    Excuse me but the only battles there's really been in the last 20 years for us to get involved in, was ones YOU CAUSED.

    You went into Iraq I and II and Afghanistan and we sent our boys over there with you.

    How dare you defile the memory of British Soldiers who went over there in support of you.

    And you accuse Obama of disrespecting your allies.

    Guess this was the part where honour was restored eh?

    I think you misunderstood what he meant. It didn't appear to me he was disparaging the British military, but rather the policies being championed now, and also that of Europe in general. The Brits have always been our best ally in modern times; no question there. And there are other countries as well who have been good allies.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Spending on the Military as a percentage of GDP. Notice European spending is less than half of that of the U.S.

    Why don't you go to the caves of Pakistan and tell those people to stop killing us since rhetoric trumps reality? You can and do bury your head in the sand regarding the enemy we face. Maybe if you had a loved one killed you would change your tune.

    Why is it that Conservatives seem to care more about you living than you do?

    Dude... you've spent probably over a trillion dollars fighting those guys up there, and we're no closer to defeating them today, then we were almost 10 years ago.

    I think we can afford to cut $200 Billion dollars of stuff we probably don't need for those operations anyway.

    Yes, in almost 10 years, 100 billion a year but that never was the poin. As stated this thread is about who is entitled to the money, the govt. or the people that earned it. 100-200 billion a year didn't create the debt we have today and the 3 trillion that Obama added to the debt in two years. Keep things in the right perspective.

    I have no problem cutting foreign aid from countries that hate us, most of whom are the dictators in the Muslim countries around the world that want to keep their power by imprisoning the hearts and minds of their own people.

    So there's nothing wrong with cutting it then?

    You didn't really address my point.

    Again: "I have nothing to say... time to spout my rhetoric"
