Another war ends... Iraq starts to implode

For those boomers who can remember.. how many wars have ended in your lifetime?
Does that not give you a moment of pause?


Thirteen years and more than 2,000 American casualties after it began, and a trillion dollars later the war in Afghanistan will conclude responsibly, President Barack Obama said on Sunday.

20 thousand wounded... while a small force remain, soldiers will face uncertainty and danger as long as they stay. And lets not forget, we are going to see more and more younger vet's with serious battle scares of the brain and body. Let's hope the new VA will take care of them all.

I get why we went... revenge was in our hearts...9-11 changed our thinking and young men and women realized patriotism was in and joined by the thousands. Even with the Taliban leader dead... our mission will most likely involve us going back in to fight a new more barbaric group of religious fanatics. Bombing them out of existence may prove fruitless. More beheading's will spur more retaliation on our part.

Perhaps we can hear from a veteran... of any war...to comment
