ThrobblefootSpectre: DrPainMD: What I believe is irrelevant. On December 7, we were two weeks away from bombing Japanese troops, and they knew it.

So what you are saying is  after they bombed us, we started fighting back.  Okay.


What I'm saying is that we started building air fields and training pilots a year and a half before December 7th. We would have started bombing them in the middle of December whether or not they bombed Pearl Harbor. Attack was imminent, which gave Japan a valid reason to bomb Pearl Harbor.

Might be cheaper then sending in commando unit, especially if there were loses.  Also, there might have been timing/window of opportunity issues.

Cheaper yet would be for us to mind our own business. Can't biatch about them killing us if we're going to be killing them.

lots of people had that opinion before they bombed pearl harbor.

You can't possibly believe that we were minding our own business up until Pearl Harbor.

Actually, we pretty much were. Certainly our hands weren't clean in our own hemisphere, and the oil and scrap embargo on Japan was hurting them plenty; but the US didn't have much to do with all the colonies in Asia or the dustup in Europe prior to WWII.

You can believe what you like, of course, and being you, you likely will; but everything prior to Pearl Harbor was all on Europe. That was THEIR fault.

You mean helping the Afghans fight the evil soviet commies then ditching them with the repair bill might have somehow fostered ill content toward our country?


Helping the Afghans fight the soviets? Hell, we started the whole thing. There was no fight before we created Al Qaeda, ummm... I mean, the Mujahadeen.

I'm so behind on the talking points anymore.

No it's only bad if we can't build McDonald's and and Coca-Cola plants. Oh and don't forget let them make Nike's for $2 a day.


If Obama intervenes, it is bad and he should not have intervened. If Obama fails to intervene, it is bad and he should have intervened. If Obama asks us to decide what to do, it is bad and he is an indecisive and shirking his responsibilities as a leader. If Obama doesn't ask, it is bad and he is a would-be emperor.  If Obama now does whatever we already said he should do, back when he wasn't doing it, it is bad and he is trying to make us look bad.

Intervening in Somalia is good because it's a lawless shiathole where they have a documented history of being assholes and supporting regimes that have a documented history of trying to hurt us.

Intervening in Syria is bad because it's a first-world nation with a morally dubious government, but a government that is fully intact and friendly with other nearby states that are gnawing at the bit hoping we or Israel decide to intervene so they can launch World War 3. And any 'documentation' that the government alone was the only guilty party of using chemical weapons is dubious and should be treated with skepticism because it's the same bullshiat Colin Powell sold the Iraq War on. That and in many people's opinions, using chemical weapons is not enough grounds to invade a sovereign territory otherwise we'd have had to invade our own allies for doing the same thing, and we'd have to shut down the CIA for helping Saddam Hussein use chemical weapons on his own people and on the Iranians during the Iran-Iraq War. So it's not like our hands were clean, even though Obama tried selling action on Syria based entirely on America needing to be the moral authority on the matter aka playing world police all over again, this time in a new country.

EXTRA EXTRA Obama disrespects Nobel Peace Prize! Spurns international expression of good will towards America! Why does this elitist think he's too good to accept an award from this esteemed organisation!? Some say it is because Muslim Law would not allow it! Others say he is a Communist who wants to outlaw any recognition of one person above another! Is it possible that the Nobel folks are too religious for this Atheist!? Or does he...

They mostly bailed January '09.

Really? Code Pink no longer exists? Are you certain of that?


Code Pink?  And they've done just exactly what now?  Say in 2013, besides telling one another what they would do if anybody ever listened to them, and, in general, seething ineffectually.  Do I sense pent up rage, just waiting for a Republican to be elected, so that it can burst forth, with righteous anger?  Is that the Code Pink, you're talking about?

Yeah because it's Obama's fault he forced the media to cut in to the Grammy Awards to break the news of his bombing of Somalia. Yeah, Trent. I'm sure Obama thought that bombing Somalia was the perfect way to disrespect you and your hack artist friends and not because he's the farking President of the United States who thought it was a good time to erase a senior terrorist leader off the face of the planet.

Because Al-Qaeda's operatives work on a schedule to make sure they're in firing range during your pop music circlejerk shows on TV. And Obama clearly controls the media and goes out of his way to inconvenience your friends in the music business just to spite you.
