The problems of soceity can only be discussed during republican administrations.

Some don't the naive do. A Democratic Society accepts lies and propaganda, makes excuses till the bitter end, which seems to be coming~people have this President's number. And many in the media.

Basically they are FOS PERIOD?

And there's this report that gives a clear pictures of our troops casualties @ http://www.defense.gov/news/casualty.pdf


Sadly. Just dry numbers but there are plenty of stories available on line that puts faces to them.
With all due respect Mr. Sargentodiaz (your are talking about the Iraq war.) Republicans are using this issue to manipulate and lie to people. Iraq had nothing to do with Sept 11, and it was GW Bush and Cheney that attacked Iraq.

1,000's of US soldiers are dead, blind, and paralyzed because of Bush's Iraq war. Did you ever see a republican feel bad about it while Bush was in office? (no republicans did not care.)

100,000 innocent Iraqi people were killed in Bush's Iraq war. Did you ever see a single republican feel bad about that when Bush was in office? (no republicans did not care.)


Republicans never cared about dead US soldiers until Obama inherited Bush's Iraq war. This thread is not about respect for US soldiers, its about bashing Obama for Bush's war.

Where is all this oil we got? Mythological talking point?

>600 soldiers died in Afghanistan during Bush, and >1700 have died under Obama.

<4200 died in Iraq under Bush, and >250 died in Iraq under Bush.

That means that under Bush, approx. 4800 troops died across both theaters. Under Obama, >1950 have died across both theaters.

Bush's Pentagon "killed more American troops" than Obama's has. Add to this the fact that Bush's administration is what got us over there in the first place and you have a seriously failed attempt to deflect the blame for conservatives getting our men and women in uniform killed over pointless conflicts.
You are hiding from facts.

Obama chose to escalate the Afghanistan War, period. This was a choice he did not have to make. 3/4ths of the deaths have been on his watch and what is the payoff? Nothing. We have gained nothing from that choice.

You can spin, you can divert, but Obama has made a choice that hasn't paid off and cost lots of lives. Where is the media on this? Where are the pictures caskets with flags draped over them?


As to your diversion:
Congress approved of both. Majority of Democrats in the US Senate voted for both and could have blocked both.

The US casualties in Iraq were at the start. Bush's monthly totals at the end were no different than Obama's.

Obama didn't inherit an easy task. Bush stunk, as did Clinton's mismanagement of the economy (China to WTO = massive increase in outsourcing, repeal of Glass Steagall, NAFTA, etc...)

Well, Mister Chad3, President Bush NEVER laid out Rules of Engagement that put our troops in harms' way. If you would READ the link, you would discover that Obama's rules are making it almost impossible for our troops to defend themselves.

I suppose the Liar-in-Chief feels braver sitting in some dark room ordering drone attacks that do little to differentiate between the good and bad guys.

And tell us where that oil is at? Is Bush hiding it in secret tanks in Texas?
