Reality Check

Never Forget.

I see you continue to hype fears and sensationalism.

I'll bet the Al Qaeda leadership love it when you post images like these to scare the American people.

Yes, the images are dramatic and part of our history and should not be suppressed. Please be careful not to help them with their objective of creating fear and panic in the western world. These extremist actions of killing and destruction are being carried out a very small group of extremist that rely on folks like you to help spread the fear.

oatz said...

Wow! Liberal POV words can not express how you have lost yourself on the "Reality Check" message here. Being ready and prepared to defend all Americans against apathy is not fanning the flames of "Fear and Sensationalim".

Liberal POV said...

Oatz

Terrorism only works if massive fear can be generated, please don't help with that objective.

Do your own part and say F__K You we will keep out Humanity, Our Liberty, Our Justice and our Civilized World.

We don't win by becoming them.

These photos are dramatic, however more dramatic are those of the people hurtling down. Those images are fried in my mind.

I should think a Liberal Pov would be rendered mute by the scenes.

Sarkazein said...

This was done with box cutter knives as the weapon and by people claiming "in the name of Allah", not massive formations of tactical air strikes and invasion.
How the Left can say there is a defined police strategy to fight this evil, without trying previously untried methods, is foolishness at best and certainly malfeasance.

Liberal POV said...

Blogger

Nothing I have said minimizes the tradegy of that day, but we must not use that memory devide peaceful Muslims and the Christian world.
We must revenges contained and not play into the Al Qaeda stradegy.
This blog and much of the media has made this tradegy even more effective for Al Qeada by spreading fear. Your doing there job for them.

oatz said...

Liberal POV all those peaceful Muslims taking to the streets in protest of terrorists is heartwarming. Watching Muslim brothers throw out Osama and Al Queda really warms my heart. Kinda of like Obama lending support to the protesters in Iran fighting for Freedom and Democracy, it does the body and soul good to see Hope and Change in action.

Reader said...

As I was watching TV that morning and saw the second plane hit, my heart stopped for a few seconds. The feelings I experienced that day, I've never forgotten and hope I don't have to experience ever again.

These pictures reflect the truth and thank you for reminding us HD.

"As I was watching TV that morning and saw the second plane hit, my heart stopped for a few seconds. The feelings I experienced that day, I've never forgotten and hope I don't have to experience ever again."

I'm not trying to down play that natural response but remember that's is exactly the fear, rage and pain Al Qeada wanted. We have been playing their game for to long.

We must isolate Al Qeada in their own world with their own people. The War in Iraq united much of the Muslim world against the United States as well as much of the non Muslim world.
Why do you and others have so much trouble seeing you response so for is the response they desire.

Mike D. said...

Liberal POV,

The way you define terrorism is not how al'Qaeda describes their actions. To them, they are soldiers in a holy war.

Your strategy of pretending nothing happened might work if al'Qaeda subscribed to your definition of their behavior, but they do not.

I am, however, glad to see that the strategy of the left has become more complex. Before, it was simply 'The Golden Rule', but now it is pretending nothing happened, and 'The Golden Rule'.

Liberal POV said...

Mike

You have a few thousand extremist with No Country, no airforce, no navy, no CIA, No space program, little computer science, limited financial support threating the entire western world?
Stop being afraid!
Yes they have the ability to kill some people and do some property damage, but YOU people are GIVING them far MORE power than they woulds other wise have. Don't sell fear for them!

Liberal POV said...

Good Christian people and Good Jewish People

"I am, however, glad to see that the strategy of the left has become more complex. Before, it was simply 'The Golden Rule', but now it is pretending nothing happened, and 'The Golden Rule'." Mike D

Strange how those that claim so much religion want to make light of the"Golden Rule" the foundation of all religion and civilization itself.

Who amoung you still believe in the goldern rule?

Sarkazein said...

Do unto others as the terrorists would do to you?

Sarkazein said...

Go back and look at the 9/11 pictures, and then go back and look at your comment "You have a few thousand extremist with No Country, no airforce, no navy, no CIA, No space program, little computer science, limited financial support threating the entire western world?" and ask yourself what the &#@& are you talking about?

Mike D. said...

Liberal POV,

Allowing Sharia law to trump local law, that is giving them power!

