    godnessgracious.you are right on the case!
    Our Czar needs to wake up and smell the flowers. There are certainly enough of them, with out murdered heroes coming home.
    Well, with his entourage all in Hawaii, while the body bags keep on coming home to Dover AFB and the "President, not there to console the families & friends, other than his one photo op.

    Is this a poison pen? No, I feel for the families & friends of those heroes who have fallen in this senseless (now) Obama war as well as the GWB(war).

    May you all find eternal peace in your next life and may god keep you at a special place at his feet

    R I P brave young men!!

    By the way for those that feel this is a memorial spot it is NOT. This is a response to a NEWS article. So do not come back with a lecture to me and the many who agree with me

    Cpl. Sean A. Osterman, and 3 other Marines, were killed in Helmand last week. The most deadly year for the coalition to date, the USA has suffered 493 KIA in 2010.

    How many more? This whole war is absurd. Maybe I didn't realize it on day one like many others, but when will the rest of us wake up and demand it end now. Why don't we go into Uzbekistan too? Taliban there too. The truth is USA supports many brutal dictators around the world, we just want our brutal dictators to be loyal to us. When they don't play ball we make up some seemingly just cause to rally the people around an absolute farce. I just can't believe anybody still trusts the gov't after Vietnam.
