You keep forgetting the history and timeline...Hussein invaded quwait...our initial operation was our business...Clinton and our armed services continued ongoing operations there...bush jr. continued operations there with armed services and accomplished the task of removing the military regime...and initiated redeployment and drawdown...and guess what? The people who live there "our interests" are thriving today...
Your argument is nice...but not based in reality...sometimes force is necessary for a greater good...and sometimes it is necessary to use military action against a military tyrant...
Here is why aye write that your argument is nice....why should anyone be killed by an oppressive government? Why should there be killing at all? Why should anyone have to be rescued by another country or government.
...if there has been another way throughout history to have a military regime step down and a tyrant willingly give up his power through anything but military action aye challenge you to provide a list because aye doubt you can find much.
...and you already acknowledged the benefits the Kurds are doubling down on because of our operations in Iraq....if aye'm not mistaken--that is a GOOD thing---so, thank you.
THEY ask him to step down. YOU go and kill him? NOT your place, but THEIRS. KILLING people is BAD. DON'T kill people unless YOU have to. YOU don't have to. You seem to NOT understand that. Maybe its better for some groups, but YOU still KILLED people. Caps ARE silly.
I can't believe I'm about to say this, but you need to listen to Ron Paul. I might rather put up with the rest of his craziness if we would just stop invading people- for the love of f.uck.
Seriously, man Ron Paul is not crazy...he is a constitutionalist. Aye would enjoy seeing him debate Obama... Aye think Paul would make a great cic.
