Did you interpret my comments to mean, that the US was planning on invading itself and Britain?
you asked: Do we plan on going to over 50 other counties that house terrorist organizations? Including the USA and Britain? In order to invade the USA and Britain, there would need to be a damn good reason. And you're talking about "WE" as in Australia I assume.

so now we're moving from 'What terrorism have they committed on us? ' to how it made me feel? Consistency is not your strong point
You seem to believe that something can only be an attack on us if it happens in our country.

maybe, maybe not. There's a lot of dead civilians in the Middle east whose families would disagree with you
War brings collateral damage. Always has and always will. I doubt that you would consider them as terrorists during WW1 and 2.

that was the standard YOU set when you made this comment to try and identify terrroists 'What terrorism have they committed on us?, it's not me who set that standard .... I'm just trying to show you how inconsistent you are. When it suits you they're not terrorists because they did nothing to us personally, but then you change to they don't have to attack us personally to be terrorist .... try to stick to a position instead of selling out your beliefs to try and defend America or the UK

we have been in one war or another with the muslims, in their countries, since pre Lawrence Of Arabia, ... why don't you use that collateral damage bullshit to describe the twin towers?

I like how when the west bombs someone it's collateral damage, but when someone does it to the west its an act of terrorism ...Oops

You seem to think that the September 11 attacks were directed against enemy combatants, and a few civilians were caught up in it! :ROFL1 Oops

so when the US bombed Kunduz hospital they were targeting enemy combatants? Oops

Besides, how would you know who they were targeting ? There were all sorts of people occupying those buildings, maybe they were after one in particular and the rest were collateral damage ... after all, according to you that is perfectly acceptable

You seem to have interpreted what I asked as: What terrorism
have they committed IN OUR COUNTRY?
why would I or any other sane Aussie give a crap what happens in the UK or US?

That was NOT my question. So, stop hiding behind questions.

"Did you interpret my comments to mean, that the US was planning on invading itself and Britain?".

Clearly the "We" was referring to the US military. The hint is highlighted in the question itself. The point I was making, was that terrorist organizations exist all over the word. INCLUDING IN THE US AND BRITAIN!! Did the American military plan on also invading these countries as well?

That is the context of my question. Clearly, America is not shy in invading, or destroying the governments of other countries.

So not only are you asking about why the US doesn't invade Britain, you're asking why the US doesn't invade ITSELF? Seriously?

Accidental or deliberate?

You don't care when innocent people are murdered in another country? What sort of disgusting person are you? You didn't care one little bit when a bunch of innocent children were blown to pieces in Manchester in 2017? Wow, WHAT a guy you are!

Your allegation is a blatant lie.

Stop avoiding my question, by asking more questions. It's a simple yes or no!

"Did you interpret my comments to mean, that the US was planning on invading itself and Britain?".

If you did, then I will have to change my level of discourse to suit you. If not, then I don't understand your motives for focusing so hard on something that is clearly obvious.

ohh please, save your faux outrage for someone who might fall for it .... you were the person who claimed that when an innocent person is killed in the middle east it's collateral damage. Don't try pretend you suddenly care about the innocent

Accidental or deliberate?
who knows .... do you really think the yanks would tell you if it was deliberate?

It is collateral damage, and it is TRAGIC! I care deeply, and my heart goes out to those innocent people. I do NOT say as you do, and say that I do not "give a crap what happens" in countries outside of Australia.

Of course not.
