Chickenhawks: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result

Speaking to an audience at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Pittsburgh, President Obama said:

“Some of the same politicians and pundits that are so quick to reject the possibility of a diplomatic solution to Iran's nuclear program are the same folks who were so quick to go to war in Iraq and said it would take a few months.  We know the consequences of that choice, and what it cost us in blood and treasure. So I believe there's a smarter, more responsible way to protect our national security.”

And:

“Instead of rushing into another conflict, I believe that sending our sons and daughters into harm’s way must always be a last resort, and that before we put their lives on the line we should exhaust every alternative.”

But, I heard on Fox News that most members of ISIS are from Iran.  And Rush Limbaugh said the Benghazi terrorist attack was carried out by Iranians.  Now, if we stage a pre-emptive military strike against Iran, our soldiers will be greeted as liberators; they'll be showered with candy and ice cream by throngs of grateful Iranians...

As I've said before, let them make a declaration requiring troops to go to Iran. No one wants troops and Iran is too well organized to be as easy as Iraq was initially. Do really do with would require a draft. Suicide for Republicans!

Anonymous: "Suicide for Republicans!" Ahh, such a poetic phrase. Music to the ears.

jadedj: Perish the thought. A nightmare. The last few remaining shreds of the safety net -- gone. Federal pot laws reinstated with a vengeance. The repeal of Obamacare. Immediate invasion of Iran...

Erik: I was pretty sure, but not positive.

War should not be a foreign policy decision. War should be a response to an overt attack on our country.

Jerry: My sentiments exactly. Not politically correct during Amerika's current teahad Klanbagger Zeitgeist, but true just the same.
