    Who's exploiting anything? What precisely am I to gain by posting my opinion here? Sorry, but your dog doesn't hunt.

    I suggest to you that waging an unwinable war in which thousands upon thousands of innocents die is far worse.

    On this day we have lost 31 men. My love and respect goes out to their families. I am saddened because of their lost. I hope as a retired military man, civilian employee and citizen of this country that I can live my life to honor their loss.

    As I said, defeatism.

    I'm proud of these men and their service. I'm thankful that there are those in our country who will knowingly put their lives on the line in the service of their country.

    I may be mistaken but I believe his comment was in general terms. As in synonymous with all branches.

    After 911, the Taliban had to be taken down. That said, we simply can't stay in Afghanistan forever, and the Taliban will never be completely eliminated (half of it lives in Pakistan). We desperately need a smart exit-strategy. I love the troops and support them 100%, but we can't win there, and we can't stay there, forever. Sad, but true.

    I'm going to respect my friend Vancemack and not continue down this road with you.

    The real tragedy is IRAQ. We might actually have to stay there FOREVER, because of the value of its oilfields, and IRAN, which is poised to conquer them. We can't let Iran have that oil. No way.
