“For those that say "WE" should do this and "WE" should do that, those that use the word "WE" should go ,"THEY (WE)" need to actually pick up the pieces of bodies of the children . Or worse yet these "WE" people need to hear the wailing and screaming of the parents of the children who have just become the victims of bombs or artillery. "WE" people make me sick, because they won't have to police up the bodies days later.
"WE"people believe the lies. The battle for Falluja started because 4 American's got lost in Iraq and our "WE" government now using our soldiers as their body guards for oil companies that price gouge us here in the U.S. and brag about "Record Profits".
Picking up children we killed in Vietnam, I'm sorry I ever fired into that hootch. I see this daily for the last 43 years and I hear the screaming.
You "WE" people should send your kids or grandkids. Join the Infantry, they need take part in YOUR "WE" ideas. Firsthand experience, Right?
The reward for Iraq?. Nothing!
4,700 of America's Finest dead.Thousands maimed and scores who like me who "believed" and came home changed forever.
I served honorably, I'm not a guest of the war profiteers in their luxury suites at the Super Bowl or even the World Series like the cowardly politicians are?
I'm tired of old men making up wars for young men to die in.

“welcome home sarge. have you joined vfp (veterans for peace) yet?”
“As a former grunt, I've been there. My mother didn't bring me up to do these things. Vietnam 1967,
Am I to believe that My Lai was the American way? I served in the same unit as "our" famous General, who was known as the "Delta Butcher"”
“I would suggest cutting benefits to illegal aliens, deporting those in our federal and state prisons,and hefty fines for those that hire them.
I served this Country as an Infantryman in Vietnam, am disabled AND am an American of Mexican descent.”

“Excellent idea!The state of Florida alone expends about 2 billion a year for illegals.The government does not track the cost of illegals in this country, from an educational,medical, and social standpoint.Wonder why?”

“So,that not give not right to racism or desecrate the Constitution.
What I believe is missing from most of these posts is that those who voted Mr. Bush in for another "Go-Around" also have the blood of 4,370 (about 100 young lady soldiers) on their hands. They bought the lie the first time and voted him in for a second term because deep down inside, while wondering "why he was attacking Iraq?", when the terrorists safe haven was Afganistan, those, NOT WILLING TO TO ADMIT THEY MADE A MISTAKE , let their pride interfere with what was right. Such a shame that our young soldiers (both men and women) bought into the lies and signed up. Yes, those that voted form him need to visit those that survived in the VA hospitals to see the actual price that was paid. It's unfortunate that Americans are so caught up with NFL,Paris, Lindsey and every reality show on TV, that very few thoughts go to the survivors of those who returned in flag draped caskets. Please remember the sell job that was done on the death of Pat Tillman and the "Real Jessica Lynch Story" which when told by her wasn't the same as Donald Rumsfield's. God Bless Jessica for setting the record straight.

“He has and will "NEVER GET IT," reminds me of Robert McNamara.
I would think that both Bushes, while throwing out the first pitch of the World Series would at least consider the 4,370, servicemen (AT LEAST 100 OF THEM YOUNG WOMEN) someone's daughters, would have loved to see a World Series game from the Bush seats. I hope that my Almighty maker is more forgiving than I.

“As a vet may I remind you that it is an all volenteer miltary and Sadam Hussein Killed hundreds of thousands of his own people ( just like hitler did the jews) and had to be stopped. Oooo Raaaah”
“I'd like to have this "poor excuse of a man" for awhile. I have a bad back but I could deal with that later. He probably went home and hid behind his wife's skirt or he's in the closet. I can see it now, "We got enough guys, lets jump her!" or "Whatda ya think, can we take her?"”

“He was so revved up by his stomping, he probably went home & beat his wife... then blamed her for his bad back too - wonder if that's how he got it?”
