Thread Name: BS: Bush/Gore Round 2
Subject: RE: BS: Bush/Gore Round 2
What do you mean, when am I going to show up to discuss the readiness of the military? If you are willing to believe one republican (Bush) why not another? (Cohen) Bush says he would only use the military in cases of our national interest, ok, then why does he want to "Build it up" more than it is now? The joint chiefs and the secretary of defense say it is fully armed and ready. This same old crap was used when Kennedy was running, claiming the military was in poor shape, then, years later, we find out the truth. It was bullshit! Naturally, the bullet makers love a bloated military. Do you remember a few years ago when the Prime Minister of New Zealand refused to allow a US nuclear powered aircraft carrier to enter their waters? A woman who was interviewed said something very true.."Enemies are expensive," And God knows we have made plenty of them
