The objectives of the surge have been achieved and completed. My goodness, how can I forget. The elections are two months away. Oh, my goodness. What have I done. They should have stayed back to catch Mullah Umar or Ayman al Zawahiri or protect Harry's pink backside. Salams

Welcome home Heroes and the Republicants today welcome you home too by filibustering a jobs bill that would help us vets, and you guys find jobs if you decided to leave service. With vets unemployment at 10.9%. They claim the care about the Military.

Bootstraps and borrowing money from daddy. Oh wait... Daddy doesn't have a lot of money, that is why many enlisted... Oops. Someone needs to tell the GOP their ideology has many flaws.

They already have several items passed to help us out. One is a cut to employers who hire us, lots of vet affairs assistance with jobs/resumes, lists of companies hiring vets, laws to hold our jobs... Whatever was put forward is likely an extension of something already out there.

I thank all these brave men and women for their contribution to America and the world. Let's bring them home and welcome them with the dignity they deserve, And let's promise them that we will continue to compensate them for their efforts. We will never be able to pay them what we owe. But we can try.

It was their choice to serve. We owe them what we committed to them, I completely agree. But the military is a job. We live in a regulated capitalistic nation. That means we must deliver on our contract, but no more. We need to get out of the middle east. After that uprising from a video, I'm done helping these nations. Let them get murdered by their dictators. Fools.

Agreed. Fanned.

So, if a cop is in trouble he shouldn't call for back up and reinforcement?

That has absolutely nothing to do with the comment. Our soldiers do not leave people behind (well in theory). The comment was valid. And after seeing the reaction to the video, I think it is even more so relevant. America isn't innocent. But we dumped a lot of money in the middle east. And, I doubt we'll ever see a return in our investment. Unlike Obama investing in the car companies. Yet, the GOP supports the wars but critiques the auto bailout... Come on...

I see your point but why did we go there in the first place? Saudis attacked us so Bush attacked Afghanistan. There seems to be a disconnect there.

The year 2024. Keep that year in mind when thinking about the US leaving Afghanistan.

Yes, a quagmire. You'd think Bush would have talked to Condi about the Soviets... Guess not...

"Calling it a "very important milestone," Panetta said he believes the U.S.[Obama Doctrine Necessary War troop surge] is on track to accomplish its goals in Afghanistan."

A little levity, now that the re-election is sewn up.

The surge was Shrubs last idea: But Mr Bush declared he was bringing home just 8,000 US troops out of 146,000 currently serving in Iraq by February, the month after he leaves office. He will order the deployment of half that number to Afghanistan, acknowledging that "for all the good work we have done in that country, it is clear we must do even more".

You conservatives and your stupid revisionist history is something to behold. You should apply for a job in Texas helping them rewrite their history books. You are a natural for that.
