    Which brings up the question of how many wars have been fought to prove one leader or the other had balls, but then, that's another issue.

He also agreed that an extra 1000 US military advisors should be sent to South Vietnam to help train the South Vietnamese Army. Both of these decisions were not made public as they broke the agreements made at the 1954 Geneva Agreement."

    There's a big difference between 1,000 "military advisers" and a half a million US soldiers.

    Perhaps, but the Doctor who helped the US still rots in a Pakistani jail.

    False. That was just bs spewed all over fox news by bush's failed cronies. Bush never had any intelligence on bin laden. And obama hasn't reduced military spending at all. You do know there are two wars ending in his administration?

The drone fell "almost intact into the hands of self-defence forces" added Rostec, which said it had manufactured the equipment used to down the aircraft, but did not specify who was operating it.

    What? We wouldn't use drones all over the world just because we can. And certainly we'd consider that using them against a country more technologically advanced than the nations we've bombed to dirt in the ME may cause capture or destruction of the drone because they'd actually have counter measures. No, not at all.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Keep telling yourself that.

    I believe that both Presidents deserve credit where credit is due on OBL. Bush, for keeping up pressure on AQ, and allowing our intel community to gather intel that proved useful for President Obama. And Obama, for making good on the promise of getting him if possible.

    Bush never had any intelligence on bin laden.
    That simply is not true.

    And obama hasn't reduced military spending at all.
    Again not true.

    You do know there are two wars ending in his administration?
    Running because it's too hard is not ending with honor.
