The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Boycott the Presidential Debates!“…
Rayn: Vote Robomney! Four More Wars!
Jonas A.: Yup…I did last night…was watching episodes of The Equalizer on youtube…lol
Brian J.: Except Obama wants less war, and he’s trying to actually fix the economy. Romney wants more war, and he’s a liar. At least Obama tries to tell the truth.
Rayn: “Obama wants less war,” Brian? What evidence do you have to support such a claim? His lip-service? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t really been keeping track of the things Obama “wants.” I’ve been far too busy paying attention to the things he DOES! And, so long as he continues this nation down Bush’s war path, he engages in MORE WAR, by definition. However, that’s not even the full reality of the situation! Obama actually escalated America’s war in Afghanistan, while also aggressively continuing war operations in Pakistan, and authorizing new military strikes against Yemen, Libya and Somalia. Therefore, he has unequivocally engaged the U.S. in EVEN MORE WAR:
