    4.) Cut off foreign aide to everyone, including Israel. Stop supporting would-be dictators in two-bit nations around the world, and stop supporting the apartheid state known as Israel (according to Ehud Olmert it is: http://www.theguardian.com/world/

    Challenge accepted Elana! I’ve got good ways to stop the spread of radical Islam, and they won’t cost us another $2-$3 trillion, 4,000 dead, and 100,000+ maimed!

    1.) Stop propping up and tearing down dictators. Even the CIA openly admits that supporting dictators from Chile to Iraq was/is complete and utter fail:

    https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol48no2/article10.html

    2.) Stop killing innocent civilians. Why do you think these “islamic extremists” use pictures/videos of dead kids in their recruitment video? Why not simply say that it’s Allah’s will and be done with it. The simple fact is that killing dead innocent people is and has always been the most effective way to turn the populace against you. Why do you think we lost in Vietnam?

    3.) Bring all the troops home. Osama Bin Laden claimed that the mere fact that US forces occupied muslim holy lands was reason enough to come after us. Bin Laden would have made an excellent politician for this simple reason: he stayed on message. All throughout the years in which we were chasing him, he never deviated from this point. Bring the troops home, and these guy will go back to fighting/killing each other.

    News flash to all the sociopaths here on TheBlaze:

    A 500lb bomb dropped from 35,000 feet also beheads people, and they’re usually innocent. Sometime even women and children. I’m just going to let that sink in…

    You’re wrong on all accounts about me being a liberal. In fact, I think you would find yourself agreeing with Hilary Clinton more that you would agreeing with me. Let’s educate you on the traditional conservative approach on non-intervention.

    Chicken hawks like Cruz would get eaten alive by non-interventionists. Gen. Smedley Butler (stop listening to GB and read “War is a Racket”, and actually LEARN something), Gen. Robert Wood, and Hamilton Fish III were all military men of the 19th and 20th century who knew the horrors of war and opposed it vehemently. Additionally, there were those like Senator Robert Taft (a.k.a. “Mr. Republican”) who were staunchly anti-interventionist. Contrary to what you would believe, it was the LEFT who supported big wars and big government/military interventions around the world. In 1898, it was liberals in congress who wanted war with Spain. The great historian, William Leuchtenburg (a liberal by the way) was forced to concede that the burden of the anti-imperialist movement in America rested solely on the shoulders of late 19th and early 20th century conservatives! Just look at WWI, it was the left who overwhelmingly supported intervention in Europe. Additionally, if we wanted to look at current interventions, it was those like Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, The New York Times, Howard Stern, etc., etc. who supported intervention in Iraq (at least initially). So if anyone is in the camp of the liberals, it would be you quicksdraw!

    SubBuster, this has absolutely nothing to do with “peace through strength” fallacies, but since you brought it up, I’ll bite.

    Ronald Reagan was not the warmonger that you and the other neocons around here would make him out to be. After the incident in Beirut that killed 241 marines, Reagan had learned his lesson. He even lamented his decision to intervene at all as evidenced by his private diaries. In fact, by your standards he would have been labeled a “cut and runner” probably.

    Additionally, Reagan fought against most of the warhawks of his day in the Republican and Democrat parties. During the 70′s and 80′s we had several insurgencies in Central America, Africa, and Asia, that the US opposed because they were being fomented by the Soviet Union (think El Salvador, Nicaragua, Libya, and, of course, Afghanistan) and it was one of Reagan’s OWN advisers (Steven F. Hayward) who quoted him as saying that Ronald Reagan had told him that, “these sons of b*tches (referring to the warhawks) want me to send the army every where, but I am NOT going to have 25,000 men in Nicaraqua!”

    So even Reagan decided that, even though the Soviet Union was the greatest existential threat that the US ever faced, that Reagan was not going to invade these countries and try to send girls to school in Afghanistan by spreading democracy around the world. So the conservative heroes that you pretend are so hawkish are not, in fact, all that hawkish!

    God does not support, bless, or uphold what the satanic, nation state of Israel does.

    I implore all Christians here. Before blindly following and supporting the godless government of Israel, please do your homework (to quote GB). Find out who C. I. Scofield and J. N. Darby where and what it is they actually said and why both of their work was widely mocked and discredited all throughout the evangelical church during the early part of the 20th century. These two men were con artists who used their gifts and relied upon the biblical illiteracy that sprang up out of the great awakening to deceive the hearts and minds of God’s followers. Please find out why these two individuals have damaged the Christian faith more than any other outside influence ever could. Do you homework.

    Adult, let’s talk sensibly about this. Honestly, how much of a doofus do you have to be when RICK SANTORUM seems reasonable by comparison?

    Ted Cruz is dead to me. I will never vote for him. Furthermore, I will do all I can to persuade others to vote against him. Sorry. It’s just that the political stunt he tried to pull in front of the crowd of middle eastern Christians completely turned me off to him. There is no forgiving that repugnant, disgusting, filthy tripe.

    49Panhead, Did it ever occur to you that it might be yours that is the revisionist history? Pushed by those who expressly have something to gain from war and the death, destruction, pain, and suffering it brings.

    Stop listening to GB, TheBlaze, Fox News, et al. and actually learn something!

