and when did Iraq attack us again??? well except for the USS Stark during the Reagan administration.<quoted text>
Stop, stop, stop with your loony-left propaganda. You trot out some pervert and think he is some sort of expert.
And your opinion on the way to fight a war is not to fight it. Well, all that that does is encourage our enemies.
How many B-36s made actual combat missions? NONE! It was called the Peacemaker and it did it's job which was to discourage our enemies.
There should be only one think happen when we are attacked, Retribution should be sure, swift and sever and to do anything else is stupid. So, what have we done about Ben Ghazi? By doing nothing, our enemies are embolden.
and what about Benghazi?? first we have to identify who was responsible, we are pretty sure it wasn't the Libyan gov't. so who would you have us attack?
I'm guessing Hezbollah was pretty emboldened when Reagan let the bombing of the Marine Barracks and embassy go unanswered. In fact they were so emboldened, Reagan went into business with them. They would kidnapped an American in Lebanon, we would sell arms and munitions to Iran they would release their captive. then repeat cycle.
