<quoted text> How the blue dress turned into a confession, right before the IMPEACHMENT where's Hillary?
impeachment?

The United States Senate acquitted William Jefferson Clinton yesterday on charges that he committed perjury and obstruction of justice to hide sexual indiscretions with a onetime White House intern, permitting the 42nd president to complete the remaining 708 days of his term.

After a tumultuous year of scandal that tested the Constitution and tried the nation's patience, neither of the two articles of impeachment brought by the House garnered a simple majority, much less the two-thirds necessary to convict Clinton of high crimes and misdemeanors. Article I alleging perjury was defeated on a 45 to 55 vote at 12:21 p.m. Just 18 minutes later, Article II charging obstruction failed on a 50 to 50 tie. Five Republicans joined all 45 Democrats in supporting full acquittal.

"It is, therefore, ordered and adjudged that the said William Jefferson Clinton be, and he hereby is, acquitted of the charges in the said articles," declared Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, the presiding officer, marking the conclusion of the first impeachment trial of a president in 131 years.

"The president," added Rep. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), "has been cleansed."

My Arguments
I. Paris Peace Accords
The US war in Vietnam ended in 1973 with the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. The accords gave the United States what it wanted. Since the US met all of its objectives there was no need to continue the Vietnam War. Why should we continue fighting a war that we already won?[1]
Read this:
"The reunification of Viet-Nam shall be carried out step by step through peaceful means on the basis of discussions and agreements between North and South Viet-Nam, without coercion or annexation by either party, and without foreign interference." [2]
The accords gave the United States the victory. The treaty also showed that now the United States had no need to interfere with Vietnam again. In 1975, North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam again, but South Vietnam was no longer an ally of the United States. South Vietnam was practically fighting a second war against the North Vietnamese. As explained here:
"
Quite convenient that the author left out the part where Nixon and Kissinger made a deal with Hanoi, sign the Paris Peace accords. allow us to pull out and don't attack the South for at least 1 year after we are gone. This information was contained in all those secret tapes of Nixon.

Also convenient that you talk about the draw down of U.S. troops, but again fail to mention that the troop withdrawal and Vietnamization of the war was a Nixon (R) program.

as for winning the Vietnam War in WWII, we weren't fighting the Vietnamese dumbarse. We were fighting the Japanese, another invader and foreign occupier of Vietnam.(Contrary to what you might believe, not all Orientals are the same.) In fact we enlisted Uncle Ho, who was fighting the French for independence, to fight the Japanese. We promised him independence for Vietnam in return.

So lets look at the tally, Liberal Democrat vs Conservative Republican on their track record for winning wars.

WWI We won, President Wilson (D)
WWII We won, Presidents Roosvelt and Truman (D)
Korea We Won, President Truman (D)
Vietnam We Lost, President Nixon (R)
Gulf War I, We won, President George H.W. Bush (R)
9/11/2001, Worst attack on U.S. soil in 225 years President Bush (R)
Iraq 2003, No win situation, destabilizing the entire Middle East, Iraq was not a threat to the U.S. war entered into based on doctored up intel and lies to the American public, President George W Bush (R)
Status of Forces (SoF) signed with agreement to remove U.S. troops by 2011: President Bush
Malaki wanting U.S. troops out of Iraq, makes SoF renegotiation unacceptable to President Obama.
Osama bin Laden brought to justice President Obama
Combat troops removed from Iraq (a no win situation according to President George H.W. Bush): President Obama
Malaki marginalizes Iraq's Sunni & Kurdish populations and seeks revenge, thus pushing former Iraqi Sunni military to join ISIS

Idiots are people like you who want to go to war with a barbaric group of rag tag radicals. Yes, as one political science professor said, "They have to be eliminated, they have to be annihilated, they have to be stopped." But, as he added, boots on the ground do not need to be American. European governments provided ISIS with millions of dollars in ransom and it is the "people in the Middle East who must to be willing and motivated to stop ISIS."
Obama is right...No boots on the ground!!
We have almost 2000 'boots on the ground' and don't give me that humanitarian bs. They have weapons.

Do they even realize that they are all programed robots? They all got the "The President went golfing memo"; and they've been repeating it daily, 24/7, not only on here, on other boards as well; that is until they get their new instructions.
Daily we hear the same repetitive nonsense it's like a pack of dogs fighting over the same bone. They all sit fixated to their one watering hole FIXED news, while they are being fed nothing but anti Obama as that's always the soup of the day, then run on here and pretend that they have an open mind, and real ideas of their own. They still haven't gotten over Obama kicking their fat asses twice, they and Fox whine about that daily. so basically what we have here is a number of sore losers that are blind to the actual truth. And then you have Nose Wax with his who knows how many socks and all are totally transparent. Proving only that they are LOSERS...PERIOD.

Soo if another Benghazi were to happen and a number of our personnel were to get killed you and all of the other war mongering idiots on the right would scream forever. These are security, intelligence and SOF [ Special ops Force] personnel that are required for the safety of our assets. You idiots on the right are as clueless as they come...Your only interest is making Obama look bad at the risk even of your own country. So as usual Flake you are the nutcase.
