Where was your kid in the last war? Mine was sitting in the desert at a secret base.
Trust me, Obama is a saint compared to George Bush Jr.
Did he not volunteer to kill people if ordered to do so???
Just sayin you dont join the military if you wanna plant gardens
I get a little pissy when people put my kid in danger for no damn good reason. He volunteered to defend the nation against real threats. Iraq was a war of choice for no reason other than JBJ's desire. Iraq didn't attack us. Iraq was not a threat to us. Bush 1 was smart enough to leave Saddam in place because he kept the balance of power in the region. Bush 2 ( who I voted for once) wasted trillions of dollars and thousands of lives and at the end we have a country that sides with Iran against us every chance they get and after the on going civil war is completed may well be ruled by the people we through out. If my son had been sent to Afghanistan I wouldn't bitch about it because it was justified and had to be done. Even though in Afghanistan the war was prosecuted poorly, Osama Bin Laden was allowed to escape.
I'm not excusing Benghazi but comparing it to the Iraq war is ridiculous. The drones are distasteful but they don't put American's in harm's way. And a few years after we leave Afghanistan things will be just like they were. We have to get used to the idea that as powerful as we are, America can't kill all of her enemies. In fact, every time we kill one we create 10 more.
It gets a little tedious listening to people demonizing Obama as though the country has has never endured such a curse. Just like Bush jr. he was ELECTED twice.
Hate is bad for me. Hate doesn't make me a better person. It doesn't improve my life. Hate will make you a bad husband, wife, parent, friend, it is like a cancer that will rot your soul and spoil any hope you might have of being happy.
People don't like Obama, I get it. I don't like him much either but I don't Hate him. I don't Hate Bush. Obama is going to avoid a war if he can and that makes him a lot better than Bush.
I'm taking a time out.
