US Military Pulling Out Poll (Page 4)
BlueOlive2: I say get out of everywhere..come home take care of our country for once ...who can we help if our country goes belly up? no one..start fixing us I say
Nicotina2: Fog - "As a soldier whose nation is currently involved in the conflict and the withdrawal thereof; I have a lot more to add than you."
Once you realize that we are all connected and life is not about "us" against "them", I think you might start to understand how useless killing others is.
Your say is no more important than anyone elses in the world.
We are all equal, we are all human.
We need to get all the "troops" from every country back home where they can be with their families and loved ones. Instead of being maimed, injured or killed in the name of lies and corporations.
Right now your government is doing what you think only other countries governments are doing. Exactly the same way the government of the country I live in is.
It's horrific and the only way to end it is to say "No more!"
Edit - spelling

there is a big party going on
thanks for the post
pilgrim12: We should all come out not piece meal,country by country ,that leaves the last nato country there taking a lot of casualties,i'm in the uk military and although troops will be cut we have no definate full withdrawal after all its under nato mandate not americas ,i just hope we all pull out together.
jusman: let all the soldiers in Afghanistan,Iraq,Libya. it means Obama let them die. Dont you see ? everyday,.. At least 1 to 5 Nato (American) die. I realize that Obama is afraid of Taliban...
Prior to becoming President, he never had been exposed to, educated or trained or had any experience in world affairs, domestic affairs and never held a leadership position or actually ever been a supporter of the US Military, it's use of power, or the correct use of diplomacy. It shows. Latest polls show American overall approval rating is in the high 30's to low 40's. Another 400,000+ Americans applied for un-employment last week. As far as being afraid of the Taliban, hell, I'm afraid of the Taliban. Difference is, I would not have told them that I was retreating. Any military leader knows that when the enemy is retreating, you advance even harder. The same goes in foreign policy decisions and reactions to those decisions.
Official US unemployment rate is 9.1% and the un-official unemployment rate is around 17%...not 40%. The US military spends about 400 billion a year to pay for everything (arms, pay, infrastructure, etc.) which is a drop in the bucket compared to the expenditures of trillions of dollars per year for everything. The biggest expenditures, approximately 80% of the budget, is spent on social programs. The US economy is not based on war materials.
Go to the an official US Government web-site to get the official unemployment number.
The US is paying the interest on the debt and not a single dime more.
prune_99: The republicans want too keep troops there indefinetly well they are fucking idiots and don"t have a clue. Watch the latest jon stewart clip it's hilarious. "there seems to be a trend among republicans, they're all saying crazy things!!!" Typically u send troops there, get the job done, and bring them home u never ever leave troops somewhere indefinetly. Also this isn't a deficit thread u wanna talk about that make a new thread.
And I'm an idiot for not listening to a comedian on a political comic relief show who will say anything to get a laugh to get my news?
And no, I'm not a Republican.
prune_99: his team spents hours researching and fact finding that whole clip is factual and uses live factual news feeds from republicans themselves.
prune_99: that's all u need genius it's fact finding I know ur a republican from ur responses now. it's the same idiotic jackass ones that the republicans give on capital hill
You're an idiot. You obviously can't read. I said, I am not a republican. Quit watching TV. You have allowed yourself, chosen to allow yourself to be manipulated and are under the control of propagandists. It has rotted your brain, or what's left of it.
