      This is a heart breaking decision the new rules of engagement are putting our HEROES in danger. WHY,WHY,WHY? Where are all the idiots in the pentagon? When will they STAND for our toops? This is a disgrace to our nation.

      When your general comes to you and says he needs X number of troops, you don't say, "I'll get back to you." or… "Nah, that's too many." You say: "Are you sure that's enough?"

      I'm all for the remote manless planes with missles, lots of them! Every Soldier should have one! If it crawls, it falls! Soon, no more anything there to uprise with or against and the War is over! No more Terrorist. If you find one, anywhere, implant them, let one of those drones loose, and problem's solved. Welcome to the 21st Century!

      You hurt me and mine, I'll remove you and yours. No question. The American way.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
