    Yes, it is. Not my problem you don't know what your words mean.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Just a reminder of what you actually said:

    I say we just kill'em all and don't take a side.

    I think you knew what I meant, you just wanted to be messy for some reason.

    I would not turn our back on Israel. I just wouldn't fight a war for them. Share our intelligence with them. Cross train with their units. However, I can't say it is our responsibility to spearhead a war in Syria.

    I agree not "spearhead" but if we are going to supply weapons we need to be up front about it.

    Like it or not, that is the administration policy. No longer do we attempt capture of high value enemy, rather in place, we now just drone them.

    Not sure that is so. But keep in mind actions mean more than words. Syria will largely have to sort this out themselves. That's as it should be.


    But I do oppose the drone strikes.

    Killing Nazis during WW2 was genocide?

    We didn't say kill them all, or even try to. We tried to beat them. Prisoners or wounded mp removed them from the battle field. And frankly where you have a country in a civil war, all sides fighting each other, commenting on a post that says we can't tell who is best for us, your comment includes a lot of people.

    Well, the MP's didn't remove all of the prisoners. There were a bunch of them executed on the spot by American personel.

    But, hey...believe whatever twisted piece of logic you want, if you think it makes you right and makes you feel better.
