        And if you believe the rest of the media…Obama tried to save it but Bush poked too big of a hole in it.

    • Toba

      There's newer photos. Granted, its sitting on the ocean floor.

    • johnq

      someone yelled "I am king of the world" and a German U-boat sunk it. LOL

    • Alien28

      Somali pirates hijacked it and cut it up and sold it for scrap metal. They took the women and children as slaves and killed the men and boys. It was in all of the papers, surprised you missed it.

    • lat297

      Leonardo di Caprio died.

      Really… Stopping the violense by killing more?!

      Reminds me of a line I heard in the Simpsons when they're trying to dig their way out of a hole…

      ''No no no… dog UP stupid!''

      • smashy

        I agree with you, bombing the middle East won't stop violense, no matter where the USA bombs, illiteracy will still be rampant.

        BUT, if the USA does bomb the Middle East and those idiot extremists, VIOLENCE would be stopped or reduced greatly worldwide.

        "Yes yes yes…..spelling mistakes when saying a group is stupid, makes you a total fucking retard" you TWATWAFFLE

      • Reality

        Violence isn't always the answer, but sometimes it is the only answer.

      • TPM50

        Peace through strength fuck face.

    • mike

      should never again happen to anyone. Why dont we blow one up your a$$ !!!

    • sharon

      Really? So you're all for murdering women and children? Not to mention probably hurting your own family with the the nuclear waste that would eventually contaminate your food? Glad you're not in charge of dropping the bombs.

      • silky

        What food do you eat that comes from Aghanistan?

        • lols

          i love me a good poppy, herion, and marijuana sandwich.

      • Facts

        Did you know that over 2000 nuclear weapons have been detonated since 1945?

        • Observationalist

          Yes, underground, underwater, and on far off pacific islands. If you think all those were harmless you need to look up the cancer and mutation cases in French Polynesia and surrounding island nations. Also, look up the facts on the number of Dutch Army who have cancer for assisting the US with nuclear tests in the arctic circle.

    • johnq

      hard to drop a nuke in mountains, wont work the same way as on a flat piece of ground.

      • Rock and Roll

        The first educated remark thus far. Afghanistan isn't a sandpit like Iraq is. Asscrackistan is dry mountains, rocks, and rubble. You could nuke it, but the shockwaves would be limited in range and the fallout wouldn't contaminate much (as there isn't much useful organic matter out there to begin with, mostly just rocks).

        • bob

          it may be a sad conclusion to come to, essentially thinking like a bunch of Hitlers, but its how they all think of us, its merely coming to a "who hits first" endless war. they dont think like we do, about personal rights, political or religious freedoms. its their way or the highway, and i for one do not feel like "hitting the road".

          • NL--

            They are not coming to the US to make you think like they do. 9/11 was their way of saying ;stop meddeling in our busines. Millions of people died because the USA thinks it is always richt. And if it werent for the CIA's intervirence, Bin ladin and that ''rat'' in Iran would never have come into power.

            • TPM50

              you are a fucking moron, they would cut your head off and shit down your wind pipe because you are an infidel.

              • Observationalist

                But he is correct. The US gave them their weapons long before 9/11 and gave them the technological means to leave the desert.

            • Efff

              But seriously, in the war between Russia and Afghanistan we gave Bin Laden and other groups there TONS of weapons. Guess it bit us in the ass.

        • silky

          You sir, have never been near Kandahar then. It is very flat and very desert-y 😛 plus it's the home of the Taliban, so great place to have targeted in 2001.

        • Mark

          Ah, WRONG! All nuclear war heads are 'air burst" weaponary. In other words, they explode high in the atmosphere for maximum effect. Usually at an altitude of about 500 to 3,000 feet depending on the terrain. Even in Afghanistan, this would be extremely effective as the heat wave and following shock wave would decimate anything within it's range.

    • matt

      holy fuck thats frightening that this sentiment exists

    • TheDJ

      "You're no different from Hitler, you just don't have the power..

    • ZJL

      How dare you suggest that anyone else is hurt by the hand of another. How dare you.

    • cowards

      lets think about this. so (assuming afghanistans government supported 9/11 and not just bin laden and a group of terrorists) afghanistan's government cowardly attacks innocent civilians as an attack on their government and their policies. your brilliant response would be to then cowardly attack innocent civilians as an attack on their government and their decisions.

      seems almost as smart as having violent riots because someone called you violent. youre all impossibly stupid.

      • cowards

        know what else would have saved coalition lives over the past 11 years? not invading iraq.

        but no, kill millions of civillians to save the lives of 1000s of soldiers is probably the best way to go. especially cause as you say, you have no idea what north korea or iran are planning. so igniting a nuclear war seems, again, the smart way to save soldier's lives.

    • Armored Dad

      Get Israel out of the Middle East before you drop anything. They are the only civilized M.E country who have and can continue contribute positive to this world.

      • Nl--

        You call the way Isreal is acting civilized? Stealing land, humiliating the palastinian people, shooting innocent women and childeren? I wonder how you would act if an Indian came to your house with a piece of paper witch proves that that land was his 2000 years ago, and he would drive you from your house with force and shoot your son for trowing a stone at him. I ask you : is this civilized ?

      • TWNPN

        Oh sure, for the 5 plus billion plus we give Israel every year, we get so much in return ..NOT.. Bibi does not make decisions for the USA. especially based on his obsession with Iran.. No, we will NOT finance your war Netanyahu.. This bellicose man will destroy the country he claims to love..There will be no peace in the world with the liars and the killers on the Right in charge anywherein the world.. Just ask the israeilis.. they do NOT like this narcissist and will vote him out next year..
