    Which is it, do you want to pull out now as I do? Or are you just taking that position as a dishonest political hack?
    I am just showing how Obama is using the troops for political gain

    Come on be a man, take position?

    Do you agree with continuing the decade long wars as Obama does, or do you think its time to withdraw.

    Obama does not want to continue it but he will use our troops as a political tool and pull out troops for the election cycle.

    I did not ask what Obama wants. I asked what you want. Once again, do you support continuing the decade long wars in the ME, or don't you?

    Man up and take a position.

    I disagree with both you and Obama on that. To continue to sacrifice our young men and women for no gain is immoral in my eyes, not to mention that it is just adding to the national debt as taxes to pay for the wars were cut during the Bush Administration. You see, I am opposed to wasteful government spending that adds to our already huge national debt.

    In case you haven't noticed, we have some problems of our own right here in this country that needs to be addressed.

    Whether or not they died for nothing has little to do with anything presently going on in either Afghanistan or Iraq. If we were ever concerned about that, we would have treated their lives more preciously and never put them in a situation where that would ever have to be said.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You would be correct, if not for the fact that the service members, as a whole, don't want to leave the job half-done.

    Most of the people who insist that we leave Afghanistan, have never and will never serve in the military and their POV is a million miles away from your average service member.

    Well, I think I'm correct regardless. However, what was the job?
