wax_on: Bush looks pretty good in this list. Only two military strikes.
drunk_bouncnbaloruber: FTFA: Iraq (1993): Launched cruise missiles into Baghdad, hitting Iraqi intelligence headquarters, in retaliation for assassination plot against President George H.W. Bush.Which is funny, because it wasn't Saddam that tried to kill Bush the elder, it was Al Qaeda.
DoctorCal: "I'd like to ask one question of everybody," Reagan responded. "Everybody who can remember what they were doing on Aug. 8, 1985, raise your hand."
muddythinker: Missing from the list: the economic embargo against Iran. Not a war (though enforced militarily by the US), but it has been estimated by medical groups that up to half a million kids died because, among other things, US would not let chlorine in for water purification. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctions _against_Iraq
knbber2: Well look at that, ole Slick Willy ordered more strikes than any other Prez.
QifutuWahuta: Reading that was interesting. I didn't know much about the invasion of Panama, but declaring war on the United States? Who ever agreed to that great idea?
Slam1263: Boy 0neder gave such a reasoned appeal for killing civilians.Check out this blurb; "I'm also mindful that I'm president of the world's oldest constitutional democracy."Really? I thought he was Prezzy of the US, an constitutional republic. 1Did this man ever take a civics lesson?Oh. Wait. That explains a couple of things.Sources:1.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United _States

Apik0r0s: That is not what Fox News and Judith Miller led me to believe.
Kumana Wanalaia: America is a democratic republic.
Muta: Obama's only had two as well. He is just like Bush.
Slam1263: Kumana Wanalaia: America is a democratic republic.Geez, you give people a source to read, and they still can't figure it out.Here's another source that maybe helpful, you have something on your chin.http://www.charmin.com/toilet-paper-p roducts.aspx?utm_source=msn&utm _m edium=cpc&utm_campaign=Charmin_Search_ Desktop_Brand+Awareness.RF&utm_t erm=charmin%20toilet%20paper&utm_conte nt=8ZIhGPpU_charmin%20toilet%20p aper_e_2095918088
WippitGuud: WippitGuud:Which is what Obama originally said.Ok, he said constitutional democracy. Not republic. I admit my error.He probably didn't write the speach.
Cup_O_Jo: It is when I realized how much of a war monger Bill Clinton was that I realized that I hate all politicians. I had been through Bush Sr. ----really Clinton and his little "secret strikes" make both the Bushes look good as far as war mongering goes.
ferretman: Subby has no clue what the ;Cold War' was about.
