It's horrible that Iraq is becoming a forgotten war.

Was Sarah Palin’s ranting and raving designed to distract us all from the boldest theft in history, the bailout of the stupidest, greediest bunch of Republican weasels to ever occupy Wall St. and the White House? Guess what? The bankers are going to use that dumb gift to finance the miracle last minute election of General Daffy Duck and Mistress Leia, Jesus have mercy on us all!

They set life up like a casino where you can’t possibly win in the long run. But you never stop trying because what else is there? Only to take over the casino, which nobody dares do or even dares to think about. But one thing that cannot be denied is that the payoff odds have just gotten sharply lower, suckers, homeowners, job holders, retirees. More on www.matrix-evolutions.com

The best thing that we could do to remember 'Those who served' is to get them the heck out of Iraq immediately. Not waiting until "Iraq is stable" which is NEVER going to happen as long as we are in there, but just pulling them out totally and letting the chips fall where they may in Iraq. Whether that means that Iraq turns into a Islamic dictatorship or stays a democracy.... I don't care.
I've HAD IT with our soldiers being killed for a war of LIES in Iraq. In Afghanistan, Bush was actually honest with us.... but that was part of his plan to get us into Iraq, because Congress figured "Hey, he was honest with us here.... he's probably being honest with us there as well!" and it turned out that he wasn't being honest.

I truly disagree with you there. As a former service man I have to say I seen alot out there overseas. The thing is we just can't leave an unstable government and bottom line if we do we will end up going right back there. The entire world will look at us Americans as weak and will try to take advantage. This is beyond terrorism. You have Russia now flexing it's muscle and now some South American countries talking hatred towards us. Yes it was a sham that Bush took us to war but we need to finish what we started.

The other day... I was soooooo disgusted, I overheard a fat property manager on the phone talking... he said:

"I don't care if he is in the military, they aren't paying rent, so just give me the word and I will get them out of there."

Basically, dude was talking about evicting a military family who was serving in Iraq.

If anyone is suffering because of the current circumstances, it is military people by far... Low pay, broken promises, dangerous work zone, few rights, and when they come home... massive debt and few skills that can transfer to a 21st century economy.

If the USA had more social programs... Military families would not hurt as much as they do.

The military has programs for families and soldiers do get paid well. Altough not enough for losing a life over but they do. Could be variety of problems. Maybe delay in pay or what ever.
