    A War-Hawk for 2016?

    Do we need a war-hawk as the next President?

    I think we need someone who will roll up there sleeves and deal with Russia, Ukraine, the Mid-East, ISIS and North Africa. Each one of these areas plus a few other issues like Domestic Terrorism in Europe are some of Obama's failures. Foreign Policy used to be his strong suit. Not anymore!

    How many of you agree with me that we need a war-hawk as President? And no. I am not talking about Hillary.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    On a scale of one to ten, I agree with you somewhere in the negative 5 range.

    I'm not too surprised there.

    I don't know if we need a war hawk, but we do need someone who will garner respect from the international community, and can help rally them around a common cause.

    Havent we had enough of Obama? Do we want another 8 years of a President that continually prosecutes air wars and killings by drones?

    Excellent. Of your list I don't see Russia, Ukraine, the Mid-East, ISIS, North Africa or Domestic Terrorism in Europe as our problems except to the extent that some people are more susceptible than others to the military industrial complex's propaganda machine that keeps us meddling in other people's business for profit when we have more pressing problems at home that we should be spending money on.

    Oh yeah.....force respect by war...Good idea. You mean to tell me the world doesn't respect us for torturing people? For having the largest amount of people being incarcerated? For having the highest cost for healthcare? For having the most obese citizens in the world? For having the most school shootings?

    No way. A war-hawk is the last thing we need for 2016. After nearly a century of perpetual war, it's about damn time we bring our boys home and stop nitpicking fights overseas.

    A War-Hawk for 2016
    not only no, but **** no.

    also, i have a proposal. back in the middle ages, the king and noblemen led the troops into battle. perhaps we should return to that way of doing things. also, wartime tax rates should be in effect whenever we are at war.
