Do You Really Support the Troops?

Another broken campaign promise...
" I will promise you this, if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do, I will get our troops home, we will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank." Oct.27, 2007

Well that hasn't happened. Instead Obama sent more than 30k troops to Afghanistan.
Call it a surge or an escalation whatever, people are going to die.
He also promised to "end all combat operations in Iraq by August 31, 2011" but that has also been changed to the end of this year. 50k troops will remain behind to keep an eye on things and protect our interests.
I wonder how many Xe/Blackwater mercs will remain?

If you really want to support the troops than stop waving your flag, pull the yellow ribbon sticker off your car and call the White House.

Afghanistan is another of those "those that forget or ignore history are doomed to repeat it" scenarios. Ten years, trillions of dollars, soldiers & civilian casualties, all for what?
Was anybody paying attention to what happened to Russia in Afghanistan?
Apparently not.

Would anyone pay attention if the troops wanted out?
