1812, Mexico, Spanish-American, Haiti, WWI, WWII, Korea, Santo Domingo. They’re pretty selective which wars they’re against. They’ve sponsored most of them. And they were for that other one, before they were against it.
If you don’t approve, you’re a “Taft isolationist.” Get used to that.
@ m m good, I don’t know about anyone else, but I find it pretty hard to pick a side when there are so very clearly no good guys in this fight.
Frankly, when you’ve got a terrorist supporting Syrian govt, vs the terrorists that are our sworn enemies, as far as I’m concerned, the correct move is: sell weapons to both sides, then sit back with some popcorn.
Whatever happens in Syria is at best a sideshow. Imagine this scenario: Obama decides that when it comes to Assad - some people just need killin’. He sends in a Carrier Group or two. In the Med, fine. But O’Dumbo also sent one into the Red Sea. Now imagine for second that Iran really is stupid enough to follow up on their threats. They send a couple of Q-ships out of the Persian Gulf, into the Red Sea, and those disguised fishing/merchant vessels just happen to carry a couple of Exocets each. A carrier group is well protected, but the Exocet can break the back of a ship pretty easily, so only one needs to get through. All of a sudden, things get really interesting, and far from just firing a few missiles into the desert, we’ve got another full blown war on our hands - just as we’ve abandoned huge piles of de-mil’ed equipment in Iraq and Afghanistan…
Started in October of 2002, Alphecca is an occasional blog of OPINIONS by a politically independent, rather conservative libertarian, gay gun-nut living in Vermont. I write about gun rights, politics, OTR, books, science and space, guns and the media’s bias against firearms, plus anything else I damn well please. Warning: I’m pro-Constitution, pro-gun, and pro-life. Your opinions about my opinions are welcome in the comments and as I always say, thank’s so much for stopping by.
