    ****ing animals. All of them.

    It's really bad when Iran takes the high-road against the United States.

    Imagine the vocal outrage from the media if a Republican had been in the White House when this atrocity occurred.

    We should give both sides limited arms and let them kill each other and not us.

    The Associated Press in Syria reported:

    Sec. Kerry said the U.S. might cut support to the group. The group notes that it was an individual act—a war crime nonetheless—and Amnesty International attacked the group, and noted that the Syrian civil war is the cause of hundreds of war crimes and human rights abuses.

    I think we need to send Hil liar y and Kerry over there personally to investigate the matter. I'd even let them each have the same number of security officials as Chris Stevens had while they are there. Heck, have Obama join them and he can add a his handful of body guards there too so long as they adhere to the rules of engagement our troops have to abide by.

    Those stating that Trump should lead by example with his companies and where they make their product.....let's see if the above trio will lead by example and do the same and walk the walk that Chris Stevens did. Sounds fair to me.

    Running a corporation is fundamentally different than war. Which seems like a weird thing for me to tell you.

    It's interesting that our leaders only care when these get reported enough. Very little was mad
    Was it Reagan or Bush one that armed Bin Laden initially to fight the Soviets? I can't remember.

    True. It does not matter what side do they take. Anyway, those animals have a bad habit of changing sides regularly.

    Ah, what timeframe was that again?

    It should be noted that this policy has nothing to do with D vs. R, this is all our foreign policy has amounted to for the last four decades. A house of cards of proxy states/actors built up overtly or covertly to serve our interests, knowingly or not. Gotta wonder why we seem so mystified when our chickens come home to roost. :rolleyes:

    It's almost as if American's don't know their own history and believe some type of benevolent fairy tale instead...

    That's a bit of a tu quoque. Certainly, Rumsfeld and Cheney had dealings with Saddam Hussein and the Taliban. The question is how the United States maneuvers in Syria.

    The Russians desperately want to protect Assad. We want Assad out, but don't want him to be replaced by Islamists. The rest of the Middle East is concerned that whatever mutation of AQI/ISIS comes out of Syria will become their problem. Thus, everyone has their fingers in the place, trying to maneuver it to a point where there's still a Syria.

    The Russians invaded Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. We began arming the Muj almost immediately. Reagan didn't become president until January, 1981.

    My point isn't around running a corporation but was rather a poke at all those stating Trump should lead by example. I think if that's the case then my point about Kerry and Hil liar y visiting the middle east with the above noted security restrictions is comparable.

    Yeah, but you can lead by example when running a corporation, because the worst thing that might happen is you have to eat your own dog food, so to speak.
