However, we have INVADED a soverign nation for reasons outlined by our President. Most of these reasons were NOT true.
I understand war, injuries, and death. We just need to make sure we are fighting for the right thing.
The ole Prez stated that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction that could reach us in 45 minutes. However, they had no launching system or missile
capable of traveling more than 500 miles. He stated that Saddam and Al Quaida were in things together when the fact was that Saddam was one of the
least trusted by fundamentalists because of his secular ruling. The list goes on and on.
We won the war, and are now losing the battle. Our administration had no strategy after the major conflict was over. Unless one wants to say the
strategy was to allow his cronies to make millions if any of this ever settles down(and it won't).
No major terrorist happenings in our country since 9/11? Hell, there frothing at the mouth because they have us just where they want us.
Anyone who thinks a nation's citizens will stand by and let it be occupied by another no matter what the reason
is not a thinking individual.
I am a veteran and proud of our soldiers. I don't want to see them killed and maimed for the wrong reasons. That is what is happening here.
Over 5,000 since the "End of Major Hostilities".
