    This has to be the most anti-American, troop hating board I've ever been on.

    Really? As a 20-year-"troop," I'd say I'm entitled to an opinion. I'm neither anti-American, nor troop-hating because I believe you do what you have to do to accomplish the mission.

    Yeah it sucks. You sign on the dotted line and you suck it up and go forward. There is NO ONE currently on active duty on their first enlistment that did not enlist AFTER we were at war. There's no excuse for not honoring a commitment.

    I really love how people who have no idea what it's like to be in the military, nor to run it, like to run their sucks about those who do.

    When the US has been totally committed to war, and it's military in for the duration, we have achieved resounding victory.

    When the US has half-assed at war, and the effort undermined from within by the left, we have not.

    Not rocket science to figure THAT out.

    And coming from the mouth of a "troop," I despised people like you.

    I understand your point of view However I know some "troops" personally who agree with me and not you.

    I guess its a matter of opinion.

    But the fact that we are severly overtaxing our troops and the figures on post tramatic stress and how it is effected by these current increased tours I feel facts are a much better indication of why this is a bad idea other then one vets oppinion no matter how much I appreciate his service to Our country.

    I guarantee you, whoever those troops you claim agree with you are, don't constitute enough to even get a percentage point.

    Y'know, before some pantywaist like you invented PTSD, there was no such thing. Odd that.

    Actually, I think there was, they just called it something different. I think it was "Shell shock."
