Mentat: ekdikeo4: Someone answer me this, because I'm too young to remember specifics -- Did we (the US) have armed forces in a continuous conflict or "peace keeping" phase at any point during Reagan's presidency? I'm reasonably certain that between Bush 1 and now, we've had continuous forces at conflict in the middle east, but all I remember from the Reagan era was dropping bombs on Libya and somewhere in South America (Panama?). It seems weird that, if that's the case, the one guy that everyone assumed was going to start WW3 may have been the least aggressive of our leaders since I've been alive ... (not counting Carter, he wasn't aggressive at all, but his hands were tied by other's actions, and I was only 4 when Carter left office, so I can't really speak too much about that)We were keeping peace all over the place. Except for Beirut. Those motherfarkers in Grenada learned a harsh lesson after that incident.

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Sarah who?
monoski: Mentat: They are really obsessed with Putin.To be fair, she had a clear view of that hotness from her bedroom window in AK.

Danger Mouse: How does one go from stating that Putin is a leader to be taken seriously to "Putin Love" or "shillin for Putan"?
Danger Mouse: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Sarah who?She was governor of Alaska, the GOP nominee for Vice President in 2008. Bestselling author, news commentator. There's rumors she may run for the U.S Senate this year.She's currently in the news because she was heavily ridiculed in the 2008 elections for her foreign policy experience and made the prediction that Putin would eventually invade the Ukraine.Love her, hate her, of indifferent, anyone with quantum of political knowledge is quite aware of who she is. /not surprised you don't know who she is.
inglixthemad: HotWingConspiracy: Keep telling us the American right isn't shilling for Putin.The Republican right, as has been evidenced by their own statements repeatedly, has a hard-on for dictatorial fascists. Later today, Jonah Goldberg will wonder why people constantly label the American right-wing fascists, because he knows (KNOWS) that liebruls are the real fascists. The cognitive dissonance in a normal person would cause a personality break, but for the American right-wing it's nothing.
PsiChick: Why the hell are they borderline-fetishizing Putin?
PsiChick: grumpfuff: PsiChick: lilbjorn: Seriously though, it should concern American voters that the Republicans have such a crush on Putin.Can someone explain WTF it is first? I mean...what?/Seriously, am I doing the autism thing here or is this as weird as it looks? Why the hell are they borderline-fetishizing Putin? It's contradicting literally every stance they've had (except for their daddy issues) since, well, the fifties at least...Because Putin doesn't put up with the homogheys, and because he's so dreamy when he gets authoritarian.Yeah, no, I mean I get the joke, but seriously, that can't be the actual reason. There's usually some internal consistency to Republicans, even if it's just 'JEEBUS' or 'OBAMA BAD'. This reads more like 'multiple people with weird BDSM fantasies they have yet to work out' and that's just...that doesn't seem possible, does it? For that many people to have the exact same sexual fantasy that they are willing to openly admit in public where people they respect can hear them?

SisterMaryElephant: October 23rd, 1983. Ronald Reagan was President of the United States.What stood out then, particularly on television, was the toll of 241 dead at Marine BLT Barracks at Beirut Airport. Yet on the 30th Anniversary last week, in 2013, nothing appeared on television to commemorate those losses. Not a word on network news or the commentary shows.These were revenge killings; for Muslims, the term "retaliation" is more appropriate. In all, four truck bombs killed 398 people to take revenge for months of Ronald Reagan using the offshore guns of the U.S. Navy to shell Lebanese villages. Those bombardments killed more than a thousand people, slaughtering Druze and Muslims indiscriminately. The technology for the bombs was provided by Iran. There, for the Iran-Iraq War, Reagan had reversed Jimmy Carter's Executive Order and taken to supplying material support for Saddam Hussein. This despite Saddam's use of nerve gas to kill tens of thousands of Iranians, including civilians."Teach them a lesson" from Reagan in the Oval Office had produced unanticipated consequences./just sayin'

SilentStrider: So I wonder how many Republicans were rooting for Kruschev while JFK was in office?I may be off on my history, it WAS Kruschev who was in charge at the time right?
Three Crooked Squirrels: feckingmorons: Nobody wants to see Obama with his shirt off.On a phone, so not gonna post a pic, but a lot of the ladies liked the pic of him shirtless at the beach a while back. Just sayin.
