    RB....sorry to say, this is still my feelings.
    Lets get the heck out of there.
    I do not feel any safer with all of those young heroes coming home in body bags as a result of our Commander in-chief keeping this senseless war going. We only get body counts on a regular basis, not even those who have been wounded physically & mentally for the rest of there lives

    I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about our brave young men and women getting killed on what seems to be a daily basis over there in Afghanistan. I can't understand while we're even over there in the first place. After 9/11 we went there to find Bin Ladin...I get it, but then we turn and leave and go directly to Iraq to do what?..try and create a democracy? are you kidding me? We stay there for years and now we're gonna do the same thing in and around the Afghan/Pakistan border areas. That entire area is nothing but mountain-like terrain with a corrupt government that will never allow itself a real chance in democracy. The Taliban run the show and for us to try and change an idealogy that has existed there for centuries is ridiculous. BRING OUR KIDS HOME AND DON'T MAKE THIS A POLITICAL/CAMPAIGN ISSUE!!

    Praying for all who loved him, and for his comrades still in harm's way.

    RIP Valiant Warrior - RIP!!!

    God bless.
