    apologies if this was already posted in this thread, not taking time to read them all....

    All politicians should be held to 2 terms, first term is in office, second term can be in office or in prison depending on how they do in the first term.

    That's actually pretty funny....I got a chuckle from that one Bill....

    Who cares what they do, as long as they don't threaten us, our allies, or our interests? They can all do themselves in short of that.

    I wasn't specific enough.

    What unfriendly nations do to keep up their military strength is a consideration in how powerful our own military has to be.

    Yeah, so? The UN model of war always fighting to a stalemate is a miserable world.

    So, we're OK with a military that is twice as strong as our enemies. We don't need one that is six times as strong, that's just overkill.

    We also don't need weapons that are powerful enough to wipe out the Soviet Union. We already won that war.

    and modern warfare is more likely to involve small arms and surgical strikes than it is to involve sophisticated weaponry and large naval vessels, especially if we've finally learned our lesson about not attempting nation building projects.

You may want to try and rewrite history here, but history is what it is.... History, and no matter how hard you try and make it "disappear", it will still be here.
    That all may have been true. How much money and time were spent "getting" T. Delay?
