    Evidently for people like US Conservative, others people's children are not as important as a political ideology.

    Also the insult 'chickenhawk' is so meaningless. Scott Walker could be the greatest coward of modern times and it wouldn't have any impact on whether his opinion that we should put troops on the ground is valid.

    They never are. And that is the pity of it all.

    You OK with that?
    9/11 was nearly 14 years ago. It's not like they do that on a regular bases.

    I'm not sure if the Boston incident was ever connected to anything other than the two brothers.

    **** happens, and it's going to continue to happen, regardless of what we do in the middle east. I suspect that it's our actions in the middle east that tends to provoke it.

    So you are taking at jabs if someone doesn't have any family members ever in the service and yet you have no problem supporting Romney who far as I know has never had any member in the military.
    You just keep those goalposts on wheels I suppose.

    What a joke.

    Now, had there been a Status of Forces agreement in place, then there would be far more US troops in country there, and likely that the Militant Islamic Fundamentalists would have stayed away, avoiding a conflict with those US forces, but, since there isn't, US troops get to be pulled out, the situation become far worse, before they are sent back in to retake ground already paid for once. Such foolishness. Would have been such better situation had SoF agreement been in place. Oh well.

    Not only that, with forces in Afghanistan and in Iraq, I'm thinking that it would have put far more restrictions on Iran's actions, boldness, and support of their support for the Shia flavor of Militant Islamic Fundamentalists, all of which have made the ME situation far worse now than it was.

    Yup. Just means that when the US does finally go back in, and I'm pretty sure that we are going to have to, that it'll be all the more difficult, and cost all the more in blood and treasure.

    Yup. I wonder. Would that make Obama our Neville Chamberlain? Do you think?

    How many more flag draped coffins are you willing to accept to fix a problem somewhere else.
    This presupposes that there actually ARE other options, but with the barbarity with which the Militant Islamic Fundamentalists conduct themselves and their affairs, doesn't seem like there are very many viable options. But, please, if you have some, or know of some, I think it interesting to learn more about them.

    Exactly. Question is now, how bad does it have to get, how long will it be, how much larger and more powerful do we allow the Militant Islamic Fundamentalists to get before there is sufficient political will and foresight to beat the cancer back? I'm thinking that it won't be on Obama's watch.

    And I too think it likely that it'll hit home again. This time it won't be airliners, but it'll be something else. Hopefully not something worse and more permanent damage. Weaponized smallpox or weaponized measles or other WMD immediately comes to mind.
