Whatever it takes to bring all of our capture soldierís home, you do it. Thank God We the People elected President Obama to end these wars and bring all of our troopís home to their families. Those tea-bagging right-wingers who donít like it I say letís capture them and swap them for our captured soldiers.

All of you unpatriotic right-wingers: STFU!

So when Bushy Boy was playing golf while the sh!t hit the fan in 2001, did that impress you the same way?

All you idiots in the USA deserve the leaders you get. Your long drawn-out advertisement festival you call campaigning is BS and leads to electing nothing more than a bad reality show and pandering to lobbyists.

It is a horrible waste of time, money and resources.

Minor research... MINOR research would tell you Bush was reading stories to little children.

We know about you Muslims and Muslim sympathizers and Leftist queers in Australia... instead of open elections and electioneering, you'd rather the tyanny of the Taliban and mutilating all girls.

Five for one? Everyone with a human heart is glad Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been released from captivity. But, the question that should be asked is this.

If it was possible for the US to capture bin Laden out of an unfriendly and hostile area of Pakistan, WHY WASN'T IT POSSIBLE FOR OUR MILITARY TO PLUCK HIM OUT OF THE HANDS OF THE TALIBAN IN AFGHANISTAN? I mean, after 5 years , surely our illustrious leaders knew exactly where he was and how he could be rescued. I SMELL A RAT and I think the special ops people in the military wanted to rescue him but couldn't get approval from "on high". Why? Ask the political leadership in Washington DC. There's more to this than meets the eye in my opinion.

I've heard it only takes an IQ of about 60 in order to tie your own shoe laces. I suppose that's why so many Australians wear flip-flops.

Since you cut and pasted this ignorant and fraudulent post all over TOPIX, I guess we can do the same.

Please, phoney vet, STFU!

Your blatant ignorance and partisanship proves you arent and never where a vet.he notion of negotiating with terrorists is well known to be a non-starter (as you Libs love to say).

Not negotiating with terrorists protects soldier and tourists alike.

But as long as Obama did it, no matter how many men and woman are now captured and held POW due to Obama's negligence, its ok with you (aside form the FACTS you ignore like AWOL, desertion).

You have proven over and over you couldnt be a vet nor served in active duty. One day your lies and ignorance will catch up with you. Hopefully its sooner than later. Your BS defiles the honorable colors and seal of the USMC. You are a fraud of the highest order. Have some pride.

So you are ok with the US negotiating with terrorists which then encourages said terrorists to capture OUR soldiers and US CITIZENS all in the name of politics (Aside from the FACT the guy was an anti-american, like Pat the Fraud Corps, and deserted his post after writing anti-patriotic hate speech online)?

Think about it, Obama only has a few years left, we have to deal with the repercussions of this for decades to come. Hopefully none of your relatives in teh future are kid napped over seas for a terrorist exchange. After all, we give 5 to 1 AWOl. Imagine a law abiding citizen? Thats gotta be worth at least 10 to 1 right?

Anything to make my side look like the right side damn the consequences!

How many captured soldiers do you think we have, Moonbeam? This guy was the only one, and he wasn't captured so much as he deserted to the Taliban. His daddy told him to do it. The whole town will honor this POS, because they don't know he is turned. He is Taliban. Why do you think they took him to Germany rather then bring him here to America?

another scandal created by non other than our leader. And the greatest betrayer is our own leader sympathizer to the terrorists and now this is the mother of all scandals GOD HELP US. The deserter's crime will be absolved and the dictator will reward him with a high position within our national security ! Even CNN finds this extremely out of hand, not letting Congress know about his intentions.....Cnn claims the dictator broke STILL ANOTHER LAW, here

People do not understand the pernicious nature of the Bolshevik mind, whether some lowly troll on Topix, or President of the US.

This whole Bergdahl drama has been planned to benefit the Taliban for many years. Why else would the President insure almost immediately that US soldiers serving with Bergdahl sign non-disclosure agreements?

Leftist and the violent Muslims representing the horrors Leftists use to gain total power think in dualistic terms always. Obama likely knew the real facts would emerge about his illegal use of Bergdahl to release known extreme Taliban and al Qaeda criminals. He thinks it's a win-win. He wins the release of people severely guilty of crimes against humanity and if anyone actually is able to start impeachment against him for his illegalities... he further polarizes the US, causing Blacks to become even more violent in their Black on White crimes... living out the ideas of the Black Muslim preacher and ideas Obama funded for twenty years: Louis Farrakhan and his desires for a race war. Time after time, Obama has shown he supports Islam in its war against America. He's funded, armed and empowered Islam's most violent elements in country after country.

What a bunch of suckers Americans have been. The madness of the neo-Bolshevik mind will eventually poison itself.

If democrats were any stupider for voting this obvious Muslim into office, I don't see how they could be though.

Democrats have to be the dumbest people on earth.

The whole world is laughing at them for being so naive and empty headed.
