    Its not just about country. Thats just a line you are drawing. You can draw all kinds of lines to keep people segregated. Fact of the matter is you should either support helping those in need or you should support not helping them. You cant be all for forcing some people to help the needy but against forcing others. It is hypocritical.

    1. I am pointing out that Democrats love to start wars and when the going gets tough they want to cut and run.

    2. see my last post on that talking point.....

    Clinton bombed the ever living **** out of countries too; doesn't make it right. Just goes to demonstrate that right or left, you get pretty much the same thing either way.

    And the Korean war itself was started by North Korea. Again I ask, do you think we should not have gotten involved or done anything?

    Sorry Navy, but when the result is the sides switching and the other side taking revenge on the other, I don't call that better. The only difference is the people Sadaam slaughtered, starting slaughtering the other side.

    As for Afghanistan, that is a different situation than Iraq is/was. Whole different ballgame there. Also remember that Afghanistan got WORSE under Bush. Hence the need for a "surge".

    If someone is suffering, you help them. When you have a regime mass slaughtering millions vs an american who has stand in line for a free lunch the choice should be made to help the millions dying vs the the people who are inconvienced by the hand outs they are receiving. Given the resources our country (and other wealthy nations) have there is no reason why it is a choice of either/or.

    It's not saying we won't help ANYONE else (At least I'm not saying that)
    To quote hatuey,
    **** everyone else.
    I am about helping the poor around the world and here in America. Everyone in the world should have a basic standard of living. Just because a person is closer to being the same as you than someone else does not make them more important. Today's world is segregated by hatred and uncaring for people who are different. Only caring about Americans is no better than only caring about whites. Or only caring about Christians. ect.
