    I feel your pain, bro. I threw my back out running on Saturday and have been in agony until my chiropractor fixed me today. I also need a wife, because clearly between traveling for work and working in the office, I'm not keeping up with the housework.

    You need to live closer and we'd throw some beers back. I had some awesome brews in Alaska.

    Not with you mind you (sadly) but way ahead of you on that score! Ive recently discovered Rolling Rock. It is a nice alternative to MGD! That and a nice cigar...it helps...

    SO. Let me get this straight.

    This is for SOME conservatives in this thread, not all.

    When Obama sends extra troops to afghanistan, he's "elongating the war"

    When Obama decides it's time to leave he's "retreating".

    Jesus christ tough crowd.

    Conservatism is all about self reliance right?

    So let me get THIS straight.

    When your helping YOUR OWN PEOPLE financially it's socialism.

    When your helping a foreign people with the blood and money of your people its victory?

    WTF?

    What? You think that just because US troops leave Iraq, that we're going to stop giving them aid money? Ha!! Now, that's funny!!!!!

    I always prefer other countries fend for themselves and, if we choose a side in a conflict, for us to provide non-military aid and support.

    However - the Iraqi people, well, I truly just don't believe they can keep a firm hand on their new country. They're too rooted in their old ways and the filth that we tried to get rid of isn't 100% gone, either (it never will be - it's impossible).

    So, while it would be great if they could keep it together and head in this new direction - I believe they won't be able to manage it.

    And after spending away so much of our time, lives and money on the effort - it will be painful to watch it come apart before it's finished, you know . . . but that's what we'll be doing over the next decade or so.

    that's what happens when you try to rebuild a country who doesn't 100% want it - and who, in the past, has proven incapable of fending for their selves.

    Maybe at this point we'll figure this lesson out before spending 4,000 American lives on a job that can't be done. That would be awesome.

    : Yeah - our government learn from it's own mistakes? Oh - how humerous - that involves them admitting we've done the wrong thing. When pigs fly!!!
