    Yeppers, clearly all the wars the United States have fought are offensive, all righty, just look at that list. Two out of 13. That clinches it. Clearly US troops following lawful orders must bear the cost of their service because Comrade Osama orders it.

    Instead of realizing the issue at stake isn't about "free market" or as you put it "so called conservatives" you show you have no concept of what drives conservatives. You're pathetic.

    Absolutely one of the most important things on the Democrat agenda is the destruction of the US military. Telling the soldier that the government won't care for the disabled serviceman is an essential part of the demoralization of the finest military the world has ever seen.

    If those bastards weren't capitalist warmongers they wouldn't have volunteered to serve in the military, right? So they should pay the price for being evil.

    Before you know it, The Obama will bill shot-down pilots for the cost of the search and rescue pick-up.

    Practically all of the recent American wars have been offensive and not defensive. The soldiers aren't protecting anything that justifies dishing out billions to their health care. Also, how many people enlist in the military just to get those benefits? The same goes for their education.

    The military shouldn't be a free ride when everyone else has to pay out of pocket. And frankly, in these economic times, the military should not get half a trillion dollars in budget per year. I applaud Obama for seeking cut backs.
    You should be honest - with yourself, at least -- and remove the "moderate" label in your profile.

    The United States doesn't have socialized health care for it's veterans.

    The veterans have earned that service by their sacrifice under contract.

    Ain't socialism, it's a capitalist job fringe benefit used to recruit and retain the best employees possible.

    How is Afghanistan "defensive?"

    Or Vietnam?

    Or Korea?

    Did they invade the US or attack the US like Japan did in WW2?

    And if you read what Orius said - he said "recent", not "all....."
