As US marks end of war in Iraq, parade honoring troops isn't even in planning stages

There are 8 comments on the The Washington Post story from Dec 27, 2011, titled As US marks end of war in Iraq, parade honoring troops isn't even in planning stages. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

Americans probably won't be seeing a huge ticker-tape parade anytime soon for troops returning from Iraq, and it's not clear if veterans of the nine-year campaign will ever enjoy the grand, flag-waving, red-white-and-blue homecoming that the nation's fighting men and women received after World War II and the Gulf War.

As a republican I love a flag draping, pubescent , public show of veteran support but behind closed doors . I LOVE to cut their VA benefits lol.

PHCK Veterans.

"Rather than trim from the Pentagon's budget, the GOP assembled its package of $61 billion in cuts from deep reductions to non-defense discretionary programs, including $2.6 billion in funding provided to care for America's veterans through the Veterans Administration.

Leaders of VA's largest union, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), say that the reductions threaten the health care and benefits delivery services provided by VA employees."

I agree.
Soldiers don't deserve a damn thing . Only to get phcked over real good republican style and that is why I vote republican and voted for Florida's tea party republican governor Rick Scott.

"There is a $35 million cut to the Department of Veterans Affairs and a $173 million cut to the Agency for Persons With Disabilities right alongside a $300 million increase to the Executive Office of the Governor.

And to think Scott had the nerve to unveil that inside a church."

they don't deserve a parade. iraq lasted more than twice as long as ww2, but was not a victory or anything to be proud of. the us military literally had to run out of iraq in the middle of the night! and the iraqi prime minister who these idiots were really dying to keep in power snubbed them at their farewell cermony. neither the iraqi prime minister or president attended. a lot of the soldiers are criminals and thugs who raped iraq girls and american servicemembers. i never agreed with the stupid war and will never thank them for anything. the iraq war may have greatly enriched certain people and corporations but it didn't do anything for the american people.
