By saying that, you put yourself in league with blind isolationism of the past & present.\n\nsorry, that was not my intent.\n\n\nWhere were those money wasting protests when W Bush & D!ck Cheney wanted to invade Afghanistan and Iraq? Similarly in 1991, when HW Bush wanted to intervene in Kuwait, where were those isolationists who vociferously opposed it because it was a budget-buster\n\nThey were there and I was questioning that mess as well, but 'The Steam Vent' hadn't been invented yet ! ;)\n\nIt does seem like an isolationist foreign policy combined with feigned interest in fiscal responsibility are selectively applied only when a president is a Democrat. \n\n\nnot from me, I'm an equal opportunity basher of any and all politicians when and where justified !!
