Yes I served during Viet Nam

By: Old Hickory Trojan



but luckily never deployed there but totally prepared to go even though I didn't support that action politically so I am anything but a Hawk just a guy thats been around awhile and majored in History in college many years ago...and had my father and two uncles serve during WWII and Korea in the Army Paratroopers in the Pacific (my dad) and one unlce in the Navy and the other in the OSS in Europe (look that one up if you are not familiar with it). 

Now to your point....it's bullshet...I suppose we weren't hurt on 911, or at the Boston Marathon, or the first wrold trade center or the numerous bombings of our military baracks and embassy's in other parts of the world...and this was before Iran had nuclear capability and Korea had the where for all to launch a nuclear warhead on us...and as far as Isreal being able to wipe out Iran in seconds....wrong....Obama wouldn't give them the bunker buster bombs they requested in order to go deep enough to knock out Irans missile capabilities or nuke development sites ..so you would be wrong on that one as well...and you totally disregard history in everythig you've posted....continue down that path and the damage inflicted on America will be greater then you can imagine...just as it was at Pearl Harbor, Poland, and numerous other wars started by some pissant with an attitude and hate strong enough to disregard common sense...and in the case of these propagandized Muslims who beleive in dieing to inflict damage on the great satan is worth it...I beleive in what Teddy Roosevelt preached...."Speak softly but carry a big stick" diplomacy

"Big stick ideologybig stick diplomacy, or big stick policy refers to U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt’s foreign policy: "speak softly, and carry a big stick." Roosevelt described his style of foreign policy as "the exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis"

That s the way you negotiate with tyrants and  maniacs and you learn from history so you don't make the same mistakes over and over again...you take what worked and use it and what got you screwed you throw out the window....
