Ok so , we have decided that policing other countries isnt such a bad idea ... and we need to protect our interests in oil ... and people who dont have now - would like to have freedom ... hmm ... doesnt sound like we are leaving Iraq - or any other country anytime soon .
Let me share something else with you whiners about people losing their loved ones , and bring everyone home attitude . Yes it sucks . But for the ones who have enlisted in the armed services since the war .... the thousands ... do you think they had a blindfold on or something ?
No ... there are those of us who are willing to take risks , and who like to help others , and just like a firefighter going into a blazing house .... they have a drive to risk their own lives for the sake of others ... and not everyone gets killed doing this .... there are many who retire from the armed services , and the fire dept .
But if not for these people .... who give and dont worry about receiving .... what a mess this world would be in .
But my point was .... its THEIR decision why they are - where they are .
