“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”--(a screeching) Hillary Clinton
Wonder how she feels about the FACT that if you debate and disagree with THIS administration, somehow you're racist/homophobic/misogynistic /etc., etc., etc..?
That would be fine if you were actually debating or disagreeing. But, you're not. You are maligning and disparaging. You denigrate the Presidents character; post photo shopped naked photos of the Presidents late mother; you lie and whine about the First Ladies wardrobe; the cost of fuel on AF1, the cost of Secret Service protection; the cost of their vacations; you question his birth place; his religion. You call him a Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Muslim, and on and on and on. All of which is untrue and your saying so daily will never make it true, it's just a stupid exercise in futility. You learned that from Rush Limbaugh and repeat it like a good little dittohead or mindless parrot.
The other day another one of you made vile remarks about Chelsea Clintons looks; and Carol the religious hypocrite agreed. You whine about the amount of money Chelsea Clinton is paid by NBC.
You call the President of the United States: The Kenyan, show depicitons of him as an ape,
you do the same to the First Lady.
All of these things do make you anti American and a disgrace to this country.

Now, if you would say: I disagree with the Presidents stand on not getting involved in Iraq because of......., that's different.

I have not seen any of you do that since this thread began. None of you. So, therefore, yes you are racist and likely homophobic, misognistic, xenophobic. Why do you object to being called out on what you are and display here daily?

The United States said it could launch air strikes and act jointly with its arch-enemy Iran to support the Iraqi government, after a rampage by Sunni Islamist insurgents across Iraq that has torn up traditional alliances in the Middle East.

Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have routed Baghdad's army and seized the north of the country in the past week, threatening to dismember Iraq and unleash all-out sectarian warfare with no regard for national borders.

Joint action between the United States and Iran to help prop up the government of their mutual ally would be unprecedented since Iran's 1979 revolution, demonstrating the urgency of the alarm raised by the lightning insurgent advance.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the advance an "existential threat" for Iraq. Asked if the United States could cooperate with Iran against the insurgents, Kerry told Yahoo News: "I wouldn't rule out anything that would be constructive."

As for air strikes: "They're not the whole answer, but they may well be one of the options that are important," he said. "When you have people murdering, assassinating in these mass massacres, you have to stop that. And you do what you need to do if you need to try to stop it from the air or otherwise.

Britain, once Washington's only major battlefield ally in Iraq, announced it had already reached out to Iran in recent days. A U.S. official said meetings with Iran could come this week on the sidelines of separate international nuclear talks.

Iran has longstanding ties to Iraq's Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and other Shi'ite politicians who came to power in Iraq after the U.S. invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.

ISIL seeks a caliphate ruled on mediaeval Sunni Muslim precepts in Iraq and Syria, fighting against both Iraq's Maliki and Syria's Bashar al-Assad. It considers all Shi'ites to be heretics deserving death and has boasted of massacring hundreds of Iraqi troops who surrendered to its forces last week.

Its fighters are joined by other armed Sunni groups, who oppose what they say is oppression by Maliki's Shi'ite-led government in Baghdad.

ISIL fighters and allied Sunni tribesmen overran yet another town on Monday, Saqlawiya west of Baghdad, where they captured six Humvees and two tanks, adding to an arsenal of U.S.-provided armor they have seized from the disintegrating army.

Bush and Uncommon Valor - retired Air Force colonel
Bush and Uncommon Valor
By John Wambough
March 2, 2004
George Bush and I were fighter pilots.
Lt. Bush flew F-102s in the Air National Guard (ANG)-- 111th Fighter
Interceptor Squadron (FIS); I flew F-105s in combat -- 34th Tactical
Fighter Squadron (TFS). Both our flying assignments were inherently
dangerous -- Lt. Bush's because of the high performance nature of the
fighter interceptor aircraft he was flying, the training required to
fly the F-102, and the high risks that come with all weather (night
and day) intercept missions.
Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic National Committee's Mr. Terry
McAuliffe and the anti-war (weak on National Security) left wing of
the Democrat Party have relentlessly attacked the service of Lt. Bush
and by inference other pilots and service members in the ANG and
Reserve forces as cowards and shirkers of responsibility for not being
in Vietnam. Their flippant slandering of our Guard and Reserve forces
in an effort to discredit President Bush and win an election is beyond
the pale. They have no decency left.
........
Cowards (or people who lack courage)
don't take on the risks that Lt. Bush did
in flying Fighter Interceptor Aircraft.
Flying jets in wing formation in the weather and carrying explosive
ordnance on board is dangerous work. The pilots in these squadrons
(including Lt. Bush) did what their country asked them to do. They
performed their assigned mission and did it well.
In November 1970, the Commander of the Texas Air National Guard,
Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, called Mr. Bush, then 24, "a dynamic
outstanding young officer" who stood out as "a top-notch fighter
interceptor pilot." "Lt. Bush's skills far exceed his contemporaries."
Colonel Killian wrote: "He is a natural leader whom his contemporaries
look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with
outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing."

