    Well that's certainly true, and both Bush and Obama ME policies have done that, and I've been a steadfast critic of it.

    Your attempt to stifle dissent with your false characterisation, will not prevail.
    That's nothing but a pompous way of admitting you can't refute my arguments.

    Otherwise, I don't know why you're speaking in the third party at times
    I don't know why you are claiming I did. I don't recall every speaking here as anything but myself, except when I was quoting someone else. Next you'll be accusing me of using the royal "we."

    and at other times talking about other posters presumably which you consider to be "collectivist dim bulbs"
    You presume too much. You have no idea who I may be referring to by that phrase, unless I direct it at a specific person, and I would never do that. I'm content to leave it to other posters to decide where the description applies.

    while attempting to enlighten me on the boards rules of civility, lol.
    I am not interested in enlightening you about anything. I said only that those rules should be respected.

    That smoke screen cannot disguise the very real problems with US foreign policy that you choose to justify, I'm sorry.
    You don't need to apologize to me for your arguments. But if you think you owe anyone else here an apology for them, feel free to direct it their way.

    Ok, I read no further than the first line. If you truly believe that Obama HATES America, then you're blinded by hate yourself, and I haven't any further use for you, bye match.

But surely you have seen my support of Edward Snowden (I know, who's that right?) and my criticisms of domestic spying, the militarisation of our police, and the continual attacks to our civil liberties. I do care about domestic policy, but I suppose my thorn in the side is our FP, and I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT consider criticism of domestic policy as anti-American, or any dissent for that matter as anti-American. That distinction is for the partisan at heart, and I am most definitely not a partisan, for what that's worth.
    I was hoping someone would respond.
    Yes, I know who Edward Snowden is, and why he is out of the country. I think we're on the same page when it comes to the issues you mention.
    Personally, I don't consider criticism of foreign or domestic policy as un American. It seems to me that it is un American to fail to exercise our first amendment rights, but then, that's just my opinion.

    I already cited the "bitter clingers" comment. Another would be his comments on Christianity vs Islam.

    Just so we're on the same page, then, here's his "bitter clinger's" comment:

    You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
    and, as we just saw, his comments on Christianity vs. Islam are about how atrocities were once committed in the name of Christianity, just as they are being committed in the name of Islam now, and that neither religion should be condemned due to what some have done in its name, or words to that effect.

    Now, just what is wrong with those statements? How do they "tear down this nation?"

    Kudos to him to accruing the acumen to become the first world leader in nearly a century to personally step up to the challenge of warfare, the fact that his aims are a bit off-target aside.
    I very much doubt that "Romania" sold weapons ti isil. That weapons could have been sold by Romanians or from out of the country is quite possible. Then it would be criminals and the question would only be why the bureaucracy did not pick it up and which persons it was. If the EU puts pepressure on the Romanians will do something. probably no more than Germany did against the Siemens corruption or the bribes paid the Greeks to buy weapons etc.
    But something.

    Because he's speaking poorly of his nation and its citizens.

    Lol. The Snowden parenthetical was suppose to be a joke of sorts. I know you're well aware of who he is, it's just that that news cycle is so far past. And yes, I get your opinion, which is all any of us are offering up.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
