That will never change. And if I died and protected a fellow soldier then I died for a reason. The reason doesn't make sense to you, but it's not supposed to.

Still not getting it, are you?

If Dubya hadn't lied about Iraq, nobody would have died.

Sorry, don't think you're getting it. I see what you're trying to say, but you're missing my point, which is fine. It involves things you're simply not going to be able to grasp. Not due to lack of intelligence, but to lack of experience.

If you really want to figure it out go to your local VA and have a chat. Explain to the Vietnam vet how his friends wouldn't have died if there wasn't a war. Explain to your OIF and OEF vets the same thing. See how much they care about politics when it comes to that issue.

Yeah, I remember sitting in a hospital waiting room with my family - waiting to hear if my Navy Corpsman uncle was going to survive after being blown out of a foxhole in Vietnam. He jumped in to help a couple of guys who had just gotten hit, and got hit himself.

I wouldn't understand.

I did. My father was USAF, and so was his older brother. His younger brother was the Navy Corpsman, and my mother's brothers both seved in the Navy also.

I spent two years working as a ward clerk in a VA hospital, and worked with hundreds of vets and their families. I know a little bit about sacrifices and what constitutes a valid reason to send people to die.

You should be really angry at all the Democrat members of congress that voted for the war then huh.

So back to the OP, isn't it odd that no one ever hacks any of Obama's stuff or digs into his history? Crazy how that never happens.

I am angry at the Dems that voted for the war. I'm angry at myself, also, because I also bought BushCo's lies about Iraq.

The Argument was compelling at the time when you have former Joint Chief and retired 4 star Colon Powell making the case.

It was compelling.

I wonder if Powell hates himself for playing that part?

American Government is a joke.

No one gives a **** at why you're angry. You derail everything and any meaningful discourse among other members on this forums. Why don't you just go away?

Because Obama manufactured intel to justify the invasion of a country that was never a threat to us, and 4500+ US troops died as a consequence?

Sure.
