Here's a piece on Sen. Joseph Biden's speech before the Council of Foreign Relations on Monday, Oct. 22, 2001, from The Drudge Report: [b]Sen. Biden Questions Airstikes' Time Frame; US Risks Looking Like 'High Tech Bully'[/b] [i]Wed Oct 24 2001 10:22:37 ET[/i] The top Democratic lawmaker on foreign policy said Monday that unless the bombing of Afghanistan ends "sooner rather than later," America risks looking like a "high-tech bully," the Wilmington News Journal reports. "Every moment it goes on, it makes the aftermath problems more severe," said Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. Speaking to the Council on Foreign Relations, a nonpartisan group of foreign policy experts, Biden said he understands the bombing is required to help safeguard U.S. special forces operations, and that requirement creates a difficult balance. Biden stressed that, like most Democrats, he has supported President Bush - but the "honeymoon' might get rockier soon." "The longer the bombing goes on, the more susceptible we are to criticism, [u]justified[/u] and unjustified, in the Islamic world," he said. "With every hour that passes, the United States pays an escalating price in the Arab world, and faces complaints that it is a high-tech bully that only attacks from the air." END And what would the 'justified' criticism [b]be[/b] that the US would be hearing from the Islamic World (EzraBenHun - 'Islamdom'), Sen. Biden? Are these 'complaints' well-founded in your mind, Senator? And what's this 'high tech bully that only attacks from the air' b.s. Is Bil Maher writing your speeches, Senator?

No, people who have bettered themselves so that they don't live in the stone age attack from the air. Forgive my memory lapse, what state does Mr. Biden 'represent'?

It just goes to show us that Truly "Usama Joe Biden" is more interested in perception then reality. Just as are most Democrats. If USAMA JOE BIDEN doesn't stop making weak statements people will start thinking he's a panzy. IF USAMA JOE BIDEN DOESN'T STOP TRYING TO DISARM AMERICAN'S WHO BEAR ARMS PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THINK HES A COMMUNISTS. IF USAMA JOE BIDEN DOESN'T STOP TRYING TO RAISE TAXES PEOPLE MAY THINK HE HOLDS MARXIST IDEAS. IF USAMA JOE BIDEN DOESN'T SHUT HIS MOUTH HE MAY ACTUALLY THINK HE WON HIS CHAIRMANSHIP, AND JIM JEFFORDS DIDN'T GIVE IT TO HIM. I think the logic holds across. Ben

I would pay money to watch Biden fight Patrick Leahy to the death, Gladiator style.

I am sooooo tired of people worring about an enemies feeelings. WHo the hell cares how the Islamic world views us!!! If any Islamic nation views us negatively then they are probably already our enemy so WTF difference does it make?? And "Hig Tech Bully"?? WTF is that?? Of course we are going to use high tech stuff, that's why we made it!! Heck, I wouldn't bring a knife to a gun fight if I owned a gun. So why shouldn't the US use the beast weapons possible?? Lots of idiots in this world.......unfortunitely alot of them are in government. sgtar15

Well I agree we should stop the bombing immediately, let OBL get all relaxed, come out & stretch his legs, let the Taliban get comfy & come out of the mountains, set up some supply lines, etc. Then bomb the crap outta them!
