    How little he knew, but he was basically right.
    I think that this whole Islamic extremest thing has to be fought politically, not militarily..
    Our last 3 to 5 responses were not right.
    We have a UN , lets use it for its intended purpose..
    I would tend to agree with you, except for the UN a corrupt and inept organization currently being run by dictators.

    Christians have never attacked us. Muslims have committed more than 15,500 deadly terror attacks around the world SINCE 911. We should take out Iran's nuke facilities before it gets REALLY ugly. Saddam Hussein threatened to take us off the map with his wmd. We took him seriously.

    I disagree war is bad for the econ. We had TWO wars under W and the econ was amazing until liberals took over CONgress in 07.
    You are a very wise chickie!!

    That's the least we can do for Israel!! After all they have fought shoulder to shoulder with the US in every military conflict since their inception in '48. Google "Israeli Heros Of the Korean, Viet Nam, Iraq, and Afghanistan Wars.... They are our greatest ally. GWs wars were a blessing to us all. Let's hope that Obama does as he is told and keeps them going forever. Both Israel and the US are dependent on war since they are two of the worlds leading manufacturers of war implements. We should never allow any competition in this area. Remember, every time a cruise missle is fired into a nation of muslim extremists, or some ordinance fired into a toyota truck full of Palistinians MONEY is being made by someone here at home and also in our beloved friends land of Israel. That is good bussiness.

    Re: When should the United States of America go to war?

    Other question is HOW. do we really need to OCCUPY these countries? IMO, a cruise missle or 2 each week, slowly but surely taking out their ability to defend themselves, should be enough. I say we start with the Saudi palaces....

    I say we pull out of the middle east and the rest of the world and mind our own business. We can make a better and more secure US and world if we try to get along with nations and trade with them instead of forcing how to live.

    Blowback is a bitch.

    Yes they have. You should do your research.

    Muslims have committed more than 15,500 deadly terror attacks around the world SINCE 911. We should take out Iran's nuke facilities before it gets REALLY ugly. Saddam Hussein threatened to take us off the map with his wmd. We took him seriously.
    So this is a war on Islam, is it?

    War has been a part of the human race from the very beginning.

Throughout this, the human race has not only survived but thrived. The cycle of war and rebuilding keeps our species vital and evolving; we are a better species for our history of warfare and it is by warfare that our species will continue to improve in the future.

    I know the horror and grief of warfare as well as any man who has never been in a warzone can. I have lost family and friends in war. I have seen disabled veterans and photographs of the children maimed and killed in warzones. And contrary to what many people believe, I do value human life. But in this, like in all things, I see things in terms of the long term and the big picture. Blood makes the grass grow and guts make the grass green. War is a necessary part of the course of human development.
