First and foremost ,I am thankful for the brave military that defend and have defended ourRead Morecountry. Many of them killed in battle and many more wounded. On March 3, 20003 we invaded Iraq. On May 2, 2003 President Bush declared Mission Accomplished, less then 14 months after we began our invasion. Of Course, the war was not won. Over 95% of military deaths came after the Mission Accomplished speech. Wars are not easily won, nor is the peace that supposedly followed is not easily kept. Because we never won the Iraq war. We never won the Afghanistan War. Fighting us now and the present Governments of these two countries are Terrorists. Terrorists taking advantage of the bungling officials that "rule". It doesn't matter who was in charge of our government when the wars were started or who is in charge now. Both wars were ill-conceived and poorly executed. Does anyone remember this exchange? CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait, Dec. 8 - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld came here Wednesday to lead a morale-lifting town hall discussion with Iraq-bound troops. Instead, he found himself on the defensive, fielding pointed questions from soldiers complaining about aging vehicles that lacked armor for protection against roadside bombs. Mr. Rumsfeld, seemingly caught off guard by the sharp questioning, responded that the military was producing extra armor for Humvees and trucks as fast as possible, but that the soldiers would have to cope with equipment shortages. "You go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time," he said. This was in December of 2004 , 18 months after the Mission Accomplished statement. Now we have people blaming Obama , sometimes in the most demeaning terms. Yet when Rumsfeld recently went on Cable News, no outrage at the man who had bloody his hands, sending ill-equipped brave military to their deaths in Tin can Humvees.... Demeaning remarks I see on many comment sites placing the entire blame on the present administration. Sworn to uphold their Ideology, blinded by their politic positions, they allow fanatics' to shape the debate. Shameful.
