Do we, as a country, intervene in every civil war around the world?
Let the Russians and Iranians spend their resources in Syria; I am glad that we have not gotten involved. The involvement is to protect Turkeys border, a Nato operation.
While it's horrible what happened in Darfur and Rwanda; is it our responsibility to solve it and how?
I think we as a country have to concentrate on helping Americans and stop putting our noses in everyones business.
Only when Obama can follow France and the Media uses it's the hypocrite double standard pass.

So what's your excuse for Libya, clown?

Speaking of clowns, did you say "stop putting our noses in everyones business"???????

What about your darling in NYC, Mayor Blunderberg? 16oz soda's?
You on the left are the champions of "putting our noses in everyones business".

You are nothing but a clown, lily.

I’ll tell you since you have no clue.
It’s about a balanced budget, fiscal responsibility, more open government (something we have not seen from you Savior in Thief) and less taxes (which should not affect you as you and almost 50 percent of Americans pay no income tax what-so-ever.)
80 some odd members of United States Congress are TEA Party Members. They refuse to cooperate with President Obama about the budget problems. No wonder U.S. Congress has such a low popularity rating.

Not even the tea-p knows what they stand for. There are thousands of organizations that have their own agendas.

They're no different than any other politically motivated organization.

Ronald Reagon had his good points as President even though he was tough on Unions in the United States.

I worship God not the President. I just respect a man doing a difficult, demanding job. He is expert in foreign affairs, well respected by NATO. He might even get relations normalized between North and South Korea. I would like to see th DMZ zone in South Korea demolished. Let families unite as it was in East and West Germany before Russia went broke and agreed with President Reagan to tear down Berlin Wall.

A pro-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender group issued a statement today urging President Barack Obama not to nominate Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense.

"GetEQUAL strongly opposes the potential nomination of Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense. Hagel has, time and time again, taken every opportunity to lambast and denigrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans, and the Cabinet is no place for this kind of disrespect," writes the chair GetEQUAL's board Tanya Domi.

"Hagel's recent apology for his insulting comments about the nomination of James Hormel as U.S. Ambassador to Luxemborg were hollow, politically expedient, and nakedly gratuitous. The Defense Department has made important strides toward creating an inclusive Armed Forces, but has miles left to go -- nominating Hagel to lead the Defense Department would be a staggering step backward for the LGBT community and an upheaval of President Obama's past support for the LGBT community."

"During his years in Congress, Hagel consistently opposed the advancement of civil rights for LGBT Americans. A Hagel nomination would throw President Obama's support for LGBT civil rights into deep suspicion. Following yesterday's signing of an NDAA that includes a new "conscience clause" designed to permit discrimination in the military by chaplains, the LGBT community is looking for leadership at the Defense Department that will remove discriminatory practices from the Armed Forces -- not cement those practices."

If it had been up to you and me - and Tenzing - I'm sure we would have led the charge in Darfur and Rwanda.
Unfortunately, we're on sidelines and can only observe and ask why.

I don't know about you, but I made a bunch of money this week, as the market rose almost 4%.
You know a big rally is coming, housing stocks like Pulte have more than doubled since summer. The economy is coming back, and if the House would get out of the way, it would improve faster.
You're the only rightie on here who seems to understand stocks, so why you all gloom and doom??
The housing market in some parts of the country are doing a little better because foreign investors are buying cheap properties. Here it is the worst I've seen it in 25 years and we only have 5.6% unemployment. The stock market is an artificially inflated balloon with phony printed money. It will pop as soon as they stop printing money jut like it did the last three years. Things are not getting better. Don't fool yourself into believing the hype. 2013 will be the worst year yet.

President Obama would never say "I'm the War President"
The forces will augment Turkey's air defence capabilities and contribute to the de-escalation of the crisis along the Alliance's border," Eucom said in a statement.
"The deployment will be defensive only and will not support a no-fly zone or any offensive operation," it added.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says more than 44,000 people have been killed since the uprising began nearly two years ago, including nearly 31,000 civilians
The UN believes up to four million people inside Syria are soon going to need humanitarian aid, up from 2.5 million. Another 500,000 Syrians have also fled to neighbouring countries.
