    I know many will disagree, and say something along the lines of "stay the course, don't let our war dead die in vain".
    Every Member of our Military who gives his life hurts me deeply. Military Generals should be free to conduct the wars as necessary to accomplish the mission. Civilians in Washington should not be allowed to tie the hands of our Generals and our troops. When the RULES OF ENGAGEMENT seriously endanger the lives of our Military, it's time to hand it over to the locals and bring our people home.
    Take a good hard look at this country, it's economics, it's religious strife, it's infrastructure, it's police, it's military, it's natural resources.... then tell me it's really worth even one more American life.
    It's a lost cause. today, tomorrow, next year, and a decade from now, regardless of when we leave.

    I wish I knew what the right course of action was but I don't. I have no idea what's right or wrong about our wars because everyone who gives me information, lies to me to advance their agenda.

    I've said that from the time this went from "fighting terrorism" to nation building. It's not our business, and certainly not the business of the military to build someone else's nation.
    A colleague of my wife was ambushed going into a small village to provide medical relief. MEDICAL RELIEF!

    If the point is to go there and kick *ss in order to defend our nation - then do it. Kick *ss and leave. Install a puppet if we must (is it any worse than this so called democracy?)
    Because the whole nation of Iraq - if we were truly able to save it, which I doubt - is not worth ONE AMERICAN LIFE.

    When in doubt, look to your heart, look to the Constitution, look to the writings of our founding fathers. I trust all of the above much much more than one word from anyone today in the media or Washington D.C.
    Brokor, as to you agreeing with me, ... I am in shock. I don't know whether to laugh or cry .... lol ... but anyway, thanks!

    I thought Obama brought all the troops home already? And closed Gitmo? That is what he said he was going to do. I doubt he would do the opposite and increase the troop levels......

    Move along now, nothing to see here.
