    FDR was a liberal too but the isolationist GOP kept him from acting when the war would have been more manageable. Yes the tough guys are needs when the **** hits the fan. Remember Nixon and Johnson both screwed up in Viet Nam and they where opposite points of view. Niether side has a monopoly on stupidity my friend.

    I guess it's a good thing that FDR didn't put sanctions on anyone that drove them to attack a harbor anywhere. I guess it's a good thing that FDR realized that economic sanctions are an act of war.

    Wait..

    Sorry about getting in this one on one spat but you are equally dead either way of you ar war and a Dem or a Rep is in office. War should be avoided at all cost but when we do lets hope we do it right.

    That's some pretty in-depth analysis right there.

    You're part right and I'm proud of you for doing that well:

    1) It's true that isolationists prevented American entry into WW2, until it was totally out of control and we lost over 400 thousand Americans because of it. It's false that was, "The GOP", that was soulely responsible for that...there as many Leftist isolationists.

    2) Johnson screwed the pooch in Vietnam...Nixon didn't.

    Sanctions are an act of war? I was unaware that the US is obligated to trade with any country.

    Well, if you get attacked for it, apparently somebody believed so.

    Good morning, Aunt Spiker.

    That would be justice! Ironic that there are few things smaller than a virus, but they are far more powerful than we are, as we have been shown from time to time! I hate to think that 1/4 of the world's population might die, though, but I believe that the universe is fair and balanced, and Karma always has the last word in rewarding - or punishing!
