There is a double standard to expressing opinion around here it seems... if someone were to make a statement indicating that they enjoy watching certain nationalities/ethnicities die... the lefties would be in an uproar. People are silent when it pertains to Americans or Jews though, they being war mongers and everything else....

Jan. 22, 2007 issue - Intel director John Negroponte gave Congress a sobering assessment last week of the continued threats from groups like Al Qaeda and Hizbullah. But even gloomier comments came from Henry Crumpton, the outgoing State Department terror coordinator. An ex-CIA operative, Crumpton told NEWSWEEK that a worldwide surge in Islamic radicalism has worsened recently, increasing the number of potential terrorists and setting back U.S. efforts in the terror war. "Certainly, we haven't made any progress," said Crumpton. "In fact, we've lost ground." He cites Iraq as a factor; the war has fueled resentment against the United States.
Crumpton noted some successes, such as improved joint efforts with foreign governments and a weakening of Al Qaeda's leadership structure. But he warned of future attacks. "We don't want to acknowledge we're going to get hit again in the homeland, but we are," he said. "That's a hard, ugly fact. But it's going to happen." Crumpton cited no specific intel, but said the most worrisome scenarios involve lone operatives who slip into the country and take directions through cyberspace. "How do you penetrate that?" he asked. Citing family financial pressures, Crumpton leaves office in two weeks. A State official, anonymous when discussing personnel matters, said no one has been nominated to replace him, so it could be a while before the post—a top counterterror job—is filled.
It won't matter, she wasn't cheering about dead Muslims, only Americans. Fully acceptable in the tolerant Canadian society.
The Canadians that were killed in 9/11, I imagine they brought it on them selves as well?
youre wacked. everytime the teachers show films about those towers getting bombed or whatever me and my friends cheer!
The Americans should keep their soldiers home.
That way, we could all be wearing swastikas and shooting "Heil Hitler" at each other.
Or we could be undergoing benovelent re-education in a Canadian Gulag under the supervision of the dictatorship of the proletariat.
Geezus! These people are our allies, and our friends. Yes, they have become involved in things and places they should have stayed away from, such as Vietnam, and yes on occassion their actions have been reprehensible.......as in Latin America.
But had they "stayed home" over the last 75 years, we'd be in one hell of a mess.
These are our ALLIES!

Of course the US is going to get "hit", or "American Interests Abroad" at the very least- the latter is inescapable, since there are so many fingers in so many pies, and even attacking US military installations in places where they have no real reason to exist can and will be spun into "Terror" by the MSM
The "war on Terror" is SO dumb it hurts.
And as a final thing about 9-11- well, shock and awe aside, all's I kept thinking was that, after hearing the debates for the 2000 election, was "Well, George Bush did swear to 'reform the American military' and 're-define the way wars are fought in the 21st century'" and it was obvious to me that no matter how horrific the scene (and no matter how or what was responsible, tho I was surprised at how fast the media came up with a largely unknown figure to pin it on conclusively) it was going to be used as the carte blanche and give the US a "reason" to go and raise hell all over the globe... I do not cheer it, but rather view it with a grim certainty taht someone, somewhere, in the halls of power in the US no doubt cheered it, not for what it was but for what it could become
So yeah, in closing, I will NOT be too sad if more attacks happen, same as whenever you see "that guy" who always gets beat up looking like he just got beaten up again- no satisfaction, but a sense of "if you really don't wanna get beat up, figure out why it keeps...
I am absolutely not belittling Canada's contribution in both world wars, and Korea.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
We lost more people than the Americans in the First World War. They were late-comers, not getting in until 1917. BUT they helped turn the tide.
In World War Two, we lost a greater proportion of our population than the United States. This is also due to the fact we fought for two years longer than they did. Those losses would include my uncle, shot down over Germany in a Wellington bomber in the summer of 1941. BUT the Americans retook the Pacific practically single-handedly (with the ANZACS, great soldiers), and put 10 million in uniform. Not only that, 6 months after their entry, US military production was more than Germany and Japan combined..............without the USA we would have had a very nasty time indeed........the war would have lasted years longer, IF we had managed to win.........and most certainly our victory would have been achieved mostly by Uncle Joe STalin............leaving that murderer (worse than Hitler) in control of continental Europe. Talk about a jump from the frying pan to the fire!
In the Cold War, Korea et al, it was the USA that did the lion's share............the USSR did not stay out of Europe because they feared the Canadians.........
They feared American power.

You are validating Osama Bin Laden with your comments, he did not represent anybody, or any
country, he was thrown out of Saudi Arabia, (his birthplace), and his group who attacked on
Sept. 11, were not representing any muslims, arabs, or any country at all, so you give him
respect, I would wonder why, and state the u.s. was asking for that, how could that be, in
