So here we go again. As more of our sons and daughters go into combat, even though the president will once again not declare this a war action, our veterans will have to wage war on the Department of Veterans Affairs, just to get their benefits if they are injured or even worse, killed.

By sending an aircraft carrier and special forces back into this hot bed of people who hate us, we are once again being set up for more American dead servicemen and women, and the possibility of our people over in that country being killed and or captured.

No wonder our service people are going AWOL at an alarming rate. It’s past the time to throw away American lives at this lost cause anymore and the billions wasted in the process. Your income tax and mine is paid every year or else, while the government throws away billions to an unaccountable White House.

Wake up, America! Where is your voice?

    Couldn't agree with you more Mr. Losado,,,,,,,,,,, this new Iraq B.S. may make a barrel of oil cost $200,,,,, in 2008 the economical meltdown was caused by an average barrel being $140. Im not a radical whatsoever,,,,,,,,,, but when the sh** really hits the fan, what will become the most important commodity? The American dollar is backed by our military and nothing else.

    I wonder what President McCain would do presented with this situation? Would he pull an Army Division out of Syria to protect Baghdad?

    PORNAC To answer your question McCain is not in charge and we do not have an army division in Syria.

    I see your snrk! and raise you one. Al must be taking his meds. I agree with him this is not a "boots on the ground" issue. I'm thinking drones.
