I HATE to give slick willie credit for ANYTHING, but rwanda was just as much a waste of time as Iraq, Syria, Vietnam, Korea, Bosnia, Afghanistan, etc etc. NOTHING has changed for the better in any ONE of those 3rd world shtholes, and we should have stayed out of it and decreased taxes commensurately.<quoted text>
Why didn't Clinton do anything about the genocide in Rwanda?
Why didn't the UN do anything about Saddam gassing the Kurds?
Why didn't liberals demand retaliation?
There was an 8 year war between Iran and Iraq in the 80s. When it began, Iran was still holding Americans hostage. Saddam became the enemy of our enemy. We were willing to look the other way so long as he didn't challenge our interests. Just like we did in Egypt. Just like we did in China.
At the time, it wasn't politically correct to "police the world". The Vietnam War had just ended less than two decades earlier.
It's shameful the world watched and did nothing.
It's even more shameful liberals called Bush a war criminal when we finally did do something.
Rule#1 of crowd control/security: If two retards are set on fighting, contain the hostilities where they will do the least damage (i.e. "outside"), and stay clear so you dont get popped yourself.......
