I never thought the day would come where I'd have someone representing me that I have less respect for than Patrick Kennedy. Amazingly, Lincoln Chafee (supposedly Republican, RI), has actually made me proud to have Patches Kennedy as a Congressman with this jackass as a Senator. Besides being a Republican in name only, Chafee has now crossed a line where I don't think even the Democrats would want to have him. In a local television inverview, Chafee equates U.S. military action with watching the South Vietnamese execute little girls during Vietnam. I'm pleading with the GOP leadership to boot this guy out of our party. At this point, even if the Senate was 50-50, I'd be glad to give up control just so Chafee can't dishonor the Republican Party any longer. His father might have gone off the Republican reservation at times, but no one could question his support for his country (Secretary of Navy during Vietnam). His son is a disgrace to the family name.
If it wasn't for war, you wouldn't know what peace was.
No, the point is that the American government is responsible for Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, and Augusto Pinochet (and many others). Anything that Saddam did is our fault, because we helped him when it served our interests.
