Remember when Democrats were the doves and all Republicans and conservatives were warmongering hawks who only want to spread American imperialism and colonialism throughout the world?
Well, we do, and it wasnt that long ago. Now, suddenly, the Garbage Party is all about getting into, and staying, in as many brushfire wars as we can possibly do.
That is, as long as that scandal-ridden president, Barack Obama, started them.

Democrats used to say they hated war while investigating in all sorts of munitions companies.
Now they don’t even pretend.
By the same token, rank and file Republicans - - and many Freepers used to be very supportive of Iraq War- style invasions and nationbuilding, until Trump made us think again and realize we should focus on our own border and our own countrys problems
Trump was the first GOP presidential candidate to publicly say that Bushs invasion of Iraq was a disastrous mistake, and that its time to stop the endless Middle East incursions. Many Republicans booed him when he first said that during the primaries, but now most average Republicans I talk to agree he was and is right
Unfortunately, most Republicans in Congress havent woken up yet, witness them attacking him over Syria withdrawal. But I hope theyll eventually see sense.
They are nothing but hypocrites.
A Hillary Clinton presidency would have had America extending the Obama ISIS imperialism and war caliphate jihad march. Many on the right are cool with this also.
At least the @never Trumpers are consistent. They always love war. But speaking of Dems I wonder what the late Dem Sen Frank Church would say about his party’s love affair with the Intel Community and the FBI.
I am all for bombing Iran.
Yup. They bombed Libya and there wasn’t a peep from either the Rats or Rinos. Talk about hypocrisy. But that’s how they roll. Bastards.
I am all for bombing Iran.
Is that you, John Bolton? So glad Trump fired you!
It is them or us.
Yes, thats what Bush said about Iraq.
Iran will have nuclear weapons and will use them to kill millions.
Obama said the same thing about Libya.
Iran will have nuclear weapons and will use them to kill millions.”
Bush said the exact same thing about Iraq, as a reason to bomb and invade.
In contrast, when the Soviets had thousands of nukes pointed at us and threatened to “bury us” - Kruschev’s words - Reagan wasn’t stupid enough to follow your (and Bush’s) idea of starting a war against them. He beat them without war.
Glad Trump follows the Reagan way, not the failed Bush way that you promote.
The russians are not as crazy as the mullahs. Iraq shipped much of they weapons of mass destruction to Iran. Canada brought back many tons of yellowcake uranium which was not to be used for baking.
The same can be said for these “free trade” agreements. The Democrats used to stand for the American worker. Now that President Trump is working to bring manufacturing back, they are free traitors.
No, Iraq shipped the WMDs to Saudi Arabia, didn’t you know that?
No, the Bekah Valley is not in Iran or Saudi Arabia.
Yes, Saudia Arabia. So do you want to bomb Saudis too? Nearly all the 911 hijakers wer from Saudi. If you don’t want to bomb Saudi in retaliation, are you pro-Islamist?
Also, I assume you want to bomb Syria and Assad, right?
