    Why do you try to instigate when I made NO comment about Iraq. Perhaps you should address any such grievance to those to whom it applies.

    Did the police just roll up and find the body, or was it actually reported?

    About the only thing which can save the city of Durham now is a series of high level drone strikes. It's time to go to war right here in America.

    wonder how many of those who "served in Iraq" did little more than sit safely behind a computer playing drone video games?
