2. #1 Walid we will destroy terrorists whenever they hide
Besalel ,   Great Neck, NY   (09.11.13)
Your list of locations where our country sliced the heads off the terrorists will grow until the last terrorist is destroyed and all the Walids, Mohammeds, Adbuls and Kalims who believe Allah sent them on a mission to kill the infidels are utterly and completely wiped off the face of this Earth. God bless America for fighting against the terrorists in every corner of the Earth where the terrorists may believe they can outrun the American arm of justice. As they have learned, America will not stand by silently and allow the terrorists to drive the world into the dark ages.
3. #2, America is no longer the world's policeman
Jake   (09.11.13)
And under the rule of the "Manchurian Candidate", the decline of the American empire is proceeding at an accelerated pace. What political gain has there been for America from any of these wars? Just to remind you, relying on the use of force and the threat of force is how the mafia operates. Obama can spin it any way he wants, but America's power remains based on the premise that "Might makes right". Like the mob. And for a while it works, but in the end there is always a downfall. All the mob bosses either end up in the can or in the graveyard.
4. Save your Crocodile tears Omonkeyboy
Dror ,   Haifa, Israel   (09.11.13)
Obama is the most insincere two faced shmock in politics alive today. Monkey boy and Lurch from the Munsters are just a disgrace. There is absolutely nothing they can do to save America from the collapse. All they can do is try to cover it up with war.... What a pathetic display of how far America has fallen. BOMBS AWAY!!!!!! WOOOOO!!! We is gonna go bankrupt. MAY AS WELL BLOW UP THE WORLD WHILE WE ARE AT IT.... WOOOO!!!
5. I don't have an achy breaky heart
Soq Maddiq ,   Amman   (09.11.13)
My heart doesn't ache at all. In fact I'm handing out candy at this moment.
6. #5
Alain ,   Sao Paulo Brazil   (09.11.13)
May these candies poison those who eat them
7. #1
Alain ,   Sao Paulo Brazil   (09.11.13)
May be the US should bomb them again.
8. 9/11 was not a terror attack, no planes.
JMK ,   NYC   (09.11.13)
9. JMK #8, uhhh, lay off the shrooms
Jake   (09.11.13)
I and everyone else with me on that day had our eyes glued to the TV screens in the minutes following the attack on first tower. We all saw the plane hit the second tower. There was some confusion about what happened after the 1st tower was hit, but after the 2nd tower was hit, not a single person doubted it was a terror attack. If you also want to believe that the Earth is flat, there is a society of whackjobs dedicated to that belief. I am sure they will be more than receptive to your views on 9/11.
10. Obama seeks the same world as Reverend Wright.
Chaim ,   Israel   (09.11.13)
When Obama talks about changing the world, he means changing it to be more like the world sought by the likes of Reverend Wright and his radical S.D.S. friends.

Birdi ,   Israel   (09.12.13)
Hope you choke on your candy.
