re: Commentary - Misuse of American Military Power Leaves the Middle East in Chaos - WildTchoupitoulas
[quote]I think that the Shah was just another of the Dictators we - and the civilized World - supported to keep Islam down.[/quote] I disagree, the Shah was our attempt to keep socialism down in the region - Radical Islam is a reaction to our interference in their internal affairs. The CIA overt...

re: The Federalist - It’s Time To Stop Talking About A Border Wall... - WildTchoupitoulas
[quote]I want no part of nation building whatsoever. None. But if we are going to do it (and spend foreign aid dollars), then we might as well do it on true National Security threat (e.g. Mexico). Just thought it was an interesting perspective that we do not talk about. [/quote] [quote]Wil...

re: CPAC crazy talk : alt-right is not right like us, they're actually leftists - WildTchoupitoulas
[quote]Alt right is a make believe division that makes it easy for someone who needs a convenient devil to blame evil upon. [/quote] :lol: Steve Bannon, himself, referred to Breitbart News as "the platform for the alt-right." So if you think it's something different, take it up with the White...

[quote]Normally when someone makes the type of assertion you did without sourcing the response is "link?". [/quote] Normally when someone says they're curious, they look it up themselves. Now I see you aren't curious, you are challenging my assertion. That's different. [quote]link to an [b]...

[quote] You said it was El Salvdorians and to a lesser degree, Hondorans...Those folks are crossing Mexico's southern border first [/quote] Not as much any more. The problem isn't so much that people are coming here illegally anymore, it's that we already have a lot that are here illegally and h...

I'm truly sorry that you don't see the difference in the problem as you stated it, and the problem that I said didn't exist. [quote]Sure we do. When you have millions of undocumented, you have a major problem[/quote] vs [quote]problem with illegal immigration over our shared border with Mexico ...

[quote]How do we know this when we don't know who is crossing? Just curious about that.[/quote] See? Here is a fundamental question that it seems you would've answered for yourself if you really had strong convictions about solving perceived problems on the southern border. I'm afraid if you l...

[quote] How are they going to help us deal with illegal immigration that actually benefits them.[/quote] If our current administration lacks the imagination to answer your question, we are fricking doomed. First of all, there has really been no immigration from Mexico in the last 8 years. Basica...

[quote]So we've been housing illegals for more than 10 years and subsidizing their existence and lifestyles with social programs? Sounds like a great reason to get them out and prevent others from coming in illegally. We have a process for immigration and they should follow it. [/quote] You forgot...

[quote]Maybe Mexico doesn't want them to leave? You are really grasping at straws with that stupid comment.[/quote] Contrary to popular belief, it is primarily motivated people that make the arduous journey to El Norte, not the sluggards and bums.

[quote]The lack of logic is astounding. The U.S. is wrong for removing Mexican illegals but Mexico would be fine to not take their own citizens back. [/quote] I agree, that logic is astounding, and flawed. Luckily it doesn't address my point. [quote]they're cooperating with us by identifyin...
