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.
    To be honest I dont blame the events in ME on any American-because this goes back much longer than we can imagine. American Presidents like to think they can change that region but they can't. We dont even have the frame of reference. However-I can and DO hold our President responsible for the things he can and does control, like withdrawing troops of leaving the ME to extremists who WILL attack us.

    Im less concerned about "protecting" our military by withdrawing them. The point is to fight them there so we dont have to fight them here. Our military WANTS to do this. Its polictics-and the willingness to lose for political purposes that drives me nuts.

    I think a particularly fitting outcome from our "open minded" liberals would be to ship them to the west bank, or ISIS, or Afghanistan. Let them get acquainted, surely they will come to an understanding.

    I think we should ship the warhawk conservatives that "want" to fight a war over there and let them do it. That would be YOU. Get to it. There are volunteer spots just for YOU, oh wait, you're to busy on an internet chat board.

    They dont have any power. VP's dont set policy, they are mouthpieces for the president. Thats what they do.
    But if the criteria for being a good leader is always being right-you are going to be disappointed.

A Gallop poll in April of 42 had 80% of Americans steadfastly against US involvement in another world war. A huge impediment for any president. Simultaneously, Germany was being provoked as well, only Hitler knew better than to take the bait. The day after the anticipated attack on PH, the same Gallop poll nicely reversed.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    This is always just so clever. Obama went into Libya why? He aided FSA why? Im sorry but your silly notion that only those in the military should have a voice is insane.

    I dont want to lose the war on terror to muslim fundamentalists, why do you?

    Who's talking about VP power? You brought up Biden to bolster your argument that democrats supported the invasion.

    If you don't want to lose the war, what are you doing here? You should volunteer to go over there. Hurry up you stud you. What are you doing on an internet chat board, go win the war. What are you waiting for?

    Silly and ignorant. We cut off oil to Japan BECAUSE THEY WERE INVADING AND RAPING AND KILLING IN CHINA. You dont appease people who do things like this-it never ends well.

    That's hardly all Roosevelt did, that was just the part congress was privy to and supported.
