No surprises here, another chickenhawk telling us how vets feel because they tied a yellow ribbon or said thanks to some guy in a uniform once.
I joined the military understanding I could be sent to die...but not sent to die for a stupid reason like Iraq. To say "he knew what he was getting into" is not only stupid, but besides the point. Your leaders have a sacred responsibility to not throw lives away. They also have a sacred responsibility to maintain the security of our country, and that means that sometimes people get put into dangerous situations. This is why I just laugh at the bozos who "demand accountability" for the mess in Bengazi to the point where they have adopted a fictitious reality in their head to support their demented ideas, yet 10 years ago the clearest, best documented case of bullshitting the American people that led to thousands of American deaths and many, many more foreigners deaths was just something that happened. To compare Obama with Bush on any level of deception, any level of terrible spending decisions, any level of arrogance, is beyond laughable.
All of us got sucked into that mess, its a powerful statement on the ability of groupthink to control the population. I knew in my heart and my head the war was the worst thing to happen in my generations era, I knew why and how it got started, and still I had moments that I thought "wow, everyone else seems on board with this thing, could I be wrong?"
