    I was amazed to see John McCain whining about leaving Iraq. Maybe I'm missing something??

    Johanns supports Obama's withdrawal from Iraq

    Lets take a poll and maybe someone with a 3-digit IQ can explain why staying in Iraq, after the Iraqi government asked us to leave, is the preferred option.

    This is happening under Obama, so of the course the right says its not a good thing to end a war that was started over a lie.

    Bush = going to war based on fear, lies and sheeple believing them
    Obama = ending that war

    America, who do you support? Military families and members, you want to be at war for no reason?

    I'm no fan of Saddam. WMD was just an excuse for "regime change". If you recall, it was a "slam dunk" that Saddam had WMD, in fact the UN supported the action.

    However, don't cloud the issue of withdrawing with "regime change". Next you'll want to whine about waterboarding terrorists...

    If we are not wanted, let us go. We spent billions over there for them to be free but it wasn't our war in the first place. Our cause was with Afghanistan. We should be compensated for the lives that were lost, the training we gave and the infrastructure we built. That should have been negotiated long ago.

    Those brave guys and gals deserve to be home for the holidays..and spend some well earned time with their families. And we can use them here. Lots of work needs doing.

    It's time to let these Americans who want peace and family..have it.

    It's a good thing. And we need to stay out. Even if the country goes to hell.

    Four-thousand plus dead, 30,000+ wounded, a trillion dollars pissed away, and no oil.

    What a fucking fiasco thanks to Cheney and his loyal sidekick Lil' Bush.

    Yes, the UN supported the war. Its Secreatary General even declared it illegal.

    Read about the UN resolutions, and if Saddam didn't do this or didn't do that, then the previously approved UN resolutions were enforced, by a US led coalition of 37 nations!!

    I'm no fan of Saddam or his dead larvae. AMF.
