If the war on terror had actually achieved anything I might think differently
ISIS didn't even exist before the war on terror
Seems the right has tunnel vision. The American "War on Drugs" was no less disastrous than the "War on Terrorism." Both about equally as effective (read: counter-productive to everything but their collusive short-term bottom line).
I appreciate all contributions. My only viewpoint is that the United States government needs to pay attention to world opinion regarding any military action.
"Kill 'em all and let God sort it out" is pretty much their only approach. Working out the nuances requires too much brain work, and it doesn't result in profit for Halliburton, et al. Killings and big explosions sell to their constituents, as it's taken as evidence of the Duh' Merkun inherent superiority. Not sure how that plays out in your country's demographics, but that's the way it is where I come from. Sadly.
What ever America decides, one way or the other, America should do it with conviction and damn the rest of the world.
Compromise, indecision and lollygagging of one's morals and ideology leads to defeat and chaos.
The world needs leaders... decisive leadership.
America should do it with conviction and damn the rest of the world.
What ever America decides
thought we could go it alone and sod world opinion. It was called the Suez crisis.
that's pretty much how it's worked out for the world, including the U.S.
I cannot even imagine that this kind of thinking still exists.
It's amazing how history repeats itself and people never learn from the past mistakes.
There's one thing that is called evolution but it seems that it only works for a selected few..
, the USA, must decide and act with conviction I didn't say which way it should go. I only insist that it decides without waiver and do it with conviction and not rely upon what other countries think. That could mean in any direction.
Had the European nations done what was right prior to wwII the USA would not be in it's current position,
How do you think that would work say if the US decided to attack N Korea, against the wishes of its allies in the region? How could the US launch an attack on N. Korea without the support of S. Korea and Japan?
You're already having problems sourcing chemicals for lethal injections thanks to EU trade embargos banning the sale of such chemicals to countries that still practice capital punishment.
Had the European nations done what's right the USA wouldn't even exist, it would be a patchwork of Native American nations.
In truth I don't care what N. Korea nor japan thinks.
