AWFUL CLAUSE

CaliValleyGirl's boyfriend is deploying soon, and she voices many of the issues that I remember from this time last year. I must say that there is one clause that I am really starting to hate, one that I have been hearing more and more often: "When my husband was in Iraq the first time..."

1 Get used to it. Soon it will be third and fourth tours in Iraq. As long as Bush and his criminal gang are in charge of our country there will be no peace. War, deficits, and corruption are what they stand for.

2 Actually, they stand for peace, but sometimes war has to happen to get there. Corruption? Check your Dem buddies. My youngest heads to Afghanistan for his second tour there this spring, with one to Baghdad sandwiched between. That's his job. That's why he makes the "big bucks." Sarah, you sure do attract the trolls!

3 Can somebody bannanate this asshat? I still have yet to see *one* moonbat actually substantiate claims of "illegal" or "unethical" war, or give one example of when Bush actually "lied". Short English lesson: "criminals" have commited *crimes*. Violations of a country's laws: crimes. Things you personally don't like: not crimes.

4 The peace won through OIF and OEF will have real value, which would not be true of laying down and letting the terrorists subdue the rest of the world. That just leads to war on our soil later...

5 Actually my father fought in WWII from Kasserine in North Africa where Rommel stomped our butts in the first battle between Americans and Germans. He never returned home from the battlefield until the war ended for him in Ulm, Germany. No returns stateside, no R and R for Dad back in those bad old days. I guess this is a new military world of not fighting whenever you get your respite. To me there is something terribly wrong with this view of conflict as an interruptible, part-time job that you go back to after a break of sorts. I don't want to seem disrespectful to American troops now on the ground in Iraq, but we lost more than a quarter of a million of American fighting forces in Europe in the 40s and only the intels got weekends off. What you are going is a hard job in present terms, but believe me, times have been harder for your predecessors.
