But in the meantime, do you disagree that our Chickenhawk President is sending troops to Turkey?

A "chickenhawk" is someone who stongly advocates war, but refused to fight a war when they were called for service. You know, like Dick "Five Deferments" Cheney or Mitt "We'll Always Have Paris" Romney. So... no. I don't agree. Obama's not a chickenhawk. He's my age, so the only war he could have dodged was the heroic Invasion of Grenada, and that happened too fast to sign up for. Heck, I was in the military then (sort of) and didn't even get to go.

And we already have troops in Turkey. We've had troops in Turkey since World War Two. What we're doing now is sending a couple of Patriot Missile anti-missile batteries to help defend a NATO ally from a possible missile attack from Syria. You oppose that? Why?

The deployment will cost money.

Of course. All deployments do.

Cut Caliphornia school budgets and raise tuitions.

You're not making any sense. The deployment of two Patrior batteries comes out of the federal defense budget. California schools are funded from state and local taxes.
