Obama Pardons Turnabout Manning - Is Turncoat Bergdahl Next?
(01-19-2017, 10:30 AM)Anthony Wrote: This is all part of a larger narrative - and that is the left's refusal to echo Arthur Vandenberg and his "Politics stops at the water's edge" mantra from World War II.

When FDR handed Joe Stalin half of Europe on a silver platter at Yalta, don't you think that the Republicans wanted to drag FDR out of that wheelchair and ground-and-pound him?  Yet they did the right thing and kept their mouths shut - and were rewarded in 1946 with what is still the most definitive midterm landslide victory in American history.

See also Clement Attlee, whose Labour Party came to power in the aftermath of that same war - and brought single payer health care to Britain.

Many Republicans and Democrats opposed US entry into World War Two. It was almost as big a protest movement as the Vietnam protests. Millions protested Bush's unjustified invasion of Iraq. My country right or wrong doesn't cut it. If this is a free country, Anthony, the people have a right to speak out and know the truth about their country's wars, and to oppose them.

FDR had no choice but to do what he did at Yalta. The Russians were our allies then, and had conquered all those territories already. The people would have protested if FDR had started another war with Russia then. Huge wars like that can't go on for decades.
