    You should learn to keep up before commenting. You didn't even know about the Gosnell murders either.

    The story is true, btw.

    That flushing sound is your credibility going down the drain. Just a heads up.
    before dismissing the stories based on the source (which I agree are querstionable, to put it lightly), you should look into the story further. Being that none of these exist outside the realm of possibility

    No, it wouldn't. Many of our worst areas (think: DC) have higher spending per student, and continue to fail massive portions of our rising populace. Our spending is well above that of most nations:



    And has increased dramatically over the past few decades with nothing to show for it.



    we dont' need to spend more (and in fact, spending more will probably hurt). We need to spend more wisely.

    So what other "benefits" have we reaped from destabilizing Iraq?
    In Iraq? The removal of the Saddam regime and the regional delegitimization of AQ were both fairly solid successes. As a human being, I consider that we left the country a better place with a better future than when we found it. As an American, I'm glad that we met our geopolitical goals; however, I find the full withdrawal nature of our leaving (and the extent to which it has enabled Iran) to be abysmally stupid and destructive. Hitchens has an excellent quote which is appropriate here: "What the isolationists don't understand is that non-intervention doesn't mean nothing happens; it means something else happens." That that something else might be more inimical to US interests or the universalist truth-claims of our founding creed than our action seems to be something that many have trouble grasping.

    I'd rather have the strength of character to not malign their commitment to America, and instead only call forth their commitment when America is at risk.
    By which you mean....? When you say "America is at risk" you mean of invasion? What about just plain old attack? How about economic attack? Given that the vast majority of them signed up during a time of war, and explicitly this war, how is it a maligning of their commitment to America that they be sent to do what they signed up to do?

    And cutting and running from something because it is difficult (which is what we are doing) requires no particular strength of character.

    Not throw them at whatever problem the world has at any moment with no plan, no exit strategy, and no reason to have been there in the first place. The weak-willed Americans are the ones who got us into this mess in the first place.
    No. The "weak willed Americans" are the ones who "can't take" 4,000 deaths when they don't know a single damn one of them and have never deployed. 4,000 over eleven years, and again, some of them were my friends, is not that friggin unsustainable or impossible or even anything except an incredible historical low. We took more dead in 24 hours in Normandy. I hear it all the time "Oh, America is tired of War". Really??? when the **** did America ever go to war? America didn't go to war. The Army and Marines went to war. America went to the mall. You're tired? Of what? Of hearing headlines about war on a news station as you flip through to the next knockoff of "People Sing While Other People Judge Them For It"?

    That might well be, but it doesn't make the stories untrue.

    What do you think their agenda is?
