Get the #ing hell out of there now!
There is no good to come out of this all.

I am so tired of the left/right crap in this country thst results in the ssme ole samr ole.
Do I have to go nuts on D.C.?

I hope not, my daddy tried to put a stop to all this world domination #. I am sorry that he has to watch this crap unfold before his eyes. He thought he did something permanent in the 1940's to stop this crap.

I'm sorry, Pop, you were duped. You did your best, though.

I'm just sorry you lived to see this crap. The greatest generation, ever, now has to reaize, it's all a dream and illujsion.

I lasted less than a minute when he started talking about 911 for the reason to add more troops that did it for me. 911 was a con job on the people of this country.

thanks for posting the other threads december_rain will have a look when i get back from work.
but i cant find the full speech anywhere if anyone can find it and post it. i would appretiate it very much so i can show my dad what he's become.

one thing that gets me is why don't they burn the opium fields or bomb them out of sight. but i guess they wanna keep them going. this war is another vietnam, its not meant to be won just sustained.

look out iran your days are numbered too.

really need that speech if anyone can help.

Obama's War Strategy:

1 - send young americans to kill people in other countries
2 - make military contractors/special interests rich
3 - "possibly" listen to voters as reelection draws near

Private contractors employed by the Defense Department in Afghanistan will continue to outnumber the size of the American troop presence, even after President Obama sends 30,000 more soldiers to fight in the war, according to the military's most recent contractor count.

The latest figure on DOD contractors in the country is a whopping 104,100, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command tells TPM. That number, which is expected to grow, is already greater than the 98,000 U.S. troops that will be in the country after the new deployments.

Just thought i'd add this
