Additionally, it was 8 years of Clinton policies that encouraged the 911 attacks and cemented our anger for that region.

I blame our policies from both sides of the aisle.

You want to blame one side and grease the DNC machine with war blood.

I remember reading that if you removed 25 people from Washington D.C. during the W. Bush era, the invasion of Iraq would have never taken place.
Democrats had a BIG hand in that war. Not just history, but recent history.

A month or so ago he talked of pulling U.S. troops out of Syria, and the left and their media went ballistic.

The vote was taken to encourage Iraq to allow the UN weapons inspectors into their country and it worked. Hans Blix and his team found nothing of substance and the reason for invasion died. In any case the vote wasn`t a declaration of war.

Did you agree with the Bush Administration’s push to war in Iraq? Or were you vociferously opposed to the invasion?

I’d take a wild guess, but I’d rather give you a chance to answer.

And you think those of us who've been in the Military or are in the Military signed up for a free ride to sit around and drink Mai Tai's? Our expectations are to be sent somewhere where needed around the world.
