The difference between Iraq and WWII is we already had all the men and materials. We didn't have to build thousands of planes, ships and tanks or draft millions of men. That is why the present wars are draining the economy instead of boosting it. Nation building is expensive and is hurting our country.
There were other means to deal with it which would have been less costly in money and human casualties, especially civilian casualties.
That's what happens when our leaders ignore the Constitution.
No Sir, my point is very moral. We owe EVERYTHING to those souls now on the battlefield in American uniform. We do not have moral arguments once our Congress has specifically authorized war, Sir, that is an insane endeavor. Argue strategy...argue whether a soldier's behavior is moral, argue tactics and even change them when necessary. Arguing about being there.....isn't appropriate. Yer there. You're in the thick of the fight, swords have already been drawn.
Whining....opposition based on "moral war" isn't relevant, these questions need to be answered beforehand...or after. We've men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, Yemen and Pakistan. They come first. How more moral can you possibly be? And opposing them for political reasons...is there any greater immorality.
Tighten the chin strap, Junior. Put your mouthpiece back in, quit talking, the ball has already been snapped. Standing there whining resolved to inaction is immoral, but, we'll have that discussion when we get back home. Right now, what say you get back in the game...the ball has been snapped.

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.
It's beginning to sound like "Planet Of The Apes" on this topic.

They say we're there now isnt the time. NOW IS THE TIME because later we might not be fighting. We arent going to wait until the fighting ends to say "Hey maybe we shouldnt have done that." How and why DO matter and always will. We refuse to ignore the fact that our kids are dying and the leaders of the Armed Forces are to blame! Do not sit there and tell me that this war is happening and that morality doesnt matter. If morals didnt matter we'd have nuked every single country we thought might even be close to sheltering terrorist after those damn planes almmed our buildings!!!!
