4. I agree with you, when they are in charge, the rules change--
however, what are we doing in Iraq right now? Peacekeeping and nation-building, essentially. That's what we were doing in Somalia and Haiti. We weren't willing to lose DOZENS of soldiers for those missions, but suddenly THOUSANDS, with no end in sight, is A-OK. Yes, supposedly the reasons are "fightin' em' over there so we don't fight them here" bullshit, but everyone knows that's a crock. The difference is oil.