Firing missiles into their training camps is not giving them power. It's killing them.

Professor Johnny Rico said...

Liberal Socialist Sheep POV:

Again, for the hundredth time (socialists are deaf and dumb),you are the reason terrorists have power. They don't need a CIA, Army, institutionalization, etc. when they can't use those resources. We could certainly win the war on both fronts in a couple of months, however political correctness born of do gooder liberals such as yourself is the bane of victory.

The US will never, ever win a war again with idiots like you having any type of input. You see precision strikes will never win a war. They never have, ever. A precision strike is political correctness pure and simple. The blood of 4 thousand soldiers who died needlessly is on the hands of liberals like yourself.

Taking Iraq and Afghanistan by a true all out war is the only way to win. It wouldn't be hard to do is the good part. Alas, this is just wishful thinking on my part because the infection (liberals) has spread to nearly every part of society. Good job on killing all those American soldiers - I wonder if it feels as good to you as when you spit on those returning Viet Nam Vets?

Lib,

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -Edmund Burke

Liberal POV said...

HD

" Do nothing"

That's not at all what I'm saying. I',m say we don't execute Al Qeada's plan as we did during the early Bush years while Rumsfelt and Cheney were in charge.
Those blunders cost cost thousands of American and Iraqi lives. Americans are still dying from those mistakes.

Major Matthew Alexander has it right.

"Alexander, who writes under that pseudonym for security purposes, first voiced this opinion in a WaPo Op-Ed last fall entitled, “I’m Still Tortured by What I Saw in Iraq.” His experience has become widely regarded as proof Cheney’s interrogation policy was not only morally bankrupt, but endangered thousands of Americans serving in Iraq as well. Last Sunday on “Meet the Press,” Sen. Richard Durbin cited Alexander specifically when asserting that half of the detained al-Qaeda suspects in Iraq had been “recruited and were fighting, trying to kill Americans because of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.”

guy faulkes said...

POV is a traitor. He has the right to be one as long as he is only voicing an opinion. The day he contributes money or physically helps his terrorist heroes is the day he becomes a traitor that is also an enemy combatant. Hanging or being stood before a wall with a cigarette and and a blind fold is the proper response to either of the later actions (if he were to take them).

By supporting terrorists and terrorism, POV encourages and expands the efforts of these swine. He IS responsible for the deaths of our soldiers and the innocent civilians in all countries that result from the terrorist acts he encourages.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

I see you continue the slanderous lies when faced with logic, facts, and data you have no answers to debate with.

You continue to show yourself a small, dishonest, lying old fart.

Reader said...

I take back my previous comment. Lib, you couldn't make anyone but a terrorist a good friend. It feels good not knowing your true identity.

Anonymous said...

POV, spoken like the traitor you are.

Liberal POV said...

Johnny, Mike, Guy and Sark

You boys and girls think you have the answer to winning against Al Qaeda extremist by using extreme measures.

You want genocide of all Muslims?
I don't think you will actually phrase it that way but you want a much bloodier war without regard to non Al Qaeda lives.

You want to return to human rights abuse and a break down of military discipline with regard to treatment of Iraqi and Afghanistan people.

You want to inflame 100% of the world's Muslim population which makes up 20% of the people on earth.
Most of those dying at the hands of Al Qaeda are in fact Muslim.
Why would you not want to form an alliance with as much of the Muslim world as possible and Isolate Al Qaeda?
Which will result is the least amount of Blood shed?

Liberal POV said...

Reader

Do you have an argument as to why human rights abuse, torture, indiscriminate killing in the Middle East will create a safer world?

Do ever rethink an issue or just stay the course to hell?

Honest Debate said...

Lib,

You've lost your soul and no one seems interested in helping you find it. It's futile.

Liberal POV said...

HD

Do you have an argument addressing anything I have posted?

Do you oppose isolating Al Qeada in their own world with their own people?

Do You oppose keeping our Humanity, Our Liberty, Our Justice and our Civilized World?

Why do you and others have so much trouble seeing your response so for is the response Al Qaeda desires?

Do you think Major Matthew Alexander has it wrong? http://bravenewfilms.org/blog/?p=70924

Do you think more blood shed will create a safer world?

Do you think we can kill all the terrorist when we don't know who they are?

