    I don't know about that. I worked at Ft. McPherson as a DA civilian and once Ft. Mac closed down, I went with FORSCOM to Ft. Bragg. The active duty seemed pretty happy with the president in both places. Now a lot of the retirees came down hard on him, but not the active duty. I also noticed all Michelle and Jill Biden were doing for the military soldier and their families.

    I think what most military want right now is the VA fixed.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The US will turn Iraq into another battle field. Let Arabs fight Arabs. Decades ago, it was Saddam's Iraq vs. Iran. Now it will be Sunni's Iraq, Saudi, Qarda vs. Shiiti Iraq, Iran.

    That's a strategy it used to use. Like they manipulate Democrats and Repblicans in domestic politics.

    Three U.S. officials familiar with ongoing discussions said the potential of sending special forces to Iraq is high on a list of military options that are being considered.'

    So...first no troops to Iraq...and now some troops to Iraq.

    So much for Obama's word.

    But I am quite sure liberals will make excuses for him...again.

    and are carrots involved?

    Mornin' Nick .....BO basically told Maliki he has to step down. Plus BO says he will check with Congress on his every move. Oh and he is Sending Kerry to Iraq.


    Although I wouldn't consider that as a carrot. More like a turnip.

    Re: Obama considers special forces to help in iraq

    I read yesterday that Obama is sending 300 special forces troops to Iraq to help with training, etc.

    Does anyone think that 300 men will be able to do in Iraq what thousands of men obviously weren't able to do in 11 years?

    I don't.

    Hmm. Imperial Presidency. Dictating to a sovereign nation's elected leader that he has to step down.

    Where are all the cries about interfering in another's country now?

    I don't.

    Mornin' SN. I heard they will split into 12 Men units and will be needed to target any Air Strikes we make. The Majority will be going North towards Mosul. Hold down some major Assets.

    Either way we going back in.....despite BO sayin no Boots on the ground. Also despite him not wanting to deal with Iraq and walk away from it without putting in much effort. Then his usual about War.

    Nope, sending them bad. Period. I would have much more respect for him if his just called it what it is in Iraq and turned his focus on the US for a change.
