“Not to mention that were were in a state of war with Iraq all through the 90s. Saddam never surrendered, nor did he observe any of the conditions of the cease fire”.
Which is why we should have used our military power to level Iraq’s defenses while targeting the Sadam regime in 2003, rather to go in by land, sea, and air in a nation building project.
It’s one thing for our troops to die fighting such as when our military landed on the beaches of Normandy. Every loss was tragic but they died fighting. What do the reports say coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan? Almost always that a humvee was on patrol and hit a roadside bomb and X number died.
I think to myself everytime.....for what? While on patrol? While driving down a road? This isn’t our troops dying in a war, it’s our troops dying in a series of fatal accidents. A long series of intentionally designed fatal accidents. That is what is so freaking frustrating about this. They are killed under conditions where they aren’t even fighting. That doesn’t take away from their bravery or combat skills, it simply makes their deaths senseless.
