i can't believe there are actually people running for president in america that want to do this (abandon iraq). unbelievable. btw, none of these candidates will win the election. i can at least see reasons for debating going to war, but once the decision is made, is there anyone who thought the country would change overnight? i could have told you before the first bomb was dropped that there would be some ongoing skirmishes; possibly for years to come. i will say, though, although i'm no military general, our guys over there should be FULLY SUPPORTED. by that i mean, they should have everything they need. i don't see why we have 2 guys driving around in a jeep, or 2 guys guarding a checkpoint. anywhere they are vulnerable, there should be overwhelming force available to them. anyone who willingly attacks an american soldier should know they are not going to get away with it.
