I really don't know where you listen nor do I care but I hear about troop deaths every time they happen, hopefully we will have no more. That's pretty good, start two wars, not one but two then blame the next guy for troop deaths in the wars that you started, gotta be a classic. Why not look up how many wars have there been that were not funded, that will also be Obama's fault in your book. If your a veteran then you should well know that people die in war & you get injured back from those wars but to get technical there was only one war but neither country Iraq or Afghanistan attacked the U.S. it was two occupations of sovereign nations. This whole conversation is all for naught here unless Nixon started it.

Again you missed the point.

What Nixon did wrong is child's play to what's been happening with this administration. Why aren't the Dems calling for impeachment like they did with Nixon ?

They certainly have plenty to go after. It's not just one big scandal from a break in and wire tapping, but many big scandals, at least one so far involving the loss of many lives. Maybe you think it doesn't matter, Or, it's all someone else's fault because obummer didn't hear about it until reading the papers, or watching CNN.

And BTW, I didn't say the body counts were all obummer's fault. I said there was a big change in REPORTING of body counts as soon as he became President. In other words, we're seeing a double standard when it comes to obummer and what he's being allowed to get away with.

And, since you brought it up, you forget that we were attached by Saddam. Gulf War 1 was not over. There was no formal ending of the war. It was still under a ceasefire agreement only. During which, Saddam butchered thousands of Kurds and was firing on our jets in the no-fly zone. Plus, selling oil for weapons and trying to get more WMD equipment and technology. As part of that ceasefire agreement, Iraq was allowed to only sell oil to use the money for food and medicines for the Iraqi people.

He was warned many times by us and by many, many UN resolutions to comply with the terms of the ceasefire, or there would be consequences, including military action, yet he ignored those warnings for ten years.

And, just so we're clear, I don't hate obummer. I just have zero respect for him. What I hate is what he's doing to the country. And I hate how so many people are so willing to let him get away with far worse than what Nixon had to resign over.

SB, just WTF appointed the U.S. as the worlds police, good guys & all around peachy dancers, why can't you get it all those countries are just that "those countries" none of our business. Don't say that they were bad guys killing their own people, that's their business it's sad but not our problem the only reason we went there is oil & to show off & sell arms, if not why aren't we going into other African countries? By the way Saddam didn't attack us & the Korean War is still on.
What do you want if thankfully the body counts are finally dropping? Like I said I hear it all the time when we lose troops, don't know why you don't. Might not be too many protests against the war since we got out of Iraq (or maybe you didn't hear that one) & we are getting out of the other except Congress seems destined to keep some there, IMO we should have been out long ago, it takes more time to withdraw but we should have gone the first time that idiot Karzai told us he didn't want or need us.

Sam,

Iraq did in fact attack US and British planes many times patrolling in what was clearly the no-fly zones after Gulf war 1 and before Gulf War 2. Don't take my word for, look it up.

Other than the Korean War also still being a ceasefire, what's that got to do with any of this ? Maybe you'd like to add a few more wars to cloud the debate ?

And, while we're still off topic, we became the world's policeman because no one wanted the job, or had the resources to do the job either, .... except folks like Hitler, Stalin, Tojo, Mao Zedong. Maybe we should have let them be the world's cop, huh ?

Meanwhile, since you still seem to be ignoring the whole point of the OP, can I assume your OK with obummer getting away with so many scandals and impeachable offences - the least of which are equal to what brought down Nixon ?

Yes, or no ?

The whole point was laws have changed since Nixon, if Obama does something that he can be impeached for I'm sure he will be, after all that's all the right has been trying since he took office. If it's doable then do it & quit flapping your jaws about it, simple as that. Get over it the election is over & you lost twice, that should tell you something. Sooner or later the GOP will get their chance once again & I'm sure they will find some country to invade & put us back in a depression.

Wait....what? If? IF!? I'm pretty sure he HAS broken a lot of laws and HAS done quite a few things that are considered impeachable infractions. And he has yet been brought up on any kind of charges. I wouldn't be surprised if this D-bag tries to get a third term.

Look, I know Bammy is your boy but the guy is a traitor and a dictator and is going to put us all in internment camps and march us to mass graves and ovens just like his great uncle did to the gays, Jews and Poles.

IMF, your letting your true feelings spill out, I'm proud of you as most won't admit to the bottom line. As for the impeachable infractions why not ask your Congress about that, then again I guess they couldn't find a good lawyer on either side of both houses. All these infractions & no proceedings, maybe Congress needs to listen to talking heads in the faux news media. ;)

If the Republican's take over the Senate it's a better bet that they will move to impeach in the House.

So, Kennedy drew cartoon pictures of missiles in Cuba, just so we could have a Cuban missile crisis ?

Paul


No, he used missiles in Turkey so we could have the Cuban Missile Crisis....people always forget that part. Or maybe they just weren't taught that in their public school education.

Newton had it right. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction....I assume they still teach that in school?

Yep, & just the threat of a missile system in Europe kept Russia in check until somehow he found it didn't exist. Perhaps now is the time to start installing them.

This short attention span theater of yours is getting old.

You wondered why "if" Obama had done something illegal, then he'd be impeached. If you can't see it, then you are willfully ignorant and me explaining it to you is a waste of time.

"......maybe Congress needs to listen to talking heads in the faux news media. ;)..,"

Your right Sam, lets put on MSNBC, CNN and all those other "faux news" programs that have such a large market share compared to Fox News. :D

In fact lets also put on all those liberal talk radio shows too. Oh, wait, there are none because they were so good, and truthful, and informative :roll: , . . they dried-up and disappeared for lack of anyone wanting to listen ! Maybe we can call it "poof news",.... as in, where'd they go ? :D
