Don’t leave a single American behind

By From page A10 | June 29, 2014

No apologies, no regrets and no justification for bringing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl home.

No American soldier should ever be left on enemy soil, dead or alive. Bring them home by any means necessary, even if you have to make a deal with the devil. The good old boys hate President Barack Obama so much they are willing and ready to give up our child to the enemy. Every American soldier who wears the American flag on their shoulder and fights for our freedom, that soldier belongs to every American citizen.

Too many innocent lives have been lost and destroyed fighting the “Bush War.” Not one more drop of American blood should be lost in Iraq, Afghanistan or the Middle East fighting the Bush War. They broke it and all the king’s men cannot put it back together.

President Obama should remove American citizens from Iraq, and let the people destroy themselves. They have been fighting this war before the birth of Christ. So much pain and suffering. Why should American soldiers keep giving their lives so the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer, in a never-ending war?

The good old boys did not want President Obama talking with the Iranian president, then the table turned and Sen. John McCain suggested on national television that President Obama should talk to the Iranian president. President Obama wants peace, and to talk with the enemies. The good old boys want war, calling President Obama weak. The people in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan and any other country should choose their president without interference.

We African-Americans suffer for more than 300 years of peace, and the good old boys have not accepted President Obama.

We should help those children who crossed the border into America by opening up the closed bases and housing, and place the children in those houses. Then they can get food, medical care and schooling. Help the Red Cross, churches and volunteers is the right thing to do.

    Agreed. The Bush War caused a tremendous amount of suffering and national debt. Of course the rich got richer, but the rest of us will continue to pay for decades.

    Mike. Last time I looked,the war on poverty hasn't gone too well. Talk about a waste of money. Rather than talk about the rich getting richer why don't you do work as hard as they did to make their money. Then you can give the money out as you wish.

    So you don't think any price would have been too high to pay to bring him back? What if the terrorist asked for 5 nuclear bombs, would you have been okay with that? What if they asked for every single terrorist we have in custody? Would you have been okay with that? What if they had asked for the five most dangerous terrorists that we have in custody? Would you be okay with that? Oh yeah, you were. The question is not about bringing every American back, it's about the price we have to pay to bring them back. Yes, there is too high of a price to pay and Obama paid it.

    Ms, of course you can take any argument to absurdity. That doesn't work in high school debates and it doesn't work here. The price paid was five old guys, not five nuclear weapons.
