Today's Buggy Topic, Needless to Say . . .
. . . points directly to an Obama philosophical outlook on world politics that both the Republican-Progressive Teddy Roosevelt and all Democratic Presidents afterwards --- from Wilson through Clinton and Obama himself --- shared to the hilt: there is evil afoot in the world at times, as Obama made clear in last fall's Nobel Peace Prize speech, and at times, then, it is necessary for the USA and its allies to use military power against it.
Needless to add as well, the three lengthy prof bug posts on the topic --- left as usual at Economist's View --- infuriated the claque of easily indignant and angry chronic left-wing ideologues, convinced that the USA was, had been, and is a militarized, capitalist imperialist or neo-imperialist or Neo-, Post-Modern Imperialist bully world-wide, and wasting money on defense spending that should be reallocated to welfare- and other social-spending.
Clique Here for the Buggy Stuff,
for some possible illumination and, for sure, some good guffaws or outright rollicking laughter as you read through the furioso, feeble-minded scribblings left as rejoinders to the buggy prof's solidly evidence-based posts.
