I almost can't believe you just said that.
I am a honored to have voted for Barack Obama in the Texas primary election. (early voting).
I did it for my son Oliver. I will not vote for a man who likes the idea of endless wars.(McCain)
So McCain is a fan of "endless wars" because he supports this
war? That's a bit extreme.
I love my son and my country far too much to vote for such a mistake.
You know, once in a while, someone posts something here that actually makes me truly angry. This is one of those times. the clear implication of your statement is that anyone who loves is family and country will agree with you. How dare you, you sanctimonious hack.
Sorry you don't see it the same way..
Let me tell you what I see. I see that the alternative's lone claim to fame is that he "didn't vote for this war." Well that's great, Obama. Great. Except we're fucking there
now. Doing a dance in the end zone about how you didn't vote for it, wouldn't have voted for it, no way, now how so help you GAWD may sound great, but it's meaningless crap.
The only question is what you want to do NOW. And here's what you want: What you want is to pull out of Iraq just as we have finally gotten the upper hand. You want to leave so AQI can reestablish itself, undoing everything we and the Iraqi people have sacrificed for over the past 5 years. You say the war was a mistake, based on lies by GEORGE BUSH and JOHN MCCAIN, there was no AQI before the war, etc. Fan-fucking-tastic,
but even if so, it simply doesn't matter at this point.
Perhaps you could apply some of your talk of the future to you Iraq position?
Of course, perhaps you have a magic time machine where we can make all the intelligence mistakes and management mistakes of the war disappear. In fact, yes that will come in handy when you need to go back and undo the mistake of sending troops back into
Iraq to die after pulling them out prematurely.
That's what I see.
