Fixiated and asleep

Reader comment on item: My Gloom: Back to September 10

Submitted by Ed Brophy (United States), Dec 20, 2005 at 13:34

The constant blathering and whining "we'll bring the troops 'home' when we 'win' the war in Iraq" to me is a large problem. First, these are professional soldiers who don't necessarily need to come "home" to mommie and daddy and more than likely will go off to some other equally hot region of the world upon leaving Iraq. What does "win" mean? Must we eliminate each and every last terrorist and Bathist before they come "home"? The USA should project it's power with it's new F22 fighter jet rather than, constant, weak-kneed blather as this. The US people (the majority anyway) as well as our enemies(all of them) understand power. I agree with the theses that it is over (over there). Hopefully our leadership is getting ready to reinstall/redirect our power.
I doubt if Augustus Ceasar wasted such time and insulted the intelligence of the Roman citizens with such sensless blather. It is this droning on and on that is putting us to sleep.
