Nice to have them snarling at each other instead of us.

Why must our sons, our daughters die to satisfy the egos of fools?

I'm not usually a Scarborough fan, but he is right this time.

Ya gotta love Joe. A Conservative with a brain.

As for King, “Listen, we’ve been in Germany now for 60 years,” King insisted. “If we pull out of Afghanistan, how will it be different from Sept. 10th, 2001?" Does this guy really think Germany is the same as Afghanistan and that our presence there is the only thing keeping the country from turning into a terrorist state? And he wants to be President?

Speaking of Germany, reducing the budget for obsolete Cold War foreign military bases by 20% would reduce spending by $200 billion over 10 years.

Peter King is an idiot. If he wants to protect American interests, then America should stay out of other countries' business. What was the prime excuse for attacking Iraq --- oil. WMD were used as a pretext.

There is always an underlying reason for American involvement in foreign theatres. If the US did not so willingly play the 'Ugly American' perhaps there would be no future attacks on its soil.

Yeah, I'm glad to see them snipe at each other too. I don't watch Scarborough--a misogynist, and just way too mean and nasty for my taste. King needs to go the way of the dinosaur.
