It boggles my mind that we are the greatest nation on earth, the most powerful and prosperous but our direction and future can be affected by special interest groups clamoring for their idiotic ideology.
Politicians fear losing their jobs and because of that they pander to the demands of their constituents. Decades ago politicians looked out for what they thought was the good of the country while also looking out for themselves.
There are those on the left that are completely ignorant and illogical when it comes to what is taking place on the world stage. I still scratch my head and can’t understand why there is this constant ranting that we need to pull out of Iraq. Do they equate the Marines with the Boy Scouts? What do they think the Marines are for. Do they believe they should all be stateside helping old ladies cross the street? Maybe we should put them to work cleaning up trash along the highways. They’d be safe. This is an all volunteer military!!!! There is no draft!! These men and women signed up. If a pole was taken among the military personnel in Iraq the majority would not want to come home until the mission is accomplished and things are stable there.
These crazy liberals know nothing of Jihadism, the workings of Iran, or the mindset of the Middle East. We need an American/Western presence there. Iraq is next to Iran and on the other side is Afghanistan. We are nicely sandwiching Iran, keeping an eye on them. If we pull out of Iraq it will be a disaster of great proportions.
I can’t fathom that American policy is steered by groups of people who are ignorant and foolish. The rest of the world watches and shakes it’s head that so great a vessel is controlled by such an uneducated population. The only people who are happy with this are our enemies.
