    My son-in-law was driver in a Bradley that hit a large mine (“IED”, hell - it’s a mine if it acts like a mine) that tossed the whole thing something like thirty-five feet end-over-end.

    Everybody (including, apparently, for a while, Steve) was sure he was dead.

    He walked away from it.

    Now that usama bin-$#ithead is gone, bring our troops home NOW! We could have gotten plenty of information about bin-$#ithead without the illegal invasion by the cheney-shrub misadministration. cheney-shrub gave him (it?) a free pass. All they were interested in was Iraqi oil, and valuable natural resources in Afghanistan. To make matters worse they did their illegal wars off the books and gave the megarich undeserved tax breaks.

    Anyone know the date of the previous strip in this arc?

    You tell ‘me, Clark Kent. I’m sure Barack Obama, Robert Gates and the Joint Chiefs read Doonesbury in GoComics everyday. Your message has been received. (Write your congressman, Sup.)

    I think the last time we saw Ray, he was on leave and BD had to bail him out after a brawl. Ray said he’d come to prefer life at the front. Now he may be forced to go home.

    ^Which makes his life a living hell no matter where he is.

    Clark Kent said, “…All they were interested in was Iraqi oil, and valuable natural resources in Afghanistan.”

    I agree…

    How would we have gained the intelligence if not there? How would we have a base for the helecopters to deploy from if not there? Inquiring minds want to know. Media victories are needed. Should have waited until Aug 2012.

    So where is all this Iraqi oil that we were supposed to get? Last time I filled my car, gas was almost $4/gallon.

    I think we were there for a dozen reasons, some directly contradictory to others. In other words, our foreign policy is borderline schizophrenic psychotic.

    there’s no lack of supply of oil. Just greedy futures buyers that think something’s going to happen to it. First quarter oil profits went up again…..

    big bucks for Halliburtin….very nasty blowback for us, and more to come, not to mention the tide of PTSD husbands who find mental illness and domestic life and no jobs so boring compared to the thrilling roulette of war…

    wcorvi - nothing borderline about it.

    If this doc has any scruples, Ray won’t be doing any more patrols. He is way past the limits of human endurance no matter what he thinks.
