Before anyone posts read this carefully. This thread is a Adult converstation, between NEM and myself. It will be full of opinion. If you attack another member of the forum, I will ask for it to be shut down. If you have something to say use some tact and explain your opinion or present your fact. Response such as "bmf31c is a big dumb jerk" while basically fact cannot be substantiated and should not be submitted to this thread, start a new one for that. I specifically ask that Harry Boy, patriotspride and Turd veer away from this thread. Unless you have something meaningful to add please keep your agendas in other threads.

IN fact, it was declared "acomplished" some time ago, if I recall,and since then, the person who declared it "accomplished" has changed what the misssion is, over and over again. With what we now know, wouldn't it make more sense to just bring home all of our men, and women, ALIVE, before many more are killed trying to complete a mission that no one even knows what it is? Because, IMO, if we stay, we wil be having this same discussion over and over again for many more months, or years...and just think how many more Americans will be killed in that time frame...and, in the end, WE WILLBRING THEM HOME, and nothing in Iraq will have changed. Think about it. If YOU care for the troops in Iraq, and I believe you do, why would you want to continue to throw them to the wolves, to die, for what you know to be lies and deceit? WHY? BTW, your comments, that we have to complete the mission are the talking point words coming out of the administration. And, you fall into the trap, as so many do.... and I can understand it...but as an intelligent person, who cares for yuor fellow comrades in arms, think about what I said....because if not, we lmight be having this conversation again, a year from now, and the only thing different will be the number of dead Americans. Is that what you really want? I do not, and as am AMerican who loves my country, and the troops thaat fight for it's security, I want them home alive NOW...not in body bags.
