Bush? Cheney? Shut down Government?

This Thread is Should the west now send in the troops : ISIS & IRAN

Why can't the Right/Left Wing Ideologues stop?

Answer: They can't. Their entire 'thinking' is contained in a few phrases.

Now let's get back to THE QUESTION.



My answer to THE QUESTION. H**L NO!!!!!!! Let those people sort out their own affairs. If we keep interfering in their stuff, they are not going to leave us alone.

Agree. However...

First. Lets Drill, Drill, Drill. Then stop buying/needing their oil. Then let the Jihadist's populations starve.

Without Oil Revenue's: They can't support their populations.

Sorry Jan Galipoli was in wwI not 2 and yes it was the English commanders in charge .But not Churchill

100 year anniversary coming up so is a very big thing down here

Gallipoli was Churchill's idea.

He was fired afterwards.

If we were in an equal society where a woman's worth is not primarily judged on her looks then you might have a point.

However, we are not there, so until the newspaper has as much column space on the actual achievements of women (i.e. their merit as a successful lawyer as opposed to marrying George Cloony) as it does to the achievements of men then the inclusion of a woman as a collection of body parts will have less negative connotations. Until then the page 3 titty page does nothing but perpetuate the evil of objectifying women.


Wholeheartedly agree. +1

Are the women in this discussion, willing to see more Hunks and Male Strippers?


Why would they be? The Chippendales are as demeaning to men as the female strippers and t***y dancers are to women.

All about turning a human being into nothing more than a collection of body parts at a meat market.

As Es99 says, maybe one of these days if things change... but not at this time.

'Sexual Interest' will never stop, despite what the Puritan's want, by either Gender.

Unless we wish to stop procreation.

Good luck.

Pentagon: North Korea Can Likely Build Nuclear Missile That Could Hit U.S.
WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea may be capable of fielding a nuclear-armed missile that could reach U.S. soil, but because it has not tested such a weapon the odds of it being effective are "pretty darn low," the commander of U.S. forces in South Korea said Friday.
In remarks at the Pentagon, Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti noted that North Korea claims to have such a missile, although some have questioned whether they have achieved all of the key technological breakthroughs, including manufacturing a nuclear warhead small enough for a long-range missile.

Of course North Korea could hit US with nuclear missiles.
No one needs long range missiles to do it.
All you need is a ship with an atom bomb destined to a US Harbor.
LA, San Diego, Frisco.
Boooom!

Then North Korea goes BooooooooooooooooooM!!!!!!!!

Suicide by MAD.

MAD = COMPLETE Destruction of BOTH Sides by Thermonuclear Devices (Fusion Bombs).

Does North Korea have Fusion 'Bombs'? No.

Partial Destruction of 1 to 5 US Cities: Does not destroy the US.

3 to 5 Fusion 'Bombs' Completely Incinerates North Korea.

MAD? No.

This insistent harping, and finger pointing, of who's to blame: Is best left to future books.

It is not so much who is to blame, unless you insist on getting it wrong, in which case it should be corrected. Rather, who is to pay for it? The Republicans don't mind spending a trillion or two telling the Arabs how to live, and then when the bill comes due they shut down the government and threaten to default on the debt.

They think that is fiscal responsibility, just as they think that invading the wrong country is good foreign policy. You don't need to harp on it, just not repeat it.

The Republicans? Another Shallow Thinking Ideological Rant.

Can we stop with this ideological insanity, and discuss what to do NOW?

I am not sure what part you are objecting too, but if you think it was the Democrats who shut down the government it will be difficult to discuss that issue further. And yes, both W. and Cheney were Republicans too, and got most of their support on the issue of Iraq from their own party. The fact that it did not work out for them does not make the issue suddenly non-political insofar as I know. (Did you ever listen to one of Cheney's speeches?)

As for what to do know, that is in fact the right question to ask. I recommend not doing what we did wrong the last time for a start. We can discuss variations on that theme as we go forward.

"Dear God protect us."


Gallipoli:(
I saw a documentary about that the other day.
Winston Churchills blunder...
99 years ago. 131 000 soldiers killed and aprox 262 000 wounded.

