My, my, would your God be happy with your anger???? It's your war fool, and it always will be..Your confusions stems from the fact that you put your political beliefs ahead of the facts and reality. Obama is keeping us out of war while your party fueled by numerous idiots are pressing for more war. You just aren't used to a president that thinks first, before sacrificing American lives. Bush Cheney are both proven cowards that were willing to sacrifice and lie hundreds of thousands into dying for their own self gain. Now we are still stuck with their mess.
Lyndon Johnson was perhaps the most liberal president the US has ever had. He was known as the heir apparent of FDR, but easily surpassed FDR's New Deal with his Great Society. Early off he had to pander to his conservative constituents in Texas, but in his heart was always a true liberal.
In the 1960s, Vietnam was a war that nearly ripped America in two. I vividly remember the 1964 presidential election between President Lyndon B. Johnson and Senator Barry Goldwater from Arizona.
Johnson was a card carrying socialist who campaigned on ending the war in Vietnam and bringing all of our boys home safe and sound. Goldwater was also against the war, but said that if we were forced to fight that we would do whatever it took to win even if it meant dropping an atomic bomb. Johnson was labeled a peace-loving dove and Goldwater was labeled a hawk that wanted to wage war. Consequently, Johnson won re-election by with one of the largest landslide victories in history.
In the mid 1970s, I had the privilege to sit on a committee with Sen. Goldwater and talked with him about the 1964 election. He told me that he preached the only way to peace was to WIN the war and get out. Johnson had no intention of winning the war rather he sacrificed thousands of American lives to help him play into the socialist agenda of the United Nations. He told me one day that he accused Johnson of lying and being a war criminal to his face and Johnson told him that if he ever repeated that claim publicly that Goldwater would NOT live to regret it. True or not, thats what Goldwater told me and he was one of the most honest politicians I ever knew, which is why he rankled so many feathers of those he spoke about.
After winning re-election, Johnson escalated the war effort in Vietnam instead of peacefully withdrawing as he promised. He followed all of the UN leadership instructions to the letter, which was devastating since communists sat on the UN committee that approved all of our military action and we were fighting communists in Vietnam. The people that succeeded in the war did so without UN approval so the communists didnt know what we were doing and Johnson promptly fired them. As a result of Johnsons leadership, nearly 50,000 Americans were killed in Vietnam under his watch and countless more were wounded. I always believed that Johnson should have been charged and convicted of war crimes against the US.
Fifty years later, we have another socialist Democrat who ran for president claiming he was against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and that he would do everything possible to bring our boys home safe and sound. Like Johnson, Obama lied. Yeah I know we supposedly ended our war efforts in Iraq, even though we still have troops there, but that withdrawal plan had been initially started by former President George W. Bush, even though Obama takes full credit for it.
As for the war in Afghanistan, Obama actually escalated the war by increasing the number of troops. In less than a month of assuming the presidency, Obama began increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan. Like Johnson, fifty years earlier, Obama declared the increases were necessary for security purposes.
