I assume that is not agreement, so show where we've closed it? The al;ws are on the book to stop it.Right.
You blamed it because we can't talk and chew gum at the same time. That was a misdiagnosis. You have not thought about it with a clear head and good reasoning.No, i diagnosed the problem accurately and so did you. The US cannot govern its borders. The reasons may vary according to individual political whims but the fact remains that Americans cannot control their borders. As a result of what's happened in the US and Europe, btw, Canada is now making their borders and immigration policies more strict.
The word is we won't, not we can't. There are reasons, and hyper partisanship is one of the reasons. Unless you properly diagnose the problem, you will never know what the solution is.You cannot govern your borders nor balance a budget, both thought at one time to be essential to any nation which took itself seriously. And there is still no will to turn things around. It will end badly. Blame the usual suspects but the consequences will be the same no matter who is at fault.
I know, you don't want to look at it honestly, but I will concede this isn't the place. It is easier to have a them than to see any nuance. I do understand, really.I dont want to argue VN. But it was as clear then as it is now whose side the Left were on.
true, and yep, there is a point. Bad apples spoil all bunches, be it military or civilian. The taste of VN was a bad taste, and the spoil spilled over. But the blame was with those who reckless and wrongly took us to an unneeded war, much like we saw again in Iraq.Yes, on occasion soldiers do bad things. So do civilians. Is there a point here?
yeah, but both of them don't matter. The point is a majority of a nation that is center right didn't support either VN or Iraq.America will never have a cause just enough to satisfy the American Left. Never.
Again, both of them don't matter. What was the comment about losing Cronkite? The fact was VN lost the country as a whole, outside of the relatively few extreme supporters. You blame the left, whoever they are, but the fact was the nation didn't support it.And this raw nerve was, largely, exasperated by the American Left. That is clear.
So far you've said nothing that has impressed me. You make claims that you know a great deal but this is followed by inane comments such as soldiers do bad things. Perhaps you should focus on what is said rather than falsely advertising your areas of expertise.
