    Clinton went to war in Kosovo. No one there attacked us.

    A Democrat took us to war with Germany, who didn't attack us.
    A Democrat took us to war in Vietnam, who didn't attack us.
    A Democrat took us to war with Korea, who didn't attack us.
    A Democrat nearly took us to war with Cuba and the USSR, who didn't attack us.
    A far left Democrat took us to war in WW1, against nations who didn't attack us.
    A bunch of Southern Democrats started the combat of the Civil War, against the north.
    A Democrat is currently authorizing strikes against Pakistan, who didn't attack us.


    In fact, over 210 years, our wars have almost all been started by Democrats, against foes who didn't attack us. Exceptions: war on Japan, Bush 1 vs Iraq, Bush 2 vs Iraq.



    Those damn war mongering, oil hungry Democrats.

    And to date, it's only a Democrat president who has ever:

    - Authorized the round up and detainment of US citizens based only on race and ethnicity
    - Authorized the use of nuclear weapons on an enemy.


    Those fascist, racist, war hungery Democrats.

    JFK invaded Cuba because we didn't like Castro's ideology. Cuba never attacked us. JFK = George W. Bush, except Bush got the job done, JFK didn't.

    Kosovo declared war on us? Did I miss the Kosovo bombers flying over North Carolina? Djioubuti could declare war on us. Does that mean we have to go? Kazyakistan could declare war on us, do we have to go? Clinton invaded a nation that did not attack us.

    And yes, Dem's stopped Hitler. He was an evil SOB, and I applaud Dmes for it:clap2:
    And yes, Dem's helped stop or slow communism in 20th century, I appluad the 1/2 of Dems who hated communism:clap2:

    And Bush toppled a tyrant who murdered his own people, tortured and raped them, used WMD's on his own people. I applaud him:clap2:


    So can I expect, now, for Dems to stop calling Bush a war monger? Seeing as Dems' have started every war except Iraq and Afghanistan?

    (Wow, just wow)

    Comparing pre 60's to post 60's Democrats is too broad a stroke, that is, the party changed measurably from FDR to (say) McGovern, who represented the anti-war left.

    Pre 60's Democrats were, on balance, more inclined to military intervention than isolationist Conservatives (who would eventually abandon isolationism for Cold War anti-communism).

    Which is to say: I'm not sure your attempt to create contiguity makes sense. Putting FDR and Clinton on the same list without qualification seems like a Talk Radio simplification designed for low information voters.

    Side note. It is unclear weather JFK was a true Cold Warrior or if he was being a wise politician, seizing upon the powerful anti-communism that emerged within the country after WWII. There is definitely no agreement as to whether or not he was for escalation in Vietnam or if he was yielding to the forces which had collected in the State Department, Pentagon, and Intelligence Agencies. The momentum of the Cold War (or War on Terrorism) is like the momentum of any large government policy with its feeder network of industries, coalitions, and special interests, e.g., consider the New Deal which Nixon & Eisenhower bowed to, i.e., once something becomes part of government, it becomes so powerful that presidents often have to compromise with it. The fact that JFK fired Dulles and was trying to break up the centralized power and secrecy of the CIA (just before his murder) suggests he was pushing back against the hawks. We will never know.

    You really need to get your facts straightened out. Eisenhower took us to war in Vietnam. I think he was a republican.
