    The rules prohibit theft of whole articles. I think you need to clip that.

    There's the first and second problems. Needs to be updated for Obama's plans in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Third problem, misrepresents Muslim rioters in France.

    Fourth problem.
    It seems the writer is uncomfortable with the United States going to war with an enemy that doesn't wear a uniform, a 'phantom' as he puts it.
    Too bad.
    You have to fight the enemy that is, not the enemy you want.

    I'd be willing to shoot at him daily if he's willing to pay me enough.

    I'm disappointed. I'm a conservative looking at this from a neutral position, focused only on the soldier. Thought I would get some feedback from the like who may also try to take their perspective.... left or right. They certainly earned their position, right or wrong.

    What perspective are you fishing for, that some people become addicted to adrenilene rushes?

    War doesn't define anyone, its a mean and nasty business that is about killing to get your way.
