The First Thing They Say.

Al Qaida has released another video showing a poorly done graphic of an attack on the US Capitol building. Now, whether or not they actually have a plan or capacity to do this, it needs to be taken seriously and kudos to ABC news for releasing this.

What is just as disturbing though is some of the comments that are showing up.

Another question for ABCNEWS. How do you know terrorists created this video?? How do you know some (western) intelligence agency didn't create this video as a form of disinformation? Why did the terrorists superimpose ENGLISH headlines in their video? The English writing indicates to me that some western group developed this video to spread disinformation towards Enligsh speaking viewers.

or



Is this really terrorist tapes or yet another made up form of propaganda put out by the Bush administration in order to use fear tactics and thus, get their war.

There are those who simply refuse to see. I don't know what to do about those who think America is a greater threat than the Jihadists are. We are a threat to those who want to rule the world or enslave others. We are not a threat to nations who wish to live in peace with themselves and their neighbors.

We can't do anything about those who refuse to see. We can continue to try, and hope and pray that some of them get it, and perhaps they do, Shoprat, but we'll probably never know. It's very frustrating!

I'm surprised ABC published the video.

Dang, Shoprat! I went to the link you left and read the entire comment section. I knew there were many people in total denial regarding terrorism, but almost all of them are also extremely obnoxious in stating their views. These are very rude and classless human beings.

It's amazing how people fail to see anyone other than us (the United States) as a problem. My step mother in law actually sees white people as the worlds problem. As if life for every one else in this world was fine until the 'white man' came along.

Hi Shoprat,

Gayle, Chrisa, I can't agree more...

Even those among us, as the post suggests, want us defeated. They seem to hate the original American ideal.

Can they be this blind?..

Gosh, you caught me during a completely ambivalent period. In the midst of the budget stuff, amnesty for 12-20 million criminals, an even worse culture of corruption today than what the Demonocrats campaigned against ... I'm trying hard to see a downside to AQ's plans. Especially since we'd then feel compelled to finish off a job well started and poorly carried out ... AND have a chance of "fresh blood" in DC.

Gayle The comments were astonishing, but a lot of people did take the Blame-America-Firsters to task, which made me quite happy.

Christa White people are just like everyone else, a mixture of good and bad. Too many people, including a good many whites, don't understand that.

jr As long as we exist we hamper their dream so of course they hate us.

Pete You are kidding . . . right?

One thing I've tried my hardest to live and tell others in various ways is that as much as we try to identify that which is a problem, we cannot. Race / color, gender, hair color, what not does not define character. Actions do. It's like when we attack the looters in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. It was not racially motivated.

"I have a dream that one day my four children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" - Martin Luther King, Jr.

We judged the content of their character. And that is a quote I always try to keep in mind.

yeah ... mostly ... I don't place much/any value on our overpaid, underworked, and entirely useless congresscritters and Senatesnorers ... but I don't wish death upon anybody.

>>"I have a dream that one day my four children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" - Martin Luther King, Jr.<<

Unfortunately, when we judge them on their character (or lack thereof) we are still accused of racism. I don't think MLK would be pleased ...
