President Barack Obama says the United States can't and shouldn't intervene in every world crisis.

Evidently Obama doesn't feel bombing the country is intervening.

Assisting in a humanitarian crisis is a far cry from outright war, wouldn't you say?

Drone strikes also don't count in oslamas mind

He is also doing his best to start a war with Putin and China

It was bad when Bush started bombing even as most liberals agreed with him and congress did also

No oslama does it all alone and liberals now love it..........

Bringing a couple of 500 pound bombs to a war, doesn't dent the opposition very much, or save humanity. That's what happened in Vietnam, Korea and now the Mideast. Either stay out or blow the hell out of them.

The only defense is to make yourself so powerful, and so mighty that it would be suicide to attack. Russia and China both knew that if they ever attacked the US, they would not survive the aftermath..........until Obama started whining, back peddling and giving up positions and weapons and getting nothing in return. Jimmy Carter part deux.

If either side attacks 90 percent of the worlds population will not survive

Both of them have multiple reentry war heads that would wipe out 90 percent of the USA and we don't have the technology to stop them

Most liberals agreed?

Your memory is playing tricks on you.

Let's assume no Republicans would want to be called liberal.

In the House of Reps 215 Republicans voted for with 6 against.
82 Democrats voted for with 126 against.

Out of 82 Democrats which ones were liberals?

In the Senate 48 Republicans voted for with 1 against.
29 Democrats voted for with 21 against.

Out of 29 Democrats which ones were liberals?

Ever hear of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD)?

I suppose not. You're a Republican.

Invading Iraq (Bush W) was a travesty. Now is a legitimate reason for boots on the ground to stop ISIS from slaughtering innocent people.

Are the majority of the liberals with or against oslama now?

And under Bush there was not the support for bombing.....

I was not talking politicians I said liberals

And thanks for making my point.....

Saving those people dying on that hill is a justifiable use of force.

Get some boots on the ground and lets deal with ISIS before they kill them all and before they become a wider threat. Eventually we'lll have to deal with them, either sooner or later.

My guess is that we already have. You KNOW there are 'boots on the ground' engaged in reconnaissance and directing aerial strikes.

Don't do it, Obama. Don't make Bush's mistake.

Please, you buttkissing Righties supported ANYTHING Bush did. Don't lie to me or pretend that someone else is being hypocritical.

But FWIW, I oppose ANY further involvement in Iraq the same way I opposed Booosh being involved there.

Wow

Probably the only liberal I have seen that does not want another war at tax payers expense

I agree 100%.......don't be a Bush....

The difference is that Both dad and jr ran as war monger's
Oslama was the anti war monger.......But he also said he wanted healthcare reform and the first thing he did was cut deals with the pharmaceutical companies to not save trillions by bulk buying Meds for their support and the insurance companies for their support

Ever wonder why meds are so much cheaper here and in Canada???

Your god screwed you on that one

President Bush was, "In it to win it." Obama hasn't a clue what he is doing. When he pulled out of Iraq 2 years ago Obama made a huge mistake. He as much as invited ISIS or any other Muslim group to come, and take back Iraq. What does the Commander propose to do with this group of barbarians who are bragging about how they are coming to the U S, and with an open border courtesy of the Democrat President they are probably already here.
