When will Our Troops return?

Posted on 11/03/2006 4:44:23 PM PST by Rosary

There is a song within the hearts of Americans,who care-"When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again" and "My Country Tis of thee"..when will the soldiers come home?? Who is there that does not want the war to end ? And Will the deaths of one ,two or three hundred,ect. miltary make a difference in fighting off home ground on soil owned by those who are not afraid of death-or punishment-or killing off a million Americans. So we pray for all our troops that the war will end -that they may return HOME safe and their families,who agonize daily on news of their loved ones-will be comforted knowing --we pray for you all !Let the troops come HOME !

Thanks, Rosary. Good thoughts. Our troops will come home with the mission is over, and not one day sooner.

When the job is done. I figure 10 years minimum (which means at least 5 years longer).

But will it ever be over?--and why not just stay on our own ground and fight from itsa boarders? Less deaths of all those Young troops and less crushed the families.

Our troops don't want to come home until the job is done.

They're professionals.

Leave the whining for the Dems, those are men and women who volunteered

They will be home as soon as they kill the last murdering Islamofascist. It should speed up after the U.S. elections when the 'RATS get their butts handed to them and the terrorists figure out they are fighting a losing battle.

This is an interesting posting, wishing for our troops to fight the terrorists in the streets of New York, Kansas City, Denver.

And what ever happened to the one "Senator' who back in Nov. of last year was on CNN blasting the reasons to bring the war-eaten Troops Home--what was his name and why did the CNN stop public ears from hearing his views especially since he, himself was a ARMY man at one time?? anyone recall this..Nov. 1-10 somewhere>

"who are not afraid of death-or punishment-or killing off a million Americans."

So what you are saying is that since the terrorists want to kill a million Americans we should stop fighting them.

Your logic is flawless.

Because, Rosary, over there is where the problem lies right now. If we pull up stakes and come back home, the problem will follow us here. And it will be emboldened to attack other allies, such as Europe and Asia and the South Pacific. Besides, we have raised the hopes of a nation that it will have a fighting chance to build a new democratic reality and we don't run from promises.

Think for a moment how long it took to help Germany and Japan set up their new national governments. There were many years of occupation before they were ready to assume the responsibility for themselves. We have to be sure the powers-that-were under Hussein don't becomes the powers-that-be now because it will just revert to what it was before.

We don't colonize and we don't abandon our friends and allies at their most vulnerable points.

Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming
The drum's rum-tumming everywhere
So prepare, say a prayer,
Send the word, send the word to beware
We'll be over, we're coming over
And we won't come back till it's over, over there

Johnny, get your gun, get your gun, get your gun
Take it on the run, on the run, on the run
Hear them calling you and me
Every Son of Liberty
Hurry right away, no delay, go today
Make your Daddy glad to have had such a lad
Tell your sweetheart not to pine,
To be proud her boy's in line

Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming
The drum's rum-tumming everywhere
So prepare, say a prayer,
Send the word, send the word to beware
We'll be over, we're coming over
And we won't come back till it's over, over there

Johnny, get your gun, get your gun, get your gun
Johnny, show the "Hun" 1 you're a son-of-a-gun
Hoist the flag and let her fly
Yankee Doodle, do or die
Pack your little kit, show your grit, do your bit
Yankee to the ranks from the towns and the tanks
Make your Mother proud of you
And the old red-white-and-blue

Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming
The drum's rum-tumming everywhere
So prepare, say a prayer,
Send the word, send the word to beware
We'll be over, we're coming over
And we won't come back till it's over, over there

It would be worse here if we allow it to build. Just as it is easier to cure a cancer when it is in a less delicate place and less invasive, so to is it easier to fight terror/fanatical Islam when it is contained and not metastasized. That is what we are doing.

I too pray for the war to end—in victory for us and for the hard-working patriotic Iraqis who know what they can be. IOW, the good-guys.

I am in this until the job is done.

Virtually every former terrorist or true moderate muslim I've seen has said.."If we don't fight them there, we will fight them here".

Really it's a choice between allowing soldiers who volunteer to risk their lives there. Or there's the other option of allowing citizens risk their lives without choice here in resturaunts, on busses and trains, in schools, and on the streets.

Not sure if you're for real or are a disruptor, but we'd all like our soldiers to be home. They must stay until the job is done, as other posters have said quite eloquently, which may be a good long while.

Who is there that does not want the war to end ?

Simple question and a simple answer. The islamic-fascists and terrorists don't want the war to end. They don't want it to end until our way of life is gone and we are ruled by them.

How soon many have forgotten 9/11.

We'll probably start bringing them home in 2012, and finish bringing the last one home around 2025.

You are either jesting, or you are without a clue as to who we are fighting.

The enemy we are engaged with have been after us from their founding.
Mohammad has been after the "NON-believer" since day one.
You seem to be of the opinion that if we could just all get along
everything will be...hunky dorrie. Well it won't.

Please, please get your head out of the sand.
Nobody wants war, we want peace but they won't let us have it,

so we go to war, and let them play on their home field.

As much as it would be wonderful to hold the ticker tape parade for all the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, particularly as the holidays approach once again, it shouldn't be anytime soon.

The worst thing we can do is set a date--that only gives the enemy a tacit nod of approval and lets them start planning the real upheaval. Just think of the money and arms they could save between now and the "due date" if we gave them one!

Dividing Iraq into three "states" is a problem. We leave and the Shitte section is annexed by Iran, which is then in place to wipe out the centrally-located "Sunni-land." The Kurds in the north could become their own state, but as an independent diplomatic state they would be entitled to their own militia and possibly nuclear weapons as defensive weaponry against their hostile neighbots. Turkey would be part of the EU and their border with the Kurds is not a positive environment.

The new leaders (Iranian?) of Iraq would then sit on the second greatest oil reserve in the world. Wonder if we could get our solar panels and windmills up and running full-throttle by then?

The The islamic-fascists and terrorists don\\\'t want the war to end. and terrorists don\\\'t want the war to end.

I have never been able to agree fully with President Bush using the term islamic-fascists to describe the enemy.

It seems to me that Islam itself is the problem, not some subset thereof.
