There is no question we need to do a better job of taking care of our vets from, Iraq-I, Iraq-II, and Afghanistan. I mean, NO QUESTION!

It’s a pity the Shia and Sunni are continuing to slaughter each other on a regular basis.

But the U.S. is powerless to stop it; so, No, Iraq-III. PERIOD!

And somehow he thinks the outcome will be better this time? FOOL!

Imagine for a minute if McCain/Palin had won in ’08, how many wars we would be in: Iraq III, Syria, Ukraine, possibly Iran.

I mean, DAMN!

Veterans Watch as Gains Their Friends Died for Are Erased by Insurgents

Via: New York Times

A few weeks before their battalion was to get new mine-resistant vehicles, Capt. Adam P. Snyder, Pvt. Dewayne L. White and Sgt. Eric J. Hernandez were speeding toward a mission in Baiji, Iraq, when a roadside bomb engulfed their Humvee in flames, killing the two enlisted men. Captain Snyder, 26, died the next day, Dec. 5, 2007.

Matthew Adkins, then a self-described “butterbar” lieutenant, regarded the captain as a mentor, and his death leveled him. Hearing this week that Baiji was on the brink of being overrun by Sunni militants, he immediately thought of Captain Snyder, phoned his girlfriend, and cried.

“You think about those costs that can never be recouped,” Mr. Adkins said in an interview from Talkeetna, Alaska, where he works as a field manager for pipeline surveys. “I remember driving those Humvees to Balad Air Base to get our new MRAPs, and thinking if we had these things two weeks ago, they’d still be alive.”

Everyone from Mr. Adkins’s Army unit, the First Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, had hard memories this week, as insurgents made their way from Mosul down what the soldiers knew as Route Tampa — the main north-south highway — past Baiji on the way to Tikrit and other cities closer to Baghdad. From late 2007 until the end of 2008, the battalion had safeguarded the huge refinery at Baiji, often described as the most valuable asset in the country’s three heavily Sunni provinces in the north.

About 800 American troops lost their lives, and many more were wounded, in those territories, the homeland of Saddam Hussein and his Baathist loyalists. For the comrades of those fallen troops, the grim news this week has left them struggling to reconcile the sacrifices that were made with the speed and magnitude with which northern Iraq is falling to insurgents.

Perhaps the young soldiers can ask their Fathers and Uncles how they felt on April 29, 1975 when the saw  photos of U.S. helicopters lifting off the roof of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon.

Note worth remembering: President Johnson lied to the American people about the Gulf of Tonkin, and President George W. Bush lied to the American people about WMD’s.

If you need someone to blame, start with LBJ and Bush.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Vi: Raw Story

Old man yells at cloud

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said on Monday that he “felt a little lonely from time to time” because most of his colleagues did not want to use U.S. military force against President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in Syria.

‘Politizing’ now refers to Obama saying anything

Via: Wonkette

Blah blah Breitbart who cares, we know, but don’t you fancy this headline?

The poor sucker who had to update Breitbart.com on Memorial Day, and knew he had to slam Obama for speaking on Memorial Day somehow, settled on “Obama Politicizes Memorial Day” after Obama said that there shouldn’t be wars unless “absolutely necessary.”

This is what counts as politicization now: saying the same fucking thing every politician has said on Memorial Day every year since forever. PRO TIP: If you are considering making the argument “Politician politicizes X,” just go stick your head in the unflushed toilet for a few minutes instead. You’ll get more out of it.

Here’s the Reuters write-up that led Breitbart.com to conclude that Obama had “politicized” Memorial Day, the existence of which is more of a “politicization” than anything:

“As commander in chief, I can tell you that sending our troops into harm’s way is the most wrenching decision that I have to make,” Obama said shortly after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

“I can promise you I will never do so unless it is absolutely necessary and that when we do, we must give our troops a clear mission and the full support of a grateful nation.”

Boo!

Send them into harm’s way and don’t even care about it and do it when it’s not in any way necessary , and then don’t tell the troops what to do and give them zero support of a hateful nation, instead. In other words, Keep America Strong, because that’s the way it’s been done for centuries.
