Americans unsure what to think about President Obama's plans for Syria should remember that ALL military action undertaken by Democrats for the last half-century has led to utter disaster. You see, leftist Democrats are gung-ho about deploying the U.S. military provided only that it will harm the national security interests of the United States, but vehemently oppose interventions that serve American interests.
Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, the supreme commander of the Allied forces in World War II, said he could conceive of no greater tragedy than the U.S. getting heavily involved in Vietnam. He sent aid to the anti-communist forces, but no troops. However, as we all know.... Democratic President John F. Kennedy sent troops. But in short order he was conniving to assassinate South Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem - also known as ''our ally in the middle of the war.''
JFK's brother, the Democratic attorney general, actually suggested that Americans donate blood to the North Vietnamese - ''our enemy'' - as gesture of good will. Unbelievable! Then came Kennedy's successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, who escalated the war in Vietnam in order to prove that Democrats could be trusted with national defence. Which they cannot. As journalist David Halberstam reported, LBJ would ''talk to his closest political aides about the McCarthy days, of how Truman lost China and then the congress and the White House, and how, by God, Johnson was not going to be the president who lost Vietnam and the Congress and the White House.'' LBJ sacrificed tens of thousands of American lives to try to make the Democrats look manly.
Richard Nixon came in and honourably ended the Democrats disastrous handling of the Vietnam War by signing the Paris Peace Accords in January 1973. In return for the lousy terms the president jammed down South Vietnam's throat, America promised that, if the North attacked, the U.S. would resume bombing missions and military aid. America hadn't been humiliated -- the left had to act fast! The media invented the Watergate scandal out of a minor snooping break-in, an implicated Nixon was forced to resign and a crazy left-wing Congress was inaugurated. Just a month later, North Vietnam attacked the South, and the Democratic Congress turned its back on South Vietnam, betrayed an ally and trashed America's word. (For Democrats, that's a ''victory.'')

Then you have Obama in a fit of Islamic ass-kissing flinging America's prestige into removing the pro-Western Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. Mubarak supported U.S. policy, fought the Muslim extremists and recognized Israel's right to exist. Or as the leftist scum calls it; Three Black Marks against the man. The Muslim Brotherhood quickly took control of Egypt and were worse than any of Mubarak's faults, leading to this year's military take-over and Mohammad Morsi's arrest.
The Way I See It.....President Barack Obama is another Democrat president in a 50 year long line of presidents that have continued the traditional botches and blunders on the geopolitical stage. It is still a wonder that any country still wants to deal with America as an ally on an international level. When you hear behind-the-scenes stories of Obama and his advisors making foreign affairs decisions off-the-cuff and being face with the reality of those decisions; you only have to see the unnecessary tragedy of Benghazi and the lies that followed.
For absolutely no reason - no purpose whatsoever, that is, other than fulfilling Obama's idiotic campaign ''talking point'' about Afghanistan being a ''war of necessity,'' contrasted with Iraq, a potty little ''war of convenience'' you get the full picture of an America government bereft of any real objective and no concept of ''victory''. And now we see Vladimir Putin circling like a shark. The Iraq War turned every Middle Eastern despot into President Bush's bitch. But now Obama is their bitch. I know that Democrats car more bout free birth control than geopolitics, but if they keep getting elected, Americans will getting fitted for burqas, not IUDs.
