it is just lobal genocide and global crime against humanity commited by global war criminals: bush, obama, clintons and the rest of this mad pack: gingrich, santorum, romney and it is just thanks to you, because you give green light for such people for rulling.Hopefully your next elected presidunces romney or sanctorum or even odumbaya will begin new war and your country will be no problem anymore for nobody, it will be not your country anymore. It can be done in such way too, if you cannot fix things peacefully.
And certainly, you should fu.. out of this Afghanistan and quickly, not in 2 or 4 years or in 10 years but now.

Obama was wrong about Afghanistan. We should NEVER have gone in there in the first place, just like we should never have gone into Iraq. Just as we need to stay out of Syria an Iran.

both your parties are responsible for these wars and presently rule such democrats as clintons the same scoundrels as bushes and repubs push the same guy as bush. How do you want to end it? Maybe it is easy way to end it, to vote just like you vote till now, your presidunces will make global world war and you will be destroyed as country and it will be peace after this war. How do you think? It is good idea too. Why do you fu.. suc h bs they your odumbaya and his fellows clintons- global genocides and global mass murderers from republican party( romney, gingrich, santorum ) will end the war. They will NEVER do it. They want to invade Iran, it is their next plan and they want to unleash global world war, it will be consequence of their plan.
I support romney, it is really decent guy- global robber, global mass murderer, you deserve such president, he will give good lesson to you and it is right.

Tony, America does not want peace. Both parties are involved. Our politics for the last 20 years has been middle east intensive. Three of the last four Secretary of State's were/are female. The one male resigned and was a former General because of our policy. Now the middle east is a very macho or male dominate region of the world. A lot more have nots then haves in a tough patch of real estate to eek out a living. Having a woman come there to tell them what to do or else does not play well. To be in the game, you have to play the game. We are lip service and threats and waiting for an excuse. Life and death is a real thing. We sanitized it on our HDTV's. Again, both parties are involved including the current President.

Libya was an exception for me. Don't you remember anything about the plane crash - and the strong evidence that that dictator ordered it? do you want to coddle terrorists and the heads of state who really support them?

well, about the woman thing, to some extent you are correct, and this is not a good time to promote feminism at the expense of realism. the worst case was when the Ambassador appointed by GHW Bush to Iraq, was a woman, and was sent to talk to SH and to tell him not to get TOO tough with Kuwait - back before the first gulf war. I think the name was something like april austin? the wording almost seemed like a little bit of aggression would be understandable. the allegation was the Kuwait was siphoning off Iraqi oil by drilling on an angle, or something, I recall.

but this is ridiculous! where are you from? are you a German? we have communicated before, I believe. If you are ub Germany and a German, tell us so, so we can express our views about the history of your country's leadership, and the people who put them there.

so why aren't you there fighting? and O did not say we should cut and run. you go volunteer to go and take your fellow-yellow chicken hawks with you - many of us would gladly extend the war in AF and elsewhere, if all the soldiers were like you. no real loss to worry about. no nice young men.

Yes, and I would urge Democrats and independents who are for peace to go vote in GOP primaries for ron Paul - not to cause trouble, but to send a pro-peace and anti-warmongering message. And I hope there are also some republicans who vote in primaries who are anti-war, also. more than 10% in some states, it seems.

what about the argument that by staying out entirely, we would be letting the situation be out of our control, and things might happen that might force us into war later, on worse terms? you did not approve of the slight intervention in Libya, even? it worked, I think. at least it god rid of a bad guy - a real terrorist-supporter and oppressor of his people. and without boots on the ground and U S soldiers at risk.
