Reread my original question...here let me repost it for you...<quoted text>
Reread you post, Mr Wiggley. You should recognize there is virtually nothing in your words that would reflect anything but an anti-Bush/defense of Obama stance. There is nothing in your own words that demonstrates you are neither left or right, as you say. Instead, you just take the stance that Bush knew what he as being told was a lie - you can't possibly know this - and that poor Obama had no choice but to invest more troops and drones into other Middle Eastern countries. Therefore, with all due respect, you're projecting the "jaded opinion" angle. And you're right, it is very difficult indeed to rationally converse with someone like you.
Not that this will do any good but, let's be sensible here: Obama simply followed through with Bush's previous timeline in troop withdrawal. He didn't put work into that. He simply let the already in place plan follow through. So let's not make his "actions" out to be more than they were.
Next, Bush didn't force Obama to bring the war to Afghanistan. In fact, Obama ran on the platform of ending these wars and bringing out troops home, then spoke of meeting with these radical terrorist-infested country's leaders to discuss a solution. Instead, he sent troops and drones into other Middle Eastern countries, causing thousands more deaths of innocents and militants, and driving our costs of war deeper and deeper. We are not in Obama's war whether you want to admit it or not.
Make one thing very clear, I most certainly am not neutral when it comes to politics, and I will never claim to be. If you want to pretend you are that's up to you.
I may have missed this being brought up but I'd like to ask some questions given we are dealing with someone who obviously wishes to do Americans harm.
Should we send in Troops to try to capture this person or persons? This would endanger the lives of our Troops and probably innocent bystanders.
Should we send in a Drone and eliminate the problem endangering only those in the sights of the drone including innocent bystanders but not any of our Troops?
Or...should we do nothing and let the problem fester hoping the problem will go away and deal with it after they manage to kill innocent Americans?
I'm not taking any sides here, just wondering what others think about this.
Nowhere did I mention politics. Nowhere did I mention any President. You were the one who ultimately had to drag names of Presidents and politics into this and began the defense of Bush and the hammering of Obama's actions.
If you want to cry about and defend Bush, that's fine. I didn't agree with everything he did nor I don't agree with everything Obama is doing either.
You are obviously jaded and a hard core republicant. You are part of the political problem just like the hardcore democraps.
Try, if it's possible, to look at my question from the Moral and Ethical angle and see what you can come up with.
