Every time I hear that, I remember the exact same historical context as you. Yet, Republicans will continue to beat Democrats about the head over their willingness to seek peaceful solutions first, and use war only as a last resort. (Of course, many of them got it wrong when it came to authorizing the War in Iraq.)




    I rest my case.

    One problem with "since the 60's", JFK was a hawk, his brother Bobby was even a bigger hawk.

    Both the Democrats and Republicans were anti communist and pro military. During the Presidental election JFK vs. Nixon it came down to who would do a better job at stopping communist expansion in the world ?

    It wasn't until 1970 when radical leftist (The New Left) began coming under the Democrat tent and first they hid behinde the "liberal" label when you started seeing anti-military and an anti war movement against any war that would be fought against communism or any form of socialism with in the Democrat Party.

    It was during the 1970's when the true liberals with in the Democrat Party started leaving the party and came under the GOP tent, they were called neoconservatives. JFK Liberals who were anti communist and refused to surrender during the Cold War.

    Now not all liberals fled from the Democrat Party. There still were Democrats who refused to surrender and wanted to continue fighting the Cold War. You had liberals like Rep. Charley Wilson (D-Tx.) who remained in the Party. Yep the same cocain sniffing, skirt chasing, partying Democrat that the movie "Charley Wilson's War" is based upon. The same liberal Democrat who got Congress to support the Mujadeen in Afghanistan by arming them with Stinger missiels.


    History rest it's case.

    Sorry but you just can't bury you head in the sands and hope the problems just go away.

    Nobody is denying that there are problems in the world. There are always problems in the world. That said, the idea that we're on the cusp of World War III (a globally encompassing cataclysm) is absurd.

    Can you imagine the destruction that would happen if nuclear devices were exploded in our major cities in this country? It would be devestating.

    I frankly don't see the problems you apparently do.

    Seems like there's a small war starting, pausing, or stopping every few years in various places around the world, and so far it seems to affect few except those directly involved.


    It's ****ed up but unless it directly affects us I don't think we care.

    Never have we faced the problems around the world we face today and the worse thing is this administration is clueless on what to do about them.

    What about Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan? Oh wait, those were only Bush Fires.

    And that is the same since they were invented. Nothing new here. How's the poll working out for you?

    Really? We've certainly faced similar, numerous times.
