  •  not a lot of trust left after the last 12 years (5+ / 0-)

    and considering that our current war is so mired down, how do they sell us another one that is expected to be another bowl of duck soup?

    Bush's words after the first strikes of missiles and bombs hit  in Kabul and Kandahar, 26 days after 9-11, way back in the year of 2001......

    "We will not waver, we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail."

    "Peace and freedom will prevail."

    We faltered a lot along the way, changing goals constantly even now, and success has not yet come, and we certainly have gotten tired, and peace did not come, nor did freedom prevail. But the war has not ended, so at least in that respect, we have not wavered as the second president to run the war increased US troops to over 100,000.

    Just trust us cannot be the standard for war