You have folks like Guy, Sark and Reader who want to acuse anyone not supporting the Cheney human rights abuse as a terrorist. How many people do you think will fall into that catagory?

What do you think Al Qaeda's response was of seeing these images spread across world media this week 9 years after 911?

Want to keep the debate honest?

guy faulkes said...

POV, your support for terrorism is well documented. Your comments about Cheney are only a small part of it. Can you not realize you crossed the line a long time ago? Why do you think so many hold the opinions of you that they do?

As I said before, you have a right to your traitorous opinions as long as you do not physically or financially support your terrorist heroes that are at war with this country.

This is the difference between us. I concede your right to an opinion. You do not do the same to those that disagree with you (the vast majority of the citizens of this country).

Liberal POV said...

Guy

"POV, your support for terrorism is well documented.

Once again you lie to cover another lie.

Post what you say is that well documented if it's so well documented.

You continue to prove yourself a liar. You could have apologized and not looked like the fool you do now.

Liberal Socialist Sheep said:

"winning against Al Qaeda extremist by using extreme measures"

No, extreme measure are what you THINK the argument is about, idiot. What are extreme measures, and how do you know they are extreme? What is your frame of reference?

We are talking about winning a war and saving American soldiers. What is extreme about that? Again, it is political correctness (this time in the form of extreme measures) that kills Americans.

You feel more for the Muslim extremists than you do for your own soldiers!! Amazing. Again, I wonder what gives you more joy - seeing 4 thousand dead soldiers or spitting on returning American Vietnam vetrans?

Do you feel the firebombing of Tokyo and Dresden Germany were extreme measures? If so then I guess the 1 million American deaths it would have taken to defeat Imperialist Japan by conventional means were not extreme? Judging by your non-reaction to 4 thousand dead Americans due to political correctness advocated by liberals such as yourself, then what is another 996,000 lives if they are ONLY AMERICANS.

Your parents (if you knew them) must have been some real pieces of work to produce devil spawn such as yourself. Please tell me you figured out how to reproduce and have kids!

And yes, you are a traitor.

Once again you lie to cover another lie.


You continue to lie because you can't support your myths with facts or answer the hard question?

" Airplanes!"

Al Qeada Lives on Airplanes? Muslims Live on Airplanes?

You, Guy and HD want to make it easy for Al Qaeda to recruit?

Honest Debate said...

"Why do you and others have so much trouble seeing your response so for is the response Al Qaeda desires?" LiberalPOV

I assume you mean they desire being killed in large numbers. That's only because they think they've got 72 virgins waiting on the other side.

No POV, as in they can get on airplanes and come over here or any other place.
OR, are you planning another GITMO to keep them isolated in their own world with their own people, OR are you relying on Obama to talk them into staying in their own world?

Liberal POV said...

Sark

Do you know what THEY look like or have their Identity? Do you plan on killing all of THEM not knowing what THEY look like or who THEY are?

You have far more danger from a drunk driver. Stop being afraid they have no airforce, no navy, no armor and no country. Fear is their only weapon Don't help them with fear.

Most will have to be convinced we are not THEIR enemy.

Now can you answer the rest?

Do You oppose keeping our Humanity, Our Liberty, Our Justice and our Civilized World?

Well, they look Middle Eastern, and they sound like you.

Sarkazein said...

But POV, I am anxious to hear your plans for "isolating Al Qeada in their own world with their own people?"

Are you thinking of AlQeada herders, putting them in time out, restriction, put ankle monitors on them, make a big AlQaeda building and call it OMTIG, or just HOPING they will stay isolated amongst their own, or will you bring back segregation...?

Liberal POV said...

Sark

We don't do as you and other conservatives want by helpping with only weapon they have and that's fear delivered by an extremist.

The current miltiary leadership as decribed by Major Matthew Alexander has it right .

http://bravenewfilms.org/blog/?p=70924

guy faulkes said...

POV, your terrorist heroes can only be stopped by making what happens to them so unacceptable to them that they will not risk the terrorist acts yous support.

I personally think killing them with some kind of swine byproduct and burying them with a hog might be effective. It worked for Black Jack Pershing. Saturation bombing of terrorist strongholds would also be effective. It would not be long until these strongholds would not be allowed by the local populace.

