    I do not think the right wing has any room to complain unless we end up in a 8-year+ war. If this ends up being just a one or two month campaign that saves thousands of lives... well, I'd say good call. We are not the world police, that's for sure, but ending mass rape and murder in a territory could be considered a good deed.

    His point is that apdst (http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1059878592) and you (http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1059878576) tried to prove that China had a military presence in the Sudan, but failed to do so.

    I don't know if it's been reported yet, but here's a NYTimes.com article that puts alittle more perspective on this Lord's Resistence Army and why the President sent troops to Uganda to combat them.

You don't go to war with well-established governments of large countries for uncertain benefits and dubious reasons. Iran is a situation that begs for caution. Fighting the LRA has few of the costs and few of the consequences, and would unarguably be beneficial for the world.
    They are already at war with us. Three to four hundred JDAMs, 300-400 TLAMs all intended to hit their targets at about the same time would do wonders for Iran's attitude. If we could destroy every building important to the Iranian regime in one week's worth of night strikes, I think we would set them back and reap the benefits of the rest of the world deciding they had better not piss us off.

    The one term Marxist president Obama said this was a national security issue. So given that you stand with the president what is the national interest? Are you willing to go do your part?

    No evidence would convince you. Sleepwalkers are notoriously difficult to convince of anything.
