    Got to love how all the examples are always taken from the wars with best justification of fighting them.

    Funny how wiping out the Indians and stealing their lands get mentioned much less frequently.

    Sending troops halfway around the world on the pretense that somebody isn't being nice to somebody somewhere is hardly my idea of "best justification", which is why I said our original foreign policy worked just great for us until 1917. Say what else you want about the Indian Wars, you can't say we didn't have a personal stake in the outcome.

    That's nice, but I'm going to stick with Realpolitik.

    I liked what Trump said regarding foreign policy during his campaign and was very optimistic, but when he chose to bomb the Syria, I realized he would just do the same stuff that Obama and Bush did before him.

    That was isolationism not pacifism. Some confuse the two.

    What price are you asking other families to pay? Your appeal to “patriotism” is no less an emotional than the question I asked that you avoided answering.

    Their having nukes may actually make the region safer as they will be on an equal footing with the other nuclear powers in the region.

    I don't appeal to patriotism, I appeal to biblical principles as all Christians should.

    Why stop there? You have enough nukes for everybody to go around. Just wipe out humanity and call it a day.

    1. Psalm 82:3 (KJV) Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
    2. Genesis 4:9 (KJV) And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? (yes we are)
    3. Genesis 12:3 (KJV) And I will bless them that bless thee (Jewish nation through Abraham), and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
    (Iran is a sworn enemy of Israel and has threatened their annihilation repeatedly).
