I’m very depressed today. As we inch closer to another intervention, our media beats the drum for war in search of ratings.

This is not a real debate in America—any more than when we dropped the nukes on Japan. This is fall football season. Let the games begin!

I'm reminded of Orson Welles’ Hearst beaming about his success in starting the Spanish–American War of 1898

That guy carries as much creditability as somebody in the Obama administration. None.

Stop being a liberal/progressive and putting words in my mouth or claiming that I said something I never said.
You know he won't as long as we exist.

No body cares about what Oliver Stone says or thinks... does he have the the ability to think?

Oliver Stones opinion is worth about as much as Paris Hilton's opinion..

Amazing how anyone even cares about celebrity politics or holds them to a higher value...

Because Oliver Stone has been the spoke hole for the left for the past couple of decades.
No, he hasn't, but please try and back your **** up with proof if you like how the MAJORITY of the left has agreed with him.

Well if you're referring to the movie, sorry, that doesn't cut it. If you're looking for movies to support or not support your cause you are an idiot.

Meaning nothing, thank you.
That makes no sense whatsoever, else you wouldn't be here regularly expressing your opinion, or are you just bored?

No, our opinions don't matter for anything in the Syrian crisis. That's just fact.

No! That's not fact. Every American has skin in this and every Americans opinion has value and relevancy. Did you see/hear the Syrian/American woman's passionate appeal to John McCain at his town hall meeting? Her opinion counts, matters and is relevant. If you think your opinion isn't relevant in the Syria debate, why the hell are you wasting your time expressing it?

No, not every America has skin in this. Do you have anyone you personally know in Syria? No, I doubt it. And if you did, THEN I would say you have some skin in the game. Sorry, but no, your or my opinion do NOT matter and that is fact. I'm sorry you hate the truth, but the world does not revolve around you or I.

How can you claim as fact that I or anyone else has skin in the game or not. If Obama goes to war in Syria, America goes to war in Syria. "Skin in the game" is a figure of speech. Every Americans opinion is important on this. I'm glad your not a US representative, clearly you would disregard your constituents opinion. Ill ask you again, why are you posting opinions that by your own admission do not matter?

Oliver Stone, an influential member of the limousine Hollywood left. The Hollywood Left are spoke holes for the liberal Democrat Party.

Oliver Stone fried his brains on drugs like a liberal.

Oliver Stone is a revisionst like a liberal who has a strange view of American history.

Oliver Stone is a truther and the majority of truthers are liberals.

When Oliver Stone speaks, liberals listen.

When Oliver Stone speaks stupid people listen.

Stupid people tend to vote the Democrat Party ticket.

Yep all stupid people vote democratic ticket and all smart people vote republican ticket. Why isn't Oliver Stone backing Obama on this if he's stupid?

Many Marxist, socialist, and those hiding behind the labels of liberalism and progressivism who were directly involved with putting Obama in the White House have jumped ship. Even Tom Hayden !

I suppose next time they'll want to see the college transcripts and a birth certificate before they back one of there own.

I guess I can quote one Marxist in the Peoples Republic of Santa Monica. "Let look at it as a test run. We now know we can put one of our own in the White House."
