4 in benghazi + one in fast and furious compared to how many dead Americans in Iraq? Does everyone know that Romney had the same foreign policy advisers as George W. Bush?

Dear DSM,

Eisenhower lost thousands of troops in the invasion of Europe in 1944. We won the war, stopped
Hitler, and Americans were, and are today, far better off for having done that.

Pres. Bush stopped Saddam. We're all better off. We won the Iraq War, unless your preferred
politicians, the Democrats, throw away that victory.

Dupes will respond with "Five who died for a political agenda and several thousands who died to free millions."

Millions were freed from Saddam; but how should this eight year Republican social engineering have been paid for???

Here's what the Republican party would put on the tombstones of the thousands American soldiers who were killed in Iraq --- "These American soldiers were the errand boys for the United Nations and fought the Valiant fight in Iraq. Hooorrah!"

William F. Buckley once noted that he was 19 when the Cold War began at the Yalta conference. The year the Berlin Wall came down, he became a senior citizen. In other words, he explained, anti-Communism was a defining feature of conservatism his entire adult life. Domestically, meanwhile, the right was largely a "leave me alone coalition": Religious and traditional conservatives, overtaxed businessmen, Western libertarians, and others fed up with government social engineering and economic folly. The foreign policy battle against tyrannical statism abroad only buttressed the domestic antagonism toward well-intentioned and occasionally democratic statism at home.
