OK, folks - I have now officially heard everything.
The Freeperati, who never met them some Ay-rabs they didn't want to make the rubble bounce, think Mittens is a reckless warmonger.

The really funny part?

The reasons they give.

Get ready for your trip down the rabbit-hole.

Mitt Romney Says He Could Wage War on Iran Without Congress' Approval
The Atantic ^ | June 20th, 2012 | Conor Friedersdorf

Posted on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 8:59:50 PM by Mozilla

On Face the Nation on Sunday, Mitt Romney said that if elected president he wouldn't have to get congressional permission for a military strike on Iran.

To quote him directly (emphasis added):

I can assure you if I'm president, the Iranians will have no question but that I will be willing to take military action if necessary to prevent them from becoming a nuclear threat to the world. I don't believe at this stage, therefore, if I'm president that we need to have a war powers approval or special authorization for military force. The president has that capacity now. I understand that some in the Senate for instance have written letters to the president indicating you should know that a containment strategy is unacceptable. We cannot survive a course of action which would include a nuclear Iran we must be willing to take any and all actions.

All those actions must be on the table.

So it's OK to intend to start another war in the Middle East, as long as you lie about it to get elected?

    Well, we all know that arguing with idiots doesn't work on the basis of our experiences with our neighbors and co-workers.

    Having said that; if we start up another war in the Middle East, we may very well run out of soldiers and armament.

    I say let those people over there argue over whose god is the real god and which zombies and prophets are right about the universe until they wipe each other out.

    I personally would not care if the entire Middle East was reduced to a sea of glass with no inhabitants.

    Oh great. Now we have our own candidate to be king.

    Now some folks can run him on the ‘My king is better than your king” platform.

    Armour and chain mail will be handed out at the jousting tournaments this fall.

    Maybe we could cooperate with the other side to make sure their two armors are oppositely charged. The first time they make a pass, they’ll merge into one big glob of king juice and we can start over.

    It was wrong when Obama did it in Libya, and it’ll be just as wrong if Romney does it in Iran.

Isn't anybody going to stand up for the time-honoured GOP policy of borrowing billions to bomb the browns?

    Apples and oranges, my friend.

    Libya was an internal matter and we should have stayed out. Iran wants to wipe another country off the map.

That was Iraq - and we did that for them.  And not even a thank-you card in return!


That, cannot be allowed.

    Sorry, but I don't buy that we have to go involving ourselves in every hot spot the world over.

    Somebody please tell Romney that we don't even have enough money left to operate that pirate ship in the Pirate's of the Caribbean ride at Disney, much less launch yet another war in the Middle East.

    Where is dicator wannabe going to get the money for his war, I wonder. Dumb as a box of rocks.

    In all the "UN-declared" wars we have lost approximately 120,000 lives with close to 330,000 wounded.

    For what? A draw, a loss, and the verdict is still out on the latest two - OIF and OEF.

    And here we have yet another Neo-con boasting how he will bypass Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution once again.

    Words simply escape me - that can be posted under Jim's guide lines anyway!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
