If push comes to shove you’ll see another side....as we have seen right here in the US. And that side lays just below the surface if they are raised on the Quran.

They don’t stop their own from these brutal killings..and do little in their country’s to oppose it. So no...the risk is far too great to even consider any of them as you speak of..and I’m not about ready to go along to get along on that issue.

It’s a whole nother story as England is learning, when they are in another country....and any country they entrench themselves in.

So please...don’t try to soft sell the Muslims to me Kabar...I’ve seen what they are capable of....in war and otherwise. Until they take a complete stand against their own thugs..not buying it.

...”That was my point observing it up close and personal”...

There are about 3 million Muslims in the US. We bring in about 100,000 a year thru immigration.

I have no idea what you are referring to re my posts. As I said, we will just agree to disagree. My observations are based on living 9 years in Muslim countries and traveling to many more.

Living with and among Muslims for 9 years is MORE than ‘observing’.....Again that’s a lot of time to integrate and adapt ones culture as their own ...consciously or not. Your posts attest to the fact of your acceptance of their culture and lifestyle and how they see the world.

We differ because I do not accept the culture as one I care to affiliate with in any way...regardless of the picture you make from your experiences of living ‘among them’.

I do not want to see their religion, beliefs nor their indoctrination be force fed to our children..nor their habits and twisted thinking...nor subject the next generations to the idea they must accept their “special status” in our society.

Let them go to their nations and change their country...instead of coming here and changin mine to adapt to them.....but according to you they are fine with how it is. So they can all return to these wonderful familys and communities you speak so highly of.....

I will guarantee you that there will be no outcry from the Muslims when the radicals here march on our streets...they are silent now and will be then. They will NOT oppose their own radical elements.
