    Ridiculous. I tired of your babble and will not have anything else to say unless you surprise us by posting something worth replying to.
    Your address was lean!

    Many Americans are learning a lesson and pulling back, sorry that positive trend is disappointing to you.

    You are under no obligation to ever respond to me. Forgot where your ignore button is?

    Major General Bruno Hochmuth was killed when the helicopter he was traveling in was shot down.

    If that isn't getting Killed In Action, what is?

    Now you know.
    No, I already know.

    Here, let me educate you. This is an eyewitness account, in the form of a sworn statement by a Marine major who didn't obserbe the general's aircraft recieving fire, nor did he receive fire.


    Death of MajGen. Bruno A. Hochmuth

    Get in line. What poster here doesn't think he/she has someone to correct, lol. Probably thought you said something profound.

    And your vast international experience convinces you President Obama could have ordered all of our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan the second day he was in office. I can hear the howls of 'surrender' from the CONs, hell they howl about that now with Iraq....

    Again, if President Obama had just packed the military up and left after being elected the howls from the CONs would have been deafening. Fact is in Afghanistan BushII left the place to rot and allowed the Tally whackers and al-Queeras to regroup and find a new path. My personal opinion is the Taliban was never our target and once al-Queera slipped away we should have packed up and left... back in 2003. Once BushII put national prestige behind recreating a tribal society into a modern western one without much in the way of meaningful action our nation was stuck with trying to cover the dumb ass check BushII wrote....

    Don't presume to know what I think about a subject ahead of getting it from me. I have no patience for the sort of two-dimensional bickering some twits around here try to draw me into.

    Nope, Bush is responsible for an unstable Iraq and for much of our huge debt. He gets a little blame for Afghanistan (if he wasn't so obsessed with Iraq, maybe Afghanistan would have been handled correctly), but I'll blame Obama for the instability in Afghanistan. He should have left there in 2009.

    As to the racist thing.... not all, but far too many.
