Lmfao. "Ended the war in Afghanistan".

Good poll. I would have voted for him in 2008, but not 2012, even with my current political beliefs, but not knowing what he would have done. Had I known what he would have done, I would have voted Republican both times.

Bin Laden wasn't a dictator. He didn't rule a country. He wasn't even formally part of a government of a country. He didn't meet the definition of the word "dictator."

Are you saying we shouldn't have killed bin Laden and that it led to the rise of more terrorist attacks?  I don't see how that could possibly be true.  Terrorists are going to try to kill innocent people no matter what; killing their leaders just helps weaken and disorganize them.  If he was the leader of a country I could maybe understand that, since killing him would destabilize the entire country and possibly give more power to terrorists, but he wasn't a dictator or even a leader of a country.

"Islamist terrorism" is, historically, a very recent phenomenon actively promoted only by a small minority of Moslems. It is not actually a tenet of Islam, or a doctrinal demand of it's members, and it was never a practice in the days of Mohammed, the Medieval Caliphs, or the Ottomans.

What? I can't even understand what you're trying to say. I understand English isn't your first language, but you just butchered the grammar there a lot worse than you usually do.

@Patine

I understand what he's saying. He's basically trying to tell you that he's Islamophobic. I'm not sure how this ties in to him not approving of the Bin Laden target assassination.

Your lack of knowledge of Africa also betrays you. You use the "Communist," or "Socialist," no doubt, like many do today - blindly accepting a self-proclaimed label, or one given in stereotype, without questioning or needing evidence. The sort of people who believe North Korea is still actually Communist just because it's still labeled as such, when in truth it hasn't been a remotely Communist regime since the 1970's, when the Juche ideal was adopted. I have a friend who was born in Rwanda, but spent 30 years as a refugee in Uganda before immigrating here to Canada. There are still people in the Western World who think Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is a "Marxist," simply because he declared himself one when he came to power 30 years ago, and thus, by default, must still be one. The truth is VERY different. Since he took power, he claims he's become a Born Again Christian tied to the politically active US Fellowship, and has both increased foreign investment and rampant corruption, and passed socially conservative laws far more draconian than they dare in the US anymore. In many ways, Robert Mugabe is a similar, though distinct, though he too is assumed, by default, that he MUST still be "Socialist."

I think you're using and defining the word, "Communist," in a similar vane to how the paranoid, jumping at shadows, overzealous witch-hunter Joseph McCarthy did...

Well, considering North Korea is, since the '70's, a wonky, brainwashed, ritualistic cult-state more in-line with the nations governed by "God-Kings" (or so they were believed to be) of antiquity than any sort of Communist or Marxist, it just shows this politician in Brazil is as uneducated on these affairs as you are.
