Mr. Baird is one of our heroes for helpng to bring our friends and families home for a visit. My neighbor is one of the 201st to be shipped out soon. I personally know how much a visit means to the loved ones, My nephew got to come home for a very short visit and then was KIA less than 5 weeks later. God bless you Mr. Baird!

I take offense every day when people start chanting "Bring our BOYS home". As a woman and an Army veteran, I am proud to have served my country. In Operation Iraqi Freedom, 195,000 women have served in theater. They are just as an important part of the operation as a man. They deserve to be recognized for their contributions too. And honored and cherished for paying the ultimate sacrifice.

Dear female Army veteran - I do understand every word you say. The war is politics. The sacrifices and honors are personal. The Iraqi war should never have started and that is politics. The war
should have been in Afghanistan - that's were the
Al Qaida had their nests and craddle. But the Iraqi war is not against 9/11 terrorists only - some other political agendas decided too. And thus the GWB administration ows endlessly to the families and loved ones of 4000 GIs - not to mention the families and dependents on several hundred thousands of Iraqis - too many of them innocent victims. I therefore do undersatn also those who say send the boys home...Life is not so easy for most all of us in these questions.
But I admire your loyalty to your country.

And i thank you for serving. You should not take offense when people say bring our boys home. I know that there are women that are serving us. Not just men.

Since you evidently have the right answer to when-
pls share that with the rest of us now. The boys may be needing a return schedule to look forward to - they are only human beings like you and me. Things like that are important to them, you know, even if some of them and us are retarded as you so nicely put it....

SNJ, Joe Biden says Obama will be tested his first 6 months in office. If this involves a terrorist attack, do you think Norway would commit troops to help the US if needed?

We are already committed and present in Afghanistan and I am pretty sure it will be very difficult for our government today to say no to Obama if he came along and asked for more of our top-grade specialists/or ordinary troops. I think however, it may be "Very sorry, but no" - to McCain (presuming his philosophy on the Iraqi war will remain unchanged)

...if you have in mind another terrorist attack on USA like 9/11 f.inst. there will never be a question for "foreign" troops to help there (inside USA). If that is the question you are invaded and a 3rd WW is in full development - and then of course everyone will back up everywhere possible and necessary.
God forbid we ever get politicians in this world unable to avoid a 3rd WW.....
We need politicians that can convince without threatening....i.e. people who can communicate - who will be listened to-
Obama is one of those!!

It does not matter who we vote for all politicians are crooks. We are not a christian nation now, thats what is wrong with the USA. We as a nation have demanded that God be taken out of everything and I've wondered if just maybe that is what is going on with us... maybe God has just stepped back and said well lets just see how blessed they are without me.

thanks. maybe there won't be more big terrorist attacks. i don't agree with the war in iraq, but it has probably quieted down the muslim extremist groups

You kill some 30,000 Cristian people annually over there by fire arms and God knows how many more Christians you kill in traffic. Why don't you see immediately how pathetic your post is in
all it's selfish Christian fundamentalism.
May be you should welcome the day when there are less Christians trying to control other peoples thoughts, lives and choices...

They have taken some blows and - yes -it may look
like they are less able to move their elbows p.t.
However, they may pop up anywhere, any time. Increasing activity within Afghanistan. That is
hardly unexpected and can escalate.