  • September 26, 2014 at 11:04am

    Ya Save, go ahead and tell yourself whatever lies you want to so that you can sleep better at night. This is definitely a brand new enemy that did not exist prior to 9/11 and who hate us because we are the most awesomest country in the history of awesome and because of our sheer awesomeness.

    None of the prior interventions in the middle east from arming the mujahadeen to the raining white phosphorous down in fallujah on innocent children matters. No, they hate us because we allow our women to vote!

    You sounds like such the doofus. ‘Merica!

  • [2] September 26, 2014 at 10:31am

    What a maroon you are shogun. Your knowledge of middle eastern events must only go back to the 80′s and 90′s. We pushed Iraq’s dictator Saddam into power and into a war against the Iranians (one where we supported both sides) to help contain the blowback from our previous intervention in Iran in the 1950′s when we ousted their leader Mossadeq and installed the Shah who was as brutal as his father. (It is just like what Murray Rothbard said, intervention begets intervention) Afterwards, when Saddam grew out of control we bombed and sanctioned them which resulted in the deaths of 500,000 children in Iraq which Madeleine Albright gleefuly admitted was a necessary evil. What a bunch of sociopathic morons you all must be to believe any of this nonsense, and to believe that you are actually doing the right thing. You are the monsters you claim to hate.

    Neither you nor the murderous, atheistic, satanic nation-state of Israel have any moral high ground to claim that it’s the other guy’s fault. You are just as evil and murderous and you sound the same as them. You are the same.

    “No one wants to live this life style. If you leave us alone we’re going to leave you alone. We’re tired. I don’t want to fight. I want to be at home with my family. But why am I here? No one’s asking that question….They call America the “land of the brave and the home of the free” if you’re the home of the free, then give us our freedom. If we want Sharia Law, then leave us alone….
    Come to me I will come to you. Attack me, I will attack you. If you attack one of us, we will attack one of you.”

    This guy made it clear. The only reason they are after is us is because we attack them. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 30 years now. You’d think as a country we’d get the hint. That’s impossible though. No, more doubling down on the same lunacy that’s created this whole cluster-f***. More bombs, more drones, more dead children. More hatred reaped around the world towards the U.S. When will we learn?

    Hahaha, Harley, “Bush won the war”. Now THAT is laughable. Yes, I’m sure with the U.S. presiding over a decade long civil war between the Shia and Sunni muslims, the Iraq war was DEFINITELY won. Congress did not vote on the war prior to our invasion makinh it illegitimate, unconstitutional, and illegal by U.S. and international law. We had no reason to invade. We were lied to about WMD’s and Saddam’s alleged ties to Al Qaeda by the Bush administration based on propaganda that would’ve insulted the intelligence of a 3rd grader (i.e. someone of your ilk). People like Ron Paul correctly predicted that removing Saddam would create a vacuum of power in the region and that said vacuum would be filled with by the crazies (i.e. ISIS). Yet you’d rather believe morons like Cheney who said we would be “welcomed as liberators” and that the insurgency was “in its last throws” back in 2005. Lol, yes, I’m the idealogue. Are you even aware of what that word means?

    As far as Bush being disrespectful to the troops, who can forget this little gem?

    Ready to accept your fate on this subject?

  • [-1] September 24, 2014 at 10:32am

    This still holds nothing on Bush’s, “Those WMD’s gotta be around here somewhere!!” joke. I’d say that joking about traffic is far better than cracking wise about the war you and your cronies started that has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands and left even more brutally maimed in the process…

  • [1] September 24, 2014 at 9:00am

    Could I care less how Obama chooses to salute a marine? I submit that I could not.

    Honestly guys, this Obama witch-hunt is getting ridiculous. Who in the f**** cares how he salutes the military? Does any of this really matter? He hates the military as much as Bush did by sending them to Iraq to die for the military industrial complex and corporate interests. But I guess the right-wing will do anything to distract from this failed war in Iraq.

    Anyone remember how much Bush hates our troops? Here’s a hint, but I doubt you idiots will care:

    Clinton: “I’m a well known liberal!”
    Bush: “And I’m a well known conservative!”
    Clinton: “As you can imagine…”
    Bush: “…we disagree on just about everything!”

    ….(awkward silence)….

    Clinton: “Hey W, want to go bomb some foreigners?”
    Bush: “Thought you’d never ask, Bill!”

    Take your “miss me yet” nonsense and shove it. We don’t miss him. Not by a long shot.

    We don’t miss his bailouts. We don’t miss his Medicare part D. We don’t miss his no child left behind. We don’t miss his “abandoning free market principles to save the free market” BS. We don’t miss his patriot act. We don’t miss his department of homeland security, and his creation of the TSA. We don’t miss his willingness to sacrifice our constitutional rights under the guise of “national security”. We don’t miss the trillions of dollars incurred in debt under his watch. We don’t miss the NSA spying and surveillance that began under his watch. We don’t miss his lying us into two wars that has cost us thousands of US lives, hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis and Afghans, trillions of dollars in treasure sunk, and harvest of hatred reaped the world over.

    We don’t miss this godless, satanic, oaf in chief. No, not one bit.

    But please, by all means, tell me how you conservatards are strict “constitutionalist”.
