<quoted text>Yes. iraq was invaded for no reason at all. Afghanistan was invaded for a specific reason.
If there was any military effort I applaud bushie on, it was Afghanistan.
Iraq is only of strategic importance if the US can maintain a presence there. But that's still no reason for the invasion.
Russia can even tell you Afghanistan is an "unwinnable war".

Why is Obama the only one who thinks it's still the "right war"?

You assume that Obama is a decent and rational person, not a vengeful ideologue.
I'm not sure how you'd make that assumption. He may have decency in a relative way but rationality is nowhere to be found.

that had nothing to do with F&F.
so the point was....plenty of guns make their way to Mexico 'legally'. with no help from anyone but the general public.
Aside from the AZ gun and pawn shops Crossroads of the West Gun Shows and others hold dozens of events each year in that loophole state.

Guns are biz in AZ__the sellers know where the weapons are going and don't really give a shyte.

What Bush's Iraq War and Obama's Drone Strikes Have in Common
An opportunity to kill bad guys can blind presidents and their supporters to the costs and unintended consequences of their actions.
http://www.theatlantic.com/international/arch...
At least you admit Obama is following in Bush's footsteps when it comes to war strategies and foreign policy.

But Iraq is no longer an issue and the media rarely reports any news on Obama's wars. That's the difference.

Malians welcome French intervention

In Bamako, Mali's windswept capital, people are talking of nothing else but the French intervention in the North of their country.

The operation by French forces to stop a rebel advance towards the capital has won their hearts. Before the French intervened residents of Bamako were living in fear of the rebels overrunning their country's weak army and reaching the capital in a short time.

"I salute the French for coming to our aid," Mariam Coulibally, said balancing a heavy basket of grocery on her head. "God knows where we would have been if they had not arrived in time," she added.

<quoted text>Actually, now that you mention it, that part of the world is rich in rare earth minerals.
So from an economic standpoint, it is of strategic importance.
By what right does anyone or any country have the right to go and take by force what natural resources (someone elses) that they want, killing, maiming and creating hatred along the way, calling it their 'strategic interest'?

Let's say that the law abiding of this country were all disarmed and the entire Constitution openly dissolved.{{{shudder}}}

What will you do? if another country decided that we had 'strategic interests' for them- all the natural resources that we have locked up and not using they decide they want and proceed to invade, occupy & take them (like we do to everyone else.)

Then all the whiney babies who don't like guns would really wish they had one.

Not having guns does not make society more civilized.

Obama's wars?

and if Iraq is no longer an issue, then let's hear no more about it. for any reason. the college profs are teaching our kids the truth of it, so no point in us even discussing it in the terms of ideology.

Lets see, why do cruise ships leave from Vancouver? Umm, we'll the obvious answer would be geography, since the only wa. Major ports built big evough for a ship that size are hundreds of miles inside puget sound?
You're pathetic. This is why I could never be a conservative...lying bothers me.
Foreign registry ships are not permitted to sail between two U.S. ports. So, Alaskan cruise ships must leave from Canada.

lol! You're somewhat right Chica. For once anyway.

Hitler's mother may have been a jew.

And if you believe money was the only factor for going after them, then you'd have to explain why they comprised under 50% of his victims.

As for Catholics, the Churches helped the nazis and in the case of Catholics, even recognized Hitler.

I don't know what you're point is, but you haven't improved on your thought skipping process! Still bouncing all over the place!

We both know that you wouldn't shoot police officers, National Guard or military enforcing the laws of an elected constitutional government. That's just chest beating bar talk. You're a liar.
Perhaps I would not, but others would.

In many states and localities, local police would not cooperate with gun confiscation, nor would the governors call out the National Guard for that purpose.

Use of the military for gun confiscation would be unconstitutional and a political disaster.

All of this is academic because gun control legislation is going nowhere.

You quit? Really? Who took over for you?

I think we can see who is the one that is easily manipulated. Those darn wealthy people! They are all fanatics and you are just a mainstream all around intellectual and fair good guy.

Of course, it couldn't be you that is the fanatic and fool!

Why stay in Afghanistan one day longer now that Obama has already surrendered to the Tol-E-Bo?
