I'm in no way endorsing the Democrats or any other party with this post. Right now there is alot of finger pointing going on and little work. So, here is my finger pointing. I know that our current situation isn't too tip top. And the people who are making the decisions right now, in my opinion, shouldn't be.
Take what you want from this...
Things you have to believe to be a Republican today:

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him to fight Iran, a bad guy when
Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him,
and a bad guy when Georgie Jr. needed a reason to invade Iraq under a veil

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then
demand their cooperation and money when it suits us and our incompetence

A better way to fight terrorism is to illegally take and torture prisoners
worldwide, occupy a soverign nation while killing thousands of civilians
and demand that they adopt a form of democracy that meets with U.S. approval

but a president and his whole administration lying to enlist support for an
invasion of a country which poses no threat to the U.S. and has not
attacked us, to launch a war in which hundreds of thousands of people are violently
murdered and results in a choatic and destabilizing civil war which the
U.S. is caught in the middle of at $1.7 billion a day... that is solid defense policy and is making us all safer.
