It is too early to say IF the bombings were from outsiders, but you have a very good point. Do you all still think that it is a good idea to stop fighting to make the world a safer place or shall we sit back and watch them turn our country into an unsafe country just like they have done to their own?

Likely a terror event in Boston and yet we want to let millions of illegals remain in this country. Time to evict them all and let them go about immigrating the proper way. Too many holes in our border.

North Korea states 'nuclear war is unavoidable' as it declares first target will be Japan. Just this morning the almighties agent was seen walking down the ladder of his private transport jet saying he was there to defuse the tense situation. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stark warning to North Korea on Friday not to test-fire a mid-range missile, while tamping down anxiety caused by a new U.S. intelligence report suggesting significant progress in the communist regime's nuclear weapons program. SOunds like the same type story that the left wing hates President Bush for. What if after we attack this nation they do not have nukes? Obama lied and people died or look at what the administration made up to get us into this war? Lets here from the anti-war people lets berate the Nobel Peace prize winner! He is as much of a war monger as any other president in US history!

Ah yes on topic... lets go to Benghazi now and see how the coverup is coming along. Where are the survivors? Why so secretive and misinformation?

Lets play a Bush and look for weapons of mass distraction. Should we start at Washington or Albany ?

Missed my point entirely RS. Cuts never should have been enacted and taxes should have been raised to pay for it.

Finally the truth, North Korea most likely has nuke missiles but Obama decided to deceive the public with misinformation. So now North Korea's words carry more integrity then the Obama administrations! I am sure we will hear from the Democrats how this was for our own best interest…”what good would it do if we did know the truth”. I guess there is a mutual distrust between the American people and Obama.

moderation, you're incorrect on several points, mainly:
-Bush tax cuts were never meant to be permanent and actually had a sunset date of 12/31/12
-Bush's wars, to the tune of several hundred billion dollars, were paid for by borrowing money on interest, versus using money in reserves; this is part of the biggest reason things are in such bad shape now, since we're now paying back those loans

Bush's wars were the first time in US history taxes were not raised to pay for them. Not only did he not raise taxes, he cut them. We ask young men and women to put their lives on the line and the biggest sacrifice we're willing to make is putting a lousy magnet on our cars. Where is the shared sacrifice that our grandparents and their generation displayed?
We are still paying for the Korean war via a tax on landline phone bills that has never gone away. Been there for decades now.

Discobulous, now that was funny! Not a single one of those lifer unemployed disability takers want a job! Today they have something better than a job, it is easy street benefits health insurance, transportation and income even a cell phone! Who needs work?

And who do you suppose will finance this military build up? Answer: The Republicans, the same ones who claim they are trying to cut federal spending.

Scarecrow57, that's not the same comparison. Military spending didn't bring us out of the war; the massive surge in the need for private-sector employees to make planes, munitions, massive navy ships, supplies, etc., is what helped, after putting people on the payroll, which added tax revenue in both income and sales tax off the money they then spent.

You are right Americans came together and worked long hours for little pay to get the things made that would enable us to win. People donated time, money and anything-everything that would give us any advantage to win. When Bush went to war, it was because America was once again attacked. The congress got together and in true bipartisan fashion voted to give him the power to declare war. It does not take an intellect to know what happened and where all that support went. I am not confident that the USA could ever again mount a war and win it with the divisive ways we are lead today. Our enemies need only sit back and watch us... divided we are! Much easier to conquer now than when we stood together.

So rs, if it was good in 1945 then Military Spending should always be good...
However, let us not forget that in the 1950s most of Europe and Asia were in ruins. The U.S. industrial base had a virtual monopoly on all production.
Scarecrow57, I think you'd have a tough time finding people that would disagree in saying WW2 brought the US and rest of the world out of the Depression. Factories putting people to work building planes, munitions, military supplies, communications, services, etc. Those are payrolled jobs you know.
Of course this all led to what many believe one of the greatest times to live in the US in the 20th century: the 1950's.
While were on the subject of who's war was who's, in 1956 Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev slammed his shoe on a podium and proclaimed 'We will bury you without firing a shot'. 30 some odd years later Ronald Reagan ended the USSR, without a shot. It was accomplished by what Khrushchev himself predicted: Economic superiority. In that case the old adage came to pass: Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. So, heads up NORK's.

I am just going to cut & paste a comment I posted on an editorial from the other day.
I hope the US doesn't try to invade. I really don't want to lose more friends to needless war and have to pay more taxes to "re-build" another country when we need to be re-building our own.

Oops, I meant "wouldn't be as brazen".

I don't think the young North Korean leader would be as brazen without China and Russia standing behind him. The question is, at what point does he force action from the west regardless.

RS "Portnoy, I always wonder if GWB started his wars as an attempt to stimulate the economy just like our involvement in WW2 helped get us out of the Great Depression. Except where FDR succeeded, Bush failed miserably."
Horrible Troll attempt, Even I know you aren't dumb enough to believe that. But it does bring up a valid point. If war spending brought us out of the great depression then this war spending should also be good. Sounds like there wasn't enough of it.
