    Turkey has been America's ally since the 1950's and sent troops to fight in both the Korean War and Vietnam War. :cool:

    My point obviously missed was the troops leaving one war for yet another. I thought that was clear by my comment of "They are being pulled from Afghanistan, from the fire into the frying pan". I guess everyone assumes political instead of thinking of the men and women who are being slung into each of these messes.

    There have been partisan hacks who have brought up these troop movements and made them out to be some kind of dictatorial behavior on Obama's part. As if no President has ever ordered troop movements before to protect our interests or honor our international commitments to our allies.

    That's why you saw the reaction you did in this topic to this point. Some of us are starting to get a little testy over the manufactured bullshit.

    The article stated that is where they were coming from, thus my comment.

    Last night when I made the post at 2 AM, I was half asleep, but I made no mention of Obama, only the troops-- however I do see I placed this in poltics and not military. So perhaps that was my mistake.
