Oh crap Herman. Who got us into the Spanish American war? What good did it do? Who put the arms on the Luisitania that was Wilson's excuse for WW1? FDR aided China against the Japaneese and then we fought them in Korea. He was in love with 'Uncle' Joe Stalin and his policies led to the 'bleed' of the cold war. LBJ fabricated the Gulf of Tonkin incident to escalate the Viet Nam war and waste American lives. So shove it.

"My fellow Americans, we have traveled through more than a decade under the dark cloud of war," said Barack Obama from Bagram Air Base.

"Here in the predawn darkness, we can see the light of a new day on the horizon. The Iraq War is over. The number of troops in harm's way has been cut in half, and more will be coming home. ... The time of war began in Afghanistan, and this is where it will end."

Interesting comment, that last.

If "the time of war" is at an end, does that rule out U.S. military action in Syria...
