  1. "Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different," Obama said. "And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action."

    Whats the difference?
     
  2. Lucrum

    Lucrum

    :D Oh there isn't any, unless you're an Obama supporter.
     
  3. If you have to ask, after the matter has been explained to you by your own president, and more than once, then you're probably not smart enough to understand. Case in point:
     
  4. I like differing opinions but am still trying to understand the difference. Maybe I'm not that smart. :confused:
     
  5. Here, let the prez himself explain it to you:

  6. Obama then: SUNAPEE, N.H. – Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday the United States cannot use its military to solve humanitarian problems and that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.

    “Well, look, if that’s the criteria by which we are making decisions on the deployment of U.S. forces, then by that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo right now — where millions have been slaughtered as a consequence of ethnic strife — which we haven’t done,” Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press.

    Obama now: “Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries,” Obama said at the National Defense University in Washington. “The United States of America is different.”
     
  7. Where are all those lefty "no war for oil/israel" protesters now? There sure were a lot of them when Bush went into Iraq.
     
  8. If you do not understand the difference between Iraq and Libya, or the difference in US involvement between the two, then perhaps you should just donate your organs right now to people who could put them to better use.

    Unless, of course, you are just engaging in false equivalency. In which case you're just an asshole.

    But I'll let you decide.

  10. A homophobic racist as well? Okay, a cognitively-challenged asshole homophobic racist whose organs should be donated immediately to those who really need and deserve them.
