    Did you even read my second to last sentence?

    You see... the Leftists are hypocrites. On the one hand they vote to send troops to war, then stab them in the back for political expediency. They protest for America to enter conflicts we have no national interest in and where there is the might and brighty Europeans looking at it in their very own backyard.
    Uhhhhh.... The same could be said about you..

    I look at this, and remember clearly the anti-American Left and their behavior. I just would like to see some consistency, or some sober reflection. BUT... this won't happen because you folks have a moral compass that is like a cartoon clock zipping around at light speed.

    No because that is what they implied. There is no way to effectively target people who are hidden amongst civilians from air with little to no chance of creating collateral damage. You may be able to hit a training camp, or a government compound, but you are not going to end a multi-faction civil war with airstrikes unless you are willing to kill a hell of a lot of civilians in the process.

    Not our problem....I sympathize with the people being hurt, but in no way should we get involved.

    We've been through way too many armed conflicts in the past decade....enough is enough. We have a 16 Trillion dollar deficit...that is far more important than what some other country is doing across the globe.

    Doesn't make his "rant" look stupid. You think you are the only gulf war vet out there? Re-think things if so.

    That's hindsight reasoning, though. At the time, nobody in the high levels of US military command was talking about that.

    I figured it out: You have no idea what "carpet bombing" means.
