    Hey,

    Maybe we should use a little more tax money on arms and munitions for the rebels? Oh wait........ WE'RE TRYING TO DO THAT.

    Maybe a military avisor or two on the ground to show them how to use them. Nothing more....... though...... well besides maybe a couple hundred other military support people" and their equipment......

    READ MY LIPS THOUGH....... ABSOLUTLY NO GROUND TROOPS :rolleyes:

    When was the last time our military wasn't involved in some form of conflict?

    (I'd also be curious to see how often presidents' foreign adventures actually fit with their stated foreign policy objectives... We know the last 2 are 0-2.)
