Love the soldiers and all their sacrifices, but this is subtraction by addition. Same way in Afganistan and Iraq. We were supposed to leave Iraq and the Joint chiefs gave Obama the option of add 40,000 or 20,000 troops. 30, 000 went, went for nothing, too. The military industrial complex is running US foreign policy - just like Dwight D warned us about. Not even the president can do anything about it. Billions spent with no end game, except war profits, at the expense of the working class: the youth get thrown abroad like kindling to start a fire and the remaining taxpayers foot the bill. The profits go to the war bond stockholders and military contractors and corrupt banana dictators. The economy has tanked because of the all guns theory and the wealthiest americans now control a bigger share of the wealth than anytime in it's 200 year history. And we are in more wars than at any other time, too. Sad state of affairs for america's working class. Go off to war, come back damaged and loose your home, too. We should be ashamed.

YOU have no choice but to support our TROOPS, it is called taxes which are taken from you.

Now why would you send extra troops to down size the military occupation?

All we have won in the region is a temporary puppet government, plus all the death and destruction we caused.

Minnestoa is NOT in KUWAIT, the USA needs to guard its own borders.

This sick war has solved NOTHING, it is a total failure.

Sure ...thanks for all the innocent people you killed as well.

Our government will never tell how many, because they do not even know

Service and sacrifice.....sure. The Nazis and Japs were invaders as well, perhaps you should honor them as well.

Our troops are only as good as their orders....who will they attack next?

Whatever....our sheep are in Afghanistan and IRAQ, they are acting like they are winning something.

What exactly are we winning anyway?

Perhaps we are winning and illusion of victory?

Why would our STUPID government send 2400 troops to Kuwait to draw down our forces?

We are adding troops to subtract them...and Americans are stupid enough to believe that!!

How much are we paying GOD so that he will bless our stupidity anyway?

The vast majority of Americans are stupid and ignorant...they actually think our troops are heroic and serving their country.

I hear your mommy hollering down to the basement for you to wash your little hands and come eat your veggies, or there will be no bed time story for you tonight.

You are a coward, who would never have the balls to serve the United States. What is your problem, would they not let you in, or did you get kicked out prior to don't ask, don't tell?
