  • I think declaring war AT THIS POINT would not be a good idea. I do believe in defending ourselves, but it would be premature to declare war right now.

    If they attacked us however, it's on...

  • NO. How would we afford it? What about Iraq and Afghanistan? Many of THOSE troops don't even have proper equipment.

    Just to let you know, FDR and the New Deal didn't end the Great Depression for us... WW II did.

  • Absolutely not. Remember what happened last time we declared war on THEM before they declared war on US?

  • No. Iran is dealing with election irregularities, that is not our job to get involved with. N.Korea has been threatening us for decades and hasn't acted on it. If they attack us, I am sure we will, and at that time we should. Not now.

  • No we have no business declaring a war on Iran. They are having their own revolution, yes. Good for them for standing up to a government they do not believe in. Now North Korea on the other hand, I don't say declare war on them, but if they attack us or declare war on us, then by all means yes we should defend ourselves and remove their powers that be. But no we don't need to declare war on anyone.

  • "Just to let you know, FDR and the New Deal didn't end the Great Depression for us... WW II did. "

    There's actually some debate about that among historians and economists.
