re: “The Rs and Ds have decided that America be the world policeman. You get what you vote for. The WOT will never end.”
I would support us being the world’s policeman IF we were allowed to use all available force necessary to complete the job.
The biggest problem is that the politicians NEVER let us finish operations militarily - even with WW2, FDR allowed the Soviet Union stay in all the eastern block countries for 70 years - how many millions of people were tortured and murdered by Stalin all because FDR and others were too naive, stupid, or both?
If we are going to police the world from dictators and communism, fine, but allow our soldiers to finish it with all the weaponry and manpower available. Not this “partial-war” or “faux-war” where our men and women in the field are sitting ducks or placed needlessly in harms way because of some stupid ROE our State Dept. feels is necessary.
We disagree. Part of the problems, is the half asses, unDeclared 'War's that we get involved in. If one wants to go to war, fine, Declare it and win it.
Nor does the US even care about communism. We once opposed it in some degree. Now it's good for business in the form of China and other countries that 'we' sign trade deals with. Cheap labor, lower environmental standards, oppression against unions, stopping free speech, those are all qualities that benefit a higher rate of return for investment opportunities.
It is for Obama’s propaganda
