    He can send the Wisconsin Guard in I guess then.

    And we weren't attacked by Iraq when Clinton was POTUS. Of course we weren't attacked or even provoked by Iraq when Bush was POTUS either, yet he decided to go to war against Iraq.

    If Bush didn't attack Iraq a dozen years ago, do you think we would have any business in Iraq today?

    Why are you attempting to make this personal when it has nothing to do with the topic? I have not advocated anyone serving in a war so the experience of me or my kids is not relevant. People who do advocate putting others in harms way are the ones you should be asking that question as it is relevant to them.

    I will take your bet. How much are you putting up?

    I could care less if muslums kill each other. None of those people are "good". I don't believe it's possible for us to establish a good government in any part of that world. Even our closest allies in that region are our enemies.

    We certainly shouldn't start trying to change governments all over the world by force. History has proven that doesn't work out so well.
    They aren't content, they are a highly invasive metastatic cancer-and they have already said they will behead Obama.
    They picked the fight, not us.

    -Again, if you haven't noticed, the future GOP is going to be a White/Hispanic middle class Southern party. No North Eastern "Banker-Esq" candidate is ever going to be elected by such people in the South.

    -The North East US is alien to the South and the SouthWest and those are the people who elect GOP candidates. The Northeast GOP is dying if not yet officially dead.



    Such is why Chris Christie is essentially a joke candidate. He cannot win in the South or SouthWest. He's ****ed as is Walker.
    Thats a lovely opinion.

    It's very relevant. Now, what branch of service are your kids serving in?

    Since when did you care about Obama's head?

    there are many Americans who have said that they would like to see Obama dead. Should we bomb their houses?

    I'm sure that there are people in every country who have uttered vague threats towards Obama, should we bomb every country?

    They picked the fight, not us.
    You seem to be confused.

    ISIS didn't attack us, we attacked ISIS.

    For that matter, Iraq didn't attack us either. We attacked them.
