If this is not invasion what is ?
There were members of the US military with the UN Peacekeepers for a time while Clinton was still in office but not after that and they did not see combat.

You can certainly qualify bombing campaigns as attacks but you're stupid to try to stretch that to an "invasion".

War in Serbia costed American tax payers billions . In fact we still paying for it but things like this YOU wouldn't know so the joke is on you BOY !
Clinton invaded Serbia?? Care to offer some proof of this lie??

You get exponentially more ignorant with your every desperate post.

It was a NATO campaign that bombed Serbia.

And it was to stop the slaughter of innocents by Serbian paramilitary.

It was quite cheap, esp. compared to Bush's disasterous wars, which cost trillions and put us into a depression.

Come back when you aren't so stupid!!

Trillions?

NATO=North Atlantic Treaty Organization__this is the one that the John Birch Society really hated___hated to the degree that it's members used "get us out of NATO" as a badge or signal.

UN=United Nations is something different.

How about you bone up and come back one day when your head is out of your azz, eh?

Unfortunately, I guess you just don't get it.
A balanced budget does have a relationship with deficits & debt.
We had one.
Yep, we had exactly what you freaking idiots have been harping on.
"OMG OMG OMG Congress hasn't passed a budget". That
is what you bozos say. As if having a budget would solve anything.
Bush had budgets. WTF happened? Did we have deficits??? Did we have debt???? Did we end up in the worst recession in 80 years???
All with your blessed budget.
One day, morons like you will realize that we had what you want & it was the Republicans that took it away. But, hey, you keep electing Republicans. It shows just how f*cking stupid you are.
Yup

Yup

and Yup

Friggin' morons.

I wouldn't hold them in such contempt if they'd just come out and tell the truth about the GOP platform. Here's a summary:

Less individual rights
More government
More government spending
More government sponsored religion

Who do they think they're fooling? Oh yeah ... themselves.

"Perhaps the best reflection of congressional abdication of responsibility occurred when President Bill Clinton deployed more than 20,000 U.S. troops to Bosnia in 1995; both congressional chambers voted to "support the troops but not the policy." In 1999, once the war in Kosovo had begun, the Republican House leadership opposed the efforts of Representative Tom Campbell (R-Calif.) to assert Congress' constitutional war powers. During the Clinton years, much like during the Cold War era, Congress -- regardless of which political party was in the majority -- tended to avoid checking presidential war powers"

Iraq was an invasion.

Afganistan was an invasion.

Serbia was a NATO led police action.

Compare the casualties, moron.

Bush got 4,000 of our troops killed in Iraq, and countless contractors.

No American lives were lost in combat in Serbia.

Stay stupid, it will insure Democrats winning elections going forward.

I kind of like kicking you in the teeth!! How's it feel??

Brings back the memory of when you told us you make 40k yet swore Obama had raised your taxes, when he actually lowered them!! DUH

So I did your taxes for you,right here online, and it pissed you off so badly you started claiming that the 40k was a 'hypothetical'.

ah, such amusing memories!!

You're a fraud, and you're incapable of foling anyone, killtaker.

You're another dumb bozo, much like retardDweeb.

Keep being stupid, your side will keep losing elections.

IF I'M AS GOOD AS I CLAIM YOU WOULD LEARN NOTHING FROM THEM, WOULD YOU, CLOWN? BUT, MORE TO THE POINT, WHY IN HEAVEN'S NAME WOULD YOU EVEN SUGGEST SUCH A THING? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE TOO? I SORT OF GET IT THOUGH, YOU'RE TRYING TO COMPETE WITH ME, IT'S KIND OF ALL YOU'VE GOT, ISN'T IT? MAYBE I MENTIONED THAT I TEACH A CLASS AT NIGHT SOMETIMES. IT'S ADULTS AND CHILDREN MIXED, OFTEN 60 OR MORE SOULS, AND HERE'S WHAT I TEACH THEM: "IF WINNING IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, THEN YOU SHOULD GO HOME AND WATCH TELEVISION. IF YOU LIKE TO HAVE FUN AND BE WITH OTHER LIKE MINDED PEOPLE, THEN PLEASE STICK AROUND." I'VE TAKEN THOUSAND OF PEOPLE THROUGH THIS PRACTICE AND IN MY SUBTLE, UNADORNED FASHION, HAVE WEANED THEM OF COMPETITIVE BEHAVIOR. THAT'S BECAUSE COMPETITION IS GROTESQUE. IT PITS ONE HUMAN BEING AGAINST ANOTHER AS IF ANY SINGLE COMPONENT COULD DETERMINE SOME MYTHOLOGICAL PECKING ORDER. NONSENSE. WE ARE ANTS. WE ARE ALL ANTS. DECORATING YOUR CELL WITH MOHAIR CUSHIONS AND DIAMONDS DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CHANGE THE FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH: WE ARE ALL JUST ANTS IN A HIVE. THERE ARE NO "FINER" THINGS IN LIFE, ANT IS ALL YOU GOT. YOU'VE INVENTED A COMPETITION TO ELEVATE YOURSELF ABOVE WHAT YOU PERCEIVE AS THE LEVEL OF THE AVERAGE ANT AND IN DOING SO, YOU'VE DRAWN A LINE BETWEEN WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU PERCEIVE THEM TO BE, BUT, IN ACTUALITY, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE, NONE. WITH THAT SAID, I TEACH PEOPLE TO FIGHT. FIGHTING IS NOT A GAME, NOT A COMPETITION. FIGHTING IS ABOUT PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM PREDATORS. IF YOU REALIZE THAT FIGHTING IS A NECESSARY SKILL AND NOT A GAME, THEN YOU CAN LEARN TO KILL EFFORTLESSLY. ONCE YOU MOVE INTO THIS LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS, YOU ARE HEAD AND SHOULDERS OVER THOSE MORONS WHO THINK LIFE IS SOMETHING TO BE WON. COME PLAY WITH ME. I'LL SHOW YOU THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE...

Actually they didn't, that's just when their calendar stopped. All the hype was just that: hype.

Meanwhile, they weren't making projections based on current spending levels. The CBO's failure was not recognizing what a budgetary disaster it was going to be letting the big spending GOP hold all the pursestrings.
