Why are we still in Iraq? Why are we still in Afghanistan? Why is Obama bombing Lybia and telling our congress to screw off because it's none of their business?

At some point, the difference between incredibly stupid and incredibly smart ceased to matter.

The most obvious explanation is that American companies that build war supplies are making profits beyond their wildest dreams. And ending a war, any war, would decrease their bottom lines.

So it's just possible that stupid and smart don't come into the equation. All that matters is more. More wars for more profits, so that the companies profiting can give more to politicians, who, in turn, will give them more ongoing wars. What a disgusting, vicious circle.

America has lost its middle class, its moral compass, its soul, and is pouring its wealth down a rat hole.

And worst of all, there doesn't seem to be one goddamn thing that any of us can do about it. Any suggestions?

It is a well established fact that two-term President George W. Bush has a higher IQ and grade point average than John F. Kerry. How dumb do the DUmmies think Kerry must be!?

President Bush was smart enough to know that you don't wage war in Afghanistan. Just ask the Brits and Ruskies. He was smart enough to bomb the shit out of them, and leave.

president hussein is dumb enough to try to play FDR........yah, Afghanistan is the RIGHT war! Now it's Libya. Next, it's America.

Smart and competent are two separate traits. If you hadn't figured it out already Obama has proven it.
