Indeed, the exodus of Christians is ongoing. Has anyone noticed that the Christian population of Iraq has shrunk from more than 1 million in 2003 to maybe 300,000 today? Now, there are virtually no Christians left in either Mosul or on the plain.
yes over one million and he wiped out the Christian community, to bad he couldn't read his fathers book.

Oh yeah, that's right Bush is the only President to authorize torture.
Kuala Lumpur — It’s official; George W Bush is a war criminal.
In what is the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, the former US President and seven key members of his administration were yesterday (Fri) found guilty of war crimes.
Bush, #$%$ Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia.
The trial held in Kuala Lumpur heard harrowing witness accounts from victims of torture who suffered at the hands of US soldiers and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
They included testimony from British man Moazzam Begg, an ex-Guantanamo detainee and Iraqi woman Jameelah Abbas Hameedi who was tortured in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison.
At the end of the week-long hearing, the five-panel tribunal unanimously delivered guilty verdicts against Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their key legal advisors who were all convicted as war criminals for torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.
Full transcripts of the charges, witness statements and other relevant material will now be sent to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as the United Nations and the Security Council.
Old, bitter, racist, uneducated people clinging to their guns and bibles aren't everyday people, so you're right she won't be your champion.
The Koch brothers may not be settling on a Republican presidential candidate just yet. One day after The New York Times reported that the Kochs were getting behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a "top Koch aide" tells Politico the billionaire brothers are going to give Jeb Bush a "chance to audition for the brothers' support."
The reason for the reconsideration, according to Mike Allen: "Bush is getting a second look because so many Koch supporters think he looks like a winner."
It's possible the Kochs really are undecided. It's also possible they're doing some damage control to contain the fallout from the Times story.
Either way, David Koch, fresh off proclaiming Walker would be the nominee, walked back the remark in a statement to Politico. While Walker would make a "terrific" president, he said, "I am not endorsing or supporting any candidate for President at this point." Jon Terbush
Can anyone name the one middle east country that has refused to sign the NPT?
(Hint it's the only middle east country with 150 nuclear missiles.)
this guy put it well
So imperialism by the "civilized" world wasn't evil enough for him to return; the history of slavery wasn't evil enough for him to return; the murder of indigenous tribes for manifest desinty wasn't evil enough for him to return; the holocaust wasn't evil enough for him to return; world wars and atomic bombs weren't evil enough for him to return; an apparent rash of pedophilia by Catholic priests wasn't evil enough for him to return...
We could look back upon the past 2,000 years and find so many horrors yet she has chosen a random nuclear treaty negotiation (by the way, Pakistan has nukes so the Muslim world is already there if you wish to paint them all with the same brush) and an attempt not to judge others as the trigger for God to finally say, "ENOUGH!"
"Blessed are the peacemakers."
That was something I read somewhere; yet the most delusional among us believe the greatest military super power in the history of the world is blessed by God. I may not be the brightest guy in the room but maybe Obama is being a peacemaker by negotiation instead of bombing.
It's truly unbelievable.
You can't make up how stupid these people are.
We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events," Bachmann said. "Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”
Later in the interview, Bachmann again tied her rapture prediction to Obama’s foreign policy.
“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” she said.
Obama has said repeatedly that the goal of the nuclear talks with Iran is to prevent the country from developing a nuclear weapon.
Bachmann also blamed abortion and gay marriage, arguing that God is punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view.”
The telling thing is what happened next. Rubio got some feedback from Republicans and decided that his plan was flawed. Specifically, its major flaw was that it did not cut taxes for the rich nearly enough. The measly $40,000 a year the average one percenter would save hardly moves the needle in a party where candidates are turning to the likes of Stephen Moore and Arthur Laffer to outbid each other to relieve the affluent of their tax burdens.
So version two of Rubio’s plan added on some new features. Rubio now promises to keep all his previous tax cuts, plus he would eliminate all taxes on capital gains, dividends, interest, and inherited estates. This isn’t “buy a new BMW every year” type money for the one percent. It’s more “Scrooge McDuck swan dive into a pile of gold” type money. Paris Hilton’s descendents would be able to go several generations deep into the future without anybody working a day in their life.
The mentally ill tea billies can't distinguish reality.
A US aircraft carrier and guided-missile cruiser are steaming to the waters off Yemen to dissuade Iranian ships from delivering arms to Houthi rebels there, a move the White House has cast as primarily a show of force.
The USS Theodore Roosevelt and the USS Normandy will join 10 other American warships off the coast of Yemen. The deployment follows the UN Security Council’s decision last week to approve an arms embargo on the #$%$ Houthis.
The Pentagon said in a statement that the ships are to protect the region's vital shipping lanes. But unnamed White House officials said that they are prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthis.
Let's see he doesn't think understanding the biggest foreign policy blunder since Napoleon invaded Russia is relevant. LOL
the GOP clown car gets funnier and funnier
now why would someone respond to a post about deadpainting id if he wasn't deadpainting, well no one could ever accuse the tea billies of being smart, remember when Rick said no smart person would ever vote for a GOP candidate?
still glad you listened to Rush and Beck and sold all your stocks and bought Gold in 2008? Oh yeah that's right the only thing you morons own is a gun, a bible and 2 years of packaged food for your nuclear shelter,
YOU CAN'T MAKE UP HOW STUPID THESE PEOPLE ARE!!
I managed to keep most of my money by shorting stocks under Bush, I've made yet another fortune owning stocks under Obama. Can't understand how tea billies can be so stupid to want to go back to Bush policies that crashed the, auto, banking, housing economy, the stock market, to the point where the country was losing 800,000 jobs A MONTH?
Oh wait, that's right Obama is black. Now I understand.
Freddy thought having his spine severed like the police were jihadist was an incident.
Baltimore police said in court documents that a man who died after his spine was nearly severed while in custody had been arrested "without force or incident."
The officers asked that 25-year-old Freddie Gray be charged with carrying a switchblade, punishable by a year in jail and a $500 fine.
Police also said Gray suffered an unexplained "medical emergency" while in a police van and was immediately taken to a hospital for treatment.
That contradicts the official police timeline, which says an ambulance was called to the police station nearly 45 minutes after his arrest. He died a week later.
