They are getting picked off one by one. When will it end? What is the resolution? It is stupid for us to be over there anyway. Bring all troops home and if they start acting up then level the entire country. Simple.

I find it hard to believe that after our government and the rich screwed every middle class and working family with nafta and china trade that working class families are willing to send their kids into the millitary.Fighting for your country and way of life should be based on how much you have to lose .If your wealthy you have more to lose so your kids should go first.
