Barack - we don't need to be the police in every country. Keep
our troops and our money home!
It's ironic that right after releasing 5 of the highest ranking Taliban
terrorists in captivity (in exchange for a U.S.military traitor), Obama
announces these plans to bolster our military presence in areas outside of the
US, at a cost of an additional billion dollars which we do not have. This action just adds that much more to our already record (and alarmingly
high) federal deficit. Very conflicting actions on the part of the
Brilliant, just a few short weeks ago people on this site were criticising Obama
for being weak against Putin. He boosts the military presence in the area (which
I think is a stupid move) and we have calls of not being the world police and
saying the military costs too much.Will you guys please make up your
@ UT Brit:I have a strong suspicion that there are varying opinions
concerning all the political activities that take place there in Britain. So it
shouldn't be a surprise to you that the same thing happens in the USA. Some agree with certain political moves while others strongly disagree.
That's how it is and has always been. There is never going to a time when
people of any country all "make up their minds" in complete concurrence.
Please think things through more thoroughly before making such a
ConcinnityI don't think you comprehended my statement. People
who were wanting to boost military presence in the area ("Obama is making us
look weak before Putin") a few weeks ago are now saying its a terrible idea
when Obama does just that.Do you understand now or do you wish me to
simplify it further? Its miraculous how people can change their opinions in such
a short space of time.
UT Brit,Please show us where either myself or Brio said we wanted to
boost military presence in the area just a few weeks ago.You're
quite adamant this happened, so you will be able to back up your claims
right?Simple task right?Hopefully it doesn't
overwhelm you or cause you not to reply(run away)
@Chris BMeh, if there is one thing I have found reading your
comments Chris, whatever Obama is doing you want the opposite of that. I have
never read anything you have put that supports anything Obama has done. Are you
saying you supported Obama a couple of months ago and agreed with his actions
not to have a force build up in the area?
We may have pushed Russia into this conflict.We need to stay out of
it, Drill our own oil
How about boosting military presence along the border?
@ UT Brit:You have provided no proof whatsoever regarding your
negative contentions. I read these comment sections regularly and have not
noticed any specific commenters changing their minds and opinions regarding
Obama adminstration actions. Most of those comments have been quite consistent
with how they feel, and with their minds made up long ago... based upon the
actions taking place in Washington DC. Are there different people
who are supporting and/or condemning Obama's actions? Obviously. Some will
always support and others will usually condemn. It's how open political
systems work. But don't make the mistake and erroneous assumption that the
same people are doing both... unless you have some proof. So far you've
provided none. Your time would be better spent closer to home trying
to fix the myriad of problems currently taking place and very evident in British
UT Brit,Are you saying you completely made up your comment of the
same people on these boards changing their minds?Yep, we called you
out and your proof?Nothing.Just as we expectedWhatever credibility you had when you made those claims is gone when you cant
back up something you were so adamant was true.Speaks volumes
UT Brit,You are the one who said I supported more military presence
in these areas just weeks ago.Either myself or Brio, or both of us.
Well, can you back up your made up claims?Apparently
not.Game. Set. Match
We don't need any presence in Europe. Europe can defend themselves. Until I see and French battalion defending the US border I think
I'm justified. We spend 5 times as much as the rest of the world combined
on national military expenditures which is completely insane.
Screwdriver, one of the few times I agree with you.And yes! Let the
Afghans take care of their military training.We have supplied eighty
percent of the worlds military weapons.
