    Well, you take your posts seriously I guess, so that is something. Even our most partisan people don't play juvenile hackish games like you do. Something to take pride in.

    so how do you prioritize and what are you willing to sacrifice both in lives and money to accomplish this and for how long
    I dont put a monetary value on life. When it boils down to life vs money I'll take life every time. As far as lives, I dont believe anyone should be forced to fight. But I also think a well funded global initiative to end starvation and stop some of these horrific regimes would muster plenty of volunteers.

    Well I'm not hatuey.
    No, thankfully you are not. But you used the word WE previously when replying to something I said to Hatuey

    It is especially disturbing that we have poor, homeless, unemployment, yet we send BILLIONS of dollars across the globe in aid to others.
    Being poor in the US does not have the same meaning as being poor elsewhere. A poor person in America has means to eat and get warm in many cases. Billions of dollars is going overseas but much of it is going to governments and is not having the effect it could and should.

    Could of would of should of...... Tried to bomb the North into submission, but did not work. Tried to slowly escalate the war, did not work. The majority of Vietnamese did not support us there, was not a popular war in the US after a few years, and from the get go many people were calling it a unwinable war.

    Well, actually, we forced the North to submit to signing a peace treaty. But, don't let the facts get in the way of your talking points.

    Listen my left wing friend............The people in the south were mostly farmers not soldiers........I spent 13 months there I know, In addition a couple of low yeild nukes strategically placed would have brought the NVN and the Viet Cong to their knees just like it did with the Japanese.........
