Remember that some of these things that led to 100's of thousands of US and foreign citizens/soldiers dying did not actually happen or were ambiguous: Gulf of Tonkin, USS Maine from his examples. Be careful.

andrew153.. Funny enough the second and lesser so the firts world war, the usa had a decent reason to jion in, even though they didnt want to.. There is something werong with a society as a whole if they see war as a primary way to end conflicts. It becomes worse if they start wars.

the usa isnt the policeforce of the world, they portray themself that way though.. The UN should have that place.

The usa may be a world power, just like Russia was once and china seems to become now. The UN was created to prevent 'world powers' to 'police' the smaller countries.

Now, i wil not say that the usa didnt do anything good for the world, cause in a lot of situations they did.. but in recent history, i cant name one war that they were actually the good side..

Oh and for sake of argument, 60+ years ago isnt recent

OK I have a plan. The CIA can drop a nuke in downtown Manhattan. When the fallout settles, you'll be at war. Make sure the prevailing wind is blowing from the East so the fallout dosn't fall anywhere that matters

Nobody else would dare start a war while we are around, or else you'll end up like Serbia.

So that's why you tip-toe around China?

"I also don't, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But I think both the Iranian and the Israeli governments recognize that, when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. "
- Obama

The Dems and repubs do agree on something!

It would never work. If the Iranians started raining down missiles on Israel and blowing up US ships in the Gulf, Obama would apologize to them.

The isolation will be relative, it won't be exactly like before 1945, but it won't be so hyper-interventionist like today. And trade will be completely open, but that's not what I refer to in "isolationism".


It's called non-interventionism, and yes it is policy we need to adopt.

Wonder what this fire is he speaks of lets wait and see!

See a pattern here?

"Markust - These wars are Bush era logic?"

The two wars I listed are the direct result of Bush era logic. We do not need another preemptive strike.

'Some are doing this, as voices like Ron Paul are becoming accepted. However, leftists need to listen to Kucinich more than Obama.'

I agree that Kucinich is voice of reason. Unfortunately he lost his seat to redistricting. And to be fair, Obama has been tougher on Israel than most presidents, although the bar has been set pretty low on that.

It would really benefit our standing in the region for the U.S. to approach Israel from more of a neutral position. Unfortuately, there is a strong lobby in congress against that principle.

However, I think for the American public to get to this point, there has to be a significant confrontation that turns America off from this ideology. Iraq and Afghanistan did this pretty well, but not completely. Unfortunately, I think the next will be Iran.

It's important for people on the right to accept that attacking Iran is pointless - even if it is just. Some are doing this, as voices like Ron Paul are becoming accepted. However, leftists need to listen to Kucinich more than Obama. They seem keen on intervening in places like Libya, as well all those drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen....and "helping" Syrian Rebels. All pointless and counterproductive.

'When we go back into isolation similar to that before 1945, something I predict to happen soon'

What makes you think that will happen? I'm not sure it's possible for the U.S. to go into isolation in today's world. The rest of the world is too close, and we have much more of a "world economy" than we did pre-WWII.

Modwain - there is a reason we have started all the major wars in the past few decades. We are the world's superpower, the world's policeman. Nobody else would dare start a war while we are around, or else you'll end up like Serbia. We wiped them out with basically no casualties.


When we go back into isolation similar to that before 1945, something I predict to happen soon, I think we will see the world return to state it was in before World War 2. We keep the peace. Sometimes with war, ironically. Europe could not exist in its current form without us in this role. Already, as we are receding as the world superpower, Europe is ripping at the seems.

Markust - These wars are Bush era logic? What about Clinton getting involved in Muslim nations? Or Bush 1? Or how about LBJ and Kennedy in Vietnam? Or Truman in Korea? All of these wars have a common theme, they're not unique. Watch Full Metal Jacket, it is perfect commentary on these Bush wars, even though it's talking about LBJ and Kennedy's war.

We should not attack Iran, those scum are not worth a single American life. If they do try to kill all the Jews - which is likely and is an attack plan that has more historical precedent than anything else in history - then we invite them all to live in America. We could use them, they are educated immigrants who could help use in future innovations.

However, if we did attack Iran, we wouldn't be starting WW3 anymore than the UK did by declaring war on Germany.

'Ya there scientists mysteriously exploded must've been all that radiation! I myself don't want to see us involved there but see no need to hold Isreal back.'

Not sure what you're referring to. There is even conflicting evidence about whether they even have a weapons program. Earlier this year, Sec. Panetta even said that Iran does not have a weapons program "at this point" (said that around January/February).

"If you were in Isreals shoes you'd want the US to attack Iran before they nuked you too."

Iran does not have nukes at this point. Israel does have nukes. Any strike would at this point be unjustifiable, and would further our already shaky reputation in the Middle East. It would also cause serious harm to a shaky world economy.

In short, a strike against Iran would be stupid. The former head of Mossad agrees. Link

so, after having started most major wars in the last 40 or 50 odd years, he advocates that the usa should start another one? not overtly but for all intents and purposes ,start another one?

what makes these people so war hungry.. i dont get it. people die all the time, dont they die fast enough? do we need another war?

And though i am no fan of extremism, wether it be religious or any other way, and i may disagree with the theocratic government of Iran, i have to admit that they havent started a war in 200 years.. what makes you think they will start now mcgovern?
