Global War on Terror (as of Sept. 30, 2006)

My personal opinion is that I believe in fighting for freedom for others if they are willing to fight for themselves. I am not seeing that willingness from Iraq or Afghanistan. We are shedding the blood of my brothers for political expediancy. We should send our politicians over there and bring our soldiers home. And, I mean all of the miserable scum we have in Washington D.C. The stink that they would carry with them to Iraq and Afghanistan would force mass evacuations by our enemies and the people who live there.
