    What the HELL is that?

    However much I understand her agony and feel for her - She needs to accept that her CHILD grew up, became a MAN, joined the ARMY and now she should be proud that he's doing his JOB with dignity.

    I don't see this as being "concerned citizen demanding action from the government for the sake of all people"
    I'm seeing this as "hover-mother overly concerned and unable to let her child leave the nest and make decisions for himself"

    I speak from pesonal experience when I say that her son joined the army with the understanding that the Commander in Chief would never leave him with his ass hanging in the wind, on some foreign battlefield.

    While I agree with you that he needs to act - nevermind . . .

    I'm being a judgemental douche, I know . . .

    Bush started the war? So how is Obama leaving his ass hanging?

    I mean I want us to pull out, but I don't want to see another south Vietnam style pullout.

    Yes, I'd like a complete victorious pullout, too.
    If we're going to pull out we might as well get the job done before we do it.

    As a soldier, you know that a commander is repsonsible for the men under his command. It is his job to insure, to the best of his ability and fullest extent of his paower and available resources, to provide his soldiers with everything they need to do their jobs.

    I mean I want us to pull out, but I don't want to see another south Vietnam style pullout.
    If we leave with the job half way finished, that's exactly what we'll have. Then, in ten years, we'll be sending more young men and women to do it all over again. To leave now would be nothing but a quick fix.

    I want us to win, but that's not going to happen. So we should pull out immediately and completely to save the lives of our men and women in theater. I would like to see a Vietnam style pullout because of the harm it will do to Obama.

    Btw, I loathe the Republicans as much as Obama. In order for my vision of America to be born, Obama must be discredited. Obama must be forced into the role of mere caretaker just as Bush was in the last two years of his presidency.

    When I was in Special Force, my ass was often hanging in the wind, bro. But, that's when the real fun starts.

    My War Strategy mirrors my Sexual Strategy.

    You have to pull out when it's time to pull out...then ram it in the ass, no questions asked.

    A victory every time.
