Our troops have been bravely fighting for far too long.

Well, we've been in Iraq for five years as of Wednesday. And now we might be getting into the same thing in Iran. Nothing is certain, that's just my opinion. Ты think they'd actually learn after the first time. Ты know, maybe if we've been stuck in this damn place forever where it's kinda hard to withdraw, that we shouldn't do it again. But apparently that's not the case. Apparently, the куст, буш Administration is intent upon screwing up our country before the Далее President takes over.
Speaking of, I really think I will explode if another republican gets in office. Because all John McCain is going to do is KEEP us in Iraq and PUT us in Iran, killing thousands еще people. I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to go with a surge of troops in and then killed them all. That would probably mean a draft. еще people dying. Death, destruction. All because ONE person, Bush, made the decision that "Oh Iraq has weapons of mass destruction" one день on what seemed like a whim, has lead to us staying in Iraq for this long.
This is why I support the democrats. This is why I want Hillary или Barack to win. Once one of them is chosen, I do plan on campaigning или making phone calls или whatever I can do to help them win. I so badly want a democrat to win. Last night, I was feeling so angsty about the election that I was in tears with fear for the future of our nation. Which is kinda ironic if Ты think about it. All the Republicans are trying to do is make us fear. That's their goal it feels like.
But I don't want to stereotype republicans. I'm Друзья with a republican for chrissake, and he's a wonderful guy with a huge heart. Not all about that fear and whatnot. He's just a regular guy and even he agrees that we should be out of Iraq by now. However, unlike me, he believes куст, буш was telling the truth and had real reason for sending us into Iraq. That they actually might've had nukes pointed at us and that was reason to send in an army. I don't agree. I believe that there was no reason that we should've headed into Iraq on a whim. None what so ever. It was an idea that maybe they had weapons of mass destruction. There weren't any facts to back it up. But we just sent all the troops in there with no idea.
And now the same thing is happening in Iran. We're going to be in two wars that I feel are completely unnecessary. Imagine how many people will be dying every day. This war has been going on as long as World War II. And THAT is what's known in my world as a necessary war. Because, if we hadn't gone in there (based on the factual knowledge that the Nazis were killing millions of Jews) then еще people may have died. If any of our troops died there, it was for what I feel is a worthy cause. It was saving the lives of people being persecuted for their beliefs. That's a reason to send in an army. Not because we think that just maybe they might have nukes. Possibly.
One of my Друзья thinks that if Ты don't support the war, Ты don't care about the troops. I think exactly the opposite is true. By wanting to end this war, and bring our troops home, we're supporting them by saving their lives. Preventing them for being killed in battle for this seemingly worthless cause. That's really supporting our troops. Not sending them letters and not using metal and cutting back on Еда rations like they did in WWII. Supporting them is not helping them in battle, sending good vibes to help them do well. It's taking them out of it. Then, once they're безопасно, сейф and home, we can help them recover from the massive scar that they get from being in war. Drug addictions, painful memories etc. It's not that I don't believe in the troops или have faith in them или want them to do well. It's just I don't think they should still be there. As one of my Друзья so wisely states "We shouldn't have to support them. They should be at home
with their families, not fighting for a cause that they don't believe in." He then goes on to say "It's one of the reasons the American's Остаться в живых the Vietnam war. low morale. They didn't believe in what they were fighting for, but Vietnamese communists did."
Now, Ты have to ask yourself "Well, we found that they didn't have weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Why are we still there?" The reason is because we're propping them up. Supporting them because they can't really handle themselves. We're meddling in their country, that's all that we're doing by staying in Iraq. Yeah sure whatever we're "helping" them but I disagree. I think all that we're doing is causing trouble. Iraq, while having an evil dictator, was doing somewhat fine without us. All we're doing is causing them problems. And completely unasked. We just barged right in and decided to start a fight.
In conclusion, I want this war to be over. Now. It didn't have any affect on be until I found out that my friend's dad died over there. That made me cry. For him, for his dad. For the effect it would have on his life. This war is ruining lives. Family, friends, brothers, sister, sons and daughters are being slaughtered every day. And though it may seem like it's at the hands of the Iraqis, I think it's at the hands of our government.
With all due respect,
Notes: I'd like to thank Gavin for some incredibly insightful Просмотры quoted in this post. Also Michael for being the only Republican I know. Also Alex for not having an opinion. I would put this in the Дебаты spot if it were not for the fact I want this to be read by most EVERYONE on fanpop, not just the avid debaters.
No more war, bring them home and finally end this thing. Please.
