War mongers?

Democrat Wars: WW1, WW2, Vietnam, Korea.

Republicans were elected to end the Korean war.

Gulf War 1: Republican/Democrat
Gulf War 2: Republican/Democrat

1.6 million dead in democrat wars.

Just a reality check for those who think republicans are war mongers. Granted these wars would have likely occurred anyway.

  • Facts are such pesky little things lol.

    On the other hand, I'd much rather be called a war-mongerer than a buttkissing coward.
