    You haven't got a clue what I am.
    As well, you surely haven't a clue of what true conservatism is.

    Good. So the NEXT time you say anything about defining liberals, YOU as a conservative should remember the post above and understand that your "definition" is irrelevant.

    So Monte, what was the last foreign policy that you think the US was "right" with? Keeping in mind that your version of right and theirs are very different, as they're interested in furthering US interests and you're interesting in...not that.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Let me think. What is a "true" liberal?

    By STEVEN LEE MYERS, DAVID M. HERSZENHORN and RICK GLADSTONEMARCH 7, 2014

    MOSCOW — Russia signaled for the first time on Friday that it was prepared to annex Crimea, significantly intensifying its confrontation with the West over the political crisis in Ukraine and threatening to undermine a system of respect for national boundaries that has helped keep the peace in Europe and elsewhere for decades.

    Leaders of both houses of Russia’s Parliament said that they would support a vote by Crimeans to break away from Ukraine and become a region of the Russian Federation, ignoring sanctions threats and warnings from the United States and other countries that a vote for secession would violate Ukraine’s constitution and international law.

    Since that's not what I said, I don't have to.

    You're right, they did. When they felt their backs were up against the wall due to oil import restrictions, they responded by aligning themselves with Germany and attacking the U.S. at Pearl Harbor, HI. Could Russia make a similar move and their economy is destabilized due to crippling economic sanctions initiated by the West (U.S.) and significant loses in oil revenue from decreased exports to the EU?

    My answer: Y'all better hold on to your butts. This Ukrainian situation could go sideways real fast.

    Wow!

    Look, I can accept that you disagree with U.S. intervention around the world because it sometimes leads to a negative impression of the U.S. from some foreign countries, but wanting our foreign policies to fail is so anti-American. You may as well go join Edward Snowden wherever he is.

    I'll grant you that at times our government (led by the CIA) does things that in the long run turn on us, i.e., siding w/Saddam in the 70's until he rose to power then we turned on him, arming the Afghan rebels and making a war hero out of UBL only to take him out two decades later, working with the Pakistan government/intelligence only to start killing Pakistani citizens w/drone strikes (some of whom deserved it for siding w/Al-Qaeda and the Taliban). I'll grant you that all of these interventionist acts and more have come back to bite us in the butt, but I'd never want our foreign policies to fail. That's just so unpatriotic. I just want our policy makers to be smarter about the things they do.
