    Knowledge is a good thing in and of itself. However, I AM NOT advocating that anyone put on the uniform and accept the risk that you are talking about. Ask your question to those who are advocating such a thing.

    Preach to those who advocate the killing of others children.

    If Iraq warplanes were flying over the US, don't you think we would be shooting at them?

    Which part of the constitution says that we should be "enforcing the no fly zones...in Iraq"?

    And we wonder why those people hate us so much.

    In 1980, when there was no war involving American personnel, there were 1,556 American servicemen who died in training accidents, serving their country. But, we know neither you, nor your kids will ever be one of them.

    Yeah, because we all know, that no matter what happens, it won't be your kids. So, what do you care how bad the situation gets?

    Not really. He doesn't hate the troops like Obama does.

    Man, ad hominem in the third post.

    How much time do you have in the sandbox, boogie? How many of your close friends are there right now?

    I'll wager a platinum membership my numbers for both are higher than yours.




    I mean, since we've apparently decided who is allowed to have an opinion on foreign policy based upon the standard of sacrifice......

    That's an interesting tidbit of information. Here's some more...

    America's Deadliest Jobs - Forbes Each year thousands of U.S. workers die from injuries on the job. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics‘ National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries shows a preliminary total of 4,609 fatal work injuries in 2011
    But I have no clue what this has to do with this thread.

    Maybe that explains why Obama isn't so fast to send our troops to a unwinable war in a foreign country to fight against an enemy that we can not identify, and who has not attacked us and who doesn't represent any clear and present danger.

    If he didn't hate our troops, he would probably have ordered them into direct combat in every hotspot in the world.
