    All I'm saying was that as stated in the constitution, the person we elected as president is the commander in chief of the military. There's no reason why the SecDef needs to be a politician too. Not seeing exactly what I stated that you're arguing with me about...

    If it makes you feel better I'm very much opposed to all our military ventures, including opposing the Afghanistan war back in 2001 when republicans and democrats alike thought it was great...

      ... merely pointing out how the terminology is used.

      We totally agree on the military ventures.  I never saw the sense in going after a little group of criminals in some remote place..., since they didn't actually DO the crimes.  The actual criminals died with their victims.  Who was there to "go after?"  Then there was that whole illegal and unconstitutional invasion of Iraq that made even less sense, and I knew they were lying from the get-go.

      Now drones have been added - less than a full week in office when Obama approved that idiocy.

      Then today, in a Friday News Dump:
      Pentagon to send missiles, 400 troops to Turkey

      I can't begin to express my dismay and how underwhelmed I am with this further stupidity.

      How not to win friends and make new enemies....

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
