This is a sh/t sandwich all the way around. I think we should stay out of it, the argument that they are slaughtering people, and using chemical weapons, ok, what's the difference with that and all of the slaughtering And genocide taking place in Africa over the last decade or so? Skin color and what's below their feet. We should get off of our moral high horses and take care of our own problems.
Seems like this subject has been beaten into the ground on this forum, but it is a little refreshing to see a debate that isn't so partisan. No person on here is gonna change anyone's mind on 99% of the debates on here. But I think this one falls in the 1% category. I find myself straddling the fence on this issue.
No need for me to wake up BRP, I'm fully aware of our presence in the Middle East dating back for decades, my point is that as civilians sitting around arguing about the same $&@: on here, we kinda forget that all it takes is one successful strike on the homeland to throw all these arguments out the window.
All we can do is make sure the safeguards are in place. I know that many of you laugh at that, but there will always be people hellbent on killing Americans. Luckily most of these people are not criminal masterminds, as far as the abuses of political power, it goes both ways. And I agree that the party in control def has the upper hand. With the constant changing of technology, there should be more safeguards put in place to try and bring a balance, in my opinion this is one of the most important and complicated issues of our time. There is no one single answer.
I wonder how the tone of comments would turn if we had a major terrorist attack along the same lines as 9/11. I'm not crazy about the intrusions on my privacy, but if it can stop an attack, how can you logically argue against it?
A quitter, just like Sarah Palin. Too bad she won't be in the news anymore, I will miss the laughs.
