To characterize her present status as Vernon Jarrett's daughter in law would be a lie.

GUESS YOU CAN'T READ. The Mission was not support nation building in Afghanistan, or support a puppet regime
here read real slow:
THE MISSION: GET OSAMA BIN LADEN AND AL QAEDA.
I would not have outsourced the mission to a bunch of warlords. I would have used American troops. I would not have diverted troops & equipment from that mission to invade Iraq., i would have used troops in overwhelming superiority at Tora Bora and gotten Osama bin Laden. Then I would withdraw all troops
I would never have invaded Iraq, a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, did not pose a threat to us and actually provided a deterrent to Iranian ambitions
I read and understood your response.

So, your answer was:
"Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect a different result?"
Is this correct? You would do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and you're stupid enough to think you'd have a different experience than the Soviets, right?

hint.....
here's a great story about how Rubio could now win a national election because he quit catering to the Tea Party.
Marco Rubio Spurned by Original Tea Party Supporters Over Immigration
The boosters who helped elect the Florida senator are denouncing his immigration heresy—backing ‘amnesty’ when he swore he wouldn’t—and vowing a primary challenge. But his national prospects look brighter.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/07...
won't be long before Republicans candidates will be running on....'I don't belong to the Tea party!'....and winning.
Here's the story you ran away from with your ignorant indoctrinated party line rhetoric:

Aist of the ideas the Democrats want everyone to think are archaic....
So, you don't like this idea, right?
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
and this:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
and this:
"No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."
and this:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
and this:
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
and this:
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."
... and most especially, you hate the notion of a constitutional republic with limited government.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
These ideals are what you pretend to believe. The TEA Party actually believes in them,... and will fight you to keep it the standard of our country. You will have to kill them to eliminate the Constitution, which is your ultimate goal.
Do we have to fight ANOTHER war to make these points about limited government and individual rights?

Any convenient means of stonewalling that's plausible to distract the masses will do.
Sometimes Obama just gets downright lucky - a major hurricane right before the election? Couldn't have asked for a bigger spotlight or photo ops before the people went to the polls.
Romney all but disappeared during that week before the election blinded by the glow of Obama looking so presidential in the aftermath of massive destruction.
Kind of like a sign though too. Massive destruction helps elect the wrong president?
Just being introspective.
No luck HAARP

<quoted text> He is Zimmerman's worst witness. His book contradicts Zimmerman's account on several occasions. He just testified that Zimmerman's holster was an internal holster, not an external holster &, that it's hard to see even without a jacket on. Also the prosecutor was trying to get Osterman to admit that, if you shot someone &, didn't know they were dead or the threat was neutralized, it's commonsense or protocol to keep you gun out. Osterman is ducking & dodging his direct questions, trying not to say anything incriminating on George's behalf. His testimony is more damning than good!
So, what you're saying is, if a person has a concealed weapon, it's ok to attack them and bash their brains out against a concrete sidewalk, right?

NEWS FLASH

Americans have the right to be armed.

ADVISE

If you're a drug-using dropout gangbanger wannabe and are thinking about attacking someone because they appear to be weaker than you, remember that Americans have the right to be armed and you may get blown to hell like Hoodieman.

You're wasting your time by presenting factual information in a logical manner. These right wing morons are programmed to only recognize a fantasy world provided by their handlers. As you can plainly see, DBWriter is mentally ill, no chance of having a rational exchange of ideas.
Perhaps you can fill in the blanks for that idiot. His last non-answer was:

"5. We defeat Japan
The Allies reneg on their deal with Uncle Ho
6. France defeated
7. DDE sends in U.S. advisors..."

"Reneg on their deal"
Your idiot friend forgot to mention the details of that deal. Please help him out.

"France defeated"
Your idiot friend forgot to mention that the French were in Vietnam only because Ho Chi Minh went to Paris and asked them to return. He also forgot to mention that the French brought democracy with them. He also forgot to mention that he started a war with them as a result of the people of Vietnam not electing Ho Chi Minh dictator. He also forgot to mention the Soviet Union joined Ho Chi Minh's fight against the French he asked to return to Vietnam, and defeated the French with Soviet weapons.

Now that the battle of Dien Bien Phu is over, what happened next in the history of Vietnam?
(hint: Vietnam is one country when the French leave Vietnam. How did Vietnam become two countries?)

(... psssssttt... The Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries. The UN agrees. The Soviet Union endorse Ho Chi Minh as supreme ruler of North Vietnam... ok, I'm giving you the answers again. So, after Ho Chi Minh divides Vietnam into two countries, what happens next?)

No. Can you help us with that one? How many tanks did Janet Napolitano procure while Obama was spending a hundred million dollars on a jaunt in Africa and taking hot meals away from the Armed Forces of the United States serving in Afghanistan?
Now back to the post you keep running away from:
I didn't mean to inadvertently over tax your ability to rationalize. I probably caught you off guard. I'll give you another chance since it was probably a fluke you got your ass handed to you.
Daughter-in-law of communist Vernon Jarrett and has the office immediately adjacent to the Oval Office. You know, the office Obama went to when he was summoned from the golf course when he didn't even have a clue the operation to kill bin Laden was even happening. You ran away from that discussion previously when the truth about Obama being indoctrinated in Marxist communism his entire life got shoved up your ass.
Now, back to the topic you responded to:
It's 9/12.
You're the president.
What do you do? Do you:
1) Surrender to the muslim jihad? or;
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles into their general direction? or;
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect a different result? or;
4) You do something different.
If you choose 4) You do something different, what do you do?
... well, dumbass?
No, I don't know about the tanks, that is why I was asking you. I thought you said she had 2400 or something like that, I just assumed you knew what type(s).

The 100 million has been debunked coincidentally 100 million times. Do you get all your info from rightwing fringe sites?

The daughter-in-law? LOL

Anyone here been heavily influenced by the politics of their father-in-law?

Here Homer.

Jarrett was a member of the Board of Directors for the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corporation along with several Davis and Rezko associates as well as the Fund for Community Redevelopment and Revitalization, an organization that worked with Rezko and Davis.

The Chicago Sun Times reported that one Rezko-managed housing project was "riddled with problems - including squalid living conditions, lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers".

As Chief Executive Officer of the Habitat Company Jarrett also managed a controversial housing project located in Obama's former state senate district called Grove Parc Plaza. According to the Boston Globe the housing complex was considered "uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage...In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition." Ms. Jarrett refused to comment to the Globe on the conditions of the complex.
