$9b a month instead of a sniper crew at distance or a cruise missile.. Really? That’s right you are old and retired.. you will not be picking up the tab for this moron. You believe the president acts in the American peoples best interests.. like in the old days...$9b a month on shore verses of $9b off shore.... and he did a bang up job of not changing the leadership in place quickly, with less costs involved as well.<quoted text>
Some of what the president reviews each morning concerns reports by human intelligence resources. Call them agents, informers, spies, whatever, it would cost their lives if the information they relay was made public. This is not to mention that their deaths would create blind spots where we might need them the most. A primary, publicly known fact that most have forgotten is that we thought Saddam had the weapons because we had given them to him at a time when we supported the man. It was reasonable to assume he still had some of those. My personal opinion is that we should not have attacked Iraq because that's not what America does, ideologically. Iraq, by the way, was not a quick decision at all. That one took months and was a decision left over from the Clinton group who should have made it. But then, IMO, there are lots of things that Slick Willie should have done differently. I'm always amused by the folks who lay this mortgage meltdown at Bush's door, when it was ol' Slick who started the ball rolling in 1995 with modifications to the CRA. America has a terribly short memory. The last part of the equation is the fact that we're all human, and that means mistakes. A wise man told me that if I'd show him a man who made no mistakes, he'd show me a man who never did anything.
The international legal prohibitions against assassination also do not present a significant obstacle to the use of assassination by the U.S. Government. International customary and treaty law does not prohibit the sort of open attacks generally employed by the United States when it strikes directly at foreign leaders.
To busy flying to read? The sad part is the comprehension skills lacking… or the blind eye turned because of the perception of being polite. If I said I would wanted to ship $9b a month to a foreign power….. instead of spend it here at home…. someone could logically surmise that it would be in fact better for the Country if the monies where spent here.. But you ignore the blaring facts and be polite grand pa.. as you were…
