politicians don't give a crap about the troops. if the democrats cared about the troops, they wouldn't have voted to send them to war. anybody with a cerbreal cortex knew what bush was going to do. they wouln't have voted to send their own kids to war. they were afraid they would be called ''unpatriotic''and they were more worried about staying in office than they were about ''the troops.''that's all most polititicians care about anyway.the military supported george bush and look what they've gotten;endless tours, bad conditions in walter reed, and a president who doesn't even attend funerals.the military didn't like bill clinton because he was a ''draft dodger.''well, bush is a draft-dodger and they didn't have a problem with him.it's easy to be brave from the oval office.bush acts tough and sends others to fight and die. he joined the national guard [that's what you did back then to avoid being sent to vietnam]so all you gung-ho military types go to hell. maybe you in the military can over your miscoception that the republicn party is pro-militaty.there are a lot of draft dodgers in the republican party and you hating clinton and treating bush, who is just as much of a draft dodger as clinton is hypocritical.what have the republicans done for the military, exept vote for endless tours in iraq and no rest between deployments.wake up guys,george bush is not your friend.