During the Vietnam conflict, military pilot training was greatly
expanded to accommodate the increased need for pilots. Thousands of
pilots were trained during this conflict, primarily to support mission
and pilot rotation requirements. F-105, F 4 fighter pilots, and the
pilots of other combat aircraft were routinely rotated out of the
combat theatre after completing their 100 combat missions. That meant
that other pilots needed to be trained to take their place. As the
Vietnam conflict began to phase down around 1971, there was a surplus
of hundreds of pilots in the U.S. Military, for which there were
relatively few flying jobs. Thus, the active duty force as well as ANG
and Reserve forces could be very accommodating to those who wanted to
pursue alternative career paths (such as Lt. Bush going to Harvard
Business School). In fact, these sorts of administrative actions
(early releases) helped alleviate the challenges facing the services
of a pilot surplus. Also, commanders were lenient in allowing
individuals to fulfill their service obligations in ways not involving
flying duty. Such arrangements were coordinated at the unit level.

Just as Lt. Bush's supervisor released him from the ANG to go to
Harvard, I released a pilot from the Air Force months early (when I
was Commander of the 4442nd Tactical Control Group) so he could
participate in the pilot hiring cycle of Delta Airlines. I could have
held this pilot to the end of his service commitment but chose not to
-- since letting him go early created no hardship to our unit. Rather,
it gave a pilot (who had served his country well) an immediate
opportunity for a future career. I point this fact out so that the
public knows that Commanders have the prerogative to make decisions
that take into consideration the needs of the Unit and the needs of an
individual ready to make a career transition out of the service.
Having been a Squadron Commander, I can tell you this -- we know the
status of our assigned personnel all the time -- everyone is accounted
for. We reported the status of all our squadron personnel daily to a
higher level in our organization. Likewise, Lt. Bush's Squadron
Commander of 30 plus years ago (Lt. Col. Killian, now deceased), would
have known where Lt. Bush was or, at the very least, how to contact
him should that have been necessary. The bottom line: Lt. Bush's
documented Air National Guard service exceeded the requirements set
forth in his Guard contract and Lt. Bush received an Honorable
Discharge.

As Lt. Bush completed his flying assignment in April 1972, F-102s were
being phased out of the Air National Guard.
What we know is that he served honorably;
he flew fighter jets;
he embraced the inherent high risk of flying an F-102;
he served our country;
he met his Air National Guard requirements and
he received an Honorable Discharge.
The attacks on Lt. Bush are designed to diminish Lt. Bush's service to
our country in the eyes of our citizens and soldiers some thirty years
after Lt. Bush received an Honorable Discharge. This is truly
reprehensible and driven by political adversaries like Sen. Kerry, Mr.
Terry McAuliffe and their left-wing media surrogates.(Go to cspan.org

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the United States needs Iran's involvement in Iraq, and Washington should open talks with Tehran, a step he described as unattractive but perhaps unavoidable.

Graham, a South Carolina Republican, spoke on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation" on June 15 making the case for necessary engagement with Iran to prevent the Iraqi government from falling to militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

"We are probably going to need their [Iranian] help to hold Baghdad," Graham said, adding "The Iranians have an interest. They have Shi'a populations to protect."

Graham also called for Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to resign.

The ISIL staged surprising attacks in Iraq seizing large areas in the west and north of country, though the Iraqi military has slowed the ISIL advance toward Baghdad.

But when someone goes out of their way to prove you wrong and you insist on not educating yourself and refuse to acknowledge what has been proven and deliberately ignore it, stupidity becomes another sympand weak - and somewhat dangerous. Blind loyalty on the part of anyone who can see no wrong in the most devious of power hungry and rogue leaders never has a good ending.
Even Republicans disagree with your anti American posts ?

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that the government should talk with Iran about the deteriorating situation in Iraq.

"We should have discussions with Iran to make sure they don't use this as an opportunity to seize control of parts of Iraq," the hawkish senator said. "They're in this. They're already on the ground. We need to put a red line with Iran."

Asked how the U.S. should do that, Graham replied, "You just sit down and talk with them."

Graham has long been a hardliner on Iran, and his comments came as a surprise to interviewers Gloria Borger and Dana Bash. The pair asked Graham to repeat himself. "I'm sorry, it's sort of hard for me to believe that I'm hearing a Republican say,'Sit down and talk with Iran,'" Bash said.

"Do you realize what's happening?" Graham replied. "If Baghdad falls and the central government collapses in Iraq, the Iranians are the biggest winner. We're the biggest loser."

The Iraqi government is currently facing an insurgency, and Iraqi officials have warned they may accept help from Iran should the U.S. continue to stay out of the conflict.

President Barack Obama said Friday that he was reviewing options, but would not send troops to Iraq. Graham said he believes the U.S. should use air power to stop the advance on Baghdad and to hit Syria. He added that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki should be replaced with someone more trusted by the Iraqi people.

"We should be the ones who save Baghdad so the central government can survive," Graham said. "But to ignore Iran and not tell them,'Don't take advantage of this situation' would be a mistake."

Frankly speaking; if I were Hillary; I wouldn't want the job. However, politicians are a quirky lot. She may or may not run; but my bet is that she will.
