i'am really getting tired of you democrats blaming every war on republican "warmongers" and "neocons".
last i checked, most democrats voted for all of the recent wars. including joe blowhard biden.
obama bombed the crap out of libya, while arming the rebels, and we have seen where that got us.
if you don't like war, then stop voting the learjet limousine flat earth no growth marxist liberals, into office.
as well as the establishment republicans.
until then blame yourselves.
seems conservatives have booted several est. republicans out of office over the last 4 years 1 by 1.
if you want to blame presidents go ahead.
ww1- wilson D.
ww2- roosevelt D.
korea- truman D. also responsible for hiroshima and nagasaki.
vietnam- johnson D.
US President Bill Clinton's administration knew Rwanda was being engulfed by genocide in April 1994 but buried the information to justify its
inaction, according to classified documents made available for the first time. Senior officials privately used the word genocide within 16 days of the
start of the killings, but chose not to do so publicly because the president had already decided not to intervene. Intelligence reports obtained using
the US Freedom of Information Act show the cabinet and almost certainly the president had been told of a planned "final solution to eliminate all
Tutsis" before the slaughter reached its peak. Fear of a repeat of the events in Somalia shaped US policy in subsequent years, with many
commentators identifying the graphic consequences of the Battle of Mogadishu as the key reason behind the US's failure to intervene in later
conflicts such as the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. After the battle, the bodies of several US casualties of the conflict were dragged through the streets
of Mogadishu by crowds of local civilians and members of Aidid's Somali National Alliance. According to the US's former deputy special envoy to
Somalia, Walter Clarke: "The ghosts of Somalia continue to haunt US policy. Our lack of response in Rwanda was a fear of getting involved in
something like a Somalia all over again." President Clinton has referred to the failure of the U.S. government to intervene in the genocide as
one of his main foreign policy failings, saying “I don’t think we could have ended the violence, but I think we could have cut it down. And I
The U.S. lobbied the U.N. for a total withdrawal of U.N. (UNAMIR) forces in Rwanda in April 1994; Secretary of State Warren Christopher did not
authorize officials to use the term "genocide" until May 21, and even then, U.S. officials waited another three weeks before using the term in
public; Bureaucratic infighting slowed the U.S. response to the genocide in general; The U.S. refused to jam extremist radio broadcasts inciting the
killing, citing costs and concern with international law; U.S. officials knew exactly who was leading the genocide, and actually spoke with those
leaders to urge an end to the violence but did not follow up with concrete action.[
such a great president bill was.
