    I think the next candidate must go farther than reduce the Pentagon by half but also prmonise to shut down the CIA. The criminal CIA represents a government within a government

    I think the US should follow the Prime Directive. I'm tired of my taxes funding the world's police force.

    I also think the US should speak softly and carry a big stick. If it must defend as it did in WWII, then engage in war to win.

    And yes civilians are a casualty of war. Governments place their own citizens in harms way and when the US tries to avoid civilian casualties, American service men and women die.

    You can't be politically correct and win at war. It costs much more in human as well as economic capital.

    So what happens if Assad commits the unspeakable horror and gasses his own people? Seems more like an Israeli or Turkey concern, not a US one.

    Perhaps Uncle Sam's hands are full now with the forthcoming elections, fixing the economy, and plans to attack Iran.

    I never said it but johnny_rebson did: "It involves sending our military to kick some major butt in a nation where they really deserve it."
