    You know, Carter's administration was responsible for sparking off the two most devastating wars of the 80's so if Obama is like Carter it doesn't make him sound all that weak.

    I think we would have been better off had he just gone and played a round of golf.

    Civilians... those people are insurgents!

    Oh yeah he's a golfing fool, you have the nerve to lie about it? Everyone knows it, the whole world knows it.

    Pick up the phone? Who's he gonna call? Al-Queda?

    It makes strategic sense if you think about it from a foreigners point of view.

    As soon as American boots hit the ground, it's an occupation. That gives the whackos in caves ammo to feed their followers to recruit people to try to kill us. As long as its American bombs and not boots, nobody can call it an "occupation."

    Fools rush to war, too bad its a lesson unlearned in this country.
    Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
