    Yes, indeed we should feel sad for just what is going on in that benighted country. But I would feel far sadder if we get involved to see the coffins and body bags of our own people coming back from there! Stay the @#$%^&* out of the bloody Middle East!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder if BO will take a page from Bill Clinton and have the cruise missiles attack known EMPTY warehouses?

    Empty warehouses and asprin factories, if I remember correctly. Yes, will probably be a Carter-esque or Clinton-esque response…

    Just wait until Hezbollah begins lobbing rockets into Israel in retaliation for a US attack on Syria.

    WMDs weren’t the issue. Geopolitical strategy was to isolate Iran by placing boots on the ground on either side of their border.

    Syria, today. Iraq for over the last 22 years since we became “involved”, and Afghanistan for a decade, as well as over into Pakistan. Yep, cruise and hellfire missiles are SOO much more “civilized”!!

    You make some interesting points, but the facts point otherwise. Ignoring any reference to socialist, because “socialist” and “democratic” are not synonymous….

    Mr. Kennedy did not start the Viet Nam conflict. That would have been Mr. Eisenhower. If you listen to any of Mr. Kennedy’s speeches, he noted constantly that war and its side effects were to be avoided at all costs. But you are correct that Mr. Johnson went hog-wild, as he was convinced that the war could be won, and was convinced of the “domino effect”. After going into Cambodia and Laos, without any direction or approval from Congress, Mr. Nixon “ended” the war by declaring victory and running away. I think it was called “peace with dishonor”.

    Ronald Reagan had Grenada. Look it up. He invaded it before he realized (was told by Tip O’Neill) that Grenada was a British protectorate, and got a lot of lip from Ms. Thatcher as a result. Also, note that more medals were awarded for “action” in Grenada than in all of WWII. After his breakfast, he started a spending war with the Soviet Union. Our strategy with the Soviets was started with Mr. Truman; you do this like you tend a garden: try to make conditions favorable for you and against the enemies. This involved NATO, SEATO, and other alliances. The Soviet Union was starting to crumble, and would have fallen all by itself regardless of who was in the White House, just as Iraq was failing and Saddam would have been overthrown soon after we invaded, if only we hadn’t invaded. (Only one source: you can find many others: “Imperial Life in the Emerald City”, by Chandrasakian.) Mr. Reagan did hurry the demise, but at the cost of deficit spending and huge increases in the national debt. Star Wars is still just a big hole that we continue to dump hundreds of billions into. We have far more to worry about with drones or one idiot with a briefcase (or backpack) than an easily-traceable barrage of ICBMs.

    And socialism had absolutely nothing to do with any of this.

    Otherwise, your points are quite valid.

    “Saddam Hussein shipped his WMDs to Syria, said an Iraqi general in his book. Democrats maliciously attacked Bush and lied about WMDs for ten years. Now you see them being used. Will Democrats apologize to Bush? Never. They are not too malicious and dishonest ever to apologize for anything.”

    Ah! I didn’t realize you are onguard. now we all know.

    Gosh, you learn something every day. So Franklin Delano Roosevelt started WWII. And Woodrow Wilson started WWI. Is that in the Texas school books?

    You’re all over the map, gesticulating wildly. I’ve heard better arguments from homeless persons. Really.
