Couldn't agree more! At this point in time it's like killing an ant with a sledgehammer! Let's pull the military back from the middle east at last.

Only problem is that Obama does NOT want an increase in unemployment right before his re-election efforts. Funny how this country is ruled to appease the frickin politicians. What a sad sad state of affairs.

What is the net gain? We patrol the middle east and chase away all the bad guys but gas is still at over $4.00 a gallon. What a joke!
