My feeling is that you are wrong again. Look at how many times he shows his support for our troops, police, emergency responders, and even the Scouts. People remember that and they remember the far left supporting the very people that are mocking, or worse, our first responders. Who are you recruiting beside more Antifa?

cutting and running is not going to erase the fact that we still have enemies that want our destruction.......if Afghanistan falls then Pakistan is next and they have nukes.
Hmm, where have I heard this line of thinking before cough Cold War cough Domino Theory cough cough

didn't we win the COLD WAR? Does the Soviet Union exist today?........our former communist enemies are making our shoes and clothes and goods for us at a cheap price.


you think this is this way because we cut and ran during the cold war with no care on the consequences?

I honestly think we should have never got involved in Korea or Viet Nam in the first place. And I think the US government spent a lot of money on missles and defense that could have gone to better use, like for a National Healthcare System instead of having thousands of ICBMs and military bases in tons of countries

Everybody wants to rewrite history. In hindsight you could be right; but we will never know. Events can cascade and the alternative future could go either way. We now trade with Viet Nam and South Korea has enjoyed over half a century of prosperity because of our involvement.

However, if you want to debate going back into Iraq the second time of going into Afghanistan; then I would totally agree. Both have been disasters.

ELIZABETH WARREN SOLD OUT TO BIG INSURANCE AND FOUGHT AGAINST ASBESTOS VICTIMS.....“She’s Supposed To Be A Consumer Advocate?((((Elizabeth Warren denied that she had worked for Traveler’s Insurance, the nation’s largest insurance company, against asbestos victims....... documents, both the legal briefs Warren filed on behalf of Travelers, and Warren’s financial disclosures showing that she received over $212,000 for her work, tell a different story.)))))


Before retiring, then Senator Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), co-author of the Dodd-Frank regulatory reform bill that created the consumer agency, urged Obama to put somebody else in the job—a vote of no confidence that helps explain rumors that Warren is considering alternative paths, including her run for the Senate. ....... even retired Senator Chriss Dodd thinks she is INCOMPETENT

why did we end up in korea and nam....because of stupid liberals like FDR


both Korea, and Vietnam (and east/west Germany (and berlin in 3)) were foreign policy BLUNDERS from back in 1944-5 with the talks at Yalta... FDR, Churchill, and Stalin all decided to split countries in half....wrong answer

With the assistance that the USSR gave us in defeating the Third Reich, there might have been an actual shooting war with the Soviets if there hadn't been some negotiation.

ok..then instead of stupidly splitting countries in half (which we should have looked back 80 years to see what happens) they could have easily said.."you guys get this former japan possession, we get this one"

it was stupid to split countries in half or thirds

by splitting them,, we got the Korean war, the Vietnam war, and the berlin wall....
