    The Iraq War began on Thursday, March 20, 2003 and ended on Sunday, December 18, 2011.....snip~


    Heya Moot did you still want to go with Iraq being the longest war ever fought in US History. Moreover where did you get the GOP doesn't want to pay for wounded VETS? You don't think BO's focus war on Afghanistan can compare do you?

    Also why do you try to spin it from what CNN and the MS Media is now reporting. You didn't think BO could get around his Campaign Promise now did you? Or you didn't fall for his okie doke of he is just finding out.

    Unspent money is money that was totaled up yet never used. As pointed out....coming from the withdrawal of troops and equipment. Yet 10k was left in Iraq.

    Actually, the VA predicts that the number of veterans will drop by almost 10 million between today and 2040.

    The Iraq war produced many less military veterans than Vietnam, Korea, or WW2.

    GOP and Bush are long gone. Barry is in charge. But he didn't know nuttin'.

    According to a local talking head, during Bush, Barry was a Senator and on the VA affairs committee. Talking head claimed Barry attended 17 out of 38 committee meetings. That could be why he didn't know nuttin.

    Heya Jimbo .....yeah he knew. That's why he was stammering in front of the cameras. Not just stuttering.

    Veteran Affairs Dept Budget

    2014: $154B
    2006: $73B

    Wait Time in Days for Care

    2014: 360
    2012: 255
    2010: 115
    2008: 110

    US VA Affairs data.....snip~


    Must have been all that Campaigning in 2010 and 2012......then, that is when BO just became to busy with all his other scandals to deal with.

    It may drop even more if they can't get the health care they need.

    Unless, of course, we get into yet another war.

    Well, it is not unusual that one President will hold over people from the previous administration. Certainly George W. Bush kept some of Bill Clinton's appointees. I honestly don't know of Shenseki deserves the lion's share of the criticism or if he in fact is trying to fix things as much as in possible in a massive bloated bureacracy with a lot of incompetency built in. But also he would not be the first suited for one major role in life who was not able to duplicate that success in a totally different role. If that is the case he should be replaced. I have heard pros and cons expressed on that, both of which rang credible.
