    Yes, the neocons have done us soooo much good! Oh, right, Benghazi with four unfortunate deaths is FAR more a screw up and cover up than the lies, well documented in 2002 by William Rivers PItt and Scott Ritter, in a published BOOK, that got over 5,000 Americans and a couple hundred thousand civilians killed in Iraq. Leave Syria to Syrians, especially as we have no clue who “the good guys” are! It does hold the same promise as our “successes” in Iraq and Afghanistan though.

    Still talking about 2002 huh? Maybe after 15 years you will rejoin the present.

    Btw…. I can tell the libs here are getting REAL nervous about the Benghazi hearings coming up this week.

    The Coverup is about to be exposed.

    Wow. You people are idiots. This is really happening and you’re arguing about a ten year old war and a manufactured controversy.

    Dude, you talk about Jimmy Carter when it suits you. 2003 (when we entered Iraq) is specifically germane to this conversation.

    That’s what they say before EVERY war…

    Every day there are horrific things of at least equal tragedy, and we utterly ignore them. It’s my experience that every time we come in with guns a lazing (or gums a-flapping), we make things worse in the long run. This whole thing smells of folks who think we have to be the bosses of the world, and they can’t stand it when we’re not in on the fight. Yes, people are dying, and yes, the current regime there is bad news. They’ve been oppressive for decades. Will we lose influence if we don’t help the “winning” side in this? Our influence is so low there, it hardly matters. Getting involved won’t help people there and won’t enhance our position there. Having said that, I’m all for sending humanitarian aid.

    The reason people study history in the present is to avoid the mistakes we made in the past when we plan for the future. So, yes, we’re still talking about 2002 (sic) so that after 15 (sic) years we won’t follow the demands of the chicken hawk neocons and begin a fresh disaster. And the “coverup”? Does anyone REALLY think there’s anything there but some manufactured scandal the right wing is pushing? Seriously?

    Let me guess…you were completely silent about the more than 50 lives lost at embassies during Bush II ’s administration?

    Yes, Kit, there really is something there. The action (or inaction in this case) of the State Department should be investigated if for no other reason than to prevent a recurrence of this type of fiasco. Also, I’m sure you remember the multiplicity of stories that were presented by our government officials immediately after Benghazi. It puts the credibility of the administration in the same basket with the gentlemen that said “I am not a crook” and “I did not have sexual relations with that woman…”.

    Why raise taxes when you can just shut down a few dozen Social Security offices, and make people drive 80 miles to get to the nearest one?

    Must give the Republican and Democratic legislators a sense of peace to see their efforts to keep Americans fighting with one another instead of writing to politicians. If we actually sent letters to THEM instead of going head to head with one another, Libtards vs Rethuglicans, Demoncrats against NeoCons, they might have to respond or do something.
    You guys are neighbors. You’re countrymen. The way you folks talk to each other, it sounds like you’d like to see each other just die so they’d shut up and go away.
    I’m taking Lady Liberty’s position on this one. She’d not want to see us turn on each other like this, and I find it painful too.
    The lessons of history on War are pretty stark. Marcus Aurelius, Sun Tzu, Wellington, Sheridan, and many more have written on it. You don’t go to war if you don’t have to.
    You definitely should NOT go to war with your neighbors.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    I heard the story yesterday that it was the rebels that used sirin nerve gas. The White House says it was unlikely.
