We're not at war. We're just protecting strategic economic interests. /pat

I'm not the guy who says we aren't at war. That's the guys on your side (Ron Paul supporters). Of course, they also say that we're in an endless war when it suits them too, so no one really takes them seriously.

Yes, Gates also endorsed Ron Paul and picked Nebraska to win the national championship.

Being half right isn't too bad, and Nebraska isn't winning the Nati.

Selling The Wars - Image Is Everything When You're Marketing A $3 Trillion War Machine

<object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Yz618EZaC80?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Yz618EZaC80?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></object>

The Pentagon budgets half a billion dollars to market its wars in the U.S. Call it public relations or call it propaganda, it's meant to win the hearts and minds of Americans. But is it coming at the price of the truth? Examining the cost of war in Afghanistan and Iraq.

For those wondering why I cover the wars, it's simple. All moral issues aside, of which there are plenty, if we have to borrow - let's face it, it's stealing - if we have to steal from future generations to pay for our current love of killing, then it will be covered here at the Bail. Book it.

* Thus far, the war in Iraq has cost over $740,000,000,000 -- but the cumulative cost could be between two and three trillion dollars. The war has caused the death of over 4,400 American troops, and left more than 31,000 wounded.

What the hell are you re-defining now? Ron Paul is all about doom and gloom. We're never NOT in a war according to him.

Saying that we haven't declared war is different than saying that we're not at war.

NCs don't discern the fine points.

Based on my interaction with Ron Paul supporters here, I'm under the understanding that it can't be a real war unless Congress passes a declaration of war... using language from the 17th century... on parchment.

Is it?

Are we at war, or are we not at war?

Apparently we're not at war. We are in a police action. If you think the American people are going to be willing to sustain a police action for "however long it takes," you're fooling yourself and inviting American defeat.

That he takes his marching orders from the constitution.

We're not at war. We're policing a civil war. That's unconstitutional. It's really as simple as that.
