    My dude, we never officially DoWed Iraq or Afghanistan, thus do you think we should impeach Bush as well?

    not stalking you, probably just bored enough to respond
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, no I won't. It can no longer be the responsibility of the U.S. To be the world's enforcer. We can no longer afford to do it, and the sooner we pull back, the better we'll be able to get our own house in order.

    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Yes, yes you will. But, hey, don't take my word for it. You'll see.

    U.S. Seeks UN Resolution Authorizing Strikes on Libya

    Frankly, I am surprised that the 'Golfer n chief' could fit in the request.


    pfft, too little, too late.

    No, I won't. It will make no difference to me if they screw it up, with respect to how I feel about what we should do. I have already accepted that, without our leadership, the world's downtrodden may not do as well.

    I think paying down our debt is more important than expensive adventures.

    Blood for oil has been the policy in Libya for a long time now. It has only recently been a "problem" because Libyans want freedom and the fighting is causing disruptions to the oil market.
