You are absolutely right Phoenix. But we are discussing political events and try to see relations and perhaps make predictions. We aren't here to judge personality!

I am sorry I ask, but do you mean:
a) You're here to discuss political events, or
b) here to discuss personality.

Don't see this as a personal attack, trying to twist something. But I just didn't get you the first time around.

Both!

Personality has direct relation with decision making/taking action.

If you (I am not talking about u, it is an example) are a mentally weak and coward person, you can't decide as to what should be done in, lets say, a military conflict.

Most Dem presidents were of this group. Coward and unable to make crucial decisions in time of important crises. i.e Lyndon Johnson during the Vietnam conflict, Jimmy Carter during the Iranian revolution and hostage crisis and Bill Clinton through out his entire presidency

Indecisiveness are not only caused by these two characteristics. And doing nothing is also a course of action. But the is entire other discussion! Which of the republican presidents had these traits? And you say "most Dem presidents"... which one didn't?

I'd say all of the contemporary Republican presidents were great when dealing with the world issues! They were almost decisive, courageous and bold in their approach to int'l crises.

Among contemporary Dems, Truman was really good. JFK acted very well during the Cuban missile crisis too. But the rest sucked big time.

Hahahaha, I'll say! Of course the republican presidents were great when it came dealing with international crises..... They caused most of them, so they always has a head start

would you name them?

Almost all military conflicts of the second half of the 20th century was initiated by DemocRat presidents.

FDR = WW II
Truman= Korean War
JFK, LBJ = Vietnam
Carter inability to control Iranian revolution and losing an ally in Iran, led Soviets to occupation of Afghanistan and drew US special ops to Afghanistan and support of mujaheddin as we know today.
Bill Clinton= Somalia, Haiti, Sudan, 1998 Desert Shield ops in Iraq..... Kosovo-Balkan conflict... etc

(( The thing is that I support almost all of these efforts though, but saying that Republicans are warmonger is absolutely pathetic and absurd))


Eisenhower ended the korean conflict, Nixon ended the Vietnam conflict, H.W Bush ended the unjust occupation of Kuwait....

Should I say more?

I thought we were talking international crises and not military conflicts. And there is a very big difference in both!
