When the Americans were not there, & it is only a 100 years back, the world had no such issues.
Like Iraq yesterday, Iran is the target today & Pakistan will be the target tomorrow. Have the average American thought what his life would be if this happens? God help you AVERAGE American.

Romney is scary (like gunslinger Bush) with his ideas on Pakistan. We do not have an England in that part of the world so we have to buy our allies and Pakistan is to strategic to be reckless with.

Gingrich played politics (big time) with the Christian reference. As president his responsibility is to the USA not Christendom.

EVERYONE does. The problem is HOW. Bush thought every problem can be solved by throwing bombs and money at it. And I dare to wager that every Republican candidates, congressman, and constituent think that too. The problem is, the Middle East is a VERY VERY COMPLICATED PLACE. Bush threw bomb at it, and now we have a ruin of a nation. Bush threw money at it, and now we have one of the most corrupt government on earth. Instead of being regarded as liberators, we are being seen as invaders and the root of corruption of its society. Instead of promoting human freedom, we cultured resentment. If we leave the two countries at this state, it will only be matter of time until the Taliban or any other repressive regime replace us to be the de factor ruler, labeling itself as liberator, further promoting hatred toward American, and in the end, destroy everything we sacrificed to achieve.
The problem of Afghanistan and Iraq cannot and will not be solved neither by money nor bullets alone. Freedom cannot be achieved SOLELY by money and bullets. This is a costly lesson, and American will be damned if it try to forget that.

Under 4 years of Obama Administration, the US killed more Al Qaeda operative than the whole 8 years of Bush combined. Surely if intels are not effective, how can we pinpoint their location with such accuracy to allow drone strike in the most remote area possible? If, as Bachmann said, Obama is letting ACLU running CIA, if it is so effective, why not? In the past the bloated CIA has caused numerous lasting damage to US reputation and security – Bay of Pig, Phoenix program, the Iraq WMD gaffe, and countless other CIA sponsored assassinations, foreign sovereignty violations, and provided support for totalitarian regimes. In the past we have already glamorized CIA to the point of beyond restraint. Surely you have to learn at least a little from history, no?
