Why did I know that copy cat little rebuttle was to be expected from a childish low information voter. Without your mantra you are lost. That's why you make hundreds of post of three words or less.

We went to war in Iraq, because Clinton was trying to hide a blue dress. Bush went to Iraq, because a liberal,(Valerie Plame), the cia opperative gave the analysis that said there were WMD's. Now WMD's were found and that's a proven fact, but not nukes. Both Bill and Hillary said Hussein was dangerous and had WMD'S, so go blow your smoke up Mykros ass and maybe the second hand smoke will finally work.

LIV? Make that NO information voter, in your case. The ONLY thing true in that whole post was that the Clintons claimed Saddam had WMD, which was of course FALSE.

Funny how you seem to blame them for that and yet claim he had WMDs at the same time! LOL

I love these stories.$90B? And what's the deficit up to?
Apparently when get to the top seats you completely forget basic math. I say, if these politicians want to burn money, they should use their own money and stop using mine!

I hear you low information voters aren't allowed a smart phone, it's an oxymoron.

Old news and the number seems very low in all actuality since just a year or two the GAO found that there was roughly 80 billion in reconstruction money unaccounted for altogether. Must be those cash bribes we paid the local warlords and so on, like in Afghanistan.

On your ps.....You are damn correct there is zero logic in spending billions to defend Europe and Japan from Soviet aggression.
pps....Because they signed up to serve you and your country .They risked their live for you ..damn it. You may hate the war, I do, but the grunts on the ground did not create the war. If risking your life for your country isn't heroic there is little that is.
Hate W.
hate Rumsfield .
Hate the war in Iraq..
...God bless the grunt
I disagree on your response to the pps. The media started blanket application of the "hero" label, not the American people or veterans. As a result the meaning of "hero" has been cheapened and diluted. Few if any people entering the military since Reagan was in office are doing so to serve. How much risk to their lives is there in Italy and Japan? Many ended up in the military due to overzealous recruiting and glorification (quotas to fill), failures in education, family, life or school (no direction, purpose, maturity or goals), or boredom. Sadly the statistics for brain injuries and suicide for the past few wars mean a sad legacy for the vets, families and passive American society as a whole.

Yes I agree the word hero has been overused and cheapened. I think the poor economy & lack of good jobs along with lying recrueters & TV add campaigns made the military attractive to many young gullible folks.

the two items are inter related the vast number of military personel overseas is a reflection of the large number of un needed bases.
The general public recognize the diffrence between a grunt in Afganistan and a recuiter in Kansas City.
My nephew has been in Iraq three times as a infantry Sgt. There are fourty year old National guardsmen who have been shoved into harms way doing jobs twenty year old soldiers could be doing if we didn't have to defend Munich from the Reds.
Those guys who's tours have been extended do to stupidity in Washington are still heroic.
