    Re: Top Marine to Obama: Get in the Fight

    Its funny you call it a "withdrawal process" when it was a simple surrender, capitulation and walk away from victory handing victory to those we most wanted defeated. Just like we did in WWI and for it our world saw WWII....but alas the left can't bother to study history can it? I guess history lessons get into the way of "gender studies" and "underwaterbasketweaving."

    Good thing Obama appointed him...

    Amos should be fired! You guys didn't like it when top brass spoke out against Bush. And just because he "thinks" IS would never have come to power, doesn't mean they wouldn't have, and amongst other reasons, Obama was elected to get us out of Iraq.

    The Iraq story was never an accomplishment or a victory. And people elected Obama to (amongst other reasons) get us the hell out of Iraq.

    did you like it when top generals spoke out against Bush?

    if Bush signed the withdrawal orders, which he certainly did, why did we elect Obama to get us out of Iraq?

    Yes I did. I would also have no problem with top brass speaking out against Obama. I want them to challenge a president on such things. That said, in this particular case, I think what Amos is saying is wrong! As you can see right here on this board, there isn't much GOP support for withdrawing from Iraq, and Obama is being hugely criticised for it. Nevertheless, it can't be known that had a republican won the election that he would have withdrawn. Anyway, significant numbers of Americans were sick of Iraq, wanted out and felt that Obama would do it. Took a little longer than we would have liked, but.

    We had a plan in place to leave. We didn't want to be there, and they didn't want us there. Your definition of "surrender" differs from any other I've ever seen, which probably means your definition is wrong.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Time to get another General, and put this one out to pasture.

    Then who ever made that plan, and obama carried it out, was wrong. They are ignorant of history and are condemned to repeat it - like you.
