They’re trying to get him out of the house, you dork.
If Bush’s tactics were so admirable, why will we be getting a repeat soon enough? And if he was trying to break up the base in Afghanistan, what was his motive for invading Iraq? The invasion of Afghanistan was, at best, misguided, and at worst, a deliberate and malicious attack by the most powerful nation on earth against the weakest, in a cynical move to make the folks at home happy he was revenge killing. If he had negotiated at that time, instead of invading and shoring up their resolve, the Taliban would have dissolved. -It would be a mistake to make assumptions about my support for various US presidents. None of them are ‘my guy’.
I expect to see them high fiving each other as the Rascal departs with his bags.
Didn’t you notice in Vietnam that you can’t actually kill them all?
As for Afghanistan, the Brits and the Russians have been there before you. But Bush wasn’t interested in historical lessons.
Didn’t sound like a squawk to me.
Well, okay, but Aleric67 still mystifies me.
Pity those are the ones running your foreign policy, even under Obama. Sure do wonder what happened there.
Also uses 25% of the world’s resources and produces a vastly over the odds share of the pollution, plastics, waste, banking fraud, etc etc.
Growth at what cost to workers in third world countries?
What I was talking about was Jimmy Carter’s less aggressive foreign policy. That is where I mentioned humility—the humility of not thinking he should control the politics of the nations in the world just because he had bigger guns. It was a moment in time. I’m sorry the world missed it.
Maybe one of the Americans on the board can enlighten me. Yesterday I said:
“The best president the US never really had. If he’d managed to establish his idea of US humility, if Americans had learned to accept the fact that having the most firepower doesn’t actually confer extra importance on their 5% of the world’s population, that we are all equally human with an equal right to self-determination however many dollars we hold…but when it came to the point Americans couldn’t take the hurdle. And they still blame Jimmy for ever having pointed out the truth. Ah me.”
And Aleric67 responded:
“Umm, what?“I ask this in all seriousness and sincerity; Are you one of these New Progressives, who think America should be regarded and treated like the lowest of the low? I am genuinely asking.”
Can anyone explain why he equates the right to self-determination by the various nations of the world with America being “regarded and treated like the lowest of the low”?
Anyway, if we needed a concrete example of someone not able to take the hurdle….
A jacuzzi wasn’t a materialist possession in the 70s. It was the way we communed with nature.
