He ran on bringing our troops home. Now more Fathers, Mothers, Son's and Daughters, are being sent to fight with their hands tied behind their backs. These brave heros are being sent into a fight that they can't win because of rules of engagement that puts them at greater risk than war itself. Fight to win or get out.

#6 Jun 19, 2010 live in the US and you're gonna say things like that! Sounds like instead of sitting around collecting your unemployment in your wife beater, perhaps you should apply yourself and maybe do something creative .......or go stand in front of a firing squad!! I think anyone that would make comments to people that are defending you is a "retard" yourself. Come on pal...grow up a little! Hopefully I won't "seeya" later!

It is obvious from your POST you are an idiot, you can't spell! You wouldn't have the guts to tell any soldier face to face what you try and write. I bet you tried to get into the service at one time but were rejected because you are an idiot. People like you make me sick!

"Old Soldier" thank you for your input on this!! And thank you for your service! It's people like you that make our country a better place. People like "seeya later" can just rot in hell!!

First off, the conversation above: I love the army, i'm not in it, but love the work they do and admire them. "seeya laster" You don't know what you're talking about; It just makes you look bad, and makes you lose credibility. Secondly, why are we getting deployed to Iraq again? I swear i heard that we're to stay out of that red zone.(iraq)
My opinion is we should finish the task and then leave. Airport security is a big factor in this because of the idiots over there that would like to ruin our lives for their incompetence.

You have the right to your opinion and you have the right to voice it. Now, turn around and thank a member of our military because they are the reason you have that right. Our military men and women fight for your freedom. They put their lives on the line for all of us. It doesn't matter if you agree with the war or not but you had better support and stand behind the men and women who fight for our freedom even if it means sacrificing their own lives, show some respect.
See ya

You people are as big as retards as the retards in the military. The whole reason they are there is cuz of oil.Oil like that which flows out of control in our own Golf everyday.Oil thats killing this planet.If you want to be shot at or blown up for that it makes you a RETARD!!!My freedom has not been at risk since WWII thank you very much.Retards.

I wished I could have been at the send-off. I want to thank those who are leaving for serving this country and myself. I have the highest respect and regard for these people in uniform. Raised in a military family was not easy - but I have grown from the experiences that I got to encounter as a child. I am thankful for my Long Line of Military Family and the sacrifices they have made in my behalf and others.

See Ya you are one ungrateful snot nosed brat! its too bad you show how ignorant you are. you need to go back and learn some real history from WWll and beyond. your president has done nothing to stop the oil spill because of all the money he received for his election campaign.
Why don't you get out of moms basement, pull your pants up to your waist, and go save the gulf coast? Or are you all tied up playing video games for the summer.
Ignorance is bliss, take a bow just don't fall on your face cuz poop splatters !

Nearly 4,000 of our troops died because of his STUPID mistake !!!!!!

See ya,
Really?? I'm shock as to the things you say about those brave men and women that go out and fight for our freedom. You don't have to agree with the war, I know I don’t; however, I would never in my right mind go calling someone a retard or stupid. Only retard and stupid person I can think of right now is YOU. I dare you to tell everyone who you are, see how brave you are then after someone goes and kicks your A** for your nasty words. Those men and women are risking their lives for us. For you and they don't deserve to hear such horrible things from people like you. Like Army Vet Says, get out of your momma's basement, get off the boob and do something about the gulf coast. Your momma did you wrong, raising you to believe what you believe, and if that's not how she raised you, SHAME ON YOU FOR DISAPPOINTING HER JERK.

It's people like see ya and supper puke that men and women put their lives on the line for everyday. Do they deserve the same rights and privleges as the rest of us honest hardworking Americans. NO, NO, NO! So take a hike you misserable flee infested vermin.

Take a hike and go live in Iraq or Iran where you belong and see how your misserable flee infested selves are accepted there.

They are always looking for idiots to strap a bomb onto for fun.
