It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Meanwhile we need more teachers, doctors, etc and we just commissioned a new nuclear sub. What in the hell do we need that for? When Iran decides to go to sea? Lol give me a break.
Also do YOU know where all our dollars go to? Are dollars go straight back to feeding China, our economical enemy because as a nation we are broke, we are to fat all over, but we need to make cuts where it counts, and our government needs to protect us physically, financially, and mentally, something that Obama is trying his damnest to do. He is even trying to reason with conservatives. Can you think of one time Bush Jr. tried to do this? Bush Sr. did it, and Republicans, and the US in general voted him out, and then you got "big bad" Clinton which as far as I can tell Republicans are just festered that he got a little brain and was slickest president we had in a long time.
@apdst Having bases because it is strategically convinent with a government and people that is not hostile towards you and the way we are doing it in the middle east are two totally different things. We already have bases in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, we have no reason to keep a major amount of troops in Afghanistan or Iraqi. Some MPs and a small base in each country sure, and that is what will eventually happen in both countries, but just like in Germany, Japan, etc those bases don't just serve US troops, they serve our allies and troops for those countries as well.
