    Does you mind ever change as variables in your life change, or are you stuck on all the same thoughts you had 8 years earlier?
    What changed? The cheney in that video was 100% right in his prediction of what would happen if you took out saddam and took over Iraq. The only thing that changed was before, 1994 cheney was right, after 1994 cheney was right. Sooo... what's your point?

    I don't suppose Putin is too concerned about what his people think in an opinion poll either--neither should Obama.
    And Putie doesn't have warhawks and isolationists from both parties biting at his heels either does he ?
    Putin is riding a populist wave, his sabre rattling and interactions with the west are WHY he's so popular-hes the warhawk.

    Cheney was the VP. I know you lefties can't stand him but its not terribly important. I just posted video with Biden saying we should go into Iraq.

    Now what?

    I posted a video waaayyy back now asking you to comment on Cheney's 1994 prediction of invading Iraq. And you are still running away from it. Why is that?

    Putin can do pretty much what he wants. But before America takes military action she better makes sure she has the majority of people on her side. If the presidents wants to take military action, he better explain it in good detail why it is necessary to the American people and start convincing people. Especially members of his own party. I would advise after talking to the American people he also goes to congress for their okay. I am sure the Republicans would give him their votes on this, but could he get his own parties votes? This isn't Libya.

    Iraq is such a mess, I hope advisers is all that is needed from us. But then you have a couple of shia clerics telling the U.S. to keep our advisers out of Iraq. That is all we need, the very people we are sending in advisers to help, them starting to kill our advisers. If it were me, I would be sitting on the sidelines for awhile longer. I wonder if old age hadn't turned this old warhawk into a dove, ala McGovern. Perhaps just more cautious than the rest, I mean having been there and done that. Abet from a different war.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah, me included. So tell me, who are our friends and who are our enemies when it comes to Iraq. I sure can't figure it out.

    Maybe some day it will happen but not during the last years of the Obama administration. Things will continue to deteriorate. I got to tell you with the way things are unfolding in the ME while several despots are rattling their swords and becoming aggressive because there is no "super power" to stop them, I just want all our men/women in uniform out of that area ASAP because they do not have a Commander in Chief in charge with their best interest. With the explosion of terrorism throughout whether they go by the name of ISSA, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, their goals are all the same. And that is a Fascist Islamic State that teaches all are infidels but them. I don't think the left side of the aisle has grasped that one yet and maybe they never will. Hell they are so political correct they can't fathom profiling.

    Beats me! That's why I decided not to concern myself with it, cause it'll probably change tomorrow! :

    Cheney is now shown to be correct in a 1994 interview. 9/11 however change the focus, making it more desirable to take the risk.



    Here is an interesting video from 2007:
