    You can't compare apples and oranges, and make these wars either Democratic or Republican. You must look at each war individually. Yes, there are some on the left who will bash Bush no matter what he did because they hate him, just as there are some on the right who bash Obama just because they hate him too. It's called political douchebaggery. I don't accept that kind of crap from either side.
    Do you really believe that you can get away with using the name 'Bush' in a post without me seeing it? Fat chance! I wonder who those rightwing Bush haters could be.

    Who exactly is it that the Fifth Fleet needs to be afraid of? If the United States Navy is going to be chased out of the middle east by a pissant country like Iran, we have bigger problems than we realize.

    American soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen simply are the best the world has ever known. They serve a polity with a political culture that doesn't deserve such men and women. We have bigger problems than we realize.

    I bet you really wish that was true. ****ing liberals with their educations... LOL.
