Republicans 2001-2008: Kill every Arab we can!

Republicans after Obama kills Bin Laden: What's with all the fighting all the time?

You seriously can't make this shiat up.

Republicans forget strength and wisdom are not opposing values. It's not nessascary to invade entire countries, get thousands of American kids killed, all in order to... Well, that's the point. Nothing comes of it. Conventional wars have been over since Korea. Vietnam should have been proof enough. You don't win anything that way - you just get kids killed.

Clinton helped end the war in the Balkins without losing an American life. Obama had Bin Laden killed without invading a single country or losing an American life. Ghaddafi was toppled without us invading or losing an American life.

This idea of a WWII level army crashing on our enemies' shores and crushing them is over. It's dead. Go ahead, invade. Then get bogged down in occupying a country where you can't tell enemy from foe - soilders keep getting blown up from unseens, and the world starts to hate you. It's over. It doesn't work, and hasn't for a long time.

Strength and wisdom are not opposing values.

Let's cover the geopolitical situation once again. There are four major power blocks in Iran:
The religious groups and their civilian enforcers
The "elected" government
The military
The populace

These four groups are not friends. Yes, even though the President is mostly appointed by the Mullahs, the government and the religious leadership are constantly sniping at each other for advantage. Iran has been undergoing a slow-motion civil war for decades. The status quo has only been maintained because of the brutal memories of the last revolution and the Iran-Iraq war that followed. The only thing that can make these four enemies work together is a common, external enemy. The US and Israel keep giving them one.

In short, stop the saber rattling and the people of Iran will do your work for you. If you really must do anything, start by helping Iranian citizens stay anonymous on the Internet.

ROMNEY: But we can't kill our way out of this mess.

ROMNEY: Well, my strategy is pretty straightforward, which is to go after the bad guys, to make sure we do our very best to interrupt them, to - to kill them, to take them out of the picture.

DamnYankees: As someone in another thread said, this Romney campaign has truly become a grand experiment to see if someone can win an election with absolutely no principles or beliefs. I have absolutely NO idea what Romney would do if it was up to him if he was elected.


I'm not sure either, certainly not from the conflicting statements he has made; but he has a bunch of Bush neo-con advisers lined up. That's what concerns me the most about Romney, that we'll soon be embroiled in another pointless war.
