    True, but that was when most of the money spent on ww2 was spent in this country and went fairly quick into american worker's pockets. Now it goes to China and the corrupt regimes that we support in the war.

McCain was too honorable a man to fight the likes of junior Bush.

    McCain seems like he is a little loopy, nowdays but I like him.

    Obama really jump started his bid for the presidency by inferring that he would quickly end the war, if elected. I expected him to know and respect our constitution enough to end this faux war. I mean he has enough education to know.
    So you vote for Biden?

    Exactly...they are soo predictable. The cry and cry about the state of the economy...and yet they gladly throw billions and billion to fight a war that we shouldn't be in in the first place.

    At least their inconsistency is consistent.

    I guess they want Obama and our country to fail for their own selfish interests.

    It isn't thrown gladly, that's an incorrect presumptive statement. And our Sons and Daughters are in those conflicts and thus there is no question...gladly or otherwise...that we pour monies into these wars. Both Congressionally Authorized specifically, both seeing over 100,000 troops in theater after Obama's surge is implemented(the anti-war, Cindy Sheehan type, Lancet believing nonsense now vanished), there is no excuse for standing there and whining about this decision to go in.

    Disney...you watch any football? Gonna glare at any playoff games this weekend? If not, why don't you....I want you to see an analogy there. See...once the game has begun. Once the stakes are set down. If you're already there....then you are useless standing there and whining about how we got there in the first place. As long as you have boots on the ground....helmets on any field...then you must strap up. Hit somebody. Tackle a running back, deflect a pass...do something. Bring gatorade on timeouts if that is more your expertise, your role matters not. You simply and plainly cannot be successful at any endeavor while infighting on your own sidelines.

    Argue beforehand, strive to change or alter strategy. Elect or vote or assign someone to call plays...but don't stand there afterwards and impotently complain. It adds nothing. It doesn't serve any purpose other than to expose a political agenda.

    The billions "thrown" are necessary discretionary spending that happens to be a mere fraction of the entitlement spending that's now throwing trillions at problems created by guess what......massive government corrupt and inefficient programs. We have soldiers with their lives on the line every second of everyday, would you like to discuss throwing billions with their parents?

    And we won't care to ride into this health care debate or where this argument of yours stands on "throwing billions", my guess is your argument hypocritically supports government run health care. Speaking of inconsistent.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Charles Martel, I think he was making a moral point and you are making a military point.

    Is this war moral?

    War is never moral. No matter what you say or how hard you try you can NEVER justify the taking of a human life. But some things, moral or otherwise, must be done regardless. War is one of these things.

    THANK YOU!!!!! FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT!

    But regardless of how [much] we contribute the war is being fought and we are not winning. So since you're so very knowledgable please tell me, why in the hell are we spending billions on a war we are losing???
