JMO here, but:
This whole war is one big cluster f#%@. They should pull out, regroup and either call it quits or go after the Taliban as a whole and get this over with. Too many of our troops are dying for what boils down to be a greed driven war. 8 years is way too long to not have this resolved. I would be willing to bet that the majority of people have forgotten why we're even over there! It is my opinion that they (government) are more focused on the oil related politics than revenge for 9/11.
My brother is set to be home around Thanksgiving after a few weeks of obsevation to make sure he's not suffering from PDWS. I wish the same for everyone elses loved ones who are still on foreign soil.

-GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE TROOPS WHO PROTECT US-

I totally agree, Unleash Our dogs of war and let them do the frickin' job !!
Just like Vietnam, we are fighting with both hands tied tightly behind our backs. The reason we are there is noble, however we should FIGHT TO WIN !! Thank the 'politicians' in 'charge'.

The sad thing is here in Iraq since we "pulled out" of the major cities they restricted the soldiers to patrol only with Iraqi escort. While on the patrols the Soldiers are not allowed to fire a weapon even in self defense. IMO I think that is bullchit and we should be able to protect ourselves no matter if we got escorts or not. But that is just me.

It is useless to take control of any city, town or municipality if you do not have enough troops to stay there after taking control. The bad guys just flow right back in once the troops have to move on to another fight. I highly suspect the 40k being asked for in Afghanistan would greatly reduce this problem as it has in Iraq. The longer Blowbama the community organizer delays this to try and further his socialist agenda, fight with Fox News, etc., etc. the more of our folks come home in boxes.
Do ANY of us REALLY KNOW the purpose of this war.......not likely.........
Everyone has their opinion and in this country are free to speak it.

Just remember one thing: Sept. 11, 2001.

We have not been attacked on our homeland since that fateful day.

That is the very day my son said he wanted to become a U.S. Marine, I am so thankful for EVERY man and women that has fought for us in our 233 years of independence. It began before any of us were born and it will continue longgggggggg after we are gone. Fighting to maintain freedom is a way of life for the United States. We cannot pull out even if Blowbama doesn't give us the troops......If we do, they win! They retake the country and begin to train, plan and attack us once again!

When was the last time you worried about your wife being killed by a homicide bomber at the market? Or the last time you worried about your vehicle striking an IED? Or worried about your childs school being accidentally struck by a mortar round?
I hope you get my point: We will ALWAYS be in some sort of conflict with another country somewhere in the world.

Right, wrong or indifferent:
BE THANKFUL WE AREN'T FIGHTING IN OUR BACKYARD! That is why we need the extra 40k over there, of course, that is just my opinion.

Let the U.S. military dictate what happens over there, not the fu#@%!& MEDIA! I have had my personal experiences with the media in our great country, I will say loud and clear: THEY SUCK!

Man, I don't know where all that came from, but I do feel a bit better now.
I have no apologies for my feelings. I am an American and will apologize to no one for loving my country and it's colors that will not run (I hope).

Our liberals that voted for socialism will apologize for us!!

OK, I am done. :shock:
