    Does the United States have a right to defend itself?

    Most definately. In particular, when the enemy is coming from within. Did you know orrin hatch said his brother did not die fighting nazis to see nazi ideas take hold in usa? My own husband is serving a life sentence for a white persons crime. Time to wake up america. Your delusions of grandeur have hit a snag. (Clue: the creator of the universe is not a white man with a small unit)
    God is everything. You are but a minute piece of the puzzle. Please humble thyself! Or the creator will do it for you.

    Of course...but lately, a lot of the "wars" our military has been dispatched to "fight" are misguided and cruel.

    There's just too much to say here...but just like "WMDs"...going into another country and destroying it to "free them" is completely unethical and even against our constitution.

    We have not retaliated against threat, we are the threat. I'm more of the ideology of don't hit/attack first. Unless someone/country directly attacks you, you should not declare war on anyone.....

    but wait...we're at war right now. The drones...the military...we've never been done with war. We just have neglected the constitution and fought discretely - mostly through drones.

    I will never support this kind of war. We're not trying to protect this country, we're trying to bully other countries. It's no wonder other countries hate our guts. Imagine if China droned American cities on a daily basis. How would you feel about them? That's what we're doing. Look at how many drones were dispatched under one year. Insane amounts (I think it was over 2k...r 20k...i cant remember).

    Bottom line: right now, any war we start should be approved by congress, and should be in response to direct threats to our nation. And no...NK doesn't count. They don't have the manpower or weapons to do anything to us. They can harm SK and Japan..but that's their problem. They can declare war on NK and ask for our aid (since we are their allies), and help them take over NK and unite both sides...but NEVER take over NK.

    I am okay with the idea of aiding SK, if they declare war....but us declaring war ourselves and going in and taking over? Hell no. That's not "protecting" America..that's just being greedy and taking over another country.

    The truth hurts.

    I love America and all that it's founded on, but dont think for a second I won't call out on BS when I see it.

      Heres another truth: trump ordered more drone strikes in one week than obama did in one year! Is there some reason you failed to include the current prez in that?

      I actually didn't know that...i've been concentrating on many other political subjects lately - they've been keeping me busy..heh.

      if he did...I'm 100% against it. I've never been for drone strikes with any other prez before, it doesnt change now.

      Im not surprised you dont know one ever mentions it. Trump network news is in full effect. Nor do they mention he has already spent 10 million on vacations in 200 days. But we all know news is conservative, so thats what we get. Perceptions.

      News is conservative? News is liberal. That's a fact that even liberals don't dispute. The only difference is that they've been nitpicking Trumps silly acts instead of real issues.
      Obamas drone strike came to me by accident, and now, same with Trump

      Check out op. He put obamas picture up there. And also check out sinclaire media: ie trump news. They own 72% of local stations, and head of fcc is working to give them more. Ever listen to talk radio? Since 1991, it changed from variety to alt right

      Truth be told, i completely avoid watching any mainstream media news. They're biased, clickbaity, and omit a lot of details I like knowing. I prefer listening to political analysts who comment on subjects. From all sides. The best way to learn truth.
