Any country that is full evil should be invaded, its was 100% worth it.
The only thing that makes invading Iraq wrong is that they don’t invade countries like Zimbabwe.
Afghanistan war is the good war, drugs / terrorist.
Pakistan needs to be invaded, there CIA style ISI are terrorist that have nuclear weapons, there government is good people, but the people with the real power are the army / ISI, & they are terrorist & do help terrorist set up attacks & plan them for them, who noes , I think that maybe they had a hand in 9/11, but on the other hand, I really think that the CIA / bush new what they where going to do, the CIA / BUSH did not set it up to happen, but turned a blind eye & 100% new they would attack on that day & needed a reason to go to war,,,
In away it’s the public that may have lead to them turning a blind eye, unto something like that happens the public will say no we should not go to war……

Iran must 100% be stoped / invaded, they are fuc&ed up big time, anyone who thinks they should not are fulls big time,,, if they get to make a nuclear bomb they 100% will start to send heat seeker rockets to Iraq & Afghanistan to shoot down all helicopters and unmanned predator planes to defeat America.
If you really think Iran is not trying to make a nuclear bomb, you are the biggest full,, hear what they say, they said 100% just what north Korea said, they threaten you and sh&t like that so you don’t attack,, just like in Iraq now, they have dropped off sending in road side bombs and people to do attacks in Iraq ,, why,,,why,, how close have they got to make a nuclear bomb, thin about it,,,,,
They will threaten the west 100 times more, but will drop of attacks as they get closer to making a nuclear bomb…

Minnesota Canvassing Board Coverage

5:07 PM CT: Coleman +97, Franken +22, Other +41 (After 160 Challenges)

The Canvassing Board has concluded reviewing ballots, for today. After the final ballot was reviewed they went on to talk about the need for each campaign to further reduce the number of challenges brought to the board. The board reviewed 159 challenges put forth by the Franken campaign, and a single challenge by the Coleman campaign which was mistakenly in the wrong pile. Coleman's challenge was overruled and the vote went to Franken.
