It really bothers me that people accuse me of not supporting the troops or not loving the USA when I write that I oppose the continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I do support the troops and I do love my country but I have opposed Iraq from the beginning and I wonder how long we will continue to pour money and lives into both. Will we continue for another year, two, ten, twenty years before we leave. Will we have accomplished anything lasting when we do leave? Has it been worth the loss of fathers and sons or the loss of legs or eyes when we decide that we have had enough? Then again I wonder will we leave those only to go into Yemen, Syria, North Korea??
