The US and Britain say Israel has a right to protect itself from rocket attacks from Hamas, but warn about the dangers of the conflict escalating into a ground war, as Obama says it would put Israeli soldiers at risk of death or injury.
War can cause a risk of death or injury. You don’t say, Obama?
With the administration’s wanton waste of our taxpayer dollars, we are going to have to make some choices. It’s time to bring our troops home from Afghanistan.
Our whole mission there has been a wasted effort. Watch this.
Iran looks like it wants to tussle. The US is more than game. Iraq was more of a threat, and we rolled them in a matter of hours. Iran will take less time. Unless we station troops and move in and try to set up housekeeping.
I’d suggest a blitzkrieg, sink their ships, demolish their military assets, and all of their suspected nuke sites… Then get the Hell out of dodge before the dust settles.
George Bush’s big folly was the Mission Accomplished sign while we still had boots on the ground. Let’s not relive that mistake.
Take all US Forces in the Stan, get them ready to roll… Then wait for Iran to blink first. The moment they twitch, nail them. Follow Sun Tsu’s advice. Hit them first, and hit them so hard that they can’t hit back. Don’t look at the explosions, just walk away. Done. Then when China talks Shit, we can just crack our knuckles and grin.
We need to GTFO of Libya. We have nothing to do with Libya and we can’t afford to get involved in their internal struggle. Libya has a history of American Hatred, so they don’t even want our help and they certainly don’t deserve it. As much as I don’t like that crack-pot over there… he’s over there and has made no threats against the USA.
But what I find most repugnant, is the hypocrisy of this administration.
“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.
As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.”
-Barack Obama, December 20, 2007
So tell me… Where does Obama get off doing this? In his own words, these actions are wrong. If this was Bush doing this… Bush would be the most vile and despicable person in history. But Barry gets a pass… even if his excuse for doing this mirrors Bush’s reason for Iraq.

OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’…
MARCH 19, 2003
BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the… world from grave danger’…
I don’t know… maybe I’m just not nuanced in geopolitical matters… I mean, I only took a semester of it in college so I am no expert by any means. But I do know the difference between right and wrong. And being in Libya is flat out wrong. We need to GTFO.
Wait… this isn’t a WAR… It’s a Kenetic Military Action. Oh, well then. Never mind.
