73hockey- i'm not left, I'm not right and I'm not center. I'm all over the map. I take in the facts, I make my decision and if more facts come out then I can change my decision. This is how an atheist scientist thinks. Make judgements by what is presented.

i think the majority of the people want a calmer country it is just the bad news makes for better news and in some minds the attention they get looks good. it would help if the news or any information would tell the good.

People need help? The USA went into 3 countries and now there are 3 civil wars. You have to stop "helping" people who don't want it. Democracy doesn't work in all parts of the world. Sometimes you have to gas a certain part of the community to keep all other people in line. Saddam knew this and kept his country in order. It probably wasn't nice or pretty but it was effective to keep those dirt hugger from killing everyone including more women and children than Saddam ever did. So I'm sure Iraq at this time was wishing there was a Saddam to beat back the ISIS... he didn't mess around and you can bet your bum nobody would be screwing around in his country. And let the record show that Saddam hated terroists just as bad as the USA did or does.

Our primary goal was Bush one-upping his dad -- who the righties called a wimp because he was smart enough not to topple Baghdad.

Vegas: The USA spends a trillion dollars on defense spending. That is crazy when they have no real enemy. Yes Russia to some degree but anyone can't hit the USA with missile launches. Why spend billions on new air craft carriers when nobody else has any. The USA has 12. Why spend money on tanks when the army doesn't want them and they are wrapped in plastic in the desert.

The defense department has become a jobs creator. It employees to many people and they need to axe the defense budget by half. Then use that money to pay off some of their debt

If Bush would not have murdered Saadam none of this would be going on. Yes murder for starting an illegal war.

Hey pee wee, again I agree to some extend on your comment, but Woodrow Wilson (Social Dem) wanted the income tax to support BIG government projects. Now we are spending about 5% on defense and the rest mainly on social services (welfare, education, food stamps, medicare, etc etc
