Saying It’s Over

…doesn’t make it so.  The reality is that U.S. troops are still in harm’s way.

The hype around the change of mission, which allowed President Barack Obama to say he was fulfilling a pledge to start ending the unpopular war, set off complaints among some soldiers left behind who were no longer viewed as combat troops.

U.S. military convoys are still shot at and bombed, and bases are mortared, despite a change in the name of the U.S. mission from Operation Iraqi Freedom to Operation New Dawn.

About Just Vegas

I'm a 30-something married SAHM which means the nightmare scenario that plagued my early 20's has become reality. Funny thing is, I kinda like it. I have 3 lovely daughters who are educated at home and at a part-time alternative school. I love animals and I love people (in the general sense, not everybody all the time). I have no income to speak of, I'm not crafty and I hate cooking. My skills include reading the internet, watching tv on the internet and conversing with people on the internet. I'm an armchair philosopher, spiritualist, agnostic, feminist, liberal, activist, political pundit and tv critic.

    There was a big article in our local paper, too, about a bunch of hundreds of soldiers being shipped out there from our area. So MORE SOLDIERS ARE STILL GOING. This doesn’t look like “coming back” to me.

    Really? And you’re shocked, why? The further we get from what the framers of the constitution wanted for the future generations, the more we see that there is no difference from Republicans or Democrats. We have no business being there, or anywhere else in the world. What, Europe can’t protect itself? Japan? If we’re attacked, nuke ’em. But bring the troops home. Screw the rest of the world.

    It’s too bad that we live in a world filled with hate, instead of love.

    Hey, Amy, let’s all sit around at the UN and sing “Kumbaya!”
