    Did you ever stop and think he may have had an "oh shiz" moment???

    I want a strong military... Always will. You people can complain all you want, come up with add conspiracy theories or whatever makes you feel better. I sleep better knowing at least we have a boat load of money keeping our Forces strong.
    Funny thing.

    All that cash we spend on weapons and military industries - more than the rest of The World combined - so we can feel tough. Bases all over the planet.. our face in people's grill from Asia to Africa to Europe.. Threatening, intimidating and meddling in other countries so some people here can feel "secure".

    Yet, we're the ones in the crosshairs of every terrorist maniac on the planet gunning for us 24/7/365.

    And they only need to get lucky once.

    It makes me hope we don't keep trying to make ourselves any more secure.

    The odds aren't in our favor.

    It's called learning a lesson, you wouldn't know, you are from Australia... Great people for sure but no one is exactly racing forth to see your destruction so they can have your... hmm... DINGOS?

    History... It is always about history.

    But I know it's easier to spout off old hippy cliches from the past... "Make love not war!" and "War - What is it good for!?"

    Ahhh.. If it was only this easy, I would sign up in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, the world is a lot darker than that. So, yeah. I go with the big military concept.

    I wont butt into your & gazza's love-in, but this comment suggests you think other countries are racing forth to see the destruction of the US so they can have ... something of yours?

    What something of yours are people out to get?

    I would venture to suggest many of the "enemies" of the US are such because of the *perceived crimes of US, rather than US being a benign hero which therefore attracts evil to attack it.

    Eye of the beholder, and all that? One mans whatsit is another mans thingamajig?

    *note: perceived, for clarity.

    Hmmm.. That's funny.

    There's 192 other countries in this dark old world.

    They're existing under the same environmental pressures we are.

    There's countries like Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia, Japan, Chile, China, Brazil and the list goes on.

    Many of them are getting along fine.

    None of them seem to need a $750 Billion Dollar per year military budget.

    I wonder why only we - and Israel - have to worry so much about getting blown up.

    Hmmm....

    What is funny is that liberals don't understand that a weak nation invite attack. As we become less effective militarily then we become more vulnerable. The president wants to weaken the military for what? To spend more $ on social programs taht don't work and cost too much?

    Yes that is exactly what he wants to do. Is that funny? No it is not, but it is really, really stupid.

    A divided nation IS a weak nation. The more you people try to push us farther apart, the weaker we become.

    But that never stops you.

    Conservatives are not waging class warfare. That is a construct of the left. It is the left that jammed Obamacare down our throats. It is the left that is causing our problems. It is also the left who had dominance within our government.

    It was not the right who fueled the Occupy Wall Street mobs, it was they who waged class warfare battle against tthe banks.

    To say that the right is fighting class warfare is just plain off the wall (old term; before your time). Just listen to what the left says about the Religious Right! Endless hate speak.

    Did you watch the Wellstone Memorial service? It was there that we first saw the true core of the Democrats. Pure mob, blind hatred directed towards the right. You don't see that in right wing rallies. You should attend a Tea Party rally sometime. Very peaceful. No hatred anywhere. Just people exchanging ideas. Sometimes a left wing agitator shows up trying to create a riot, or to fire the people up. They think that the right hates just like the left does. They may rant for a few minutes, but we just ignore the poor slob and he runs out of gas. We go over to him and shake his hand. "That was interesting", We say. "Nice try."
