    It is a dog-eat-dog world when it comes to countries trying to control other countries... no easy way to assert one-self other than to have the bigger stick.

    Now It seems to me if the USA wants to be SAFE... we need a govt with a STRONG attitude about "Dont mess with America'...
    Softies (like the current administration that bows to Muslims)... are the laughing stock of the world... why would one not take pot-shots at America.
    OTOH: Put a hard nozed Texan in there who noes not put up with ANY crap out of any tin-horn dictator... and the USA will be free and safe.

    Which USA do folks want to live in... one that is afraid and in danger... or one that is strong and free? PS: do not just give me an answer... vote your answer...

    Of course having a military as strong as we do it tends to become a threat to it's own nations, as taught by our founders when they tried to prevent this nation from having a standing army.

    Do you want the USA with that is strong, but you're still afraid and in danger, from your own government? We are almost there.

    You present a good paradox...

    If a country is weak... they will be taken advantage of by others... Probably conquered. However if they are strong... the citizens need to beware.
    OTOH: some of the worst civil rights abuse is in small countries... Go figure.

    IMO (stress GA's opinion); whether a countries citizens are free depends on how much the citizens love freedom. If it is important enough to stand firm with govt over said freedom; folks will be free!
    In the USA... too many folks take it for granted. I just hope they learn to take it more seriously before its too late.

    Personally... I would rather worry about our govt than an invading foreign force... ASSUMING (yeah, bad thing to do) the Constitution can be upheld in the courts. If SCOTUS goes liberal (in the sense of rubber-stamping anything that comes out of POTUS mouth)... well we are in for a rocky road. The faith I have in the USA is based on the fierce independence of the citizens. There are WAAAY too many folks who will not give this country away without a fight... Just hope it is not too late... Really do hope so...

    "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
    - G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

    "I am truly not that concerned about him."
    - G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts,
    3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

    I believe he was a Texan


    “There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans,” Obama said in August 2007. “They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al Qaeda leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf will not act, we will.”

    Not a Texan

    I would suggest watching what happens in Egypt in the next few days.

    a couple drones over that region would be handy at this point

    Do folks really believe the simple stuff the media says is the whole story... talk about shallow minds... Guy is probably so stupid he thinks everyone in Texas is the enemy...
    Might take a HARD look at how many folks have left California and moved to Texas... There has to be a reason... care to share it with us... that is if you can figure it out.

    What you are not aware of: The day after 911: literally hundreds of special forces folks headed to Afghanistan. Over the next 6 mos... they took out over 100,000 (yes, over one hundred thousand) terrorists in the mountains of NE Afghanistan. And who was the president then? Yeah, we know.

    How many terrorists has BHO taken out? Just one high profile one... who BTW was loosing his power long before BHO was elected.

    And for that matter, how many foreign ambassadors have been killed under Bush and how many under BHO?
    Hint: Last September...

    Change your vacuum pump oil now.
