[QUOTE=bitonti]good idea - 5 years too late[/QUOTE]
How is it a good idea? You have been quoted (repeatedly) as saying "This War in Unwinnable, Period".
So how is ANY idea beyond "lets get out ASAP" a good idea?
[QUOTE=bitonti]One would think that after we butchered the native Americans and became the number one country in the world, we'd be past that sort of foreign policy.
good to see the waters run deep. [/QUOTE]
What an interesting spin. How very modern/liberal/soft of you Bit. I prefer to think that the forefathers who built the nation into what it is simply WON every war, every conflict and every issue they HAD TO, to make the United States the great nation it is today. Were people killed to do that? Yep, they were. Sucks to be one the losing side, I suppose. But we weren't......or were we Bit?
I suppose you'd prefer a World where North America was split into say, 30 nations, most Native American, no unity, frequent tribal strife (just like Africa to this day). Oh, and no power to stop Nazi'ism or Communism when those powers rose. But no worries, I am sure the Divided Natiev American Nations would have risen to that challenge just as well as the United States did, right Bit.
No wonder we can never seem to get on the same page Bit. You don;t want to win Wars, you just want to whine incessantly about how MEAN we have been to everyone, and how we deserve a comuppance. Well my friend, you and yours and your soft liberal ways are doing more to bring that comeuppance to reality than any external enemy we've ever faced. Soon, even the act of killing in self-defense, to preserve our Nation, our People and our way of life will be frowned upon.
And just as it always has, some OTHER culture will rise up, without the soft and whining "morals" of today's Liberals, and wipe us, and our culture, right off the face of the Earth.
Hmmm.....Islamic Fundamentalism. Yep, no fear about killing there, eh Bit. Maybe that other culture is already here. And as soon as you and yours make this Nation to soft to protect itself, well....game over man, game over, eh?
