There is nothing more important than the military mission
Got to call BS on that one.
We have had several military missions that certainly proved unimportant. Not the least of which was LBJ's Viet Nam.
We should absolutely support the men and women in the military but we should be very, very critical of those that would put those men and women in harm's way. We have an obligation to question and criticize war efforts of the politicians. It sickens me that Obama gets a free ride on his expansion of our war effort.
We should change our foreign policy today and start reducing our world wide policeman obligation--Israel, Taiwan, NATO, UN, SEATO all should stand on their own.
We have screwed up in the Middle East so many times that our reputation is tarnished there. The Iranians hate us for installing the Shah in 1953 after they had adopted a republic form of government. All the Arabs are suspect of support of Israel. We bribe the Palestinians and Egyptians and Saudis and Jordanians.
Let's get the heck out of there tomorrow.