There's and old saying.

If Churchill wasn't PM in 1940 - Britain would have lost the war.

If Churchill wasn't PM in 1943 - Britain would have won the war faster.

No doubt the Denialists and the Fossils FUDdites will excuse themselves of this:

Can the Warmests 'Religion' stop with the 'Blasphemy' insults?

Answer: No.

It is their type of Unthinking Attacks which destroy their arguments.

FUDdites? How silly.

secession?

Silly and shallow response, as is your 'fix'. This is a very complicated problem, in a very complicated Country.


WHO made it that complicated?

FINALLY, you understand how complicated.

I've always understood that. The problem with such a complicated situation (as with anything in life), is that the majority overthink the problem & constantly fail to see that sometimes, just sometimes, simple is best!

Sometimes not.

Shouldn't that be "more often not?"
Then ask yourself "why is that?"

There are people who understand and 'Fix'.

There are people who...

'nuff said.

Careful there James, you don't want to be labelled a rabid anarchist or a bolshie Irishman(in your case a Bolshie Yank) by BHL's, or even worse put on a watch list as you're a danger to them.

Maybe it's time these nutjobs started bumping off crooked politicians, they might get the message.

What message?

Silly, and shallow thinking 'solutions' (one size fits all, in a Large and Diverse Continental Country) will not work.

'Feel Good' solutions (take out a few words in a document) will 'fix' a Very Complicated Governmental System, Cultural, Religious, Racial, Ethnic, Multi-Language Country: Should be considered Humorous in its silliness.

Silly is it? With all your so called security & big boy on the block bravado, how is it that this year alone, there have been some serious breaches of security at the White House?

Or was that deliberate so that it can be claimed a "lone wolf nutjob" bumps off the Bimbo that lives there?

There's nothing more silly than a bunch of morons arguing with each other rather than do what's good for the country as a whole.

If your country has got too large & diverse as you say, why not bring back secession? After all, we outside the US see constant moaning about States paying too much to the Federal Government.

secession?

You have not addressed the issue of why it is for the U.S. to fix that, but you have carefully avoided the issue of how the U.S. brought about ISIS (they are mainly Saddam's guys who were thrown out of work by W.).

So what!!!

France, and The UK, helped bring about the NAZI's, starting with the Treaty of Versailles. So?

I don't know on this one.

NEWARK (WABC) --
A health care worker arriving from Africa who was placed in mandatory quarantine as part of a new policy by the governors of New York and New Jersey has developed a fever.

The state health department said the woman had no symptoms upon arrival at Newark Liberty Airport, but on Friday night she developed the fever and is now in isolation and being evaluated at University Hospital in Newark.

http://7online.com/health/passenger-quarantined-after-treating-ebola-patients-in-africa-develops-fever/364779/

The Sovereign States of New York and New Jersey are doing what the Obama Administration should be doing.

The Obama Administration should be ashamed of itself. But it's not.

Just what is it with American schools & guns?

Mentally ill in America have more rights than the sane. You can't segregate them because that would damage their fragile souls.

I saw this as a Police Officer in the past, and presently as a volunteer with our Veterans.

You and I know the crusades ended a long long time ago, but they are today to ISIL!

Nothing new. They are living in the past regarding their Philosophy, Be-Headings, Raping to increase their population, etc.

The biggest problem about the Jihadists is their absolute stupidly. They have been around for the last Millennium, and haven't learned anything.

They really believe that their enemy's, including The West, are nothing more than silly little villager's, whom they can walk in, with a sword/gun, and the population, if they don't surrender, will be massacred.

They, including any 'Western' supporters, do not, and have never understood, the REAL Power of their enemy's, and how genocidal they become when truly scared.

This will end, as it has always ended. Unfortunately, for them, and our souls: The Destructive Power of their enemy's is Absolutely Terrifying.

There was a recent story about how the Israelis were not so worried about ISIS, since they had no weapons with a range that could attack them.
http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/10/21/heres-why-israel-loses-no-sleep-over-islamic-state/

But the right-wing in the U.S. gets panicked 8000 miles away.

And the Left (watch CNN), and the Middle.
