During Vietnam when "Haliburton Dick" Cheney might've risked all for his country, he said he had, " Better Things To Do." Like the men leaving to head to Iraq couldn't find better things to do for themselves.

The Head Coward BUSH was holding down a bar stool while loosing his medical status to fly the outdated jets we paid a small fortune for someone to teach this blockhead how to fly. Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, ran the Pentagon. That was like having Hugh Hefner instructing on lifetime marriages, Or Donald Trump advising how to maintain a low profile. The most corrupt and incompetent crowd to ever run the nation, and all who voted for them owe the rest of us a sincere apology for allowing them to kill and maim all those brave6 Americans for no good reason, beyond oil & war profits.

I earned my own right to free speech, thank you. This war is an abomination. More of our good young men and women being sent off to DIE FOR A LIE. Troops home NOW, and SAFE.
If no one died in this war, would it still be an "abomination"? If the media told you every day we were winning, rather than telling you we are losing would it still be an "abomination"? My guess is if the result were a little bit different than what the media tells you now, you would feel differently about it. Typical liberal thought process = which ever way the wind blows.
Keeping the troops AT HOME is what brought 9-11 to our shores in the first place.
You should really take a look here and see all the "good" this war has done

<quoted text>SIMPLY BECAUSE McCAIN WAS CAPTURED DOES NOT GIVES HIM EXPERIENCE TO GOVERN ANYTHING. NOR, DO HIS BEING A SENATOR GIVES HIM EXPERIENCE TO BE PRESIDENT. NO PRESIDENT HAD EXPERIENCE BEING PRESIDENT UNTIL HE WAS THE PRESIDENT.(AND WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR INFORMATION FROM, THAT McCAIN REFUSED RELEASE UNTIL HIS BUDDIES WERE RELEASED?). HE SURRENDERED.
Haaa, did the Daily Kos feed you the line that McCain surrendered? Look it up yourself. He refused to be released until every man there was let go. He had a chance to leave and refused.

Wow, how much other senseless misinformation do you have in your head?
