Liberal anti-war folks can be excused from this thread since they have for the most part been pretty consistent on this issue, but I've got to ask my conservative friends, what happened to screaming "cut and run liberals" or "It we don't fight them over there they will follow us home" the two big mantras for supporting the war in Iraq which by the way had absolutely nothing to do with terrorism?

For me, I don't think it is fair for our men and women to be risking their lives under the command of someone of no substance like Barack Obama. Get them out of there now.

I agree with your observation that many who were cheering on this insanity for 8 years got a change of heart. Coincidentally when Obama took office. Now all of a sudden they pretend to care about our troops and want to bring them home.

funny how that works.

Would you want to serve in a war zone under the command of someone like Barack Obama who never had a real job in his whole life? Oh yeah, community organizer is great experience to be CIC. <sarcasm>

GWB and Cheney had the welfare of the troops in mind first and poll numbers last. I don't think you can say this about Obama. I don't want our men and women risking their lives for a man who cares more about popularity than the lives of our men and women.

So glad to amuse you. Obama is a self centered self serving fool. No man or woman should have to risk their life for this fool. My opinion.

But they are not "serving" just Obama...they were supposed to be preventing total terrorism meltdown if we pulled out of there.

Is the threat gone because you don't like Obama?
