    Most in the Republican base don't even know they have a Doctrine. To put it simply, the Bush/Republican Doctrine is to attack and level a country you think might one day, in the far future, threaten the US.

    An example of the Bush/Republican Doctrine being applied? Iraq.

    An example of Republicans wanting to apply the Bush/Republican Doctrine?
    Bomb bomb bomb....bomb bomb Iran.

    Why this Doctrine didn't work in Iraq?

    George Bush tricked the US into invading Iraq. There was no "ownership" by the people. What did they do? They rioted and looted their own country. They attacked the Christians living there since the time of Christ reducing the population by up to a million. They put their women in Burkas. They put up a monument to the man who threw shoes at our president. Maybe it was a thanks, "Here, I love you so much, take my shoes", others think it was a deadly insult. The people simply were not "invested" because this wasn't a "revolution".

    Obama in Libya supported those in revolt. They are invested. Very little looting has been reported. The US is not responsible for nation building because we didn't tear down that nation. The people in Libya are invested in their own future.

    Overseas, Obama's actions are being described as "thoughtful" and "wise". Right wingers call him "boy" and "manchild". Of course, I'm sure there is nothing "racial" in those comments.

    The reason Obama has been much more successful overseas than domestically is because it's much easier for the Republican Party to block his actions domestically. I suspect he would achieve the same level of success if Republicans worked with him instead of demanding he fail, or at least get out of the way. Of course, that won't happen. Because they want him to "fail".

    So you had no problem with Qaddafi slaughtering his own people? Hmmm, interesting.

    Bush "liberated" people. Did they ask to be "liberated"? If you were "liberated" and didn't ask to be "liberated", were you really "liberated"? And why do the Iraqi women say they had it better under Saddam? Look how terrible they were treated. That leads you to believe being "liberated" when you didn't ask is "worse". Hmmm. Something to think about? I suspect you don't waste your time "thinking". Am I right?

    So killing people Obama's way is better than killing them Bush's way?

    Either way, people are still dead. And honestly, I'm not sure we are safer.

    You hypo critic ass hole. Saddam Hussein killed up to a million, maybe more, of his own people and you blast Bush. Obamaturd is too spineless to actually go into Libya, so he just bombs them. Typical leftwing bullshit!! IDIOT!!

    Obama stopped Moammar's troops from killing citizens. Are you saying that was wrong?

    Did Iraq ask to be "liberated"? Are they liberated now? Living under Sharia Law by constitution? Women used to be able to work where they want and wear what they wanted. Now they are slaves in Burkas. Is that what you support?

    Bush got Congressional Approval for his wars, Obama has not.

    In fact, Obama said the Libya Adventure was to preserve the image of the UN. It had nothing to do with the US. It is an illegal war for which Obama should be impeached.

    "There is no fail like an rdean fail. Ask for it by name!" :lol:
