Actually because a river in Ohio caught on fire and someone thought that maybe, just maybe, we can not pump a gazillion tons of toxins into the environment without consequence.

The problem with Obama's Arab Spring solution...

Hey, clueless, nothing whatsoever about the Arab spring is of Obama's doing - zip, nada, nothing. Arab Spring was initiated on the ground by the citizens of those countries in response to long-simmering issues and all brought to the fore by W and the neocon's decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq as 'dominos' for a 'wave of democracy'. The US, EU, Russia, Iran, and China have been along for the ride from the beginning in Tunisia and scrambling to remain relevant in and to the course of events. No one is managing or directing the Arab Spring or it's outfall because no one can. Mubarak, Benghazi, and Syria are all collateral outcomes everyone knew and predicted would be the result of destablizing the Mideast with two unnecessary preemptive wars which have benefited China and Iran way, way more than us.

Don't like those results? Too f*#king bad, you voted for the clowns who did the trundling that got all these balls rolling.

So Clueless

Tell me all hostages taking is the same; think you see too many TV series.

Are they blindfolded? Or hooded?

Are they all together or split up?

All in one bus?

Will they be driven to a building?

Time is running down think faster need to do something before more are captured and found.

Wait! one escape how do you get him and not fire on another by a truck or chopper. Who is the one that is escaping the hostage or the kidnapper?

How about some of the kidnappers putting hoods to look like a hostage to get out.

Ask what their demands are?

Would you talk to and make terms with the hostages?

Time hurry need to do something quick.

Would you let them or give in their demands while they take more.

Strikes first ask questions later or ask questions first and then strike.

Bring in ambulances to find out that the third and fourth one that were brought in has bombs in them creating more damage killing more targets as well as the facility.

Come on give some intelligent clues what you would do.

That vote outcome was the equally predictable result of a campaign of manufactured intelligence, treasonous lies, and incessant drumbeating for war setting a political tide and stage where to vote any other way was largely suicidal. Colin Powell's bravura performance in congress and the UN mouthing those lies sealed the political deal.

It was Cheney, Rove, and Rumsfeld's finest hour and all three would be in prison for treason if Obama and the democrats had a spine

Oh, and the Algerians have been dealing with these guys since the beginning of their absolutely vicious civil war in '91 with 50-150k dead (depending on who you believe).

Seven or seventy American oil/gas workers who understood the risks? In the context of a hardened and weary Algerian military response? Insignificant is what they were in terms of sending an uncompromising message to the rebels. And maybe you should toughen the f*#k up a bit given the policies you support have led to this with lots more on the horizon.

WTF: Do any of you f*#king einsteins know at all know why the EPA was in fact created?

Regarding the birth of the EPA - from the horses mouth:

Richard Nixon in his message to Congress explaining his reasons for proposing Reorganization Plan No. 3 (the creation of the EPA):

[the national government was] not structured to make a coordinated attack on the pollutants which debase the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land that grows our food.

...pulling together into one agency a variety of research, monitoring, standard-setting and enforcement activities now scattered through several departments and agencies.


Here's the executive order reorganizing government to create the EPA and NOAA

Here's the executive order establishing the EPA

How the f*#k did you decide the EPA had anything whatsoever to do with oil or energy independence? Dude - man - that's why we didn't call it the "Energy Department".

Algeria is a sovereign country.

The hostages are greedy bastards who are idiots for going to Algeria in the first place.

The USA has no responsility - NONE - to rescue idiots who go to dangerous places.

USA likes to make sure that their citizens are taken care of... in the eyes of the media at least. So you can't be ashamed you live in a country that would put forth some effort to help you.


Also, the Americans went to a bad part of the world. They should have had the proper securities.


Not everyone is a greedy tw*t f*ck Sierra Rat. Just because they're in the oil business, doesn't mean they're making tons of bank.


Sorry people have, make, and spend more money than you can fathom.
