Comments: Response to Wanda

"... do something to help them come home."

I am: I'm paying taxes, following news (MSM here and abroad, blogs...), and insofar as I can supporting their mission - which if successful will not only bring most of them "home" but keep them here.

I am in Iraq right now and I know for certain that we are not forgotten, nor are we understaffed. Underpaid,yep; overworked, sometimes. What many don't remember is that we volunteered to do this job, knowing full well the risks inherent in our chosen profession. Nobody wants to be home more than we (soldiers) do, but not at the expense of leaving the mission not accomplished. If that means coming back next year, then that is what I will gladly do. I absolutely miss my family and friends, but there are things which must be done, first, before we can enjoy the freedoms that all of the antiwar crowd enjoys on a daily basis BECAUSE OF OUR SACRIFICES. Getting Iraq's governing bodies and priciples in place is one of those things.

My goodness, you spent all of that time trying to convince people who can never understand and whose ultimate reply is typically F-U. You have more hope and patience than do I. Excellent responses, though, for those of us who can think.
