What comes around goes around. Why is the community so eager to let loose a cold-blooded murderer around their homes, their families? Do they believe he would only harm Iraqis with hands tied-back?

If the government or the President didn't want our solders overseas then they should not be sending them there. it is the fault of the President that the solders are there to begin with, it is he the President that should be prosecuted, not the solders. These solders are not sent there to go on a vacation they are sent there to fight a war,our government and President started or got the united states involved in.
