There is no reason to blame those serving in the military for where they are deployed. Anyone who does is shortsighted. The focus could be toward those who make the policies.But the american who doesnt back the men and women of the armed forces in Iraq is a plan idiot. They were called to duty, or go to jail. They are there for us. All the freedoms in this united states that we have we have fought for and some died for. Do some history of past and present. Countries hate us. If it was'nt for the military do you think you could voice your opinion, vote, read and watch what you want,invest, save work for yourself. You seem like a good guy but just try to imagine yourself in a tent in the middle of the desert with people shooting at you and you can't leave go home or order a pizza. Oh and by the way the people at home[some] think its stupid and your fault for being there. JMO Victor
But to then say that McCain, who would stay in Iraq for 100 years, is somehow immune from criticism because he served, is patently absurd.
He is lobbying for a job as POTUS, and is flat out telling us that we will continue to tell the Muslim world how to live. That's fine if you're talking about the community near Detroit, as that region is still under his jurisdiction.
But as for a plan to counter the Muslim expansion worldwide, what has it accomplished?
Oil went from $28 to $99 a barrel. Am I supposed to feel safer?
I will support the troops in Iraq, but as for making the area into some sort of forward point of action(presumably for Iran), I do not support the top brass making that call. JMO
