Based on what he's allegedly (I haven't followed things back to the source to confirm credibility or anything, but it sounds plausible) been involved with in Central and South America, that alone would make him a terrorist.
Having said that, most of what "he" has done with regard to the US could be seen as a response to hostility or aggression. Occupying land and water near their borders hardly seems innocuous (we'd have plenty to say if China had carriers of our east and west coasts and bases along southern Canada and northern Mexico).

Saddam had wmds. He just didnt have them when we got there
Based on ... what? The fact that a few people in positions with a history of being caught lying said so?
I live in a mansion. You just can't see it, because it's invisible. You should just take my word for it. Makes the same amount of sense.

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
Agreed, so let's bring the troops home to vigilantly guard our borders, be able to see their families, and not put their lives at risk unnecessarily.

Interesting to see Boogie worried about the Deep State and entertaining conspiricay theories.
Seeing how Operation Ajax was handled, I'm not even sure it fits the definition of a "conspiracy theory" to question the government's dissemination of information to the public with regard to Iran.
I dont want to hear about the "link".....NPR is a left wing rag and this timeline is pretty accurate. So yea Iraq had and had used WMD multiple times. Everything Iraq did led EVERYONE to believe they had them and were hiding them.
