Got into an argument with someone about this on my Facebook a couple of weeks ago. He was your typical 'let's kill em' type person. I think it's our responsibility to produce our own drugs so that we stop putting money in these thugs' pockets, because without that money, they wouldn't have a stranglehold on the Mexican government.

Perry and Roseanne ticket? The Kill Ticket?


But seriously Gonzo, you are as bad as the media taking a news report and jazzing it up. Considering our military has been involved in Columbia for decades not to mention Predator Strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, etc.
It might not be right, and that is a highly subjective question, but it has been a policy of the US government and other governments for a few decades. You seem to think you have found that water is not wet. Perry is not advocating new wars explicitly.

Now, personally I am not in favor of all these little wars but as President Obama kindly reminds us, in Libya, we have a duty to intervene in the world's affairs. I thought it was just Bush. But hey, Bush had Congressional authority for his action.

Sounds like an oil argument. I have very self-serving reasons for breaking OPEC. I want to return the OPEC countries, including Venezuela, to the abject and backwards existence they would have, without the money we pay to them for oil.

How much has that war in Colombia cost so far?
What (if anything) have you got in return for that investment?

I don't know the answer to the first, but I think that the answer to the second would be "basically nothing".

Combine that with the fact that such wars have a rather bad habit of spilling over the borders, and you might very well end up with Chinese paid American Apache helicopters firing on targets in Texan suburbs. Do you really think that should be approved without discussion?

I don't know, how much did it cost us to save your little country (among the rest of Europe)? All we seem to have gotten from that is an ungrateful netizen :P

It is not something you can say is "something or nothing".

He is a candidate with talking points, and as it was pointed out you are pretending he said something that he did not necessarily say.

First, I am not at all sure that the USA would have gone to war with Germany if Germany had not declared war upon the USA. After that, your options were to either surrender or to fight.
Second, the Soviets did a lot more to save my country than the USA did. Should that make me love Stalin?


Quote:

I thought that I just did exactly that.

Quote:

He said that it might be a good idea to let American soldiers take part in the drug war in Mexico. Based on the history of the past century, that would make the conflict worse, not better.

Do you truly believe that he would be in favor of letting US troops operate as Mexican law enforcement, subject to Mexican law and the Mexican justice system for any (alleged) things they do there?
If not, then they would be seen as foreign invaders. Just as is the case in Afghanistan, Iraq and Colombia, to name but a few. How long until more troops were needed? And even more? And then how long until the fighting did indeed spill over the borders?

Just ask yourself how happy Americans would be about having Mexican soldiers in your streets, "purely to enforce the embargo on exporting guns to Mexico", of course. Add to that the idea that those soldiers would not be subject to US law, and you may start to figure out why this is not a good idea.
It is a very bad suggestion, coming from someone who might possibly become US president.

Mexico won't even accept that much from us, as the article you linked makes clear.

Well, altering our drug policy just to affect another country seems a little wold-policey to me.

But anything will grow in America. I just think we could legalize, import, and tax to the same effect. The price would go way down. And the money that is given to thugs won't be nearly enough to allow them to keep on thugging.

It's spelled Colombia, dumbass. Columbia is a college in NYC. If there was a military presence there, I would have left sooner.

Normally I wouldn't care, but you can't base your credibility on your familiarity with the subtleties of the law and language, and fuck up basic precision. People think we are dumb enough as it is, and will leap at any chance to rub this shit in our faces.
Quote:

The other countries seemed to have policies of 'let the US do whatever it wants'. So we can only intervene because the rest of the world lets us.

Although right/wrong isn't nearly as subjective as you make it out to be.
Quote:

Yeah, stick to your talking points buddy. I don't see how you're any better than Gonzo there, you both have pretty obvious biases revealed in selective reporting/commenting. But yeah, do your thing.

That's a rather large leap. Even if we assume Americans are as evil as you seem to believe, hypocritical self interest would protect us. Can you imagine the Fox News contributors creaming themselves to use that?

I think Res may have referred more to rebuilding Europe. The Marshall Plan and all. In fact, America may see itself as the World Police simply to prevent the world from needing that kind of money again. Once you guys all pay us back, we might give up on the whole thing. I'm pretty sure only Germany has paid us back so far.

Oh, and World Court? That's at least as presumptuous as World Police, is it not?

It is a very bad suggestion. But let's not divide by zero here: the fact that the suggestion was so bad makes him invalid as the US President.

Impossible to know, FDR was spoiling for a fight as subsequent history has shown.

Not very informed on even the most basic of history, are we Gonzo. Even Stalin said it was the US who allowed the allies to succeed. Not to mention that whole lend-lease.And also the fact that the US provided much needed manpower to allow not allow the reinforcement of Western Theater troops to the Eastern Front. I wont deny Stalin was smart in refusing to meet the Blitzkrieg but you obviously display no knowledge of even that detail.

Not going to bother with the rest as it is more of the same.

It's called taking responsibility for our own vices, rather than letting another country suffer for them. Attacking another country because we can't kick our drug habit - now that is world-policey.

If only we had another example of this type of issue in our nation's history with which to take our queues from...quick, can anyone name a time in our history when a drug was briefly prohibited by law and what we did to solve the upsurge in crime that accompanied that prohibition? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I thought it was pretty clear that I was joking. I agree with Davian here. Which I thought was made very clear with the very next line of my post.

I agree that American demand for drugs has created the economic forces perpetuating chaos in Mexico.

Definitely. How they would use it is less clear, though.
They might be violently opposed to it, if a Democrat government were to go after ... let's say ... non-colored reasonably affluent drug users.
Or they might heartily approve of it, if a Republican administration is going after "drug pushing illegal immigrants".

So I don't think it is quite as straightforward as you seem to think. But it is possible you'd also figured out that there were two distinct ways in which FOX News could be happy with this.

If only. I do not think it will do anything to lower his chances. It may not help him either, but that's the most.

His remark only invalidates him with those who think it through, and that's at most a minority of the voters.
