    The fall of the Roman empire was directly related to their consistant decline in morals and their degredation into liberal thinking.

    After the Dems destroy the best Health Care system in the world, they will be trying to Nationalize our energy industry.

    Their motto will be,"If 10. per liter is good for the Europeans, then $8. a gallon is good for us".

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    P S In the east, Rome stopped at Constantenople and the near east, Judea and Egypt. They fell in the east not because they were over-strectched but because they became a soft people. Thier attempt to spread Christianity was what led to the hostility with the Muslim Turks. It was religion that did them in, not an over-streched army.

    In the west, Rome still ruled Britanica and Gaul when Rome fell. That had nothing to do with the mideast.
    I'll defer to your knowledge of Roman history. I only read the abridged Gibbon's "Decline and Fall..", and that was MANY years ago.

    A lot of similarities between them and us. They had thier Cincinatus, we had our George Washington. They had thier Ceasar Augustus, we had our Franklin Roosevelt. They had Julius Ceasar, we Eisenhower. They had their Nero, we have our Obama.

    What was W thinking when he invaded/occupied Iraq?

    As the song goes...."don't know much about history..."
    Or more appropriately, as the song continues, "don't know much about geography." Afghanistan isn't in the Middle East. That aside, is your point that we should have learned from the Soviets and not gone into Afghanistan after 911?

    Not much, obviously.

    Well except, don't believe everything on the internet.

    That was referring to Iraq. And yes, I, along with everyone else agreed with thumping those who were responsible for 9-11. What I don't understand, is why we quit on Afghanistan, let bin Laden escape, and invaded another country that had NOTHING to do with 9-11. Then fired the general who said we needed more troops on the ground (shinseki), only to try and take credit 5 years later with the "surge". Have to admit, he got about half of Americans to buy his story. Obama or any other politician trying to promote their agenda against the will of congress and the people could take a lesson from him!
