    So who is the agressor? Every country that doesnt agree with the US? War against whom? Also this means that you agree with the IRaqi resistance
    Those nations that fund, aid or support those terrorists. I dont agree with iraqi resistance because I dont believe in resisting democracy and freedom.

    Who the hell are you to change other people's societies? And then you wonder why people are preapred to blow themselves up, its this kind of attitude that recruits terrorists..
    The victim of the evils of their society. I also have the maxim gun, they do not.
    Clearly it isnt, because that kind of attitude is a result of terrorists prepared to blow themselves up.

    I read her columns reguarly, Ive seen her interviewed, I know what shes said. Some of it is outrageous, but it mostly hits at a real point she wants to make.

    i )The US was attacked, this was an act of war. It *should* by rights, engage in war.
    ii) These terrorists are the product of their society. Change the society
    You're points (i) + (ii) do not explain what Coulter said. Coulter said that we should invade the middle-east, kill their leaders and convert the region to Christianity. Even if the attack was an act of war it was very important, and to America's credit, that they didn't immediately act rashly. Unfortunately, Coulter (like O'Reilly) fell for the bait- saying exactly what the terrorists wanted them to say. Causing even further devision between the Muslim and Christian communities and therefore causing more Muslims to feel annimosity towards the US. As for your part (ii), most of the Al-Qaeda terrorists are a product of Saudi Arabia- a country that the US has very good links with. Why didn't the US invade Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.

    If I remember rightly she was criticising airport security for intentionally refusing to racially profile. It seems common sense to treat 4 young Syrians with one way tickets with more suspicion than a Norwegian family. I dont think thats an outrageous demand.
    Firstly, it is completely wrong to racially profile. It is this sort of behaviour which isolates Muslims and creates tension. Everyone should be checked at the airport but it would be wrong to stop the 4 young Syrians if there was no evidence that they were linked to terrorist groups and had not acted strangely etc. A huge amount of Syrians have gone to the USA for education, they should not be views as terrorists just because they have darker skin then the Norweigen.
    Also, Coulter's second comment about removing all legal Arabic aliens is disgraceful and it is no surprise to me that you chose to ignore it.

    hehe, it might be a better country, women are far more liberal than men for a variety of reasons and tend to vote Democrat. Why? I dont really think its a particuarly interesting or insightful comment. It wouldnt be democratic, but thats irrelevant to the remark. Being a woman herself, I dont honestly believe she would deny women the right to vote.
    Dosen't this show her stupidity. She is a woman herself yet would deny them the right to vote. Her reason is that becasue woman don't know how to make money. She really has her proirities in place dosen't she!! Do you really think that we should go back to the 1800s where woman sat at home and looked after the children. I am male and even I am sticking up for woman more than she does.

    I'll take her word for it.
    That says it all. You will beieve and agree with any Conservative, right-winger no matter how stupid their remarks.

    Any examples of xenophobia?

    As a news anchor, compare Shep Smith with Peter Jennings

    What's the difference between Bill O'reilly and Bill Moyers??
    Have you never watched The O'Reilly Show. Or Hannity. Need I say anymore. Jennings is far more respected and far more impartial. O'Reilly and Hannity are the best examples of Fox news' biasness and poor quality journalism.
    To become a presenter on Fox news you have to be a right-wing Conservative. They ask you this at the job interview. This has been revealed by former employees. It is amazing how they can criticise a news channel as respected and impartial as the BBC.

    Hehe, no, im an atheist. Seeing as you characterise her as being of the Conservative Christian right, she is in a better position to interpret that accordingly. I frankly couldnt care less what the bible says on the matter.

    Set aside your political correctness and stop taking her literally and you will see that her arguments are all based on solid premises.
    You do not use figures of speech of exaggerations when you talk in public about sensitive matters such as immigration.

    They are not liberals. They ae what are defined as 'Fox news liberals'. This means that they are quiet moderates who are scared to challenge any of their many right-wing colleauges.

    They are not liberals?????
    Susan Estrich is a liberals liberal, she was Mike (the socialist) Dukakis' campaign manager in the '88 prez election. Geraldine Ferraro was the VP candidate in the '84 election...... she was even more of a pinko socialist than Walter "Captain Commie" Mondale. I could go, but you get the message.

    BTW, the 4 young syrians who were profiled, you call it racial profiling (as a liberal would), I call it profiling, and it's fine with me. It's too bad *you* have to put a prefix in front of it.

    I don't see your point. Everyone including the mainstream media in America views Fox news as a right-wing, Conservative news channel that is very pro-Republican. By far the majority of its analysts, punits, commentators, guests are all right-wing Conservatives. You might be able to pick out one or two low-key 'liberal' workers there, but the fact is that they are in the minority by far.

    If you are profiled based on the colour of your skin it is 'racial profiling'- this is completely incorrect and very different from profiling based on the country people are from.

    USA posted a list of Fox news analysts, all were liberals. Yes, Fox is conservative, but a needed alternative network.

    There's no such thing as racial profiling.....it's profiling...Period. However, additional info must be given

    EG The man is East Indian, black hair, about 160 lbs, 5' 9", tatoo on left forearm....etc....If the man is black (African American) you call it like you see it.

    As for the terrorists, profiling is fair game.

    For all Ann Coulter fans, Coulter is against the nomination of Judge John Roberts, she thinks he may be another Souter. Judging from the silence of the pinko's, at this point in time, I tend to agree.