Sarkazein said...

POV- So you can't identify anything realistic in your comment either.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

"I personally think killing them with some kind of swine byproduct and burying them with a hog might be effective. It worked for Black Jack Pershing. Saturation bombing of terrorist strongholds would also be effective."

Al Qaeda will love you for this kind of stupidity, this is the kind of ignorance I refer to when I say we are playing their game to make them stronger with ignorance like Guy and Sark show.
I believe 1.5 billion people on earth are Muslim and Guy wants to create a situation to get all Muslims to choose two insanities.

How many of todays Republicans are a stupid as Sark and Guy?

Liberal POV said...

Guy

Statement above should read

Guy wants to create a situation to get all Muslims to choose between two insanities.

guy faulkes said...

POV, it is not only Republicans that agree with Sark and I. The majority of the citizens of this country do also, including Independents, and moderate Democrats. I suggest you look at the poll numbers. You supporters of terrorism on the far left are in the minority.

Honest Debate said...

Lib,

Do you realize that Obama is relentlessly pursuing and killing Al Qaeda? There's a huge offensive happening in Afghanistan right now. Drone attacks are also way up. He's doing much better than I thought he would.

Just thought I'd let you know how much you disagree with Obama.

Sarkazein said...

H.D-

Where's Cindy Sheehan? Is she still hanging out in the ditch next to the road in front of President Bush's Crawford ranch? Maybe Obama got her some stimulus money to distract her from his war escalation.

Honest Debate said...

Sark,

Cindy Sheehan, to her credit, has been an outspoken critic of Obama's war policy. The difference is the press she gets.

Actually, I have some sympathy for Cindy Sheehan. The poor woman lost her son to war and is entitled to her delusions. She was used and exploited by a sycophantic media who were only interested in her because she was criticizing Bush. She is criticizing Obama but that no longer makes her a media darling.

Sarkazein said...

H.D- This makes it worse (or worst). The MSM gave her wall to wall coverage during President Bush's term.
Another pass for Obama. I really haven't heard anything about her lately.

Liberal POV said...

HD

"Do you realize that Obama is relentlessly pursuing and killing Al Qaeda? "

That's correct!

Compare that to:

""I personally think killing them with some kind of swine byproduct and burying them with a hog might be effective. It worked for Black Jack Pershing. Saturation bombing of terrorist strongholds would also be effective."

The key words here " relentlessly pursuing and killing Al Qaeda? " not just any Arabs or Muslims.

Can't you see the difference in stradegy?
Dick Cheney and Guy want to piss off the entire world and increase the enemy by a thousand fold.

We have honest debate, even when you use your obstructionist tactics. Posting the same lame things over and over is not honest debate. Personally attacking those that do not agree with you is not honest debate. Trying to change the subject when you have nothing to back up what you say is not honest debate. We all debate honestly except for you.

An example of honest debate is the discussion HD and I had on the Patriot Act. We neither changed the other's mind while havering what I considered to be an interesting discussion.

Liberal POV said...

Guy

" Posting the same lame things over and over is not honest debate."

You posting slander and lies when you don't have the facts,and data to support your comments requires the question to be ask again.
You are unable to carry out an honest debate.

guy faulkes said...

POV, so far you have been unable to prove I have slandered anyone or told any lies. Everything I have said has been backed up.

I cannot help it if you are ashamed of being a traitor. Stop supporting terrorism and I will stop bringing the fact you are a traitor to people's attention.

Chanting La La La La La to cover your lack of facts as you do with your pathetic repetition of posts does not help you. It detracts from what little value the original post may have had.

The only common denominator between us is you. We have all disagreed amicably with each other, as we have with Bridle and RV. You and BB are the only entities that use your ridiculous tactics of obstructive, repetitive, meaningless posts. You are both pathetic. It is not that our facts do not "cover" our posts, it is that you are religiously unable to admit that they do.

Liberal POV said...

POV, I gave them to you. You chose not to accept the truth. Another of your La La La La La statements is the claim that others put words in your mouth when you are caught in one of your idiotic statements. At various times you have also done this in reply to all of us.

Do these facts being exposed embarrass you or do you not have the capacity to understand hoe pitiful you are. La La land is about the only place you can survive.
