Listen to the whole video... it's really quite good. But don't miss out on the comments I've copied over from under the video on YouTube. Sometimes you find the most interesting (or stupid) people.
Bill OReilly Slams Bush-Bashing Liberal European Press (Video)
"I don't think it's fair. I don't think it's right. The European press really did a disservice to the United States by pedalling a lot of propaganda... I think the hysteria over the rebirth is way, way overdone... Americans are very uneasy about Obama dismantling the Bush anti-terror strategies that have kept us safe for the last 8 years... If we're hit here after Barack Obama dismantles all the terror measures that kept us safe- He's done."

promoting torture and secret prisons, bill is a nutcase.
So your saying we should be pushovers like you are?
So your saying we should be douche bag promoting tortures like you?
Whatever it takes to keep America safe is what we need to do. I am tired of hearing all of this politically correct nonsense such as torture on terrorist is not right. How can you honestly say that? I usually can understand where someone comes from on a point but are you so niave to think that by doing nothing the terrorist will not harm us? We are too kind. We should be doing much worse tortures than water board.
Because if you bothered to take a moment to think about what's going on you would see.
American citizens are now being kidnapped and brought into other countries and held without charge. This is why we had laws like this, not to protect other people, but to protect US! Now those rules have been broken by us and it's opened the flood gates for every country out there.
Lead by example, and kidnapping people from their countries and torturing them is the example that has been set.
People? You got to be joking me. These are terrorist who have committed terrible crimes. And have killed innocent people. Lead by example? We have been leading by example by setting up our freedoms and we have been repeatably nice to these people we have asked them to give up their weapons of mass destruction. But yet they keep killing innocent people. And the second we try to defend ourselves Liberls have a hearattack because we actually have balls. And stand up for ourselves. Liberals = wimps
And who supplied them with those weapons?
SImple they either made them or got them from Russia or China. I know we gave Afganistan some tanks back in the 80's but we are mainly getting attacked with car bombs or suicide bombers. As for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Saddam Hussein had reportedly enough Anthrax to end the entire world.
Saddam got them from US contractors in the 80s which he used on the Kurds. He used them with American military funding and machinery which was labelled as "dual use technology", aka helicopters set up with crop dusting technology.
American gets involved in other countries and pushes it's weight around. When you don't have an F-16 and you're a poor country or group how would you strike back at the people involved, weather directly or indirectly, in killing your people?
But the whole reason we gave those to Afganistan was to stop Russia and to get rid of Russia.
I'm talking about the ones america gave to iraq.
As for afganistan you have to look at it from a broader context. America trained the afgans (aka Osama) to fight the russians. They did that. Then america starts transgressing against muslim countries. It helps israel who oppresses the palestinians. Sanctions are placed on iraq after the first gulf war killing over 500,000 people. The shaw of iran, an elected leader, is assassinated by the CIA amongst others.
The trained attack dog bit back
Excuse me, but the Shah of Iran was overthrown by the Ayatollah Khomeni, not assassinated by the CIA. And America doesn't "tresspass" against Muslim countries. We put our troops into Saudi Arabia at THEIR GOVERNMENT'S request. And yes, we help Israel, a country with a legitimate right to exist doesn't "oppress" Palestinians--all they do is what they need to do from getting blown to smithereens by these savages. Yeah, maybe they bit. But they turned on us, not the other way around.
Assume for a moment America isn't so well off, and Australia is supplying anthrax to those "dirty liberals" who use it to ethnic cleanse the republicans.
Who do you go after? Who do you blame? And in your poverty how do you strike back?
I go after the liberals because I can strike them easier. Also in my other comment we didn't give those weapons to hurt Afganistan we were after Russia in the cold war. Another thing about your comment above do you even live in America?
a) going after "liberals" is just ignorant. To believe the the entirety of the political views in the world rests on a single line consisting of a right side and a left side is beyond moronic.
b) I don't tell people where i live. It has no consequence on our discussion. We are discussing the policies of america which influence other nations.
If you question my place of origin then I question weather you've ever left america to see the rest of the world and what perspective do you actually have
A) Liberals is a fine line to classify people, however democrat and republican is not.
B) You obviously don't live in the United States so you really don't have much to say between what go's on with our country. As long as it doesn't mess with yours or threaten your rights ( However many you might still have left depending on where your living.)
And yes I have been to Mexico before. I did some charity work in Mexico 2 years ago. I will be returning their in March.
if you think george bush is a conservative your insane.he has expanded the federal government the most since FDR and the new deal.record deficits,no child left behind, his amnesty push,the 700 billion dollar bail out, etc etc.and no im not a liberal.i'm against obama also he has no plans for ending the war.wake up out the left/right paradigm.politics is like pro wrestling,they put on a big show like they hate each other but behind the scenes they are friends and they laugh at the public.
What the Hell?
DONALD RUMSFELD, the US Defence Secretary and one of the most strident critics of Saddam Hussein, met the Iraqi President in 1983 to ease the way for US companies to sell Baghdad biological and chemical weapons components, including anthrax and bubonic plague cultures, according to newly declassified US Government documents.that's from the online times dec 31 2002.and your talk about wmd's.the us is only country is history crazy enough to ever actually use one.
The U.S. is the only Country with enough brains to use Nuclear Weapons. Do you know how many lives we saved by using the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagisaki? Where did you get your information about Rumsfeld?
If torturing terrorists is OK, then pass a law making it legal, and, find them guilty of terrorism in court and then torture them. Until they have a trial, they are SUSPECTED terrorists.
But they aren't U.S. citizens. They don't deserve a trial.
Actually, many of them are, in fact, U.S. citizens.
Even if they were not, why don't non-citizens deserve a trial? If you are arrested in a foreigh country, do you think you should have no right to a trial?
A trial is a basic HUMAN right, not just a right enjoyed by U.S. citizens.
Because they committed terrible crimes. And how Brain-washed are you? Every single one of the people we torture were from the middle east. Or they had lived in America for a while ie. The terrorist that came up with 9/11 They also were seen commiting crimes. How the hell are we supposed to win a war? Thank God you aren't a general we wouldn't have a country. I've talked to people in the military they know whats going on in Iraq and they say that torture is necessary to get information.
It's simple: (1) torture does not work, those being tortured will say anything, it does not make what they say true; (2) those being tortured are not proven criminals; I don't trust the military or CIA to decide who should or should not be tortured. That's why we have open, public courts as a CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT in this nation. You people have no idea what this country is supposed to be. It is sad.
Dude what they say is recorded. If we can't find evidence that what they say is true we really torture them.
It just cracks me up when I read these things because often it is determined that neither side really knows what the hell they are talking about... and sometimes there are good arguments to make a person think and do a little research.
I wonder, in regards to the above conversations, where they are getting their facts and why they are coming at this subject from two very opposite ends. They can't both be right so either the news source is flat out lying or they are just interpreting it differently from one another. Just another one of those things to analysis.
