    If old Bull Moose TR had of won in 1912, I doubt if he would have taken as long as Wilson to get us involved in WWI. But if Taft the isolationist had won in 1912, he would have kept it us out of WWI. But these are just my opinions.
    Pretty good ones though.

    No.

    I think the Vietnam War was avoidable if JFK would have listened to Eisenhower's warnings and advice and listened to his elders instead of his Harvard buddies known as the "Young and Brightest."

    Its amazing how you people are not concerned.....First of all we have a president who is totally incompetent especially when it comes to foreign policy.

    Then we have the middle east exploding with Israel and the Arabs at each others throats. then we have the Russians and the Ukraine fighting with the Russians taking out passenger planes then we have Iran trying to get a nuke...I haven't even mention North Korea....

    Then we have a POTUS who is epitome of the Manchurian Candidate and is clueless.......Other then that everything is just fine. .I don't know what it takes to get you pacifists attention..

    Rome burned and Nero played the fiddle or in the case the world burns and Obama plays the fiddle.

This is when the dangerous, toxic Islamist terrorists first gained control of the resources of an entire nation; from which to spread their poison across the rest of the Muslim world.

    All of the trouble that we have had ever since with Islamist terrorist all goes back to that one tragic act of incompetence on Carter's part.
    And support for militant Islamists ever sense.

    BTW: Do you remember what the 1960 Presidential campaign was mostly about ? Who would be more aggressive stopping Communist expansion in the world, Nixon (Republican) or Kennedy( Democrat)
    Americans were pretty split who would be better at the job and not turning the Cold War into a hot war. The voters went to the polls and along with the corpses from the Cook County cemeteries, JFK was elected. The rest is history.
    Since most Americans think that we should have been involved in WW11, I fail to see how that was ever a fair criticism of democrats, just a cheap election time talking point. Had FDR done the right thing and stayed out, he would have been criticised as an isolationist by the right.

    So I'm confused, democrats were wrong to get us involved in WW11, or not?
