Are these guys who are presidents in this usa mentally ill or what is exactly with them? Why does this mindless creature who seized a power there for the next 4 years want to murder these innocent people in their own country? And what rights did somebody give to him to invade another countries and to massacre native people there. Has he an imagination or his brain was eaten by drugs or alcohol or maybe both? Why do people as he and his fellows want to be responsible for death of innocent people? This country just this Afghanistan stopped to exist thank to his militaries and thanks to such politicians as he, people live in lamentable conditions, just army of usa commit there massacres and what purpose has increase of us military - to destroy all to basis, to massacre people continuosly. Why and in what purpose?

Anyone thinking about joining the military, just be sure you get all the facts about "STOP LOSS" policy that the Bush boy's have used that allows the military to keep you and deploy you until they say you can go home, retire or seperate. Get a lawyer to help you understand this portion of your enlistment. because the recruiter will not tell you about "STOP LOSS". your 24 month or 48 month active duty agreement means nothing to the military.Please get the facts before you take the oath!
