    close. Obama mishandled Benghazi, or more to the point he had Valeria take charge while he went to bed. He needed his beauty sleep to go to Vegas and be on the Late Night Talk shows. I wonder wich is a bigger LIE, Spontaneous and YouTube or I did not draw the red line?

    President Johnson explained that North Vietnam had attacked a US ship in open water, a clear Act of War. Every US newspaper said Johnson had to respond. Or else. And so we got 500,000 US soldiers in Vietnam, more than 50,000 eventually killed, millions of Vietnamese killed, and massive debt.

    As Colin Powell explained, Johnson lied about Tonkin to get the US entangled in Vietnam, but this time was different. Saddam really had a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons that were almost operational, so the US had to invade without delay. Every US newspaper agreed, this times it’s different. Johnson lied, but Powell is telling the truth. We’ve checked. This time it’s real.

    And now, as Obama keeps saying, Johnson and Powell lied, but this time is different. This time it’s real. And every US newspaper agrees: Obama has solid proof that the Syrian government has murdered more than 100,000 of its own citizens, and killed more than 1,429 by illegal methods (all the proof and evidence is classified, but we don’t need to see it since we know it’s true), so the US has to use cruise missiles to topple the government just as it toppled the Libyan government. This time is different. This time it’s real.

    (Don’t believe those Syrians and Russians who say it isn’t. Syrians and Russians are all descended from Cretans—cf. Titus 1:12.)

    Left – right – both “man” or humanity and both subject to man’s shortcomings.
    The conservatives are particularly biased and bigoted in their hatred of our president..
    disgusting, I find this to be !
    letter from Michael…………….which proves , IMO, what I say about both right and left..
    We need a lot more honesty and balance…

    @Adrian Snare

    Dude, you are wrong concerning your take on conservatives and the president.

    We do NOT hate Obama. His POLICY, his ability and seeming willingness to lie about every event to gain political advantage and the complicit media that backs him up because he is the first “black” president and therefore to “big” to fail is where the angst comes in.

    YOU however, seem to want to play the race card at every opportunity. YOU seem to want to classify your fellow citizens into groups according to race and disparage any and all ideas that are not like your own. Who’s the bigot?

    We need to take a clue from the first money printed in this country (although the motto was not about personal things0 which said “Mind Your Business” .

    When Obama drops the bombs and this country is once again deep into a war effort. When the bills need to be paid and the President says taxes will have to rise dramatically. When the terror attacks begin in major cities in this country. Will you still love this pretender?

    the countries continuing involvement in international affairs using force to “stop the spread of communism” or to “combat radical terrorists” , or (the most despicable to me) to “facilitate the spread of democracy” needs to come to an end.

    Our very existence is predicated on the idea the the “people” are free to choose the type of government they want. How is it that we feel the need to force others to follow the path we took? The are many forms of government that work as well as our “democratic republic”.

    Let the UN do their job for once and if they can’t then disband the UN.

    lonecat, in case you haven’t seen it, I think this commentary on the current situation is right on in many ways:
    The GWB and Co. legacy

    @Michael wme
    Rachael Maddow spent some time talking about the various wars going back to 1964. She showed Wayne Morse who was one of two who voted against President Johnson’s resolution.
    We need more Wayne Morses.

    “Let the UN do their job for once and if they can’t then disband the UN.”

    Past time to do that, I’d say.

    Why don’t you guys just stay THE EFF out of the Middle East? A lesson learned so well by the Brits, some time ago! “Operation Iraq Liberty”? “OIL”? Are you NUTS?
