    As I said, if you want to increase spending and the funds to pay for it, Romney is your man.

    Some forget the goals of Bin Laden and al Qaeda, and continue to try to fulfill their prophecy:

    "In 2004, Bin Laden released a tape to Al-Jazeera where the former head of Al Qaeda laid out the purpose of the 9/11 attacks, and the organization’s goals. “We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah,” Bin Laden said.

    In other words, the goal was not to defeat America in battle. The goal was not to bleed American resolve on the battlefield. The entire purpose of Al Qaeda’s attacks on America was to bleed America’s economy dry. By that standard, even in death, Bin Laden has clearly won."

    The supposed "concentration camps" in Bosnia to bolster U.S. intervention?

    These reports were knowingly falsified so NATO invasion was justified.

    they're about as trustworthy as Rense.com or Prisonplanet.com.
    That story is true. There were no concentration camps in Bosnia or Serbia.

    Absolutely not - I think the idea of sending troops to Syria is deplorable. Based on the fantastic work done with bringing democracy and stability to Iraq and Afghanistan (sarcasm), American troops in Syria would be a disaster there and bring about more Islamists because America would be invading a third Muslim nation, and under Islam that is justification for retaliation.

    No, let the UN or other nations deal with Syria. We don't need to be spending money on another war that doesn't impact us.

    The plan to destbilize Syria comes from Clean Break Strategy in Israel circa 1998.

    Yes -- let's rent our military out to the highest bidder.

    Further, the benefits we derive from being a global superpower far outweigh the costs -- and the costs associated with military deployment we ultimately get back in some form of economic benefit.

    That's what we did in Iraq. After 35 years of exile, Big oil is now free to return to Iraq thanks to the US military!!!

    Is that why the Chinese got the first big oil contracts out of Iraq?

    That aside -- we did not invade Iraq because of oil.
