    We're not sending troops to Sudan.

    It would behoove you read the article before offering an opinion on someone's assessment who clearly has read it. It quite clearly says troop will be sent to South Sudan.

    Hopefully it is worth it. Hopefully its not one those we help and then a decade or two later they fly planes into our builds or become another China.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Building empire. Conquering the world, whether we like it or not. America sends its military to secure more oil for private industry.

    Kampala Uganda's oil reserves could be as much as that of the Gulf countries, a senior official at the US Department of Energy has said.

    Based on the test flow results encountered at the wells so far drilled and other oil numbers, Ms. Sally Kornfeld, a senior analyst in the office of fossil energy went ahead to talk about Uganda's oil reservoirs in the same sentence as Saudi Arabia.

    So I take it you don't support public education unless you yourself are a teacher? And you don't support public police departments unless you yourself are a police officer? And you don't support public fire departments unless you yourself are a firefighter? I'm more interested in discussing the actual subject at hand, rather than whether civilians have a right to voice an opinion on foreign policy.

    wrong service - the Navy isn't going. the only land force that makes port calls is the Marines when we are riding around on the boats during Marine Expeditionary Unit deployments. I think you meant to say "when are you getting R&R leave", as that is the operational equivalent.

    as for oil, hey, if it's good for us and good for them, then that's just the best of both worlds.

    to be fair, he's merely using an attack that many iraq-war-critics used on the "chickenhawks".

    of course, you never used such a line, I am sure .
