“Why is anyone surprised? Our troops have been screwed over by our government for a long time. Dont give Bush a pass. He and his pals are the ones who sent our guys into an impossible situation with no real objective in the first place.
Anyone with any knowledge of history could see that these invasions would turn into a long slog with no upside for our country. We have replaced one set of thugs with another, enriched and emboldened our enemies, wasted billions of dollars, put Democrats in office because people are tired of the wars, allowed the government to infringe on our rights and privacy, and most important, lost a lot of good people. There is no end in sight, and the idiot politicians want to invade Syria now! Its a travesty.
I am not anti-war. I am anti-stupid war.”
This is an excellent post!
