"Yeah, it makes Freedom possible"

Terrible news out of Iraq...again. Boy that place sounds awful, good thing we helped bring that about, huh?
A blistering string of apparently coordinated bombings and a shooting across Iraq killed at least 51 and wounded dozens Sunday, spreading fear throughout the country in a wave of violence that is raising the prospect of a return to widespread sectarian killing a decade after a U.S.-led invasion.
Meanwhile, in just one American city, the blessings of the Second Amendment spread freedoms message at home:
Six people were killed and at least 13 others wounded in shootings between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, police said. Other weekend shootings killed one and wounded 16, bringing the bloody weekend total to seven dead, 29 wounded.
Thirty-six shootings in one city in one weekend.

And of course there are all of these all the time in America.

So who are we really to judge?

America sunk $2 trillion and thousands of American lives into Iraq, and today the airwaves are filled with lectures on "big government" and "high taxes" from the gullible fucktards who cheered on that disaster.
