Except this time, the war hawks are on the left. I can't believe that the arguments they are making in support of a Syrian invasion are the same arguments Neoconservatives used in 2003. Deja Vu all over again!!!!

Dont be fooled, its the same argument the left made in 2003 as well, and years prior, into the Clinton administration.

Who's talking about an "invasion?"

I'm not saying I support it (nor do I support ANY Democrat OR Republican in high-level office) but what is being tossed around is a potential targeted strike with no boots on the ground, right? Not really much of anything like the invasion of Iraq.

I didnt say anything close to that...

But to answer your question, I havent stayed up on the subject to really form an onion one way or another. Whatever Obama does, I'm sure will be what he feels is correct and I wont be able to criticize it since once again, I havent stayed up on the topic. Last I heard the discussion was dropping a few bombs. If its moved to discussing an invasion, I havent heard.

It's almost surreal how the same debate and arguments are going on but coming out of the other side's mouths now.

We even have indisputable secret proof.

See..history does repeat itself and just takes on a different flavor !

The war hawks were on the left back then too. it is the way of it in almost all conflicts and wars.

Anyone thinking otherwise is either fooling themselves or ignorant.

FDR JFK LBJ Carter Clinton, while the Republicans inherit that BS mainly. GWB got his straight from Monica........

Who opposed the invasion of Afghanistan? The only controversy over Iraq was proof that there was militarily significant amounts of WMD's, and there weren't.

No.
  • There was no attack against us - unlike 2001.
  • In 2003 - there was overwhelming public sentiment to take action. That is not the case now.
  • Defense budget is cut. Use resources for American interests only.
  • The last time we helped out (Egypt - no Congressional approval) we got the Muslim Brotherhood and the whole mess afterwards.
