    George Bush was vegemite, Barack Obama is Marmite. You mention Bush's military adventures, supposing I agree, when is George Bush finally going to end the Afghanistan Adventure, end the undeclared drone war on Pakistan, and how did he have the audacity to get us involved in yet ANOTHER conflict in Lybia (of all places) ? Obama is the same can of beans with an improved label. Perhaps we should have left Saddam alone, instead of my government’s "failed and costly attempts to pursue regime change". By the way, where is Saddam ? I havent seen him in a while. So let me makes sure I have this straight: Invading Iraq to depose Saddam and enact regime change: Wrong Invading Afghanistan to unseat the Taliban and enact regime change: Wrong Invading Lybia to unseat Ghaddafi and enact regime change: Right Supporting the Arab spring in Iran: Wrong Supporting the Arab spring in Egypt: Right See how delicious those beans are when they come in a new can ? Perhaps we should leave the mullahs in power too. From our veiwpoint it is much preferable to do the "right" thing and not get involved, instead of sending our sons on "adventures" to die for people who don't appreciate our efforts. Don't take this the wrong way, but America needs a good reason to stand back and let Israel and Iran fight it out between themselves, people like myself have a hard time letting go. 3 generations of my family bore the scars of fighting wars in other countries, and somehow I got this idea that when a national revolution is born threatening it's neighbors and building up it's military technology from the very beginning, that it must be dealt with before it's power matures. Fortunately, black and white blend together quite well. Once Iran has nukes, Israel will find it's seat at the table of middle eastern politics, and America will make lots of money selling weapons to you and your neighbors.
