The blood lust among the war hawks burns enternally. The 186000 civilian deaths in Iraq aren't enough.
By what right has America to dictate to countries half the world away? Where is the funding to support engagements on 3 fronts?
What exactly is meant by get tough and what happens if those communties reject any conditions. What is congress willing to do.
The people of America will not support another war after watching the trillion dollar army fought to a stand still by radicals armed with sling shots

The over half million deaths of women and children in Iraq due to our embargo during Clinton's presidency has escaped your train of thought. When Maddie Allbright was asked about that, she said, "so"! She did not even know she was Jewish...Kerry did not know either. What is the difference? Life is a carnival...

Asking the limpwrist-in-chief to get tough on anything remotely foreign is just plain silly when the last 5 years the only policies he has ever supported have been to get-tough on US citizens and US military. obama mustered more gubbmint employees during the sequester to keep 90 year old WW2 vets out of the DC memorials and keep drivers from stopping on a SD highway to gaze on Mt Rushmore than any foreign 'problem'. How can Putin deal with a straight face with obama that orders his border forces to 'run away' from illegal border crossers and drug dealers, but orders Putin to NOT cross a border to his own country ? We have clowns running this country.

Talking tough is cheap when you're not in charge.

Republicans are the cheapest bunch of flabby mouths around.

Fairypants might not START a war, but weakness won't stop us (or our allies) from being attacked either.

Kerry and Biden are playing nice-nice with our allies telling them we stand by them, as Putin manuvers his soldiers, tanks and equipment in Crimea.

Fairypants has EMBOLDENED our enemies.

When you treat other people in the world like the emasculated white male and Christianity are treated at home, some of them like Russia might fight back. That progressive wise azz mantra wears thin after awhile. To me, Crimea and others areas are within Russia's sphere of influence although others have different opinions. It is obvious Russia felt cornered on this issue and had no choice. The west most likely wanted this area under their sphere of influence as we tend to interfere practically everywhere we can. The president and the rest of his administration needs to be much more diplomatic even if he has an agenda. Treating the Russians like he treats half the population at home is dangerous.

I'll respect your right to your opinion on Iran, and the Afghanistan/Iraq wars, but you shouldn't disparage those who serve and follow orders. Those men and women haven't been 'fought to a stand still' as you put it. They're unceremoniously withdrawing from those theaters based on some arbitrary and capricious decision by Øbama to appease the military haters for votes. It has nothing to do with readiness on the part of our military, but I guess you're one who would have spit at our Nam vets when they returned home.

Putting nuclear weapons into the hands of hyper-religious zealots is like giving the fox the key to the henhouse. The loony leadership of Iran must be kept at bay with constant oversight. But that doesn't mean "bomb-bomb-bob Iran," as sung by the discredited bomb-em senator from Arizona.

American strength must come, not from our military might, but from the economic influence we wield throughout the world, and our alliances with our more reasonable neighbors.
John McCain's approach could explode the world. Obama's smart diplomacy might just keep it intact.

They exist and they have modern weapons of mass destruction. We had options after the Soviet Union collapsed. We crapped on them. They had one advantage in their collapse. They had a chance to rebuild as they did not have to spend so much of their resources keeping their empire intact. There are questions about how their Bolshevik revolution was started as world elitists have their goals.

Not as much as more and more world leaders laughing at us. The more diverse we become without responsible behavior included, the worse it is going to get. This is becoming fun. We spend ten times more in real terms on defense then the Russians and the Chinese. We hire the best of groups. Not the best of all. And we remake laws to make excuses for it. Enjoy..
